IDL NEWS – Backwards Compatibility, Call of Duty, and Definitive Islands

Oh that mid-week lull . . . probably makes news much more dull?

So, as I pointed out yesterday, the summer months are not very interesting when it comes to video game news and releases. September is where the fun is at, but until then, aside from my hibernation holidays, it’s easiest to just keep the head down, and plug away at those games that sit atop the uncompleted list. Sigh. There’s just so many 😥

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Multiplayer Beta

The multiplayer beta for COD BLOPS III kicks off on the Playstation 4 first, as announced earlier in this year’s at E3. Starting Aug 19 and ends Aug 23. It will then migrate to the PC and Xbox One on Aug 26 till Aug 30. Available for all those who pre-ordered the game.


Xbox Backwards Compatibility

Speaking of Call of Duty and Black Ops, Black Ops II is currently the most requested Xbox 360 game to come to the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Red Dead Redemption now sits in 2nd place. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Gears of War 3, Fallout 3, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Mass Effect 3 round off the top ten.

Black Ops II remains on my shelf unopened. If it’s the first game to be made available, it will be the first game I play. Deal? Deal.

Definitive Dead Island?

According to recent info, and following a growing trend, it appears that Dead Island might be the next game to get the remake/re-release treatment over to the current-gen hardware by way of a Definitive Edition. Blegh.

Speaking of islands, tomorrow will be my last day posting live news for the next little while. I’ll be rounding off the week with an article tomorrow, on my current playlist of things getting played. No review, or Achievements either, as I actually haven’t played anything this week. Sad face.

BUT! I’ve been working hard, and I’ve prepared some stuff for next week, to at least keep the posts flowing, while I’m away. Hopefully you’ll like it.

And then shortly after, I’ll return. Hopefully nothing exciting happens while I’m away. I’d hate to miss it.
