Video: The evolution of the Tekken series

It’s so early in the morning and it’s already a slow news day. However, last night I watched a random video that caught my eye on YouTube. It was a look at how the Tekken series evolved over the years. Youtuber, Alerion, took the time to compare the intro and game footage of each main series Tekken, from the original right through to the upcoming Tekken 7. Don’t expect to see Tek...

The tactical shooter receives it’s first DLC today in the form of Narco Road.

Update: Be quick if you’re interested! RARU secured a limited number of units, and this is very likely your last chance to secure one. Also, anyone wondering, it’s been discontinued in Europe (which includes SA) too. Original: While most of you were having a relaxing time over the long weekend with friends and/or family Nintendo dropped the bomb so many had feared would be announced in...

G2A responds to sale of scammed keys

Last week I wrote about how co-founder of Vlambeer, Rami Ismail, said that he would rather have people pirate his game than buy it on G2A, considering the amount of time he spends trying to filter out key scammers. G2A replied to that since then, sending me a mail. Here is the mail, which was sent because “there are some misunderstandings we’d like to clarify”: “First thing...

G2A is okay selling scammed keys because they are legitimate keys

G2A is making waves at the moment, and not for any of the right reasons. First a retail partnership with Gearbox for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition fell apart after public outcry, resulting in Gearbox asking for a policy change from G2A or it would pull the partnership. G2A did not meet those demands. Since then many have come forward to talk about G2A, email scams, key skimming and how G2A Shield...

Video: Project CARS 2 shows off its first official Rallycross footage

Project CARS had somewhat of a mixed reception. Some loved the hardcore simulation roots, while other people believe that it felt a bit bare. It came with a huge number of tracks, but not many cars to choose from. Something else that’s been missing in this generation is a simulation racer that includes both on- and off-road racing, and Project CARS 2 might be the first simulation racer to do...

Capcom’s 20-year-old anatomy guide keeps all fighters visually consistent

Microsoft bans game emulators from the Windows store

A few months ago we reported that you could play retro NES titles on your Xbox One via a Windows store app called NESbox. We tried it out and it worked, as long as you had the roms you could play hundreds of games via your Xbox One. Well it looks like Microsoft have caught on to what people were doing and have decided to ban all emulators from the Windows store. It did seem a bit too good to be tr...

PlayStation VR slow growth with consumers means it’s heading to arcades and theme parks

For years now we’ve all been asking and pleading for VR to make our worlds more realistic and now that it’s finally here it’s definitely providing an experience, but it comes at a cost. Entering that VR dream is not the cheapest experience around, and because of that the growth of PlayStation VR has been “slower-than-expected” around the world. There was a surge of ex...

Atlus is inexplicably stopping people from streaming Persona 5

Streaming and Let’s Plays have been a great boon for gaming in the last decade or so. It’s quite simple, really. A content creator playing your game and getting hundreds of thousands of views is remarkable advertising for your game and it’s completely free. Gaming companies have even picked up on this and have fully embraced the “influencer” generation because of how ...
