How often do you rely on walkthroughs and game guides?

We live in a remarkable time. Thanks to the internet, almost any question in existence can be answered in less than a few seconds, and if you have a smart phone or tablet, this can be done practically anywhere. We never have to wonder for too long about how an engine works or the physics behind the Large Hadron Collider, not to mention the multitude of cat videos and pictures of our friends’ food ...

What game have you spent the most time playing?

Gaming is a wonderful thing, but it is one hell of a time consuming hobby. I mean that in a good way of course as there’s nothing quite like sitting down for a few hours to play games, escape the world and have a bit of fun (except you weirdos who play horror games and think that’s ‘fun’). The fact is, though, that it does take time to get through games, especially currentl...

Will you be playing The Taken King?

Destiny is already a year old, and while it’s still hit and miss in many books, it’s a game that has a huge following, particularly outside of South Africa. That said, there are still a fair chunk of people playing it locally (especially those that have chosen NOT to ignore it) as it provides some of the greatest co-op fun you can find on consoles. Bungie certainly haven’t got ev...

The Burning Question: What was the best “Mind=Blown” moment in gaming?

These days it seems as though people use the expression “Mind = Blown” for everything. We had a group discussion a little while ago and most of us agreed that people’s mind are blown for everything, even the smallest, most insignificant thing. Mind = Blown is so popular, especially on social media, that I’m quite surprised that people’s minds haven’t exploded when they see combining blue and yello...

Voice Actor Tuesday – Grey Griffin

Grey DeLisle was one of the first voice actor names I learnt, way back in 1999 when she played Queen Amidala in the video game of Star Wars Episode I and later in Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds. She remains one of my favourite voice actors. Grey Griffin Grey Griffin (previously known as Grey DeLisle) is an American voice actress with a very long list of credits in video games, TV series and film...

5 Current generation games you need to stop ignoring

Every ‘next’ generation of gaming comes with its fair share of hiccoughs and it often feels as though the really hard hitting games take a few years to get released. It doesn’t mean that there aren’t great games already though, just that you might have to look between the ‘lines’ for them. Often, when I have a discussion with a fellow gamer, I find that they hav...

Is VR really going to be all that?

You can’t help but think that it’s the calm before the storm. Come 2016 VR madness will kick into action and all the manufacturers are going to gun for your undivided attention. Virtual Reality is not something that’s new, in terms of the concept. We’ve been dreaming about this day for years as far back as most of us (in our 30’s or even 40’s) can remember. Nint...

Are Prince of Persia type Platform Adventures gone forever?

It’s barely a secret how fond I am of the old Prince of Persia games. The original trilogy back on PS2 games were some of the best memories I have when it comes to gaming. The 2009 cell-shaded game was not my cup of tea, but the “sort of” movie tie-in (it really wasn’t) Forgotten Sands was nothing short of fantastic. A hidden gem amongst games that have tried and failed. Ev...

Best Metal Gear Solid Boss Battles

Following the Metal Gear Solid theme I’ve been trying to achieve this week, Dawid and I thought it was a good idea to do a boss themed list. I chose a boss battle from each of the main games in the series (i.e., MGS 1 – 4) and one I thought was the best overall. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comment section. First up: Metal Gear Solid – Solid Snake vs Psycho Mantis If the comments in my MG...

Do you LOVE Gaming?

Okay okay, I realise that you probably wouldn’t be reading on a gaming website if you didn’t have some sort of love for gaming. I mean, it’s one of the greatest forms of entertainment so why wouldn’t you? But do you live and die for gaming? Or do you just enjoy it as a hobby? I know all of us on the site love gaming in our own way and if you just look at our varying tastes ...
