COD: Ghosts drops below Modern Warfare 3

Towards the end of November last year, I asked if the COD: Ghosts hype train had passed. COD fans had been telling me that everyone was migrating back to previous iterations in the franchise, but when I checked the numbers it wasn't true. Well, now it is.

Black Ops 2 is the CoD4 killer

Call of Duty 4 has survived for years as the biggest competitive title in the Do Gaming League. It even outlived its would-be successors Modern Warfare 2 and 3. Black Ops 2 has however become the new FPS king of the league, begging the question: Should Call of Duty 4 be dropped from the competitive roster?

Team XtaZ goes to Hollywood

Last weekend was probably one of the most important weekends for eSports in South Africa; we had the incredible StarCraft 2 Invitational play out, the South African ESL Qualifiers and our Battlefield 3 team play another match in the Nations Cup. The highlight of this article though, is the fantastic victory by Team XtaZ, securing their spot in the Call of Duty Championships in Los Angeles this April.

Sign ups for the ESL S.A Call of Duty Qualifiers are open

Just yesterday I told you that South Africa will have a spot at the Call of Duty Championships in Los Angeles this year and that we didn’t have all the details, well, now we do. Black Ops 2 teams competing on Xbox 360 can sign up for the qualifiers. Here’s everything you need to know.

S.A to compete in the Call of Duty Championships in the US

Usually when you hear about local gamers competing abroad, it’s when they are playing a PC game. The Battlefield 3 PS3 team who aren't a Protea team were probably the first to compete in an international competition as console players. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. Anyway, so here’s another tournament South Africa will be competing in as console gamers, this time for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Teams are doing it in the Do Gaming League

Week two of the Do Gaming League kicked off this Tuesday and it’s hard to believe that hundreds of matches have taken place in a matter of only ten days. Needless to say that picking out the potential dominators of the league is a tough task, the league spans across eleven titles and over 4000 entries. 

The Lazygamer Awards 2012 – Best Multiplayer

Multiplayers are dominated by shooters, whether it’s on console or PC. But what makes a great multiplayer? Everything: from latency to good map layouts, potential for league play or pure addiction. This year, we’ve seen some top notch multiplayers release, the best of them being…

The Lazygamer Awards 2012 – Best Shooter

Shooters aren’t just about shooting (doh!), it’s about the sheer thrill of tactical gameplay and strategy. That head-shot from 300m away, that SMG rush, that AK-47 destruction, and then sometimes there’s a story in it or whatever. There’s been a great battle of the shooters this year, but whether you love it or hate it, the award goes to…

World record for longest gaming session broken with Black Ops 2

These days, one can’t sit down for ten minutes to play a game without some sort of distraction present, whether it be your doddery grandfather locking himself out of the house, or those damn social services workers rocking up to demand alimony payments. It ain’t my kid dammit! I don’t know no Billy Jean! Still, some of us do get to play our games for more than an hour a day. And then you get one guy that breaks a world record in the process.

Zombie apocalypse for real

Zombies are taking over the world, just not in the way that I’d hoped they would. Preparing for a zombie apocalypse by jamming hours of Left 4 Dead, CoD Zombie Mod and DayZ will just have to pay off some day in some other way.
