Google Stadia GDC 2019 Announcement

I understand that Stadia has third party partners (Ubisoft, Id etc.), but will they also partner with Sony and Microsoft? It is a pretty ambitious effort, in a largely unregulated industry, but I am not so sure I want any one company to control all of gaming.

Anthem Ranger Javelin

Anthem’s Loot System is Not Bugged

Anthem's loot system is not bugged, and anyone who is trying to scientifically analyze it, is missing the obvious clue. Electronic Arts Inc is a publicly listed company.

Apex Legends

EA Paid NINJA $1 Million to Promote Apex Legends?

After Apex Legends launched, Respawn Entertainment tweeted day after day about how many people were playing it. Like it was organic love, for a new Battle Royale game. Needless to say, it was all nonsense. Apex Legends was guerilla marketed via EA thru streamers and influencers. And EA paid handsomely to do it, per Reuters.

Fortnite

Fortnite – The Baller Trailer

I dont play Fortnite, but I watch quite a bit of Fortnite livestream, and I hope the game continues to do well, so that the Epic Games Store gets all the resources it needs to continue to put pressure on Steam.

Anthem Javelins

Anthem Water Skimming

I usually just fly until I overheat, then run a little bit, waiting for cooldown, then takeoff again. I never considered flying near water sources, until I saw an Interceptor do it, in game.

The Division 2

The Division 2 Launch Trailer

@Nichstaroni Twitch.tv/Nichstaroni YouTube.com/Nichstaroni This is not a good trailer. The visuals are good, but the music did not fit and it was competing with the dialogue. I look forward to […]

X Men Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Dark Phoenix International Trailer

I remember when the X-Men movies were a really big deal, now they are like a distant second to the Marvel movies. This is a good trailer, but I am only mildly interested in seeing this movie in the theaters. I will definitely watch it, when it debuts on YouTube TV.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince Trailer

@Nichstaroni Twitch.tv/Nichstaroni YouTube.com/Nichstaroni Now with four player co-op. I think I played a demo of the first Trine, and purchased all three games, but never played them… Hopefully, with Trine […]

The Division 2

The Division 2 Marksman Rifle is Perfect for PVE (Beta)

There is no doubt the success or failure of The Division 2 will depend largely on the gunplay. The bullet-sponginess of the first game (one of my all time favorite games), is universally hated. The reason why I loved The Division so much, while others expressed more mixed feelings, is because I played mainly support and high electronics geared layouts, which are less dependent on firearms.

Anthem Game: The Predator

Anthem Javelin Painting

I have spent several hours in the Forge, trying to recreate some of my favorite superheros and movie characters. The main drawback right now, is that you can only have five painted suits saved, per Javelin. And because I have decided to only play Ranger and Storm, I can only save ten painted suits.
