It’s been a year of ups and downs for Counter-Strike. There’s been scandal, hacking, drama, and lots of other words with bad connotations! On the plus side though, it could get its very own International-like tournament similar to Dota 2 in 2015. It wasn’t all doom and gloom this year anyway, there were some outstanding moments!

I love JRPGs, but the translated voice actors are often horrible. You just need to play Final Fantasy X and listen to those awful voices and laughs to realize that localization isn’t always a smooth process for Japanese games. Luckily, it seems the latest Final Fantasies have some excellent voice talent on board.

I had my target locked on. The wind was minimal. Compensation for drag was applied. Flushed my toilet to check for any signs of the Coriolis effect. Finally, that damn Pekingese dog that would not stop yapping would be silenced, and I’d have the book deal that I so richly deserved.

Tomorrow is my birthday! That's right, I'm officially changing decades and I can't wait. To celebrate, I'm going to be binge watching Homeland and playing Dragon Age in my PJs all day.

It's that time of year again, when the jolly red fat man breaks into our houses, steals our whiskey and eats all the cookies.

When I read this article that Hideo Kojima's game of the year was a random mobile game, I had a small giggle to myself and carried on with my day. But the premise of the game stuck with me, and I couldn't help but buy it, and now I'm ever so glad that I did.

Devil May Cry 4 is a polarising game, even almost a decade after release. But it was actually pretty briliiant, when you think about it

Hatred launched on Steam Greenlight only to be taken down within hours by Valve themselves. Is it justified, or is censorship coming to Steam?
