Get High-Res Killstreaks In This New COD Modern Warfare Remastered Multiplayer Trailer

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was the best shooter when it released back in 2007, with a great singleplayer campaign and an even greater multiplayer mode, and it’s seems like it is ready to make a comeback. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t more excited for COD Modern Warfare Remastered than COD Infinite Warfare, which is proved by the new multiplayer reveal trailer for the Remaster. Returning to its roots, the trailer takes you back to the good old days when shooting other people was more about shooting other people in the face and less about wall-running, Specialists and “Pick 10”. It’s all about how fast your trigger finger is, and man does it look better than ever. The textures are much sharper, with more realistic character models and well detailed env...

Play Anywhere: Xbox To Join Forces With PC?

We may have been a little late in jumping on the E3 bandwagon, but here we are with a list of our favourite titles from this year’s conference.   Here are the titles: FIFA ’17 As beautiful as ever, this installment of FIFA has been developed on the Frostbite Engine, the same engine used to develop Battlefield 1.

PS Neo To Launch This Year, Despite Being A No-Show At E3?

The PS Neo is surrounded by rumors, the latest ones indicating that it may launch this year itself, despite having no mention at E3 2016. Is it possible that Sony might have sped up the treadmill after the Project Scorpio announcement? Or maybe Sony’s attempt to prevent its fan base from jumping on to the PC wagon? All this is mere speculation, but it certainly bring out the best of titles for the gamers, seeing these two giants go head-to-head. The most interesting thing now, perhaps, will be how developers plan to utilize their resources if and when the Neo is released this year.  Another thing that may become clear is that whether 4K is really the focus for these companies. While it may be a good decision for Sony to wait for more content to be available for the PS Neo before they...
