REVIEWS World of Tanks (PS4) Review
Modern warfare shooters are a dime-a-dozen, so why not jump behind the “wheel” of a ten-ton behemoth and incorporate strategy to decimate the enemy?

In the year 3275, the most exciting thing to do is watch people move boxes around a room. If this truly is the future, please end me now!

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Tell GR: Do Gamers Really Want New IP?

Yes, we all love Dishonored. I'm happy to see a new intellectual property selling well, generating plenty of buzz, and basically being an awesome game to play. If your game is all about sneaking around and murdering people, getting a Ninja Nick Tan seal of approval is a high watermark.

But I can't help but wonder if that's what gamers really want? Despite being critically polarizing, Resident Evil 6 has still done well, considerably so in the Japanese market place. The same can be said for XCOM's return after a long hiatus. This fall season is packed to the gills with sequels and rehashes, including two high-profile assassins. In fact, beyond Dishonored, I can't think of another new IP with an opportunity to rake in cash at retail this Fall.

It's easy to say you want new IP, but if you're not there on day 1 shelling out the cash, does it matter?

Do gamers really want new IP? And if they do, are they voting with their dollars?
