Opinion – Live services are a problematic trend in Gaming

Fallout 76 represents my ongoing beef with online-only titles that are somehow marketed as full releases. There are a number of overwhelmingly negative videos chastising Bethesda for releasing what can be classified as a early access title. While there are fans who defend what Fallout 76 actually represents, the issue is clear: these titles are…

Doom Eternal – An apt name for an Undying Franchise

My first memory of Doom was playing the first-person title on floppy disk at my dad’s workplace. I was amazed at the graphics and just how fast and smooth the action was. The double-barrel shotgun was my weapon of choice for demon slaying and this was before I got my hands on the BFG. It…
