    Paizo Posts New Pathfinder Battles Preview

    1 month ago - By Tabletop Gaming

    The next set for Pathfinder Battles is soon to hit stores. I love having good miniatures for my game sessions, as it really does add some great visuals and helps the players see what's going on. In this particular preview, we get a look at the different animals that will be in the set, along with a new ranger figure.

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review: a polished, pulsating battle royale | EuroGamer

    1 month ago - By N4G

    EuroGamer: "So back to Blackout, and even as I'm writing this I'm craving wingsuiting, once again, into the fray. The more I think about it the more impressed I am with Treyarch's execution: there's a polish here that PUBG can't cope with and shooting Fortnite can't hope to emulate. But gone are the days when Call of Duty set the agenda. I remember the series' water-cooler zeitgeist, when the Modern Warfare campaigns were redefining the video game set-piece and competitive multiplayer rewrote the FPS rulebook with perks and scorestreaks.

  • Black Ops 4 Solo Player Review - Cram-Gaming

    1 month ago - By N4G

The reason being, an attempt to streamline the game to suit those who enjoy competitive play. However, its not all doom and gloom for solo players looking for some action. Parts of the package remain wholly enjoyable for those avoiding the multiplayer which we will look at in this Black Ops 4...
