Rumour: Half-Life 3 available for pre-order through a Danish gaming site

Ah yes, once again we have received news that Half-Life 3 is on the horizon. It’s been over a decade since Half-Life 2 hit the shelves and despite the fact that most of us have given up hope that the third iteration of the series will ever see the light of day, every time a new rumour arises, we can’t help but hope that this time will be different. It’s become the butt of many jo...

A significant price-cut may be on the horizon for the PS4 and Xbox One

With the Rand dropping as fast as it has been, gaming is becoming quite an expensive hobby in South Africa. There have been rumours doing the rounds that the PS4 could cost upwards of R7000 within the next few months due to the current state of our currency and its standing against the all-mighty Dollar. There may be a bit of good news coming, however, as one industry expert believes that the pric...

Solo campaign confirmed for For Honor

One of the games that really stood out for me at E3 last year was For Honor. We’ve seen plenty of medieval settings in games in the past but for the most part, they are set in fantasy worlds inhabited by wizards, dragons, and fair maidens in need of rescuing, but very few have explored what it would have actually been like to serve as a knight in a realistic environment. For Honor aims to ch...

Hellblade developer Ninja Theory (who also developed games such as DmC: Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword, and Kung Fu Chaos) has confirmed via Twitter that the game will definitely be launched this year and that both the PC and PS4 versions will be released at the same time, putting an end to the rumours that there was a timed exclusivity deal signed with Sony. Yes. #Hellblade will be released this y...

Final Fantasy VII Remake may tone down scenes from the Honey Bee Inn

As many of you know, last year I experienced the magic that is Final Fantasy VII for the first time. During my time with it though, I found myself wondering how the developers would approach certain scenes whilst making the game for today’s audience. Two scenes in particular come to mind, and if you’ve played the game you know exactly which scenes I’m talking about. Between Cloud...

New VR trailer from HTC and Valve possibly hints at Portal 3

2016 is the year of Virtual Reality. The pre orders for the Oculus Rift will begin today but as we know, it won’t be your only choice in VR headsets, with the main competitors being PlayStation VR (formerly Project Morpheus) and the HTC Vive. In an effort to promote the Vive Pre, HTC and Valve’s second generation of dev kit for virtual reality, a new trailer has been released and inter...

Ubisoft is ditching co-op in Far Cry: Primal

Far Cry: Primal looks to reinvent the standard model from the previous games and instead of invading base camps with a hefty arsenal of guns, we’ll be taking on rival tribes and prehistoric beasts with nothing but tools and weapons that would have been available in 10 000 BCE. In an effort to create a stellar campaign, Ubisoft is planning on excluding the multiplayer modes that were so popul...

5 Sequels to look forward to in 2016

After a relaxing holiday, it’s time to get back into work mode. The festive season has left its mark in the form of  many additional calories and for many of us, the hangover from New Year’s Day is still reverberating through our skulls like a brass band over a megaphone,  but we have a very exciting year ahead in terms of gaming. 2015 wasn’t a bad year by any means and we saw so...

Dying Light: The Following is going to be huge

I’ve never really been a fan of zombie games so I was legitimately surprised at how much I enjoyed playing Dying Light earlier this year. The first-person parkour mechanics were immensely fun, and I have to admit that there is a certain satisfaction that comes with smashing in the skulls of the undead with a sledgehammer. The upcoming expansion, The Following, promises to bring even more hea...

Geoff Keighley addresses questions regarding Kojima’s absence from The Game Awards 2015

At The Game Awards last week, Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain won 2 awards, yet the game’s creator, Hideo Kojima, “wasn’t permitted to attend”, according to the event’s producer, Geoff Keighley. In what was apparently an unrehearsed statement that came as a surprise to other members of the show’s production team, Keighley spoke out against Konami and Kojima’...
