Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC weekend open beta now preloading

You are cordially invited to click on faces until they burst in a shower of blood this weekend in the open beta test for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, which officially starts tomorrow (or today for narcs who pre-order) and has already started pre-loading. The beta packs six modes and six maps. The cooperative Zombies mode isn't in this beta and nor's the new…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC open beta coming in August

We'll get to try the near-future face-shooting of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 in a free multiplayer open beta weekend in August, developers Treyarch have announced. No, this won't include that new battle royale mode, Blackout. As a casual observer of Cod I am sorry to see the antics of wallrunning and jetpacking removed this year, though it does have a grappling hook gun…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has battle royale, no campaign

Battle royale is indeed coming to CoD in Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, as had been rumoured, throwing together characters, weapons, and locations from across all the Blops - including the Zombies modes - in one big last-man-standing rumble. Activision today held their big reveal-o-rama event for this year's face-shooter, see, blabbing all sorts of details. They also confirmed the rumour that Cod Blops…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered now sold seperately

Activision have finally released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] by itself, no longer restricted to being an extra in an expensive edition of CoD: Infinite Warfare. Not that the revamp of 2007's seminal Call of Duty 4 is much more affordable now it's sold seperately, mind. If you want to relive the good old days, it'll cost you £35. And extra for…

Serious Spandex: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer

Batman & Robin is, I will insist until my dying days, one of the best-executed superhero movies. "What killed the dinosaurs?" Arnold Schwarzenegger asks as Mr. Freeze. "The ice age!" he cries as he starts blasting away with an ice laser. It wanted to be an absurd take on dim memories of Adam West-era Batman silliness and by Jove, the neon eyefuck certainly succeeded. Modern…

Arachnophilia: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I have to admire the latest video for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game tie-in of the sequel to the reboot of the film trilogy adaptation of the long-running comic book series. For one thing, it claims to be the 'first gameplay' footage and that's exactly what it is. It seems to have been edited by the most haphazard of methods, with combat sequences ending seemingly…

Superiority Complex: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Has a Spider-Man villain ever built a giant version of those suction devices that capture arachnid infiltrators so that they can be safely disposed of? I like to think that it's happened several times over the decades, so that whenever the quip-slinger hears a vacuum cleaner, he soils his spandex. Judging by the reveal trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - the game of the…

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Could Be Amazing

Or it could be rubbish. But on the evidence of the gameplay-free trailer (below) and the reveal at NYCC, I am hoping it'll prove to be an above-average comic/movie license. Details on Polygon suggest improved combat and web-slinging (well they would say that), as well as an expanded and explorable Manhattan backdrop, and "light-RPG elements". Nothing heavy, darling.

The Amazing Spider-Man review

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can, apart from have sex with another spider. I've been playing The Amazing Spider-Man for a few days now. I think I'm about two-thirds of the way through. That is plenty of time wearing the mask, and I am now ready to tell you Wot I Think.

Spider-Man! Spider-Man. Er, Spider-Release Date

As surely as it's going to rain all summer long here in Blighty, so there's surely going to be a new super-hero movie with game tie-ins. This time it's The Amazing Spider-Man, who will be slinging webs as only a tidy young actor - not a nightmarish twitchy arachnid half-breed - can. It's a fancy-looking open-world type thing, and it really does look moderately entertaining.…

Edge Of Time: Spider-Mens 2

The last Activision Spider-Man game, Shattered Dimensions, in theory arrived on PC some months after the console version, but it appeared no bugger could actually find it. Even now, I can't seem to spy anywhere online selling it apart from some place in Germany. Hope you're enjoying it, Germans. Keeping it all to yourself and that. Bah. Nonetheless, the follow-up to the multi-dimensional action-manthumper is…

Spider-Man: Edge Of Time Trailer

This weekend saw that announcement of a new Spider-Man game, the second from Activision's Beenox. Called Edge Of Time, it... it... I'm still trying to get my head around exactly what it's all about. There seem to be two Spider-Mans, one all angry looking, trying to save each other by manipulating different time lines. See if you can make better sense of what looks like…

Spider-Man: Edge Of Time Hits This Autumn

The developers of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, a game universally hailed by critics (including myself!) as "fine", are making a sequel entitled Spider-Man: Edge of Time. It's hard to know what's more remarkable- that the press release says it'll be set in two different timelines at once in a Day of the Tentacle style, or that they're turning it around in under a year since the…

Does Some of What A Spider Can: PC Spidey

I am a 31 year old man. I have played and written about some of the most stunning, thoughtful and esoteric games ever created. My ears shouldn't twitch even slightly at news of a new superhero game. God help me, they do. God help me. And so it came to pass that my inner child-nerd gave a gleeful start upon hearing that Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions…
