  • Beyond gameplay: 10 video game cinematics that’ll give you chills

    There is nothing quite like sitting down to play a game and being greeted by the most beautiful and epic cinematic sequence. One of my earliest memories of these are the Warcraft cutscenes, specifically Warcraft III, which was one of the standards held up as the pinnacle of awesome animation in my 3D Animation course at the time. Of course since then, epic cutscenes à la Warcraft have become a staple, and if there are no amazing cutscenes that hold you in suspense, have you sitting on the edge of your seat, well then, your game better have something amazing...

  • 5 videos that will get you excited about ‘The Crew’ all over again

    The Crew has probably been one of the most eagerly anticipated racing games of recent memory. Sure, it’s not as pure as the Forza or Gran Turismo series, but its new open world, social take on an age-old genre has got many a tongue wagging, and many a right foot tapping. The game has been in my Christmas stocking list for quite a while now and tomorrow it’ll finally be released to a worldwide and extremely patient-up-to-now audience. A new take on driving games will see a more social, open world experience than before. Think of it like GTA V with an...

  • ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ gets a load of uber zombies in Havoc DLC pack [Video]

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s trailer series has been epic thus far. Factor in those cut scenes, and we have something that could easily be a movie, rather than a game. Add some zombies to the mix however, and you have an apocalyptic dream world, bullet-flying nut house that made Resident Evil so lovable. I’m talking about the games of course, not the awful movies. Today, gamers are greeted with another trailer that shows the first chapter of the “Exo Zombies” co-op mode, coming in the January 2015 Havoc DLC pack. We’re not just talking normal zombies here either. These chaps have...

  • ‘GTA V’ meets David Attenborough in this underwater mockumentary [Video]

    Rockstar Games has done the gaming world a favour with GTA V. The game is an absolute beast, and I’m not just talking about the bountiful wildlife you can actually possess and play. 8-BIT BASTARD, a YouTube comedy gaming channel noted for its Sopranos reenactments using GTA, has now made a documentary of the game’s sea life entitled “Into The Deep”. Using the game’s submersible, the gamer takes the plunge into the murky waters surrounding Blaine County and Los Santos to uncover some of the wildlife, flora and undersea collectables one can hope to find. And it’s pretty good. There’s also a rather...

  • Unboxing the MTN Steppa 2 and MTN Steppa Tablet [Video]

    MTN‘s latest foray into the budget mobile device market sees the debut of the Steppa Tablet and the Steppa 2 smartphone — a beefier version of the Steppa released last year. Both devices are powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 200 SoCs clocked at 1.2GHz. 512MB RAM and 4GB storage are also present on both devices, while the MTN Steppa Tablet benefits from a larger 1024×600 7″ screen. The Tablet also boasts a 5MP snapper at the rear, with a rather interesting colour scheme of a fake silver-plated rear and white plastic.

  • Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones: Iron from Ice’ video game trailer is here [Video]

    Earlier this week, we unveiled screenshots from what looked to be the upcoming Telltale-created Game of Thrones game. And it was. The studio has released a trailer based on the TV series and novels, that looks to have all those characters we simply love to hate. The game will use Telltale’s usual episodic formula, with the first of six episodes dubbed “Iron From Ice”. Read more: Is this the Game of Thrones video game we all so desperately crave? While the trailer doesn’t give too much away in terms of storyline, the animation reveals that the TV cast reprise their roles in the...

  • New Far Cry 4 story trailer proves that we’re born to be wild

    Far Cry 4 launches fairly soon, 18 November to be accurate. And the best way to get hyped up about any game has to be through an official launch trailer. From what’s happening here, we can see that Far Cry 4 is going to be a heck of a lot more epic than the previous entry in the series. The trailer quickly shows us hero Ajay Ghale who’s come back home to Kryat to scatter his mother’s ashes. The problem though, is that Ajay’s old hometown has now been overtaken by a despotic dictator, King Pagan Min. This trailer is fairly...

  • Rockstar confirms GTA V First Person Mode with chaotic kickass new video

    If you thought you were excited for GTA V before, wait until you feast your face on this new video. First-person mode is something not associated with the GTA series, but my, it has been needing it — not because GTA is useless fun either. Since gaming has evolved, and the power of consoles has increased exponentially, first-person mode is the perfect way to immerse the gamer in the chaos — exactly what any GTA fan wants. GTA is really a drunk-on-freedom FPS in hiding. The video blurb highlights the new additions and features available on GTA V and GTA Online: …a new targeting...

  • The most definitive iPhone 6 ‘leak’ is here, and it’s scrumptious

    We’ve been covering the iPhone 6’s barrage of rumours and leaks for a good while now, documenting the phone’s transformation from concept, to dummy to (hopefully) the real thing in a few weeks time. But we can safely say that all the rumours of the iPhone’s purported sleek new body has been wrong thus far, at least judging by the latest video. The Gimli-bearded @Doldo411, YouTuber humorist extraordinaire, unveils the first live action shots of the iPhone 6, and what results is pure amazement. Not only is the iPhone slimmer and sleeker than we had previously believed, Apple is allegedly using...

  • Latest Destiny trailer kicks ass in more ways than one

    Destiny is coming, quickly. With less than three weeks before Bungie and Activision releases their flagship title, and perhaps one of the most eagerly anticipated titles in gaming history, there’s a new gameplay trailer lighting up YouTube’s servers. Who knew post-apocalyptic scenes seem so inviting? Showcased in 1080p, the game will be available for current-gen and legacy Microsoft and Sony consoles, although the latter will be scaled down to 720p. The trailer itself highlights the multiplayer open-world shooter landscapes that Bungie and Activision spent around US$500-million developing. And while much will change from the current beta to the final product, the...
