Rare Rocks: Forget Conker and Play Sea of Thieves

The Rare of today is still one of the best in the biz, and Sea of Thieves proves they can still push great graphics and great gameplay. Unfortunately, that’s not yet been widely acknowledged. Let me be more specific. Sea of Thieves is hugely successful and becoming even more so. It’s the most played Rare game of all time and, even this last weekend, topped the Steam charts yet again. If that is wide acknowledgment, wide acknowledgment has been achieved.…

F1 2021 Features breakdown

F1 2021 the game is just about a month from release, and Codemasters has put a lot into this year’s edition of the vaunted franchise.   The game looks great this year, and features a variety of ways to play:   Breaking Point Story Mode promises on- and off-track drama, starring former F2 nemesis from 2019’s game, Devon Butler. The mode now lasts through three seasons, rather than just a brief sojourn through F2, before reaching its conclusion.   The…

More Thoughts From Me E3 Special Edition: And The Winner Is…

E3 2021 is over! Was it the best E3 ever? Nope. Was it fun? Yep. But, who won? Did anyone win? Let’s talk about who the “winner” of E3 is! E3 2021 was alright. It wasn’t the best E3 ever. It wasn’t even the best game related event this year (those State of Plays and the Dragon Quest event rocked) but it did offer some surprises and delightful games. Xbox and Nintendo did good. Ubisoft and Square Enix were not…

Ninten-DO what Xbox Don’t for E3 Presentations

The Nintendo presentation was a selection of leaked announcements, underwhelming reveals and video quality that almost has me believing the Switch Pro is nothing more than a retail conspiracy theory. So why the hell are people talking about this show so much? For every exciting moment in Nintendo’s E3 presentation, there was an opportunity to sit through the Monster Hunter Stories trailer again, or a Game & Watch toy for the 35th anniversary of Zelda. Ya know, instead of the…

Xbox Gave a Solid Show But It Needed To Be More

Xbox delivered. Tonight’s E3 conference gave a look at a Microsoft that’s all-in on gaming. Great first party titles, big third party support and a mountain of Game Pass games. Subscribers are going to have a great six months, there’s no arguing with that. This is about as good as you can get in an E3 conference without announcing Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shenmue 3 and The Last Guardian. So it’s really unfair that it wasn’t enough. As someone who…

More Thoughts From Me E3 Special Edition: Square Enix Brings The Guardians And Not Much Else

Going into the Square Enix E3 event, I had two things I really wanted to see: the rumored Guardians of the Galaxy game and some Japanese Square games. Well, we got both but…let’s get into the event in the article! The rumored Guardians of the Galaxy game is real! Wow. And it looked awesome. I loved it so much. The graphics, the dialogue, the action, the adventure, THE SOUNDTRACK. I just want to play this game now. After that reveal…

More Thoughts From Me E3 Special Edition: Xbox and Bethesda Bring It

The Xbox/Bethesda event was today and…well, actually it was really really good! Let’s talk about it! I had high hopes going into the Xbox/Bethesda event and guess what? They mostly delivered! I say mostly because I didn’t feel like there was anything too surprising during the event and they did make one misstep, which I will talk about later, but otherwise… The event started with Starfield. It was just a CGI trailer with no gameplay but it looked amazing. I…

More Thoughts From Me E3 Special Edition: Ubisoft’s Dull Show Ends With A Bang

Ubisoft had their E3 event today and…well…look at the title. I mean, I know that kind of sums things up, but let me go into more detail. Ubisoft’s E3 event was today and…well technically its still going on as I write this. They have a post-show event about this Rainbow Six thing. I do not care. I have it on anyway. Let’s back up. What did I think of the pre-Ubisoft show? Um. It was not much of a pre-show…

More Thoughts From Me Special Edition: Is Summer Game Fest Over Yet?

Summer Game Fest, the Geoff Keighley pre-E3 event, happened today. I watched it all and now I have some thoughts on it. I thought that Summer Game Fest would never end. The Geoff Keighley event lasted a long time and after that was an indie game focused Day of the Devs event. Let’s talk about the main Summer Game Fest event first. Geoff Keighley is the host of the Game of Awards an also the host of Summer Game Fest.…
