Halo: A tale of red wine and mass suicide

– Charlie Braithwaite When Halo 2 came out in 2004 I remember running home from the shops with it cradled in my arms ready to spend all afternoon playing, only to find my dad using the television watching old episodes of The Sweeney.

DayZ: Destroyer of friendships

It started out like any other day in Chernarus, the sun was shining, the zombies were glitching and there was the ever present sound of gunfire in the distance.

Little did we know that betrayal was in the air. Let’s call my friends Andrey and Tony, because those are their actual names. Tony was a DayZ pro, he ...[Read More]

Check out this insane Dishonored montage

– Charlie Braithwaite Sometimes people play games until they reach a godlike level of expertise, this is one of those time. Be warned, only watch this if you are comfortable feeling very inadequate about yourself.
