Do Delays Actually Help Games Like Uncharted 4 or Arkham Knight Become Better?

Do Delays Actually Help Games Like Uncharted 4 or Arkham Knight Become Better?

Delays. We hate them, they drive us nuts, they (at times) make us curse the developers. Not because they’re doing wrong, but because they’re keeping us from what we want. For video games, it’s keeping us from an experience we want to play. And yet…as I think about certain titles, I can’t help but wonder…do delays actually help certain games get better? Now when I say “certain games”, I don’t […]

Borderlands 2 Sales Reach Over 12 Million Copies

Borderlands 2 Sales Reach Over 12 Million Copies

There are two ways of telling how well a video game has sold. First is how it sells right off the bat, within the first week or even the first month. The second indicator is how well it sells in its lifetime and beyond. In the recent Major Nelson Podcast, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford announced that Borderlands 2 has crossed 12 million units sold. Not shipped, sold. This is a […]

Patch 1.3 for Turtle Rock Studios’ title Evolve has hit PC today. Bringing with it a number of balancing fixes, especially to the Wraith and Kraken monsters in particular. These changes are set to reach both PS4 and Xbox One next week. The patch notes released by Turtle Rock go into greater depth, but it appears the Wraith has taken a significant hit as far as balancing goes. Several of its […]

Xbox One Sales Rise 84 Percent in February

Xbox One Sales Rise 84 Percent in February

While it’s also the goal of companies to be on top in terms of sales, sometimes a vast improvement in sales is its own reward. Yesterday, we reported on the latest NPD numbers for both games on consoles, and revealed that PS4 was the highest-selling console for February. Which was true. However, further looking into it revealed that Xbox One sales increased 84% from January to February. This jump is […]

Xbox One/360 Owners will be the first to watch Dead Rising: Watchtower

Xbox One/360 Owners will be the first to watch Dead Rising: Watchtower

Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners will get exclusive access to the Dead Rising: Watchtower movie adaptation, one week before it’s made available to everyone else. Users will be able to stream the full movie via Crackle (ironically a Sony-backed streaming service), starting March 20th. I can’t think of anyone better than Rob Riggle to play quick-witted journalist and famed zombie-whacker Frank West, in this prequel to the original Dead […]

Project Cars Delay Shifts Release Date To “Mid-May”

Project Cars Delay Shifts Release Date To “Mid-May”

Project Cars has been a project fraught with delays. It was meant to be released last year, then early this year, and then finally this month…before it became next month. A (hopefully) final delay has been put on Project Cars. However, this one is more about finesse than trying to catch up. According to Slightly Mad Studios, the game is “99.9%” complete. So where’s the “.1%” that needs fixing? Well, […]

MGSV: Ground Zeroes Data will Unlock Exclusive Content in The Phantom Pain

MGSV: Ground Zeroes Data will Unlock Exclusive Content in The Phantom Pain

Konami have released an image that illustrates how saves from the Metal Gear Solid V prologue Ground Zeroes will be carried between systems. Transferring data from last-gen consoles to the current-gen is the important part, so users who purchased Ground Zeroes before hopping over to PS4 or XBox One won’t lose out on the bonuses their data will bring to the next game.  While it’s not clear how actions performed in […]
