With an influx of adventure games calling themselves 'point and click', it's easy to throw COWCAT's adventure game Demtrios - The BIG Cynical Adventure under the same category. Demetrios is more of an interactive novel; a true point and click adventure, but does it capture the charm of point and click adventures of long ago? The premise is simple: you play as Bjorn Thonen, the lazy son of an antiques dealer who lives in Paris. When he mysteriously becomes unconscious, he soon realises his apartment was broken into and has stolen a tablet from an ancient statue that so happens ... Read More »
There comes a time when AAA titles like to milk everything it can in regards to merchandise and heavy promotion for their games, and Activision is no stranger to this process. When The Taken King DLC was released, they held a promotion with Red Bull to unlock in-game shaders and such. In fact, seems like energy drinks and gaming go hand-in-hand, so to speak, but I digress. Spotted today by yours truly, picking up a can of Rockstar energy drink (available in various flavours) will grant you a redeemable code on the ring-pull which you then enter on the website ...

Once upon a time, there was a team of developers who went by the name of 'Lionhead'. They introduced us to the world of Albion with its first outing of Fable, on the original Xbox back in 2004. As the years went by, they released more titles in the franchise, but to some, each release came with a curse: storytelling and gameplay were getting weaker. So, they try their hand at a Kinect-only game, which did not bode well for the fans of Fable. Their last and only hope came in the form of a free-to-play 1v4 MMO that seemed ... Read More »

The ONLY Rugby League game available on consoles is that of the Rugby League Live series, by Australian developers Big Ant Studios and the fourth iteration in the series is almost upon us. Even though they are games rugby fans such as myself cry out for, they're generally piss-poor in comparison to big budget sports titles, but judging by this new gameplay footage, it looks as though the developers down under have learnt from past mistakes and improved upon immensely. Check out the gameplay trailer for Rugby League Live 4 below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukHUFdwvIro Rugby League Live 4 is to be released ... Read More »
