  • No Stealth Please, We’re Jedi: The Missing Mechanic of Jedi: Fallen Order

    Electronic Arts may have acquired the coveted Star Wars licensing deal back in 2013 but it’s only now that we’re reaping the rewards. Two disappointing Battlefront games and a scrapped project from Visceral later, Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been released and has proven to be a...
  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Confessions of a Shoot House 24/7 Addict

    2019’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare had been promised to be both a return to the boots-on-the-ground, classic style of the older games in the series and a much-needed evolution for the franchise. For the most part, I feel the game has succeeded at that tough task, in both...
  • How Modern Warfare Brilliantly Reinvents the Call of Duty Campaign

    Spoilers for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign incoming.  Call of Duty is back in a big way. Over the past few years, the law of diminishing returns has been in full force and the games have gotten so steadily worse that I didn’t even bother playing the...
  • My Hopes For Dragon Ball Games In The Next Generation

    Dragon Ball is a series with a long list of video game titles stretching back all the way to 1986. They’ve had their ups and downs but the most recent ones have been truly transformative in my eyes. DB XenoVerse 2, my favourite, is excellent while DB FighterZ is...

    The following article contains spoilers for Gears 5. Read on at your peril! While I now consider myself a fan of the Gears of War franchise, I only began playing the games this past year. Since January I have been playing through the series in their order of release,...
  • My Love-Hate Relationship with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Atlantis DLC

    Greece is beautiful. Oh, in real life sure, but I’m talking about the Peloponnesian War-era Greece that’s open to explore in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. I’ve spent an almost embarrassing number of hours in the game, most of which are spent in the most picturesque digital landscapes imaginable. But for...
  • Rocket League at Dreamhack Montreal (2019)

    Dreamhack Pro Circuit took place last weekend in Montreal, Canada. A Rocket League LAN tournament with a selection of the best teams from across the world competing to become champions. One of a few such tournaments held around the world throughout the year but it’s the first one I’ve...
