Just when you thought the Flappy Bird phenomena was dead. Thanks to Project Spark, creators can create and remix games and play them on Xbox One and Windows 8. Several users have recreated the successful Flappy Bird mobile game and its just as frustrating. Project Spark is going to be a great platform for creatives to get games out there and I can’t wait to show off some more of the gems in it.
Titanfall is just a week away, and Respawn dropped a brand new Titanfall trailer to get you hype for madness. Life is better with a titan and this trailer definitely proves it. The trailer has some Call of Duty characteristics to it. The old school music and live action CGI combo is straight out of the Call of Duty playbook. Still a great trailer!
Horde mode definitely changed the game. I remember the countless hours spent coming up with the best strategies to handling every map and yelling at team mates to know there role! It seemed like ever since, we’ve seen some carbon copy bite offs of Horde thrown together into every new game. Its refreshing to see Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare take horde mode and flip it upside down.
The coins you earn from all the game modes can be used to purchase sticker packs which can unlock consumable plants. You can fortify your garden with these plants to help defend your precious garden. Every few rounds you will get a random boss wave and as you can see in the video, it can get messy.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare isn’t a hard game to jump into. In fact the learning curve isn’t steep at all. Jumping into the game you first instinct may to be save your coins for mega stupid card packs, which isn’t a bad idea but its not the best idea.
You should spend your coins mostly on consumable packs as much as you can at earlier levels. This packs give you plants and zombies to use in Garden Ops and Gardens & Graveyards. These two modes can net you lots of coins with little card investment. Also play around with all the classes. Use the Welcome Mat playlist and level up all the classes to at least level 3. At level 3 you’ll have all the abilities unlocked and would have a pretty good idea of which class would be your bread and butter.
What seemed like a sneak diss to the Call of Duty series, Plants vs Zombies – Garden
Warfare was nowhere near my radar. This morning out of impulse I made the greatest decision I’ve made since selling my Playstation 4. Today I download Plants vs Zombies – Garden Warfare and its the must fun I’ve had in awhile. The game is only $39.99 and a multiplayer only game. Its a 3rd person class based shooter thats challenging and requires lots of teamwork to really succeed. In the video below I show off the soldier classes but when I get on the plant side, I really understood the dynamics of the game. Being near a Sunflower at all times is a good idea to get healed up and knowing when to revive.
The long awaited Twitch update will make fall just in time for Titanfall. The Xbox One Twitch app was built from the ground by Twitch unlike the PS4. The app will have far less restrictions compared to the PS4 version. The update will come along with several other multiplayer focused updates heading to the Xbox One like better Parties.

New DC Animation alert! DC Comics is usually on point when it comes down to its animated features, so when I heard a new movie was dropping based off of the New 52 I couldn’t wait. Now that I’ve seen it a few times I would love to hear what you guys think about it. Let us know in the comments.
Wave two of the Marvel Avengers movie franchise has begun, as Thor: The Dark World kicked things of with a furious bang. Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant Man and eventually, The Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron are on deck. That hasn’t stopped Marvel from looking ahead to Wave 3, and with that, Jon Hamm of Mad Men fame has been announced for the lead role as Doctor Strange in a stand alone Doctor Strange movie. With Robert Downey Jr’s contract set to expire soon, Hamm and Doc Strange are looked at as possible new face as leader of the Avengers. There were rumors of interest in Johnny Depp for the role, but it looks like Hamm is their guy. After the break, you can check out a video where my brother Eric and I discuss the role and whether or not it should have gone to Hamm, Depp or someone else over some LEGO Marvel Superheroes gameplay. What do you think?
The release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is fast approaching, and with Activision’s contract with Marvel coming to an end, this could be the last time we see a Spider-Man game made by Beenox Studios. Beenox has really changed the gaming world for Spider-Man, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game looks like it will be another great release for the studio. It looks like there will be at least two villains in this one, with the Jamie Foxx inspired Electro serving as one, and the narrator of the trailer you will find after the break, Kraven the Hunter, as the other.
While there is still no official release date, you can look for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in stores this spring across all formats, including the Xbox One and Playstation 4. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is in theaters May 2nd, 2014.
The Money Team is in the building. Trying something new for the 2014. Check out my new countdown show, showing off the NPD sales results of the month. I’ll have some special guests from time to time but for now check it out and let me know what you think.
This morning Grand Theft Auto Online went down for maintenance. During this time, Rockstar went through and removed all the counterfeit and hacked money from the games economy. Rockstar is taking a real active approach on tackling hackers and balancing out the economy. If I was Rockstar, I would start a Snitches get Guns campaign. If you report players exploiting the game, you can get an limited edition weapon in exchange for your snitch. Just a thought.
Microsoft has unveiled their first ever Limited Edition controller for the Xbox One, and it is in support of the Xbox exclusive debut from Respawn Entertainment: Titalfall. I don’t even know if I am going to like the game yet, but that is one pretty controller, so I have a feeling I will be purchasing it. It must be that AnalogHype color combo! The controller will launch on March 11th, 2014 along with the game, so if you’re in need of another controller or bored with the plane old black one, it’s less than two months away. More details after the break.
Here at Analoghype we are VERY competitive with each other especially when it comes to the video games. In fact nobody competes more than Adrian P.(DJKrome) and myself Keem J.(Stretch 32). The latest game that we’ve “competed” in was Killer Instinct for the Xbox One.
Now I’ve been playing this game for a while so I have a pretty good understanding of the controls while Adrian hasn’t really put in that much time on the sticks. This was our first match and it’s more like a training session for him so I decided to teach him a few things with my fists.
If you’d like to see more video of me playing Killer Instinct against random opponents, feel free to check out my youtube channel DemoKingsHD. Send me an invite and we can go a few rounds.
