Launch issues aren’t new. They may not be expected at a game’s launch, much less hoped for, but to say that they are entirely unforeseen is probably unlikely at this point. After all, even big titles from Battlefield 3 to the more recent Dishonored 2 - triple-A game... Read More

Call of Duty tends to get bashed by gamers, and I myself have poked fun at the franchise too. But despite that, as well as the split opinions caused by the mobility-boosting features of some of the futuristic entries, 2014’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - which I pla... Read More
