MOOD SWINGS #15
THQ Nordic saves the day.

MOOD SWINGS

MOOD SWINGS?

Besides being the obvious side effect to a hormonal outburst, ‘Mood Swings’ is an editorial crafted by our editor Jay Tee, alongside contributions from the JTGA team. It’s like a series of extended tweets, ranting or raving about something terrible / great that has happened in the world of gaming.

It’s a collection of random musings designed to provide a snapshot of what we’re doing, things you should be excited for, and stuff to avoid as you navigate the choppy waters of this wonderfully unpredictable hobby.

Anything, from reactions to a new game announcement, surprising breaking news, to our cat just nibbled our thumb sticks, can be found here. Each “Mood Swing” will be tagged with either a green, yellow, or red Tarp badge. This represents a visual indicator of our reaction.

CASH MONEYZ - Today’s news that THQ Nordic has swooped in and rescued the Kingdoms of Amalur IP from relative obscurity is, quite simply, very cool. I always wanted that series to have another shot at the big time, so this is a definite tick in the win column. Their steady progression of franchise absorption has seen some very interesting mid-tier last gen series gathering under their roof. The purchase of Koch Media meant that they now own Saints Row, Red Faction, and crucially for me, Timesplitters. The future is bright! - JAY TEE

An HD remaster and a current gen reboot? You bet that’s on the cards!

GREASY PALMS - The limited edition ‘grease proof’ Xbox One controller is a weird, interesting idea. The reveal trailer itself was a very self aware, in-joke filled wink at hardcore fans of PUBG, and its release on Xbox One. However, I think it’s a huge mistake making this controller in such small quantities. Only 200 have been produced, and all this will encourage is scalpers with inflated eBay listings, creating feverish demand for something that isn’t readily available. A very disappointing move, and something that could have been avoided. - JAY TEE

BETA OF WOE - The Battlefield V Open Beta isn’t in a great state. Now, quick disclaimer: I’m fully aware that these things aren’t demo’s; they’re technical stress tests (and occasionally, pre-order marketing tools). However, this is the latest in a long line of modern Battlefield’s to have wonky matchmaking, and an unreliable squad system. When you consider the fact that Battlefield V looks and feels almost identical to Battlefield 1, where these issues have already been corrected, it’s baffling that DICE haven’t nipped this in the bud. - JAY TEE

KINGDOMS OF AMALUR: RECKONING (PS3, 360, PC)

It’s a nice idea, but, this controller is… kind of ugly…

XBOX ONE GREASEPROOF CONTROLLER (XB1)

The destruction still isn’t as good as Bad Company 2.
