Doom’s Great Reception

Doom is one of those games that has, over the years, managed to develop an extraoprdinary cult following. It is one of the most appreciated games of the older generation of gamers, so it is perfectly understandable why many of them looked upon the new version of the game with trepidation. It turns out that that fear was largely unfounded, with the new version receiving a response that was about as positive as could be expected. The game succeeded, to a degree, in capturing the magic that was the original game, with a very intense gaming experience that is incredibly challenging. The game offers a long campaign mode that has 5 different difficulty levels, stretching from the incredibly easy “I’m to young to die”, where there is a fairly good...

Although a PS5 Might not Happen, PS4.5 is Set to be Released

While our most recent article provided quotes from Playstation representatives saying that a PS5 wasn’t a guarantee, we’ve also seen the announcement of a PS4.5 being set to be released. The reason why this new model is called the 4.5 rather than the 5 is similar to why most tech companies will produce newer versions of products as .1 or whatever instead of the next in the series; there simply isn’t enough of a distinction between the two. That being said, there are some pretty important differences between the 4 and the 4.5. The most substantial difference between the two consoles is going to be the support the 4.5 provides for 4k resolution. This is a pretty big step forward for console games graphics, and could see the quality reach...

According to Sony, a PS5 is not Necessarily going to Happen

According to Sony, developing a PS5 is not something that is necessarily going to happen. According to Shuhei Yoshida, it’s not a “when”, but an “if”, when it comes to¬† an eventual release of a next generation console. Fans of console gaming may be asking where this indecision is coming from, but once you understand some of the general trends in the world of gaming then it begins to make sense. While all gaming has been growing ever since the 80’s when consoles first started being produced, consoles have been steadily losing market share, in terms of a percentage of the total gaming industry, to PC gaming and other smaller devices (smartphones and tablets). Shuhei’s indecision¬† was accompanied by an explanation which hints at this being part of the reason,...

The Fallout of Fallout 4

1280x720-cuU So it’s now been a few weeks since the release of Fallout 4, perhaps the most widely anticipated game of 2015, and it is due a review. Fallout 4, the continuation of one of the most popular game franchises, was looked forward to by the massive following the franchise has for a few years, and the opinions of most of the people who’ve tried it are in agreement; it’s good… it’s really good. Fallout 4 follows the same vein as previous titles; taking place following a massive nuclear war, 210 years to be exact. For those who’ve played the previous games, you should know that it takes place 10 years after the end of Fallout 3, but for those who haven’t you should know that Fallout 4 can still be...

No Man’s Sky – An Opportunity for an Adventure

no-mans-sky-gallery-04 No Man’s Sky is an, as of now, yet to be released game, but the initial look at what the game offers its users seems to offer people a lot of promise. Made by an independent gaming company, it has what is perhaps the most extensive world of any game ever made. The world of No Man’s Sky is a galaxy; you play an explorer going round to various planets, discovering (and naming) wildlife, resources and planets. Although the game is technically multiplayer, with the game universe being large enough that even if a planet is discovered every second, it’ll take 585 billion years to find them all, the chances of randomly encountering another player is very remote. Even intending to meet another player of the game will likely take...
