The Lupe Vs Daigo SFV Exhibition Showcases Dramatic Excitement In The FGC

In case you didn’t know, last night, through some rather complex series of events, rapper Lupe Fiasco faced off against world renown fighting game player: Daigo Umehara. It was a first to 3 wins set, in the latest big fighting game, Street Fighter V, and was set up by Mad Catz to stream on Twitch’s official channel. Watch the video below to see the set itself. Now, let’s just get […]

The Minecraft Ending Has a Very Secret Message

The Minecraft Ending Has a Very Secret Message

Minecraft will always be known as a ‘quirky’ game – one look at the design of a creeper more than confirms that – however, it’s more than peculiar text-based ending – which sees two Godlike beings discussing life and dreams and just about everything else – baffled even the hardiest of fans. Given the truly endless nature of the gameplay, it seems strange that Minecraft creator Notch even decided to […]

10 Visual Features In Current Gen Games Which Continue To Impress

10 Visual Features In Current Gen Games Which Continue To Impress

Author’s Note: I am a console gamer, however I am not partial to any console beyond having a personal preference. This article is meant to be a celebration of what current gen console technology can achieve. The snarky sort among you will likely remark how PC has been able to achieve a lot of these features a long time ago, and you would be correct. But remember, this isn’t a […]

“The Division” Received Massive Visual Downgrade

“The Division” Received Massive Visual Downgrade

The disease has spread. In a comparison made by the guys over at Games Radar, the beta version and the E3 2013 demo of Ubisoft’s highly anticipated Tom Clancy’s The Division have been put side-by-side, and the result is quite shocking. The studio has received quite a lot of negative player feedback in the passed couple of years, following the visual downgrade of Watch Dogs and the bug-ridden release of Assassin’s Creed: Unity that made […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW Finally, perhaps the most anticipated film of this century is upon us, and my oh my was it worth the wait. When the announcement that Disney were reviving the much-loved series first came, it was of course met with a rush of excitement, but also a severe twang of angst. Why? Because – as we saw with ill-recieved prequels – Star Wars is a franchise that’s easy […]

Krampus Review

Krampus Review

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW Krampus is director Michael Dougherty’s horror/comedy attempt at Christmas gone wrong. Based on Alpine Folklore, the film has some stand out moments but, rather inopportunely, falls short in the long run. The opening scene, which features a Black Friday rush in a supermarket store, is arguably the best of the movie. Sardonically set to the sound of Andy Williams’ ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’, […]

The Biggest Gaming Letdowns of 2015

The Biggest Gaming Letdowns of 2015

What a year it has been for gaming, with some of the best titles ever – Halo 5, Fallout 4, The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid V, Just Cause 3, and Super Mario Maker – all hitting the shelves, it’s safe to say that 2015 will be remembered fondly. Nevertheless, there’s always bound to be a skyscraper of stinkers cluttering-up an otherwise beautiful gaming skyline, and 2015 seems to have […]

Amiibo as DLC Part 3: Toy Story

Amiibo as DLC Part 3: Toy Story

If it hasn’t been obvious from some of my past articles, I’m sort of the resident amiibo guy. Despite my original article and follow up, I do collect amiibo. Part of it is because, like many western Nintendo fans, I want to own something of Nintendo that’s both official but more than just a game. Generally, clothes are my choice. Music can work too. Figures make me a bit uncomfortable, […]

PES 2016 Roster Update Too Little Too Late

PES 2016 Roster Update Too Little Too Late

Almost 3 months after it’s release, PES 2016 will finally have this season’s team rosters. A patch coming on December 3rd will update transfers such as Anthony Martial’s £36 million move to Manchester United and Ramiro Funes Mori’s £9.5 million switch from River Plate to Everton. In all honestly the whole situation is a farce, PES 2016 launched on September 15, that’s 2 weeks after the summer transfer window closed, […]

Actually Fallout 4 is a nice part of this weeks discussion, more importantly, the exploits that people are […]
