Tom1935 Interview

Posted by Rocky on Monday, May 30 2011

When we discovered we had a 75 year old GRAW2 multiplayer team versus team player in our midst, we just had to find out more.

Tom1935 started a discussion about GRAW2 multiplayer in our fourms that is already over 10 pages long and has some excellent advice for anyone just getting to grips with multiplayer games in GRAW2.

We sat down with Tom and asked him what it was about GRAW2 that was drawing him in to multiplayer games, playing against kids probably up to 60 years younger than himself! Read our interview with Tom1935 here and catch up on his discussion in the GRAW2 forums.

Ghost Recon Still The BEST

Posted by Rocky on Thursday, May 26 2011

SimHQ are running a feature at the moment declaring what every fan that still visits this site every day already knows, Ghost Recon is STILL the GREATEST Tactical Shooter Ever.

It's a great summary article that hits on the main points of why 10 years later there is still no single game that can pull of what Ghost Recon with ease - accessible squad tactical gaming. I'm sure we could easily ramp that report up to twenty reasons instead of ten without even pushing the boat out, but it is a good hit list that developers would do well to mull over now and then if they want to revive this particular gaming niche.

Apex has started the discussion going in our forums, chip in with an aspect of Ghost Recon that YOU would put in a top 20, I'm going to kick it off with one of my own highlights, this way folks...

Ubisoft Reaffirm Future Soldier

Posted by Rocky on Thursday, May 12 2011

In the face of fan frustration building to the point of questioning whether or not Ghost Recon Future Soldier will ever see the light of day, Ubisoft have highlighted Future Soldier as one of the key titles for 2011/12.

Listing Ghost Recon Future Soldier alongside other High Definition games such as Driver San-Fransisco and Rayman Origins, Ubisoft's latest Financial Report also confirms a commitment to solid multiplayer gaming.

That's the good news, the bad news is, the release date has been pushed back to early 2012. This moves future Soldier away from the expected release of some other big hitter shooters.

Entertainment Expo E3 is just around the corner and Future Soldier is expected to make an appearance, stay tuned for more soon...
