SA Gamer Awards 2016: Best Soundtrack

2016 was an interesting year, and with it came a whole truckload of excellent, and some, not so excellent games. SA Gamer took a bit of a break over the festive season, and we return in 2017 with a fresh outlook, a few extra pounds around the waist and of course, the SA Gamer Awards 2016! We’ll be posting our picks over the next few days, so be sure to check in regularly to tell us how much ...

Uncharted movie has a script, and it’s finished

Reports of an Uncharted movie has been around for almost as long as the original game has been out, which coincidentally is 10 years ago this year. WOWZERS! Joe Carnahan, the guy tasked with writing the Uncharted script for Sony, said via Instagram that he is done with it and that the real work starts now: Done and Dusted. Now the REAL work begins. If there's a more monstrously cool action scr...

Sony releasing a 3D Audio Headset in January

The audio of a video game, or movie for that matter, is often overlooked, but it is one of the most important elements in making the experience immersive and enjoyable. For a long time, Stereo sound, and Surround sound systems have been the go-to audio delivery methods, but now 3D Audio is making some waves as well. The idea is to deliver the sound in more than just a horizontal plane, which means...

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...

Activision is doing a free trial of Infinite Warfare

It would seem that Activision is a bit desperate to get people to play its latest entry into the Call of Duty franchise, as it’s now doing a free trial for Infinite Warfare that’ll span 15-20 December on PS4 and Xbox One. This is great if you’re curious about the game and keen to give it a bash, but not sure you want to shell out the money for it. The free trial is a bit misleadi...

PlayStation 4 breaks the 50 million threshold

When the PlayStation 4 launched three years ago, few would have guessed that it would become such a huge hit in such a short space of time. Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that more than 50 million PS4s sold to consumers worldwide since 2013. This includes sales of the recently released PS4 Pro, but the total for the new beefier console was not revealed. That is a staggering number of con...

Want the best experience for The Last Guardian? Get a PS4 Pro

After what felt like an eternity, The Last Guardian is finally out. The game was originally supposed to be released on the PlayStation 3, but due to numerous delays, it was released on the next console generation in the PlayStation line-up, the PS4. The PS3 was just not capable of Fumito Ueda and TeamICO’s ambition for the game, as it seems that even the normal PS4 is having some performance...

So, about that backlog of yours. How is it looking?

Ah yes, its the end of the year and a lot of us will be taking a well deserved break very soon. For us gamers, that means working a bit on the massive backlog of games you’ve accumulated over the years. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll probably spend most of your time playing just one game non-stop throughout the holiday break. Last year, that game for me was Destiny, which I bought...

The wait for a decent Extreme Mountain sports game has been a long one, but is Steep worth the wait or is it an uphill battle?

Stealth in a unique, fun and refreshing way.

Video: The Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection visual upgrade is better than you might think

Remastered game – a term we’ve got so used to in this generation. At first most of us were reluctant (and some still are) towards these remastered games, but it’s come to a point where there are so many remastered titles that one of these bundles would ultimately consume your time, no matter what you tried. The Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection could be one such game for...

A Trademark for a new Need for Speed appears

The Need for Speed series has become a bit stale of late. The latest entry wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t mind-blowing either, and it might seem like a good idea from Electronic Arts to give the series a bit of a break. That’s not going to happen it seems as it is expected to return again in 2017 by the look of things. This has been confirmed by Ghost Games, the developer behind the l...
