Burning Question: Can you still pull all-nighters?

In my youth, I was capable of some extraordinary feats. Some of these included partying to the early hours of the morning and getting up early for work without issues, or drinking beer incredibly fast without any repercussions. Another feat I was capable of was playing games until the sun came up. I’ve had instances where I would start playing a game at about 7pm, to only realise the time wh...

4 Games that SHOULDN’T get a sequel

Playing on David’s Top Ten Games that need a sequel video last week, I thought I would look at some games that just definitely do not need a sequel, at all. Like they should just bury the franchise already and be done with it. Careful, it’s going to get controversial Assassin’s Creed I am one of the people that was absolutely blown away by Assassin’s Creed and even more so ...

Honesty Hour – I’ve never played a Pokémon game

Those who know me will be well aware that I love Nintendo. I’ve grown up playing games of Super Mario and later in my life got introduced to The Legend of Zelda, Metroid Prime and more. There is however one franchise I’ve never ever played. Not one single game – Pokémon. When I think of Pokémon the first thing that comes to mind is that yellow rat thing called Pikachu. I have absolutely no idea ex...

Honesty Hour – I’ve NEVER played Dishonored

Hello citizens, I trust it’s been a wonderfully productive weekend. Please step this way to hate on me for having not played a game you no doubt love. Yes, this is the post where I share some of my shameful lack of experience with games. Since starting this feature I get asked a lot what I have actually played, truth is I have played many of the top games, but some get passed up on the way u...

Budgeting: How do you manage it with your games?

Gaming is, as we all know, a very expensive hobby. Never mind the cost of a new console and/or PC, the extra cost (first world problem) of wanting more than one platform and most of all the cost of games. Games are the real struggle as our Rand continues to weaken and it’s almost at a point where the cost of a single game is higher than it has ever been (I remember paying almost R1k for Unre...
