Battlefield 1 Behemoth guide – Wreck or get rekt

While we trudge on through Battlefield 1 for our review, let me just take a second to present a guide to tackling the classic multiplayer shooter’s newest addition to the formula: behemoths.  These monstrosities will spawn for losing teams depending on the score difference and time that has passed, and they have the power to turn the tide of the battle if used effectively. Here are some tips...[Read More]

Some snapshots from Skyrim Special Edition

So Skyrim Special Edition launched yesterday for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC, and once again we can all ignore our real life responsibilities and venture out into the wilderness, take arrows to our knees and Fus-Ro-Dah to anyone who’ll listen/be blown away. While we’ve already seen a comparison between the PS3 and PS4 versions this past weekend, I thought I’d hop on the PC ver...[Read More]

Destiny’s hellish Halloween microtransactions

Destiny’s Halloween event, Festival of the Lost, has returned, with significantly more rewards, and significantly fewer of them are free. Haven’t heard of these rewards yet? Don’t worry, Bungie and Activision made a trailer showcasing all of the exclusive microtransactions! Many new masks and other cosmetic items are up for grabs, but there are three in particular that players are gravitating towa...[Read More]

Keen for more Nintendo Switch info? You’ll have to wait until January

Nintendo ain't talking about the Switch again until January...

Jim Sterling narrating the Nintendo Switch trailer is better than the real thing

We talk about Jim Sterling a lot around here, like how a game developer he justifiably trashed tried to sue him and how he’s bang on in his crusade against microtransactions in full priced games. As well as being a powerful voice in modern gaming media, as much as he stresses he’s not a journalist, he’s also a great entertainer and sometimes he combines those two things to great ...[Read More]

Skyrim is looking pretty good on PS4

While PC players have been struggling to get excited about the remaster of Skyrim launching this week, what with mods and high resolution texture packs for the original already doing the job for them (yeah, yeah, master race joke), console players are in for a treat if this comparison video is anything to go by. (Also Bethesda have confirmed that Skyrim Special Edition will be getting mod support ...[Read More]

Saddle up, the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer is here

So, remember that image Rockstar Games tweeted out the other day that got everyone talking? Well, surprising no one, turns out it was really the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2. RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 Coming Fall 2017#RDR2 — Rockstar Games (@RockstarGames) October 18, 2016 What’s more, it teased the first trailer for the game dropping on...[Read More]

Watch the Nintendo NX reveal trailer here

We’ve wondered for some time now what Nintendo’s new console, codenamed the NX, would be; and there’s been a lot of rumours flying around the past year. Would it be some kind of hybrid of a home console that also functions as a portable one? A 900p gaming but 4K video streaming multimedia, Playstation/Xbox killer? Will Nintendo finally satisfy its desire to watch us sleep?! Well,...[Read More]

Amnesia: Collection coming to PS4, but the trailer isn’t great

I remember my first, and only, attempt to play Frictional Games’ Amnesia: The Dark Descent in 2010 on PC. It was dark, very strange, and had an atmosphere of such dread and despair that I began sweating balls, shouted “NOPE,” and quit and never went back. As I’ve said before, horror games either excite me to press through the terror or scare me so much I have to leave if I ...[Read More]

Watch Dogs 2 delayed on PC by two weeks

Well, this is certainly unheard of. I mean, a Ubisoft game’s PC version being delayed by two weeks compared to its console counterparts? This is certainly a first. Wait, did I say “a first”? I meant the other thing, what do you call it, “no surprise at all, since this happens to pretty much all their PC ports.” If you couldn’t tell from my sarcasm and the headli...[Read More]

Rockstar Games shared a red version of its logo and everyone’s losing their minds

Most teases from video game developers come in the form of short, shallow trailers or “leaked” screenshots; little tidbits containing not so many details but at least a firm confirmation of the product being teased. Otherwise what are people supposed to be getting hyped about? But then there are companies like Rockstar Games, who are in the rare position where they’ve earned the ...[Read More]

Anti-Trump billboard slams him as bad gamer who mains Hanzo

Of course Donald Trump would main as Hanzo in Overwatch. Always running off on his own, spamming pot shots at whatever he damn feels like regardless of usefulness or relevance while both his own team and his opposition yell at him to pull his head in. Now who knows if the Republican presidential nominee actually plays Overwatch when he takes a break from his buffoonery, but the recent comparison m...[Read More]
