Infamous: First Light brings you the mechanics and setting from Second Son, but wraps them up in a brand new adventure with a new protagonist and new powers. The hero - or anti-hero - this time is Abigail Walker, or Fetch as you may know her from Second Son. She’s the lady that unwittingly gave Delsin his neon tricks.

As a died-in-the-wool hard Apple fan, I did the unimaginable: I left my iPad and iPhone behind when I went to Germany for Gamescom, using only the Sony Xperia range of products. I not only survived, I might be slightly in love.

Geoff strode into my office, dressed in his Sunday best and enjoying a glass of 9AM Vodka Daniels. “I got a job for you,” he shouted, clearly hoping that by raising his voice he would frighten out any leftover interns who had escaped our previous purges. “We got some new hardware in, and I want you to review the Asus G750J laptop”. “But Geoff,” I started blubbering, “I can’t do it. You know I can’t do hardware. Not after the war. Not after what happened at…Macho Grande”.

When Diablo 3 first launched in 2012, the game was a mess. Here was a decade’s worth of expectations crammed into a game that was riddled with bugs, the infamous Error 37 that hampered the mandatory online-access requirements and a real-money auction house that divided fans.

For two hours, I moved a line across and around a screen, without any real idea of what on earth I was doing. And somehow, I loved it. Interesting images, eclectic accompanying audio punctuated the whimsy. This strange game, one that turns the very expectations one has of a videogame on its head, thrusts you in to a world with no explicit instruction or direction. That ended up being its very undoing.

With so many games centered around War, it's nice to see CounterSpy take a much more lighthearted approach to the subject matter. With a fantastic aesthetic and cool conceptualization, CounterSpy seemed like an impressive little indie. It's quirky and fun, but ultimately a flawed experience.

In the green corner of PC hardware, things have been fairly boring. While everyone waits for Nvidia to release their 800 series, manufacturers are tasked with re-releasing existing cards with a few extra bells and whistles to keep their business booming. These are usually reserved for some of the upper-tier cards, making a mid-range PC gamer’s life a dull affair. Except, it doesn’t have to be that way all the time.

I WAS incredibly excited when I found out that I would be the new Lazygamer intern. Little did I know that I would be forced to do all sorts of horrible things daily. I really thought the community would have my back. How could they not support the newcomer... the underdog? How wrong I was.

So you want to be a pro fighting gamer, do ya? Well ya gotta eat lighting combos and crap thunder juggles! You’re going to need hardware to match your ambitions, and with a ton of arcade inspired fight-sticks on the market, you’re going to want something that will last you for years to come! And that’s where the Razer Atrox comes in.

I’ve often let loose my particularly unpopular opinion that Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is an overrated game. That revelation’s generally met with gasps and dropped jaws, though what many seem unable to grasp is that overrated doesn’t mean bad. The Last of Us is one of the best games available for the PlayStation 3, and now, with its remastered version available just over a year later, it’s one of the best games available on the PlayStation 4.

Whether you're a PC gamer or just a normal human being, you probably spend a ridiculous among of time employing mouse and keyboard throughout the day. However, not all keyboards are the same - there is a ton of variety out there, although the Razer Deathstalker might just be my new favourite.

There’s been a missing contender in the local smartphone market for a while now. Apple and Samsung are the household names of today, with other Android smartphones taking a backseat despite their superiority. The 2013 HTC One was one of these devices, with only really tech savvy folk realising how phenomenal it was. This year HTC has given the One a bit of an upgrade with the One M8, and it’s already making a lot of noise.

It used to be a simple idea when it came to keeping time. You’d strap on a watch, flick your wrist and you’d be informed.These days however, people want more out of their gadgets. A stop-watch and a primitive liquid crystal display isn’t going to cut it anymore. That’s where smart-watches come in, small devices that don’t just keep time, but all manner of other digital information. And after a slightly awkward teething phase with the original Gear watch, Samsung is back with a better device for a new generation of people on the move.
