Wow did our Matthew have an awesome time playing Dying Light at Gamescom. Geoff and I hovered over his shoulder, but he was far too busy gleefully playing to notice us. However, the mode that he loved so much will only be available if you pre-order.
When you think of Battlefield, you might only focus on the pew pew pew. But that would be wrong. New gameplay details for the Hotwire multiplayer mode add in the vroom vroom so you can ride shotgun. Did you know that stolen cars go faster?
Destiny is just six days away! I absolutely loved my time in the recent beta - more so when I was playing with other people instead of all on my own. Pairing up with friends to tackle a difficult mission was tough and rewarding, but Bungie says Raids are where things are going to get really intense.
Quake Live holds a special place in my heart. It's the only online game I've ever been banned from to this day, for apparently cheating. I really tried to understand how my a kill/death ratio lower than the temperature in Antarctica meant I was cheating, but I lost that case. Doesn't seem like it matters either, because Quake Live has changed.
I'm still quite skeptical about the Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer, but I've decided that just because I don't like 4-player co-op in my single player games doesn't mean that other people won't enjoy it. Here's how some of you might be having a ton of fun when the game launches.
Yesterday a forum post regarding The Crew caught my attention. The post in question seemed to confirmed that Ubisoft’s racer would have it’s frame rate capped to 30FPS on all platforms, including PC. Now that’s both true and not so true, and Ubisoft have cleared it up for us.
Riots Games have been a but slow in releasing new champions for their extremely popular MOBA, League of Legends. At least, they were earlier this year, with Gnar being unleashed just a few weeks ago. That holiday seems to be over, and already we’ve got our first look at probably the most broken new Champion I’ve ever seen.
Bioware made their "surprise" announcement yesterday about Dragon Age: Inquisition having a co-op multiplayer component. In actual fact, this isn't too much of a surprise, especially considering it sounds rather similar to Mass Effect 3's multiplayer - just without any impact on the single player campaign.
I like to think of 2013/2014 as the teething phase for all our lovely new hardware. Going forward into 2015 and beyond, I want to see games that really push the technology in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, games that make consoles scream and high definition TVs bleed pixels. And I highly suspect that one of those games, will be Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
If you tooled around in the Destiny beta, then there’s no denying that this game is built on the DNA of Halo, with that sensation extending to the Crucilbe and various multiplayer modes. And that’s a good thing. Halo was home to some of the best multiplayer on the planet, with custom matches paving the way for a massively creative Forge to build all kinds of games. While Destiny won’t have that level of PvP at launch, expect to see something done in the near future.
Metal Gear Solid has a, well, weird showing at Gamescom. Hideo Kojima focused on some of the new things you can do with the famous cardboard box, horse poop and extracting helicopters into other helicopters. Sadly, he didn't show off probably the most interesting part of The Phantom Pain.
Riot Games have been teasing their new champion for nearly a month now. The long lost relative to Teemo seems like an interesting new addition to the League of Legends roster. That’s probably because he changes from a cute little critter into a raging monster in no time at all.
BioWare has been teasing their new IP for weeks now, with the reveal taking place during EA’s press conference at Gamescom this morning. It’s an RPG, it’s online and it’s multiplayer. This is Shadow Realms.
Hey, did you read my hands on impression of the upcoming Call of Duty Multiplayer? You should! I managed to gnab some gameplay footage, so you can now see just how bad I am at the game.
I will be perfectly honest. The last Call of Duty I dedicated a fair amount of time to was Black Ops, way back in 2010. I hadn’t really paid any attention to the upcoming entry, at least not until I was whisked off to the multiplayer reveal, shortly after landing in Cologne, Germany. Will this be the entry that shakes up the formula?
