Resident Evil 7 helped push January game sales up despite slump

Resident Evil 7 helped push January game sales up despite slump

Eric Frederiksen

January was a rough month for gaming in the US. According to the NPD Group, consumers spent 4 percent less on gaming than they did last year. That’s an overall figure, though, and it’s not all broken mirrors and Cure songs. Software sales are up 14 percent. The jump, says NPD analyst Sam Naji, “was due in large part to the stronger comparison this January with the release of Capcom’s ...

2016 was a great year for first person action games

2016 was a great year for first person action games

Eric Frederiksen

First person shooters have been popular ever since Wolfenstein and Doom. They’ve been a dominant force in gaming since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare took multiplayer shooters from big to monolithic. In the time since, shooters just haven’t been that interesting. They’ve been fun, they’ve sold well, but they haven’t been that interesting. 2016 saw first person games revisiting their...

I'm not having fun with Battlefield 1's multiplayer, and I blame Overwatch

I'm not having fun with Battlefield 1's multiplayer, and I blame Overwatch

Joey Davidson

Before you fly into the comments to defend the honor of your favorite video game franchise, wait. Do me that favor. Please. Battlefield 1 is a good game. Its multiplayer is a good iteration of the franchise. It’s not perfect, but nothing really is. My actual complaints stem from UI clutter and the inability to customize soldiers from the main menu. I’m not looking to slam DICE or ...

Battlefield 1 will look good. That’s never been in dispute. The franchise always looks incredible, and DICE is known for pushing graphics with Battlefield games. Here, thanks to Berdu, we have some seriously gorgeous screenshots. You can see them at the top of this post. These images were captured in 4K at a Battlefield 1 event hosted by EA. Berdu explained that “all the shots today...

The biggest video games launching in Oct. - What are you buying?

Ron Duwell

September turns to October, and the summer is far in our rear view mirrors. The biggest games of the year have yet to come with October sporting at least one major blockbuster title every week. In addition, a handful of exciting indie titles is also in the works, meaning this is going to be one busy month. Let’s see what’s available. Mafia III – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC – Oct. 7...

What is wrong with me? It’s not the premise, the graphics, the gameplay or the brand that has me now excited for Battlefield 1 after these new videos. It’s the music. Specifically, it’s the music that starts with the beginning of the video directly above. That music, but up against the unbelievable brutality of one of the world’s worst wars, works incredibly well. What unfolds after...

Battlefield 1 campaign revealed - It's "a gripping anthology of War Stories"

Battlefield 1 campaign revealed - It's "a gripping anthology of War Stories"

Joey Davidson

I’m ready to believe in you, DICE. Really. You haven’t put out a quality story in a shooter since Bad Company 2, and even that was pretty much standard stuff. Battlefield 1, thanks largely to its untouched World War I setting, has the potential to offer up a campaign that towers over contemporary war games. So far, I’m digging what DICE has said about the story. Well, more specifically...

The glitches of Battlefield 1's beta put together in an amazing video

The glitches of Battlefield 1's beta put together in an amazing video

Joey Davidson

Betas have glitches, typically. Battlefield? The franchise has been known for its bugs, too, though that normally comes as more of a positive and funny thing than a complaint. It should be no surprise then that the beta for Battlefield 1 was rife with glitches. That’s been captured and compiled in this incredible video from YouTube channel CrowbCat. This parody trailer mashes up a...

Battlefield 1 has a lot to prove in its single player campaign

Battlefield 1 has a lot to prove in its single player campaign

Eric Frederiksen

Where Call of Duty continues to move out of modern warfare and into the future, Electronic Arts and DICE are taking things back to the very birth of modern warfare this fall with Battlefield 1. This latest iteration of the Battlefield series is set in World War I, the first war that saw tanks on the ground and fighter planes in the skies. While games have drained World War II and modern...
