The Order: 1886 Review

‘The Order: 1886′ review: Tale as old as time

‘The Order: 1886′ review: Tale as old as time

By on February 19, 2015 at 12:15 PM.

This is the most difficult game review I’ve ever had to write. Not because I lost a few of my fingers or because I don’t want to upset anyone, but because I’m not entirely sure what I’m reviewing.

The Order: 1886 is more of an interactive television series than it is a video game. This is what I had come to assume after previewing the game multiple times before launch, but I was still taken aback by just how much of this game didn’t require any input on my part. Entire chapters would whisk by without me ever having to pick up my controller.

PS4 vs. Xbox One Sales

PS4 expected to continue crushing the Xbox One through 2019

PS4 expected to continue crushing the Xbox One through 2019

There are plenty of great reasons to buy an Xbox One. I still stand by my assessment at the end of 2014 in which I decided that the Xbox One has evolved into a better console than the PlayStation 4 in many regards, but unsurprisingly, the market isn’t showing a very strong reaction to my articles.

All the risks of Kickstarter illustrated in a single $20,000 campaign

The crowdfunding revolution has been incredible to watch. We’ve seen canceled television shows resurrected on the big screen and the small screen, the Oculus Rift, the first hugely successful smartwatch and dozens of high-profile video games, board games, card games and any other type of game you could imagine.

We’ve also seen the dangers of pledging money to an idea rather than to a finished product. More →

PS4 Vs Xbox One

PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. Wii U: Lifetime console sales

PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. Wii U: Lifetime console sales

The next-generation video game console war is no longer the next-generation video game console war — it’s now the current-generation video game console war. Each of the three major gaming box makers has now had its new console on sale for more than a year, and it has been quite a roller coaster ride to say the least. Nintendo came up very short in gamers’ eyes when it comes to the new Wii U. Yes, there are definitely some great titles for the console and many more on the way, but gamers didn’t see enough new features on the box to warrant an upgrade from the wildly successful Wii.

Where Sony and Microsoft are concerned, Sony took an early lead when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both launched in November 2013, and the company never looked back.

But how do lifetime sales stack up now? More →

Evolve review: The thrill of the hunt

Evolve review: The thrill of the hunt

By on February 16, 2015 at 1:55 PM.

Our Medic is dead. The Trapper is fleeing for her life with the Monster just a step behind. The Assault is pumping as much electricity as he can into Goliath and I’m still trying to figure out how to play Support.

Fortuitously, the Monster stumbles into one of the Trapper’s traps just as I accidentally press the button that makes missiles rain down from the sky. I say accidentally because I was trying to switch weapons. I just hit the wrong button. The missiles connected; Goliath’s health dropped rapidly; our team rallied from behind and stormed back for a breathtaking victory.

This is how about 30% of my games of Evolve have gone. The other 70% have been blowouts one way or the other. More →

The Xbox One’s huge Christmas victory was sadly short lived

Microsoft’s herculean efforts over the holidays were enough to temporarily push the Xbox One to the top of the charts, but now that the dust has settled, the equilibrium seems to be shifting back in Sony’s direction. Following the release of The NPD Group’s latest report, SCEA informed the press that the PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in January. More →
