Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are 4K ready, but does it...

Both Microsoft and Sony have confirmed that their next generation consoles are in fact 4K ready. For those of you unsure what 4K actually means; It's the latest resolution in high-definition televisions. The current 4K resolutions are anything from 3840 × 2160 to 4096 × 3112, this is sometimes also known as Ultra HD.

I recently read an article on Stuff.tv titled Sony PS4 vs Xbox One: the 4K war begins and though it provides a positive argument as to why it should matter; to me personally it doesn't. I'm happy with my 1080p HD TV which doesn't actually put out any HD TV, the reason for this? I'm not the biggest HD fan, it makes my eyes sting, and it just doesn't make that much difference to me.

Shut up About the EE Power Bar “Hidden” Charge…

This weekend my Twitter and Facebook feeds were awash with people complaining to one of the UK's biggest networks, EE, over the supposed "hidden" charge and contract that users were getting into when they acquired their "free" portable battery charger.

Awkward Splitscreen: Game Night’s Greatest Curse

Splitscreen is a concept that should never leave gaming's consciousness. When all those online systems switch off, having splitscreen multiplayer means your game still has a chance of being brought out whenever someone's friends are over. Though the money dries up, the good times (and therefore goodwill towards the developers) keep rolling in. But there's a phenomenon within local multiplayer that really needs to stop – the terrible trials presented by what I've come to call “Awkward Splitscreen.”

prime day

I Missed Amazon Prime Day, and I’m Glad I did.

Amazon has turned 20 years-old and to celebrate this momentous milestone they decided to hold one of the biggest sale events of the company's history and have called it Prime Day. It was supposed to be bigger than Black Friday sales, but instead it turned out to be the worst garage sale you may have ever been to.

Are Disney’s Live-action Remakes Getting a Little Too Much?

In the news today there was word that one of the writers for Game of Thrones would be working on a live-action remake of Sword in the Stone. Now, that's news in itself, which I'm not really going to touch upon, but what I am going to talk about is my thoughts on Disney's current slate of live-action remakes and whether I personally think they should just be left well alone.
LEGO Worlds

LEGO Worlds, is it a Minecraft Killer? Probably Not.

A few days ago Warner Bros. Interactive and LEGO announced and subsequently released LEGO Worlds on Steam as an Early Access title and it's immediately apparent this was released as a competitor and rival to the insanely popular Minecraft has taken the world by storm over the last few years. The big question a lot of people are asking is, will LEGO Worlds kill Minecraft?

Does VR have a Future or is it a Fad?

So unless you live under a rock you'll be aware there are several Virtual Reality headsets currently in development among many companies in the gaming industry. We have the flagship Oculus Rift who have partnered with Microsoft, Sony's Project Morpheus, Valve is also making SteamVR with HTC, and also Starbreeze's appropriately named StarVR. These are all new VR headsets that have been announced in the past few years and could be a new way of experiencing games in the future. Or perhaps it could be another tombstone in the graveyard of failed peripherals, like Kinect or Playstation Move or anything else that was supposed to enhance the gaming experience.

Bethesda’s DOOM Reveal: My Likes, Dislikes and Nitpicks

I've been playing DOOM for quite a bit of my time on this Earth, first firing up the game when I was about 10, and every now and again in the time since I've blasted away the odd demon or two, playing around with the seemingly endless supply of maps and mods from a community that still manages to bring out some great content even today, 21 years after DOOM first released.

Miserable Old Bastard: Fiendish Freemium Gaming and the Demon DLC!

DLC, love it or hate it, it's here to stay! I personally despise it, well most of it anyway. Since it's conception in the womb of a title called The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, disguised as horse armour and priced to make the average, drooling idiot pay for a copy while PC gamers laughed in the faces of a console generation that grabbed at anything they could get.
