I’m a huge fan of the Rock Band series and when Rock Band 4 was announced for this generation of consoles, I was screaming like a schoolgirl. Almost all of the tracks for the previous games and DLC would be available and wouldn’t have to be repurchased – which amazed me since I’ve thrown around $600 towards DLC songs. I’m really not kidding either. I blindly purchased the full band kit and came home to find a key staple of the game missing – ONLINE MULTIPLAYER!  So yes, while the game actually launched on 6 October, 2015, it’s not until nearly a … Read More »

Anyone who has played Tom Clancy’s The Division from the start will know it’s been a heck of a roller coaster ride through periods of unbalanced gameplay and glitches – insert Ubisoft jokes here.  The core mechanics of the game itself are some of the most fun I’ve had in a game.  I did however take a long break during version 1.3 until update 1.4 came out. For those unfamiliar with the lifespan of The Division, when the game was updated to version 1.3 rewards were not progressive to help players move on to the next harder difficulty or challenge. … Read More »

Look, we get it. You’re one of the cool kids. You’ll drop something before it becomes uncool just in case anyone even hints that you, too, might be uncool. You got back into high-tops before anyone else, you decided it’s okay to not like fro-yo, and you were the first kid on the street to microwave your Furby. You’re a trendsetter. But, you know what’s not cool? What just makes you look like the petty, entitled, smug fool that you are? “Does anyone still play that…” whenever anyone mentions the game that you no longer play because you don’t want … Read More »

Two weeks ago guardians welcomed back the Festival of the Lost to Destiny.  Festival of the Lost is fun live event created by Bungie for all to celebrate a Halloween like festival which guardians can wear masks of other characters while partaking in quests.  It’s a simple event but last year’s festival was a lot of fun giving players a reason to grind for cosmetic items.  Again this year the items are cosmetic but the event really failed in the eyes of the community.  Festival of the Lost this year is plagued with microtransactions while taking away reason to play … Read More »

I was one of the biggest fans of Tom Clancy’s The Division from the start.  Starting with the beta and all the way to current day, I’ve always wanted this game to save me from my Destiny addiction.  Through its life however, The Division has had it’s issues through glitches/exploits and gameplay balancing but overall the bones of the game are strong.  With the recent patch 1.4, all this was supposed to be fixed and it truly is.  However though, the game experience is very broken and unfortunately there is nothing that Massive can do to fix it. The other night … Read More »

So Rise of Iron is almost 2 weeks old but thanks to long periods of content droughts guardians are already wondering what will be next.  We would like to take some time and look at the hints that have been dropped in Rise of Iron and even previous DLC’s to see where the Destiny storyline will take us next. Rise of Iron introduced to the SIVA plague that the Fallen House of Devils and their splicers harnessed and used to transform themselves into a high tech race of Fallen.  After defeating their leader and cutting off the SIVA source, SIVA … Read More »

You ever played an old game that you thought was too ahead of its time for the technology available? What if we could take previous games and juice them up a little bit? Keep the core gameplay but turn the dial up to 11… Here are some examples of games and the improvements we’d make that we’ve come up with. State of Emergency Riots are fun. At least, they are in games. Lots of independent NPCs interacting with large environments to create chaos. That was the vision for the PS2/Xbox game State of Emergency. Unfortunately, the NPCs were mostly headless … Read More »

If you’ve been a gamer long enough, we’ve all had that dream.  Sitting and playing your favorite game and getting paid to do it.  Who wouldn’t want to get paid a great wage for doing what they love?  I’ve grown up under the mindset of “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”  If you get a job doing something you love – it’ll never feel like work.  We can’t all be so lucky but gamers all over the world have had their eyes opened wide thanks to the growing popularity of eSports.  Thanks … Read More »

Back in October 2009, Gearbox gave the world its vision of a RPG style first person shooter that gave us all an original IP in a style never seen.  Borderlands gave fans of multiple genres a way to spend 1,000’s of hours of our lives in the world of Pandora and it’s millions of weapons and loot.  Borderlands over the next couple years has been followed up with a sequel – as well as a pre-sequel.  With Borderlands: The Pre-sequel being the most recent but also least enjoyed game in the series, fans have been getting eager hoping for Borderlands 3. … Read More »
