No, we’re not discussing Titanfall. For a while now, I think console games, or more specifically, the last generation of consoles, have been holding videogames (yes, even PC ones!) back. It’s one reason why the uptake of this newest generation of machines has been unprecedented, with a combined total of nearly 10 million PlayStation 4’s and Xbox Ones in homes already.
Dark Souls II is almost upon us. Are you ready to lose all hope, to descend into the depths of despair and maybe even throw your toys and rage quit on a daily basis? I'm not quite sure why we do this to ourselves, but we can't wait to do it again. Now, we have a date for when the PC master race can join in the fun.
One genre that has seen a dip over the last decade, has to be the strategy game. Sure, there’s a few great examples out on shelves now, but they certainly don’t dominate sales like they used to. One of the best such games back then was Homeworld, a cosmic real-time battle amongst the stars. Gearbox has been hard at work remastering the two games. And they sound like old-school ideas with new school visuals.
You know how I confirmed for you yesterday that we will be seeing DLCs and a Season Pass for Titanfall? Well, now we know how much it will cost and how much of a savings the Season Pass will give you compared to buying each DLC as it comes. There's even a way to save more money.
Next week Friday, those of you who aren’t preparing to die will be getting ready for Titanfall. The mech-battling, wall-running, jet-packing shooter from Respawn is out on Friday for those of who don’t live in North America, promising to not just be Call of Duty with mechs. Which is what it looks a heck of a lot like.
Did you think that Batman had a tough night in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City? Well wait until you get a load of this game where the dark knight joins forces with his greatest ally: His wheels.
It’s offensive. It’s crude. It pushes the boundaries of taste and is more offensive than finding presidential used condoms outside of an abortion clinic. And that’s just the regular South Park cartoon which has been on TV since the 1990s. The game? It’s all that, but amplified to a new degree of vicious and intelligent comedy. And dammit, it’s given me the best laugh in ages.
Titanfall is a beautiful game. There’s no way around that fact, as the core focus on multiplayer action has resulted in a game engine that runs fast, smooth and looks good. Naturally, top of the line PC’s will crank out the best visuals. But how about more modest computers? How will the game run on that hardware.
Game developer Suda 51 has earned somewhat of a cult following with action-packed games carrying his unique sense of humor. Titles like Lollipop Chainsaw, Shadows of the Damned, No More Heroes, and Killer7 have come to define his style. It was last year’s Killer is Dead, though, that highlighted some of the conflicts between Eastern and Western culture, particularly regarding sexuality. On May 9th, PC creeps gamers will also be able to try their hand at the controversial “Gigolo Mode” with the release of Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition, Deep Silver says in a press release.
Is the buzz getting to you? Have you been itching to see what all the fuss around The Witcher is all about? Got a PC with Steam loaded up? Then this news is for you: The Witcher Enhanced Edition and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings are free to play on Steam until Sunday at 9PM GMT.
I’m not normally a fan of first person shooters, especially modern military Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta style FPS’s. Titanfall is different: it has giant fighting robots. But is that it? Is it just Call of Duty with robots?
A rather odd Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare trailer shows off the “chum gun” a “porpoise built” launcher of delicious chum. I would like to formally apologise for that awful pun.
Yes, that’s right! You can go here and register your interest for the TitanFall beta.
Oh yeah, I give the best head shots! Hey, get your mind out of the gutter - I'm talking about my epic skills at L4D2! Tonight, you get to play with us on PS4 or PC. Remember it's all for good fun.
