Call of Duty: WWII Reveal Trailer Released

After a solid month of speculation and leaks, Activision has officially released the trailer for Call of Duty: WWII. This title, which will release on November 3rd, will return the series to its roots.

Yesterday, Capcom released the first story trailer for Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. Along with fleshing out more of the impetus for the crossover, new characters are revealed. The biggest reveal, of course, is the reveal of the ul...[Read More]

Reviewing It Wrong: Final Fantasy VII as a Beat-‘em-Up

Couldn’t punch its way out of a bag (Note: this is a parody series where we review a beloved game incorrectly. This is not serious. Please don’t kill us!) I really don’t get why people are so into Final Fantasy VII. Honestly, the whole Final Fantasy series prior to 2016 baffles me. How can people idolize a series that gets beat-‘em-ups so wrong? I love games where you can beat people up. The...[Read More]

The Digital Revolution of Media and How it Affects Gamers

Sooner or later, EVERYTHING is going to go digital! Variety recently posted an article on their website that started an interesting discussion between the crew here at Digital Crack. The article spoke about the desire of six of the biggest movie studios to offer new-release movies for home viewing. This is not new. Last year, the proposal would offer first-run movies to home viewers who have a spe...[Read More]

The Digital Crack crew put the closed beta for Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Wildlands through its paces. Two members decided to give their impressions from two different perspectives: single player and multiplayer. Here are their impressions.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Coming to PC and Xbox One

I’ve been a huge fan of the Ace Combat series ever since the first title, Air Combat, released on the original PlayStation. I have played all the mainline series, which were exclusive to Sony consoles until Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, which was curiously only for the Xbox 360. Until now, however, the only multiplatform title in the series has been Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. That ent...[Read More]

2016 and Video Games: The Bullshit Year in Review

Every year, by the time Christmas passes, we all take stock in the year we had. Many of us look back, promise to do better next year, and look forward to a better New Year. I don’t make that promise, because I know I’m going to fuck up just as bad in the upcoming year as I did in the year I’m ending, if not worse. I’m old; I ain’t changing anything except my underwear, and even THAT can be prolong...[Read More]

Never Played: Aliens: Colonial Marines

I think it’s obvious why I avoided Aliens: Colonial Marines. It’s not an excuse, though. As readers who read my Never Played review of Assassin’s Creed: Unity may remember, I prefer to base my proclamation on a game being shit on actual experience, not just word of mouth. But the literary venom spewed towards this game was enough that I stayed away. Sometimes, trusted reviews scare you away, and r...[Read More]
