Time for brands to put their money where their mouth is

On Tuesday 2nd June, Blackout Tuesday hit social media by storm and video game companies were some of those involved in the movement. Studios, Publisher and other companies such as ActivisionBlizzard, Ubisoft and EGX. were some of those who spoke out. While other companies such as YouTube and Ubisoft stated, they were going to donate to the causes. Others such as PlayStation and Activation postponed presentation and launches to “allow more important voices to be heard” (PlayStation). Despite these many were criticized for just being words. Many went against what they have done and said in the past. Blizzard, for example, suspended Ng’ Blitzchung’ Wai Chang after he showed support for the protest in Hong Kong last year and banned three players following for the same […]

Ultimate Control in Management Sims

With the lock down in place I’ve had a bit more chance to play some games and have a think of how they effect me in certain situations. These aren’t the type of articles I normally post but having some time to reflect I thought it was time I gave this a crack. Management Sims are my go-to choice of […]

Escaping into a virtual world

Doing some research before this post, I found that escapism is a subject that really splits people. I am not commenting if that it is good/bad, I am simply exploring the games that allow me to escape within them. I find, as a creative writer and student, that escaping for a brief moment allows me to gain clarity on situations […]

I sense the curse before I even discover it was real, the woods suppress the secrets the wind wants to tell. I could feel the wind begging me not to take a step further, urging me to stop because I […]
