Enhanced graphics aside, Xbox One X provides the best experience for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in overall.

Before taking a year off in 2019 from their action role-playing Assassin’s Creed game series, developer/publisher Ubisoft has released the latest installment of the franchise, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on October 5 for all major platforms.

It was also given an enhanced treatment for Xbox One X to offer the best visual experience on the console, which is currently considered as one of the most powerful system there is. The teams involved in development put their best effort to tell the most compelling stories though the game.

Capcom May Remake Resident Evil Remaster

While the world waits for the release of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom is considering more remake projects.

Before they made a showcase of Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference to an overwhelmingly positive response, even developer/publisher Capcom may not have thought that it could work out so good for them and now they are interested to keep rolling.

We heard jokes about their plan of making a remake of the 2015's remaster version of the original zombie shooter game Resident Evil of 1996 but apparently, developers at Capcom were not kidding about it at all.

RELATED: Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

Despite the temporary debacle regarding an overpriced typewriter included in the $900 worth Premium Edition of the game, fans have been nothing else but extremely supportive towards the upcoming release and that tells the company how much crazy people are over the world about the RE franchise.

Capcom even attempted of teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake by Tweeting an image of the game's villain Nemesis from their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July this year.

RELATED: Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake?

Needless to say, this Tweet has also ignited fire to fan's hype over more Remake projects on RE games in the future and Capcom neither defended nor denied the claim. During Gamescom 2018, director Kazunori Kadoi talks about their plans in an interview and says that, they are only concerned about January 25 right now.

Of course, they would love to explore the possibilities in future with other potential classic titles but at this very moment, they are not willing to commit to anything in advance.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake's Hardest Part Was Alligator

He believes that enough time has passed that they can remake the Resident Evil HD Remaster version and it won't look ridiculous. Besides, the idea of remake the remake is something they would love to work with and that is not for the sake of milking the franchise.

So much more could be done with a revamped fan-favorite game without feeding to nostalgia. A generation wide gap could bridge up between modern day players and seasoned veterans of Resident Evil series.

"Certainly enough time has passed that it wouldn’t be laughable to remake the remake. I personally think that would be an interesting thing to do."
RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Collector’s Edition Announced

Capcom also requests fans to not call the 2019's upcoming game as a remake, because they are simply revisiting old settings with a slightly altered storyline. Familiar faces like Claire Redfield and Sherry Birkin are being reimagined 20 years after their original debut.

Experience of the Spencer Mansion and Racoon City Police Department are brought back for fans to revisit. Since the 2002 HD Remaster is acclaimed for graphics and gameplay, they want to slightly tinker with that for improvement.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

If Capcom wants people to go back to the roots of their survival horror legacy from the very beginning with Resident Evil 2 Remake, it essentially isn't a bad thing at all. Games like Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4 would probably top at most fan's remake list when they do.

At least, it would allow players to enjoy those classic titles on modern day gaming platforms like PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X.

Original RE2 used to allow Claire’s launcher to fire different types of grenade rounds but as the Remake version allows players to craft their own ammunition, there are scopes for some potential experiment.

Ammo is very scarce, making it mandatory to pay mind towards resource management. In the middle of a zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, college student Claire wouldn't have survived in the first place among the undeads without her street smart attitude.

We Happy Few Secret Ending!

Survival horror title We Happy Few offers players a secret ending without forcing him to go through all the troubles.

Psychedelic horror game with action-adventure elements, We Happy Few from Compulsion Games and Gearbox Publishing is finally out for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although the game is slightly undermined after release despite much anticipation that was build around by player following its reveal, the game has a vivid interactive world and an engaging story. Recently, a shortcut is found to end the game very quickly without facing the twist and turn of events to reach conclusion.

To get the secret ending, you will start with Arthur Hastings' story after the game begins and he will be running his Redactor device to check and remove reference sources of tragedies regarding mind-altering campaigns of Wellington Wells. He will come across an article that refers to a tragic past regarding his younger brother Percy. This presents a quick turn of events to players with a choice to take a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy" to remove his sadness or try to think freely.

To go ahead and see what challenges the world of WHF has in store for you; most players would refrain from taking the pill. On the contrary, if Arthur ends up taking the Joy pill, he will go back to his happy life without ever meeting other playable characters Sally and Ollie to dig deep about the dark secrets the city hides from everyone. In recent memory, similar hidden ending was found in Ubisoft's action-adventure FPS title Far Cry 5, where you could see the game end in 10 minutes.

Of course, any gamer under normal circumstances would generally want to go through the entire story of the game once they get their hands on it but for some unknown reason, Compulsion Games decided to let people take a quick exit. So, anyone is looking for a quick way out to end credits, you know now how to get there.

Adding this secret ending was a fine nod to display how an indulged populace has become a social norm these days and how taking less aggressive actions can sometime get you out of situations. We Happy Few entered Steam's Early Access program after a successful Kickstarter crowd funding campaign and upon being delayed back in January, they even offered a refund. Finally, things were sorted out when Microsoft Studios acquired the studio and helped them launch the game on 10 August 2018.

Just like Arthur and Sally, Ollie had an awakening about the fact that the retro-futuristic city they live in has some terrible dark past and a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy" is doing that. Being a mad Scotsman and ex-soldier, he is not liked by everyone around him and he hates television celebrity Uncle Jack but he has an invisible friend though. Despite pitted against all odds, he did keep his Scottish heritage intact and even managed to survive in the Garden District nearing old train station.

On their take on Ollie's character, art director Whitney Clayton wanted to go for someone who is a tough nut to crack. While he is still wearing his old military jacket and old army boots, he is more than a soldier who notices the anomaly of his society. Although he may not remember all of his past in entirety, he finds purpose in life upon discovering secrets of the Victory Memorial Camp. Like the other two playable figures, Ollie Starkey has his unique perks and abilities that will help him uncover the truth.

One of the few people that see through the dark history of the city of Wellington Wells is Sally Boyle and she is in a race against time to run away from her terrible neighbors. While the artificially-enthused society around her constantly wants her to indulge in a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy", she is looking for a way out of this forced madness upon them. For her grooviest fashion sense, Sally is deemed as a wonderful girl in this alternative reality, retro-futuristic city of 1960's England.

Aside from being a chemist who assists one of the doctors in creating Joy, she is very dazzling and witty. During her character design process, art director Whitney Clayton wanted her to be both a clever chemist and an iconic social figure that everyone knows. However, her glamorous and smart outlook is just a front to hide her secret past that can get her killed if it ever comes out. Her unique appearance and stance is heavily inspired by 60's fashion models like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick.

Undoubtedly, NEXT is so far the biggest update ever to hit the game and we are about to talk about what are the studio adding to it. Multiplayer aspect is very much co-op focused where you can gather your band, build base, go on missions, race against each other and share your resources, which is basically helping your neighbor out. You don't have to start again to explore all that, if you have a save file where you have already spent long hours, you are good to go from your existing play.

Aside from multiplayer features, Hello Games has plan for content drops, new rewards and free weekly missions.
