Five Ways Days Gone Differs From Other Open-world Games

by Jeff Marchiafava

As open-world games have become more commonplace over the past few years, so too have the formulaic activities they offer players to occupy their time. From climbing up towers to taking down bandit camps, and nabbing crafting items every few feet in between, players often know what to expect from open-world gameplay as soon as they strike out in the direction of their choice.


 

New Gameplay Today – Dark Souls Remastered

by Jeff Cork

You know what's out next week? Why, it's Dark Souls Remastered! Series superfan Dan Tack took Leo and me on a quick tour of Blighttown – a zone notorious as much for for its atmosphere as its performance issues. Does it hold up well in this version? What? You think we'd just say it here? Sheesh!


The Forest Review – A Gruesome Champion

by Javy Gwaltney

The figure in the distance has spotted my camp. I know because I can hear him chittering. I move slowly to the side, hiding myself within the bushes as the humanoid approaches the bonfire near my log cabin. I consider waiting the whole thing out but realize he’ll just bring a war party to my doorstep if I let him leave. I creep up behind him. He turns just in time to get an axe to the face. My camp and I are now both safe. And, moreover, I also finally have a grisly meal for dinner.

Watch Us Take On The Horde In Days Gone

by Ben Hanson

Since Days Gone's reveal at E3 2016, a huge point of discussion for the game has been "the horde." One of the most interesting aspects of the game from Sony Bend is the team's ability to have hundreds upon hundreds of freakers rush toward the player as a dynamic, dangerous biomass. Sony Bend is eager to show that the E3 2016 demo is real tech in the game, and there's no better way to do that than to have the horde brutally kill us over and over again. While visiting the studio for our cover story on Days Gone, we passed the PS4 controller between Jeff Cork, Jeff Marchiafava, and myself in an attempt to extinguish a 300-freaker strong horde.

Journal of a Mechwarrior

Uesugi-dono is chronicling his trek through Mechwarrior. He ends the blog with the hope to offer updates on the hulking mech-on-mech action often. And guess what? We're up to part five already!

My Journey Through Star Fox

TrentDF saddens me by not really getting into Star Fox until Adventures (which I enjoyed at the time, by the way). But to be fair, a lot of Star Fox games aren't all that great. TrentDF did enjoy Starfox 64, my favorite, so I'm happy he found a game in the series that he likes.

A Gaming Life: Pt. 2 – My Dream F-Zero Sequel

F-Zero is a crazy hard series, so I wasn't always too keen on it. I do love the game's world, however, and reading through Dominic Cichocki's hopes and dreams for a sequel makes me excited about what it could be on the Switch. The hybrid racing and side-scroller game does sound interesting.  Everything You Need To Know Ahead Of E3 2018.
