An interview with THE BROTHERHOOD about STASIS, CAYNE and BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION

A while back I got to play and fell in love with STASIS, an isometric adventure game set in a dark, scary near future. Now the team behind this game are back with a Kickstarter for BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION, a sci-fi adventure set in a dystopian Africa after an alien artifact allows technology to leapfrog… and lead to all-out war. The Kickstarter is sitting past 50% of its target goal and I got C...

Game releases in January – With some predictions!

I know, I know, we are a bit late with the game releases post this month. It’s partly because we’ve been so busy with awards and also partly because the writer of these posts (me) got a bit drunk and decided it was a good idea to swing from the mall’s Christmas tree into the path of some teenage girls at a coffee shop. I’m kidding, I don’t go out. SA Gamer has totally...

SA Gamer Awards 2016: Best Handheld Game

Portable or handheld gaming has been around since before I was a Wii-Toddler. It has evolved into many different shapes and sizes over the years in and out off the gaming world, and with the Nintendo Switch on its way it is evolving even further. There’s not a soul alive on this planet that can’t say that they’ve either owned a portable video gaming console or know someone that d...

Burning Question: What makes a video game great?

A lot of people might consider 2016 to be a bit of let down, but that is definitely not the case when it comes to that number of excellent video games that released this year. Hell, just scrolling down the list on our poll this week will make a wireless mouse’s battery shudder. Recently I noticed that some games should be fun, but ultimately ended up falling short. it came to my attention th...

Voice Actor Tuesday: David Hoffman

Welcome back to another edition of Voice Actor Tuesday. This week we’re going to look at the actor/voice actor David Hoffman and his contributions to the word of video games. Before that, though, let’s take a quick glance at his previous work. According to IMDB, he has been acting since 2000, appearing in a variety of shorts between 2003 and 2007. From about 2010 onwards, he started ma...

Voice Actor Tuesday – Hellena Taylor

If you’ve played the Bayonetta games at all, you may remember that her voice is a huge part of her character. Hellena Taylor is the English voice of the Umbra Witch in both games, as well as Bayonetta’s various other appearances, including Super Smash Bros, Anarchy Reigns and the Bloody Fate anime. I’m usually not a fan of overly sexy female characters in ridiculous outfits in vi...

Best free-to-play games on XBOX ONE

With game prices on the rise, it’s good to know that there are games you can indulge in for free on the Xbox One. Sure, not ll freebies are able to leave you fulfilled or entertained for hours, but let’s not dismiss the concept completely based on the failures out there. Some of them might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but at least you can sample from the variety available to you...

Voice Actor Tuesday – Clancy Brown

With all the Mass Effect Andromeda buzz at the moment, I thought I would find out who some of the voice actors involved in that game were. One of the names that came up was Clancy Brown, who plays the father of the main protagonists, Alec Ryder. We’ll probably only know next year how pivotal this role is, but Brown has voiced many other characters over the years. Brown often plays the roles ...

The Burning Question: Was the Wii U worth it?

I remember when I bought my Wii U. It was a done deal. New Nintendo console? This is going to be great. It was a certainty in my mind, there was no doubt about lineups or games. Now it is being discontinued this week, no more Wii Us being manufactured and I still haven’t had a new Legend of Zelda on the Wii U. So was the console worth it? I am not sure. I mean without it I would have never p...

November should be known as the month of the Culling of the Wallet. It’s the holiday season and publishers are releasing all of their big hitters and because of that, the release list is going to be packed. I hope you’ve saved up your tax returns or sold that kidney because this is going to be a big month. Below are all of the big games releasing as well as a few off-the-cuff predictio...

The Burning Question: Are you ready to make the SWITCH?

The moment that we’ve all been waiting for has come to pass. Nintendo has finally announced its next generation video game console, lets say hello to the Nintendo SWITCH. The question is, as excited as we all are, has this reveal left you with even more questions about this home and portable hybrid? What do we know thus far. Well we know that this tablet known as the Nintendo SWITCH will hav...

Voice Actor Tuesday – Robert Clotworthy

Robert Clotworthy is another of those voice actors who hasn’t been in very many games, but has had one iconic role that makes him instantly recognisable to fans of that game. As the voice of Jim Raynor since the original 1998 Starcraft game, Clotworthy has brought life to one of the central characters in the Starcraft franchise. he returned to voice Raynor in Starcraft II and Heroes of the S...
