Is The Division a Game Worth Getting?

This March, Ubisoft will be releasing Tom Clancy’s The Division, a brand new title in a semi-popular series. This game is bigger, badder, and more praise-worthy than previous titles in the series. The Division gives players access to a massive world set in NYC after a major disaster.

The Division E3

There are tons of missions that players can take on either as a solo agent or with a squad. The missions provide you with a variety of tasks such as saving people, finding special items, or just eliminating a primary target. Depending on your skill level and the gear you have equipped some of these quests will be a breeze, others will test your skill and patience. These missions often put you up against both average and challenging AI opponents.

The campaign and missions are just the beginning, though. Don’t find PvE content very challenging? No worries, you can test your skill against real opponents as well in the PvP mode. For the more competitive players, the Dark Zone is an area you’ll definitely want to check out.

The Dark Zone is a huge area inside Manhattan that gamers can go into. In the Dark Zone players can choose to group up, play solo, or even go head-to-head in fierce firefights against other agents. Before hopping you, read through The Division guide book.

While traversing this area you’ll want to play it cautiously. Death should be avoided at all costs. Unless you successfully extract from the Dark Zone without conflict, you could lose the awesome gear you may have scored from loot chests in the area. Enemy agents are able to ransack your corpse for any loot if they manage to take you down while you’re making your way through the DZ. The ranking system also factors in your deaths to determine your overall Dark Zone level. Possessing a high rank not only looks awesome and intimidating to other players, it even gives your character the ability to score rarer loot than normal. Stay alive and you’ll get rewarded. (Weapons:

Will this game be a huge success or major flop? We’ll see within the coming months. The Division will have to overcome the fierce competition of established games like Black Ops 3 and Destiny to come out a winner, though. Gamers have voiced their opinions and a lot seem to want to see The Division blow Destiny out of the water.

The Division Gameplay

According to various sources, Ubisoft does plan on supporting The Division long after launch. Multiple expansions and free stuff is quite a bit, but if Ubisoft can deliver, they could very well surpass Destiny in popularity. Both gamers and the media have taken shots at Bungie, saying they haven’t been creating enough content to keep Destiny interesting for long-time players.

Many believe that if Ubisoft can really keep up their content release schedule that Tom Clancy’s The Division could become one of the biggest game franchises ever. Many gamers are excited to get their hands on it. It was announced that an open beta will be available for the Division on all platforms in mid-February.

Ubisoft’s The Division is supposed to be available for PC and current-gen consoles in early March.

Resources for Gamers Playing CoD: Advanced Warfare

We’re not sure why but for whatever reason it’s hard to find sites that provide GOOD information about FPS games. When it comes to MMORPGs there are countless blogs and portals that give tons of awesome advice, guides, and more. But it seems like first-person shooters don’t get much love. All the news in the world is posted about them but in-depth guides for them are hard to come by.

AW Background

That being said, we decided to dig up some of the best content around the web for gamers that are playing the latest title in the Call of Duty franchise, Advanced Warfare. The game has only been out a couple of months but a few websites and bloggers have already started covering it extensively.

Below we’ve provided a list of our favorite resources for the game.

Slegdgehammer Games’ Advanced Warfare Met with Mixed Opinions

It’s been just over a month since Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the latest in the CoD series was released. While the commercials for the game show off loads of 90, 95, and 100 ratings it has actually been met with loads of differing opinions. While AW does seem like a big step forward many gamers are indifferent to the changes.

Some major gaming news blogs and other websites have given Advanced Warfare extremely generous review scores. Sure, the game is alright, but getting sky-high ratings across the board seems a bit much. Call of Duty was definitely starving for some new aspects but is everyone enjoying being able to fly around and use Star Wars like laser weapons? No, they aren’t.

Many of Call of Duty’s most dedicated fans are extremely annoyed with the additions to the series and are a bit skeptical of the future of the franchise. A lot of people wish the series would go back to historic time periods such as the WWII era. Sure, a lot of people are actually liking the ability to boost around maps and use odd weapons that fire laser beams and print ammo, but not everyone is a fan.

So how is it that Advanced Warfare (get the latest news, guides and more for AW at is getting such high review scores? Well, we already know that some major sites are bought out and their review scores often reflect relationships with the developers and publishers of games. But even some of the more trustworthy sites are still giving CoD: AW relatively high review ratings.

Metacritic gave the game an 83, a decent score, while it’s users only gave it an average score of a 5.7 out of 10. Obviously real players have a very different opinion of this new title than the industry professionals. And Activision has been rather in the dark about saying how well the game has done, too.

After years of nearly every Call of Duty game breaking sales records, we haven’t heard much about Advanced Warfare. The publisher did come out and say that it was a huge entertainment launch for the year but that doesn’t tell us much. Considering how many terrible games and movies have been released in 2014 it’s really not a huge accomplishment to hold that title. Especially when a lot of the game’s sales probably came off riding the Call of Duty name itself anyway.

When are we going to get actual sales figures on the game from Activision? Probably not anytime soon. Granted sales could go through the roof as the holiday season is just a couple weeks away. But for the publisher to be this quiet about numbers it’s probably safe to assume that Advanced Warfare hasn’t performed as well as Black Ops 2 or other previous titles.

Dead Island free on Xbox Live Today

One of the best zombie games of all time is now available for free on Xbox Live. As part of their Games with Gold program, Dead Island is 100% free to download between February 1st and February 15th for anyone that has a gold subscription to XBL. This is one of the best and newest games that Microsoft has given away for free with this program. Dead Island originally came out back in 2012.


Halo 2 Remake Possibly Releasing in November

For many people the Halo series is all about Halo Reach and Halo 4. While these are definitely advancements in the series they most certainly are not the best titles of the franchise. My absolute favorite was none other than Halo 2 for the original Xbox.

Halo 2 can almost be credited for the entire existence of Xbox Live as we know it today. Back in the day that was THE online game to play for the Xbox console. And, in my opinion, it was one of the best first person shooters ever created. Sure, it had a ton of glitches and flaws but those things also made the game massive amounts of fun.


That being said.. there’s a rumor going around that Microsoft is planning to release Halo 2 HD (essentially a full remake of the game with better graphics) this November. This is pretty exciting but, again, it is only a rumor at this time. Hopefully we’ll get confirmation in the near future on whether or not there is any truth behind it.

If it does release it SHOULD be available for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One but there is also a possibility that it’ll be exclusive to the X1.

Never played Halo 2? Here’s a glimpse at the awesomeness that was H2 multiplayer:

Xbox One Finally Gets a Discounted Price

Holy hell… Microsoft FINALLY decided to drop the price of the Xbox One… well, sort of. It’s a limited time savings and it requires that you fork over an old Playstation 3 console. But if you do that, you get a nifty $100 credit for the MS Store where you can buy a brand new Xbox One. You’ll technically be paying full price but with the $100 credit it’ll be like paying $399 rather than the original cost of $499.


In other words, if you don’t want or need your PS3 and you want to get an X1 (although you’re more likely to want a Playstation 4) you can give it up to MS and get the $100 credit. Seems like a fair deal considering a used PS3 rarely sells for $100 these days.

Oh and you have to do this somewhat soon because the $100 credit is only being given out until March 2nd which is a little more than a month away.
