Three Unusual Ways to Pay for Gambling

In this modern world, the days of putting actual physical coins into a machine feel long, long gone. We’re used to instant pay using credit cards and Paypal, next-day delivery and 24/7 customer support. And with all that, we always expect to be able to pay in ways that are easy and convenient. 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 ...

Halo Infinite Story Leaked – Here’s How to Avoid

Be warned: if you want to go in fresh with Halo Infinite this November, you’ll want to be very, very careful. Parts of the story have leaked and, as usual, trolls are trying to ruin it for the rest of us. Test flighting for the game’s multiplayer mode has been going on for the last few days. But developers accidentally included story points within the file. Of course, it didn’t take long for them to get out. Now people are…

Microsoft Flight Simulator Review

It’s incredible to think that a mere week ago I’d have been deadly in the pilot’s seat of a plane. Now, thanks to Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X, I’d be merely very dangerous. Yes, thanks to this masterclass in design, I’ve actually learnt a thing or two. I’m only half-joking. Okay, so very few people who play this game are going to end up capable of taking to the skies. But, man, it does a good job of…

Online Gambling Guide: How To Choose The Best Online Casino

How do you get to find the best casinos? The answer is easier than you might think. The internet is full of guides that’ll point you in the direction of as many casinos as you want. But the reality is that you must find the casino that works for you. Or even more than one casino. Because what works for one person might not work for another. The key is to know what you want, and to use the tools…

What’s Next for Super Smash Bros?

We’re nearly there – the final piece of DLC for Super Smash Bros Ultimate is on the horizon and then the biggest celebration of video games will come to an end. But what a legacy it will have. But it also marks a fork in the road for a franchise that has reached its peak. Do the developers continuing doing exactly the same thing, just with less characters? How does that go down after the success of Ultimate? Do they…

Steam Deck is More Than Just PC Gaming on the Move

Steam Deck could be an instant success – it’s every advantage of the Switch while surpassing it graphically, even offering up many of the best titles from the Series X and PlayStation 5. This thing could revolutionise the entire industry, and especially on the PC side. But only if people know it exists. Because that’s the rub. I was an avid fan of the Steam Controller, despite not being a massive PC gamer. I ranted and raved about how much…

Final Fantasy X-2 Still Doesn’t Work – And A Sequel Wouldn’t Help

Another game in the Final Fantasy X universe is in the early planning stages, and there’s even a chance it might actually see the light of day. As somebody still trying to get through the slog of Final Fantasy X-2, I’m not convinced this is a good thing. Final Fantasy X-2 is famously divisive. Some praise it for its excellent job system and attention to world development. Everybody else knocks it for… well, just about every other element. The ...

A Plague Tale: Innocence – Next-Gen Review

An historic Last of Us with rats instead of zombies. There ya go – everything you need to know about A Plague Tale: Innocence. Asobo have almost cracked the Naughty Dog code straight out of the gate with their first game in this style, and that’s incredible. ‘Almost’ is carrying a lot of weight in that sentence though. Intention doesn’t usually mean an awful lot in reviews – something is successful or it’s not – ...
