We’re entering that time of year where all the biggest and blockbusteriest games are on their way. While money doesn’t always guarantee success, it certainly does help and you’ll most likely be hard-pressed to find a game that actually gets downright slammed by all the critics. That doesn’t mean that 2014 hasn’t had some bad games so far. Hell, it’s had some of the very worst games ever released actually. Here’s a look at the games that smelt like Batman Forever.
It’s become a bit of a joke how short Call of Duty’s single player campaigns have become. Sledgehmammer Games’ Glen Schofield said that this year’s one would be “coming in longer than the last few" . Apparently, it’s longer by mere minutes. According to somebody who’s finished the game, it clocks in at just 5 hours.
I bet you thought that the Remastered Edition of The Last of us was the very last time the game would be released. Well you’d be wrong. It’s coming to the PlayStation 3 again, as a Game of the Year Edition.
What’s your favourite GTA game? I’m not the series’ biggest fan, but if I had to pick one, it’d probably be Vice City. something about the setting, and the cheesy 80’s music just resonates with me. For most though, if it’s not the newest GTA V, it’s likely GTA San Andreas. And it looks like it’s coming back.
I love random days like Halloween. It usually means large amounts of unnecessary candy, in-game themed community events, and sometimes, games for really cheap. PlayStation are throwing together some rather delicious specials to welcome in the scary event, all taking place over the next two weeks.
So Just Dance 2015 has released their launch trailer and the game hits shelves and online stores in 2 days.
Dedicated servers are an important element in the longevity of any multiplayer game. The last Call of Duty, Ghosts, had a hybrid server system using both listen and dedicated servers. It didn’t work very well – and is at least one of the reasons COD Ghosts’ userbase has dwindled. Could Advanced Warfare make up for those sins? Maybe.
One of the most underrated, and yet important, video game design factors is the standard user interface that you have no choice but to use.
It's now more rare for a game to launch without a Season Pass than with one. Sometimes the post launch content on offer justifies the extra little cash injection, as is the case with Far Cry 4. You're getting single-player, co-op and multiplayer content, as well as a little trip into a Yeti's den. I highly doubt he'll be as cuddly as I hope.
Last week, we gave away a copy of Alien Isolation – but just one scary game is not enough, so we’re giving away another. Here’s your chance to win a copy of The Evil Within the new game from the demented mind that brought you Resident Evil.
I have no idea why publishers are doing this more and more recently, but launch trailers for games are coming in way before games are set for launch. The latest game to see a launch trailer half a month before its release is Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
We’re in a new current-gen. This is the time of the year that I’m officially declaring new-gen and next-gen to be obsolete words, after the adoption of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We’re in a generation of gaming that is promising more power, more social interactions and less shiny horse armour DLC. But to get there, some of us had to let go of the past. How easy was it for you?
HEY KIDS! This year, December isn’t the barren wasteland of non-gaming releases thanks to a veritable glut of October and November launches. There are some great games coming out. Some big, some small and some in between like my gut after the traditional feast of Sandy Claws. But if there’s one game that has my blood on fire, it has to be the new Guilty Gear game. That’s right my lovelies, the Yuletide season is about to get messy with off the wall combos and special moves when the latest GG game arrives.
