This is little pop culture nugget capitalises on the current popularity of the walking dead and is chock full of rapid click action. If you know Bejewelled, then you may have heard of PopCap, they’re the devils behind its creation and Plants vs. Zombies. They’re coming to specialise in smart game design that reduces the […]

Diane Spencer is a lady. I verified this in the way that you usually do—through asking and being given a baffled look of incomprehension.

bru·tal·i·ty noun: The state or quality of being ruthless, cruel, harsh, or unrelenting. To say that CoD5 was brutal would be the understatement of the century. It makes Rambo 4 look like a brawl outside Shooters on a Saturday night. The CoD series, as our attentive readers will know, is my favourite FPS series. The […]

In the lead up to the release of Dawn of War II, Relic claimed to be producing a redefining new type of strategy game. It would do away with the conventional base building and resource hording in favour of dynamic action. And I was inclined to believe Relic’s claim because of their history of innovative […]

Every once in awhile a modification for a popular game comes along, and everyone wants to play it. Its ground breaking, its fun, and it consumes all your fucking time. On top of all that, its usually free. There have been some great mods floating around the internet of late, and there is a great […]
