Fortnite discussion usually revolves around the game’s Battle Royale mode, but the original, cooperative Save the World mode is still alive and kicking. Save the World will reportedly go free-to-play sometime this year, but for now you have to pay at least $39.99 to access it. At least you did until this morning. The mode is on sale for 50 percent off until July 30, which means you only have to pay $19.99 if you want to give it a shot. The question, if you’re not interested in a mode that’s more grind than adventure, is whether or not you should pick up the mode at its sale price just to farm V-Bucks. The answer is simple: Maybe. In this guide we’re going to take a look at what kind of V-Bucks you can expect to get from Save the World, and how hard you’ll have to work to get them. Why would you care about grinding V-Bucks in Save the World? Because the V-bucks you earn in either mode aren’t stuck there. “Any V-Bucks earned/bought in Save … [Read more...] about Should you buy Fortnite’s Save the World mode just to farm V-Bucks?
The worlds hardest game 2
Don't let the major behind-the-scenes changes for Hitman 2 fool you, as this game has an interactive playground like no other. Despite not being episodic like the 2016 game and now being published by Warner Bros. instead of Square Enix, this direct sequel takes everything from before and amps it up even higher. The Miami level I got to check out at E3 2018 felt right at home with the likes of the first season's Paris and Sapienza. This gorgeous sunny level featured an open sandbox for me to explore. Nearly everything in the level could be interacted with in some way, even if it was as simple as being able to subdue a random NPC. Hitman 2's level of freedom is unparalleled, even more so than the episodic first season. Miami is a bright and cheery level, taking place at a major Grand Prix race. The initial target — there are two but I only got to check out one — I had to eliminate was, surprisingly, one of the race car drivers. Hitman 2 Preview: Bad Blood When the … [Read more...] about Hitman 2 Features an Interactive Playground Like No Other [E3 2018 Preview]
We saw well over 100 games throughout our time at E3 and whittling that down to just 8 was difficult. We had seven staff at the show and each of us chose one game and we collectively chose the final one, which so happens to be the last game on this list. Below you’ll find all 8 and why we gave them the award. A Plague Tale: Innocence By Alex Parker When I first sat down in the demo room, I was not sure what I was walking into. I took my seat and looked up to a menu screen full of rats, which is slightly off putting when you do not know which direction this is heading. The dev team began the game, and I was instantly sucked into the world of A Plague Tale: Innocence. The level design was detailed, intuitive, and not overtly complex. I also noticed how beautiful the color palate and lighting engine were in this world based on a grim storyline. The core function of the gameplay is based around puzzles and a more toned-down approach to combat. Protecting your loved ones and … [Read more...] about Here’s The 8 Best Games We Saw at E3 2018
Here are our picks for the absolute best PS4 games. From blockbusters to indies, action roller-coasters to contemplative explorations, these are the best games available right now for Sony’s PlayStation 4, as selected by the voracious gamers of VG247. We’ll be checking back in with new games on the regular, as old favourites are retired and new challengers rise above the pack to win a place in our hearts. It’s been a while since we last updated this list, and 2017 has long since drawn to a close. During last year we got some new info on games that might one day make this list, like Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part 2. But for now, the most recent additions to our list are the mainstream smash-hit sensation Fortnite: Battle Royale and Capcom’s action-RPG epic Monster Hunter World. At the end of last year, Middle Earth: Shadow of War arrived to succeed the venerable old Shadow of Mordor on our list – building on the rock-solid … [Read more...] about The best PS4 games in 2018: every must-play on Sony’s flagship console
This week, we’re running a big list of what we — and a group of trusted friends — recently voted as the 500 best video games of all time. For the backstory, criteria, explanation of why Breath of the Wild isn’t on the list, etc., head to the beginning here: The 500 best games of all time. For numbers 400-301, scroll down. 400. Mirror's Edge (2008, PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, others) Keep moving. That's the main objective of Mirror's Edge. Releasing alongside dozens of first-person shooters, Mirror's Edge stood for daring to be different. Putting an emphasis on using first-person parkour to outsmart enemies, rather than just shooting through them, Mirror's Edge was a flawed beauty stuck in the memory of those who just kept running through its clean, white city. 399. Braid (2008, PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, others) In many ways, the modern indie explosion started with Braid. Unlike anything people had seen at the time, Braid and its time-bending puzzles … [Read more...] about The 500 best games of all time: 400-301
