The “beta” (Read; demo) for Crystal Dynamics forthcoming Avengers game was open to everyone to play over the weekend, so I jumped in and spent some time smashing stuff as the Hulk, flying around as Iron-Man, kicking ass as Black Widow and generally avoiding playing as the annoying Kamala Khan as much as possible. With less than a month until the Avengers is out, this demo is our chance to see if we’re going to get an awesome new superhero game that can stand with Marvel’s Spider-Man and the Arkham games.
So, we’ve managed to officially make it past the half-way points of this utterly crazy year. Putting aside all the madness, that means we’re half-way to the traditional Game of the Year lists where we can gush about the games we love, argue about what we didn’t and remind ourselves why our hobby is awesome. That’s another 6-months away though, and I’m impatient, so just like last year I’m going to do the best games of the year, so far.
Since we’ve all got some extra time on your hands these days I thought I’d do something a little different and rundown what I think are the best deals on the Epic Store’s Mega Sale which is running until June 11th.
Hello everyone, it’s that festive time of the year again when a judgemental fat guy tumbles down your chimney, paws through your stuff and maybe leaves a few presents provided you’ve met his requirements to be “nice.”
Gaming chairs have exploded in popularity over the last few years. With so many different models of PC gaming chair on the market choosing one can be daunting. So when E-Win Racing contacted me about their E-Win Champion Series and why they’re some of the best gaming chairs out there I was naturally interested.
Post-apocalyptic survival blockbuster Days Gone was among the most hyped new releases of 2019 and it finally launched to great fanfare on April 26. Open world. titles like Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto and Far Cry have been outrageously popular in recent times and the zombie genre is flourishing. Days Gone therefore looked perfectly poised to capture the zeitgeist and Sony’s marketing team did a great job in ramping up the excitement among the PS4 community.
In the inaugural Patch Notes – a simple series where I cover some of the news of the week and offer my views – we chat about the new Oculus Rift announcement and the future of VR, as well as Google’s new game streaming service, Google Stadia. Oh, and there’s the whole Steam vs Epic thing.
Just a quick message to wish you all a fantastic Christmas/holidays. I hope you have a brilliant day full of fun and happiness, whether you’re just chilling at home with some games and movies or getting together with the whole family.

Welcome, my dear readers, to the top 10 games of 2018, spanning Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This is the year I’ll always remember as the time EA declared that nobody was interested in single player games anymore. It was a stupid thing to say at the time, but a slew of fantastic single player games has made EA look even more absurd. Indeed, all round it has been a superb year for games regardless of the platform you play on.
God damn, weekend, you have to stop sneaking up on me like this!
Yup, the weekend is here yet again, thundering into our lives like a rhino that’s desperate for a Mars Bar. Why would a Rhino be desperate for a Mars Bar? I dunno. Just go with it.
