inFamous and Titanfall – Mediocrity overlooked?

Titanfall and inFamous have seen their fair share of praise and critical acclaim but both have glaring faults which have been overlooked. This is of course due to a drought in gaming goodness for the supposed ‘next-gen’ consoles. It’s been a long, cold, dry spell if you’re an Xbox One or PS4 owner. Never in the history of the Playstation or Xbox have I ever been so bored or underwhelmed by the offerings a few months in to their console lives. Have they just capitalized on a severe lack of games for each system or did we actually start believing the hype? Keep Reading…

Halo 2 Anniversary – What we expect

If rumors are true then we could see the next Halo remake at the end of this year. Halo 2 came top of our Top 5 Xbox Live games of all time and with good reason, because no other game has come close to emulating what it did for online gaming. Lessons can be learnt from the mediocre sales of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, no mistakes can be made¬†with the multiplayer like there was in that¬†remake. Here’s what 343 needs to do to bring in sales and keep the fans happy.

Keep the Ranking system

halo 2 ranking system

This is key to it’s success or failure. Halo 2 had a brutal ranking system, the 1-50 skill based ranking system caused major headaches for everyone but it was the reason we all kept coming back. Getting to a level 40 was a major achievement, something we could be proud of, something that was respected by friends and the reason many of us kept playing. Sure, cheating was rife but no-one cared, we need a genuine ranking system in all FPS games even though recent games tell us otherwise. I sincerely hope that 343 do not replace the ranking system in any way, the fans don’t want a progression based levelling system and any modification of the system would spell disaster.

It was met with widespread critical acclaim and has been championed as a new era in First person shooters. However, Titanfall does have it’s shortcomings and I’m not talking about the lack of campaign mode.

Titanfall sales – The console war continues

It’s fair to say that Titanfall has been the most hyped and talked about game in recent memory. However, the gaming public seem to have an unhealthy obsession with numbers and sales and so far they have yet to be released. I would assume that if the sales numbers would of been significant then we would of received an announcement by now. If Titanfall does manage to someone ‘flop’ this will be unceremoniously celebrated amongst PS4 fanboys, who already took to metacritic to try and derail the Titanfall juggernaut by giving fake reviews. This will undoubtedly lead to a retaliation when Infamous: Second Son releases shortly. Keep Reading…
