Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part Two)

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part Two)

  Hello, and welcome to part two of my contribution to Our Year in Games 2016. I’m continuing my tale of my year in games by talking about another selection of games that weren’t necessarily released in 2016. I have played new games this year, honest! But a lot of older games have played some part in shaping my year in games. Here’s four of them.

Playstation 4 – First Weeks in the New Generation

Playstation 4 – First Weeks in the New Generation

As the new generation (and the new war) of consoles rumbles reluctantly into second gear, I have decided that, for once, I won’t be jumping on this particular bandwagon only as it hurtles into retirement. For once I will be at the cusp of the technological curve, and damn all those who say “wait”. Damn them and their stupid neckbeards. So I took the step to a brighter future and bought myself a Playstation 4, along with Killzone and Battlefield 4. Four weeks on, here are my thoughts.

Our Week in Games – Week 71

Our Week in Games – Week 71

Games journalism is moving forward and breaking new ground with prominent figures such as Matt Lees and Cara Ellison use Patreon to crowd-fund support for exploring new avenues. Matt looks to be branching into doing YouTube on his own terms while Cara is travelling and getting into embedded journalism with indies. And then of course we get articles which spend the first half talking about how to breathe. I won’t link to that, save to say I didn’t see the point. The question is, what can we do here at Reticule Towers to give you what you want. Let us know in the comments.

On a less serious note, lets get on with Our Week in Games.

Battlefield 4 – The Verdict

Battlefield 4 – The Verdict

Battlefield is and should be about team based gameplay whether that be single player with AI or multiplayer with a team of friends. With that in mind it’s strange that the campaign of Battlefield 4 does such a terrible job of making you feel like part of a team.

Eurogamer Expo Day Two – The Lowdown

Eurogamer Expo Day Two – The Lowdown

I took the executive decision to stay in my hotel room until 11am and therefore skip the inevitable massive queue that would have been present if I had gone early. As such I was able to walk straight in to Day Two of the Expo without getting stuck in the usual massive queue.

E3 From the UK – A Quick Look at EA and Ubisoft Presentations

E3 From the UK – A Quick Look at EA and Ubisoft Presentations

I didn’t watch the conferences from EA or Ubisoft live, I followed them on Twitter while watching Game of Thrones and Banshee. However much I love games, I do sometimes wonder whether they will ever quite match the story-telling and action found in shows from studios like HBO. Certainly nothing I’ve seen from E3 so far leads me to think we are entering a truly new generation of games, more that the consoles are finally catching up with the power found on PCs for a few years now. Despite this negative view, a few bits grabbed my attention from the EA and Ubisoft events.

Battlefield 4 Confirmed [Updated]

Battlefield 4 Confirmed [Updated]

[Update]An official website is now live right here, and a press release is now available after the break. Lo-and-behold, Battlefield 4 has been confirmed by way of a Medal of Honor blog-post which reveals that you will get Beta access to Battlefield 4 if you pre-order Medal of Honor. It should be no surprise that there is another Battlefield game, but I can see some people wondering why it isn’t another Bad Company game and instead is going to be…
