World War One First Person Shooter Verdun is Coming to the Xbox One and Playstation 4

World War One, by all accounts I’ve heard, would be the closest thing to “Hell on Earth” that has ever happened in human history. In many ways, it was the first true “modern” war, and in an equal number of ways was the last “traditional” war. The Verdun video game is based on the events …

Why I’m Not Excited For Virtual Reality

Remember back around 2009, when 3D movies became a big thing? Avatar, a generic Sci-Fi film that was basically the story of Pocahontas set on an alien plant, became the highest grossing film of all time (more on that in another article, maybe) and for what reason? It was the leader of the 3D film …

Who Won E3? The Answer May Surprise You!

Hey, look, a click bait title! No, I haven’t sold out, I’ve got a point in this, which will (hopefully) make sense as you read. E3 2016 is over, and I, like so many other gamers, are looking over the fallout of it, as we do every year, to see what to make of the …

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Gameplay Trailer

Another standard E3 event this year was the first gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a game that you would think would be the highlight of the upcoming gaming season that instead is being treated like the worst thing ever. Why though? Why are people hating on Infinite Warfare? Because it’s too futurist? …

First Look at Titanfall 2 Single Player and Multiplayer Trailers

Make no mistake about it, I genuinely enjoy Titanfall. I’m a fan of mechs as is, and to have a FPS that is mech based was a great idea. Titanfall had massive hype, but sad to say, to the masses, it didn’t deliver. While being multiplayer only, usually a bane to my enjoyment of a …

First Look At Watch Dogs 2

In 2014, Ubisoft released their highly anticipated hacking-centric open world shooter “Watch Dogs”, and it was met with mixed emotions. Many players loved the unique gameplay element of hacking into various electronics, and felt the city of Chicago was captured well, but criticized the driving controls, some story and character elements and most of all, …

Xbox One S

What better to start my E3 2016 posts with than what is probably the most major “ready to go” product announcement this year: the new, slimline Xbox One. I make no effort to hide that I am an Xbox fan now. Oddly, it was the Xbox One that made me want to try Microsoft’s hardware, …

As E3 Keeps Moving Along, My Plans for Covering All The News

E3 2016 has already been quite a bit of excitement, with announcements we all expected combined with some that are coming totally out of left field. So far I haven’t written much of anything about it simply due to me waiting for the bulk of the announcements I would care about (namely Sony and Microsoft) …
