about X hours ago from

The Division players have more to look forward to than just Last Stand.

Ubisoft Massive announced details for Last Stand, the third expansion to The Division, yesterday, and promised more information would be made available today on the 1.6 update. They made good on that promise, and the information provided is rather extensive.

According to the developers, update 1.6 will includes normal regular balancing tweaks and changes. These include some that could be major game changers for some players, and along with the changes comes an expanded game map, new special events, a revamp for Named gear, Dark Zone leaderboards and a new difficulty level.

Dark Souls 3 player makes mockery of one the game’s toughest bosses with unrivalled precision

about X hours ago from

Remember how you thought parrying attacks in Dark Souls 3 was the coolest/hardest thing anyone could do? Prepare to change your perspective.

Dark Souls 3, like its predecessors, allows you to parry enemy attacks. Provided you have the timing down, (which relies on a number of factors, don’t even get me started), you can deflect most enemy attacks, giving you a chance to hit them for massive damage.

This even works on certain bosses, too. But you probably already know all of this. What you don’t know, however, is that there’s more that can be done with the system.

Resident Evil Interview: “why should we make something that everyone else is making?”

Resident Evil Interview: “why should we make something that everyone else is making?”

Resident Evil 7’s director and producer talk changing direction, first-person and rebooting a horror classic.

Resident Evil 7 is a risk. While the previous entry in the series had a rough critical reception, let’s not pretend it wasn’t a success: it was hokey and weird, but it also went on to become Capcom’s second best selling game ever. Making a game with the same mad formula would’ve been the easy way out – but that’s not the way Capcom ended up going. That in itself deserves praise – the seventh entry in the series is a very different beast.

Key to the decision to change the series up in a big way was producer Masachika Kawata and director Koshi Nakanishi. When I meet the pair at the end of a whirlwind promotional tour for the game they appear content with their creation but also slightly apprehensive to see how it’s received. One thing they are certain on is clear: that this is a change that needed to happen.
