Far Cry 5 Future | What Ubisoft Needs To Do

Far Cry 5 is almost upon us with a release date later this month so lets revisit this much loved series and how Ubisoft is making changes once again to a some what stale formula.

PSN Problems Downtime

When things are free, in anything in life, there is a general tolerance when things aren’t 100% with what is being offered. Get a free meal at a restaurant and, if you’re not paying for it, you’ll give it more lenience if it isn’t the greatest meal you’ve ever had. If someone gives you a great new TV for nothing, you’ll let it slide that it doesn’t have as many USB or HDMI ports that you would like it to have if you had of laid down your cash for…

The Last of Us Part II – Hype to Doubt

  Although with a release date still far away and very little chance of it being released this year, I thought I’d take some time out to discuss one of the biggest game releases that will happen in the next 2 or 3 years.
