Video Game R&R

Modern Warfare is back, and this time we’re not calling it a reboot or a reimagining, it’s just a new Modern Warfare for a, well, modern era. Gritty, controversial, raw, and really rather pretty in the graphics department, this could be one of the games to watch out for this year – especially with source material as strong as the OG Modern Warfare. Plus, there’s cross-play support for multiplayer across all devices, and it’s looking to offer quite the experience for both single-player and competitive multiplayer fans.
