I can't pretend Under the Skin is a particularly good game. It's woefully shallow and often teeth-grindingly unfair, as confusing action collides with an unhelpful camera. The overall tone and characters are so exuberant and over the top that it becomes exhausting to watch, let alone play. It is fun, though, in small doses and it still pops into my brain whenever stealth games are in discussion, so it must have done something right. If nothing else it makes me wish for a mod that lets Agent 47 turn into a giant puce superhero and fly around the level, knocking people over like a psychotic Mr Tumble. … [Read more...] about Revisiting Under the Skin, Capcom’s forgotten arcade stealth game

Are we excited that Massive is making a Star Wars game?Tim Clark, Brand Director: I love this. It's one of those announcements that just seems such a good fit that your brain immediately spins up with ideas. I played a lot of The Division, and only less of its sequel because by that point my Destiny 2 addiction had spiraled so irrevocably out of control. But if we're to assume that this new Star Wars game will be some sort of shared-world looter shooter, then the license feels like an incredibly good fit. What I think the continued love for KOTOR tells us is that Star Wars fans want to live in this universe, not just blow through a quick campaign like Fallen Order, and although live service loot games have a bit of a bad rap right now—largely I think because they're so hard to get right—Massive is one of very few studios with the experience to pull it off. … [Read more...] about What do we want from Ubisoft’s open world Star Wars game?

Here's the first of our pay-off mods, and it's a monster. Players tend to sleep on Reactive Pulse, partly because it originally had a different name and didn't do what the description said. Whoops! It actually works in multiple ways: When you take damage your guardian will emit an explosive blast of Arc energy that does substantial damage. Not enough that it's going to worry bosses, but as you can see from the gif above it clears swarms of adds just fine. Essentially you become a walking grenade that functions as both an offensive and defensive tool. Reactive Pulse is so good that once you take it off you'll feel the absence immediately. As with certain other Arc affinity mods, it also comes with a secondary perk which will be active provided you have another Arc-affinity mod socketed somewhere else in your build, including in the same piece of armour. In this case it grants an overshield when performing finishers. Overshields are good. … [Read more...] about How to create a powerful Destiny 2 ‘Charged with Light’ build that works anywhere
