We’ve already had enough of this Trash Dove

thrash doveSince the beginning of the current week, I have noticed a new trend, or should I say gif everywhere on social media. Usually I can laugh off a funny or trending graphic, but this one just fails to entertain me, and no matter where I look, the comments section of Facebook for example are just littered with the same gif, and it’s ruining my experience! Where did it come from?! Continue reading We’ve already had enough of this Trash Dove

A rant about the state of digital stores

For years now Steam has been top dog when it comes to gaming platforms and in particular its store had praise heaped upon it. Self proclaimed citizens of the “master race” would look down upon mere console mortals and boast about the superiority of the service and its store front. Console digital stores meanwhile varied from being over priced to unforgiving when a refund was requested and we could only look over at Steam with adorning eyes. Times however have changed on both sides of the divide and it’s definitely not a positive change. Digital stores are a mess and the industry leaders need to up their game and sort them out.

Could Xbox Scorpio be a game changer for Microsoft?

Project ScorpioI’ve made no secret over the last few months with my dissatisfaction of the games console industry, specifically on the hardware side as well as some rather uninspired game releases. The PS4 Pro and Xbox Scorpio added to my frustration initially but one of the developers of Ori and the Blind Forest gave some hints at what Microsoft might be about to do and that makes me very excited, perhaps I got it wrong when I looked upon Scorpio as a wasted opportunity?

Face Scanning should feature in more games

face scanningFor whatever reason this morning, face scanning popped into my head, and it brought back a good few memories of playing through Fight Night 4 and Champion, as well as the classic Rainbow Six Vegas titles. Some games still allow you to do it, particularly sports titles, but should the feature be more prominent? Continue reading Face Scanning should feature in more games

Beginner’s Guide to GTA Online

gta onlineI have contemplated writing a GTA Online guide for some time, but considering it released in 2013 initially, it felt like I may be too late.

What to expect from Red Dead Online…again

red dead onlineThis year, or perhaps delayed into 2018, Rockstar Games will release Red Dead Redemption 2. We have already been graced by a teaser trailer on the same day we got our first glimpse of the Nintendo Switch. You can guess which one garnered more attention. However, as statistics show, Rockstar’s last release, Grand Theft Auto V became more popular due to its GTA Online counterpart, so it would be silly to think otherwise about a wild west version to come too.

Toxicity in Gaming

toxic gamersToxicity in the gaming community. It’s a huge problem. I have been wanting to write a piece on this subject for a long time as it’s been something that has bothered me for the better part of the last few years. You cannot write a piece like this without stepping on a few toes and kicking a few shins so I should apologize preemptively for the people that this will undoubtedly offend. Rather than seeing this as me calling people out, look at this as a wakeup call to become more helpful with other gamers in the online gaming setting and understand that we are all here to enjoy and partake of our favorite hobby together.

Is the First Person Shooter Genre getting stale?

Arma 3 First Person ShooterOne thing we aren’t short of in gaming is First person Shooter titles but as popular as they are I’m beginning to wonder if they are becoming stale. These days I find myself gravitating towards more complex games like Arma 3 or Squad whilst recent releases like Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 have left me frustrated. For one reason or another those games just fail to appeal to me like their predecessors once did.
