What makes a good game great? What makes a great game timeless? I can't say for sure, but I know that Final Fantasy X helped show me what that answer might be. It was released on the PlayStation 2 over 16 years ago and I just want to say that in hindsight, this game is a true marvel and should be experienced by every gamer.
Gamers across the world observe that the MMORPG isn't just going to die, but that it already is. Once World of Warcraft's dated gameplay catches up to it, what will happen to the one booming and competitive genre of gaming? Are MMORPGs awaiting their death sentence? Let's look at what we know and find out.
In a somber and bitter goodbye letter to a once-beloved game developer, I recall Bethesda's fall from grace before and after the release of Fallout 4. From their treatment of the modding community, to the constant paid re-releases, to the latest paid mods failure, it's past time to say goodbye to yet another developer that's given into greed. See you later, Vault Boy.
The highly acclaimed Black Desert Online released on Steam just last week and is what I wished every MMORPG I've played in the past several years was. From its visceral, intense PvE and PvP combat, to its rewarding trading and economics, and even the beautiful sights along the way, there's no other game I'd recommend to people for the summer.
Today, September 7, 2016, marks the day of Apple's keynote where they unveiled the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus, the Apple Watch 2, new EarPods and wireless AirPods, and the new generation of the iWork suite. Apple also commented on the app store and introduced Nintendo into the fold of mobile gaming.
Bethesda Game Studios has plenty to come under fire for, and although it's very tempting to explode into a rant criticizing them for their poor DLC plans or their deplorable treatment of the modding community in recent months, they sometimes do something reminiscent of why fans flocked to them to begin with.
Bethesda Softworks has been teasing at Nuka-World for months now, promising an exciting Nuka-Cola theme park controlled by Raiders and irradiated monsters. Several new weapons, armors, characters and areas have been shown already in the official trailer. The sixth DLC for Fallout 4 is expected to be the last DLC released for Fallout 4, at a price of $19.99 or as included in the Season Pass.
They criticized Fallout 4 for not being fun. They said it wasn't amusing. They dared to claim that it didn't have enough deadly paddle balls for weapons. On August 30, Nuka-World releases on Fallout 4 and will blow all of those comments out of the Nuka-Cola. Are you ready to go to post-apocalyptic America's number one theme park?
The highly anticipated sandbox game No Man's Sky released late last night for PlayStation 4 owners. Developer Hello Games also released a day one patch that adds and improves on many features. Trust us, this update is huge.
Starbound has been one of the most highly-anticipated indie games since its inception 3 years ago. It reached its maximum crowdfunding goal of $1,000,000 shortly after it was announced and developer Chucklefish Games has been hard at work for years to get Starbound to its full release, which finally went live on July 22. Offering an endless (literally) amount of content for $14.99 surely is a bold move, Chucklefish.
I know what you're probably thinking. Another Fallout 4 settlement expansion? Fortunately, Bethesda was kind enough to detail the upcoming add-on, announcing that it would come with its own quest line that will throw players into the role of either a benevolent overseer or sadistic tyrant. Which one will you be?
A recent comparison between the quest "Brain Dead" in Fallout 4's first expansion Far Harbor and Autumn Leaves, a mod for Fallout: New Vegas, may indicate that Bethesda Game Studios is perhaps a little too inspired by their modding community. After the Bethesda.net and plagiarism fiasco, it would seem that Bethesda has still got a ways to go before they mend relations with modders.
Microsoft confirmed rumors of an Xbox One slim edition last month after dozens of reported leaks came from several sources. Today, they've confirmed that the 2TB Xbox One S would be available on August 2, with those who preorder it getting it right away.
The second part of the Se7enSins Fallout 4 Mod Spotlight series seeks to improve on the vanilla Survival experience, added in patch 1.5. The difficulty setting, a fan-favorite from Fallout: New Vegas, opened the door to many possibilities and options for players that add several new and unique challenges to the game. The mods included here build on those challenges and define them further.
Mouse developer Swiftpoint has come out with one of the most creative and advanced gaming mouses. Their Kickstarter has now reached more than twice its goal, with supporters ecstatic to get their hands on this mouse that offers functionality in 3-dimensions instead of 2-dimensions.
