Destiny 2 review: No longer a guilty pleasure

Reviewed on Xbox One, copy supplied by publisher.  I feel bad for how much I enjoyed the first Destiny. Despite all the issues, I found enough nuggets of fun to last me an absurd amount of time. But Destiny 2 makes the original and all its expansions look like nuggets of shit. I suppose that’s good for a sequel, but it just seems to show how rocky the launch of Bungie’s franchise was, with a ‘cine...[Read More]

Five starting tips for Destiny 2

Like every other reviewer, we’re still grinding our way through Destiny 2, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t already learnt a few things. So, if you haven’t had the time to fully invest yourself into Bungie’s loot-pit, or you’re just plain stuck, here are some quick tips that will help you catch up or give you a smoother experience. Levelling is more streamlined As with The Taken King and Rise of I...[Read More]

Destiny 2 on PC: Beta than console

I covered most of my general thoughts about the Destiny 2 beta in my analysis of the console beta, so I’ll keep most of my focus on how the game performs on PC. In short: Destiny 2’s PC version seems to be the pinnacle of the game. The PS4 version can keep all its exclusives, and Xbox can keep its nothing of value; the PC is where the game runs smoothest and is the most visually stunning. I’m not ...[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]

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]

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]

Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a super expensive standalone release tomorrow

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is officially getting a standalone release following an a recent announcement from Activision. In a decision that is sure to bring some relief to the small group of people who held out on purchasing the Legacy or Legacy Pro editions of last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the rerelease of Modern Warfare will arrive on PS4 both digitally and in r...[Read More]

Here’s the first trailer for Call of Duty: WW2

The new Call of Duty game was originally revealed to be Call of Duty: WW2 last week after a series of leaks and then an official post on Twitter, but overnight Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games hosted a livestream that dropped some more specific details. The most prominent aspect of that livestream was the first official trailer for the game, which you can view below. It boasts that the ...[Read More]

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Sabotage DLC review: Let’s focus on the zombies

Reviewed on: Playstation 4 Despite having an enjoyable, if safe, solo campaign, I find Call of Duty Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer to be severely lacking when compared to the excellent online component found in Black Ops 3. Treyarch’s last outing was a truly full package, and the multiplayer was just so good out of the box, and was bolstered with some great DLC. So, I was hoping IWR...[Read More]

Modern Warfare Remastered requires a game disc to play

Hope you weren’t planning on immediately trading in/refunding that Legacy Pro edition of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare you’ve got on preorder with the hopes of keeping the Modern Warfare Remastered for free, because it looks like you’re going to need the disc in order to play it. On the new website dedicated to the remaster of the 2007 hit, some fine print states (emphasis added...[Read More]

The best E3 moments are the ones we aren’t expecting

E3 2016 is right around the corner, so pretty soon everyone’s newsfeeds will be blasted with so many stories of game reveals, cinematic trailers and awkward PR presentations. It’s an exciting time, as while there are plenty of conferences throughout the year, E3 is usually the one the heavy hitters like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo (although maybe not so much this year) save for their ...[Read More]

Call of Duty 4 Remastered before/after screenshots show how much the game has changed

Look, I’ll be honest here, I’m more excited for the remake of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare announced earlier this week than I am for the new game it will be bundled with, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.  Sure, Infinite Warfare looks pretty cool and Call of Duty in space is something I’ve wanted to see for a while (that average section in Ghosts doesn’t count), but since t...[Read More]
