  • 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 Crucible Design Lead Was “Never Happy” With PvP, Talks Destiny 2 Changes

    Bungie’s Lars Bakken hasn’t had the most enviable job in the past few years. As the Crucible design lead, he’s been responsible for numerous changes in Destiny’s PvP modes, buffing and nerfing weapons as seen fit. As such he’s had to deal with a lot of flak over the years but with Destiny 2 on the horizon and so many changes being made to Crucible, why would Bungie choose to revamp PvP entirely?

    Bakken spoke to DailyStar UK about this and said, “There’s a lot of people that internally were like ‘why would you change this thing that people obviously enjoy’ and the answer is it’s not as good as it could have been. The answer is even though we created something that you know millions of people loved, I was never happy with what we created and I always wanted to make something better and so it was easy for us to talk about how can we make this better.

    “Like, how can we make this for people who really enjoy PVP, because I think with Destiny 1 we talked about it in a way where it was important for everyone who wanted to play anything, it was like come on in, let’s give everyone a big hug. That felt good in some ways, but it also caused some strange problems, long form problems that we didn’t necessarily see until later after the game had been out. And we wanted to try and tackle some of those things and like rethink from first principles like how do we want the crucible to work in Destiny 2.”

    As for concerns about this community-oriented game that will only support 4 players per team in Crucible – which can be an issue when you’ve built a standard 6 person fireteam over the years – Bakken said that, “It’s absolutely a concern, but when you need to make a change, sometimes there are bones that needed to be broken and that can be painful but if it’s the best thing for the experience sometimes you have to do that in order to give the game a focus and the necessity of what is going to give players the best possible experience.

    “We’ve created it for eight players, that is our target and it allows us to do this really great thing as developers to say hey every map or mode we create, we know the target number of players. We don’t have to have a variety of experiences that this thing has to support, it is laser focused on being the best thing it can be with four Vs four.”

    Destiny 2’s open beta will actually go live on July 18th, 10 AM PST for those who pre-ordered on PlayStation 4. Xbox One users join on July 19th while the open beta is available for all on July 21st.
