I wouldn't mind them adding some select mw2 and mw3 maps. It could be interesting to turn this remaster into a best of type of collection over the next couple of years.
Battlefield has received plenty of praise from those who have played it, Titanfall 2 on the other hand has received a mixed reaction from those who participated in the technical test. Battlefield has been around for ages now and is a very well known IP, Titanfall 2 isn't, or at least, not as much. I really don't understand why EA would be more optimistic about Titanfall 2. It's almost as if those in management who wanted to shoot down a pre-WW2 Battlefield still can't get behi...
Well that isn't very surprising. The release date certainly isn't helping, with both Battlefield One and Call of Duty coming out only weeks away from Titanfall 2. Add to that the fact that ever since its reveal, Battlefield One has received some very positive coverage, while Titanfall has received some mixed reactions. It's also worth noting that out of the three games, Titanfall is the least well known.
And, while I haven't tried the technical test of Titan...
Too bad EA shut down Westwood; Petroglyph Games simply haven't made games nearly as good and enjoyable as the old Command and Conquer games (including the Red Alert series). And, for the most part, the same can be said about EALA (or EA Pacific).
While Earth and Beyond was a flop, I still think in the long run it would have been more profitable for EA to keep Westwood as it was, doing so might have saved the Command and Conquer franchise from falling into mediocrity.
Well, Jim is one of the few reviewers I trust to be honest in his reviews. I might not always agree with him, but at least I'm confident he's not basing his reviews purely on getting hits on his website (as it's ad-free and patreon supported) or being paid by publishers.
With that being said, a 5/10 seems a bit harsh. I can't wait to actually read the review itself, seeing how the website seems to have crashed.
I really wish Microsoft would make their entire catalog BC-compatible. I understand that third-party published games may take a while to be BC, and some likely never will make it, but there's no reason as to why games like Crackdown, Lost Odyssey or Ninety-Nine Nights aren't already on the list as they all are Microsoft-published games.
I'm guessing by now that we're not getting Crackdown and its sequel in BC until Crackdown 3 launches. And I guess Microsoft has no interest in making Ninety-nine nights BC compatible. Or Lost Odyssey for that matter.
I understand that they need the publisher's approval before allowing a title to be BC, but there are quite a few Microsoft published games that have yet to be enabled, some of which were quite entertaining back in the day too.
The GO games they are making are well suited for touch controls, are based on established franchises, are original games as opposed to being a poor adaptation of an existing title and can be quite fun to play. They are also priced fairly, unlike other games (including many by SE).
Once more developers start to develop their mobile games with the touchscreen in mind rather than developing the game first and putting an on-screen gamepad overlay afterwards, we'll start see...
If that's the main reason behind the Neo, one would assume Microsoft is in a similar situation as both are being supplied bu AMD.
I don't think it will beat Call of Duty in sales this year. I know that both are military shooters, but one is built around arcade style, arena-sized maps with no vehicles, while the other one is about larger maps (although dwarfed by other games like ArmA3) and some vehicles. Two different styles of game play, two similar but somewhat different audiences as well.
Bigger isn't necessarily better, it's just a matter of preferences. I must say that choosing an alt...
Will get Uncharted on PS4 and Overwatch on PC. Homefront looks decent enough, but I'll probably wait for a sale or a price drop for it, same for Total War, which I totally forgot was coming out this month.
Microsoft already has a platform ready for VR, it's called Windows.
The one thing I think can be considered an annoyance by some gamers, is the fact that Hitman will be a 60$ game for much longer than most games. By releasing the disc version next year, they just made sure their game would be a 60$ title for about a year, since I highly doubt they'll release it below that price point. It's also effectively killing the used games market for about 9 months.
My guess would be that new Nintendo IPs will sell well if they are marketed well and are actually good games. Splatoon received a considerable amount of marketing and was a pretty great game, two things I would argue do not apply to Codename S.T.E.A.M.. It wasn't an horrible game, but certainly didn't live up to the expectations.
I really don't why the need for this particular series to come back this generation. I'm not saying I'm against the idea of a new Turok game, but I certainly do believe there are many games more worthy of being rebooted than Turok. And here's why, Turok games have appeared on the last 3 console generations, and have been decent to average since the second game. Granted, Turok Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2 Seeds of Evil were pretty good. But Shadow of Oblivion w...
I think that as time goes on, and if Nintendo plays their cards well, Amiibos could become a mainstay for them. If the NX has strong amiibo support AND still supports the current Wii-U/N3DS ones, it could work.
While I highly doubt consoles will die anytime soon, I don't think that the PS4 sales alone are proof that the console business is healthy. While the PS4 could very beat the PS3 in terms of sales, or maybe, if the generation lasts long enough, even reach PS2-like sales, this generation of consoles as a whole is most likely going to move less units than the preceding one. The Wii moved around 100 million units, with both the X360 and the PS3 selling around 85 millions eac...
Why do we need a female Link? Link is a character, he's a white male. And that's about it, that's who and what he is. Would it be okay if people were to ask for a male Samus Aran? For some reason, I'm pretty sure a lot of the people asking for a female Link would fiercely oppose a male Samus. I really don't care about whether or not Nintendo decides to include a female Link in future games, but I don't understand why a lot of people a...
Can't wait for Apple to tell us that there's no benefit to go beyond the resolution of their "retina" display for VR, and how they invented VR and are pioneering it despite being years late to the market. But hey, if it gets more people on board the VR hype train, something VR needs to not end up half forgotten like 3D TVs, then having people tell me how "magical" the iVR is, is a small price to pay.
When it comes to gaming, I feel many will have fond memories of Motorhead thanks to THPS3. A great legend who let's be honest, probably lived longer than most ever expected.
