With its expansive and well-crafted campaign and nearly endlessly deep well of optional and after-story content, Monolith's Middle Earth: Shadow of War is a generous and entertaining package that impresses at almost every turn.
Everything in that first batch was fun, new, and downright silly, and while each subsequent pack has tried to recapture that magic, none, including Jackbox Party Pack IV, has managed such an overall great package. IV gets close, with 4 of the 5 included games eliciting solid guffaws from my assembled group of family and friends, but one drops the ball so completely that I had literally had people pass when a small emergency forced us to start it over.
Gran Turismo Sport enters the circuit relatively late into the PS4’s lifecycle. It also marks the 20th anniversary of the series. The technical brilliance is evident, with lavish visuals running in smooth 60fps all-around. Still, when the initial glamour wears off, it’s clear that Gran Turismo Sport would have benefited from a less hard ground.
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to review the Logitech G933 a headset that I really enjoyed albeit it’s steep $200 price tag. Today I’m back to tell you about my experience with the latest Logitech headset I’ve had the chance to test out that’s half the price.
I have something of a fascination with gaming headsets. I’ve lived in an apartment or attached townhouse for the last decade. The idea of having a giant surround sound system just hasn’t been practical. I’ve been on the search for a headset to use for the majority of my gaming. Today, I’m reviewing the Turtle Beach Elite Pro Headset, one of Turtle Beach’s latest forays into the high-end gaming headset market.
I had the opportunity to try out the upcoming expansion to Ubisoft’s Steep, titled Road to the Olympics. This full expansion will add official Winter Olympics events and a career mode to the base game’s open-world skiing and snowboarding gameplay. From the early build, I played, Steep: Road to the Olympics had a satisfying competitive atmosphere while retaining the thrill of speeding downhill.
Since the 90s, Quake has been known as one of the most hardcore shooters in e-sports. Id Software's Quake 3 Arena revolutionized both the genre and competitive gaming scene with one swift twitch of the mouse. It was considered a masterpiece with precise controls, fluid combat, and a very dedicated fan base. While it's extremely technical it's also a bundle of fun, especially if you're playing with your friends. Quake Champions has, in theory, just about everything that made the aforementioned title so special.
