We’re live on the ground, ducking fire from civilians, embedding ourselves into rAge in much the same way that a tick embeds itself into a dog. We’re doing interviews, getting the scoop from various developers and wondering what this “vacation” word is that people throw around so casually. We’re also taking photos. Lots and lots of photos!
rAge seems to go in waves - some years it is absolutely excellent and other years I can get through the whole expo in a couple hours. This year, there are a ton of awesome games playable on the various stands, and you won't want to miss them.
I’m currently too broke to afford a copy of Watch Dogs, but that’s what happens when you have a crippling Batman addiction. And while my attempts to hack into the banks using a state of the art 386 PC have failed spectacularly, there are easier and less risky ways out there to help me get what I want.
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is almost upon us. But, contrary to Darryn's insistence, playing with others can be way more fun than playing with yourself. Megarom is teaming up with Internet Solutions to let a bunch of locals get together for some dungeon raiding.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is out, and maybe in the next gen or end of year game rush you’ve been umming and erring about whether to plonk down the cash. Thanks to our friends at Activision and Megarom, we’re giving you the opportunity to experience that realistic fish AI, establish an emotional connection with a virtual dog, fire guns in space and get sworn at online by 12 year olds. Oh, and listen to a whole lot of some angry white dude. For free!
Ah, it seems like just yesterday that COD: Ghosts was announced, and now its launch is upon us. Megarom has put together an awesome competition for you, and there is even going to be a launch party.
Steel Series has shown its commitment to South African eSports for a while now, particularly by sponsoring our local teams. Now, they've upped the game!
There are some rather disquieting rumours that Grand Theft auto V will be delayed locally – particularly for those who’ve ordered a copy through some of our Cape-town based retailers. We’ve been trying to contact just about everybody involved. Here’s the deal.
If you haven’t already pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto V, arguably this year’s biggest game, expect to pay a little more for it. The local price of the latest iteration of the infamous murder simulator is set to increase, because our currency is in the toilet, according to the chaps at MyGaming.

March has come and gone, and it’s time again for the random draw on the Lazygamer.net Superbru rugby prediction pool. One super bru has won himself a free copy of BioShock: Infinite on the platform of his choice.
It’s out today; one of the best games of the year, and quite possibly ever. I’m sitting here, waiting (still) for my BioShock Infinite pre-order to arrive, while I’m sure many of you are sitting with copies on your desks, watching the minutes tick by like hours. If perchance, you don’t have the game (or even if you do!), we’ve got a pretty special bunch of Bioshock Infinite prizes up for grabs.
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.
