Brand new Watch Dogs screenshots to make you go oooo

I’m excited for Watch Dogs the upcoming open world hacking game from Ubisoft. We have some brand new screenshots showcasing some of the size and details of the game. We've got a tonne more information on the game coming up later. 

FIFA 14 Brazil World Cup Edition–Reviewed

It’s nearly time for the FIFA World Cup to swing around again and this time it’s being held in the Samba capital of the world. Brazil.

How many consoles will be sold in this generation?

So Darryn is away testing the wares of New York City and that leaves the team a little short-handed so forgive me for absolutely stealing this idea from neogaf but I thought it was an interesting thread.

Hello nAv Gaming TV

As Zoe covered yesterday the two dominant eSports organisations in South Africa at the moment are Bravado and Energy who between them took all three of the top spots available at the Liberty LAN over the last weekend.

Ben Heck reinvents the WASD idea

I’m a huge fan of Ben Heck and his weird and wacky inventions. This latest one is Ben’s attempt at improving the standard WASD controller format for all PC games.

Granted there really isn’t anything wrong with the current system but my fingers just aren’t supple enough anymore to hit all the required keys so this idea actually appeals to me.

PlayStation 4 sales now nearly double the Xbox One

The latest NPD figures were released last week while we were all sunning ourselves for the long weekend on our private yachts paid for by the bribes from the main distributors… er I mean we were sitting in squalor and eating rodents.

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.

Hong Kong Massacre uses zombie stopper weapons

While I was blindly wandering the Internet at 03:36am this morning I stumbled across this prototype trailer for an indie game coming out of Sweden called Hong Kong Massacre.

Another quick update on our legal battle

I’ve received a few questions in public and private recently about the on going court battle that Colin Webster has launched against me. There isn’t much to say now but here is the quick update.

Watchdogs contains sex, nudity, drugs and alcohol

The latest ESRB rating for Watchdogs has been released and if you are into sex, nudity, drugs, violence and alcohol then you are welcome to pop around this weekend or else you will need to hold out a little longer to get your kicks from Watchdogs which will release soon.

A new Skylanders game to be revealed this month

Age of Empires invades your mobile devices

I loved Age of Empires, not as much as I loved Red Alert of the real Warcraft games but it was fun and I spent many hours pillaging and destroying other civilisations. So I’m going against the grain here and saying that I like the idea of Age of Empires on my iPad.

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

It’s been a long dry spell for cricket fans in the video game industry. We’ve been taunted with one or two possibly good games only for them to fail at the last hurdle and end up being as useless as Kevin Pietersen’s opinions. So will the great Don Bradman save us or are we doomed for another few years?
