2016 was a pretty crappy year in general for everything not related to video games. Fortunately, the video game side of things was flipping awesome, with scores of great releases from well-established franchises and brand new IPs. The bounty of games inevitably leads to the all-consuming question: which ones should be added to your played list during the holidays? Or better yet, can I afford them all? Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Dragon's Dogma has been around a couple of years and finally made its way to PC early this year. This definitive edition, which includes the Dark Arisen content, adds all sorts of small visual improvements, unlocks the framerate to 60 FPS, and has fast-travel. If you have a PC and a pulse, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen needs to be in your library. The unique blend of action-RPG elements and a Monster Hunter-esque host of beasts is unlike anything else out there. The best news is that it can be found on the cheap. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Official GP Review The Warhammer 40K mythos has always been prime grounds for a proper video game treatment. To date, very few competent releases have graced our palms. Then along came Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, a wonderful space-based RTS that pits giant warships against each other in absolute slugfests. Featuring a deep campaign with story-altering decisions and a robust combat system, this game does the Warhammer universe justice. Alienation Guns, gore, and aliens. Alienation delivers exactly what Housemarque promised and then some. Explosions shatter the landscape as monsters are reduced to piles of goo. Players are given a host of alien-dispatching tools to get to work, a nice progression system, and randomized loot. While the difficulty spikes can be off-putting, Alienation is at its best when players are teaming up or squaring off against each other to silence the beasts from beyond. DOOM I really can't say much more about DOOM that hasn't been said already, but if you have any interest in shooters, this needs to be in your library yesterday. DOOM is a great interpretation of the classic franchise, eschewing nuance for nut-punching the devil over and over again. With a thrilling campaign and serviceable multiplayer, DOOM is one of the best FPSes to come out in ages. The Elder Scrolls Online: One Tamriel I'm not much for MMOs, but The Elder Scrolls Online is one of the rare exceptions that deserves your attention. The original game came out some time ago but was derided by reviewers for restricting what made The Elder Scrolls so memorable; player freedom. The recently-released One Tamriel update unshackles players of all levels and sets them loose to tackle quests and exploration in whatever order they please. It makes a very solid foundation a totally fresh experience, and that's before Zenimax adds the Homestead update. Game of the Year Titanfall 2 DOOM would have held the title of 'Best Shooter', but Respawn shocked me with just how great Titanfall 2 is. The sequel to the under-rated online shooter adds a campaign and further refines the progression system to a spit-shine. The result is a varied experience backed up by gorgeous visuals and one of the best gameplay feels in some time. Titanfall 2 is an excellent shooter and deserves your hard-earned cash.
Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsGreat news for PlayStation 4 owners - you won't need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play the upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4, as confirmed by the game's director, Matt Firor, on the PlayStation Blog. All that will be required is the same monthly subscription that PC and Mac users will pay. Unfortunately for Xbox players, however, Bethesda confirmed to Joystiq that the game will require Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to be played on Xbox One. The company was reportedly in talks with Microsoft back in August to allow Xbox players to play the game without the XBL Gold subscription, but it looks as if those talks fell through. Firor also confirmed that the servers would be split amongst North America and Europe, squashing any hope that there would one megaserver between both territories. PS4 players will also be on their own dedicated megaservers, separate from PC and Mac users. The Elder Scrolls Online will launch first on PC and Mac on April 4 with a $15 monthly subscription cost, and release later in June on PS4 and Xbox One.
Jason Clement posted a article in PCBethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls Online will be launching on Windows and Mac on April 4, 2014, with a June release for Xbox One and PS4. The title has been said to be in development for some six years or so now, which would put the start of its development just a year after The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion released in 2006. It's also the first MMO to be developed within the series, which is surprising given the games' many similarities to the genre despite being a single-player experiences. Unfortunately, no pricing was announced for the game itself, though Bethesda has mentioned before that they will be using a traditional subscription model for it, with the cost being $15 a month.
