The Division: Left Hand Fail

The Division: Left Hand Fail

According to Scientific American, 15% of people are left-handed, and males are twice as likely to be left-handed than females. Also, according to research conducted by Dr. Nick Cherbuin, lefites are better at handling large amounts of stimuli, making them naturally better at playing video games. With this in mind, it’s clear why Ubisoft decided to cater to this segment group by adding the option of switching the keybindings to left-handed. Regretfully, their efforts are in vain. Their solution is to simply offer a streamlined option to remap the keys according to what they THINK southpaws require. This option utilizes [...]

The Division: Fun despite Ubisoft’s best efforts

The Division: Fun despite Ubisoft’s best efforts

In one short week (or less, depending when you read this), the tactical 3rd person shooter/RPG/open world game Tom Clancy’s The Division will be hitting shelves and digital storefronts worldwide. For those of you who’ve been living under a rock for the past four years, here’s the deal. The Division is a curious undertaking. It was originally planned to be more or less a sandbox MMO in the same style as Bungie’s much-maligned Destiny was intended to be, and The Division has been through just as many feature cuts, revisions and delays as Destiny. But it’s still somehow managed to keep the interest of Console and PC gamers alike, [...]

The Division: Faction Facts

The Division: Faction Facts

“When our city started to collapse, the dark side of humanity took control of the streets.” Crisis situations bring out the best of people….and the worst.

The Death of Co-Op?

The Death of Co-Op?

Over the years we’ve seen cooperative elements in video games evolve and even transcend our wildest dreams. There is no doubt that this trajectory will continue, and gamers will be astounded time and time again with rich co-op features and ever elaborate game play modes. For clarification: cooperative games are in and of themselves not going anywhere anytime soon, but rather we as gamers will be hard-pressed to actually enjoy cooperative games with friends simply due to the over-saturation of the co-op market. Back in the day there were only a hand-full of games that were truly co-op games in [...]

Do The Division & Siege Share the same Universe?

Do The Division & Siege Share the same Universe?

-Or, The Division & Siege Mash-up! By no stretch of the imagination is it too far fetched that both Tom Clancy’s The Division and Tom Clancy’s Siege share the same universe. Obviously from a time line perspective, story elements from The Division wouldn’t be in Siege due to the fact that The Division centers around one particular event and the consequences of the aftermath. But on the flip side, if anyone was to be prepared for the downfall of western civilization and the restructuring of society, then Rainbow Six Siege operators are your go-to guys and gals.  It would stand [...]

The Division Beta 1st Impressions

The Division Beta 1st Impressions

Tom Clancy’s The Division beta began yesterday for us PC gamers, among much anticipated fanfare and apprehension. How would the servers hold up? Would the graphics downgrade turn us off? No. As far as the internet is concerned the servers have held up as well as can be expected and even though in beta, it is a beautiful looking game. After loading up and getting into the game, one is taken back with how nice everything looks. The weather effects and worn down city-scape drop you smack in the middle of a recently virus ravaged Manhattan and the designers/devs (the [...]
