Why I chose Heroes of the Storm as my MOBA

Why I Chose Heroes of the Storm as my MOBA

July 3, 2015 | by Vince Shuley

Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBAs) can be an intimidating affair. As I wrote of my experience trying DOTA 2 earlier this year, plunging into the deep end with a complex MOBA such as DOTA2 can quickly lead to frustration, with little recourse but to simply tough it out while you learn your hero’s strengths, weaknesses and how to counter opposing attacks…

Rampage Retro Reflection

June 30, 2015 | by Vince Shuley

The wilful damage to public property is a common theme amongst video games these days. Whether from a tank, military helicopter or stealthily planted explosives, bringing down a tall, man-made structure comes with a certain catharsis…

Why the PC Gaming Show at E3 was a Great Idea

June 22, 2015 | by Vince Shuley

This year’s E3 really was a good’un. So many great games were revealed with plenty of release dates before the end of the year, a welcome change from 2014’s long list of teasers that we had to wait until the following year to play…

Dungeons 2 Review – Flattering Fun

April 30, 2015 | by Vince Shuley

I generally try to avoid carbon copy games. Thankfully, this practice is less rampant in the PC and console space than it is on mobile, but occasionally we get one coming through the pipeline that manages to offer the most sincerest form of flattery in honour of its tribute…

Atari: Game Over

Atari: Game Over Sets its Version of the Record Straight

April 21, 2015 | by Vince Shuley

E.T. has long suffered the notoriety of not only being labelled as the worst video game of all time, but also as being the catalyst that lead to Atari falling on its sword in the early ’80s. Further salt in the wound was the urban legend of millions of E.T. cartridges being dumped in a landfill outside of Alamogordo, New Mexico…
