There seems to be a new theme doing the rounds in the gaming community at the moment and that is that there is a large, and vocal, crowd of people who appear to just want new IP’s to fail.

So it’s an open secret that a few of the team are currently jamming Sunset Overdrive to ensure we give you lovely girls and boys a full review in time for release. It is also no surprise that we are totally locked under embargo and can‘t really say anything yet.

Halo, in my humble opinion, is the one game that brought consoles into the mainstream adult population with the incredibly well-written and orchestrated, Halo. In the end Halo became most famous for its online multiplayer but the story side has always been my favourite part of the entire series.

It’s that time of the year again. Actually it was that time last month, but our review copies only arrived late so we couldn’t bring you the breaking news that FIFA 15 is pretty much FIFA 14 with a new number on the end.

I’ve been a fan of the Canon DSLR series for quite some years now and my current weapon of choice is the Canon 600D, this is the one we use for most of our Lazygamer interviews and so far it has been a perfect combination of a great HD video camera and a static photo taker.

I stayed out of the last IesF and MSSA rubbish with girls having their own leagues because both of those organisations are stupid and don’t really understand how to help gaming in the world.

While scouring Neogaf for some entertaining news this morning I found a thread which seems to have unearthed a new campaign Microsoft is planning on releasing.

One of the most frustrating things about the changing of console generations is that you know you are going to be getting one of those fancy new consoles soon but you can’t quite stretch the budget just yet.

We all love gaming, else you wouldn’t be here, but let’s be honest for a bit. Gaming is a massively expensive hobby, not only do you need the expensive, PC/console but you also need a rocking TV screen, great sound and not to mention the small issue of the R800 games.
