Console wars are thing among fans of games.  I don't really see a point because I believe it should be play what makes you happy for whatever reason.  Hardware developers strive to be the best selling console manufacturers on the market but don't ten to let things like mud slinging get into the mix.  Microsoft however seems to be taking a more direct and vocal approach to take down Sony's console sales lead.

If you've been a gamer long enough, we've all had that dream.  Sitting and playing your favorite game and getting paid to do it.  Who wouldn't want to get paid a great wage for doing what they love?  I've grown up under the mindset of "if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life."  If you get a job doing something you love - it'll never feel like work.  We can't all be so lucky but gamers all over the world have had their eyes opened wide thanks to the growing popularity of eSports.  Thanks ...

At the time of writing, the app has been rated as a 1.4 out of 5 score with 78 reviews.  Streaming live sporting events have been missing as well as a search function.  Hopefully Microsoft can improve on the Twitter app to make it more like the ...

Back in 1980, Namco created a loveable character named Pac-Man who, over the last 36 years, has become a staple in gaming history.  With such a simple concept, Pac-Man has stood the test of time as a game that is easily accessible by all, no matter the age or skill level. Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is an edgy but true to form take on the classic that adds its own addictive spin. The traditional rules of eating small pellets and not touching the roaming ghosts are long gone.  Here, this intense Pac-Man adventure involves eating pellets to fill your energy bar - store ...

As anyone who has played Destiny in the last couple years, the urge to go back and play raids such as Crota's End and Vault of Glass has been increasing with time.  Once Rise of Iron comes out though, King's Fall will also be on that list of "old" raids.  What if we could go back to them and they actually had a reason to complete them again?  Well, Bungie's Destiny: Rise of Iron lead Christopher Barrett has finally been vocal about the old experiences guardians have been missing. Barrett has stated that the topic of old raids returning is ... Read More »
