    • Horrible words we should ban from videogame titles

      Lords of the Fallen and Call of Duty: Advance Warfare just came out and they should be laughed out the damn building for their horrible, generic videogames names. I originally typed "Armored Warfare" and was confused when Google failed to bring up results for our "Call of Duty: Armored Warfare" review.

  • We Don’t Talk About FightBox

    … Back in 2003 the BBC broadcast FightBox, a video game fighting show designed to be a replacement for Robot Wars. Contestants design their fighters and submit them to the BBC.

    … the most of it. Some people seem to think that Google rushed out the Motorola designed Nexus 6 and the recent discovery of a hidden RGB LED underneath the speaker grille seems to be proof of that. If you were hoping that you’ll soon be able to make the most of both the Ambient Display and the secret LED, think again – sadly it’s been hidden from view…

  • Three flying under the radar

    …. It’s allegedly due out on PS4, Xbox One and PC in January for around the £29.99 mark. Expect that date to slip – it took System 3 several attempts to get Putty Squad out of the door, eventually canning the Xbox 360 retail version in favour of a XBLA release.
