Weekly News Roundup Issue #42

AWESOME NINTENDO DIRECT ANNOUNCEMENTS

Weekly News Roundup Issue #42 - Nintendo Direct
The latest Nintendo Direct was filled to the brim with awesome announcements. There were some sequels like Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem, some completely new IP's like Astral Chain, additional content for existing games like Smash Bros, and one hugely nostalgic remake concerning Zelda. Of course, there were many other games showcased, and our full coverage of the event has got you covered on all the details.

NEXT CALL OF DUTY TO BRING BACK THE SINGLEPLAYER

Weekly News Roundup Issue #42 - Call of Duty Singleplayer
The latest Call of Duty game - Black Ops 4 decided to skip on the singleplayer content and decided that a battle royale mode was all it took to please the numerous fan base. However, it seems Activision regrets that decision a bit considering the decision to bring back the singleplayer campaign for the next installment. It remains to be seen if it's going to be another lackluster, 4-hour offering or a fully featured 1-player experience. For more details on this story, be sure to check our coverage.

METRO: EXODUS AND FAR CRY GO HEAD TO HEAD

Weekly News Roundup Issue #42 - Metro vs. Far Cry
Last week saw the release of some juggernaut franchises on the same day. But the most interesting head to head was in the form of two first-person games - Metro: Exodus and Far Cry: New Dawn. Both appeal to a very different group of gamers. One is a more immersive, story-driven experience, and the other is a more sandbox, over-the-top playground. Which one should you pick? Metro or Far Cry? Our reviews got you covered.

APEX: LEGENDS PLAYER BASE IS THROUGH THE ROOF

Weekly News Roundup Issue #42 - Apex Legends player base
Apex: Legends continues its meteoric rise to the top of the battle royale food chain. The latest news concerning this phenomenon is the fact that it surpassed 25 million players in the short time since its release. In response, the developers plan on heavily expanding the game and featuring even more special events for players to enjoy. You can also check what we thought of the game in our detailed review.
