E3 – Every Rumour So Far!

from Gamespot.com *** E3 2018 is right around the corner, and that means a ton of video game news, announcements, and reveals are almost upon us. Several of the show’s biggest games–Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Rage 2–have been announced in the weeks leading up to the event, but that doesn’t mean E3 itself won’t have some surprises in store for us.

Retro Rocks Review: Metroid Prime

I will never forget the day I first loaded Metroid Prime into my Gamecube (ah, the Gamecube). It was one game I went out on a limb and bought, based purely on hype and the reviews I had read in gaming magazines (ah, gaming magazines).

Fortnite Can Fork Off!!!!

So… in what is arguably my most embarrassing gaming admission to date, last night, both me and my regular co-op gaming partner legend Ronald P. Corbett got a real-time in-game tutorial on Fortnite by Ronnie’s 11 year old twin boys. I’m not even joking. As you may have heard on the poddie last week, I admitted openly that we have been extremely slow on the uptake to the whole Battle Royale phenomenon that is Fortnite and PUBG. There’s a few reasons, but it mainly comes down to available time and trying to complete some games that should have been...
