Attention Gears fans, The Coalition is proud to announce that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has officially gone gold! And to celebrate, the studio has shared a behind-the-scenes look the development of the game, digital pre-order and pre-download details, as well as the fully recreated opening cinematic to help fans get ready for the game’s release on Aug. 25.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is now available for pre-order and pre-download. Fans who can’t wait to jump into the action on Aug. 25 can visit the Xbox Store to pre-order and pre-download the Standard and Deluxe Editions of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, so that it’s ready to go when the game releases. Those who pre-order will also receive exclusive bonus skins and characters including:

Standard Edition ($39.99 USD) – The landmark original Gears of War returns, offering a full digital game download, plus pre-order bonus items including the Adam Fenix and Civilian Anya multiplayer skins and Animated Imulsion Weapon Skin for use in multiplayer matches.
Deluxe Edition ($59.99 USD) – The ultimate Gears experience. On top of the Standard Edition items, the Deluxe Edition also includes the Deluxe Weapon Skin Pack featuring 10 different Animated Weapon Skins and 36 standard Weapon Skins, as well as the Civilian Marcus Fenix and Aaron Griffin multiplayer characters.

The Deluxe Edition will be digital only but i hope Microsoft and the Coalition will announced if your buying the disc version like me we can still get the deluxe content for $20 on the Xbox Live Marketplace, i hope they do since it’s not fair for the people who aren’t going digital to be excluded from getting the extra content without buying both versions.

Gears of War Developer gets a new Studio Name

Posted by OujaStrike on June 3, 2015

Today Studio Head of Black Tusk Studios Rod Fergusson has announced that Black Tusk Studios has changed it’s studio name to The Coalition. Full info below

Introducing The Coalition – A Message from Rod Fergusson

Hi everyone – I’m Rod Fergusson, former studio head of Black Tusk Studios.

It’s not what you think.

Beginning today, the Vancouver-based Xbox team working on the Gears of War franchise will be known as The Coalition. What’s in a name? In short, The Coalition speaks to who we are as a team, and what it is we’re working on.

A coalition is a team of diverse individuals working together for a common purpose, a concept that we feel describes our studio quite well.

Fans will also recognize the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) from Gears of War lore.

When people hear 343 Industries, they associate it with Halo; when they hear Turn 10 Studios, they know that’s who makes Forza. Moving forward, when you hear The Coalition, we want you to think of Gears of War.

To see our new logo in motion, and to learn more about The Coalition, watch the special edition Rodcast above.

Speaking of Gears of War, we’re getting close to E3, where we will share more on what’s next for Gears of War. Specifically, Gears fans should be sure to tune in to Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3, on Monday June 15 at 4PM Pacific to see what we’re working on.

I think this makes total sense as the COG from Gears of War stands for the Coalition of Ordered Governments.

Rumor Original Gears of War Remaster coming? sure looks like it.

Posted by OujaStrike on April 25, 2015

Could a Remaster of the Original Gears of War to the Xbox One be coming? from a recent report it sure looks like it.

A article on Friday from Polygon suggest that a Remaster Gears of War 1 is coming soon to Xbox One

The re-release of Gears of War for Xbox One will include updated visuals and reworked cutscenes, courtesy of animation studio Plastic Wax, according to a source. Stills of Gears of War‘s remade opening cinematic were shown to Polygon, offering a new look at the Locust invasion with updated visuals.

Update: According to another source, Brink and Dirty Bomb developer Splash Damage is working on the Xbox One remaster of Gears of War. The U.K.-based studio has several job listings that say it’s working on a “very well known and highly popular AAA title with next gen technology.” We’ve reached out to Splash Damage for comment.

Update 2: We’ve seen some multiplayer screenshots of the Gears of War remaster, and it appears that the Xbox One game features improved lighting and increased texture quality. We’re told that the multiplayer runs at 60 frames per second.

Kotaku has obtain an image to a Gears 1 Remaster screenshot and some info on the current modes playable.

Gears 1

Today, a number of people across the country obtained access to a test build for “Gears of War” on the Xbox One, as shown in the screenshot above. Although we suspected it might be part of an as-of-yet-unannounced Gears collection including a number of games in the series, this may in fact just be a remaster of the first Gears of War game, if a new Polygon report is accurate.

UPDATE (9:10pm): It’s real. Three different people playing tonight’s test build tell us that it’s just the first Gears of War. This test build is multiplayer-only, featuring the following modes: Team Deathmatch; King of the Hill; 1 Life 1V1 Shotgun TDM; 1v1 Sudden Death Gnashers Only; 4v4 TDM Single Round; and 4v4 KOTH Single Round.

