WHAT IS HAPPENING?

The sun glinted off the top of the tanks, sand swirled lazily, birds tweeted in nearby trees. It was so beautiful, so calm, so un-planetside 2. If you have ever played this game, you will know it’s bonkers. I was part of the Terran Republic, an imperialistic, controlling faction, and we were losing badly. Planetside 2 is marketed as an mmo fps but it is really just a huge shooter […]

Will We See Master Chief’s Face In Halo 5

Master Chief’s face is one of gaming’s greatest myths. Halo developers Bungie have been especially careful about keeping the hero’s identity hidden. We’ve had several full shots of John-117 in his younger days, but we’ve only ever had one real glimpse of the man behind the helmet. It came in Halo 4; where, by unlocking the Legendary ending, players could see a super close-up of Chief’s eyes (article title image). […]

Will PlayStation Backward Compatibility Happen?

Although Sony must have thought they’d stole the show with an excellent press conference at E3 back in June, Microsoft’s announcement of the Backward Compatibility service for Xbox One threw a pretty massive spanner in the works. Perhaps the biggest grumble gamers have about this generation of consoles, is the lack of access to games bought in the previous generation. It used to be a given that machines would be […]

43 Additional Titles Added to Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility List

Microsoft’s smart decision to add backwards compatibility to the console has not only proved to be a smart PR move but a great business decision. Playing your Xbox 360 game on your Xbox One will work as if it was just an Xbox One game, allowing you to snap pictures, take game clips, earn achievements, play multiplayer and even go to your home screen(using the snap system). Unfortunately, not every title will work […]
