Titanfall 2 gets its best free DLC and its worst microtransactions

This past week, Titanfall 2 dropped its latest free content update in the form of ‘Frontier Shield,’ adding two new maps, camos, balance changes, and best of all, the co-op gametype, Frontier Defense. The first new map is ‘Township’, an urban style arena for the ‘Live Fire’ gametype. I had my doubts about this map, due to all the potential camping spots, but all reports say that it’s one of the be...[Read More]

There’s something horrific hiding in Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is a child friendly game, or at least it presents itself that way. However, lurking beneath the surface is a tale so horrific it boggles the mind. Part of what makes Splatoon 2 a great title – as you can read in our review – is the world building in Inkopolis, where you can visit stores and kit yourself out with new weapons, fancy clothes and purchase some pure unadulterated...[Read More]

Destiny 2’s Beta analysis – The good, the bad, and the beautiful

There wasn’t much to do in Destiny 2’s console beta, but there’s plenty to talk about. From PVE to PVP, let’s start with the good. The opening mission was one of the best ever As Charlie said in his initial impressions, the opening mission, ‘Homecoming,’ quickly set up Destiny 2’s story. The Cabal are invading, we meet Gaul, and spoiler alert, we lose. Destiny 2’s plot is looking to be stron...[Read More]

We taste tested 6 disgusting video game recipes

After the last two times I ate fictional foods online, I swore I would stop punishing my body with TV trash. And I meant it. Which is exactly why I moved on to video games. Like a trained warrior, I summoned the most insane concoctions from video games that I could think of. Battle ready, I rolled up my sleeves, opened my beak, and conquered these six video game food monsters. Join me and see if I...[Read More]

The Wolf Among Us: Season 2 announced

A second season of The Wolf Among Us is coming in 2018, Telltale Games announced overnight in their Summer Update 2017 press conference. Little detail was given regarding the exact storyline of the follow up to their 2014 smash hit, but Telltale showed a little teaser trailer and confirmed stars Erin Yvette and Adam Harrington will return as Snow White and Bigby Wolf respectively. Here’s the...[Read More]

Destiny 2’s beta should appeal to new fans

I’ll be the first to admit that the original Destiny left me with a resounding meh. Personally, I found the game to fall flat in terms of narrative and gameplay, but this was back in the early days of release. To say the least I was hesitant going into the Destiny 2 early access beta – which is now live on PlayStation 4 and will be live on Xbox One tomorrow ahead of the open console be...[Read More]

5 times video game cartoons gave their source material the middle finger

When it comes to adapting a video game into a full TV show or movie, certain creative liberties are expected. After all, animation studios are taking a quick, simple, self-contained premise (chomping yellow circle-man eats pills, runs from ghosts, eats the fruit, swallows ghost, repeat) and attempting to turn it into a complete 11 minute, 22 minute, or hell, even 90 minute cartoon. Not an easy tas...[Read More]

Take a look at Doomfist’s alternate skins

Although Doomfist is still in the PTR, that doesn’t mean he can’t get down with some new looks. The newest Overwatch cast member got his new outfits today, and they’re pretty damn cool. I’m definitely all about that painted look. Hopefully it’s not long until he makes it into the full game! Watch over Charlie on Twitter @clbraith and don’t forget to follow @load_scree...[Read More]

Video: We took Doomfist for a spin

It’s pretty exciting stuff to see another villain enter the Overwatch cast, especially a melee focused one. So I thought we’d try Doomfist out on the PTR, something which proved difficult in a conventional game, as everyone was pouncing on him the second it loaded in. I got round this by playing a no limits game, which means there’s an incredible amount of Doomfist for you to see...[Read More]

Doomfist arrives on Overwatch PTR

After a rumour mill that has been churning since before Overwatch actually released, the long awaited villain Doomfist has joined the cast of playable characters. Earlier in the week a snippet of lore was releases detailing Doomfist being broken out of jail by Talon and Reaper, which seemed to signal a possible month long run down of info before a release, but here we are, a few days later and you...[Read More]

That’s You first impressions: PlayStation’s PlayLink makes party games easy

That’s You is the first title to show off PlayStation’s new PlayLink feature, allowing players to game together using smart phone apps along with their PS4. At a media session on Monday I was fortunate to play a couple rounds and gauge how it all works. As a gameThat’s You and the PlayLink mechanics will be familiar to those who’ve played Jackbox collections, albeit with hi...[Read More]
