The Division 2 Private Beta – Endgame PvE

I think with this, it will conclude my impressions of The Division 2 beta. I could go back and do the structured PvP, I could also go in and play the other specialisations (I tested through with the Demolitionist myself, friends took the other two: Sharpshooter and Survivalist, so I saw them in action too).

The Division 2 Private Beta – The Dark Zone

I spent about 4 hours in the Dark Zone today as a duo – and let me tell you. I’m glad I wasn’t out there alone. It might just be a demo thing, but almost everyone was pretty gung-ho about going rogue and ‘testing things out’. Fortunately for us, that meant there were plenty of

What do???

With the Anthem demos behind us, and still around 9 days to go before even the early access launch — I find myself in the position of not really having anything to play. *cough* Look, no-one ever accused me of being a completionist, OK? My approach to gaming has certainly changed over the years. It

Anthem Impressions – Two Demo Weekends In

This post is more difficult than I imagined. And it’s due to more than just experience with the demo itself. There has also been a fair number of information drops since the VIP Demo. Not all of that news has been good. I’ve experienced something of a mental tonal shift in regards to Anthem too.
