THE MOST DEDICATED TEAM IN THE BUSINESS This month, the hunt begins for GamesMaster’s new staff writer. Applicants must be hard-working, talented, and utterly shameless in their use of dreadful puns. Watch this space… Robin Valentine As you read this, our editor will be in sunny LA for E3, hunting down juicy gaming scoops to serve up next issue. It’s his first time covering the infamously busy event, but of course he’s not panicking – he actually always sweats that much. If you could have any superpower… Seeing the future – that’d help with previews Rob Crossland Our tech-savvy art editor’s built himself a new gaming PC, and with its liquid cooling and three monitor set-up, it’s already putting the rest of us to shame. So far he’s enjoying the 60fps lifestyle, though we only give it…

letter of the month

Ever since Black Ops II, Call Of Duty has been impacted by its fear of becoming irrelevant. I think many will agree that the golden age of COD was 2007-12. In that space, we had the Modern Warfare trilogy, World At War, and Black Ops I and II. All brilliant games. Then people started complaining it was the same game every year. There’s truth in that, but the reason it got popular was because of the casual multiplayer experience it offered. Us fans were happy with it staying the same. But it didn’t. From 2014 on, the developers experimented a bit, but while the ‘advanced movement trilogy’ from 2014 -2016 wasn’t bad really, having all three studios make sci-fi games and release them consecutively was a bad call. And then the Infinite…

Can GM really afford to clone T. rex’s to eat people’s houses? James Williamson, Facebook I couldn’t care less about lootboxes, if people want to waste their money then fine by me. Jamie Garbutt, Facebook Got a class mate who’s spent £1000+ on FIFA, WTF! Stephen Bell, @Crusader_Stevie Death Stranding was the best E3 reveal ever. Actually no, not even the game itself, just Kojima. Walking down some stairs. To an orchestra. Ollie Reynolds, @OllieMar28 I have bought a PlayStation, every generation, and have only owned Madden on each one. Never owned or played any other game. Four consoles, one game. Jimbo Jobson, @jimbojobson I dunno if anyone else will agree, but I loved Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. The way you could swing around a city was wonderful. Rob E, @harvesterofsoro…

the royale treatment

“TREYARCH HAS JUMPED ON THE BATTLE ROYALE BANDWAGON WITH A NEW SURVIVAL MODE CALLED BLACKOUT” Once upon a time, Call Of Duty set the standard for online multiplayer games. But Black Ops 4 is perhaps the most reactive game in the series to date. Not only does its fast-paced hero- and ability-based combat owe a debt to games such as Rainbow Six Siege and Overwatch, but developer Treyarch has jumped on the battle royale bandwagon with a new survival mode called Blackout. The studio has also, inevitably, done away with the traditional linear single-player campaign. This will be sad news for some, but let’s be honest, most people buy Call Of Duty year after year to play it online. It’s a sign of the times. “We’re putting a lot more energy into…
