Ten minutes of soothing grappling is exactly what you need right now

Oh, to see the sky like Mokeysniper. He's a YouTuber I've mentioned before, whose claim to fame is being really really good at grapple hooks. I'm reminding you about him because a few days ago he uploaded a ten-minute compilation of fabulous swinging in Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, complete with sublime transitions between the two. It's his goodbye to 2019.

Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

EA is buying Titanfall creators Respawn

The earth-encrusted behemoth known as EA is buying robot-befriending studio Respawn Entertainment for as much as $455 million. The publisher is going to pay $315 million in stock and cash, and a further $140 million if the Titanfall creators hit their “incentive targets” - in other words, if the games they’re currently working on get an aesthetically pleasant arbitrary number on Metacritic when they're released.…

Titanfall 2’s War Games update adds new maps

Titanfall 2’s [official site] pilots need to be light on their feet, what with all the parkour, so it makes sense that they wouldn’t want to lug around lots of heavy weapons. But surely in the distant future humanity will discover a way to solve this problem? And it looks like they have, as the War Games update, along with introducing new maps and bunch…

Terrific Titanfall 2 is £25 on Amazon UK

Twenty five quid! Just three weeks ago, at launch, Titanfall 2 [official site] was twice the price on Origin. I'm always wary of telling people whether I think a game offers "value for money" because the value of forty quid is entirely relative to how many quids - or cash of another currency - a person has. When I reviewed Titanfall 2 I did mention…

Titanfall 2 Timing Tosh: EA Explain Eccentric Intent

Adam's review of Titanfall 2 [official site] praised Respawn's mechtastic FPS but he did worry the game might end up overlooked. Titanfall 2 launched at a very busy time for faceshooting, see: one week after Battlefield 1, one week before Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Given that Titanfall has solved some of the issues that stopped the first game from taking off--it has a singleplayer…

Origin Lifting Sanction-Fuelled Block Against Myanmar

I get it: keeping up with news is bor-ing. It's all, "This person said this, the other person said that" with only brief joy in "this skateboarding otter saved that family from a fire" before plunging back into "our country invaded that country, this policy is doing that" and it's like ugh, I'll wait until Hollywood make movies out of the exciting bits, thanks. So…

Stomp stomp bompity bomp bomp, goes the big robot. Titanfall 2 [official site] launched overnight, bringing more FPS antics with parkouring soldiers and honking great mechs armed with megaguns and power swords.
