Despite its cute, colourful exterior, Splatoon might just be one of the more hardcore games Nintendo has decided to bet on. The online shooter shares most of its DNA with traditional multiplayer tropes, including various different weapons and a bunch of customisable items. We’ve only seen a handful of them to date, but that changed with a screenshot explosion last night.
Destiny can be played on your own. But like so many games lately, it is an experience best played with others. If you don't have a group of friends to play with on a regular basis, the game will match you with others. However, even the studio knows that matchmaking isn't ideal.
Bad cops, bad cops, Battlefield Hardline cops are on the take! But what do you expect for the money they make? Whether in a car or on a horse, we don't mind using excessive force! Bad cops, bad cops, Bad cops, bad cops..
It feels like an eternity since EA and DICE revealed that they were working on a brand new Star Wars: Battlefront title. Considering this is probably the most requested sequel from Star Wars fans everywhere, the wait has been excruciating to say the least. But that's all coming to an end in less than a month!
Evolve has a distinct and unique approach to online multiplayer, and it's the reason the title stood out every time I got my hands on it. I think everyone knew that its greatest strength would also be its biggest barrier to entry, but I never expected it to be this bad. Evolve has been fighting an uphill battle on PC especially, and it's one that's not being turned around either.
Mortal Kombat X keeps getting better and better everytime NetherRealm Studios decides to show it off. To cap off last week Ed Boon and Co. cushioned a last-gen delay with the reveal of Jason Voorhees as a guest fighter. Problem is, it might not be the only bad news for the soon to launch title.
Bloodborne is coming and may just being the PS4 exclusive that everyone was hoping for. Now Sony has revealed some new screens for the gory death-fest, as well as some added information about co-op, PvP and PS+ requirements.
Destiny is pretty much several games in one package. On the one hand, you’ve got the pseudo-RPG mechanics intertwined with the shoot ‘em up nature of this beast. On the other hand, you’ve got an arena shooter in the Crucible, a mode that is home to some deadly-skilled players. And on the third hand derived from a terrible mutation, you’ve got the waiting game, as Destiny will be changing once again with the latest playlist update.
The Order: 1886, according to YouTubers who’ve uploaded the game to the internet, will last you about 5 hours; and that’s including the game’s maligned interactive cut-scenes. For many, that’s just not good enough; when throwing down $60 (or R799), people expect a game to last them a good few hours more than that. The thing is, those YouTubers have intentionally blitzed through the entire game for as short a run as possible.
Mass Effect 3 had some excellent multiplayer. It was fun and cooperative, and had some excellent tie in with the game. The new Mass Effect (that won't be called Mass Effect 4 but we'll keep calling that until we get a new name to work with) will also have multiplayer and Bioware is looking for the right leader for it.
I wouldn’t hold it against you if you didn’t recall Dreadnought. The space combat shooter, which features absolutely massive starships, was announced at E3 last year by Yager, and hasn’t made too much noise since then. The game is progressing nicely, and is still set for launch during the middle of this year. And if you had no idea what it was then, you certainly should be paying attention now.
I’ve always wanted to make a change in the world. Not for a cleaner environment, honest politics or any of that ineffectual nonsense, but in games. By now, anyone with a console has taken part in a beta of some sort. Whether it be the latest one for Battlefield Hardline, Evolve or Hearthstone, those betas are valuable tools for helping to shape the final game. And if you took part in the Halo 5: Guardians beta, then you did make a change. Maaaaaaaaaaan.
The dawn of the next-generation of consoles has brought about as much controversy as it has pleasure. If it's not something to do with the framerate, it's about the resolution, of which console the game was made for primarily and all the stuff that people didn't really care about not too long ago. One of the more confusing debates sits around console and PC parity, and it's one Evolve isn't content on having.
Over on Reddit, people are debating the merits of Evolve's pricing system. Rather than having players buy a full price game, plus DLC, they are questioning why it wasn't made as a free-to-play experience. Does this apply to all multiplayer games?
I never really wanted to own a Wii U up until last year. It’s virtually impossible to ignore how strong Nintendo’s line-up was, and after Nintendo Direct last night it’s hard to imagine that they’re going to slow down soon. There are already countless reasons to finally pick up a Wii U, but my ultimate seller has to be Splatoon. And now it has a release date.
