If you’ve been patiently waiting all weekend for your first glimpse at this year’s Call of Duty entry, then this evening is for you. Activision has ceremoniously unveiled it’s latest blockbuster entry into the long running franchise, helmed by crowd favourites Treyarch. Thing is: I thought we played Advanced Warfare last year?
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is only 25 days away. 19 May is just around the corner , and the studio is pushing out even more video. It looks fantastic and will make TV viewers and die-hard fans alike excited for the game.
The resolution war is real, people. We all know there's drama about Xbox One vs PS4 when it comes to resolution, but there's really no contest when it comes to PC, right? We can all accept this. However, people are wont to get mighty upset when Xbox tries to pass off PC footage as Xbox footage, and rightfully so.
Sleeping Dogs was a fantastic experience. With a compelling protagonist, a unique world to play in and plenty of Kung Fu fun, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Triad Wars is meant to continue that wonderful experience in a new form, but I'm not convinced.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So having thousands of them, juxtaposed next to one another in a moving order must be like worth…trillions of words. As usual, we’v taken a two-pronged approach to our Mortal Kombat X review: We’ve got both a text option and a video version ready for your perusal. But this video review, is kinda special.
Bloodborne is obscenely cruel at times through its own brand of misdirection. Although it’s a bit generous to call it that – since that would entail that there was some sort of direction to begin with. Part of the allure of From Software’s titles comes from just how obscure and non-sensible some things are. For example, how the lantern you’ve been carrying around is actually making your game harder.
Splatoon is a mess. An inky, colour filled heap of fun type of mess! It’s quickly racing towards launch later next month, and Nintendo is slowly starting to let some more facts about their competitive shooter trickle out from the cracks. Like a good look at the one weapon that caught many eyes in the last trailer.
Steam Greenlight isn’t exactly what it used to be. Where as it used to be a platform for some truly exciting independent games to get some loving, it’s devolved into an endless pit of scary dreams and numerous empty promises. Still, every now and then a gem manages to claw its way through the filth and shine bright. Little Devil Inside is one of those gems.
Sorry Dutch Matrix, you’re out of luck. Lock up your politicians, put your moms to bed and send the kids away folks. Because it is time to paint the screen red. No other game does wanton, brutal and over-the-top violence better than Mortal Kombat. And thanks to some lucky people getting a retail copy of the game early (I’m on my way to CNA right now dangnabbit!), the various fatalities have also gone wild. So here they are. Every single fatality in the game, including a massive spoiler one right at the bottom, here for your perusal.
It was a Samsung fan's wet dream last year when reports regarding the iPhone 6 Plus' tendency to bend in pockets surfaced online. What never used to be a standard test for smartphone superiority quickly turned into the only argument that mattered when choosing between the two brands, and there was very little to defend on the Apple side of life. The Samsung Galaxy S6, ironically, might have gone a bit to far with the plagiarism this time around though.
We've all seen those funny or traumatic movies about military boot camp. It's all about getting whipped into shape and doing whatever it takes to be successful under fire. Esports teams also do boot camp, but it might be different than you imagined. I went to The Hive this weekend to see what it was all about.
Now that Heists have finally arrived for GTA V Online, Rockstar's servers are unsurprisingly busier than ever. That means more pew pew, more vroom vroom and definitely more cheaters ruining the previous two for everyone else. Cheating is prevalent in any online game, and it's the way developers treat it that's far more important. And Rockstar have basically nailed it down to perfection.
Like most of you, I’m also getting tired of talking about Mortal Kombat X. I’ve been dumping hyperbole-coal into the Mortal Kombat X train for what seems like forever now, ever since the game was first announced. I’m still excited for the game, make no mistake, and it’s only a few more days until its out in the wild. Crap, there I go with that crazy hyperbole talk again. Crazy like Kung Lao’s 20% combo attack kids! CRAP, I DID IT AGAIN!
Wait a minute…There are other fighting games on the horizon. Games which don’t rhyme with Shmoral Wombat. One such game, is Tekken 7. It’s a franchise which is now twenty years young, and technically legal to date. Tekken 7 may be an arcade exclusive for now, but you can bet your silly Mishima hairstyle that a console port will be on the way. And hopefully it’ll look as smooth and fluid in the slobber-knocker department as its big brother arcade version.
Microsoft have been fairly consistent with crucial monthly updates for the Xbox One. The March update finally added screenshot functionality, which was easily the most requested feature since launch. April is fairly light on game-changing features, but there’s still enough to get excited about. Like Party Chat changes, for example.
