Typically people play games in two different ways. There are those that like to power through a single player campaign as quickly as possible and get to the climax of a story and then there are those that spend their time checking every little crevice for secrets, more ammo, or even maybe a side quest that helps enhance the overall experience. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is definitely for those of the latter of the two.  It is a game that allows players to explore in a somewhat open-world the paranormal activity of a small town known as Red Creek … Read More »

I’m a huge Destiny fan.  Let’s be honest though.  The long term enjoyment Destiny 2 has been very mediocre.  We all though that Curse of Osiris would help remedy that but all it did was give us a short story, strikes that just reuse story missions, and it’s only saving grace was a great raid addition.  The biggest pain though was that all the endgame content and events were locked behind a paywall so those who didn’t purchase the DLC, really lost content. Bungie announced last week they were making that change to give seasonal content to all and as … Read More »

Everybody likes a good scare. The thrilling feeling emotion of a jump scare without having your life actually at risk gets the blood flowing and causes the unique feeling for players. Dynamic Pixels has attempted to do just that with Hello Neighbor inviting players to be a small child being hunted down by a creepy neighbour that you’ve decided to break in the house of. However, with the look of a childrens cartoon and no real suspense build up, Hello Neighbor falls short of what it ultimately wants to achieve. Being a small nameless child, you witness a neighbour up to some suspicious acts … Read More »

Let’s be honest, Curse of Osiris for Destiny 2 wasn’t that great.  Mercury was beautiful and the raid lair was amazing but both of the new strikes are just repeats of the story missions and the story did nothing to really develop characters or really make you feel an real emotion on the security of Earth. With that though The Dawning is live and data miners have had a look through the update and we may have some good info on what the next expansion may bring us.  Let’s also remember that these leaks are just speculation without any confirmation … Read More »

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has sold a ton in it’s early access phase on Xbox One but has suffered from a ton of issues from not being optimized for the home console as frame rates dip even below 20 FPS at times.  This typically has only happened in the early moments of each game but still can hurt the overall experience. The good news is that the Xbox One X version performs slightly better, with improved textures and draw distances.  Microsoft previously reminded fans that Xbox Game Preview releases are a work-in-progress.  Microsoft had this to say about the issues players have … Read More »
