PlayStation doesn’t NEED Call of Duty

In all the debates around Microsoft’s purchase of Activision, one has been the most frequent. How is PlayStation going to cope without Call of Duty? Should they have to? Is it fair? It’s been a while since we last looked at the Activision purchase. That’s mostly because a fat lot of nothing has happened. Decisions have been delayed, as you’d expect from a purchase of this size. A decision will still be made by the end of this financial year,…

More Thoughts on Overwatch 2

It’s fair to say that Overwatch 2 has been the dominant game for me since it released. When I’m not playing it, I’m thinking about it. When I am playing it, I’m wondering why I’m not playing better. It’s still a great game. If anything, it’s a perfect team shooter let down by minor details (and its major battle pass problems). Today we will go through a few more of the issues I’ve found through extensively playing. Unfortunately, Overwatch is…

Call of Duty: Are Sequels Just More Marketing?

Call of Duty is out, and the talk of the day isn’t about its tight multiplayer or enjoyable campaign. Most conversation seems wrapped around the NEXT Call of Duty. This one isn’t getting a sequel, it’s getting a “premium expansion” – and just what is the difference? If instead of another Black Ops game we get Modern Warfare 2-2, only it’s a paid expansion and everything is done via update… does it actually make any discernable difference in the eyes…

Overwatch 2 Pass Still Doesn’t Sit Right

Like all good addicts, I’m still knee-deep into my return to Overwatch 2. That’s giving me a long time to consider the battle pass, and just how much it takes out of the game. I’ve done the review.¬†I’ve spent a decent amount of time with new – or newish – characters. It is, as it always way, a bloody good game. So why is the monetization so bloody bad? The battle pass takes a key part of the first…

Game Pass is Profitable – So What Now?

If there has been one sign that the console wars have grown up, it’s this. We no longer argue about lists of games. Instead, we argue over corporate decisions. Nowhere has that been more obvious than in the conversation about Game Pass’s profitability. Game Pass wasn’t sustainable. Then it wasn’t good for the industry. Then it was both, but it wasn’t profitable. Now, thanks to a new interview with Xbox’s Phil Spencer, we know that it is profitable. Which is…

Overwatch 2: Bastion Guide

Everybody’s favourite bird/robot combination has returned to Overwatch – but Bastion is not as you remember him. The famously tough little robot can no longer heal, and his high damage gun is now a temporary move. In some ways this feels like a nerf – especially when you’re surrounding by Tracers and Sombras – but in others it opens him up as a very different charcacter. If the unfortunately missing Assault was still in the mix – and I hope…

Resident Evil Re:Verse Still Exists

Resident Evil Re:Verse still exists and, well, that’s news to me. The multiplayer game, which has been delayed twice, will be free to owners of Village from October 28th. The multiplayer mode for Village was met with skepticism when it was announced nearly two years ago. That was only increased when it was delayed from May 7 – alongside Village – to Summer, and then again to a vague 2022. Well, surprise surprise, it’s still coming in 2022. In fact,…

The Game Pass Deluge is Beginning

Game Pass has always been great, but it’s got to the point where it’s now also impossible to keep up with. This is a fantastic problem to have. For an average adult with broad tastes, Game Pass has now tipped the scales from very cool to overwhelming. And with a mountain of first-party content expected in the first half of next year, that’s a problem that’s going to remain with us for months to come. This thought occurred to me…

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team Overview

It’s another year and that means another FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) is ready to be put together. All that card collecting you loved to do as a kid now has a purpose, as you open packs of virtual cards to attempt and create the best FUT team possible. I’ve been at the game for about two weeks now, and have immensely¬†enjoyed my time with FUT. What’s changed? Let’s take a look! The biggest change you will see this year…
