I was lucky enough to play Majora’s Mask early, and you can expect a review soon. But for now, here’s a sneak peek at what to expect for The Zelda of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is a remake of the Y2k N64 classic. The game was so big that […]

Large public betas were a tradition set for Halo games back when Bungie was at the helm of the franchise. Halo 3 started the trend with its beta in May of 2007. It packed three maps and debuted that games iconic equipment system. This continued with the Halo Reach beta in May of 2010. This […]

Destiny is a game that carries a lot of hope from gamers, developers, and publisher alike. It’s Bungie’s first major title out from under the shadow of Microsoft and the Halo juggernaut they constructed with them, and Activision has bet large on it being a hit (though maybe not quite the half a billion rumored […]

Editors Note: This is a Alpha Build and this article is definitely not an accurate indication of how the final product will be. I’ve had some time with Skara: The Blade Remains, And I must say, what I sampled is a poor example of what the team is trying to accomplish. The game is a […]

Cloudbuilt is an interesting take on the third-person parkour gameplay that was first introduced in Mirror’s Edge. I had the chance to try out the beta, and it looks to be the game to fill in the void until Mirror’s Edge 2 comes out. But it also has its own aesthetic that will provide something […]

PvP isn’t what makes or breaks the success of most MMORPGs. Despite what vocal proponents may say, it’s usually more like the icing on the cake, something to expand the audience and provide continued replay value when the PvE portion gets stale or is awaiting new content. That said, it’s an aspect of the genre […]

When The Elder Scrolls Online was first announced, the reaction was a mix of excitement and trepidation, depending on where you stood on MMORPGs as a genre, and whether you believed ZeniMax could strike a balance between what makes games like Oblivion and Skyrim such great single players experiences with the execution of a persistent […]

Wasteland 2 is the long awaited sequel to the 1988 PC game that went through Kickstarter to drive up the funds for its creation. I got to play around with the Early Access Beta, which was meant for Kickerstarter backers. Also unlike many betas, this one is structured more like a demo, only representing a […]

Ubisoft was kind enough to invite GameTactics to their Montreal studios yesterday to check out the multiplayer mode of their upcoming AAA title Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Anyone who’s played just about any Splinter Cell besides Conviction will instantly recognize the Spies vs Mercs mode and in fact the disappointment by Splinter Cell fans by it’s […]
