6 Celebrities cameo appearances in video games

Who doesn’t love a good easter egg or cameo appearance in a video game? Just last week I was playing Call of Duty Infinite Warfare only to see Lewis Hamilton as a member of the crew on my spaceship. I couldn’t believe it was him. It was so random and perfect that I simply had to create a list of celebrity cameos in video games. Here’s just a little dash of who you can find in wha...

Video: An in-depth look at Dawn of War 3’s multiplayer

For those that played Dawn of War 2 you might remember that it was less about base building, like a traditional RTS, and more about commanding selected squads of troops. Many fans didn’t like the approach and it looks like Relic has been listening to the feedback of it’s community because Dawn of War 3 looks to be a true RTS. At first glance the game might remind you a lot of Star Craf...

The Burning Question: Can you imagine a life without gaming?

Just to give the heading of this post a bit more context, I’m referring to the idea of electronic gaming never being invented. Imagine what the world would be like if Pong was never conceived, little handhelds with side scrolling F1 racers and Donkey Kong, Atari systems and the dawn of “TV games” to name but a few.

Battlefront II won’t have a season pass

Season passes have unfortunately become a mainstay in modern gaming. They often even cost the same as the base game, but the content they provide you is never really worth that investment. It usually ends up being a few map packs or some singleplayer content that doesn’t add a lot to the already established experienced. Furthermore, you are taking a huge risk by trusting developers to not sc...

Review: Aaero (PC)

Aaero is a fantastic hybrid between a rail shooter and a rhythm game that doesn't mind straying off the beaten track.

At midnight last night Nintendo hosted another Nintendo Direct and most of us thought that ARMS and Splatoon 2 would be the only two games showing up, as per their original announcement, but that’s not quite what happened.

One of the biggest problems when buying a new game is that you’re running the risk of it being absolute rubbish.
