Review - South Park: The Fracture But Whole

Everybody know the story of South Park by now and if you don't then you should really look it up as it is an amazing story of two people who took a holiday greeting video, with paper-cut stop motion video and made it into one of the most, if not the most, important cartoon experiences since the...

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor came out of nowhere and quickly claimed its rightfully place as many gamers and gaming websites' number one game back in 2014. It was also one of my personal favourites that year. It wasn't the story that made it so compelling but the “nemesis system” which they...

WWE is not what it once was, it used to be the number one TV show, it killed of rival its rival wrestling shows WCW and ECW and became the only place for wrestling for years. But times have changed, and the UFC has grabbed most of the hardcore wrestling fans and WWE is seeing its worst years as...

Review - Unbox: Newbie's Adventure

  As far as I can tell this is Prospect Games first release, and I always find it interesting to check out a fresh developer teams first game so I jumped on the opportunity to check out Unbox: Newbie's Adventure. The title in itself really didn't tell me anything but a few gameplay trailers...

Review - Agents of Mayhem

Review - Agents of Mayhem

From the creators of Saints Row we get a new and action packed game. It is more of a crossover to be fair but putting the two up against each other you can clearly see these are two separate games. So how could this be bad? Well, the only problem is that with the success of Saints Row 3 and...

  The people behind Worms, Team 17, surprised me with the release of The Escapist and since then I have been addicted to the game. So I wasn't hard to convince when I was asked if I was interested in reviewing The Escapist 2

Review - Dishonored 2

I have always been a huge fan of the stealth-based game genre, and Dishonored was one of my favourite games the year it released. It played through it numerous times with different experiences each time and with the release of Dishonored 2 I was overexcited to once again see what this series...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Claims Top Spot in First Week

Created on Monday, 09 November 2015

 blackops3

2015 so far reveals there have never been more games released on a Tuesday (25 and counting, previous record was 2012 with 17 for the whole year), but Activision's ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ forsakes Tuesday for Friday for the first time since 2009 / 6 iterations ago.

 So 'Black Ops III' launched Friday 6th November and UK gamers had to divide their disposable income between fireworks, the Treyarch-developed first person shooter and the continued wallet-drain of ‘Spectre’ at the cinema.  However, ‘Black Ops III’ explodes on to the scene at No1 and in terms of revenue generated in week 1 (regardless of release day) ‘Black Ops III’ ranks at No14 amongst all titles.

 Compared to other Call of Duty titles this is the 7th in terms of week 1 takings, though of course all of those above it benefited from 5 days of sell-through in week 1 (UK charts run Sun-Sat).  The Gen 8 (PS4/Xbox One) transition is overwhelming with 91% of sales units coming from these 2 formats (compared to 68% for last year’s ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’).  

 

EA’s ‘FIFA 16’ climbs 1 place to No2 (-7%) and EA have the only other new entry at No3 as ‘Need For Speed’ arrives for PS4/Xbox One.  

Microsoft’s ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ drops from No1 to No4 (- 78%)  and Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ drops 3 places to No5 (-55%).  There are numerous re-entries due to various retailer promotions, most notable of which is Nintendo’s ‘Mario Kart 7’ back in at No14 (+898%).
