Bioware has been subject to lots of controversy over the past year, the once shining Knight in the RPG genre has been reduced to memes, rant videos about facial animations and accusations of chasing money (ahem, Anthem). Fans have attributed this shift in quality to the acquisition of the studio by EA, a massive publisher and development that has been known for squeezing the very lifeforce out of gamers with brick wall microtransactions and DLC.
Far Cry 5 the latest iteration in the Far Cry franchise has been subject to lots of attention in the lead up to the game’s launch. Some gamers were worried that we’d see more of the same Far Cry junk (open-world, liberate, move on blah blah blah), while others had faith in the new changes Ubisoft was bringing to the formulaic game.
I’m not quite sure whether any fox hunters read Gameranx on the regular, but if you happen to be one, Focus Lab Studios has created a game that will send shivers down your spine. Fox Run is a free to play Android game where foxes can run indefinitely, which of course means they’ll never be caught. The bushy tailed beasts can also collect berries and dodge obstacles with a touch less grace than Mary Lou Retton, but let’s not forget their endless running ability. Damn impressive.
That slimy discomfort you get when you’re hiding under the duvet and a mistimed creak fills the room? Yeah, that’s not your imagination. And in psychological horror title The InnerFriend, Canadian indie team Playmind will show you just how real that godforsaken place is.
A researcher from the UK is arguing that Fortnite, Epic Games’ sandbox survival game, isn’t addictive.
The anime-inspired fighter game, Gundam Versus is running for a super low price via the digital marketplace, Amazon.
A couple weeks back Fortnite hit iOS providing the exact same battle royale experience you got from PC, PS4 and Xbox One, except on iOS devices. Unfortunately, the game was limited to ‘invite-only’, allowing only a select few players to play the game before it’s imminent public release (despite this limitation, the game still hit no. 1 on the app store.)
Yes, I’ve been reading the comments, I know you are tired of Fortnite news, but it’s not my fault that Epic Games continues to dominate the gaming market (and with it bring more viewers to my articles). In the most recent line of news regarding the third person shooter, the title has officially surpassed rockstar’s massively popular open-world shooter, GTA V. This is a considerable achievement as GTA V has consistently been of those games with a high playercount – and continues to sell well, despite releasing just under 5 years ago.
