Sony were offered TitanFall, didn’t take it

I’m taking this with a bit of salt because it’s been posted up on a website I’ve never heard of and doesn’t link anywhere trustworthy. But at the same time it seems plausible, and the info apparently comes from Geoff Keighly's "Final Hours" of Titanfall - so why not take a look.

This is why we don’t require the MSSA yet

For possibly the one person out there who doesn’t know yet I’ll be clear up front. I am not a fan of the MSSA (Mind Sports South Africa). I find them overbearing, annoying and an impediment to the improvement of  eSports in South Africa.

Counter Strike virtual knife sold for R250 000

[Update] This appears to have been fake. The description in Swedish apparently refers to a different item.  Well it was fun while it lasted

Original story continues

Virtual goods being sold for real money isn’t a new thing and them being sold for ludicrous amounts of money isn’t new either. But I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that someone just paid a quarter of a million Rand ($23850) for a virtual knife in Counter Strike.

Don Bradman Cricket 14 Review

H1Z1 is a free to play, massively multiplayer Zombie game

I’m a huge Walking Dead fan but I’ve noticed in recent months that the number of fellow fans have been dropping like flies and the grumblings about zombies in games have been getting louder.

Don Bradman Cricket 14–a quickie preview

I finally got time to sit down yesterday and start reviewing Don Bradman Cricket 14. I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive as everyone I’ve spoken to about the game has got a weird look on their face and said the game's good but very hard.
