It’s been a while since a game has given me such an emotional rollercoaster ride.
When I first heard about the game Sea of Thieves I was told to think of an MMO version of Assassin's Creed Black Flag, but without the assassin aspect, so my expectations were high. Sadly, I missed the early access testing, but I had read positive things.
Even with its controversy, EA have released an amazing game.
I was one of those people who pre-ordered Star Wars Battlefront II right after the Beta, I’d seen what was on offer and liked it. Even when all the controversy came up regarding the loot box situation, I just thought 'I can play this without spending the extra’ and I can proudly say that I haven't spent a dime AND unlocked at least one of the premium characters.
GTA V is the game that just keeps on giving.
Grand Theft Auto V initially came out way back in 2013 with its online component following just two weeks later. But what sets GTA apart from other games series is the DLC’s (Down Loadable Content) are free and really fucking good.
Call it old and outdated all you want, but Halo: Combat Evolved changed the First Person Shooter genre forever.
Back in 2001 it seemed the console wars were over and it looked like PlayStation had won with the PS2, which had come out just the year before, since Sega had discontinued manufacturing the Dreamcast after just under 2 years and fell off the radar and while Nintendo would eventually bring out the GameCube (which I think suited younger gamers rather than a more mature audience) they felt like they were more interested in the hand-held side of things. But all that changed when Microsoft decided they wanted in on the action and brought the Xbox system to the table. Upon its release, the Xbox had a small handful of games ready to go, but one of them would change the gaming world - Halo: Combat Evolved.
Call it a remake, reboot or even a remastering, hell call it whatever you want, just as long as you admit this is an awesomesauce game.
DOOM is the latest in the offering in the video game series of the same name and I’m going to be brutally honest and say it: it’s absolutely brilliant. Developed by id Software and published by Bethesda, DOOM is a re-imagined version of the 1993 original.
It’s a horror first person shooter (FPS) that’s fast and aggressive with emphasis on speed and firepower. Originally it was going to be a sequel to 2004’s Survival Horror shooter DOOM 3, then a prequel based on earth but being more similar in gameplay to the Call of Duty series before being redesigned yet again and becoming what we have now.
