IT'S been a long time coming, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is today finally playable on Xbox One. Microsoft announced the most recent Modern Warfare title would now finally work on their latest console on Twitter last night. This means that if you've got an Xbox 360 version of the game on disc hanging around, you can just bung it in your Xbox One and go crazy. If you don't already have a copy but wanted to play one of last generation's best shooters, then Microsoft has you covered too. As part of the firm's Deals With Gold promotion, you can get MW3 for a mere £12.49. If you don't have an Xbox Live Gold subscription, then it'll set you back £24.99. While it was hardly revolutionary, MW3 was a solid entry into the series, and stands up well, even after almost seven years.

THE dust has settled, and the victor is left standing alone. In this case, it's got a samurai sword in one hand, a bow on its back and a PSVR headset on. Flanking the opposition from both sides with The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghosts of Tsushima and a stampede down the middle of everything from Death Stranding to Tetris Effect and Spider-Man, no-one else really stood a chance against the Sony behemoth. Death Stranding's E3 trailer is bloody, baffling and beautiful The only downside for Sony, really, was the furore of them throwing their weight around to block crossplay for any Fortnite player who had ever played on PS4. This may seem like a minor issue, but the problem and Sony's reaction to it show a big beast abusing its market dominance to the detriment of their customers. The Japanese giant may--correctly--think that this sort of behaviour will shore up its dominance this generation, but is exactly the sort of behaviour that let the Xbox 360 dominate the PS3. Back to the good stuff, … [Read more...] about Sorry, Xbox One fans – Sony won E3 hands down
USING a combination of freely available tools and code, some madman has created a playable Magic Eye poster out of the original Doom video game. Each frame of the game is generated as a random-dot autostereogram, the type of popularised in the 90s by Magic Eye books and posters. Created by a developer who goes by the name of blogum and uploaded to itch.io, OMDO features the first three maps of iD software's 1993 classic DOOM. As with all autostereograms they initially appear like static, or a random collection of coloured dots. However, if you use the correct viewing technique a 3D image will appear in place of the dots as things line up for you. This involves either focusing your eyes some distance in front of the image you're trying to view -- going cross-eyed, effectively -- or some distance behind it.

TRADING is finally coming to Pokémon Go. It's going to arrive this week alongside a new Friendship system, according to Eurogamer. Swapping Pokemon has been as integral a part of catching them all as throwing Pokeballs since the inception of Pokemon games, but it's not featured in the smash hit smartphone entry in the franchise until now. You'll need to be within 100m of your friends to trade Pokémon with them, and it'll cost you some in-game resources. The range of Pokémon you can trade goes up with your friendship level, and the cost goes down. You'll also be able to send your friends presents and get bonuses while raiding with them. One of the potential presents are a new type of egg which will be initially the only way to initially obtain some of the Alolan-region Pokémon introduced in the most recent update. The Alolan Exeggcutor was released into the wild to celebrate the announcement of the Pokémon Let's Go games, while Alolan forms of Diglett and … [Read more...] about Pokémon Go players FINALLY getting a way to trade Pokemon with their friends
Kevin Bruner, the former CEO of Telltale Games, is suing the company for alleged breach of contract. Bruner was originally appointed CEO in January 2015, when he replaced his fellow co-founder, Dan Connors. After two years in the position, Bruner stepped down, claiming that “the time [had] come to pass the reins to someone that can better drive Telltale to the next level”. Bruner stayed on the board of directors during the transition period, during which he was replaced on an interim basis by Connors. Telltale then appointed former Zynga exec Peter Hawley as its new CEO, and as far as we knew, that was that. Now, though, Bruner is challenging that version of events. In February of this year, Bruner filed a lawsuit against Telltale Games, claiming that company board members had been looking to replace him due to a desire for change in the company’s business model. According to Gamesindustry.biz, the lawsuit states that Telltale “was contractually required to … [Read more...] about The Former CEO Of Telltale Is Suing Them For Breach Of Contract
