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.

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

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

  • WBIE Offering Full Refunds on Batman: Arkham Knight PC Until the End of the Year

    Batman: Arkham Knight is still a near complete mess for many PC players. Even after months of being pulled so that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady could fix the initial launch woes, the past week's re-release seems to be as bad, if not worse, than it was before. As such, WBIE has issued a statement saying that those who purchased the game on PC can get a full refund on the game up through the end of the year.
    We are very sorry that many our customers continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. We worked hard to get the game to live up to the standard you deserve but understand that many of you are still experiencing

  • Following Backlash 343 Might Bring Back Splitscreen in Halo 6

    Following Backlash 343 Might Bring Back Splitscreen in Halo 6

    Following the massive blowback from the Halo community about a lack of splitscreen in Halo 5, 343 Industries may attempt to bring it back for Halo 6. Frank O'Connor made the follow remarks following the community's widespread complaints.
    "Splitscreen is fun for me too. It's not something that I object to, and we would've loved to put it in. We'll talk about it for the next game, and we'll talk about it for the future."

    Splitscreen was reportedly not a part of Halo 5 because it would not have allowed the game to run at a steady 60FPS.
