‘No Man’s Sky’ developers promise to ‘expand the universe’ in future updates

All the hype in the world couldn’t save No Man’s Sky from the inevitable backlash. In fact, the hype is exactly why many gamers are disappointed in the final product — a game that somehow manages to become repetitive despite the fact that it offers a nearly limitless universe with 18 quintillion planets to explore.

Thankfully, the developers aren’t done with it yet.

Nintendo kills off 500 fan games that use Mario, Zelda or Pokemon characters

Nintendo kills off 500 fan games that use Mario, Zelda or Pokemon characters

Nintendo has never had much patience for copyright infringement. Whether it’s a YouTube video or a fan game paying homage to one of the company’s classic franchises, sooner or later, there’s going to be a takedown notice involved.

These have become increasingly common in recent years, but Nintendo made a huge splash this week when it reportedly flagged 562 games from indie game site Game Jolt for removal under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Xbox One S review: Everything the Xbox One should have been, and more

Xbox One S review: Everything the Xbox One should have been, and more

By on September 2, 2016 at 11:50 AM.

As a consumer, I’ve never cared much about video game console redesigns. I had the boxy PlayStation 2 until I no longer had any use for a PlayStation 2. I still have an OG PlayStation 3 sitting in my entertainment center, complete with the backwards compatibility that the console lost post-revision.

It just never made any sense to me to buy a slimmer console that didn’t do anything that the box sitting in my living room couldn’t already do.

The Xbox One S is different. It’s a genuine upgrade.

Pokemon Go Gym Defenders

The ultimate Pokemon Go gym defenders tier list

The ultimate Pokemon Go gym defenders tier list

Although many Pokemon Go players are content with leveling up and catching rare Pokemon, there are others who prefer to dig into the competitive aspect of the game. Unfortunately, like many of the game’s other features, it requires a ton of trial and error to determine which of your Pokemon are best equipped to battle at, win and effectively defend a gym once you take it over.

At least, it was trial and error, until GamePress published an incredibly comprehensive list of all the best gym defenders and their toughest match-ups.

Titanfall 2 Preview

‘Titanfall 2’ could resuscitate a franchise that deserves another chance

‘Titanfall 2’ could resuscitate a franchise that deserves another chance

By on August 30, 2016 at 4:05 PM.

I hold to this day that Titanfall is the most dynamic, kinetic, entertaining and engaging first-person shooter of this generation. Unfortunately, we’ve become so accustomed to the carrot-on-a-stick multiplayer that Call of Duty and Battlefield have mastered that the lack of concrete rewards tainted Titanfall.

It didn’t matter that the game was fun — we wanted a single-player campaign, we wanted an addictive progression system and we didn’t get either. So within months, the player base had shrunk to a tiny fraction of its original size.

Nintendo NX Rumor Roundup

Everything we think we know about Nintendo’s NX

Everything we think we know about Nintendo’s NX

Microsoft just released the Xbox One S and Sony is preparing to unveil the PS4 Slim, but in a few short months, Nintendo will launch the first truly new major video game console since 2013. The NX is currently scheduled to release next March, but we still know hardly anything about the console, as Nintendo has been predictably tight-lipped ever since the console was announced.

So in truth, we don’t know anything concrete about the NX, and likely won’t for a few more months. But at the very least, what do we think we know? More →
