It Is Not Too Late To Get Into Titanfall 2
I know that I have spent a lot of time talking about Call of Duty Black Ops IIII and Battlefield V lately and with good reason too. However, I was out and about today and found that you can purchase Titanfall 2 for around five bucks!
Titanfall 2 is one of those games that I feel was criminally overlooked when it was released and also now. The first Titanfall that was an Xbox exclusive was a fine game, but Titanfall 2 expanded on it in every way possible…….. and I would go as far to say it is one of the best first person shooters of this console generation!
I am not exaggerating here either, Titanfall 2 does what it does so well that I am having a hard time thinking of any negatives. It is a game where you play as a “jockey” who can run and zip around the maps in some serious style. This though is just one aspect of the Titanfall 2 gameplay. You see you can also call in these huge mechs that are called Titans. These, as you would expect, have some heavy duty firepower, but Titans are also far more nimble than you would think.
Titanfall 2 has plenty of fun multiplayer modes and I fired up my Xbox One version today and had no trouble finding a game at all. I would assume that PC and PlayStation 4 are exactly the same so do not worry about the community being dead. As well as the awesome multiplayer action. Titanfall 2 has a tremendous single player campaign that I guarantee is way better than you will be expecting.
Sadly Titanfall 2 came out at a bad time and it did not get the attention it deserved. However, as it can be found for dirt cheap this is a game that you have to have in your collection.

Star Wars Battlefront II A Year Later
I am a huge Star Wars fan and play most of the games. When DICE rebooted the Battlefront series I was excited. Even though that first game was a rather bare-bones experience, I had fun with it. Battlefront II though looked like it was going to be awesome….. then just before release rumblings started.
Battlefront II came out a little over a year ago and I thought it would be fun to look back on it. It was one of my most wanted games of 2017. However just before release when sites were giving review copies. Word started getting around about how messed up the progression and unlocking system was. Some guy worked out that to unlock a character like Darth Vader you were looking at 40 hours of gameplay! Add to this the crazy loot box system where items that can give you an edge in battle were and Battlefront II felt like a game that was all about getting more money out of you.
I cannot think of another game that was dragged over the coals as much as Battlefront II was for its unfair policy in regards to Microtransactions. Locking some of the most popular characters behind a paywall sucked!
It was a damn shame too because Battlefront II is a fun game. The single player story mode was a blast and something that I really enjoyed. The game looks phenomenal and still is one of the best looking first person shooters around and the new game modes were all a lot of fun to play too.
EA and DICE did change things so that the progression was much better, the DLC was free and they have added a ton of content to the game since it launched. They have tried to do the right thing, but they only did this because they had no choice. I cannot think of another triple-A game that had this much of a negative response. It was so bad that there were memes going around saying that EA was so greedy and screwed up so bad that the broke the industry!
I think that Star Wars Battlefront II is a great game if you love Star Wars and it is a solid shooter even if you are just a passing fan. I have found that it is possible to have a great time with the game, without spending any money. It will be interesting to see if we get a Battlefront III in 2019 after the controversy this one had.

Battlefield V Microtransactions Are Nearly Here
EA may have claimed that the reason they did not have Microtransactions in Battlefield V was that they wanted players to just “experience” the game. However, we all know they held off from them due to the backlash they got with what they tried to pull with Star Wars Battlefront II.
Well as I write this the Microtransactions are just a few weeks away. You can on some sites, pre-order your Battlefield V currency already. It looks like it is going to be priced at 4.99 for 500 currency and go all the way up to 49.99 for 6,00 currency. I am not a fan of Microtransactions, but these prices are in line with what other games are charging.
EA has stated that the Microtransactions will not be allowed to purchase anything that will give players an advantage in battle. I think this is a good thing as it was one of the things that many players felt was unfair about Star Wars Battlefront II.
Company Coin is still going to be in the game. You can earn this by playing the game, doing daily challenges as well as taking part in special missions that are going to be coming. This means you can still get some cosmetic items without spending any money. So if you are down for the grind, you can get some of what you want without having to open your wallet.
I will not be too harsh on the folks at EA for this one. Most shooters these days have Microtransactions and we all knew that they were coming to Battlefield at some point. At least they are just for cosmetics so at the end of the day if you do not want to spend any more money it is not going to affect your experience.

