KitGuru Games: Overwatch 2 – the sequel nobody asked for

Just as promised, the Overwatch 2 multiplayer beta went live last week. We're still a year or so away from release, but the game is in a playable state and there is a small amount of new content to boot, including new maps and a new hero. The game is now 5v5 instead of 6v6, removing one tank character from each team, the biggest balance change to Overwatch since its inception. With all of that in mind, is there enough here to justify a full sequel, or should this have been a revamp for the original Overwatch instead?

KitGuru Games: Fortnite’s fundamental flaws have been fixed

Fortnite launched as a fledgling Battle Royale game, and for years Epic Games consistently added new content to an ever-evolving title. They needed to do this because, to be frank, Fortnite fundamentally did not feel good to play.

Thanks to this collaboration, you could now spend real money to go to a digital shop to buy a digital Fortnite x Balenciaga hoodie, and then back in the real world spend real money on a real version of a digital hoodie which you already spent real money on. Don’t worry though, the hoodie only costs you $725."

KitGuru Games: Death Stranding is the BEST open world game EVER

With Death Stranding: Director’s Cut arriving today, I have decided to take a look back at the game, and will make the argument that Death Stranding is in fact one of the smartest and most involving games I have ever played in terms of the gameplay, making it in my opinion the best open world game, and one of the few that actually deserves to be an open world.

KitGuru Games: Halo Infinite Preview – did 343 finally get it right?

After a middling reception to campaign gameplay in 2020, 343 Industries came back with a bang this summer, revealing Halo Infinite Multiplayer for the first time. Better yet, the studio was ready to begin public playtesting right away, leading to a Technical Preview last weekend. I was fortunate enough to get an invite and after spending several hours in multiplayer matches, I’m pleased to say that so far, Halo Infinite is looking to be a winner.

KitGuru Games: Resolution Doesn’t Matter (Anymore)

There once was a time when console generations were defined through the resolution by which the console could output at. One of the biggest selling points of the Xbox 360 and PS3 was the fact that these systems were capable of outputting games in HD. Yet, as consoles support higher and higher resolutions, we have seen developers focus less on offering games at such resolutions, instead using new rendering techniques to create what may be the start of the post-resolution gaming experience...
