When Kickstarter got into its stride many local developers saw it as the perfect way to get funding from all the way here in deepest darkest Africa and while it got off to a rocky start it did for a while look like their dreams would all come true.
The Unreal Engine from Epic has powered what feels like the majority of big hitting titles over the last 8 years and now Epic have made the not-so-surprising decision to stop selling the product and rather just give it away.
I recently moved house and as much as I love my new house there is a massive problem: there is no ADSL available in the area which means I’ve been shopping around and checking out all my options - and as such I will be bringing you some reviews of alternative Internet options in South Africa.
Way back in April 2014 Don Bradman Cricket 14 was released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and I was lucky enough to review the game then on the PlayStation 3 and I really did think the game was excellent giving it a 8.7/10.
The gaming community had very high expectations for the PlayStation 4 exclusive Steampunk extravaganza, The Order: 1886. Unfortunately the game hasn't lived up to expectations with a current Metacritic average of 65/100.
A long long time ago, 2 days to be precise, Zoe posted an article announcing that Sony had allowed the trademark for The Last Guardian to lapse in America and we really all felt this was the final nail in the coffin of the joke that is The Last Guardian.
There's a great trope, taken from an episode of Happy Days, called “jumping the shark” and it’s basically the point where a story loses the plot entirely and veers off into lala land. Well we’ve just hit that point with video games thanks to the season pass for Dead or Alive 5.
Editor's note: this is an opinion piece by the author indicated and does not represent the views of the publication or its staff. I‘ve been following the GamerGate saga with great interest over the last few months but not for the reasons that most have been; divorcing Gamergate from all that harassment and looking instead at what many of those entrenched in the headless movement believe it to be about: Ethics in Games journalism. That itself is a noble pursuit, even if its current trajectory is off the mark. For me it’s been a great example of the power of media and the folly of fanatic liberalism.
[Update] Due to Eskom's blinding incompetence the matches have been rescheduled until 7pm tonight. The latest round in our Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare tournament is taking place today with one of the top matches of the round being streamed live on our twitch channel at 3pm sharp.. okay likely not sharp because getting everyone to be ready on time is amazingly difficult.
55” isn’t cool, you know what is really cool? 320” and that is exactly the screen size you can get using the new Epson TW570 projector...if you have a free wall big enough that is.
We closed the registrations for our Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare tournament last Friday only to be inundated with more registrations claiming we said they had until the 28th.
When the topic of sexism in games is brought up the shining, textbook example of where characters are overly sexualised is normally the Dead or Alive series.
Metacritic. You either love them or hate them but in the end it really doesn't matter as scoring games and having someone aggregate those scores is never going to go away.
Today is your last day to enter into our inaugural PlayStation 4 tournament where 28 (so far) teams will be challenging each other to try claim the title and the grand prize of R2000 cold hard cash.
It’s the New Year! New resolutions to be made (and hopefully not broken). But most importantly, as we all know, it’s the most anticipated year for next-gen gaming. All your wallets are going to cry; most of us definitely went way over budget with all the title than came out since late November. It’s probably a great idea to do some saving these next two months, and King Price knows how to do just that with their super cheap insurance.
