2023: A Look at the Third Parties

blank My round-up of 2023 glossed over third party support. In a year that’s going to be dominated by first party bighitters, it seemed like there just wasn’t the space. But here we go: a closer look at some of the third party games that we’ll be talking about this time next year too. Some of them we’ll be talking about positively, others not so much. Some will surprise, others will disappoint. I’ve tried to avoid timed exclusives unless there’s absolute…

Thats tomorrow! It will be available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4/PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. I remember playing Crisis Core on the PSP and liking the game.

Xbox Price Rise is an Understandable Disappointment

blank Xbox games will increase from $60 to $70 starting next year, and that’s a massive disappointment. Any price rise is understandable, but still disappointing. They’re not the first to do it. They join the likes of Sony, Activision and others in raising their base prices. And, of course, it helps that all these games go into Game Pass day one anyway. The price rise will hit those unwilling to subscribe but still interested in playing the hardest. During a cost…

 

Sea of Thieves Season Eight Live Now

blank It’s hard to believe just how far this game has come and how many people are still playing it loyally. Available today is the launch of season 8 of Sea of Thieves. Season 8 introduces the ability to engage in ship-to-ship PvP combat on demand. Using the new Hourglass of Fortune, players can declare loyalty for one of two Factions, and in the process opt-in to engage players of the rival Faction in Pirate vs Pirate battles for Allegiance, Treasure,…

 

Back To The Call of Duty Time Sink

blank There are regularly jokes about people buying Call of Duty and playing nothing but Call of Duty until the next game is out. Honestly, it’s easy to see why. Because you CAN. The amount of content these games offer up is unreal. Now, being able to alter and tinker with dozens of guns, in dozens of game modes both online and offline might not appeal to everybody. It doesn’t always appeal to me. But for those that it works for…

 
 

PlayStation doesn’t NEED Call of Duty

blank 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

blank 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 ...

 

Call of Duty: Are Sequels Just More Marketing?

blank 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 ...
