More Thoughts From Me #244: Online With Final Fantasy

I had never played a Final Fantasy online game before. I didn’t think they’d be for me nor do I want to pay a charge every month. However when I found out that there was a free trial for Final Fantasy 14 on the Playstation 4, I decided it was finally time to try an FF online game. So what do I think? Well… Over the weekend, I’ve been playing Final Fantasy 14’s free trial. And… Actually I like it.…

Escape From Tarkov: The Unsung Hero of FPS Games

One such developer is the Russian-based indie, Battlestate Games. This team has undertaken one of the most ambitious projects I have ever seen with their tactical FPS, Escape From Tarkov.

Have Battle Royale Games Taken Over?

A number of people are dropped on an island with varying terrain that is strewn with a random assortment of weapons. Their goal is simple – be the last one alive. What comes to mind when you read this? I highly doubt that many of you are picturing a book released in Japan 20 years ago.

The Division 2 Review

In an age of early access games and update-driven releases, it is a rarity indeed to find a game that, upon release, truly feels like a finished product.

I sure did!), the community has quickly revolted on Anthem and its creators. This begs the question, does Anthem really deserve all the hate? Or the hype it garnered before that? Let's take a look!
