There’s no doubting that the controllers from both the PlayStation family and Xbox family have changed over the years, more so the Xbox family however did you ever notice that the spacing and size of the PlayStation buttons hasn’t changed in twenty years?
Remember when Activision decided to take three 99c mobile games, put them on console and charge you $40 for it? Yes, they actually had the gall to repackage Angry Birds for consoles, add in some arm waving and charge way more for it than logic and sense dictate. They recently did it again, with Angry Birds Star Wars. It looks like they’ll be doing it one more time.
This year’s Call of Duty is the first in quite some time to not be heaped with lavish critical praise which suggests to some that the series is running out of steam. Many have bemoaned the copy and paste nature of the annualised games for years, but despite that Call of Duty has had an undeniable quality or some sort of spark – which critics feel is lacking a bit with Ghosts. Doesn’t matter to Activision though.
Earlier his week saw the release of the China Rising DLC for Battlefield 4, which as excited some players – but left many others feeling cold. the reason? The game they bought last month still isn’t working properly, regardless of the platform. As a result, DICE has now put expansions for the game on the backburner, to get the game that they’ve already released working properly.
The latest issue of Game Informer has dropped, and thanks to the magic of it being PRINT, it had plenty of details on the upcoming star-based trooping game Destiny from Bungie. Do you want to know more?
Right now, the Xbox One’s system software isn’t quite as fluid and functional as it should be. Its friends, party and chat system is effectively broken, and the standalone apps that replace basic, intrinsic functionality that users were accustomed to on the Xbox 360 make things slower and more cumbersome than they should rightly be. It’s going to get better.
So after the absolutely disgusting debacle that was Ashes Cricket 2013 it looks like us cricket fans are going to be saved by the great Australian cricketer, Don Bradman.
I love Steam, and my backlog over there is extensive. However, I still believe that we need to support retailers or eventually we will be completely dependent on digital distribution. Over at Kalahari, they're running a massive sale with some prices rivalling that of Steam.
If you’ve been playing Battlefield 4 since release and are getting a bit tired of the standard maps, then rejoice! New maps are coming today via the China Rising DLC. If you subscribe to Battlefield 4 Premium, that is.
Ah, Black Friday! That wonderful day of shopping in the US of A when stores slash prices, and people slash each other in order to get those deals. Now that PS4 and Xbox One have been released internationally (but not locally), we can see what people really want to buy, and Xbox is the clear winner.

As you should all be aware, we’re giving away a copy of a hardened edition of Call of Duty: Ghosts on PS3 or Xbox 360 to one lucky reader, and if that’s not got you excited the collection of Eminem CD’s most surely should be. Well, too late, because the competition is over. And this is who won it.
This one stems from a Twitter conversation I had earlier his week. Muslim Ron Perlman affirmed an undying and everlasting love for Assassin’s Creed 2’s Ezio Auditore, proclaiming him to be the best gaming character this generation. I disagreed, saying Mass Effect’s Mordin Solus and Portal’s GLaDOS and Wheatley would take umbrage to that. It spawned a whole long conversation about who the best or most endearing characters in this generation of consoles are.
