Why The World Needs The Last of Us: Remastered

It’s a bit of a running joke here at SA Gamer around just how obsessed I am with The Last of Us. It’s even gone as far as me being called the Sony fanboy (I suppose having a PS4, PS3, Vita, Sony sound system, Sony TV and now a Sony phone doesn’t help the cause) [Ed – Do we really need more evidence?]. If someone mentions TLOU I don’t shut up about it. I just can’t help myself but get excited...

Things Mass Effect 4 MUST and MUST NOT Have!

Based on the post yesterday around the Mass Effect 4 survey the developers are sending out, it got me thinking what kind of things I would really like to see in the new Mass Effect game. Of course there were mentions of threesomes yesterday (thanks ?) and that goes without saying, but there are a few other things I hope it has such as the following (Note: I have not yet finished ME3 *flamesuit ON*...

Top 5 ‘WTF were the developers smoking?!’ moments in games (R18)

When it comes to the games industry the idea of pushing boundaries is not an uncommon occurrence. Controversy in gaming is nothing new. It all started way back with Mortal Kombat that saw the implementation of the ESRB in the US and later PEGI in the UK. We’ve seen it happen in many games, but there are times when we have to question WTF was going on in their heads when they created certain ...

Do You Even CoD, Bro?

I have mentioned this a fair bit recently, but I am a new found Call of Duty fan (Ed – Believe it or not), after having played Call of Duty: Ghosts somewhat by chance. Yes, I know many of you didn’t like it, most citing that it was just more of the same but as the first of the series I have ever played I loved it. It was thrilling and just mindless fun. So it got me thinking a little about w...

What game pushed each console to its limits? (Part 5 of 5)

We all just about lose our heads when we receive bits of ‘next generation’ console news towards the end of a current console cycle. And for good reason, at that stage the previous generation strains under the pressure to keep up with the PC format (yes, I know), as that gradually grows and improves when it comes to hardware. Question is: What game pushed the various consoles to their l...

Is now the time to get a Wii U?

I have heard this going around a lot lately, “It’s finally the best time to buy a Wii U”. That Nintendo’s new console has some advantages over the other next-gen consoles and is actually a better option. But is this necessarily true? The answer? Well there isn’t a right answer, but let’s look at the pros and cons. It’s easy to see why people are saying it’s worth getting what with quit...

Welcome everybody to the second edition of Prediction Time. This time the writers from SA Gamer {Who know so little} share their thoughts on what they think will happen in the future.

*Takes a deep breath* Guess what everyone? It’s time for more games that you probably missed out on in the last generation and should play before I take a breath during this sentence and if you don’t buy the games and play them I will be upset with you and your life will be incomplete and you shall be cursed into gaming hell from now until forever which means that you better play these...

The Underrated Games of the Last Generation (Part 2)

Yesterday, we took a look at some of the most underrated games from the previous generation, and today we continue with the list. Yesterday had a couple of obscure titles that you may have missed. Today is a mixture of obscure games and titles that I can’t understand why nobody played. Let’s check them out. Vanquish Vanquish is heralded by many as one of the most enjoyable games to come out on PS3...

Is the Xbox One Changing Minds?

After all the hate the Xbox One got here last year, having a much delayed release, it’s understandable that many moved to the PS4 side of life. However, now with the console having a local launch date, with the Kinect free model, the price and of course now the bundle options, will things turn around? Has it changed your mind? It certainly has got me, and many others on the team thinking. The dela...

The Underrated Games of the Last Generation (Part 1)

This feature is a direct follow on from Dawid’s 30 games you must play on PS3. There are a couple of differences of course. First, it will cover all three consoles in the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360. Secondly, underrated can have different meanings, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the game did not score well by critics, but rather means that so many people just didn’t play the game, for whatever the ...
