Here's how to build an All-Star eSports event

jonyami jonyami writes  |  about 2 months ago

jonyami (2976585) writes "When it comes to thousands of fans in person and millions of online spectators eyeballing your big eSports event, you need to make sure it's a spectacle. Last year's League of Legends All-Star event attracted 18 million unique viewers online, but just how exactly does an event like that come together? A new interview with Riot Games' head of eSports, Dustin Beck, explores exactly that to find out how you plan a huge international event."

We wish these next-gen demakes were real

jonyami jonyami writes  |  about 3 months ago

jonyami (2976585) writes "What if our next-gen favourites were turned into retro gaming masterpieces instead? A new article imagines an alternate reality where retro is king, and our top Xbox and PlayStation games are born into classic consoles instead, such as a Mario Kart Game & Watch, Dark Souls 2 on Game Boy and more. Anyone for a Titanfall Tiger handheld?"

jonyami jonyami writes  |  about 3 months ago

jonyami (2976585) writes "Indie games have existed for as long as there have been something to play, and something to play it on. From the humble Apple II computer to the PC, Xbox Live Arcade and the Kickstarter revolution, just what was the greatest age for indie games? A new article takes a look at the various eras, the top indie games and the future — which one do you reckon's on top?"

Here comes the gaming PC that attaches to the back of your TV

jonyami jonyami writes  |  about 8 months ago

jonyami (2976585) writes "The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are here, but they're facing some stiff competition in the living room — and it's not just from Nintendo. A new article takes an in-depth look at the upcoming Jetpack, a Steam OS-compatible PC that attaches to the back of your TV, hiding away in plain sight, yet delivers top notch performance thanks to high-end components. Next-gen might be here, but will you be playing Half-Life 3 on any of them?"

Meet the best games unreleased in the west

jonyami jonyami writes  |  about 8 months ago

jonyami (2976585) writes "Japan has been the envy of gamers for many years, mostly due to many hot titles and hardware being released there first, but did you know some of them didn't even make it out of the country? A new article takes a look at some of the best games that never left Japan and celebrates the titles that we never got to enjoy. From SNES classics like Terranigma and Seiken Densetsu 3 to bizarre Dreamcast console-war simulator Segagaga and even DS manga fighter Jump Ultimate Stars, these are the games we never got to play. Are there any more you'd like to see?"

The surprising second life of the PlayStation Vita

jonyami jonyami writes  |  about 8 months ago

jonyami (2976585) writes "It's been a slow start for Sony's latest handheld console, despite the console-like quality games that were shown off at launch, and its excellent screen and tactile controls you could take on the go, but you only have to look at the upcoming Christmas line-up to see where it's lagging behind. That said, a new article points out there's still life in the relatively-fresh handheld yet. With the arrival of the PlayStation 4 and a whole new wave of indie games and HD remakes heading to the handheld, it looks like Sony's plucky portable console is still going — but is that enough to save the Vita?"

jonyami (2976585) writes "Red Bull Gaming has an interesting and in-depth look at how next-gen consoles are reviving long forgotten games in all-new, unexpected ways: from the use of a new controller with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD to packaging up everything and anything in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix to even bringing back the original voice actors for DuckTales, and how they're keeping old ideas fresh."
