Xmas woes as PS4 turns out to be phallus emblazoned block

  Everyone has a Christmas present tragedy story. They usually revolve around batteries not being included or getting the wrong size for the recipient, but when it comes to gaming presents things can get really tricky. Gamer sales assistants are pretty good at helping the uninitiated find what they want, but mistakes still happen. In my experience working in gaming retail, I once sold one of ...[Read More]

Let’s talk about the Disney Infinity Star Wars “spoiler”

SPOILERS for Force Awakens within. Seriously, turn back if you don’t want SPOILERS… SPOILERS! Over the last few days a rumour has been doing the rounds on the internet that a clip from Disney Infinity 3.0 reveals one of The Force Awakens biggest mysteries, who Rey’s family are. It would be absolutely mind blowing if what will probably be one of the bigger plot points of Star Wars...[Read More]

In Memoriam – Star Wars : The Force Unleashed

  It’s important to remember those less fortunate than you during Christmas, and it’s even more important to remember the less fortunate games because some unlucky bastard probably got given one for Christmas. Back in September 2008 a game came out that I’m sure many people would have found in their stockings, one that wasn’t going to make any game of the year lists, S...[Read More]

Jokes in serious mediums: Enough is enough

This article contains mild spoilers about jokes in Force Awakens, but considering this is the internet you should assume everything has a spoiler for Force Awakens these days. Okay, so not exactly a gaming only topic for this article, but the issue I’ll be writing about applies to pretty much every medium, the overuse of jokes in serious material. If you’ve seen anything written by Jos...[Read More]

The Bethesda RPG dilemma

  What most of us love about Bethesda’s RPG games is the ability to become another person. For instance in real life I’m not a female elf who can shoot fire out of her hands, but I could totally be that in Skyrim if I wanted to. It’s part of the fun of playing an RPG, imagining you are something you’re not. It’s also part of the reason people sink hundreds of hours of playtime into thes...[Read More]

The pros & cons of Metal Gear without Kojima

  We all knew that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, my personal Game of 2015, would be the last real Metal Gear game after the now confirmed departure of creator Hideo Kojima from publisher Konami. Heck, it’ll probably be the last real game from Konami since, as well as ditching talent like Kojima, they also cancelled the promising new Silent Hills project, have been accused of tor...[Read More]

New Uncharted 4 trailer possibly foreshadows death

  A new CG trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End seems to foreshadow Nathan Drake’s demise. The trailer shows the man himself talking about his legacy and what he will be remembered for as chaos unfolds around him. You can see the emotional trailer below, it’s worth watching solely for the awesome piano rendition of the Pixie’s Where is My Mind: It won’t be long...[Read More]

Garbage games of 2015

  We’ve covered our favourite games of 2015, now it’s time to talk about the games of 2015 that were either colossal disappointments or such garbage that we’ve purged them from our memory, only to have them traumatically revisited in this list. In advance we apologise for hurting anyone’s feeling, this isn’t going to be pretty. Evolve Strong start to the list, al...[Read More]

Let’s clear up the issue of spoilers

  You may have noticed that the much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out this week, and the internet promptly went nuts. The movie has unsurprisingly been smashing box office records, and has also succeeded in not being a piece of garbage ala the prequel trilogy. Suffice it to say, fans seem pleased. But a release of this magnitude, and with its marketing being so closely geared...[Read More]

Remembering the best Star Wars games

  Before the the extended universe became fan fiction and the voice of LucasArts cried out in terror before being suddenly silenced, there was a golden age of Star Wars games. Since the early 90s LucasArts have been involved in close to 100 Star Wars games, for the most part they have been good, sure there were a few every now and then that were cataclysmic piece of garbage, but most were pla...[Read More]

20 years of PlayStation

  I can remember getting the original PlayStation for Christmas way back in 1997. In fact I remember being confused by it. As was tradition in our house my parents would let my brother and I open a small present each when we woke up at an unnaturally early hour, this was to tide us over until they woke up when the sun had actually risen. On his particular Christmas we picked out a flat square...[Read More]

The game was released in Japan during September this year and in America during November, leaving plenty of Pokémon fans eagerly waiting to catch up with the rest of the world.