My Thoughts on the Rumors

This is an exciting time to be a Gears fan but i hope it’s just Gears 1 and not a whole collection of Gears 1-J, we don’t need another mess that Halo The Master Chief Collection had when it launched late last year.

I’m Finally Back!

Posted by OujaStrike on April 22, 2015

It’s seems this is my first Blog post in Months.

My HP Computer has been having some issues like a error code called BIOHD-8, i think i haven’t been able to use my PC in like over 30+ days.

My PC is right next to the main phone and that was down for a while just got it fix last week so that may of been the cause of my PC Monitor going black when i try to boot the PC.

Don’t know if it will go out again but if it does i’m wasting no time and will get my Hard drive check to see what the issue is.

Thanks Marty M

ANNOUNCING EA ACCESS FOR XBOX ONE: THE BEST WAY TO PLAY EA’S GAMES

Today we’re revealing a new way for gamers to play more EA games. This is something we’ve never done before and we’re excited to share it with you.

We have partnered with Microsoft to deliver EA Access, an all-new monthly (or annual) membership for gamers exclusively on Xbox One that starts at just $4.99 a month. The service is being rolled out in beta to a limited number of players today, but it will launch for everyone on Xbox One soon. At EA, we are always looking for new ways to make it easier for gamers to play more EA games across all platforms, and we are excited about what EA Access will offer to players on Xbox One.

EA Access membership unlocks The Vault, a collection of EA’s biggest games on Xbox One ready for you to download and play. During the beta, gamers will have unlimited access to four great EA games: FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4™, with more titles being added soon. That’s over $100 worth of games for $4.99 a month. You can play these EA favorites as much as you want with the click of a button.

EA Access is a totally new way for you to play more of the games you love, for less. Here’s a rundown of the additional benefits EA Access members will get:

Awesome Value– Besides the great games in The Vault, EA Access members will save 10% on purchases of EA digital content for Xbox One offered through the Xbox Games Store. From full digital-download titles like the upcoming Dragon Age™ Inquisition or NHL®15, to additional membership services such as Battlefield 4 Premium or even FIFA Ultimate Team points, it’s all 10% off for members.*
Play First – Membership in EA Access lets you experience trials of new EA games up to five days before the release date.* It starts with Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA LIVE 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition, but more are on the way. If you decide to buy the game, your progress will carry over so you can pick up right where you left off.

EA Access

You can join EA Access for just $4.99 per month, or you can purchase an annual membership for $29.99 per year on Xbox LIVE®.

Soon, fans of GameStop will be able to purchase their EA Access membership in local retail stores. GameStop and Amazon will also carry EA Access memberships for Xbox One gamers across Europe, as well as EB Games in Canada.

Power Rangers Reboot Movie News

Posted by OujaStrike on July 15, 2014

MMPR

Huge news broke by the Hollywood Reporter that confirmed 2 Writers and a exec producer for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Movie Reboot.

Here is the full press release by the Hollywood Reporter

The Power Rangers have found their creative team.

The upcoming movie being developed by Lionsgate and rights holder Saban Brands will be scripted by X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz.

Additionally, Roberto Orci, one of the screenwriters behind the Transformers and Star Trek movies, is coming on board as an exec producer.

Orci who recently split with screenwriting partner Alex Kurtzman, has formed a new venture, Sneaky Shark.

Orci will develop the movie’s story along with Miller and Stentz, with the latter two handling screenwriting duties.

Power Rangers was a ’90s TV series and global marketing franchise, initially called The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, that used footage from a Japanese children’s show. It first aired on Fox Kids then in the 2000s on Disney-owned channels. A movie also hit theaters in 1995.

The new movie promises to completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique superpowers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.
Haim Saban, who created the franchise, will produce Power Rangers with Saban Brands’ head of development and production Brian Casentini. Also producing is Allison Shearmur, who oversaw The Hunger Games when she was Lionsgate’s president of production and recently produced Disney’s Cinderella.

In addition to First Class, Miller and Stentz have screenwriting credit on Marvel’s Thor and are working on a Terminator TV series. They worked with Orci on Fringe, the cult TV show he created with Kurtzman.
In addition to three Transformers movies and two Trek films, Orci’s writing credits include Mission: Impossible III, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens, among several others.

Orci is repped by CAA, Miller and Stentz by WME and Principato Young Entertainment.
Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig and executive vp production and development Jim Miller are overseeing Rangers.

I never really heard of Ashley, Zack and Roberto but those are some successful movies that they each worked on and it’s good to see that Lionsgate and Saban Brands wants this film to be very successful and as a die-hard Power Ranger fan i’m excited for whats to come in the coming months.

Any other info that gets release i’ll keep everyone updated.
