Fallout 4 is looking better on consoles


New patch increases draw distance
Feb 12
// Laura Kate Dale
While Fallout 4 on consoles is certainly not a terrible-looking game, it's undeniable that it is lagging a little behind the visual quality of the PC release. Frame rate and resolution problems still have some catching up to do, but this new patch brings the console draw distances more inline with the PC version running on high.

For a game that built up as much pre-launch hype as Watch Dogs, it’s super weird that Ubisoft hasn’t made a bigger deal of the inevitable sequel. We know it’s coming though, and we now know it’ll be co...

Infinity Ward is developing this year's Call of Duty game


Shocking news, I know
Feb 11
// Jed Whitaker
Infinity Ward, the developer of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series as well as Call of Duty: Ghosts, confirmed it is working on the next game in the Call of Duty series to be released this year, shocking absolutely no one.  Considering the history of the series, it would be surprising if this doesn't end up being a sequel to Ghosts, even if it wasn't that well-reviewed.
