The Sport of Kings, or cruel animal exploitation? Innocent pastime, or gateway to a dangerous gambling addiction? Upper class nonsense, or a viable career for short people?

Ubisoft’s The Division has seen somewhat of a resurgence of late, with the new Survival update becoming an unexpected hit! This second major expansion of the game robs you of your hard-earned gear, and infects you with an illness. To survive on your journey to the centre of the map you’ll need to find clothes, food, and medicine alongside the usual NPCs and Rogue Agents intent on doing you harm. It turns the race for the best gear completely on its head, and really has tempted us back to Manhattan. Join Laura over on our YouTube channel as she tackles this new mode.

If you play Halo 5 this weekend – that’s 26-27 November – you’ll be the lucky recipient of an exclusive in-game emblem, Thanks Given.

We also like the idea of poor, defenceless, tasty birds donning armour and equipping Designated Marksmen Rifles whenever the Bernard Matthews truck rolls around… Play Halo 5 this weekend to get the elusive Thanks Given turkey emblem. Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours, from us at 343! pic.twitter.com/2PtCSXjUUR — Halo (@Halo) November 24, … Read More »
