Paige FTW: ‘Pokemon Masters’ Has Strategy In Spades

Pokemon Masters is what Pokemon Go wanted to be. The more battle-centric of Nintendo’s forays into mobile Pokemon landed with an invigorating splash last month.

New multiplayer requires plenty of teamwork

This is how you ruin a co-op experience in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. My teammates are running around like an unbridled mass of chaos and stupidity running into a gated facility inhabited by soldiers and drones armed to the teeth.

Paige FTW: The Clean Ending

We always want the “good” ending. We want the ending where everyone lives, where everyone is happy, where the villains get their comeuppance. We want the route where we didn’t have to sacrifice our friends. We want everything to be tied together neatly, cleanly, with a pretty bow.

Logitech G Pro X is a complete package for gamers

Big ear cups, a metal frame and leather headband: Those key features make up some of the best gaming headsets on the market. It’s a build that’s been tried and tested by several companies to great effect. Beyerdynamic, Corsair and Sennheiser all have a take on the design, but it’s that Kingston popularized it with the HyperX Cloud.

Paige FTW: ‘Three Houses’ Offers Triple The Strategy

The revival and renaissance of Fire Emblem has seen the series meander into rather odd directions at times from its classic routes — two titles devoted to breeding your army to create the perfect super soldiers, for instance — but Three Houses is a magnificent return to form, with precisely the right amount of innovation […]

The return to top-down, grid-based Zelda reminds me of two true gems of the early 2000s: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages.

Twin sisters battle Nazis in fictional Europe

The Wolfenstein franchise continues to evolve with the release of Wolfenstein: Youngblood which introduces multiplayer mode. The co-op game lets players choose to take on the role of Jessie or Zofia Blazkowicz, twin sisters who travel to France in search of their missing father. Helped by their childhood friend, Abby, the duo dons power suits and raise hell in an alternate Europe where the Nazis have taken over the world.

Paige FTW: The Joy Of Planning

Sometimes, the best part of playing a game is preparing to play the game. Fire Emblem: Three Houses is out now for Nintendo Switch. As a huge, unabashed fan of the series since its American debut on Game Boy Advance, I am keen to sink my teeth into what appears to be a very meaty game.

Multiplayer game offers variety, connectivity

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare returns to the era of fighting in the modern era, touching on present-day conflicts and scenarios. But while the goals for single-player have been established, it’s not time to move on to what the game’s multiplayer has to offer.
