Overwatch: Sombra and Promoooooted!

Posted on Wednesday, November 16th, 2016 at 1:42 am

On the night that Sombra was finally unleashed on the Overwatch world I finally managed rank up to Platinum! After weeks of going up and down in score (doing as badly as the low-2100s) I finally managed to have a little luck. This was largely thanks to my 3-man group and the great teams we were matched up with this evening. Another factor in my opinion was Sombra herself! Continue Reading

Pokémon Go Time!

I’ve given in to the hype and acquired the APK for Pokémon Go early to have a little play around. I’m a semi-retired Ingress player so I was curious to see how the game would turn out. So far despite not going anywhere, my impressions of the game seem to be pretty good.

All aboard the E3 hype train!

Posted on Sunday, June 12th, 2016 at 9:30 pm

It’s June, so that means it’s E3 time where we get to learn about new hardware (maybe) and games that are in the works by studios around the world. The show itself doesn’t kick off until Tuesday, but the usual suspects (Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, EA, Bethesda et al) will be holding their conferences from now until then.

Here I will talk about what I hope will show up this year.
