Overwatch’s Jeff Kaplan Shuts Down Troll in Forum Post

One of the greatest things about Blizzard’s latest first-person shooter Overwatch is the care and devotion that the game’s developers clearly have for the title. Game director Jeff Kaplan himself often personally takes to the online forums in order to inform fans, share a laugh, or in a more recent instance, shut down a troll. Addressing the user directly, Jeff replied:“We play the game a lot. It’s no surprise that the forum responded with such support to Kaplan though, as Jeff is something of a

Playing Skull & Bones felt like Burnout as much as Black Flag, which I am on board with

Which means no Black Flag 2. The Burnout comparison also gets slightly ridiculous when you consider that manipulating wind is more of a thing in Skull & Bones than it was in Black Flag. But unlike Black Flag, you don’t get to swing across as the skipper and start putting yourself about with a cutlass. Right now Skulls & Bones feels like a relatively amusing diversion, rather than the spiritual successor to Black Flag I really want. Splicing those two wildly disparate genres was what made Black F

Why Volition Made Agents of Mayhem Instead of a New Saints Row

Although Saints Row the franchise lasted for four entries (and one spin-off), it felt like the series really only came into its own with Saints Row The Third. While playing Agents of Mayhem at E3 2017, we couldn’t help but ask why Volition chose to make this game and not a new Saints Row. After all, Saints Row had become a really strong brand for Volition and publisher Deep Silver (who acquired the property following THQ’s bankruptcy auction). As it turns out, the answer says more about Deep Sil

Rakka is the first Neill Blomkamp film to hit Steam

The first of Neill Blomkamp's promised experimental short films has just released on Steam, and while I haven't had the chance to actually watch it yet, the screenshots are very cool. Dubbed Rakka, the film is "the story of broken humanity following the invasion of a technologically superior alien species." "Bleak harrowing and unrelenting, the humans we meet must find enough courage to go on fighting," the description reads. The free 22 minute film can be streamed for free over on Steam, but as

7 things we learned about God of War at E3 2017: Father/son co-operation, original trilogy links, and the Zelda factor

2018’s God of War is one of the most exciting, yet most question-raising, elements of the upcoming PlayStation slate. Kratos’ son doesn’t need baby-sitting. He unambiguously stated a dislike of video game baby-sitting during my demo, and made it very clear that Atreus, Kratos’ son, will never be a burden. Kratos’ origins will not be forgottenGreek urns appear in today’s God of War demo. Consider how that scene would have played out in any previous God of War game.

Call of Duty WWII’s mechanics both help and hinder its emotional impact

As I sat down in my seat to start my Call of Duty WWII multiplayer demo at E3, I looked at everyone around me nervously. I haven't played a Call of Duty game in a few years and I hadn’t played Call of Duty WWII before today at all, yet it didn’t feel unfamiliar to me. But I worry that the game's need to ultimately still be a Call of Duty game might completely undermine their noble intentions. In Call of Duty WWII, squad abilities have replaced mechanics such as auto-regeneration. I can see and u

E3 2017: Knack is Back with Knack 2 and a Release Date

The existence of Knack 2 has been known for about a year now, being shown at E3 2016, and one year later, we actually get a release date. Knack 2 is an evolution of the first game where the developers focus even more on adding variety to the gameplay. In addition to combat, Knack 2 has a puzzle gameplay, platforming and whatever genre you would fit tank driving into. But for those who don't want to schedule a playdate simply for a sit-down gaming session, co-op works as drop-in/drop-out. The bes

Coco will be playable in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

With the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy just weeks away, Activision has announced that gamers will be able to swap between playing as Crash or his sister Coco on the fly. The news was announced in a new trailer that released earlier today, which you can check out below. The differences between Crash and Coco won't be purely cosmetic either as Coco will come with her own set of special attacks for defeating enemies. While Crash is known for his Body Slam, Coco will have a Double Leg D
