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]

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]

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]

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]

See a man in a Crash suit try to be a fair dinkum, true blue Aussie bloke

So, the Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy is out now. Some people, like yours truly, are having a blast with it. Others, like my co-editor Charlie, are struggling to love it thanks to its dated feel. I don’t know why people playing a remaster of a 20-year-old game that prides itself on maintaining the original’s feel expected it to play like anything other than a 20-year-old game, but I ...[Read More]

Overwatch loot boxes are about to get less terrible

Look, I love Overwatch. I mean, it was my 2016 Game of the Year, which for a story-less, multiplayer only game is one heck of an achievement. What can I say, I had a great year hooking pesky Tracers and raining justice from elevated positions. But despite Overwatch’s many great elements, its gambling-esque, majorly stacked against you loot box system is the worst. In order to unlock the cosm...[Read More]

Why The Last Night is raising a storm of controversy

There was a period after the Xbox E3 conference where I thought The Last Night developed by Odd Tales looked like one of the cooler indie reveals. Its Blade Runner aesthetics and neon gloom are right up my alley. However, that interest turned to morbid curiosity when it surfaced one of the co-creators, Tim Soret, appears to be a Gamergate supporter. For those not in the loop on Gamergate, it basic...[Read More]

Yoshi is getting a title Made ...[Read More]