Looking Forward To Call of Duty 2019
I think that the Call of Duty series is on a real roll. Since Ghosts (which is one of my least favorite games in the series) Activision and the three development studios have been knocking it out of the park.
Black Ops III, Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare, WWII and Black Ops IIII have all been games that I have had a lot of fun with. We know that 2019 is once again Infinity Wards turn at the helm. Last time out they gave us Infinite Warfare which while it divided the fanbase, I loved. The multiplayer was awesome, Zombies was great and the campaign was truly amazing.
So I am very excited to see what they get up to next. There have been a few rumors floating around and there was that job listing they posted which indicated that this would be a next gen game. There is also the talk that this could be another Modern Warfare game which I am sure people would go wild for.
While I loved the futuristic, Infinite Warfare, I am sure there is no way that they would go too futuristic again due to the mixed response that game got. A Modern Warfare 4 would be a very safe bet and something that most of the fan base would get behind. Thanks to the remaster of Modern Warfare, it is fresh in people’s minds.
With Black Ops IIII being such a huge hit, I am sure that Activision will want to leave it as late as possible to announce the next Call of Duty game as they will not want anything to take the attention away from Black Ops IIII.

Demons Are Getting Slain In 2019
There are some great shooters coming in 2019, but for me, the big deal and the one I am really hyped for is Doom Eternal.
I love Doom and even I was not expecting the reboot to be as awesome as it was. Doom Eternal is the sequel and it appears to be doing what most good sequels do. That is give us more of the same, but kicking things up sever notches.
One of the things that I think looks really cool about Doom Eternal is the grappling hook mechanic. You already feel like an unstoppable badass (well unless you get swarmed or play on the higher difficulty) and being able to zip around the map like you are freaking Batman is going to be great. Not just for the combat, but I think they will also use the grappling hook to create some tricky puzzles and platforming sections.
The game is set on Earth which has been overrun by demons, there was also that rumor that heaven would have some part to play in Doom Eternal. I for one think this sounds very interesting and it would certainly be something I would love to see from a story point of view. While there are some cool new looking demons in the game, some of our old favorites are returning and they have been given a horrific makeover.
I really wish the folks at Bethesda would be a little more open with what is going on with Doom Eternal as they have not been all that forthcoming when it comes to news on the game, but without a doubt, Doom Eternal is one of my most wanted games of 2019.

Looking At Fallout 76 and Battlefield V’s Disappointing Sales
While I am not trying to sound like a know it all here, I knew that the tail end of 2018 was going to see some games struggle to find an audience. There were far too many huge releases in a short period of time for them all to do amazingly well.
We all knew that Battlefield V was not meeting its sales targets as it had its price slashed in half roughly a week after release. Fallout 76 also is suffering a similar fate, although a large portion of that can be attributed to the fact that not many people actually asked for Fallout 76 and it was a bit of a mess when it was released.
Battlefield V managed to sell around 1.9 million copies. Let’s face it that is no small number and many smaller studios would kill for those kind of sales. EA though are less than happy as this is around 60 percent less (in terms of physical sales) of what Battlefield 1 sold during the same time frame when it was first released. A 60 percent drop is no small number so EA must be taking this very seriously.
Fallout 76 is fairing even worse. It has reportedly sold around 1.4 million units (this number from what I can tell is for its digital sales) this is down a massive 80 percent from what Fallout 4 sold! To be fair, many Fallout fans were not interested in what Fallout 76 was offering before it was even released. It got worse though as the game for some people was near unplayable thanks to all of the glitches it has.
While I cannot comment on Fallout 76 as I have not played it. I still think that Battlefield V is a fun game and one that is worth playing, especially now as you can get it for a very cheap price. You have to wonder how these sales are going to affect both franchises moving forward.

Some Of The Best Light Machine Guns & Assault Rifles In Call Of Duty Black Ops 4
I have been having a blast playing Black Ops 4. While I have been enjoying actually playing the game I have also had a lot of fun getting into the community more and delving deeper into the game. For example, I have found it very interesting looking at the stats for the different weapons in the game.
I am more of a run and gun style player so I thought I would start by taking a look at the LMG’s and rifles that Call of Duty Black Ops 4 has to offer.
VKM 750: This is the most powerful weapon in this class and it is an LMG. It has the highest base damage and headshot damage. The base damage is 62 and the headshot damage is 68. This means that it takes three shots no matter where you hit to kill your opponent.
Titan: This is another LMG and the second most powerful. The base damage is 46 and the headshot damage is 59. So three headshots will take a guy down and four body shots will take them down. While it is not the most powerful, I actually really like this weapon and thanks to being quicker than the VKM 750 I actually think it is a better gun.
Rampart 17: Now if you ask me the Rampart 17 is the best assault rifle in the game so far. It has a base damage of 46, headshot damage of 50 and the fastest time to kill (with a headshot) of any gun in this class. Four body shots and three headshots are what is needed to kill an enemy.
These are just three of the weapons in this category. I know that the VKM 750 has the most power behind it, but I really do prefer the Titan as it is faster.
