The big guns

This was a big week for new releases, with both The Division and Hitman arriving on the PlayStation 4.

Growing pains

And thus marks the end to a clumsy week, where your humble host has messed up his elbow and pulled a muscle in his neck.

Why Do We Treat Gaming Like a Chore?

Work, work, work

I've got to finish it otherwise I'll never clear my backlog. Recognise that? In this instance, 'it' doesn't refer to an important project or a piece of school work – but a game instead.
