WWII

Call of Duty: WWII has finally made its debut on multiple consoles. And, quite honestly, it has been a huge success despite certain business practices I don’t approve of. In fact, this game has conquered UK’s top charts in just a few days.

It appears like the return to the World War II aesthetic was a good return in terms of story. Call of Duty: WWII has generated around $500 Million Dollars in just 3 days of being in the open market.

According to the folks at Activision, the game’s income has beaten that of grand cinematic productions. Popular films such as Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok are nothing to the video game titan, it seems.

Activision also added that the game reached the highest total connected users on current generation consoles and PC in Call of Duty history. Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, provided the following statement:

Call of Duty: WWII Returns the franchise to its roots and the results are incredible, selling twice as many units in its opening weekend as last year and setting the day one record for full-game downloads on PlayStation 4.” Said Eric, who soon drew the comparison to the aforementioned films.

COD: WWII’s success is nothing short of impressive. The game certainly gained a huge attraction thanks to the return to the series’ roots. Unlike the infamous Infinite Warfare that did the exact opposite.

In fact, the only “Success” Infinite Warfare got came from the game being bundled with a remaster of the more popular Modern Warfare. A game that has been dubbed by fans of the series as the best in the franchise.

It speaks volumes about what gamers are interested in seeing when it comes to games like these. Once again, I can’t say it’s a great game considering its shady practices with Loot Boxes. But hey, nice to see the numbers growing.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
