Announces   The licenses for most major football leagues and tournaments have been held by EA. Most would of expected EA to make a new game/DLC based on this year’s UEFA Euros, but they no longer have the license. Konami have pulled a Leicester City and surprised everyone by revealing PES 2016: UEFA Euro. This is the first time Konami has had the chance to create a game with the license.

Dark Souls 3′s Commercial Success Validates The Lack Of Easy Mode

Dark Souls 3′s Commercial Success Validates The Lack Of Easy Mode

Dark Souls 3′s strong sales has surely put to bed the idea that its difficulty is a problem. One of the core arguments about adding a easy mode was that the inclusion would increase sales. While that may have some truth to it, kudos should be paid towards From Software for sticking to their proven formula. From Software has saw their franchise make history for publisher Bandai Namco. Dark Souls 3 has became their most successful launch day game to date, all while recording a personal best for the franchise. Dark Souls 1 & 2 failed to reach number one in the charts after their respective release. The third, and...

Are Ubisoft Leaving The Division To Rot?

Are Ubisoft Leaving The Division To Rot?

After leaving Rainbow Six: Siege to wilt in the corner, it seems Ubisoft are slowly doing the same with The Division. Boring updates and a lack of bug fixes are slowly killing the game. The lack of direction in how to deal with hackers (not to mention the IP{ leaks when using voice chat) in the Dark Zone is also a issue.  ...

Promising Potential – Battleborn Multiplayer Beta Impressions

Promising Potential – Battleborn Multiplayer Beta Impressions

* Based Purely on the PVP multiplayer* Battleborn’s Open Beta event has cleared up a number of things. The general worry was that this Battleborn was a cheap cash-in on ‘Hero shooters’ has thankfully been proved wrong. That doesn’t mean the Beta wasn’t without its flaws, or suggestions of problems that could arise in the retail release. At the heart of the game is MOBA-like flow, with similarities to Monday Night Combat. Two teams push into the opposition’s side of the map. Depending on the game mode, the end goals are different but are essential achieved in the same way. Incursion tasks players with taking out the enemy team’s towering...

This Is Not A Doom For Doom Fans, It’s For New Fans – Doom Multiplayer Beta Impressions

This Is Not A Doom For Doom Fans, It’s For New Fans – Doom Multiplayer Beta Impressions

Doom was shaping up well, the trailer looked fantastic. How could you not be drawn in by the return to old school FPS? Bunny hops, rocket jumps, carrying an entire arsenal on your back. It was supposed to be beautiful, it was supposed to be great…so why did they have to go mess it up? After 2 hours with Doom’s mutliplayer Beta I don’t think I could hate the game more. Hate may be a strong word, but it’s used correctly in this case. Doom 2016 is not Doom, it’s just a cash-in on the franchise. They’ve stripped all but the art style away from the game, replacing it with...

Huge Free Expansion For Xbox One & PC Title The Solus Project Is On The way

The Solus Project, released earlier this year via Steam Early Access, was one of the more impressive survival titles.

This new update adds the towering Highpoint island to the game, complete with massive cave to explore. All of this new free content adds around 3-4...

Dark Soul’s Difficulty Is In Its DNA – The Easy Mode Debate

Dark Soul’s Difficulty Is In Its DNA – The Easy Mode Debate

Earlier this week I spoke about people wanting ‘Easy mode’ put into Dark Souls 3. The reaction was fairly split between people for this and against it. Obviously my views remain the same, Dark Souls should stay the way it is. The idea that people see difficulty as a problem is rather disheartening. Much like a good story or a neat mechanic, difficulty can enhance a video game. In truth, challenge can enhance most things in life, even if you don’t like to admit it. Dark Souls has always been hard, but never to the point where it’s unfair. Each death is comes with a lesson. Players gain a appreciation...

Dark Souls 3′s release is just around the corner, but does it need a easy mode? After a number of articles posted by sites, and comments seen on various boards, the debate over adding a Easy mode is as strong as ever. Does Dark Souls 3 need easier settings? is ‘get good’ a valid argument?  ...

Neverwinter, the free-to-play MMORPG, has done a great job of constantly welcoming new content. The PC version stands as a truly bulky option for those looking for alternatives when it comes to MMORPGs.   One element that rarely gets the cover it deserves is the console version of the game.
