Right there with Zack on the notion that it should be a live service game. Campaign expansions sound... fine? But what it really needs is more variety: more map variety, more enemy variety, more gameplay variety - maybe even a new class or two, down the line. All of which seem more likely to come out of a live-service Read more

I would add, as a person who is generally mediocre to bad at games, play the game at the highest world tier you can for as long as you can, then turn it back down to normal when you feel like you’ve hit a wall. I played until world tier 6, which allows you to upgrade weapons up to three levels higher than your Read more

I don’t pretend to understand most of the endgame patch stuff - I only just got to the endgame myself - but man, I gotta say ( in relation to the earlier ‘can’t choose between classes’ article), what I’d really like to see is some form of resource sharing between all four classes. Make me level them independently, Read more

Really wish it just had a offline mode for people who play single player, been said numerous times it is not a live service game but I dunno its online component seems a big part of the game and I suspect it will get updates regular based on what i saw with the demo and perhaps events to.

There’s no reason to staff/server/etc. all the way up so that you can handle the big spike of people on the first day. Read more

Have we already forgotten that NIN did the entire soundtrack for QUAKE?

Most of the music for Brütal Legend was licensed, but Lita Ford did do an original song for the game, and it’s a headbanger.

For what it’s worth, this is pretty much the entire series in a nutshell, besides some really obscure games that nobody ever cared about. And the games that didn’t hold up that well are replaced by cinematics. It’s actually a pretty good deal. Read more

Videos are the path of least resistance here, but your best bet is to find a buddy to play with who’s more familiar with the series. The tutorials are thorough enough, but in practice there’s too much to read at once to really grasp things. Monster Hunter is really a community game.

An important thing to know is that multiplayer missions are scaled up in difficulty. I’m not sure about this but I *feel* like even the single player variants of the hub mission monsters are stronger than their village comparisons. Read more

Just set up ramps and boosts and fly the other cargo ships over it like in HYDRO THUNDER

Hades is a once-in-a-generation gem. If I could wipe my memory to play it all over again from scratch to experience it again, I would. Well deserved!

Word of warning. I’ve been in Alpha, and then Alpha skip ahead since those rings launched. If you are invited, make sure that you understand that you are truly in for bugs that will affect your experience using the Xbox. You might lose audio for days, or not be able to use your favorite app. Also make sure you have a Read more

My daughter took her first steps while I was playing Capture the Flag on Colossus on Halo 2. I thought my teammates were cheering for me because I was so excited, but then I found out that they were really screaming at me because I didn’t stop the flag carrier and the other team won.

I was berated by a person with the Read more

The character of Clint was well done, the story however is so short and under developed you would think they barely put any effort to it.

You might know Hawkeye as the Avenger with the bow, or the one without any superpowers, or the one who skipped a whole movie and no one really noticed (or cared).

He’s an evil Hulk from Earth-9200, which is a post-apocalyptic alternate future timeline caused by nuclear war. Maestro rules the city state of Dystopia, which was built from the remains of New York City, with the help of his
