Activision Admits To Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Not Meeting Expectations And Underperforming

In a surprisingly honest admittance, Activision has said that Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare failed to meet player and company expectations, and that it “didn’t resonate” with the fans of the series. Over an earnings call, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg admitted to Call Of Duty under-performing when compared to the previous games in the series, with the primary knock against it being the setting. Infinite Warfare had been up against the wall ever since the first trailer being revealed on YouTube and going on to be the one of the most disliked videos on the platform. This was a clear sign from the fanbase that the futuristic setting and absurdity that the series was heading towards was not welcome. To be fair, Infinite Warfare did turn out to have one of the better Call Of D...

PewDiePie’s Response To Wall Street Journal’s Claims Of Him Promoting Nazi Sentiments Is Spot On

After being called a Nazi and anti-Semite, by Wall Street Journal and other main stream media outlets, the great lord of YouTube, PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg) has responded. In an 11 minute video, the popular YouTuber, puts up an extremely strong case in his defense (which he didn’t need to since all he did was in good humor). It all started when the Wall Street Journal put out an article trying to question PewDiePie’s videos by pointing out 9 instances in his videos that were anti-Semitic, also saying that Neo-Nazi groups were celebrating his words. This then led Disney and YouTube to sever ties with Pewds. The vast majority of WSJ’s article, and other similar articles that came out in its wake all took his videos out of context, and ironically, some of the videos were po...

Far Cry 5 Releasing In November 2017?

Ubisoft has been known as one leaky studio when it comes to it’s upcoming games, be it because of its wildly popular games or its executives leaving Powerpoint presentations open in the subway. This time the leak comes via GameStop, where a listing of upcoming PS4 Games included Far Cry 5. What’s even better is that there was a release date attached to the title, with the game being set to launch on 26 November 2017. The information was spotted by SG Gaming Info, and without any official confirmation is to be taken as rumor and speculation. Also to be considered is that 26 November 2017 is a Sunday, and games usually launch on a Friday, so this date might be a placeholder, albeit as odd as it might be. We might hear more from Ubisoft at E3 this year. though Ubisoft has mentione...

Mass Effect Andromeda Is Not An Open World Game

Yes you are adventuring in space, and yes you can explore planets, but according to producer Michael Gamble, Mass Effect Andromeda is not an ‘Open World Game’. In an interview with OXM (Official Xbox Magazine), he discussed some of the aspects of the new Mass Effect game saying that it would be an ‘exploration-based game’. “I definitely wouldn’t call Andromeda an open-world game,” Gamble said. “We like to use the term ‘exploration-based game’. You still have the concept of tight story deliverance and all the great things you come to expect with Mass Effect. The layer on top of that is a layer of exploration. Sometimes that happens in open spaces, but not always. You can cruise around some of these planets in the Nomad, but it̵...
