GTA V: Has its reign ended?

Long live GTA V? Every gamer knows Grand Theft Auto V (also known as GTA V); an anticipated open world game back in 2012 that hit high sales in 2013 when it was released. As expected of GTA Series, the game did not disappoint as the world was more interactive than previous series and unique characters were introduced. However, over the years, its play-ability was taking a downward path; Was it due to its game-play or the fact that there was not much realism in that big world of Los Santos? Either could be the answer depending on one’s motive in playing the game. GTA V has come a long way and its game-play is taking a realistic spin thanks to its dedicated fans known as modders. These individuals have taken the initiative of making the game more fun and gravitating, as realistic aspects ar...

Star Wars Battlefront set for holiday 2015

The reboot of the Star Wars Battlefront Franchise as a first-person shooter was expected in late 2014. It was pushed to mid 2015 but has now been permanently (hopefully) set for a "Holiday 2015" release window by EA which means it can arrive anywhere between October and December 2015. A holiday 2015 release will allow the game to feed off the excitement of the release of Star Wars Episode VII which is set to come to theaters worldwide on December 18, 2015. A double whammy of video game and movie flavoured Star Wars? Its safe to say I am exited. Star Wars Battlefront will be released for Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and PC.
