Call of Duty: WWII proves that war never changes

It’s been over a decade since I’ve last played a Call of Duty game. The original release, simply titled Call of Duty, was one of my favorite shooters of that time, along with Vietcong, another less known first-person war game that focused on the conflict in Vietnam during the 1960s. Both games had a lot in common. Their gameplay that was heavily focused on playing in squads, and the shooting introduced iron sights in a realistic manner for the very first time. They also featured a lot of historical events that for the most part, helped show the trauma the people who lived through those conflicts had to endure. Games history, however, treated both franchises quite differently. While Call of Duty went on to spawn a multi-billionaire with yearly releases that sell millions of copies worldwide, while Vietcong mostly languished in obscurity, with a console...

Cartman and crew are at it again in South Park The Fractured But Whole

Love it or hate it, creators Trey Stone and Matt Parker’s South Park is over twenty years old at this point. Let that sit in for a moment. Second only to The Simpsons as the longest running animated series in the world, it has earned its way into popular culture.

An oldie, but a goodie, Skyrim is still a great addition to the Switch

Some say that great creations never truly age, and six years is a lot in terms of videogames. In Skyrim’s case, the latest on a long-running series of ports and remasters, is a great version of the venerable fifth entry to The Elder Scrolls franchise, now on the go for the first time ever, thanks to the Nintendo Switch. While it isn’t revolutionary or different in any way in comparison to any of the previous releases, Skyrim on the Switch is still an impressive achievement, considering the size, scope and complexity of the world in which the game takes place in. That’s not mentioning the fact that all of the DLC is included from the get-go, so there’s even swampy Morrowind to explore alongside the massive frozen continent home to the Stormcloaks and most importantly, dragons. Ah, I forgot everybody says those have been dead...
