Dauntless Alpha Impressions | A behemoth undertaking

The following statement may be sacrilege to some, but over the last few years I’ve had great fun doing co-op Dark Souls. While there’s a sense of achievement going it alone, I really believe there’s nothing quite like sharing the experience with a friend. Be it the exhilaration of defeating …

Destiny 2 PC Beta Impressions | Light at the end of the tunnel?

Despite its flaws and missed potential, I did enjoy Destiny. For two years, it was my go-to game on the PS4 thanks to its drop-in nature, excellent gun play, and loot-based progression. Yes, the story was awful (aside from The Taken King where they remembered they had Nathan Fillion’s voice …

Sniper Elite 4 Hands-on Preview | War journal of a terrible sniper

I have a weird relationship with the Sniper Elite series. On one hand, I love how you can plan your attacks and watch the gory aftermath with the X-ray kill cam. On the other hand, I hate how absolutely awful I am at it when I’m discovered and the enemy …

Developers Martin Ziegler and Tobias Stolz-Zwilling from Warhorse Studios were on hand to answer my questions about the demonstration, show me what they’ve been able to accomplish so far, and give some insight …

Black Desert Online Beta Wrap-up | The good, the bad, and the money

The long wait for the western release of Black Desert Online is nearly over. For many gamers, the launch date of March 3rd couldn’t come soon enough, especially after doing so well in both the Korean and Russian markets. I only got to see a small section of the game …

Tom Clancy’s The Division Open Beta Impressions | Live together, die alone

This afternoon Ubisoft announced that over 6 million players logged into The Division Open Beta over the weekend. With those kind of numbers, it has certainly been a successful stress test / sampler for the upcoming online RPG shooter. While it was (mostly) the same content from the Closed Beta, …
