Feature: Playing on a Budget

Written by Anastasia Valens and published on Mar 3, 2016.


PC gaming can be an expensive hobby, especially when it comes to hardware. Not every gamer can afford to build their own computer, especially when they're stuck with the most basic multipurpose setups around. Luckily, there's several steps that can be taken to play video games on low-end hardware. Whether it's using low framerate configuration edits, comparing system specifications before purchasing, or simply buying well optimized games, low-end gaming can be a manageable experience for players on a budget.

Sony E3 2015 Presser Highlights

Written by Oliver Campbell and published on Jun 18, 2015.


"Holy moses." That's all I can say. You know that card of "bank error in your favor" in Monopoly and Uncle Pennybags is reeling backwards in surprise? That image perfect sums up this presser out of Sony. The 2nd of the "Big 3" press events (Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo), Sony came in running a stark counter to Microsoft whom presented a significantly more focused hardware leaning presentation. Sony brought the games to the show. They didn't just bring the games, they brought tears to many people's eyes and screams of joy.

Microsoft E3 2015 Presser Highlights

Written by Oliver Campbell and published on Jun 16, 2015.


The first of the big 3 (Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony) did their presser today with Microsoft opening up the show. In what some might call a surprising turn-about, Microsoft started firing shots across the bow in a big way. This presser was all about the games and features to make your Xbox One experience even better. Considering how much the Xbox One has struggled since its launch, this might be the presser that the die hard Xbox fan pays attention to the most!

Breaking Arrows

Written by Maiyannah Bishop and published on Oct 14, 2014.


Almost three months ago, one of the biggest scandals to hit the video game industry rocked the social media circles of game developers, publishers, journalists, and the gamers alike.

Like a series of tumultuous demolition explosions, a series of events ripped through that scene, leaving some people throwing accusations, others trying to cash in for five minutes of fame, and many many more that were simply bewildered, and suddenly told by the very media that covered their industry which they previously trusted telling them that they are dead, and they are just angry because secretly, they are sexist, racist, violent, assholes, who hate women and the LGBT community.

That generalisation went over, as you might imagine, like a lead balloon, and the #GamerGate movement has risen to challenge that, and the corruption these scandals revealed.

This series isn't about the personalities. It's about the gamers in between. These are their stories and views.
