For those that don't know we have a very sexy sister site, wait this just got weird.. er we have a very intelligent and attractive.. dammit. Look we write about movies as well over at www.themovies.co.za.
One of the most successful games developed in South Africa is Desktop Dungeons developed by the QCF team in Cape Town. Ever since the first day I saw this game I've been waiting for it to hit mobile and according to some recent tweets by people in the know it is about to happen in the next few weeks.
While I'm slightly addicted to my PlayStation 4 I have yet to see any reason to ever own a PS Vita, or any PlayStation mobile, again. I get more than enough of a gaming fix on the iPad and iPhone and if I'm home I'd rather just use on of the proper gaming machines.
We previously reported on the fact that MKX will likely be getting micro transactions but we didn't know exactly what they were going to be or whether it was going to be purely cosmetic purchases or the more nefarious pay-to-win option?
One of the best video game memories I have is back in the days of Quake 1 where I played for Damage Clan for a while and went on an amateur tour of South Africa playing in Internet cafes and getting stupidly drunk while pretending to be training.
So there is a rumour on the Internet that Bloodborne is a difficult game of some kind, and while that rumour is 100% true - the game is a monster to complete - it is possible to speed run the game in just 44 minutes using glitches and exploits to pave the way.
The inclusion of Kevin Spacey as a main character in the single player bits of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was a genius decision by Activision and undoubtedly helped appeal to the one or two people who hadn’t heard of Call of Duty before.
Spec Ops: The Line is still one of the best games I’ve ever played. Not for its graphics which weren’t bad but nothing really to write home about. Nor for its gameplay which was solid, but boring. But rather for its incredible story which is something that rarely happens in a military shooter.
I remember playing The Crew at Gamescom 2013 and in that perfect environment the game was a huge amount of fun. However it's a bit like Evolve in reality where unless you have a great group of friends to play with it feel a bit soulless.
So Nintendo invited 2 ladies from Playboy to their offices to try out Splatoon and as you can imagine some sections of the Internet are aghast. The number of immature sexual innuendos being thrown around by those claiming to support women are disgusting.
Hey it’s March 2015 which means that there is virtually no gaming news to speak of and as such we need to make things up. So I headed over to the always controversial VGChartz to see how they feel the console sales war is going.
My long-running court case with Colin Webster has come to its conclusion and the end result is what I believe was an appalling decision by the judge to award Colin’s team costs even though virtually everything I posted in the original article has been proven to be fact. To draw a line under this sorry debacle this will hopefully be the last article relating to Mr Webster and his actions. The following section of this article is simply fact, followed by my personal requests to those involved.
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.
