by William Usher The resolution disparity continues on as the Xbox One and PS4 face off over the latest high-end eighth generation exclusive, Lords of the Fallen. The game is a Dark Souls-style hack-and-slash, action-adventure that focuses a lot on the strategy and skill of combat rather than just relying on rapid button mashing. It’s been revealed, however, that Lords […]

Eight days later, Bungie leaving disconnected Destiny players stranded

by Sam Machkovech While opinions have been mixed on Destiny, Bungie’s first post-Halo video game, most impressions and reviews of the game thus far—including our own—have at least praised its online stability. That’s no small feat for an always-online game, especially in its first week, but error reports are beginning to accumulate from Destiny players across all four of the […]

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Dev Responds to Titanfall “Ripoff” Claims

by Eddie Makuch When Activision announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back in May, comparisons to Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall were immediately made, with claims flying that Advanced Warfare was an imitation of Titanfall because it was future-focused and had mechs. Now, the studio behind this year’s Call of Duty, Sledgehammer Games, has responded to a criticism that Advanced Warfare is […]

Creator of Nintendo’s Mario and Zelda Slams Smartphone Gaming as Pathetic

by Sam Mattera “[It’s just] a bigger iPod touch,” said Satoru Iwata, Nintendo’s CEO, in response to Apple’s unveiling of the first-generation iPad back in 2010. Iwata wasn’t necessarily wrong, but Apple has clearly had the last laugh: The explosion of mobile gaming, led in large part by Apple’s iPad, has had a devastating effect on Nintendo’s business. Nintendo’s handheld DS and Wii living room video game consoles, released in 2004 and 2006, respectively (long before the iPad), were somewhat of a popular phenomenon, moving a combined total of over 250 million units. But their successors, the 3DS and Wii U, have been far less successful. The Wii U, in particular, has fallen short of Nintendo’s expectations, while the 3DS […]

Sega blames Gearbox for mismanaging Aliens: Colonial Marines marketing

by Brian Crecente Gearbox Software studio head Randy Pitchford did “whatever the fuck he likes” when it came to the marketing and promotion of Aliens: Colonial Marines, according to documents filed this week in the class-action lawsuit claiming the game was falsely advertised at trade shows. The Sept. 2 filing by Sega of America details the publisher’s take on why Gearbox is just as culpable in the case as Sega. The company’s attorney writes that despite Gearbox’s claims that they weren’t involved in marketing, Gearbox participated equally, sometimes overstepping bounds or keeping Sega in the dark about promotional decisions. Aliens: Colonial Marines was released Feb. 12, 2013, to harsh criticism and low review scores. Some players and reviewers noted that […]

Sega to tentatively pay out $1.25M in Aliens suit while Gearbox fights on

by Brian Crecente Sega of America will pay out $1.25 million to settle a class-action suit brought against it and Gearbox Software that claimed the two companies falsely advertised Aliens: Colonial Marines by using faked demos of the game at E3 and other trade shows, under a settlement plan filed with the court today. If approved, the settlement will clear Sega of America of any further litigation, but not Gearbox Software, which recently filed a request to have claims against it dropped. In the motion for preliminary approval of class action settlement agreement, filed with the Northern District of California court on Monday, attorneys for plaintiff John Locke said they expect to request the court to grant approval of the […]

‘It Was Just As Much Work On Both PS4 And Xbox One To Achieve 1080p/60fps’

by Rashid Sayed Ever since the release of Xbox One’s June SDK update, more and more developers have been able to run their games at 1080p. For developers who have not been able to ramp up the resolution, they were able to add more visual effects. The SDK update has bought nothing but good news for game developers so one can be hopeful that things will further improve in the next year or so. Ever since the launch of the first wave of new games, there has been some sort of a consensus that achieving 1080p/60fps is easier on the PlayStation 4 compared to the Xbox One. After all, several games have ran better on the PlayStation 4. However, that […]
