SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 16

We are finally into week 4, the last week of the first round and just a few characters left before the big showdowns come around. Battle 15 was another well contested fight with Faith leaping to the top with utter grace. Bill wasn’t enough without his co-op buddy while Alan Wake will have to just keep on writing. Mrs Pac-Man got caught by some ghosts and Boogerman clearly picked one nose too...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 15

Week 3 is nearly at its end, but not before we commend Max Payne for taking all those drugs which helped him make it through in Battle 14. Dante’s new look didn’t get him enough fans while Earthworm Jim buried his own head in shame. Juliet’s cute look was not nearly enough and Phoenix Wright wasn’t just objected against, but he was totally REJECTED. Battle 15 ends off week ...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 14

Things are moving at a steady pace and it’s exciting to see who you all vote for and who you want to win, so keep those votes and comments coming. Battle 13 ended with sanity prevailing as Scorpion overpowered the rest, as he would. Billy Lee was one dragon short for the competition while Sweet Tooth returned to the circus. Heavy was a little too light and Rash didn’t even realize the ...

Is The Metal Gear Solid series really all that?

There is a lot of excitement regarding the recently revealed release date of Kojima’s next Metal Gear Solid game, Phantom Pain, which we now know is coming out on 1 September 2015 (barring any delays of course). It has me wondering what the love affair with this series. I’ve actually been thinking about this ever since it came out on the PS1 (excluding the NES games). I have a bit of a love/...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 13

Believe it or not we are closing in on the end of the first round of battles to determine who is the greatest character. We have just over a week left of first round contestants. Battle 12 was a hard fought one in which Adam Jensen’s stealth skills saw him through. Commander Shepard wasn’t sure of his/her gender and finished in second, while Sephiroth’s hair got in his way of get...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 12

Another day, another battle. Battle 11 finished with that Bandicoot crashing into first place with Arthras coming a close second. Bowser stole a princess too many and landed up in third place just behind our poor Space Invader, and Mecha Hitler finished where he deserves… last. Battle 12 is up, let’s see who today’s contestants are: Adam Jensen (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) Having ...

Does the lifespan of a game warrant the price tag these days?

  Believe it or not, but older games were, contrary to popular believe, much shorter than the experiences we generally get with modern games today. Yes, something like the The Order 1886 might be the exception, but generally games just come with so much more. Paying R80 for a NES game (yes, those pirated version locally) can’t be compared to costs today in any form whatsoever. ThereR...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 11

It’s week 3 of our epic character battle and this week promises even more closely fought contests. Friday was a bit of a quiet one with the Prince of Persia stealing into first place without even having to use his powers. Captain Price followed but was called to duty before the end, Clank wasn’t quite enough without Ratchet, Claire’s super powers were clearly not super enough, an...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 10

Not only is it Friday today but we have round 10 of our character battle to enjoy just before the weekend. Battle 9 was not even nearly the close round we anticipated with Kratos wiping the floor with the others. Mario was a jump too short, Bayonetta had to go suck on a lollipop, Gordon Freeman was lost for words and poor little Gomez had to try a new perspective completely. Now, let’s check...

Should You Play Resident Evil: Revelations 2?

Just a few days ago, the new Resident Evil game – well, a quarter of it – was finally released. Many people, fans in particular, are hoping it’s the game brings the series back from the dead. After playing the first episode I feel like it’s going back to its old roots, but it’s not there yet. It kicks off with Claire Redfield and Moira Burton (Barry Burton’s dau...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 9

The battles are heating up the further we get. That’s already 8 down the tube as we saw Heihachi kick some serious butt yesterday. Dog wasn’t laughing anymore coming in at second, Voldo had his soul ripped out, Kat got the gravity pulled right out from underneath her and Shodan got more than just a simple system shock. Battle 9 is up and ready to go, have at ’em: Kratos (God of W...

SA Gamer Character Battle 2015 – Battle 8

Are you all enjoying the Character Battle? No doubt you are, especially since Battle 7 was such an epic one. Perhaps not everyone saw Talion running away with it so comfortably but then when you roam the world of Mordor you are pretty much ready for anything. Big Daddy struggled without his Little Sister but still came second, Samus came in third place and perhaps the Zero Suit would have been a b...
