Destiny 2’s Revelry event celebrates spring and trashes PvP

Spring has sprung across the ruins of humanity's future, and those good-time Guardians of The Last City are celebrating the only way they know how: hanging decorations, goofing off, collecting big guns, touching any weird stuff they think might give them special powers, and shooting monsters in exchange for prizes. Destiny 2 last night launched its new spring event, The Revelry, sending players on an…

World War Z out now with L4D-ish zomboshooting

What if Left 4 Dead had a third-person camera, was slightly less fantastical, had less charm and character, and was based on a license years past cultural relevance? It might look a bit like World War Z, a cooperative zomboshooter launched this morning based on the 2013 Brad Pitt movie (not the original 2006 book). That's a bit of a damning summation from me but…

The Video Game Soda Machine Project hits 3000 entries

As we all know, there are four metrics by which to assess video games: Graphics ✰✰✰✰✰ Gameplay ✰✰✰✰✰ Replayability ✰✰✰✰✰ Fictional brands ✰✰✰✰✰ The fatal flaw of modern 'subjective' criticism is that the last one so often gets overlooked. What I most want to know about is a game's fictional brands created to dodge trademark infringement and slip in a few daft or crude jokes.…

Remnant From The Ashes ends the world in August

Gunfire Games, the makers of Darksiders III, will return once more to the end of the world in August with Remnant: From The Ashes. I suppose surviving the collapse of THQ, as Gunfire founding members did after Vigil Games went down with THQ, could give you a bit of an doomy mindset. This time, we're not gods or avatars of universal forces as much as…

Destiny 2’s Arc Week brought an exclusive shock

Bungie last night kicked off Destiny 2's 'Arc Week', which is mostly fancy theming around a balance patch addressing underpowered electrical abilities and pointlessly rare drops. It also brought an actual surprise: players were getting Wavesplitter, a top-notch weapon that has so far been exclusive to PlayStation 4.
