I want to talk about the state of Call of Duty in 2018. Another year, and another Call of Duty title is on the way. This year, it’s Black Ops 4. Now, it’s no secret to fans of the channel that I’m done with Call of Duty in general. If you want to know why, I did a video breaking down my love for the series, where it went wrong, and why I just can’t do it any more. And this years Call of Duty is more of the same. There’s no reason this game should be successful, let’s talk about why.
Atari created the demand for gaming at home with the release of the 2600 in 1977. Then Sega and Nintendo fought for control over the console market. But then Sony stepped in with a record breaking console. Although there was no catching Sony this generation, an American company was set to take center stage and shake things up in the sixth generation of home gaming consoles.
Just what we needed. Another Battle Royale game. Let me explain why Radical Heights from BossKey Productions is doomed to fail. At least it won’t do worse than LawBreakers.

I thought I was done with rhythm games for good, but that was until I saw Floor Kids. This is perhaps the most accessible rhythm game I have ever experienced. The beauty of this game is anyone can pick up a controller and play. But it’s deep enough that it will take lots of practice and improvisation to get REALLY good at.
I spent the last 3 days at PAX East 2018 in Boston. I got to see a lot of great games, and there will be tons of footage coming to the channel soon, but without a doubt the best game at PAX this year was PIXEL RIPPED 1989. I’ve been waiting for a reason to buy a VR headset, and PIXEL RIPPED 1989 is that reason I’ve been searching for. This was undoubtedly the standout of the show for me.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the best stories in the world of gaming for March 2018.
What happens when two guys try to go on a simple hunting trip in Montana? This happens. This is Far Cry 5 CoOp.
