Rage 2 arrives on consoles slathered in hot pink highlights, mutant entrails and the fingerprints of a new development team. Avalanche Studios picks up the series’ reigns, joining id Software to create something rather unique – a fast-paced first-person shooter combined with a large open world. From my perspective, it’s a special experience and the dual-studio collaboration pays off handsomely – but the technical decisions behind the game are intriguing, not to mention controversial.There’s no escaping it: the difference in… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-why-rage-2-is-best-played-on-xbox-one-x-and-ps4-pro URL of source article.
It’s 2019 and relaxing is near impossible. There’s debt, soul-crushing jobs that we hate, and that one jerk who wakes up at 4am to mow his lawn. How the hell is anyone supposed to relax in this day and age?For me, the answer used to be video games. After a gruelling day of being a child and feeling the pressure of society on my little shoulders, the thought of getting home and playing a few hours of Final Fantasy X… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-18-where-video-games-and-asmr-converge URL of source article.

Here’s hyperbole for you. Just as Sonic Mania saw a group of talented fans going wild with Sega’s icon to create something as good as, if not better than the very best 2D Sonic games, then the enthusiasts at Sumo Digital have worked similar magic here. Not that it’s saying particularly much, but this might well be the best 3D Sonic in a generation or two.Maybe that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – not if you’ve been paying… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-17-team-sonic-racing-review-smart-spin-on-the-character-kart-formula URL of source article.
For all its promise of anarchic mayhem and its striking punk palette, Rage 2 is a surprisingly vanilla experience. Though on paper it delivers a lot of the contemporary triple-A features we’ve come to expect – meaty combat, open-world exploration, sassy (if occasionally grossly stereotypical) NPCs that offer secrets and side missions, unlockable fast travel, and a perfectly serviceable, if somewhat derivative, post-apocalyptic story – it sometimes feels as though these disparate parts are pieces of a puzzle that don’t… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-17-rage-2-review-sparkling-combat-is-let-down-by-a-hollow-open-world URL of source article.

This piece contains spoilers for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The main quest of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey isn’t really about fighting an evil cult. It’s not even about settling the fate of the Greek world, though, hey, if you’re passing through why not sort that out yeah? Odyssey is a tale of family. Its title evokes the tale of Odysseus trying to return home, and so too is Kassandra. (Oh please, like I played as Alexios.) She’s not headed for her literal… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-15-assassins-creed-odysseys-best-ending-is-its-weakest URL of source article.
The review embargo for Rage 2 has just lifted, and you’ll likely be seeing pieces from other sites going live around about now. Unfortunately, we only received code this morning, a handful of hours before the embargo, so we’ll be unable to bring you our own review until later this week. It’s a slightly frustrating state of affairs, though not exactly a new one. You might recall a handful of years ago that Bethesda laid out its stall when it… Read original at Eurogamer — https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-13-rage-2-review URL of source article.
Despite only recently adding duos to the squad options in Battlefield 5’s battle royale mode, Firestorm, DICE and publisher EA have now decided to remove the option, stating there simply weren’t enough players making use of the mode. “Duo received an overwhelmingly positive reaction at launch,” said EA community manager, Adam Freeman, on the Battlefield 5 subreddit (thanks, VG24/7). “It debuted during a weekend, and was initially done so only as an early first look at the mode.
