Chicago is never safe in Watch Dog’s online modes

Watch Dogs may only be a few weeks away, but the game is still keeping a few secrets under wraps. One such section where details are few and far between, is in the multiplayer department.

It’s alive, it’s alive! There’s been sparse news on Ubisoft’s free to play shooter in recent months, with some fearing that Ghost Recon Online was deader than disco. Turns out the game has been given a new lease of life, and will be known as Ghost Recon Phantoms.

Review: Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

Garden Warfare was a tough one for me. I had never played any of the other games in the series, and this one is totally different gameplay wise from the others in the series. It also brought up the question of reviewing a game that is almost solely an online experience, and whether or not day one server problems should affect the score. Luckily for Popcap, the newest entry into the popular franchise is a solid experience with lots of fun to be had.

You’ll need to wait for your GTA Online hush cash

There’s nothing in life that can’t be solved by throwing more money at it. And that’s why Waterworld won the Oscar for Bestest Movie Ever Shut Up You Guys. GTA Online has had a troubled start so far, and while Rockstar is working on a solution, it’s offering some money to tide the masses over with, in the form of a virtual stimulus package.
