Exclusive interview: Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers with Jane Jensen

In our recent preview of Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers we delved into many of the differences between the original game and the 20th anniversary edition. Many of us are huge fans of the Gabriel Knight franchise so when offered an exclusive interview with series founder Jane Jensen how could we pass up the opportunity? Here is what Jane had to say: The original Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fat...

My Issue With The Last of Us

I’m a massive fan of Naughty Dog’s brilliant survival horror game, but that doesn’t mean I’m blind to its faults. As a game, it is brilliant, but in a real-life application, it does fail in many areas. I’ve seen a lot of people debate and moan about certain things, but there’s one thing that I don’t think people have picked up on. I’ll keep the suspense for now. Some of the issues people have incl...

How do we feel about the Tomb Raider exclusivity?

So yesterday it broke that Rise of the Tomb Raider will now be an exclusive on Xbox One. That means no PC version and no PS4 version for a franchise that has always been on PlayStation and PC. It was a shock move that has sent many PS fans raging. We still don’t quite 100% know if it will NEVER be coming to the other platforms but for now it is Xbox only. So what does that mean? Well there are two...

Prediction Time – Console War Edition

Hello everyone and welcome to the third edition of Prediction Time where I ask the SA Gamer staff to look into their crystal balls and predict what they think will happen… PUT YOUR BALLS AWAY GARTH! Anyway, so this time I asked the guys which console will win the new generation console war. Will it be the PS4, Xbox One or the Wii U? Here’s what they had to say: Jarred I think it’...

In life and gaming, remember to pause

With the heart-wrenching news this morning of the untimely passing of a legend, Robin Williams, once again us ordinary mortals left behind are reminded of something. Something we really don’t like to think of, but that we, in all honesty, need to be reminded of from time to time. Time is fleeting. We moan and gnash our teeth at how little time we have to finish our massive backlog of games, ...

Why is cross-platform gaming still a problem in 2014? I’m tired of this crap

It’s something that’s bugged me for quite some time quite honestly. About three weeks ago I posted a news piece on why Destiny will not support cross-platform gaming. Then last week I was discussing a Call of Duty session online with a friend and, because we own different platforms, we were denied that privilege. So why the f#$k do we still have to live with this incompatibility in 201...

Is Evolve Still Flying Under Your Radar?

We did a post the other day showcasing one of the monsters from Evolve in a trailer, and there was some feedback in the comments suggesting a bit of disinterest in the game. It got me wondering whether this is a common conception around the gaming circles or is it limited to a few people? Now with the delay to 2015 it might perhaps fall more in line with your buying schedule. Personally, I didn’t ...

Do you replay your games?

It’s obvious that this post has been inspired by the re-release of The Last of Us. Being, quite possibly, my favourite game of all time the remastered version has been the perfect excuse for me to play a game which I finished just over a year ago, again. That’s something that probably would never have happened otherwise, which justifies my reasons for the double dipping. It did get me ...

Did you know these Trivia Tidbits? Vol.2

We hope you spent the past month catching up on some of your backlog titles because things are going to start getting busy as far as game releases go. It’s Friday after all so let’s take a look at some gaming trivia to ease us into a weekend filled with plenty gaming. It is only possible to press a button on a game cont...

When Should You Play The Last of Us DLC, Left Behind? (Spoiler Free)

The Last of Us: Remastered releases this week and as everyone knows, it does contain all the DLC included into one package. Of all the DLC, only one piece of it focuses on the single player experience, and that is the Left Behind DLC. Now with the game coming out there seems to be a bit of confusion around when this should be played, let me clear this up for you. First off, let me just say that th...

A trip down memory lane: Best Retro Songs Ever!

Just a little while ago on Twitter and Facebook we asked you what you regarded as the best soundtrack of all time. Being a bit of a retro nut I turned to some oldschool songs. It’s perhaps the moments of nostalgia in the below tunes that will trigger a memory of a certain point in your life. They’re as great as they’ve ever been. If you’ve got some other tunes that brings b...

Annoying Characters In Video Games

Many of us play video games for their bold and dramatic stories and, sometimes, connect with their fantastically well-written characters. However, not every game is perfect, and many of them have characters we love to hate. Video games are filled with annoying characters, bosses and teabagging players. We’ll never get rid of annoying characters, so we might as well name and shame a few of them. He...
