  • Borderlands 3 Being Teased By Take Two?
    Bald Bouncer
    While this year is going to be a quieter year for Take 2, after the delay of Red Dead Redemption 2 into next year, it sounds like 2018 is promising to be a pretty big and eventful one for them. Not only is Red Dead Redemption 2 going to be out then, but it sounds like Take 2 is teasing another ‘huge title’ for next year, too.

    “Obviously fiscal 2019 will look much better with the launch of Red Dead 2 and a huge new title from 2K, as well as the 2K Sports titles, catalogue, recurrent...

    If you weren’t on board with Monster Hunter World already, I need to ask you to put aside your fanboyism and actually consider the game for what it is- a fantastic looking full next generation realization of the Monster Hunter formula. And if you’re not convinced already, then maybe this new video for the game, with off screen footage captured at SDCC 2017, will be the thing that finally brings you on board.

    The footage shows us various weapons in the game, and how they feature...

  • UK Charts: Splatoon 2 Debuts in Second, Crash Bandicoot Scores Again
    Bald Bouncer
    Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 had a fairly strong start in the UK as per the latest charts from Gfk Chart-Track. It wasn’t enough to counter the onslaught of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy which saw its sales rise by 60 percent to claim another yet another week at number 1. This means it has as many weeks in the UK no. 1 position as The Last of Us: Remastered.

    Still, Splatoon 2 managed to earn second place with Grand Theft Auto 5 in third. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe saw a 60 percent uptick...

  • Ghost Recon Wildlands Is Getting PvP This Fall
    Bald Bouncer
    Most people on dedicated gaming communities hate the game, and most critics barely acknowledged it- but the most successful game of the year so far has been Ghost Recon: Wildlands, which Ubisoft released in March this year, and which remains the highest selling title worldwide of this year so far. I suppose the allure of a fully co-op GTA style game is too much to resist for the masses.

    Now, Ubisoft will add to the game’s appeal, by adding a Call of Duty like appeal to it,...

  • Destiny 2 is “A Hard Reset” That Activision “Really Debated”

    Over the past few days, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg has talked about how Destiny 2, Bungie’s sequel to the hugely successful shared world shooter, will have more frequent content updates. However, even the very nature of the sequel being a reset is something that both parties are fervently pursuing.

    Speaking to Games Industry Biz, Hirshberg said, “Destiny 2 is a sequel, a hard reset, and that choice was not a casual decision. It was something we really debated, because if you are in a persistent universe, then obviously people’s investment continues to have value in perpetuity. However, it can also become intimidating for new players to join.

    “If you have an annual reset like we do with Call of Duty, you run the risk of people not coming back because that investment didn’t carry over to the new game. But certainly the annual release has been a big contributor to what has kept it fresh for so long. We have been able to bring in new ideas in a way that I don’t think we would have been able to do if we were still building on a persistent universe that started 10 years ago.”

    Whether this same winning formula pans out for Destiny or not remains to be seen though. “So what we’ve found is that there is more than one good way to do it. We have a winning formula on Call of Duty. It is too early to tell, but having Destiny 1, followed by three years of expansions, and then hopefully Destiny 2 doing even better, will mean we have another winning formula.”

    Destiny 2’s changes have enthralled and angered fans in equal measure from the new Lost Sectors and classes to the lack of random rolls on weapons and profile progress carrying over (except for one’s appearance). We’ll see the results for ourselves when Destiny 2 releases on Xbox One and PS4 on September 6th while the PC version arrives on October 24th.
