Gambling Becoming More Popular in Canada

It was a rough start, but gambling is now hugely popular in Canada. 65 per cent of Canadians old enough to gamble will place an online bet in the coming year – a percentage that explains the $15m in sports betting. It’s true that until relatively recently, gambling within Canada was no easy feat. Premises had to be run by or licensed by the provincial government. Naturally, you could play online on sites meant for other country. But that just…

Psychonauts 2 Review

The wait has been enough to drive a person crazy, but Psychonauts 2 is finally available to play. The beloved indie darling has lost none of its charm being developed by a now fully-fledged Microsoft studio. Instead, it’s a must-play platformer that justifies itself over and over again. Because realistically, a sequel to Psychonauts could have been a disaster. Reviving any classic is tough, especially when there was only ever one entry. But Double Fine ...

Steam’s Refund Policy Needs Another Look

In a world of difficult customer support processes, jargon-filled FAQs and oblique policies, Steam feels like a breath of fresh air. If you’ve played a game for less than two hours within 14 days of purchase, you get your refund. You literally can’t say fairer than that – unless you’re an indie developer. Because the system is absolutely ripe for abuse if your game is less than two hours long, and customers are frequently taking ...

Sony’s Horizon Delay Doesn’t Matter this Christmas

2021 isn’t going to be a good holiday season for Sony now that Horizon 2 has been delayed. With blockbusters looking few and far between, a lot of the talk about “the power of exclusives” has aged like milk. This year the viability of the PlayStation 5 will hinge on third-party exclusives and older games, such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales. If you want to play Battlefield or Call of Duty, you can do it here. Albeit, probably at a slightly…

In this modern world, the days of putting actual physical coins into a machine feel long, long gone.

That’s true in gambling, too. The good news is that casinos are quick to keep up with changing trends, and there are no endless ways of paying…

Choosing A Local Casino That’s Right For You

It doesn’t take much to find a casino on the internet. There’s hundreds of them. But the biggest players have so much control over Google via advertising that it can make finding a casino that’s local to you quite difficult. Finding one that meets all your needs AND is local can be even harder. So what can you do? You can either cave in and just use one of the big international players or you can be a little more…

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory Review

Kingdom Hearts is a mess of mixed genres, overlapping storylines and convoluted writing, and yet we still love it. Its cheesy optimism and tight gameplay – not to mention the much-loved cameos – makes it a must-play for anybody with a heart (sorry, Nobodies). Melody of Memory takes all of that and basically just dumps it in the bin, replacing the best of the franchise with a self-indulgent Theatrhythm clone. And that’s not to say it’s ...

But developers accidentally included story points within the file. Of course, it didn’t take long for them to get out. Now people are…
