6 of the biggest gaming myths, busted – Red Bull International

“The feeling of discovering something in a video game that nobody else has found is one that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, but it’s something that’s going away slowly.

The Crew 2 review – VideoGamer

“Despite the tone, despite the irritants that will stop you giving hours to it at a time, The Crew 2 isn’t a bad game; I can’t stress that enough.

I’m just not sure where Captain Spirit himself fits into a full season, and it’s possible there may even end…

Mario Tennis Aces guide: How to beat Blooper and Boom-Boom – VideoGamer

“Nintendo and Camelot’s latest foray into the world of Tennis, Mario Tennis Aces, is pretty good, you’ll be pleased to hear.
