Friday is finally upon us, which means it’s time for your Mandatory Gaming Fails of the Week round-up. This is where we cram together all of the big video game fails that happened over the last seven days, and give them the spotlight that they deserve (but probably don’t want). If you find yourself wanting more content like this, be sure to visit Mandatory.com. But now, let’s dive into those fails!
The Last of Us 2 was planned for a 2019 release, but it has been pushed back to 2020, according to comments from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier.
Tank Battlegrounds has popped up on Steam. Its screenshots and gameplay footage look suspiciously similar to Battlefield 1942. With the game having only just appeared on the storefront, it’s a little too early to say whether Tank Battlegrounds has gotten away with its copy-and-paste job.
Western fans of the Tencent MOBA Arena of Valor will be sad to hear that the publisher is allegedly abandoning development of the game. Controversies have plagued the title from the get-go, and now seem to have finally left it tired and defeated. (Eastern Honor of Kings is still going to be supported, however.)
In this GameRevolution feature, we compiled a list of multiplayer communities that died soon after launch. Sometimes a game can’t give that initial good first impression, leading to players abandoning it.
It had the potential to be great, but Little Friends: Dogs and Cats ultimately failed, scoring a low score in our review. Daily level caps, dull mini-games, and limited interactions with pets were a few of our main criticisms.
