Sony Doesn't Need Cross-play, But Should Have Joined

Sony doesn't need to be involved with console cross-play. They are the biggest selling and most popular console, so by default they already have more players than both Microsoft and Nintendo. And why would they prevent the sale of a PS4 because said consumer can't play with their friend who already owns one? 

I'll tell you why. 

Sony has now given the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch an exclusive feature. By not participating they have made, what could have been…

Battlefield V Revealed. And Yes, It's WWII.

As expected, today was the day that EA revealed the new game in the Battlefield series. And boy was I wrong:

It's not Bad Company, it's not Hardline, it's Battlefield. And so close to the release of Battlefield 1, too. Well, the game looks beautiful and the action looks true to life. 

I'm not as thrilled as most Battlefield fans…

Overwatch Gets Lego-fied

Activision Blizzard has just announced a partnership with Lego to bring the heroes and maps to the masses in the form of Lego sets. 



Though sets haven't been revealed, they will start arriving in Spring/Summer 2018 with each being treated as they treat new in-game events. I'm sure this means cryptic leaks and and TONs of anticipation. 

And expect Nerf adding some Overwatch themed weapons as part of their Nerf Rivals line sometime in January 2019. 

As for…

Overwatch vs Team Fortress [VIDEO]

There's no doubt that Overwatch is a "spiritual successor" to Team Fortress. In fact, that's why I love Overwatch so much. Team Fortress was my PC game of choice, and at the time, there was nothing like it on Playstation or Xbox. 

So if you're like me and put many years into TFC/TF2...

THEN. WATCH. THIS. NOW: …

The King of Kong Still Wins

Billy Mitchell, the "King Of Kong", has finally been caught cheating. In the documentary King of Kong, he was kind of a "bad guy". He would never meet up for a high score challenge in person, and was kind of a dick. 

But I say he won. 

He lived his life as a champion during a time where high scores WERE gaming, and arcades were dominating the U.S. He was going…

The Kraken Does Not Discriminate

Our second encounter with the Kraken happened whilst having an off and on battle with a galleon. In the middle of our quarrel, the Kraken attacked them. 

Of course, we HAD to get in on that. Shot at them while I boarded and started attacking the crew. 

Well, after a bit, the galleon escaped the Kraken's clutches. Then this happened: …

With Uprising Comes Retribution

Excuse me while I change my undies. 

The event that most of us have been waiting for starts April 10th. I'm talking the return of Overwatch's Uprising. This time, with the Uprising we know and love, we get a new co-op story, Retribution. 

It focuses on the first Blackwatch mission and the "official" mode will include Genji, McCree (which I'm assuming is on his first mission), Reaper, and Moira. MOIRA!! (I'm a Moira main)…

Introducing The New Atari...Again

Let's start this quicky with the announcement of the next Tomb Raider game: Shadow of the Tomb Raider. 

This is the third installment of the rebooted series and unlike the previous, Rise of the Tomb Raider, this one doesn't have launch exclusivity so Playstation players will get this one right off the bat.

New Battle Royale Game, The Darwin Project, Lands Friday

The Darwin Project is another addition to the Battle Royale genre but in a much smaller scale. It's a 10 person survival "game" which would appear to work the same way as PUBG or Fortnite. The difference, minus weather having an effect on health, is the inclusion of an 11th player, the show director, who oversees and influences the battle in multiple ways. Much like Director Mode in games like Left 4 Dead, which are usually only available in custom games, this mode will entail things from…

Funko Season 3 Overwatch Pops Coming!

New Overwatch Funko Pops are on their way and this next set is my favorite so far. Not only does it include my prior mains, Mercy and Zarya, but Sombra is part of the mix. Being a newer character, I would have thought it wouldn't be till season 5 or 6 that we'd see her. 

And I love…
