Halo 5’s Firefight adds new flavour to the classic

– James Orr After a few weeks of anticipation, the beta for Halo 5’s incoming gamemode, ‘Warzone Firefight’ is out. While I enjoyed the introduction of Firefight in Halo 3: ODST, I wasn’t a huge fan of Halo: Reach’s firefight and loathed Halo 4’s version, Spartan Ops; but surprisingly, 343 Industries seems to have brought firefight back with all new bells and whistles. Warzone Firefight does...[Read More]

Is the Destiny update light at the end of the tunnel?

– James Orr Destiny’s new update adds FREE content for owners of Destiny: The Taken King. That’s right, after six months of waiting, players finally have new things to do. Unfortunately, it’s only a couple of hours of content and one new exotic, Zen Meteor, which is a Playstation exclusive. But its unique effect, ‘Dynamite with a Laser Beam,’ is a Queen reference, so bonus points for that. T...[Read More]

Steam users really didn’t like the DOOM beta

Following a closed beta test last month, the new DOOM had its public multiplayer beta test this past weekend so anyone and everyone curious about the title could finally give it a go.

– Kyle Tander To start things off let me just admit that I’m not much of a Dark Souls veteran. Until recently I had only ever played the first Dark Souls, but maybe that’s the way it should be. I’ve heard a lot of people say that the third is much more of a sequel to the original than Dark Souls II ever was. Now let’s talk about the differences between the two. You’re...[Read More]

Why I exploit The Division

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of The Division, I’ve been consistently writing about it since release and have sunk five days into the game. It’s also no secret that the shit has well and truly hit the fan with the latest 1.1 patch, which introduced some very exploitable end game content. By using the mobile cover glitch players have been able to break into the Falcon Lo...[Read More]

The Division: You can still exploit Police Academy

It was relatively common knowledge that prior to patch 1.1 in The Division you could exploit the Police Academy mission for loot and Phoenix Credits. To do so you had to deploy mobile cover in a doorway at the right angle, allowing you to slide along the cover and into the building. In the building there is a echo, and once activated it allowed you to cut the mission length down to just the final ...[Read More]

R.I.P. B.K: Mobile game brings back infamous Division grind

The Bullet King was truly a saint and martyr in The Division, he sacrificed himself countless times so that people could mass gear and Phoenix Credits. It was with no real surprise that B.K was given a permadeath status after news of his exploitable life spread. Except maybe he still lives on… It turns out there is still a way you can farm the Bullet King, but it’s not in The Division....[Read More]
