Attack On #Gamergate – The heck did we miss!?

DEATH-TO-ALL-BUT-GAMERS

As a lot of our readers are probably aware, we’ve been on holiday this past week or so. In fact, the night before we left was when we found out about the whole “Quinnspiracy” thing, involving herself and Five Guys that were a part of the gaming industry in some way. We’ve covered all that we know here. What’s interesting is that since playing catch-up, on things, we’ve found this whole #Gamergate nonsense. But what is that, so far as we can tell? Well, from what it looks like, it looks as though there has been a massive push from major gaming news publications blogs stating that gamers are a dying breed and that gamers themselves are the biggest problem … Continue reading

SpaceCom is a game that we’ve had a really hard time pigeonholing as a particular genre. This is because, at a glance, you could very easily make the connection between itself and a regular 4X game.

Battlefield Hardline Gametypes Gameplay

battlefield-hardline-gameplay-001

A little while ago, the Battlefield Hardline Beta ended. The beta gave players the chance to play in a couple of game modes that would see them take on the roles as cops and robbers in this game. Please not that the below footage is of an in-progress game and that things might change. Like, for example, hopefully things change so that there’s more destructibility, much like in Battlefield 3/4. Hopefully. We did notice a little bit of Levelution going on in there. –

Interview With Spawn Point Small Bar

Coming to Sydney soon is a new gaming bar where gamers can go to hang out, have some drinks and play some video games socially. The scene here in Australia is quite a small one, with only a few similar bars, most notably Mana Bar, being open.
