The Best Games of E3 2017

E3 2017 has come and gone and with it an abundance of announcements. In this video Will goes over some of his favorite announcements from the show. While we mostly knew what to expect, there did wind up being a few surprises here and there. Shadow of the Colossus remake and Beyond Good and Evil 2 caught most people by surprise. Als Mario and Rabbids? Who figured that would actually be awesome? But everything else was pretty much expected. God of War, Crackdown 3, Days Gone, Horizon DLC, Call of…

Battleborn Multiplayer Is Free To Play

Battleborn Multiplayer Is Free To Play

It took a little longer than expected, but semi-popular hero shooter & MOBA Battleborn has officially released its multiplayer mode free to the public. Battleborn originally released in May of 2016, the same month and year as popular hero shooter Overwatch, which in direct comparison already has tens of millions of players compared to Battleborn’s player base which is somewhere in the low thousands. Will you give Battleborn a chance?

Nerdo News – Episode 4 – Gamestop, Pokémon’s Anniversary, and Amber Rose! [02/01/2016]

Star Wars: Battlefront Real Life Mod In Action

Star Wars: Battlefront Real Life Mod In Action

Star Wars: Battlefront is an online multiplayer shooter that currently holds a metacritic score of 72 on PC from critics and a measly 3.2 from users. Still, there is a very active user base and people are obviously still playing the game, at least for its beauty. It’s been some time that a game has been touted for its “realistic” graphics, and Battlefront currently holds the crown for “most realistic ‘looking’ game.” That’s not a real statistic, as there aren’t scientific polls to back up the claim, but I certainly agree!…

Star Wars: Battlefront Realism Mod

Star Wars: Battlefront Realism Mod

PC users often pride themselves in having definitive editions of games. For example, right now Fallout 4 is arguably a much better experience on the PC platform because of its ability to activate “console” commands, adding hours of weird and unexpected fun. There are also premium user created modifications available for download that enhance user experiences and cater to specific needs, like text mods that display better on certain monitors. Even understanding the information above, I admit I’m surprised PC gamers will soon be able to use a “realism” mod that makes…

Fallout 4 Launch Trailer Releases – Adults Only

Fallout 4 Launch Trailer Releases – Adults Only

The official Fallout 4 launch trailer released today on behalf of Bethesda Softworks on YouTube. The video in its current state isn’t accessible by everyone without a YouTube account though, in a strange move made by the powers at be. We hope that the trailer lifts its security blanket so that everyone can enjoy it sooner than later. In the Film and TV world, the trailer might be considered “Red Band,” and would be titled that way. Trailer below. EDIT: By clicking the trailer below, viewers may  find they are…

Nintendo Goes Mobile, Theater and Theme Park

Nintendo Goes Mobile, Theater and Theme Park

Nintendo announced a list of new ways to market themselves in the near future. Among the list of goals, applications for mobile and PC are causing the biggest noise. One of the first announcements isn’t much of a new practice, even for Nintendo. Players can purchase Nintendo software through a variety of platforms including mobile and PC. There’s a new “points system” replacing the 2015 “end-of-life’d” model. The refreshed system rewards consumers with points for buying and playing software which are later spent on goodies. Points may also be earned through using Nintendo software on non-Nintendo…

Titanfall Celebrates 10 Million Players

Titanfall Celebrates 10 Million Players

X-Box/Origin exclusive Titanfall, made by Respawn Entertainment, has reached a new milestone. The software has garnered ten–million users. The news comes as a huge deal, considering the game released on a console that didn’t sell well at first, and on Origin, which has a smaller populous than Steam. Some of those crying against exclusivity could moan “See, that’s why you should have released it on another platform.” Those few people would be wrong for putting it so bluntly. Exclusivity may hurt hobbyists fortunate enough to own only one piece of hardware, but those same people aren’t considering that exclusive…

The UK Understands Games Need Refunds

The UK Understands Games Need Refunds

For the past few years, developers and publishers have been releasing video games that are broken or shipping without advertised features. In every situation, retailers and publishers alike have been known to tell consumers that all sales are final. Distressed players are then stuck with a game they paid for in full that isn’t in working condition. Not one other industry allows these shady business practices. If you’re a citizen of the UK, then you’re in luck. According to The Consumer Rights Act 2015, people will be able to return or…

Customer Receives Drenched Fallout: Anthology

Customer Receives Drenched Fallout: Anthology

User VampKittin on imgur shared real pictures of a destroyed Fallout: Anthology shipment. The claim is that UPS sent the brand new product completely damaged and soaked, as if dunked in a body of water. It doesn’t seem any company has owned the responsibility yet. The picture below displays the items that are supposed to be included in the package. There’s even room for Fallout 4, for when it releases. Here’s what VampKittin received. The user’s response to all of this? “When I posted this I was simply sharing my misfortune as the…
