Any publisher can make a game, a good publisher can make a good game, and a great publisher can make several great games. When the end of the year comes, sites and fans help determine what developers and publishers made the best games. The first of these is The Game Awards, which revealed yesterday nominees in a vast array of categories. And one of the top publishers to come out of these nominations was Ubisoft. For they had five games nominated across six categories. First up is the surprise hit of the year in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. This game got nominated for “Best Strategy Game” and “Best Family Game”. Not sure about that last one, did they not see the swearing robot? A more recent release was Assassin’s Creed Origins, which got nominated for “Best Action/Adventure Game”. 👏 Congratulations to our teams, who picked up 6 nominations at this year’s @TheGameAwards!

Every time the end of the year approaches, the minds of gamers and critics alike turn their minds to the question of “what was the best game in…”, and many answers are brought forth. The first major Game of the Year event will be The Game Awards on December 7th, and yesterday, the full list of nominations was released. In the category of “Best Ongoing Game” (referring to titles that have been constantly updated and played), Overwatch found itself nominated. Though a step down in some ways (as the title won many literal Game of the Year awards after its debut last year), it’s still a very interesting category to be a part of, and it is well deserved. For the team at Blizzard have been hard at work implementing many new things into the game. Not the least of which is new characters, new worlds, new modes, and many, MANY, new balance patches and updates. Now, the fun thing about The Game Awards is that it is you the fan who gets to decide the winners, … [Read more...] about Overwatch Nominated For “Best Ongoing Game” For The Game Awards

The Game Awards 2018 is here, and going live in a few hours to celebrate the best games of 2018. Just like the year previously, this year’s line-up of GOTY contenders are solid and difficult to separate. Each offers something unique to players, and they do have some similarities, for instance, adventure and RPG. Therefore, let’s inspect the leading nominees and determine who deserves to win the Game Awards 2018’s Game of the Year prize. Marvel’s Spider-Man While some may be surprised to see Spidey on the short-list, most of the gaming world didn’t especially Marvel fans. Sony has been teasing players for ages about a Spider-Man exclusive game for the PS4 and this year saw its release to the masses. It sold well, and continues to sell as it’s a household name, but it’s not a shallow game either, as previous superhero titles in the past from Marvel tend to be.
