Are you a ‘real gamer’?

Well, I'd like to say that I am a real gamer, I mean, would you? If you are the kind of person to who the word console means so much more than cheering up someone upset, if you stay up to some ungodly hour of the night until you lose a round/ win a round, or if you've spent some insane amount...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sgfh2DJdzF0 Bug haven, the game that looked so good but in reality riddled with bugs like no tomorrow.

Competitive eSports seems somewhat of an odd topic to the general Australian public. If you were to broach the discussion to a stranger, their opinion on the matter could range from anything between an inability to grasp the appeal, to intense passion and satisfaction.

Now that it’s out: Pre-release preview of the new Overwatch character

It’s not bold to claim that Blizzard is dedicated to its player base. It doesn’t seem long ago now we were treated with the second addition to the original Overwatch family, Sombra.
