The Division 2 Private Beta impressions, more

If you follow me on Twitter, this may surprise you but I absolutely loved The Division 2 Private Beta. The sequel keeps the same tight, cover-based action from the original and adds some intriguing new ideas to The Divison’s existing formula. Ubisoft have announced that the private beta will be followed by a public beta and also that a free game will be offered as an incentive for pre-orderi...[Read More]

Anthem Public Beta Impressions

The Anthem public beta demo was this weekend and my initial thoughts are “Ok, what if Dragon Age, but in space?” If someone had told me this was set in the same extended universe as Dragon Age but set 10,000 years in the future, I would believe it. Everything feels like a BioWare game, but unfortunately more Dragon Age 2 than Dragon Age Origins. There’s a central hub. There’...[Read More]

Shiny Psyduck Confirmed for Pokemon Go

Good morning, Shiny Psyduck. Nice to see you there. As part of Pokemon Go’s Safari Zone event in Brazil this weekend, Psyduck will be appearing more frequently. A lot more frequently. They’re all over the place. My neighborhood is practically lousy with Psyduck. Also! Shiny Psyduck has been released, and until 11:59 pm on Sunday, January 27, your chances of encountering one are greatly...[Read More]

Anthem Demo Starts Soon On PC, Consoles

Anthem is almost here! EA’s attempt at a Destiny clone launches February 22. Will they screw it up by ham-handedly monetizing every aspect? Almost assuredly. In the meantime, EA has announced a demo period so everyone can try out Anthem before the launch. There will be two demo periods. Each will last just one weekend. The VIP demo period starts at 9 am PST on Friday, January 25, and ends Mo...[Read More]

Trainers will have an increased chance at a shiny Swinub on that date.

Fallout 76 BETA Impressions: War Finally Changes

I went into the Fallout 76 BETA with lowered expectations. Sure, it’s Fallout (yay). But it’s also a survival (ew) MMO (gross). How could Bethesda hope to marry a zany, deeply personal single-player RPG with a persistent MMO world devoid of NPCs and potentially filled with trolls? Early reports were not promising. And as I started my first session, I felt my fears coming true. My peace...[Read More]

Wolfenstein Youngblood Announced

Of all the games that I thought might get a sequel announcement at E3 2018, Wolfenstein was not one of them. Bethesda is always full of surprises. MachineGames is releasing Wolfenstein Youngblood sometime next year. BJ Blazkowicz’s daughters star as the main character in an alternate-history version of 1980s Paris. Wolfenstein The New Colossus was just released last year to great fanfare. I&...[Read More]
