Titanfall 2 launched a little over tw weeks ago to an absolute minefield of positive reviews from various critics representing all the big names in the video game industry. The problem is that it launched right slap bang between two of the biggest titles in the business, Battlefield and Call of Duty. Fortunately for us, the original game has been one of our most played of this generation of console, so that was enough for me to at least to skip one of those games and pick this up instead. The question remains however, have I made the right decision?
When it comes to anticipating the official announcement of a video game, tensions can soon rise among those looking forward to getting their hands on future games. Fortunately, for those who can’t wait, there’s always Amazon, who have been responsible for more leaked information than all other sources collectively. The latest blunder is in relation to the up-coming sequel to the Star Wars: Battlefront reboot, which disappointed its fans last year, when it launched in November.
It’s been one of the most requested features among the Destiny community ever since the second Destiny Raid, Crota’s End, went live in-game some years ago. Now, finally, former Halo developer Bungie have acknowledged what their fans want, and have hinted that there’s a good chance they’ll be bringing older Raids such as the Vault of Glass or the previously mentioned Crota’s End back with the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion.
When you live in the civilized world there’s certain things in life that are pretty much unavoidable. Social media, talent shows on TV with talentless contestants, people telling you that you shouldn’t do stuff and then this guy, Ken Block, professional rally driver and internet extraordinaire.
Earlier this week the Forza Horizon 3 demo went live on Xbox One giving those anticipating the game an opportunity to trial a small portion of it keeping it in line with the tradition of previous Forza Horizon releases. I (Matt) have been skeptical in regards to a third title in the spin-off series so having the opportunity to play the game before I actually committed to purchase is a pretty big deal for me.
One of the biggest reveals of this year’s Microsoft E3 conference was of course the announcement of Forza Horizon 3 set to follow the ongoing tradition of bi-annual releases for the open world spin-off from the Forza Motorsport series. The third game in the series will be based in Australia and while the official release date for the game is just a matter of weeks away, fans will first get to experience a small portion of the game well before the full game releases.
Back when Halo 5 Guardians was first revealed to the world, Microsoft and 343 Industries boasted about their commitment to continually support the game post launch with additional content completely free of charge. This of course came at the price of Micro-transactions but that was quickly forgiven when fans of the game realized that Halo 5 was to be one of the few AAA titles of this generation to launch without the costly season pass we’ve become so custom too.
It’s been one of the longest ongoing stories 4-One Gaming has ever covered, and while we’ve enjoyed following the story all things eventually have to come to an end. Back in 2014 Lindsay Lohan filed against Grand Theft Auto V publisher Rockstar claiming they had ‘stolen’ her likeness and used it to create the character Lacey Jonas who appears in the game during multiple story missions.
Pokemon Go has been around for a little over a month now and in the time since its release developer Niantic have released several updates which have changed pretty much nothing. In fact, the whole idea seems to be wearing off pretty quickly. However, data miners have uncovered what could be an upcoming feature, a buddy system.
On the off-chance that one or two of you may not have heard, the Battlefield 1 beta launched to the general public yesterday and with the exception of one or two complaints regarding the map that has been made available to play. Things seem to be going rather well for EA. However, as is usually the case with these things, a group of hackers decided to urinate all over everyone’s corn flakes, and took the servers down.
