Monster Hunter World has overtaken PUBG as the top selling game on the Xbox Store.
What universe are we living in? https://www.resetera.com/threads/so-after-2-months-being-1-top-paid-on-the-xbox-store-pubg-is-finally-overtaken-by-mhw.21038/
Speaking of PUBG, cheating is apparently a huge problem.
They’ve banned over a million cheaters, and say it’s still getting worse. What do you guys think about these economy-based games, like CS:GO, Dota2, and PUBG? https://twitter.com/TheBattlEye/status/960278229566226437
It took 3 months, but Assassin’s Creed Origins finally got cracked.
Crazy long, considering. Think it marks an increase in future security effectiveness? Also, modern piracy is weird. https://kotaku.com/after-three-months-pirates-say-theyve-finally-cracked-1822696106
EVO’s 2018 lineup got announced, and Marvel isn’t in it.
This is the first time it’s ever not been a main game. Too bad, that gameplay looked really fun. https://www.polygon.com/2018/2/6/16983146/evo-2018-lineup-games-street-fighter-5-smash-bros-tekken-7-dragon-ball-fighterz
Podcast THING OF THE WEEK
Call of duty has been around for a long time, they are out of wars to explore, let’s help them by coming up with some new options
Call of dooties that should/shouldn’t exist:
Kaz- CoD: Saurus warfare. set in caveman era, the sentient dinosaurs rule but their ways are ancient and cruel. The time of man is at hand, dinosaurs are about to become extinct. II
Kyle – CoD: Biological Warfare. You play as a team of scientists shrunk down to combat the strangely-ethnic-looking diseases plaguing the United States of America.
William – CoD Digital Warfare – You are recruited by the American government to infiltrate Anonymous, the ‘hacking syndicate,’ gameplay is largely ‘coding’ minigames that function like mini CoD setpieces. The most notable part of the game is the ability to play previous CoD games with your buddies in Anonymous.
