Trees will mess you up in first person Battlegrounds servers

FPP servers are now available in Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds for NA, EU and AS regions. The update allows players to battle it out only in first-person mode, which makes the already sweat inducing game that much more terrifying. I decided to jump into a solo round and try my hand at the new mode, and luckily for me, my first FPP round would also be in the rain, making it that much more te...[Read More]

Anime video games that got the best, worst, and strangest treatment

In an oversaturated game market, talking about things that suck is easy. You stick the terrible game in your console (or load up your rom and pretend what you’re doing is totally legal) spout some choice words at it, and let it die in the Abyss of Forgotten Games. But what if the game in question is from a super niche interest…like let’s say anime video games. You’re a serious otaku, so you’ll try...[Read More]

One does not simply respect consumers: Shadow of War will have paid content

Sons of PC! Of PlayStation! My brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of gamers fails, when we forsake our friends and buy shitty additional content, but it is not this day. An hour of lootboxes and shattered wallets, when the age of common sense comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold...[Read More]

A look at the most shameless video game clones

The video game market is filled with niche genres. From fighting games to first-person shooters, RPGs to puzzle games, all of us have our favorite go-to. And within every genre of game, there’s a huge sub-collection of games that satisfy our player preference- games that follow a set of rules or decorum that help it feel familiar, like playing Tetris Attack and moving on to Puzzle Fighter. Or play...[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]

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]

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]

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy shows how far games have come

Like a lot of 90s children I’ve been playing Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy this weekend. It’s been a mostly fun – sometimes rage vomit worthy – nostalgia trip. That being said, I can’t help but notice the remake highlights just how far games have come in the 20 years since Crash Bandicoot debuted. A lot of people have noted just how unforgiving the game is, and no, ...[Read More]

The SNES Mini is great and all, but let’s talk Mini N64 dream lists

The Nintendo 64 was my first console and is the reason I love gaming today. I pre-ordered a Nintendo Classic Mini: SNES after some deliberation, but if Nintendo were to release a Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo 64, I would buy it in a heartbeat. The NES Classic had 30 games, the SNES Classic looks to only have 21, so it seems likely that the N64 Classic Mini, if such a thing is ever released, will...[Read More]
