Or if you like vanishing from clothes
In a week's time, a lot of people will be transported to the battlefields of Star Wars Battlefront. EA is expecting around 13 million, in fact. All those folks living out the Star Wars fantasy before shuffling off to th...
Get to know 'er
I sometimes forget that Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981. Its breezy pulp adventure quality carries only obvious signifiers of its era (like, Nazis), and the repetition of these tropes act as enough hand waving to the...
Up from 67% for Advanced Warfare sales
91% of all physical sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops III sold in the UK were for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
According to UK chart company GfK Chart-Track, just 8% were picked up for last-gen consoles PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, leaving just 1% preferring to pick up the game on PC.
The chart does not account for digital sales.
Includes all three free expansions
Arrowhead’s Helldivers was pretty popular when it released on PS3, PS Vita and PS4 earlier this year.
The top-down co-op shooter was given a 9/10 by Destructoid’s Conrad Zimmerman, who said it was “unrelent...
$15.99, 65 tracks
Say what you will about the buggy Fallout games, but the music is pretty fantastic. Today, the soundtrack for Fallout 4 just hit iTunes, where it will run you $15.99 for 65 tracks. It's composed by Inon Zur (who app...
Zombies...uh...zombies, find a way
Call of Duty campaigns are some of the most inconsistent storylines in all of gaming. While some entries are content with wowing you on a constant basis with new setpieces and unique sequences, a number of them (Ghosts&n...
Well, to some it's a problem
Destiny's economy is in constant flux, and Bungie never seems to know what to do about it. This patch everyone seemed to be fine with the changes in The Taken King, but after a few weeks, some issues started creeping up.
They're much more aggressive this gen
When Sony says that shooter fans are switching over to the PS4, it makes perfect sense. I mean heck, it's ahead in console sales by millions of units, so sheer popularity would dictate that more people are inherently playing ...
Star Wars: First Assault
There's Star Wars: Battlefront III. There's Star Wars 1313. There's even that Darth Maul game. But no one mourns Star Wars: First Assault.
According to the YouTube description, "This was a tech beta ran on Xbox Live a while ...
And possibly more, you tourist
Most everyone who is interested in Star Wars Battlefront has a good idea by now if they're buying it. The open beta last month served as a nice test run in that sense. We've all had an opportunity to see what we're gett...
Just like the original Black Ops, there's a hidden arcade game locked within Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It's actually quite easy to access (just select the top-left icon in the video on the mission hub screen), and like its...
Most likely will not care
Activision's in the fortuitous position with Call of Duty where the fanbase is so large that they haven't all adopted current-gen consoles yet. But, that means it's mostly obligated to keep releasing games on legacy sys...
$5/month for 5 days in advance
If you're dropping the five bones per month (get you, Mr. Moneybags; some of us need that $5 for carrots to make soup) on EA Access (Xbox One only), you'll get to play 10 total hours of the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront.
'Fans are hungry for more'
Shortly after the release of The Taken King, rumors started coming out that Bungie would supplement Destiny's new content with cosmetic microtransactions, and would refrain from going back to the underwhelmin...
Looks pretty cool
In the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there was a striking shot of Rey speeding past a long-abandoned Star Destroyer. The scene takes place on a desert planet, Jakku, and the massive ship crash landed...
No relation to Glitch in the System
Epic has been working on Fortnite for a while, but that's not the only title the studio has up its sleeve. Today, it announced Paragon along with a teaser video featuring a guy who kind of looks like if DmC's Dante got buff a...
We average three hours a day, apparently
The Taken King has brought an extra five million players to Destiny, boosting the number of registered players from 20 million to 25 million.
Activision confirmed the figures yesterday during its earnings report.
Also: N7 Day is a thing, apparently?
Apparently November 7 is a day for all things Mass Effect that EA really wants to get off the ground. Think of it like May 4 is for Star Wars, except only really BioWare pays attention to it.
You see, the joke here is that Co...
Paint it black
It wouldn't be a Black Ops release without a celebrity-laden live-action trailer to air during the sports. This times its Michael "Where's Wallace?" Jordan telling the legend of Kevin, who kills people with cyber bees while ...
Digging the ReBoot vibe
Nuketown is a historical map in the Call of Duty franchise. It was first featured in Black Ops, then moved into Black Ops II, where it was also a zombie map, it was remade as "Nukehouse" in the ill-fated Declassified, an...
Also, a Golgoroth map
To this day I run into people who have issues with the King's Fall jumping puzzle in Destiny's newest raid. It's never a problem having to wait (or if they go to orbit), as you only need a certain amount of players to finish ...
That is a ridiculous number
Electronic Arts isn't trying to be Greedo greedy, just ambitious when it says that it expects Star Wars Battlefront to move 13 million copies. Maybe realistic, too. The Star Wars maelstrom of fandom is at a fev...
'Game With makes online play better'
Need new pals for the Destiny raid? Got the Battlefield blues? The Metal Gear Online malaise? A new matchmaking service, Game With, wants to help you connect with your ideal co-op team.
What do you want to see?
Respawn boss Vince Zampella says 2016 is going to be "a very big year for Titanfall".
"We continue to focus on Titanfall," Zampella told Venture Beat. "Next year is going to be a very big year for Titanfall. For us, it is exciting to take this universe we created that is so extensible.
A fantastic twin-stick fix
Every once in a while a game slips past my grasp due to any number of assignments that I have to tackle at a time. One such title is Assault Android Cactus, which I really enjoyed during its Early Access incarnation, and happened to launch just recently on Steam.
I regret not jumping into the final version immediately, as it's one of the best twin-stick shooters in a long while.
Hey, in case you forgot, multiplayer in Uncharted is a thing.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is going to continue the tradition that started with the second iteration, and it appears as if they aren't relying on nostal...
Just like the new Exotic weapon quests
While Destiny is still missing a lot of features, and the loot system is never quite right, Bungie has a ton of variables to account for since it's so massive. Most notably, a millions-strong community that will datamine...
You could say I've been a long-time Blizzard fan. I was right there in 1992 with The Lost Vikings, the company's second game, all the way through the SNES era into Warcraft and Diablo. Over the years I've generally played eve...
Fool me once
The Star Wars Battlefront beta gave rise to funny moments with Luke and Darth Vader, but I need to see more. More gifs, more videos. All of it.
Today's trailer from Paris Games Week shows other heroes and villains in action, ...
Another one for 2016
Horizon Zero Dawn. That's the name I can never seem to remember.
Guerrilla Games showed more footage of its action-RPG at Sony's Paris Games Week conference, and this has to be one of the better-looking upcoming PlayStation 4...
