HIGH: This is the best world Supergiant has created to date.
LOW: …It’s just a shame that the gameplay is so dull.
WTF: How can so many people live in one wagon?
Freedom. Faith. Firearms.
It’s upon these tenets that the citizens of Hope County, Montana have built their lives. These are the pillars by which they live, work, and teach their children. These are the fundamental convictions that the residents of this small, middle-American county turn to for guidance in how to come together as a community. They are also the tenets that a dangerous cult twists and perverts for their own ends in Far Cry 5.
When I was growing up, everyone wanted to be a TIE Fighter or X-Wing pilot. Not me. I always had my eye on the larger ships — I wanted to be in command of the Star Destroyer. Those mammoth vessels were crewed by a few hundred people and bristled with enough firepower to annihilate a small fleet. The developers at Yager seem to have shared my affinity for capital ships in their upcoming game, Dreadnought.
I had a chance to get a hold of Relic’s upcoming Dawn of War III during their recent closed multiplayer-only beta, and I found myself torn. While there were changes and improvements I enjoyed, there were also some design decisions I found extremely questionable. Keeping in mind that this is technically a beta even if the game does release in a few weeks, I’m going to list a few of the pros and cons I came across in the handful of matches I got to play.
Ubisoft recently invited GameCritics for an extended session of their upcoming Ghost Recon Wildlands, and I’m happy to say that even after playing it for four hours straight, I still want to hop right back into the world they created. Wildlands dramatically freshens up this long-standing franchise by setting the action in an open- world, fictionalized version of Bolivia.
Ubisoft was recently kind enough to invite GameCritics to take a look at their upcoming knights vs. vikings vs. ninjas brawler For Honor. I was able to get my hands on a few missions from the campaign, and also went a few rounds in the multiplayer arenas. This was my first time ever playing the game, and it clearly showed as For Honor requires more than button mashing to master.
