This guide (accompanied by two videos) will walk you through the fight with middleweight contender Ricardo Alvarez and your first step towards redemption.
Alvarez, despite being given plenty of credibility and a lofty ranking in the game, is a fairly average fighter. He certainly won't cause the same problems as Keyshawn Hayes did, your previous opponent. Yet the main problem with this fight is not to do with the fighter opposite you, [...More
Fight Night Champion - Champion Mode (Keyshawn Hayes) [ Guide ]
The Champion Mode in Fight Night Champion introduces something new to the Fight Night series, as you follow protagonist Andre Bishop in his search for glory and redemption. This guide (accompanied by a video) will walk you through the tricky six rounder against the big punching Keyshawn Hayes.
Before the fight even begins you are warned on a couple of occasions the power Hayes possesses in his left hook. It's inevitable that you will be dropped by it at one point, but you still have to have some tricks up your sleeve to avoid further knockdown's and a loss as a [...More
Fight Night Champion - Champion Mode (rising up the rankings) [ Guide ]
The Champion Mode in Fight Night Champion introduces something new to the Fight Night series, as you follow protagonist Andre Bishop in his search for glory and redemption. This guide (accompanied by two videos) will walk you through the second and third professional fights of Bishop's career.
The opposition in both fights is fairly simplistic, with both being your standard fighter and not offering any unique characteristic traits. Neither should offer you any problems in progressing through the story. Just stick to your boxing and look for the counter opportunities to end the night early.
Fight Night Champion - Champion Mode (first pro steps) [ Guide ]

This guide (accompanied by two videos) will walk you through the beginning of Bishop's foray into the professional middleweight ranks.
Your first sparring session is fairly simple despite the objective suggesting otherwise. That objective is to knock down your sparring partner in the first round. Difficult in principle, simple to execute.
Now although you only have a round, it's best to take your time and pick your shots. Your opposition throws plenty of [...More
Fight Night Champion - Champion Mode (amateur glory) [ Guide ]
The Champion Mode in Fight Night Champion introduces something new to the Fight Night series, as you follow protagonist Andre Bishop in his search for glory and redemption. This guide (accompanied by a video) will walk you through the second part of the story, as you reminisce about your world amateur final fight against Cuban great Joel Savon.
Despite the daunting task that seems to be proposed to you at the start of this fight, it really isn't that difficult to defeat Savon despite his lofty credentials. One thing to note; with the fight having amateur scoring, it means that you [...More
Ridge Racer Unbounded [ Review ]
Ridge Racer is a name that is easily recognized by fans of racing games since the 90's. Namco had done well with the series, but it hasn't lived up to its legend lately due to a new breed of racers that had come in. The last console Ridge Racer title dates back to 2006, so it's definitely time for a new one.
After an up-and-down journey in recent years, Ridge Racer Unbounded has been released by Bugbear Entertainment. This revival of the classic series does look good on its own, staying true to its arcade roots while updating the look and [...More
Lunar Racer (iOS) [ Review ]
As expected, the first releases for the year 2012 have come in droves. One of them is this racing game called Lunar Racer, which actually has quite a bit of potential. For less than a dollar, you get a low gravity racer with lots of speed and interesting mechanics to keep you entertained and engaged.
As far as casual games go, this fits the bill as it is very easy to pick up and play. But in its simplicity belies some sophistication that makes it a game of skill. If you time those nitro boosts just right each time, you can [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Cho'Gath [ Guide ]
There is no champion in the League of Legends roster quite like Cho'Gath. Here is a monster who is easy to learn and play, but still packs a brutal punch in the hands of a veteran. He is an off-tank with a lot of positive qualities in the game, including some of the most badass skins and voiceovers you'll find. He is always a good choice in any team.
