Anyone else catch Charlie Brookers Gameswipe on BBC Four tonight. Nice to see an intelligent yet funny look at gaming on the telebox. And who knew Dara O'Briain was a gamer!!

Cocky little 10 year olds who think their all big online even with a 0.5 K/D ratio
Long title I know but just saying it as it is. The other day I was on call of duty 5, when this kid with the highest voice I had ever heard turned is mic on, and was singing, like a bell end. I then tell him to shut up, but no, he continues, I get annoyed. “Mute him”, I say to myself, but no, it’s a new round, he’s on the opposite team and I want to hear… Continue

Since mom was still in pigtails games have aspired to be like movies. And the result? Cool characters, engaging stories, great acting, beautiful locations, evocative music, clever camera-work, moody lighting... yep, games now have them all, too!
You only gotta take a look at the last Metal Gear, any recent GTA game, or the upcoming Heavy Rain (Scott Shelby is the best private dick in any media in years) to see that the holy grail has been achieved. Even Rabbids Go Home has some great… Continue

What with quite a few new games just being remakes or belated sequels to 16 bit (if not older) games I was wondering what classic (or not so classic) games people would like to see be remade next? I for one am surprised that EA hasn't remade Road Rash.

Over protective parents
Why do some parents think its okay to stop their 10 year old son from playing super cool, bloody game? I don’t get it. “It may make him repeat the actions in the game”, “I don’t want him to be more violent”. That was some of the pathetic excuses these mothers may say. If you’re child plays a game and thinks I want to kill someone, then there child is a massive retard and the parent should have raised him better… Continue

A few of you have tuned in to Film 24 to watch Playr this weekend to find it not on at the same time as it was last week.
Ok, well here's the news.
From October Playr will have regular time slots each weekend.
Unfortunately, until then the start time is going to vary by up to an hour each week. Series link will also be down until then.
So, to avoid disappointment the best thing to do each week is consult the… Continue

Halo 3, one of the best games of all time...
and this is coming from a full-time Playstation 3 player (Part-time fanboy).
Many times I would go to my friend's house and hog his Xbox for the day
playing Halo 3 for hours on end. Whether it be forge mode or rocket race
you can bet I've searched and failed to find an experience that matches it on the
But on the 20th of October when my friend invited me over to play and complete the game in a day

I, personally, cannot stand people that do the worst possible names for their gamertag/Player ID. I’ll be sitting in my bedroom, playing call of duty 4, waiting for the leader board to load, and I decide to see the names and I see BenJames171193. I don’t mind too much at people’s names, but sometimes I think people like that try to make the noobiest name imaginable.
I believe that when choosing a gamertag/… Continue
