5 games that had me choking back a tear

Today is a bit of a sad day for me because due to work obligations, today is my last day at SA Gamer. [Ed – We are all trying to hold back the tears :(] Over the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to work not only with some of the best writers I know, but also some of the best people. Beyond that, I’ve also had a chance to write some reviews and interact with a lot of you down in the commen...

Uncharted 4 actress responds to the racial controversy surrounding Nadine

In December of last year, fans of the Uncharted series were ecstatic with the first glimpse of Nadine Ross, a South African mercenary for hire and antagonist in the upcoming A Thief’s End. It didn’t take long, however, for the trailer to draw a backlash, because creative director Neil Druckmann had cast a white voice actress, Laura Bailey, to play a character of colour. In response, Dr...

Square Enix invites you to “Play the beginning” in the Hitman Beta launch trailer

Although there’s been a few flashbacks in previous Hitman games, very little is actually known about Agent 47’s early work at the ICA. For those of you are are willing to fork out the dough early and pre-order the new game, a treat awaits you in the form of a back-story for everyone’s favourite chrome-domed gun for hire (On a side note, Batman has about 713 cool epithets and Io I...

Doom’s release date and Collector’s Edition revealed

Doom was the second first-person shooter I ever played (the first was Heretic, which was basically the same but with magic instead of guns) and the nostalgia has been enough for many fans of the original to jump right onto the hype train for the remake. For those of you who are anxious to find out when you’ll be able to get busy slaughtering demons again, you’re in luck because Bethesd...

Square Enix releases details on PS4 exclusive content and beta for Hitman

I’ve been a fan of the Hitman games since its first entry in the early 2000s. I remember being blown away by the idea that I could assume the identity of any random NPC with a quick flex of my fiber wire and stealing their clothes. Since then, I’ve played through every Hitman game more times than I can count and the newest entry is in my top three most anticipated releases of 2016. For...

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine won’t be released anytime soon

Last year we was absolutely blown away by what CD Projekt Red had managed to accomplish with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Looking past the enormity of the game world, the side-quests were actually interesting and didn’t consist merely of errands involving killing 10 wolves or fetching 5 flowers. The first paid DLC, entitled Hearts of Stone, was released in October last year and was widely prais...

PS+ Vote to Play will return this month

Late last year, Sony experimented with the idea that PS+ subscribers could vote for the titles that they would most like to see make their way onto the free games lineup for the month. Although it only happened once, the Vote to Play system was very well received, despite the fact that many were disappointed that their chosen games didn’t win. Well, Sony is taking this process out for anothe...

February’s free PS+ games include Helldivers and Nom Nom Galaxy

The month of Valentine’s Day, and more importantly the month of the Deadpool movie, is almost upon us and although there are plenty of awesome AAA titles scheduled for release this year, Sony is off to a bit of a slow start in terms of PS+ offerings. February won’t be much better than January by the looks of things, (although I must admit that I really enjoyed playing Grim Fandango thi...

Backwards compatibility has been available for the Xbox One for some time now, and according to Microsoft’s blog, millions of gamers from around the world have logged roughly 21 million hours playing games that were once only available on old-gen consoles. To date, there have been 130 titles added to the list and Microsoft has recently announced 10 more that have recently been made available...

Ubisoft wants you to ‘Rise above extinction’ in this new Far Cry: Primal trailer

I must admit that as much as I enjoyed Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4, I wasn’t terribly excited about them when they were announced and I waited quite a while after their releases before I picked up a copy. Far Cry: Primal on the other hand, has me really hyped. The move to a fairly unexplored setting, forcing us to rely on ancient tools and weapons, and an entire language created purely for this ...

Valve agrees to sell fan-made Half-Life sequel on Steam

Yesterday we told you about a Danish retailer offering to take pre-orders for the much anticipated Half-Life 3, despite the fact that there is still no official word from Valve about when, or even if, it would be available. Well, if that news reignited your passion for the franchise and are looking to get your fix, Valve has recently given the go-ahead to a fan-made sequel to Half-Life: Opposing f...
