  1. SquidGrips - Official Review and Contest!

    It’s no secret that avid gamers sometimes get into situations, where, despite their best efforts they just cannot pull through and they face defeat. I’m sure anyone who has been gaming long enough (in a competitive scene or otherwise) will eventually be beaten or otherwise defeated and of course, it won’t be their fault. Perhaps the connection just wasn’t holding up well enough? The other player was cheating? I’m sure you’ve heard that before. One of the most common excuses however, is “oh...
  2. Ubisoft Banning Games Purchased From G2A

    Update: As of yesterday, Ubisoft has started to reactivate some of the games that were previously deactivated. In an official statement, Ubisoft explained that they are only reactivating games that the user has played. However, they will continue to deactivate games that have not been played yet. Source: IGN Thanks Zero for the heads up Original article: Ubisoft have once again displeased their ever diminishing fanbase with a very annoying yet totally justifiable move. They have started...
  3. Star Wars Battlefront 3 Pre-Alpha Gameplay

    Anyone familiar with the Star Wars universe will know all too well that the Battlefront series is perhaps one of, if not THE most successful set of games in the Star Wars universe. Battlefront 2 was and still is one of the best and most popular games among fans of the universe, and is still played online to this day through Game Ranger services on PC. Most fans were ecstatic when they learned of the (at the time) impending third instalment to the series. Unfortunately though, this project...
  4. Heavy Bullets - Review and Recommendation!

    Heavy Bullets looks and feels a lot like something you’d find at an arcade in the 80’s. And that’s fine, because the execution is fantastic despite its underwhelming amount of content. Heavy Bullets is a retro themed first person shooter slash dungeon crawler (without a dungeon) slash classic arcade FPS. When I say dungeon crawler I mean it in a sense that the objective of the game is to get from point A to point B, kill things, not get killed by said things, and enjoy the immense (though...
  5. Xbox One Mini Controller!

    For those of you who own an Xbox One and dislike the big clunky controller, you need not fear any longer. Power A will be releasing officially licenced “mini” controllers for the Xbox One. These controllers will come in two colour variants: green and black. Pictures can be seen in the spoiler below, showcasing the two colour variants from different angles. The controller is built with intent to cater to those with smaller hands (obviously with it being a smaller controller). The controller...
  6. Steam Music!

    Valve have released their very own Music player for users to enjoy! Steam Music Player was originally announced back in February and has finally come to life. To mark the release of the Steam Music Player, Valve offered a sale on numerous Valve titles, such as the Half Life Series, Garrys Mod, Left 4 Dead or Counter Strike. All very popular games within the Steam community and very big names for gaming in general. Along with those titles, buyers will also receive the soundtrack to those...
  7. Continued Xbox One Woes, Delayed in China.

    Residents of China will have to be without the Xbox One console for quite some time, as the release date for that part of the world has been pushed back. The console is now set to release at the end of this year, but no exact date has been given. Microsoft stated the reason for the delay is to give themselves a bit more time to deliver the best possible experiences. Fans in China were set to receive the console this coming Tuesday, will now be forced to wait until the end of 2014, but even...
  8. Playstation Now beta available on PS3

    An open beta for Sony’s Playstation Network Service known as “Playstation Now” was released for the PS3. As of now the service is only available in the USA and parts of Canada. No information for a worldwide beta was released unfortunately. It is highly recommended that users have a 5Mbps connection at the very least, which is perhaps an understatement as this is a streaming service, and you’re not going to be enjoying yourself or getting your money’s worth if your connection cannot handle...
  9. Brand New Xbox 360 Bundles!

    Still an avid 360 gamer? Is your console on its last legs? Have you been affected by the dreaded red rings of death? Well lucky for you, Microsoft have introduced some upcoming 360 bundles, including a never before seen blue on blue console! Clearly Microsoft feels these bundles were worthy of distribution, which tells us that they still have faith in their 360 sales, or perhaps they are just trying to squeeze as much money as they can out of the 360 before it dies? What do you think? First...
  10. Final founder of PopCap leaves company!

    As of now, none of the original founders from PopCap Games (creators of the Plants VS. Zombies series) exist at the company. John Vechey, who was the last co-founder to remain with the company since CEO Dave Roberts and other co-founder Jason Kapalka left PopCap in January of this year, has left PopCap. PopCap are not finished however, because as you may or may not know, they are a subsidiary of Electronic Arts, who purchased the company back in 2011 for 750 million dollars. EA have since...
  11. Resident Evil Revelations 2, announcement and details!

    About a fortnight ago, the leak of several images containing references to a sequel to the hit survival horror game “Resident Evil: Revelations” excited many fans, as you would expect. Well just a few days ago, at a Sony press conference in Japan (Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia press conference), the rumours were confirmed and the game was announced by Capcom producer Masachika Kawata. Revelations was released in 2012 solely for the 3DS console, but after it was received as very...
  12. Borderlands to receive Multiplayer again!

    After the announcement that Gamespy would be closing down and all of its supported games going offline earlier this year, it became sadly apparent that vault hunters wouldn’t be able to spend time in the original setting of Pandora, on the highly acclaimed (and fantastic introductory game to the hit series Borderlands) Borderlands . There is no need to fret though, as it has become clear that the game will be updated with Steamworks, and multiplayer will become available again! It is not a...
  13. Gods Will Be Watching: Review!

    “Right click to try again”. Throughout my entire life I have never had to read a single phrase so many times in such a short period of time; then I played “Gods Will Be Watching”. If it was not already abundantly clear from that intro, the game is hard. Not like Dark Souls where the game crushes your spirit to the point that you want to give up, but you can’t because you MUST defeat the next boss. Not like Super Meat boy, where you get so frustrated at not being able to jump over a single...
  14. Fatal Frame Trailer Released.

    A trailer was released today for the upcoming Wii-U title – “Fatal Frame”. Fatal Frame is a horror adventure game, and it will act as a sequel to the previous titles (Fatal frame 1 and 2) in the series that were released for the Playstation 2 and Xbox consoles back in 2001/2002. In this instalment in the series, players will take on the role of Kozukata Yuuri. She will utilise her powers of being able to see spirits, and later, her power to bring spirits back from the afterlife by making...
  15. Tekken 7 announced!

    Bandai Namco revealed to us yesterday, their upcoming Tekken sequel – “Tekken 7”. This upcoming Tekken is said to be the final game in the highly acclaimed series, that first came about in 1994 as an arcade game, and later brought a port to the Sony Playstation and paved the way for many sequels. It has not been revealed officially if this is the end of the series, or rather just the end of the in game quarrel between the Mishimas, who have had an ongoing feud since the beginning of the...
