Save Game’s Dragon Age Cocktails – Gather these and venture forth

If you’ve been playing Bioware’s latest installment in the Dragon Age series, you’ll know how difficult it is to tear yourself away from Dragon Age: Inquisition. However, if there’s going to be one reason to stop venturing through the Hinterlands, one reason to have you pause whatever romance you’re attempting with a particular party member, one reason to stop collecting Elfroot, we hope the allure of pairing Dragon Age party members with alcoholic beverages will be that reason.

Halo 5 Beta: the Good, the Bad, and the Meh.

Halo-5-banner

  It’s fairly safe to say that no franchise has had more of an impact on the FPS genre over the last decade than Halo. But it’s also safe to say that the series isn’t what it used to be. No longer the undisputed king of online FPS multiplayer, the series has fallen behind more modern shooters, and alienated longtime fans by trying to be more like its competitors. Halo 5: Guardians is being billed as a return to form by its developers, and they’ve released an early beta to prove it. So does the game live up to the […]

IMG_1548

EB Games put on the newest version of their games Expo this year, starting for most on October 3rd, and running through until October 5th. I went along to do coverage for Save Game, but the truth is I would’ve went regardless. The first time I went was Expo 2012, and due to not being in the neighbourhood last year, this was my second chance to attend. I can’t compare with how it might have been last year, but there was a definite shift in atmosphere over that two year period. The early throw at the event felt empty in […]

Appreciating Destiny as an FPS (It’s All About Loot)

Destiny_20140918215758

Destiny has been likened to a lot of things, with the most common opinion dubbing the game as an MMO. Personally, I’ve thought of it as a blend between Halo, Borderlands and Diablo III. Halo, well, because Bungie. Borderlands because this game was one of the first to blend the first person shooter genre with role-playing mechanics, complete with class systems, levelling and—of course—bountiful loot. And finally, Diablo III because of the cooperative style story missions of the game. Sure, players can brave the hordes of enemies alone, but the appeal of both Destiny and Diablo III that keeps drawing […]
