Her arsenal includes an M12 and SPAS-15 for primary weapons, a PRB92 as a secondary,...

Battlefield Continues To Be Watered Down, But That’s Fine

Battlefield Continues To Be Watered Down, But That’s Fine

The more I see of Battlefield 1, the less interesting it becomes. Ever since Battlefield 2, the series has been on a downwards spiral in terms of depth and complexity. Gimmicks and fancy effects became increasingly important than gameplay and variety. It’s not to say that this has been a purely bad thing, but it’s starting to become worrying. Battlefield 1942 still remains as one of the most important video games of the modern era. The sheer size and scale opened up a whole new world of multiplayer video games. It was the first time that large scale combat could be enjoyed outside of 2001′s World War 2 online. After...

From Skill To Skins & Scams  – The Changing Faces of Counter-Strike

From Skill To Skins & Scams – The Changing Faces of Counter-Strike

At this point, everyone has heard about the scummy behaviour surrounding Counter-Strike GO gambling and two bell ends exploiting the trust of their tween fans. It oddly says a fair amount about the current state of Counter-Strike, a series once treasured as the retreat from the gimmicks of main stream multiplayer. Counter-Strike is one of the most important video games ever. Its MOD roots grew from the thriving scene in the 90′s, a scene that incubated so many great ideas and talents. There’s no short cuts or gimmicks to Counter-Strike, it was the most raw version of team based multiplayer. Skill was king, communication and team work was vital, a...

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...

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...

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...
