GTA Online now has an Adversary mode that pits players against each other in an ever-decreasing playzone. You parachute in, you scavenge for weapons, then you plug anyone who comes across your path, using whatever means necessary to survive. Sound familiar? Fight for your life in our list of the best survival games. Rockstar are clearly banking on the success of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. I mean, it makes sense for them - parachuting, vehicles, and guns are already key to their game - but it got us thinking: what other games would benefit from a battle royale mode? Here are our completely sensible suggestions. Dark Souls 3 It’s time to get looty in Lothric. Dark Souls PvP expanded as the series went on. In fact, Dark Souls 3 already features a dedicated arena where you can plonk down your gang sign (they’re totally called that, shut up) and materialise inside someone else’s world, ready for battle. It’s time to crank that up. … [Read more...] about 7 games that would be infinitely improved by a battle royale mode

Far Cry 5 got released this past Tuesday in the fist quarter of the year, still, after facing criticism and controversy, Far Cry 5 has got a record-breaking success and is the top selling game at least in UK. In UK, Far Cry is now officially the fastest selling game in the history of the Far Cry series making it the biggest launch in Far Cry history. Despite the release at the start of this year which has been quiet for the world of gaming, Far Cry 5 was well received by gamers and had a big launch campaign. Far Cry 5 is the biggest name on schedule for six months and biggest launch of the 2018 uptil now leaving behind games like Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ which launched in the first month of January and arguably the two biggest and notable games of the year until Far Cry 5. Far Cry 5 being the biggest release of the year is a big achievement and might seem like because there was no competition or Ubisoft’s marketing team did a really good … [Read more...] about Far Cry 5 Is Already The Biggest Game In Series History In UK
Major League Baseball’s opening day is today — yes, you read that correctly. It is the earliest the season has ever started, and only the sixth time in the past 100 years the season has opened on a Thursday. Twenty-eight of the 30 clubs are playing, also a record. (Cincinnati and Detroit would have made it a full 30, but, hey, weather happened.) Out Of The Park Baseball, the acclaimed management simulation for Windows PC, Mac and Linux, provided official predictions for MLB Network last night, supplementing about a dozen panelists (among them MLB The Show 18 announcers Matt Vasgersian and Dan Plesac). But where those panelists are giving a single gut call before the first of 162 games for each team are played, OOTP 19 ran 1,000 simulations. Based on the frequency of the outcomes, Out of the Park Baseball 19 predicts this for the 2018 MLB season, as related last night on MLB Network: The Cleveland Indians win the American League pennant, and the Los Angeles Dodgers the … [Read more...] about MLB’s stat-crunchingest video game predicts a World Series win for L.A.
Side quests can make or break your game — good ones draw players further into your world; bad ones may sour players on the entire experience. To that end, we reached out to several game writers and designers for their thoughts and recommendations on great side quests — or games with generally-strong side quests — that every developer should study. Their responses are summarized below, but first, courtesy of former Black Isle writer, designer, and Obsidian creative director Chris Avellone, here are four general guidelines to evaluate everything against: A good side quest informs the main plot or the area it’s located in in all respects — lore, NPCs, even through the rewards you get. A bad side quest is a quest that upstages the main quest in terms of stakes, enemies, or even the lore. Side quests should be quick and fun to complete (15 min is the range I shoot for). Side quests should use the core gameplay mechanics and avoid special … [Read more...] about Designing side quests? Study these 7 games (and some Chris Avellone pointers)
Rockstar might not have officially announced Grand Theft Auto 6, but there’s no doubt that it’s in development. Don’t expect official confirmation until after Red Dead Redemption 2 hits shelves on October 26, 2018, with GTA 6 unlikely to release until 2020 or beyond. As absurd as it might sound to speculate about the next Grand Theft Auto game, there’s solid historical precedent to build on if you apply the principles of a predictive technique called the Fermi problem – more on that later. We’ll use this article to provide you our best guess on GTA 6’s setting, release date, structure and more, with regular updates. What has Rockstar said about GTA 6 on the record? Rockstar North’s former President teased the next series entry back in 2013 in a four-part interview with Develop magazine, which got the online rumour mill started: “We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we’ve got some ideas,” said Benzies in the … [Read more...] about Everything we know about GTA 6 so far – and how predictive science might help us plot the future of Rockstar’s open-world series
