Rogue Company Early Access Preview

Another week, another online shooter. After an interesting first showing during one of last year’s Nintendo Directs, Hi-Rez Studios’ (Paladins, Smite) latest entry into competitive shooters is finally out in beta phase.


Disintegration Preview (Closed Beta)

AJ Small

It’s a safe bet that anyone who mentions Disintegration will likely mention Halo in the next sentence due to the developer’s history with that franchise, and it’s probably why people are paying attention to this game. Anyone being honest, though, will then mention that this title (at least in the closed beta) has more in common with Overwatch.


Death Stranding Review

Strands Across America

HIGH The online sharing is one of the coolest things ever in a game.

LOW The storytelling is absolute junk.

WTF Hideo Kojima has all the subtlety of a custard pie to the face.


God Eater 3 Review

Dig in, baby!

HIGH Dazing an Aragami and the whole squad wrecking its face before it can recover.

LOW The battle system lends itself to plenty of repetition.

WTF Nobody on the ship finds Phym annoying?


Apex Legends Review

Titanrise

HIGH The exciting swell of the soundtrack when dropping in.

LOW Most of the guns hold extremely small clips.

WTF It’s the rare battle royale game that doesn’t feel like a me-too rush job.


The Division 2 Preview

GameCritics was recently invited to a preview event offering roughly 5 hours of The Division 2, and it’s shaping up well. Based on what I played, it addresses many of the issues I had with the previous title while also seemingly focusing upon the endgame — something that was sorely lacking before.


Fallout 76 Review

 Almost Hell, West Virginia

HIGH Solid variety in the environments.

LOW Combat in the Creation Engine, without V.A.T.S., and with constant stuttering and lag.

WTF Charging $60 for what feels like alpha access.
