Review: Judgment (PS4)

The same, but different.

Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgment. Make no mistake about...
 

EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

In fact,...

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

Another Tripwire published title revealed as an EGS timed-exclusive.

The Chivalry series is making a comeback at what could be a very interesting time. Despite fierce competition from Mordhau, Torn Banner Studios announced that they are working on Chivalry 2. It will once again be a multiplayer first-person "slasher" set in medieval battlefields. The game, published by Tripwire Interactive, is targeting a 2020 release on the Epic Games Store.

  • Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Incredible from start to finish.

    Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

    There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale, but I will spare you from...

    David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    Accusations include a wet-willy and aggressive shoving.

    One week ago, the dispute between Gearbox's Randy Pitchford and former Gearbox employee David Eddings went public in a hurry. It seemed as though this was largely over a pay dispute between the two parties but, as with most things involving Randy Pitchford, there's a bit more to it than that.

    Eddings has claimed, on more than one occasion now, that Randy Pitchford physically assaulted him. These allegations really came to light a few days ago when Eddings posted the following series of tweets. He mentions how he...

  • Two-Day Fortnite Summer Block Party 2019 Event Announced

    Two-Day Fortnite Summer Block Party 2019 Event Announced

    You can meet other Fortnite players. Yay?

    Epic Games announced the Fortnite Summer Block Party today. This two-day event will have Fortnite fans coming together to meet various "celebrities" and to meet up with other Fortnite fans. Is that something Fortnite players want to do? PvP games aren't exactly known for having tight-knit communities.

    But alas, here we are.

    If nothing else, event goers will get to see and maybe even get within 20 feet of people like Ninja, Brendon Urie of Taylor Swift's new ME! video (and Panic! at the Disco), Dillon Francis,...

  • Ubisoft Announces Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Ubisoft Announces Ghost Recon Breakpoint

    Looks like the leak, along with Jon Bernthal, was true.

    Yesterday, a little leak revealed that the next Ghost Recon game was going to be called Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Today, Ubisoft announced the name of their next Ghost Recon game. It's called Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Surprise!

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be released on October 4 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. I'm assuming the PC release will be done through Uplay and the Epic Games Store only.

    It also apparently confirms that the guy from the latest Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC that looks like Jon...
