Anthem has been marketed as the Destiny killer following the hype train approaching its release. It was pretty quickly made evident though that the game didn’t exactly do what people thought it would. Since Anthem sales only made 10% of the sales that Destiny originally had in its own launch week. Not looking good for Bioware The source of this analysis did add that the comparison was made with the sales both games had in the United Kingdom. Destiny 1 was a very popular MMO shooter in its Prime days despite the many flaws of the game. To be more specific regarding the sales comparison of both sales. Destiny sales amounted to about 417,000 copies within the launch week in the United Kingdom. If Anthem only made 10% of it in their own launch week, that means Anthem only sold 40,000 copies in the United Kingdom. Not something EA wanted or most likely anticipated either in that sense. One thing to note from this comparison of statistics is that this is the … [Read more...] about Anthem Sales Embarrassingly Low Compared to Destiny 2 Launch Week

Pretty soon the grim news cycle is going to grind to life again. Only three months until — no! Don’t think about it. We still have a moment here, on the crinkly, brightly coloured waves. Listen to their quiet rustling and think, not about reality, but about games! Yes, lovely, shiny games. We can bury our face right in them. And from that point of view the next 12 months are looking pretty good. Here’s our selection of the games we’re most looking forward to next year. Brendan: I like a corridor shooter. No open world to gawk at. No map to consult. No mountain to tramp towards. Just a nice, grim-faced bulletfunnel, with some nonsensical story and firey set pieces thrown in. The Metro games were not perfect, but they are among the best examples of a shooter admirably concentrating on its own genre. While Call of Duty’s corridor shoots became so stale that they dropped the singleplayer mode entirely for Codblops 4, the Metro folks went quiet. In recent … [Read more...] about The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019
It’s the end of the year, and it’s time to look forward to gaming in 2019. While we’ve had an excellent year’s worth of games in 2018, it looks like next year might be even better. We asked the GR staff which games they’re most rabidly anticipating and why. These are our most anticipated games of 2019. Paul Tamburro, executive editor – Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. It’s a game we know very little about right now, aside from it being set shortly after Revenge of the Sith and featuring a young, surviving Padawan. The Star Wars license has received some disappointing video game adaptations recently, but a story-driven adventure helmed by Respawn Entertainment is exactly my cup of tea. Titanfall 2‘s single-player campaign was a breath of fresh air, with Respawn really nailing player movement to create thrilling, fluid action sequences. Imagine that kinda verticality in a Star Wars game? Hopefully, EA doesn’t … [Read more...] about GameRevolution’s Most Anticipated Games of 2019
The best season of the year is ahead of us: Spider-Man PS4 launches his webs on September 7, Lara follows with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Then comes FIFA 19, Battlefield 5, Black Ops 4, Forza Horizon 4, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2 - it’s going to be a hot fall, so we've gone on a quest to find the best 4K HDR TV possible for your budget. Ask a seasoned gamer what TV you should buy and the answer pretty much always is: OLED. Buy an LG OLED if you have the budget. It’s going to transform the way you experience movies, Netflix and gaming. OLED technology produces the best black levels possible which means black really is black. Picture a scene where you are deep underwater and the surrounding area is completely dark. There is no natural light coming from the moon, you are so deep in the ocean, the only light source is your flashlight. If you play on an older LCD panel, the black surrounding you won’t be black. It will have a touch of grey … [Read more...] about What is the best LG 4K TV for gaming? And should you buy OLED?
These are the best Xbox One games, officially and painstakingly selected especially for you, dear reader. Some great games are on the horizon for Xbox One. Just this week Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was announced, and with State of Decay 2 imminent and Crackdown 3 rumoured to be coming soon, 2018 looks like its going to be a good year. We’ve recently added Capcom’s life-consuming action-RPG Monster Hunter World to this list, as well as overnight streaming sensation Fortnite: Battle Royale. Microsoft’s first AAA-exclusive of the year – Sea of Thieves – dropped in March. Despite some launch issues, it’s such swashbuckling fun that it’s made our list too. At the tail end of last year the beautiful Egyptian open-world of Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Nazi-splattering FPS extravaganza, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus both made the cut. It was also time to bid farewell to Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, as Middle Earth: Shadow of War … [Read more...] about The best Xbox One games in 2018: every must-play on Xbox One S and One X
