PUBG Review: It shouldn’t be this good.

December 21, 2017 Conor 0

PUBG as a game shouldn’t work. It’s a multiplayer only game that requires around 100 players for a match. It looks bland as white rice. There’s fundamentally no narrative, no story. To start a game is to commit to a single 30 minute time sink where 99 players are going to lose. This game should have empty servers, critical panning and a bunch of postmortems to dissect exactly how bad of an idea it is.   Yet it’s easily one of the most engrossing games I’ve played in a long time.

Even to this day, I’m still kind of stunned that Machine Games Wolfenstein: The New Order is quite this well written and designed as a game. Wolfenstein is the literal grandaddy of shooting games.

You shoot them till they fall over.

Geek Errant Reviews: Battlefield One

DICE and their Battlefield series have a reputation in gaming. Above all else, they create incredibly authentic experiences. Not realistic. No. Other studios make realistic games, your ARMA, your Squad and Project Reality. They are fiddly, demand your sole attention and require detailed focus on perfect simulations of suppression and firefights. Battlefield games capture the feeling of those things. With a decent headset and a little suspension of disbelief, you believe in what you’re playing.
