The long-delayed Windows iteration of “Final Fantasy XV” finally has a release date of March 3. One of the notable rewards for early purchasers includes a special costume for main protagonist Prince Noctis Lucis. Until May 1, anyone who purchases Square Enix’s title through Steam will be able to dress up the lead character as Gordon Freeman, the lead character from the “Half-Life” series of PC titles.
The full Freeman outfit includes his orange Hazardous Environment suit, glasses and a free crowbar weapon. Furthermore, this outfit is available for use within the multiplayer Comrades gameplay mode that was added in a post-launch patch.
While the vision of Noctis bumming around Eos as “the one free man” may be an odd sight, it is far from the first cross-promotional endeavor for FF XV.
• The stylish Regalia, inspired by the Jaguar S-type, is one of the premium cars in “Forza Horizon 3.”
• A limited-time event, inspired by the “Assassin’s Creed” franchise, allowed Noctis and friends to dress up like the Assassins and take on an evil company dressed similarly to that franchise’s Templar antagonists.
• “Kingsglaive” began life as a prolonged full motion cutscene to give backstory to the game but ended its creative gestation period as a theatrical film.
• A series of animated shorts were produced in order to better flesh out the relationships between Noctis and his friends.
Although FF XV released in late 2016, Square Enix continues to add new updates, add-ons and spinoff releases. The most recent iteration was a super-trimmed version for mobile systems. Beyond the chance to dress like Gordon Freeman and whack “Daemons” with a crowbar, the Windows edition will offer options for 4K and 8K resolutions, first-person gameplay, a refined map and even a boat to traverse the world’s waterways.

One of the biggest perks of Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold subscription is the ability to get four free games every month. While these games are usually older titles, video game fans are never going to turn down the opportunity to get free games. After weeks of anticipation, the Xbox Games with Gold have just been announced for the month of March.
Two games will be available to download at the start of March. “Trials of the Blood Dragon” is a stylistic motorcross game on the Xbox One that is unlike anything we have ever seen from the “Trials” franchise. If you are a fan of the other games in the series, then you will enjoy “Trials of the Blood Dragon.” The other game available on March 1 is the video game adaptation of the Pixar movie “Brave.” The cartoon platformer may not appeal to many older gamers, but the kids will absolutely love playing “Brave.”
The final two games offered to Xbox Live Gold subscribers can be downloaded starting on March 16. “Superhot” is easily the most interesting of the four games coming in March. The first-person shooter creates interesting puzzles by freezing time when your character stops moving. This means your bullets will only move while your character is also moving. The unique game mechanic earned “Superhot” rave reviews from the critics when it was released in February 2016.
“Quantum Conundrum” was probably overlooked by most video game fans when it was first released on the Xbox 360 in January 2012, but it is a game that everyone should play. “Quantum Conundrum” was designed by same person that created “Portal,” so both games share a lot of similarities. The graphics and sound in “Quantum Conundrum” are not great, but it still has some of the best puzzles in video game history.
Once it is all said and completed, a venture that is ongoing for Rio’s Child Education Network will have increased quality and quantity in that sector by the year 2020. It takes assemblies of all different kinds of folks to ensure that the children are served by creating an all inclusive environment for those involved.
The Public-Private Partnerships, formed by Law No. 11,079 in the year 2004, established various guidelines for the Public Private Partnership within this public administration. Felipe Monotoro Jens explains this and more with regard to the development of the public administration as well as the private partners.
The IFC is paid R $2.3 million and according to Felipe Montoro Jens,is working thoroughly to make sure that every level of construction is done in in sync. The International Finance Corporation, is heading the facilities through a Public-Private Partnership.
A partnership between the IFC and Public-Private partnerships in Rio de Janeiro is important to the current group. Child care, building workers, as well as children, would profit from a successful pairing like the Public and Private sector hope to have here. Felipe Montoro Jens is a specialist and has closely monitored the current developments.
A way to fulfill needs in the current setup was to construct, maintain, and provide services to increase each child care network. Step two was the 20,000 new places in day-care centers and 40,000 new places in pre-schools. Both goals were very important to ensure the creation of a 21st century education network.
The capital of Minas Gerais had support from the current mayor of Rio de Janeior Marcelo Crivella. He appreciated the efforts, and the private sector created a project that involved the upgrading of the quality and quantity of child care places, completed in July 2012.

may finally have a director. In a Hollywood environment saturated with franchises and cinematic universes, a fair number of studios have looked toward video games as a jumping-off point. Sadly and despite multiple attempts, efforts to produce a glowingly-reviewed video game film have yet to bear fruit. One of the video game IPs being shopped around for the big screen is Call of Duty, a project that has been in development hell for years.
Activision Blizzard decided to establish its own film studio, with Call of Duty being planned as one of its big projects. If the studio’s co-presidents get their wish, the Call of Duty film will lead to a “Marvel-esque” universe.
Actualization toward a Call of Duty film reached new material with news that the studio is seeking out Stefano Sollima for his work on “Sicario 2: Soldado.” Beyond his work on Sicario 2, Sollima has handled multiple television projects and films like “A.C.A.B.” and “Suburra.” The studio’s interest in a director may be indicative that Call of Duty is nearing the final stages of pre-production.
Activision Blizzard’s interest in Sollima’s work could be reflective of a change in studio vision. While initial aspirations reflected the establishment of a cinematic universe, Activision would likely benefit from taking an approach closer to the realistic and brutal world of Soldado; more than one commentator remarked that Soldado’s first trailer reflected the visceral tone set by Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario.”
While Call of Duty currently lacks an official director, news pursuing a name marks a big step toward its creation. As things currently stand, Call of Duty only has a draft penned by Kieran Fitzgerald, whom will remain on staff. Neither a plot nor era has been revealed for the film; the game series has tackled military engagements during World War II, the near future of less than 100 years ahead and contemporary engagements.
After the massive backlash against video game publishing companies like Electronic Arts late last year, numerous politicians from around the globe have weighed in on the subject of loot boxes in games. Many of them call for an outright ban to them, with others demanding a review over their policies and ethics at the minimum.
United States Senator Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire has become the latest to join the cause, sending an open letter to the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) asking them to consider their internal review and rating systems in relation to games that include loot boxes. In it, she specifically cites the harm that these simulated gambling systems can and do have on children.
While there is still debate as to whether or not microtransaction-based loot boxes are a form of gambling (something Senator Hassan acknowledges in her letter), the fact that they so closely mimic gambling is cause for concern. She hopes to convince the ESRB to investigate as to whether or not loot boxes are marketed “in an ethical and transparent way that adequately protects the developing minds of young children from predatory practices.” She also urges that they collect data on how loot boxes are used by publishers and how players respond to them for future research needs.
While Senator Hassan has not joined the growing movement to have government regulators step in, she has posed the question as to whether or not loot boxes and microtransaction systems in video games should be a concern to all four Federal Trade Commission nominees recently. During the Commerce Committee hearing at which she posed these questions, she also made sure to point out that the ESRB is seen as extremely effective and a good example of what a voluntary enforcement board can accomplish.
It’s because of this last point that she feels confident progress will be made concerning loot boxes and their potential bad influence on children. Only time will tell whether or not her faith will be rewarded.
