GTA Online has become more outlandish over the years, and the newest Doomsday Heist only adds to the absurdity. Through this free update, you get to fly jet packs, drive submersible cars, and kill kill clone armies. It's exciting enough that I've noticed a lot of players booting up the game again after being away for a long time, only to balk at the in-game price tags.
One of the best features of the rebooted Wolfenstein games has been its likeable cast of characters. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was full of complex resistance fighters with different experiences and opinions to hero BJ Blazkowicz. The game's new downloadable content explores the lives of other people who live and die in the alternate Nazi-controlled US '60s. Wolfenstein without BJ is still fun, but it's not as impactful.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' is now on Xbox. The console's more casual feel benefits players who prefer a more strategic, slow-moving pace, but that's in part because the game's signature jankiness is significantly jankier here -- it's hard to play ambitiously when everything from switching weapons to jumping off the aeroplane is just a little more finicky. If you were hoping for a more polished Battlegrounds experience, I'm sorry.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is getting invaded by Hollywood's decades-old slayer of Aliens, Predator, starting tomorrow and running through the beginning of January. And you thought the politics of the game were complicated already.
The Doomsday Heist is the latest free update for GTA Online and one of the biggest the game has ever received. The update adds new toys, including missile launching trucks, stealth helicopters, orbital lasers and the long awaited jetpack. The Doomsday Heist update also includes three new heists about saving the world, which eventually lead to a larger mystery about Mt. Chiliad itself.
Shortly after last week's Destiny 2 expansion Curse of Osiris came out, it became evident that players who hadn't bought the DLC were locked out of activities they'd previously been able to play. Today, Bungie acknowledged they'd made mistakes with the existing system and said they're changing how it will work.
Playing as UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson, I walk down Conor McGregor and chop away at his resolve (and face) with a blender of punches and elbows. He tries to move off the fence, but ends up walking right into a cracking blow. He's practically out on his feet. Then I knock him unconscious with... a kick to the leg.
