By Brad S Apr 4 2013 add comment

We’ve put together a huge gallery of extra large wallpaper-sized (2560×1440) images of BioShock’s Elizabeth. It’s been a week since BioShock Infinite was released and reviewed, and the game has been incredibly well received by gamers and publications across the globe. One of BioShock Infinite’s biggest assets is Elizabeth, the girl you rescue while you play as Booker DeWitt. Elizabeth is a computer-controlled character who accompanies you throughout most of the game after you rescue her; but she isn’t [...]

By Harry Tidball Apr 3 2013 add comment

If you enjoyed the original DayZ mod that was available with Arma 2: Combined Operations or Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, you have most likely been keeping a close eye on the upcoming standalone version. However, with the lead developer Dean “Rocket” Hall last year promising a November 2012 release, you may have been put off by the fact that it hasn’t been released yet. Fear not! There are many reasons why you should still be interested in the game and [...]

The ending of BioShock Infinite is a big shocker, with both plot twists and mind-twisting events leading up to the big bang. If you’ve completed BioShock Infinite and want to [...]

Tomb Raider: The post-review Q&A

By Brad S Mar 19 2013 add comment

Tomb Raider (2013) was an epic game and we’re glad that you have enjoyed our Tomb Raider review posted last week. The game is one of the most refreshing games we have played in a while (if you haven’t read our in-depth review, I encourage you to check it out) and it looks especially good on PC; I’d even call it a great contender with Crysis, graphics-wise. We’ve gotten plenty of questions from readers that it justified making a [...]

The Sony PlayStation 4 event in New York just ended but probably the most exciting, key part of the event happened 2 hours ago at the beginning – the confirmation of the PlayStation 4 name and its key features such as hardware, social sharing capabilities, ‘instant on’ and ability to interface with the PlayStation Vita.
