Far Cry is never shy of dabbling in the slightly insane. In the last entry, that was almost entirely encapsulated in Vaas alone, but Far Cry 4 seems to sprinkle this insanity all around its mechanics. That's why instead of a fancy new weapon, Far Cry 4 has weaponized elephants. Oh, hey PETA!
Gone are the days where Resident Evil actually felt like a horror. Most of the franchise’s core titles have leaned more on the action side of things, and I’d even go as far as calling Resident Evil 6 a straight up third-person shooter. Revelations, previously only a 3DS exclusive, went back to basics. People really loved it, which is why Revelations 2 looks no different.
With everyone going absolutely bonkers over the launch of Destiny, it’s easy to forget that there are actually still a ton of games coming out over the next few weeks. Some are further than others, but most of them are less than a month away. Take Forza Horizon 2 for example. It’s looking like one of the most stunning games to launch on the Xbox One yet, and it’s out in really, really soon.
Destiny kicked off what is bound to be a very busy, and expensive, few weeks. After a boring and quiet Winter it’s now time for literally all the games to come out, mostly starting in the first week of October. One game coming out during that week is Alien: Isolation, and it doesn’t look like you’ll need too much PC power to ruin sleeping with the lights off for the near future.
I am chomping at the bit to get my hands on Shadow of Mordor. It was my least anticipated title at the beginning of the year, and has since become one of the games I'm most excited for. It's coming to PS4 and Xbox One at the end of this month, but things have changed for PC and last-generation consoles.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Heroes in a half-shell! Turtle power! I don’t care what demographic you hail from, you’re never too old for some good ol’ fashioned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action. Which usually involves someone losing an eye. But I digress. There’s a new TMNT film, that is kinda whelming at best. But there also happen to be two seasons of a superb new cartoon around that stars the iconic Turtles. And they’re getting a brand new game.
Saints Row is known for being insanely outrageous. You only have to look at how different Saints Row IV is from the series' gangster roots. It's been for the better, but that doesn't mean it can't get crazier.
Yesterday a forum post regarding The Crew caught my attention. The post in question seemed to confirmed that Ubisoft’s racer would have it’s frame rate capped to 30FPS on all platforms, including PC. Now that’s both true and not so true, and Ubisoft have cleared it up for us.
Telkom's DGL already has some awesome sponsors. The Dota league winners are getting some awesome goodies, as are players across a variety of games. Now Xbox South Africa is jumping into the Call of Duty sponsorship, and it might just make you kick yourself for not getting involved sooner.
The Tomb Raider reboot from last year was a pretty solid game and earlier this year we found out that a sequel was in the works. What we didn’t know was that Rise of the Tomb Raider is in fact a Xbox exclusive.
