It was very, very hard to put down Nidhogg to write this review. What do you know about Nidhogg? The people reading this versed in Norse mythology may think Nidhogg is a dragon that gnaws on the roots of the Earth tree, Yggdrasill. Although that is relevant and true, Nidhogg in this context, is a 2D fencing game in which two people battle to reach their side of a level where they then get eaten by Nidhogg.
Titanfall’s confirmed 12 player, 6-v-6 player has caused a bit of controversy. Some are disappointed, believing that a “next generation” game shouldn’t have such a low player count. Others believe it’s being held back by consoles, which is why it’s only a 12 player game. Respawn says this is nonsense, and that it was a design decision for maximum funsies.
The recent expansion to XCOM, XCOM:Enemy within, has received a balancing update to the multiplayer component of the game. The update changes the pricing of units, making many cheaper and some more overpowered units more expensive to compensate. The full table of changes can be found below.
You know what the best thing is about new gaming technology hardware? New games and ideas being floated around. Or at least a risk being taken here and there. Gaming is slowly creating a divide between pure single-player experiences and multiplayer-only gameplay, and that’s something that you’ll see more of later this year in Evolve.
PlayStation Plus subscribers have been getting hooked up recently, with several high-profile games currently available for free download in the EU region – including DmC: Devil May Cry and Borderlands 2 for the PS3.
If you have a PlayStation 4, though, there’s another perk for this coming weekend. From December 28-31, the multiplayer component for Killzone: Shadow Fall will be free to play for all PS4 owners – essentially the best part of the game. Preloading is available immediately for those who want to get started the minute it unlocks, so get ready to close out the year with some sci-fi multiplayer mayhem.
As far as single-player games go, Assassin’s Creed is one of those titles that have a very strong presence in that domain. Sure, it has multiplayer, but have you ever heard someone explain that they were buying one of those games solely for that? In future games however, the single and multiplayer worlds could merge together.
I love playing LoL, mostly because there's no pause option. Don't start a game if you can't commit to the time it's going to take to complete it. Sure, sometimes life happens, but most of the time people pause for no good reason. So, what excuses would you deem acceptable?
Man, my whole day so far has been about resolutions. Aaaaaanyway, even though I’ll be putting my preorder down for the Xbox One in a few weeks, I have to admit that the PS4 has some damn good-lookin’ games. Like Killzone Shadow Fall, which looks so fantastic in person, that a streaming service can’t do it any proper justice.
Battlefield 4 is out in the US today, and the rest of the world on Friday – and if you plan on playing multiplayer (and you probably do), then you best download the game’s day one patch.
If there’s one thing that you can rely on in a Call of Duty game, it;s zombies. That’s if Treyarch is developing the game that is. This year, Infinity Ward steps up to the plate for Call of Duty: Ghosts, and it looks like they’re bringing an alien infestation with them as well.
A little while back I was given the honour of spending some quality time with the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer; giving the new game modes a try as well as trying out some of the new kill streaks.
One of the most defining differences between Call of Duty and Battlefield is simply the size of the respective maps. Call of Duty has always had tighter maps which, while not small, have never really competed with the size of some of the Battlefield maps.
A YouTube user has uploaded what he is claiming to be early beta footage of Assassin’s Creed 4 multiplayer gameplay.
Batman: Arkham Origins has a new developer in charge of the franchise, in the form of Warner Bros Montreal. With that change, comes new ideas for the game. Such as a multiplayer component that is being created by Splash Damage in tandem with the game. Will it be a cheap, quick experience though?
I think that I can say with the utmost confidence, that interest in the Battlefield 4 single-player experience is about on par with that of Geoff’s curiosity to homeopathic medicine. As in none. Multiplayer is where most of y’all will be headed. Now take a deeper look at that action.
