Xbox One And A New Generation

Matt | May 22, 2013 5:32 am

It’s 4:30am and Microsoft’s reveal of their new system “Xbox One” finished not too long ago. While I sit here letting the tidal wave that is Twitter flood in front of my eyes I find myself still just as clueless about how the next generation is going to play out as I was when I went to bed last night.

Review – Sim City

Susie | April 19, 2013 1:58 pm

Susie

Arguably one of the best-known titles in gaming for many years, the new instalment proved its’ popularity with server hiccups upon release — the biggest ruckus on social media since Diablo III launched in 2012.  Launch problems aside, the popular city building title plays different to its predecessors and is an overall charming little package.  Sim City – the fifth instalment, is here.  At the time of publication, it seems to now be working fine too!

Review – Crysis 3

Back in 2007 the gaming world went mad. There was some new game which was pushing visual and technical boundaries that were leagues ahead of any other games on the market at the time. This game was Crysis, and for its day it looked and functioned phenomenally, thanks to the proprietary engine developed by Crytek known as CryEngine.

2013 Gaming News So Far

Matt | March 20, 2013 7:25 pm

Matt

We have been a bit inactive here at Drop Bear Gaming so far in 2013 due to a number of unforeseen things. Excessive work at our day jobs, illness, my laptop committing seppuku and the other distractions of life have meant we haven’t managed to get many posts up here. We are working to rectify this but to make up for not really covering anything this year I’ve decided to give a run down on what big news has been happening in the gaming world in no particular order.

SimCity Peace Offering Made By EA

Matt | March 19, 2013 5:49 pm

Matt

If you haven’t been following the news lately you might have missed the fact that SimCity launched two weeks ago. If you didn’t know that then you probably missed all the internet rage that followed the travesty that the launch ended up being. Lucky you. In a nutshell the always-online requirement of the game led to overloaded servers to the point where no-one was able to login or play the game at all. All of that has been fixed now and EA are offering an olive branch to consumers.

Need For Speed Most Wanted

Susie | November 13, 2012 5:45 pm

Susie

The next instalment of the Need For Speed franchise is finally here with Criterion’s signature touch in the car racing genre. For some gamers, especially Criterion veterans, there will be a strong familiar feeling when playing the game. Most Wanted – while yes, is about racing some lovely cars and evading law enforcement along the way – has included some nice changes and dynamics that should be a stepping stone for all future races.

Medal of Honor Warfighter

Susie | October 27, 2012 2:12 pm

Current generation gamers may associate military FPS games under the branding of the Call of Duty and Battlefield series exclusively.  When a new title comes along that branches out in the genre, it may almost be seen as the new kid in school; many are intrigued, curious and will use first impressions to decide if it will ‘fit in’ to their gaming collection.  As a gamer, it is important to remember that a title generally holds its own, and it is in no way clever to compare apples to oranges, or in this case – a pineapple.  Medal of Honor Warfighter (MoHW) has finally enrolled with plenty of sweet and sticky juice on the inside.

EBX 2012

Matt | October 9, 2012 10:13 am

Matt

The second annual EB Expo came and went over the weekend just past and it most definitely lived up to EB Games’ hype about being bigger and better than the inaugural show last year. With attendance counting in the thousands higher than last year and the duration increased to three days instead of just two it was definitely a lot busier, and the atmosphere from the punters had the venue buzzing with excitement throughout the entire event.
