It’s time to stop making excuses for game publisher greed

It’s time to stop making excuses for game publisher greed

If you find you're dismayed by the current state of the AAA games industry, you certainly aren't alone. These days, it seems like many games from publishers like Electronic Arts, Activision, Ubisoft, and countless others are vehicles for microtransactions first and actual games second.

By looking around the internet, I get the feeling that’s true for a lot of folks, who all complain about EA’s overbearing commitment to live service games and the pursuit of profits over anything else.

Major Anthem update may give game a new lease on life

Major Anthem update may give game a new lease on life

At this point, it's safe to say that Anthem wasn't the success BioWare was looking for. The game floundered upon release, leading BioWare to eventually delay its content roadmap for the game to fix the issues players were complaining about. We haven't heard much from Anthem in recent months, and while that may lead you to believe that Anthem is more or less dead, a big report today says that isn't the case.

Apex Legends is finally getting a duos mode, but there’s a catch

Since launching earlier this year, Apex Legends has stood out from other games in the battle royale genre by putting players into three-man teams and not offering other modes aside from that. While titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds allow players to drop in solo, in duos, or in squads of four, Apex Legends has mostly stuck to that three-man formula.
