Posted by on Jan 19, 2015 | 0 comments

The mayhem that zombies create has always been particularly interesting among game creators thanks to the zombie killin’ thirst among gamers. With the Walking Dead TV series this genre has become popular again, although the video game has been awfully disastrous. Don’t even think of playing it! The Zombie theme is popular in various types of games, from PC games to casino games, although I haven’t seen much Zombie themed slot games for real money that Aussies call pokies, those funny and joyful people. Nevertheless, here are 5 all-time best zombie games. Zombies Ate My Neighbours This...

Is Console Gaming Dead?

Posted by on Nov 20, 2014 | 0 comments

A year has passed now since console giants and competitors Sony and Microsoft launched their respective PlayStation 4 and XBox One models. Both products have had their own individual success, with Sony reporting a 200 per cent increase in video games sales, while Microsoft enjoyed $24.52 billion in revenue in the first quarter of 2014. What a difference a few months can make, however. By April of this year, Forbes reported that global PC revenue had far surpassed that of consoles, signalling a worrying change for both companies. Of course, this is not nearly as worrying a topic for Microsoft...

Video games that allow players to indulge in their favourite sports, safely from the comfort of their sofas, have never been more popular than they are currently. Games such as the FIFA soccer series, NFL, NHL and NBA games are all doing brilliantly in the gaming charts, but developers have been trying hard to ensure their sports gaming franchises are not just confined to the realm of the video game console. As smart phones and tablets have come to the fore, game developers have viewed these new mediums as a way to continue player interactions with their games, releasing companion apps. Here...

By invited author Crystal Lothbrook Rocksmith  Rocksmith is used for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PCs and is mainly for use with an electric guitar which can be plugged into a console by way of a “Hercules” adapter. The game is recognised as a fun way of effectively improving your guitar playing; a survey showing that a staggering 95% of players improved as a result of using Rocksmith. The game uses a virtual fretboard with colour co-ordination to help you pick out the suitable notes for that particular song, and the screen shows the progress you are making, the difficulty level, the...

Posted by on May 19, 2014 | 0 comments

On the 23rd of May, myself and a team of people who clearly didn’t have much on that weekend set out on a virtual flight around the world. In a nutshell, this was the master plan:   How did we get on? Well, it did end up taking three days in the end and it was one hell of a gruelling flight, but we manage to do it.

Although the target was $2,000, we raised at least $2,830...

What’s up

Posted by on Jan 10, 2014 | 3 comments

So the site has been pretty dormant of late, and I’ve avoided talking about it with much the same gusto as I avoid doing the dishes, though it never stops me  pointing at the sink and triumphantly yelling “I’m just letting them soak!” Many of you have been wondering what’s up with the minimal posting schedule… or rather, many of you haven’t.
