Every year, with Halloween approaching, Todd regales us with tales of games that he finds particularly scary. Last year it was Alien Isolation, which he had to stop playing due to health reasons. This year however, he’s not found any games too terrifying. But there are several things in real life that actually are much more frightening.
Rock Band 4 is out, but instead of rocking out with his classic gear, Todd was stuck buying all new equipment because of a shortage of classic adaptors for sale. And he is laying the blame for all of this, and quite a lot of angry frustration, squarely at the feet of Mad Catz.
Todd is so concerned about the recent rash of poorly-thought out game related crowd-funding projects that he is considering starting a new IndieNoGo column. First up: the recently cancelled Retro VGS.
Todd has been working hard on his Metal Gear Solid Phantom Pain review, but he’s taking his time and not using the infamous “chicken hat” to advance. While he loves the game a lot, it’s not the perfect title some people claim.
Many longtime Metal Gear Solid fans, like our own Todd Hargosh, thought that Ground Zeroes was an unabashed mess. Now Hargosh is playing the new Phantom Pain, and it’s slowly growing on him as he works on his final review.
We all know that Todd has been rightly enraged at some of the crazy things retailers tried to bundle with game consoles. However, the new crop of bundles available now offer some really great values in games and peripherals for all consoles.
Microsoft held back a bit from E3 so that it could really shine at Gamescom. And that might have been a good play, as the lineup of games scheduled for 2015 and into 2016 is looking to be very impressive.
Hargosh is loving all the new features being added to the Xbox One, but one of the most interesting is the fact that Windows 10 is making some console games compatible with PC titles. Will this boost Xbox’s popularity?
Todd has been a huge fan of the Shenmue series since the beginning, so you would think that the news that Shenmue 3 is being developed would thrill him. But the way that Sony is using crowd-sourcing instead of directly supporting the game really rubs him the wrong way.
With the year almost half over, Todd picks the top five games that have tickled his fancy so far. Will these powerhouses be able to hold onto their slots through the end of the year, or will some of the games announced at E3 arrive to usurp them?
