Overwatch’s Christmas Content Is More Of What Makes Overwatch Great

Overwatch’s Christmas Content Is More Of What Makes Overwatch Great

It’s the Christmas season, Overwatch is in full festive cheer. The latest content drop is filled with Santa hats, elf ears and snowball fights. Aside from all the new skins, sprays and poses, the latest content provides a great example of why Overwatch works so well, and I’m not talking about the gameplay. Blizzard have masterfully built worlds for years now. Their ability to create new various universes, filling them with characters and lore, is arguably their greatest asset. Much like World of Warcraft and Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch is filled with little details that breathe life into the world.   At this point, we’ve all fallen in-love with...

Battlefield 1′s Four Most Annoying Traits

Battlefield 1′s Four Most Annoying Traits

Battlefield 1 is currently storming the charts, as well as earning high praise from consumer and critics alike. With amazing visuals, intense multiplayer action, and a campaign that’s not too shabby. There’s plenty to enjoy, but it’s not perfect. Frustrations and annoyances float around very aspects of the game, not all of them are exactly DICE’s fault however. These are three worst things about Battlefield 1 -     Scaled Back Destruction - For a game set during a time where the power of explosives and artillery was stunning the masses, not much can really be blown up. A number of walls will remain standing unless hit by certain weapons...

No Man’s Sky Backlash Represents A Possible Consumer Turning Point

No Man’s Sky Backlash Represents A Possible Consumer Turning Point

No Man’s Sky may be Steam’s most poorly reviewed game, but that doesn’t reflect the game itself. If Hello Game’s product was merely disappointing, maybe even bad, no one would have been talking about the game this late after release. Reaction to the game speaks volumes about the state of the modern industry, at least from the consumers point of view. Some critics and publications may have went into overdrive trying to defend the game, but the consumers had no time for it. No Man’s Sky was sold on lies, not just a few white ones either. From features being promised then revoked only to be subsequently hidden under stickers...

We Happy Few Is Nothing Like Bioshock, Avoid Disappointment

We Happy Few Is Nothing Like Bioshock, Avoid Disappointment

We happy Few has seemingly got many people confused. When ever you see a gameplay video or Early Access lets play, you’ll be sure to see someone mention Bioshock. The unfortunate thing, at least for them, is We Happy Few has little to no shared Bioshock vibes. Gameplay is based purely on survival, this is not a simple case of shooting your way through. The player is vulnerable, struggling to keep their head above water. Areas are open, allowing the player to explore and discover. Yes, We Happy Few is played in the first person, but that’s one of the few similarities the two games share. The tone of the...

How Well Does Ana Fit Into Overwatch?

How Well Does Ana Fit Into Overwatch?

Ana, Overwatch’s newest hero, has been around for a few days now, but how does she fit in? She’s one of the more curious heroes that doesn’t directly compare to her peers. It’s not a bad thing, even though it has left a number of players seemingly playing her incorrectly. At her core, Ana is more of a secondary healer and crowd controller. Her primary attack heals a fair amount, but nothing that till carry a team. She thrives on situations in which she can stay out of the action. Distance and positioning is key to getting the best out of Ana, even if that means feeling a little left...

Curious Challenge Limited By Design – Furi Review (PC)

Curious Challenge Limited By Design – Furi Review (PC)

Difficulty in video games has garnered a love/gate relationship. By their very nature, difficult games spilt people down the middle between those able to play and those who crumble. Furi does not care about those people who crumble, it revels in their failings. At the heart of the game, Furi is the accumulation of various old school elements fused with 80s synth music and anime. The results are a odd buffet of success and failures, but undeniable charm. Furi focuses of the game is 1-on-1 combat, complete with their own dramatic build ups. It knows what it wants to be, it’s confident in its approach, even when things don’t turn...

The Motivation To Play Overwatch Is Slowly Dwindling

The Motivation To Play Overwatch Is Slowly Dwindling

Overwatch isn’t just a game at this point, it’s became a culture. So many communities spawning from the game, a gigantic sub-reddit…and all those memes. The game has done what most Blizzard games do, become more than ‘just a game’. The confusing thing for me is this, Overwatch is becoming less enjoyable as time rolls on. It’s not that I dislike the game, far from it in fact. Each week seems to produce more annoyances without fail. Toxic team mates, players who refuse to play and the meme masters. Oh yes, the players who just want to be really cool and funny by playing awful (on purpose) while spamming memes...
