TMO – Tell us what it is like to BE Spiderman – Can you do whatever a spider can?
- I wish could play Spiderman – these guys did GameSpot staff chat about their experiences with the classic web-swinger they had fun, but listening to ‘what’ they are really saying…. Hmmm… I don’t know. —– Exclusives aren’t enough to get me to buy other hardware – I just don’t understand them anymore. – Also wouldn’t it have been a perfect week for Xbox to bust out backward compatibility for Spider-man, Spider-man 2 and Spider-man 3?!!
They really need to do timed exclusives, cause this game on the X would be the bomb. It’s not a console seller, but this & God of War together & a great deal on a PS4 this Black Friday, might have people dive in. Latest suit Spider-Armor MK II Suit
Battlefield V Open Beta
- EA Access App, Graphics & Gameplay
- For all of its exciting innovations, Battlefield 5 borrows Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s worst feature Battlefield 5 is learning from the success of PUBG, trading cinematic lustre for the more satisfying player-driven moments
- The stench of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 somehow ended up emanating from the Battlefield 5 beta, because the more you examine this upgrade system the more it’ll become clear which game it was inspired by.
- In Battlefield 5, you spawn with two magazines for your main weapon. Anyone who played a multiplayer shooter before will tell you that this is not a lot of bullets. This changes the moment-to-moment gameplay so drastically I am unsure how DICE managed to get it past the higher-ups at the studio. Having less ammo from the off forces you to conserve it. With the help of the increased weapon recoil and more aggressive bullet drop, you’re much more incentivised to stick to your main weapon intended range.
- The same concept of attrition carries over to player health, which no longer fully regenerates. When you take damage, your health will regenerate back up to the closest mark. I couldn’t tell how many segments the health bar has in total, but I estimate about four or five.
- Like with ammo, you’ll have to rely on help from other players to return to full health. When that’s not an option, retreating to the closest supply station is your best bet. When DICE first unveiled this change, I feared it would encourage camping the same way it does today in hardcore modes.
- Vladz’s rant: I hate dying and I do it quite a bit. The little animation for me to choose to cling to life and beg other players to revive me and have them completely ignore me most of the time sucks after a bit. And when I do bleed out, I’m brought to a squad spawn watching other players I may or may not be able to join depending on if they are engaged in combat or not without any reference to where they or everyone else is on the map. The overview map is much better for that. Also, can we chill with all the muzzle flash? Jeez… a little goes a long way and a lot just is annoying. And while I’m at it, why can’t I check out the attachments or upgrades in between matches without backing out of the game? That sucks, if I want to stay with that group of 64 others I should be able to adjust my junk between games. Get me in the freaking game!! – I know it is a beta, but I should be able to get tossed into a game even already underway without just static screens without any idea if I’m about to enter or just stalled. And with that said…. Such is the chaos of war… I’m am TOTALLY BUYING THIS GAME!! She is Gorgeous she is, a real beauty.
2 girls working my Xbox: Everything you need to know about the Xbox Skill Beta for Cortana and Alexa
- Prices sink for the Xbox One X Kinect adaptor upon that announcement. Remember when Microsoft announced that they wouldn’t be making more of them that $30 cable jumped to $300 on Amazon and Ebay Well those prices have dropped now. Q: Could Vladz pull off syncing Alexa and his Xbox?
- But the reviews (little as they are so far are looking good https://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-one/shadow-of-the-tomb-raider
