I may not be the most talented guy around, but if there’s one thing I’m damn good at, it’s the art of creating the ultimate Mexican wrap meal. Years of research and millions of Dollars have allowed me to create the ultimate piece of South American cuisine, that is as far removed from regular wraps as Jacob Zuma is from popularity. Think I might make one tonight.
Pool. Billiards. That game where you work the shaft of a stick on some balls. On a console where the likes of Killzone: Shadow Fall and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is pushing the hardware to the purdy brink, Pure Pool might just be the next-gen game that can blow them all out of the water. Or it probably won’t
I hate to break it to you guys, but duct-taping two PS2s together does not actually equal a PlayStation 4 console. It’s been a long wait for next-gen to reach our sunny shores, but this Friday marks the start of that brand new generation of gaming. If you’re keen on attending a midnight launch to grab a PS4, here’s where you need to be.
For Christmas this year, my gift ideas are simple. A nametag with “Darryn” on it. Some comics. Maybe a new Transformers figure for my collection. But what I’d really like for Christmas is something to stop all the voices screaming inside my head. That’d be nice.
For those of you who can’t afford or find a console to play those hawt games from yesteryear on, there’s always been a morally grey area to fall back on. The emulator has come a long way since the days of the VisualBoy Advance, giving gamers a backdoor into those games. Xbox 360 and PS3 emulators have been notoriously unreliable in the past however. That could, theoretically, change with the latest consoles.
Times are changing, and with it age old traditions. Take weddings for example. The holy union of man and wife/man and man/woman and woman/man and that sexy hole in the wall is giving way to legal partnerships and unions. What a wedding needs in order to survive, is some magic. Which is what this union had bucket-loads of.
Despite the fact that I had a toenail removed today, and had enough drugs injected into my foot that it could topple an elephant, I managed to not miss a day of work. I think I have a problem. But at least I have a keepsake of that nail in a small jar of surgical spirits.
The Spike VGAs may have had a name change this year to the VGX awards, but it was business as usual for the MTV Movie Awards of gaming. There were losers and there were winners that night. Here’s the list of developers and games that walked away with top honours that night.
There were plenty of games shown at the VGX awards on the weekend, from Titanfall strutting out some new mechs through to some tantalising gameplay from Quantum Break. But out of all those big budget titles, one four man studio may have stolen the show with No Man’s Sky.
Looks like Hammond Robotics was not a branch of Top Gear after all, as those teaser videos from that fictitious company introduced two new classes for Titanfall.
I don’t think anymore words need to be said today, because if a picture speaks a thousand words, then we saw millions of inspiring ones uttered today.
If you’re reading this, then chances are that you’re either reliving some nostalgia, or want to experience one of the best Final Fantasy games ever made. Final Fantasy 8 is now out on Steam, but don’t let that old school charm fool you, because it’s a damn hard game. Fortunately, I’ve played way too much of it, and have some wisdom to share.
