Although the game had its initial gripes and annoyances, the console version will be free of that.   Fatshark’s regular updates and new content allowed the game to thrive, carving out a nice spot for itself in the market. Even if Warhamemr isn’t your thing, Vermintide...

Console Version Of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide Will Be Playable At Gamescom

One of last year’s better games, Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, has been on a very long journey to consoles.

Polygon Enjoy Another Slice of Shady Behaviour

Polygon Enjoy Another Slice of Shady Behaviour

It’s been a fair while since the term ‘clickbait’ was legitimately used, but it seems like the term is relevant in the case of some big sites. Recently, the FTC discovered that Warner Bros Interactive had paid Youtubers to promote their game. This bizarrely surprised many people. It’s hardly a new concept, paid sponsorship has been a thing for years now. Back in 2014, there was a grey area in which not everyone discoloured the fact they were paid to promote products. Heck, the beauty side of youtube was rife with such issues. The chances are your favourite Youtuber has enjoyed a few sponsored dollars or pounds. The key is...

Monster Hunter Stories Amiibo Line Revealed

Monster Hunter Stories Amiibo Line Revealed

Monster Hunter Stories, the spin off from the main series, is getting its own set of Amiibo. The cutesy looking version of the brilliant Capcom series is coming to Nintendo systems in the future, resulting in some rather nice looking Amiibo. There’s only three in the set, at least for now.  As of yet, the three Amiibo have only been confirmed for sale in Japan (starting this December). It would be disappointing if they never made it to Europe. Monster Hunter Stories has no UK release date…hopefully that changes in the coming future. It’ll be interesting to see well Monster Hunter translates to a turn based RPG.  ...

Ubisoft Celebrates Their  30th Anniversary By Giving Away Splinter Cell

Ubisoft Celebrates Their 30th Anniversary By Giving Away Splinter Cell

One of the better titles in their library, Splinter Cell still holds up to modern video games. The game that kick started a franchise that would gift us such joys as Chaos Theory and Pandora Tomorrow, Splinter Cell is available for absolutely nothing. Released in 2002, Splinter Cell ushered in the Ubisoft Tom Clancy era. Originally created to compete with Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell grew into its own beast. Even today the lighting system still impresses. The only catch is you need to be part of the Ubisoft Club to take advantage of the offer. That only requires you a quick sign up to the service free of charge. Splinter...

Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition Announced

If you’ve been waiting for a reason to jump into The Elder Scrolls Online, Bethesda are giving you one.   The Gold Edition of Elder Scrolls Online comes with all four of the major DLC packs, including The Dark Brotherhood, along with a horse…mount. After a rough initial release on PC, which saw the game transition to buy-to-play, Elder Scrolls Online has become a solid MMORPG. It may not be the best on the market, but there’s plenty to enjoy. The Gold Edition sounds like a pretty good deal given it comes with all of the DLC packs. The console version continues to improve, while the PC player base remains...

Is Evolve Going Free-To-Play? *Updated* Officially Confirmed as Free-To-Play

Is Evolve Going Free-To-Play? *Updated* Officially Confirmed as Free-To-Play

Evolve, the game known more for its ridiculous pre-order DLC, is counting down to something.   The official site currently displays a countdown timer with the hashtag #StageUp. What could it mean? There’s been no press releases or any official word so far. With the amount of content currently on the market for the game, could Evolve be going free-to-play? Given how popular the model is, allowing for premium to be sold with a more appealing angle, it could be the next step. Evolve was never a ‘bad’ game, it was just a victim of greed and wing clipping for a cheap buck. Its pre-order DLC was announced before the...
