    Few of us adults have the luxury of being able to play video games. It is a hobby that most abandon when they transition to their job lives. I’m still one of the lucky few but it’s still not the same as before.

  • Sekiro: Player dies countless times

    Given that it is a FromSoftware game, I was aware people would struggle with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. What I didn't expect was that I, a disciple of Bloodborne, would struggle with it quite so much.

  • There's a bleak world out there

    The series which has garnered a cult following for its eerie atmosphere, heart-breaking stories, and brutal gameplay is back with its third entry. We dove right into post-apocalyptic Russia to find out if it's worth it.

  • Not just another Battle Royale

    Apex Legends is a new Battle Royale (BR) game from Respawn, the developers behind the Titanfall series. The game was kept under wraps right up to its release day. So how does it stack up against other BR titles?


    When I first booted up the demo, I expected to find a large server queue seeing as how Anthem was hyped beyond measure. What I didn't expect was being locked out of the game for more than a day due to technical issues.

  • Do not go gentle into that good night

    I'm sprinting, trying to navigate through the maze-like tunnels of this deep mineshaft. To my hypothermic, overburdened self, the flickering matchstick makes every wall and turn look identical.

  • Team Fortress

    Released back in 10th October 2007, this game is very much alive and still kicking strongly to this very day.

  • It's 2019

    If you have been walking around the wondrous streets of Dhaka this year only to bump into a careless deviant with a phone in his hand and his mind somewhere else, then I'm afraid that individual might have been me. Before you launch into a barrage of scathing criticism, I want you to hear my story.

  • 10 overlooked games of 2018

    Grist is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle platformer and it is arguably one of the prettiest games I have ever had the pleasure of laying my eyes on. Gris' art style is a pastiche of Studio Ghibli's best works while maintaining its own niche of sombre tones.

  • Rockstar Games: The Secret behind the Success

    The gaming community is a tough crowd. Publishers struggle most of the time to keep them satisfied. In fact, they often end up giving birth to outrage, controversies and “gates” in the process.

  • MercenarieZ clan presents the Bangladesh PUBG Showdown 2018

    PUBG, otherwise known as Player Unknown's Battlegrounds is a popular first-person shooter battle royale game that took the world by storm.

  • Starcraft without context

    I never understood the strategies involved in RTS games, and the few times I played, I realised spamming one type of soldier at the enemy just doesn't work. To redeem my uncultured ways, I decided to look at how the pros strategised.

  • Struggles of a Middle Class Gamer

    Everyone has dreams. Dreams of becoming something no one could think of, like a doctor or engineer. Unfortunately, more often than not, those dreams are never achieved, for some dirty papers which make the world go round.

  • Adventures of Appalachia

    Fans of one of the oldest RPG franchises were taken by surprise when Bethesda capped off their E3 presentation by announcing Fallout 76.

  • Shadow Of A Franchise

    There was not much hype about Shadow of the Tomb Raider - be it due to the sub-par marketing efforts by Square Enix or because of the release date being too close to Marvel's Spider-Man.

  • The Siege Team in India

    Bangladesh's gaming scene has primarily been focused on League of Legends, Counter-Strike and Dota for years now. The recent addition of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (R6S) to the scene in Bangladesh has completely changed that.

  • Games we would love to play on VR

    Video games are more than just for entertainment purpose. Often, one plays them not for the sake of being entertained, but for the nostalgia that they get while playing those games. So here is a crazy thought. Why not give our classic or beloved games a reboot?

  • Carve Your Odyssey

    Set in 431 BCE in Ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, Odyssey's island-hopping story sees you playing as the descendant of the legendary Spartan King Leonidas (This is Sparta!). Who you play as in Odyssey marks a first for the Assassin's Creed franchise, as you now have the choice of playing the game exclusively as a male or female character in the shape of siblings Alexios and Kassandra.

  • A step in the right direction

    Expecting anything other than incremental updates to this year's FIFA is more than far-fetched. However, FIFA 19 manages to gently nudge the series in the right direction.

  • Your Definitive Neighbourhood Spidey

    When Spider-Man 2: The Game came out on in 2004, it was a revelation. More often than not, video game developers hadn't been able to translate superhero stories to an interactive medium, but Spider-Man 2 was the exception.
