Journalist “Slut and Body Shames” Cosplayers at Comic Con Africa

Knowing that the majority of my readers are not South African, I thought I’d bring to your attention a controversial article that has been making the rounds in the South African geek community as of late.

My Experience With The Battlefield V BETA (PC)

So this past weekend gamers, young and old, got a chance to try out the Battlefield V BETA; a game that has already had its fair share of controversy for various reasons. I, for one, did not care about the controversy and was only focused on the gameplay aspect of it, since Battlefield 1 is one of my favourite FPS games of all time and I wondered how DICE would improve on it. So when the BETA was launched I finally had a chance to find this out for myself and the results are mostly positive.

Dealing With Depression Using Dark Souls

Disclaimer: The views and comments made in this post do not necessarily reflect how other people suffer from depression. Everyone is different and everyone experiences things differently to others. These are purely based on my personal experiences.

Before I start with this personal post of mine, I’m going to try my best not to turn this into a sob story. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been dealing with depression for a very long time. This, naturally, has had an effect on many areas of my life: feeling shy and socially anxious around people (especially women), putting too much pressure on myself due to societal and family expectations, saying negative things to myself when I do something wrong, even if it’s miniscule (“useless”, “idiot”, etc.) and so forth. Luckily, though, I have learned overtime to accept my depression and realise that it’s a part of who I am. By acknowledging this fact, it’s made the coping process a bit easier for me these days.  Continue reading “Dealing With Depression Using Dark Souls”

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 1 Review – A Hella Good Time (so far)

Ahhhh Life is Strange: you were sorely missed, my friend! I remember my first time entering Arcadia Bay like it was just the other day and now returning back to it (albeit a few years before the original game) made me feel a bit nostalgic. Though there are a few new characters – and a few familiar faces here and there – it still feels like the Arcadia Bay I remember, which is a good thing. That is the main strength of Before the Storm: it feels familiar, despite it being made by a new developer.

My Experience With The Resident Evil 7 Demo

Suitably Bored

Resident Evil has often been credited as one of the original pioneers of the Survival Horror genre, apart from Silent Hill. Those familiar with earlier Resident Evil games remember the dog jumping through the window giving them one of many memorable jump scares. The series, however, has gone through some rough patches over the years, especially with how Resident Evil turned out. Resident Evil 7, releasing in 2017, seems to be taking the series back to its Survival Horror roots while also trying to bring a fresh, new experience to the series. Video game demos are quite a rarity in this day and age so it was quite refreshing to find that Capcom released a demo of the game before it released. To give you the short answer to this post: this game is SCARY AS HELL!

Is Old School Cool Again?

Suitably Bored

When one mentions the term “old school” you would usually think of music back in the day. You know; the Bee Gees, Phil Collins, Dire Straits and the list goes on. I know some people, such as myself, have an appreciation for old school music and sometimes prefer listening to it rather than the music we hear these days. Lately, however, there seems to be a resurgence of “old school” inspired music. But old school goes further than just music; films and television series from the 80s and 90s are being remade as well as video games. Yes, I know hipster culture exists, but I’m looking more at the media resurgence of old school in this post.

Gamer’s Corner: Life is Strange

Have you ever had a moment where you were spoilt with choices, but couldn’t decide what you wanted? What if you had the power to rewind time and correct the mistakes of the past, only to find that it caused more harm than good and you were left second-guessing yourself afterwards? This is what Life is Strange is built upon: showing us that time is not something that can be taken lightly and that the choices we make can have serious consequences in the future.
