Looking for your FPS story fix? Battlefield V will have you covered

A small minority of gamers took exception to Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII‘s decision to do away with the traditional single-player campaign in order to try something a little different. Those players can instead look to Battlefield V if they’re feeling a gaping void that only a single-player section in a largely multiplayer game can fill — EA and DICE are keeping their campaign i...[Read More]

Acer announces its top-end Intel-powered Predator Helios 500 gaming notebook

Acer, at an event in New York yesterday, revealed the devices that we can expect to see from the company for the next few months. Leading the pack, in performance as well as (probable) pricing is Acer’s new high-end Intel-toting gaming notebook flagship, the Predator Helios 500.

Level up your Nintendo Switch: Grab these essentials to make Ninty’s best even better

Nintendo’s Switch console was a huge hit last year, turning out to be impressive enough to take away Stuff‘s coveted Gadget of the Year 2017 award at this year’s awards ceremony. The console is good. It’s very good. But, and it almost hurts to say this, it could be better. But that’s only because there’s an impressive lot of extras out one year on, a collection ...[Read More]

Need some sneakers for your Sonic cosplay? Puma has you covered

The Sonic the Hedgehog fandom is one of the most maligned on the internet (look up some Sonic OC, if you’re feeling edgy) but even they deserve something nice now and again. Puma has a little gift for them, and regular sneaker fans who just happen to have some Sega nostalgia, in the shape of two pairs of Sonic-themed sneakers: the  RS-0 Sonic and the RS-0 Dr. Eggman. The Sonic the Hedgehog i...[Read More]

Get on the bus: Fortnite will be putting up $100 million in eSports tournament prize funding

Remember how your parents told you you’d never get rich playing video games? Feel free to send them this link and a GIF of Nelson from The Simpsons. Epic Games, the studio behind Fortnite Battle Royale, is going to be putting up a lot of cash for the upcoming esports season of the battle royale title. How much cash? A cool $100 million, a number so high that we’re not even going to bot...[Read More]

Black Ops 4 – When to expect it and how it has changed

Multiplayer? Check. Zombies? Check. Campaign? Nah… Like clockwork, it’s time for Treyarch to reveal their newest addition to the Black Ops series with the fourth instalment releasing in October. The official launch was a whirlwind of new mechanics, modes and the not-so-shocking dropping of the solo campaign. Many internet-dwellers have expressed their disgust with Call of Duty opting to drop...[Read More]

Gaming gets more inclusive with Microsoft’s Xbox Adaptive Controller

Most gamers take for granted the fact that they’re able to hold a game controller in both hands and go roaming around virtual worlds whenever they want (when school and work allow, of course). Microsoft has been giving some thought to those who can’t do that, for various reasons, and has come up with the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a gaming peripheral designed for those with disabilities...[Read More]

The best mobile adaptations of console & PC games available right now

Smaller versions of console and PC games being released on mobile is the new ‘big thing’ in the gaming world. It gets the word out (because mobile is cheaper to play and easier to access), and people can game on the move — this is especially important for PC gamers who, by definition, tend to be tied to their massive rig in order to game. Okay, we know not all PC gamers will inhe...[Read More]

RAGE 2 looking like a very different beast in first gameplay trailer

Some of you might remember Rage (or RAGE), an iD Software-created post-apocalyptic title from 2010 that featured solid driving and shooting mechanics but had little else to commend it. We thought we’d seen the back of it but it seems Bethesda are issuing a sequel called, predictably, RAGE 2. Also predictably, RAGE 2 has undergone an overhaul. Gone are the drab colours and limited environment...[Read More]

Soon you’ll be able to stream Steam games from PC to smartphone

Steam is an amazing invention, a cloud-based library of games for us to all buy (on special, naturally) and then never install, play, or look at again. After all the saying does go: He who dies with the most unplayed Steam games wins. But some people must use the service for more than just playing DOTA 2 and Team Fortress 2 and those folks will be pleased with the changes coming to Steam Link. Ste...[Read More]

Nintendo details Switch Online service, includes cloud saves and NES games

We can’t say that we didn’t know it was coming, it was just a question of when. Nintendo has outlined what’s going to be arriving when their paid-for Switch Online service launches a little later on this year. If you ask us, the (expansive) features justify the (fairly minimal) cost. That’s because Nintendo aren’t just giving subscribers access to online play — ...[Read More]

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming on 26 October this year and it looks amazing

Rockstar Games have released very few games that haven’t sold stupendous amounts of copies. Most have been critically well-received to boot and we’re not expecting Red Dead Redemption 2 to be any different. Especially based on the new story trailer for the upcoming sequel, which has been far, far too long in coming. If you’re not already one of the more than 7.5 million viewers f...[Read More]
