Battlefield 5 multiplayer returns victorious to the battlefields of WW2

Battlefield 5 multiplayer
We returned to the battlefields of WW2 with the game that brings the franchise home – Battlefield 5. Many applauded DICE for continuing the great success of Battlefield 1, but some fans were infuriated by a few of the changes. Let us rise above any controversy, and judge the closed beta gameplay trailer from Gamescom 2018, which features the Rotterdam map,...

Anthem Gamescom gameplay is a lot more natural than what we saw at E3

Anthem Gamescom 2018
Anthem is one of the more anticipated titles coming to Gamescom 2018, and while we didn't get to experience it hands on, I was lucky enough to have been able to watch live gameplay. In many ways, the game looks different and a lot more down-to-earth when you watch live gameplay. The Anthem Gamescom demo was the same one we...

Sea of Solitude is a beautiful tale about loneliness and the monsters it creates

Sea of Solitude
Sea of Solitude is a beautiful indie game about loneliness, melancholy, and a giant fish-bird. It is developed by the Berlin-based Jo-Mei Games and was picked up by EA in 2015. Since then we haven't seen or heard much about the game. Until now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWY76dNvXyo EA has revealed a new trailer for the game during their EA Play 2018 event, just prior...

A Way Out is not the future of couch co-op

A Way Out review
I think we all can agree that playing games with your friends is fun. Whether you’re enjoying some vehicular mayhem in Rocket League, or awkwardly groping each other in Gang Beasts or Genital Jousting, the couch is a great place to play video games together. But party games and weird brawlers don’t hold complete dominion over your furniture. A Way Out hopes...

Fe review: Singing in the woods

Fe review
Fun, original platforming and puzzles, wrapped in a great soundtrack and beautiful aesthetics make Fe an instant indie classic. Fe was one of the games I was most excited about when visiting Gamescom 2017, where the indie adventure game was introduced to me by lead producer, Hugo Bille. In his presentation, Bille explained how growing up in Sweden, he and many others...

A Way Out lets you play online co-op with only one copy

A Way Out online co-op
If you want to play A Way Out with a friend (and let's face it, it's the only way to play), you won't have to buy 2 copies of the game. I know what you're thinking - "it's called local co-op, duh..." True, you can always play together on the same machine, but even online co-op players don't have to buy...

Star Wars Battlefront 2 review: Hero of the galaxy

With beautiful graphics and nonstop action, Star Wars Battlefront 2 delivers a distinct movie feel with no microtransactions (for now). I'm running to the entrance of the hallway - the clone troopers are already there on the other side. Five droids are standing at the entrance of the hallway, waiting for someone to break through. I charge up my shield...

Star Wars Battlefront 2 temporarily suspends all in-game purchases

Star Wars Battlefront 2
Star Wars Battlefront 2 fans took to the internet to protest the game's focus of unfair in-game payment, or microtransations. And it seems to be working. Just a few days after lowering the bar for unlocking the most popular Star Wars heroes, EA has decided to suspend all in-game purchases. In the official statement regarding this step, Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager at DICE,...

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Darth Vader
Your voice has been heard! EA has announced it's reducing the cost of unlocking some of the more popular Star Wars Battlefront 2 heroes by a whooping 75 percent. This announcement came, no doubt, after a massive gamer backlash at the high costs of unlocking heroes like Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Battlefront 2. Probably because the company's...
