Grad Theft Auto V! It’s finally, finally on PC. That’s the entire game, from the gripping story through to GTA Online that’s available for PC gamers to experience. And of course, it’s the kind of game that’ll attract a certain kind of scummy player. Specifically the kind of player who uses cheats online. Thing is, even being more indestructible than the Juggernaut can only take you so far in GTA Online. And one regular player decided to teach a hacker a lesson in ragdoll physics 101.
If I can at all help it, I want meat in the food I eat. It’s very seldom that I’ll be happy to eat something that doesn’t have protein gleaned from the corpse of a tasty animal – but there’s no way I can ever, ever resist the post-breakfast Burek pastries the Greeks (and other Ottoman influenced people!) are so fond of.
You've seen one smart phone, you've seen them all, right? Well, maybe not so much. While all the major brands seem to be copying each other on a regular basis, it can feel like it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd. The S6 Edge is certainly something different, and it might just convert you to Samsung.
I spent a large portion of the long weekend playing Diablo III. The bug really has bitten me again thanks to the launch of Season 3 (I hate you Blizzard), and I was more than happy to spend loads of hours mindlessly clicking and looting. I managed to take my Crusader up to level 70 (solo; not with the help of other high level friends) as well as accumulate some paragon levels. Overall, level 1 to paragon 30 took me around 15 hours, not the greatest time by a long shot, but not too shabby either, right? I didn’t think so too, at least until I compared my time to Dat Modz. He took his Monk from amateur to the max level in a little over a minute.
For the better part of last week I was whisked away to sunny Warsaw, Poland, for a very special visit to one of the country’s greatest exports: CD Projekt Red and their Witcher franchise. Aside from getting to visit the famed studio in person, I got a decent amount of hands-on time with the game, as well as a little time to chat with the game’s Director, Konrad Tomaszkiewicz.
If you want to explore the cosmos, it’s going to cost you some bucks. And expendable test pilots, but don’t tell their future widows that. And you’ll need plenty of cash to get around the galaxy in Star Citizen, which now has another new feature in play. So 10-4 good buddy, keep an eye out for smokies and lets hustle some freight across galactic lines!
The Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise has had one heck of a ride over the past eight months. No really, the first game received glowing praise and hit cult status, prompting the release of two sequels in the space of seven months. Heck, Warner Bros spotted the cash… er… potential, and are even making a film! If you thought that a trilogy of scary animatronic animal games and a film was more than enough, you’d be horribly wrong. A fourth entry into the gaming series has been announced.
It’s tricky to get refunds on games you’ve bought – whether at retail or through digital distribution. It’s especially tricky when the store you’ve bought it from doesn’t provide a method for refund. EA’s Origin doesn’t. At least everywhere other than Australia. They’ve been forced to change their policies by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
