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.
Review embargoes are sometimes a good indication about whether a studio is confident in the quality of their game or not. Most of the time when a game is embargoed until after release, it's not a good sign. Call of Duty on the Vita is one of the best example of this, and now Sims 4 could join that growing list.
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.
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.
You remember when Yu Gi Oh! 5D’s entire premise of card games on motorcycles was considered the most stupid thing to ever hit the Duel Monsters franchise? Trust me, the Zexal 3DS game is far, far worse.
Being primarily a console gamer, it’s been a while since I needed a proper gaming mouse; my R80 Logitech has been serving me well for my day to day business needs. However, with some top tier PC titles being released in the near future I jumped at the chance to review the Steelseries Sensei Wireless Laser mouse.
So, you think that you’ve seen all that Dark Souls 2 has to offer, do you? Ha! I laugh at you! I laugh to the max! You have yet to face the dreaded Lazygamer Boss, a creature of unrivalled attitude, sloth and beer belly fat attacks! There’s no hope for success and hey what are you doing near our gem of power, stay away from that don’t hit it NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
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.
What’s old is new again. Amidst all the big-name HD remakes, remasters and rejiggerings hitting the scene, one other classic game has also arrived with a brand new 1080p sheen. Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey was a classic game back in the day, an action platformer with a cerebral twist and a loveable hero desperate to escape becoming a finger-lickin’ good meal. And unlike some dodgy KFC, the game has gotten better with time.
I seem to be on a roll with headsets - I now feel naked without some quality aural peripherals at my desk and I love the difference in sound. Headsets make gaming, video viewing and general PC experiences better, but not all headsets are created equal. So, how does the Kraken compare?
I’ll admit I’m a bit addicted to gaming on the iPhone 5, possibly because those bathroom breaks are taking longer than they should..and holy crap is Flick Tennis currently driving me insane. Don’t judge me.
When it comes to smartphones, Samsung is always trying something a bit odd. With that ethos, comes the Samsung Galaxy S5, a communication tool packed with other features that you never knew you needed or wanted. Some of them are baffling, some of them belong in a niche category, but one thing’s for certain: They all work rather well actually.
I fondly remember playing co-op action shooters with my brother as a kid. Of course he'd always blame me when he died, but that's besides the point - Crimsonland reminds me of all those old-school arcade shooters and it's filled with plenty of remastered gore.
This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions twists all our arms collectively, but if sweetness can win, and it can - then I'll still be here tomorrow to high-five you yesterday, my friend. Peace.
I didn't see the point of a tablet until I got one, and now I can't believe I ever lived without one. Samsung has a tablet in its stable of Galaxy products, but are these the 10.1 inches that you've been looking for?
