Marvel’s Avengers: Next Patch Will Fix Over 1,000 Player-Reported Issues

By tracy

Marvel’s Avengers 1.3 patch addresses over 1,000 player-reported issues, Crystal Dynamics has announced.The patch notes can be read in full on the Marvel’s Avengers website, where the development team issued a short statement thanking the community for its “patience and support” throughout the game’s first two weeks of launch.

The 1,000+ issues addressed by the V1.3.0 patch include everything from “progression stoppers to small graphical fixes,” and address problems with the game’s combat, user interface, matchmaking and more. Crystal Dynamics has also suggested a few workarounds to some known issues in the game, which can be found in this Reddit thread.Future updates for the game will focus less on bug fixing and will instead “integrate more quality-of-life adjustments and feedback-driven features/tuning.” Crystal Dynamics plans to flesh out Marvel’s Avengers with the community in tow, in order to nurture the service game ahead of the extra heroes and content coming in the near future.

You can check out our review of Marvel’s Avengers here. We awarded the game a 6/10, noting that it offers a “fun and endearing superhero campaign” that is unfortunately tied to a “repetitive and unrewarding” loot-based post-game. We’ve also got some exclusive Marvel’s Avengers

eFootball PES 2021 Season Update Review

By tracy
Season update. Two words that succinctly sum up football fans’ years of frustration with both PES and FIFA, and describe what might ironically be the most meaningful innovation in football games for years – or at least lead to it. But is this year’s PES actually worth buying? It’s a more complicated question than it seems.You see, while Konami chips away at its vision for next-gen football arriving next year, PES 2021 arrives as an unapologetic stop-gap release, priced significantly lower than usual (including an additional 20% discount for PES 2020 owners) and offering distinctly fewer new features than you’d expect, even for a franchise with such a relentless annualised release cadence. The graphics? They’re the same. Controls? They’re the same too. Menus? Okay, there are some new background pictures, but you can see what I’m trying to say. This is, in no uncertain terms, a collection of updated squads, kits, and whatever Paul Pogba’s latest misadventure with peroxide might be.

Which is what both galacticos of the football franchise world have been accused of, year on year, since time immemorial. At least PES 2021 (or eFootball PES 2021 Season Update, as it’s absurdly calling itself this year) is straight

Crapshoot: The horny surgeon sim called Biing! for some reason

By tracy

From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column about rolling the dice to bring random obscure games back into the light. This week, sex may sell… but can it cure appendicitis? And can it ever hope to take over from Google as your search engine of choice?

Biing’s intro begins in the year 2156, with mankind facing extinction at the hands of an intergalactic evil in a time of dread. As civilians scream and run in terror, a fleet of battlecraft called X37-2-in-1 Strike Ships close in on their goal… EARTH. The evil Athros, Ruler of the Universe appears in all his cloaked majesty, kicking off an apocalyptic attack, and more importantly, kidnapping the beautiful anime-style Princess Pinkcheeks. But! The last remaining Earth hero steps forth, fighting back in a 2D battle that looks at least a little like the old NES shooter Lifeforce. Will he be able to defeat his foe?

No. No, he won’t. Because Biing is an erotic hospital management sim.

Things get considerably stranger from there.

Saying that the German gaming industry leans towards incredibly anal, micromanagement-heavy strategy games and deeply surreal porn is, obviously, a gross simplification of an entire nation’s output. Sometimes

Hades Review – The Highs And Lows Of Repetition

By tracy

Developer Supergiant Games is known for creating titles with rich narratives and sophisticated themes, and one of the great triumphs of Hades is how those elements are seamlessly integrated into a roguelite structure. Through a seemingly limitless array of character interactions and plot progression, Hades seeds its storytelling over many hours of repeated runs, as you lead your character along one attempted escape from hell to the next. In addition to weapon and character upgrades, new story insights are among the most satisfying rewards. But that also means that you’ll be eager to see those plot threads resolve, and to do that, you should prepare for an especially long road.

Zagreus is the son of mighty Hades, who rules the realm of the dead with a barely controlled anger only matched by his insistence on total control. He’s the definition of an overbearing father, and Zagreus’ desire to strike out on his own feels as much like a family drama as the retelling of a familiar mythology. His quest to find a mother he’s never known brings him into contact with a who’s who of Olympus and the Greek ancient world, including Zeus, Athena, Achilles, and Medusa. The constantly shifting
