Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War finally sees the return to the setting and characters we’ve been waiting for since the first installment. With Black Ops III, there was a lackluster story that never amounted to anything worthwhile. Then we got Black Ops 4, which was great on all fronts, but it didn’t have a campaign – which was probably for the best after the prior entry. Treyarch takes us back to the 1980s, reuniting us with Mason and Woods along with some new faces and names to stop a Cold War gone hot. Cold War offers a blend of nostalgia-fueled gameplay with next-generation visuals for a true sequel to the original game.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a mouthful to say, but is pinpoint accurate in what you’re getting. This is a remaster of just the campaign for the 2009 sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Every texture has been retouched, updated, and modernized for today’s consoles and PCs that makes it feel anything but eleven years old. While its pacing is breakneck, and the story is overkill, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is still an incredible ride, even if it isn’t as fully featured as the original.
From the moment GOG had announced GOG GALAXY 2.0 back in May, I knew it was going to be something special. They promised an application that would not only be the launcher to unify all launchers, but it would also bring in your console games as well. That’s no doubt a feat unto its own, but its an achievement because they’ve done it. There’s an overwhelming sensation that there’s too many launchers to install, use, and manage — and that’s right, there are. But thankfully GOG Galaxy 2.0 handles it so well, you won’t think about the other launchers as they operate in the background. The application is in Closed Beta presently, and while it has a ways to go, all the important pieces are there to prove that GOG Galaxy 2.0 is a must-have launcher with a singular focus.
The Necromancer has been requested to be added to Diablo III, since before the game’s release in 2011 and the years that followed. As for the characters in the main roster of Diablo III, the Witch Doctor quite simply didn’t fill in the void when it was learned that the Necromancer would not be a playable character. Fast forward to 2017, and the Rise of the Necromancer Pack is here. The arrival signals concern as there’s no new quests to accompany the price of the character. The Necromancer is however, one of the best-playing caster classes in the game, and is incredibly powerful solo or in co-op.
