The Sims doesn’t really do it for me. Like, I get it. I’m all for a good “Nazi experiment simulator“. But I just can’t get into it, and I’m not sure I ever will. Still, I have to admit The Sims 4‘s latest Vampires pack looks incredibly fun.
Editor’s note: Yes, this review is impressively late. And given that this is one of the hottest releases of 2016, that kinda sucks. We’ve been holding off on publishing our thoughts because Michael’s been trying to get to the bottom of the issues surrounding the game’s lack of local servers. It’s a subject that many South African Battlefield fans are rightfully livid about, and we hoped to be able to review the game only after we’d gotten some sort of peaceful resolution on the issue. It doesn’t look like that’ll be coming anytime soon though, so here’s how we feel about the game, server drama and all.
So, this is World War I ‘ey! I can’t say I’ve ever played a WWI game before. I’ve played many WWII games and even enjoyed a little Vietnam action here and there, but never WWI. It’s an exciting proposition: using early 20th-century weapons and tactics to battle through unique environments and get a taste of what combat was like back in The Great War. WWI was the answer to the “what’s next for Battlefield?” question posed by Electronic Arts and DICE – and it’s an answer that’s worked out brilliantly for them.
Asyoucanprobablytell, a lot of us (especially Tarryn) are really stoked for Titanfall 2‘s release later this week. The hype-o-meter hasn’t fallen below 11 since that first teaser trailer dropped in April.
The sequel has a single-player campaign, and throughout it we’ll get to experience a more fulfilling, emotional relationship between man and murderous death-bot than what was seen in the original game. Titanfall 2‘s launch trailer focuses on this camaraderie.
Around 12 minutes of new Battlefield 1 campaign footage has made its way onto YouTube, and it’s the best 12 minutes you’ll spend today. Included in the video is footage from the game’s prologue, called Storm of Steel. It’s hugely impressive and thought-provoking.
I’ve covered a lot of Battlefield 1 news in the past few weeks, and I couldn’t help but include little anecdotes in each piece about how hopelessly in love I am with the game. I mean, it’s not even out yet, and I’m practically standing outside its bedroom window blaring Peter Gabriel. But in the interest of unbiased journalism, I’ll try to tone it down a bit.
OMG THE CAMPAIGN FOR BATTLEFIELD 1 LOOKS FRIGGIN AMAZINGSAUCE! Well, that didn’t last long. Seriously though, EA DICE recently released some tantalising new info about the game’s single-player mode, as well as a dramatic new trailer that easily makes it into my list of top five list of best game trailers ever.
