Nowadays we live in a  world where everything is digital now, books can be read online, kindles are the new fashion accessory, movies can be streamed online and even the majority of the TV shows that people watch seemed to be streamed from their laptop on their TV. This actually prompted a bill to be passed here in Ireland to tax the people if they owned an electronic device that could have access to the internet and could stream tv shows, since it was costing the government because people didn’t need to buy a TV license to watch their shows on the TV. This didn’t last very long, there was outrage because this affected people that didn’t own a TV too.They had all the entertainment they needed either sitting on their lap or hiding away in their pocket.

This new realm of digital purchasing has been especially prevalent in the gaming world with almost all of the standard edition of games being bought on online marketplaces and through stores built into the consoles themselves. Although this is a handy and easy way to get gamers their games it doesn’t have the same feeling of waiting outside a games store for a midnight launch, call me old fashioned but I still love the excitement of that. (Yes I know..NEEEERRRRDDDD!!!)

Crysis creators Crytek have just announced their take on the Left4Dead style 4 player shoot-em up with HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age. Whilst this seems to be a generic thing in games nowadays I have high hopes for this addition to the genre. Giving Crytek’s already sterling reputation for high quality games there is a lot on the line for them with this announcement.

So Call of Duty: Ghosts is gonna be an estimated 40gb install when it released on the next gen consoles, whilst this seems to be the norm and doesnt deserve any adjective to really emphasis the size of the install then it’s quite the surprising to think that Fallout 2 had an option for a HUMONGOUS INSTALL!!!!

I will just put this out here and say it, I have never been a Batman fan, I have never read the comics, worn any t-shirts but I have seen every film and am torn between the Tim Burton and the Christopher Nolan portrayal. But now I finally have a version of Batman that I can actually enjoy and others seem to agree! (more…)

The AVGN Adventures PC game was released today and it only seemed right that I featured it on the Akro Analysis. This game is great, simple but hard, challenging but rewarding and stuffed with more references than games on the AVGN’s shelf! I’ve been waiting months for this game and i think it should give me something to do whilst i wait for the film to come out. (more…)

I go to a comic book shop on a regular basis, but what is just a humble nerdy vendor actually holds a lot more than you think. Down below the shop houses a mass of computers and video games, DVDs and projectors, nerd heaven basically. I became a member of this club sometime last year and one of the things that I was introduced to in this club was Warframe, or as the guys who run the place like to call it “Space Ninjas”. (more…)

I’ve always wanted a copy of Battlefield 3 for the Pc for ages now, it always looked well on PC than Xbox but I was taken away at the price of it, €30 may seem cheap but for a game that’s been out that long I’d think they’d drop the price a little bit.

But today my dreams, and dreams of hundreds of thousands of gamers across the world have been answered! The Humble Bundle have issued their new Origin Bundle, one of the best bundles I have ever seen.

It offers Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror’s Edge, and Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Dead Space, Dead Space 3, and Medal of Honour: Warfighter as standard. But if you pay over the average, currently at around $5, you will get Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 Starter Pack too.

So far the Humble Bundle has amassed over 1.2 million dollars in its first 2 hours and there is still 2 weeks to go, all proceeds are going to various charities in America. So what are you waiting for, go get some awesome games at an awesome price for an awesome cause!

AW!
