We previously reported on the fact that MKX will likely be getting micro transactions but we didn't know exactly what they were going to be or whether it was going to be purely cosmetic purchases or the more nefarious pay-to-win option?
One of the best video game memories I have is back in the days of Quake 1 where I played for Damage Clan for a while and went on an amateur tour of South Africa playing in Internet cafes and getting stupidly drunk while pretending to be training.
So there is a rumour on the Internet that Bloodborne is a difficult game of some kind, and while that rumour is 100% true - the game is a monster to complete - it is possible to speed run the game in just 44 minutes using glitches and exploits to pave the way.
The inclusion of Kevin Spacey as a main character in the single player bits of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was a genius decision by Activision and undoubtedly helped appeal to the one or two people who hadn’t heard of Call of Duty before.