Picking Cho'Gath is almost a no-brainer as he's good for almost any team composition. Cho'Gath combines damage, crowd control, and a beefy amount of health into one deadly package. [...More
Ridge Racer Unbounded [ Preview ]
As a car racing series, Ridge Racer is clinging onto a reputation that established it as the prime car racing video game series in the world. Its steady climb to popularity in the early years is anchored on the tradition of no non-sense car racing: no more, no less. However, everything changed when a new breed of video game series invaded its turf. The competition that arrived did not use car racing as the means of capturing the attention of gamers. It was the new twists in gaming that attracted the attention of gamers away from Ridge Racer to the [...More
3D Classics: Urban Champion [ Review ]
I can understand why Nintendo came up with the crazy idea of reviving Urban Champion, this time on the 3DS. This is not to say that the developers are as crazy as their idea, but there is more to the move than just for the sake of reviving it. Nintendo would like to prove that they did not create a flop back in 1985 when the game was first released. However, nothing has changed even after 26 years. The design is still limited and very basic. Suffice it to say that it is boring. The only impressive part of this [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Ezrael [ Guide ]
In a lot of games, there is that one character that just fits the cool category quite well. In Star Wars, there was Han Solo; in League of Legends, there is Ezrael. Now, before Star Wars fans start denouncing this as blasphemy, take note that there are plenty of things to be happy about this comparison as Ezrael has a lot of good points that contribute to his effectiveness in this game. Despite reservations, there is no denying that it takes considerable grit in the game to play this champion to the fullest.
Ezrael is capable of solid offense and defense [...More

Paper Racer was released 21st of June [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Gangplank [ Guide ]
Gangplank is a champion that dishes out tons of damage quite quickly against enemy champions who are stupid enough to stay within his range. His ultimate skill, Cannon Barrage, is an absolute game changer. When the enemy team sees it about to come down on them during a team fight, it's either they abandon everything else and run for it or just accept their fate and try to kill at least your or one of your teammates before they get hit with those cannonballs.
This champion has a good number of strong points. Parrrley is a very good primary skill as [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Pantheon [ Guide ]
As a champion, Pantheon has the image of a powerful warrior who tears through enemies like paper dolls. When you look at his stats in the game, you can see the exceptionally high attack damage rating while noticing the little notch on the health rating. He bears strong offensive capabilities that must be handled with care due to his weaknesses, but such that they are manageable.
In any 1v1 fight, Pantheon can come on top with his powerful attack damage and effective abilities that give them little time to react. He is also capable in greatly influencing the result of any [...More
Ridge Racer Unbounded [ Screenshots ]
Ridge Racer Unbounded is a game developed by Bugbear Entertainment and published by Namco Bandai. This is for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This game is very different from the old Ridge Racer that everybody knows.
This game features a new mantra... they have come to a new drive... time to destroy and dominate.
There is a new breed of racing machines this time, those old racing machines are out! Come and play with the city of "Shatter Bay" as your playground. Carnage and destruction is the focus this time and we're GOOD at [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Vladimir [ Guide ]
Vladimir is unique in that his abilities are all based on blood. These help him be both deadly and elusive in the battlefield, which gets other players steaming with anger due to how inconsistent he can be. While some call him overpowered, others who've used him call him weak and useless. The former is due to him being used properly, while the latter is a baseless allegation made by those who haven't got a single clue on how to handle him right.
This shakiness is what makes him balanced in a sense. He is an experiment that requires perfection. [...More
Uber Racer 3D - Sandstorm [ Screenshots ]
Uber Racer 3D – Sandstorm is one of the most enjoyable racing games in the App Store! This is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
This features 10 unique environments, detailed graphics and 31 race days on career mode. There are up to 10 events that players can compete in.
Players will also enjoy the realistic motor and 3D sound.
The following are [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Katarina [ Guide ]
Katarina is one of the most lethal gankers in the League of Legends and is feared by many. While her prominence has waned a bit due to better understanding of team dynamics and the experimentation of other champion combinations, she is still a force to be reckoned with in any fight.
The sudden withdrawal of interest in her is due to her lack of versatility, seeming like someone who can only shine in one-on-one. Against beginners, she would seem like an absolute monster. But against a decent team, she can fall into mediocre status if the user only expected to gank [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Shen [ Guide ]
Shen is a ninja, but not the usual most people expect that tumbles through the air and dodges every hit. This ninja epitomizes the true meaning of that Japanese word -- the enduring one. Shen takes hits, shrugs it off, then hits back with twice the force. As a tank, Shen has become a staple due to his versatility and his ranged taunt that is so useful in team clashes. Needless to say, this is a champion that any LoL player needs to learn.
Shen, despite what we may think with our stereotypical views on ninjas, is one of the best [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Kassadin [ Guide ]
Kassadin is a strong, yet underrated champion with surprising versatility. He may be a bit weak at first, but he then grows strong enough during the mid game to start killing enemies consistently. The aim is to be able to kill a squishy enemy in around two seconds, which is a mostly offensive style of build for champion who looks a bit like a mage. Don't be fooled though as Kassadin is actually a melee juggernaut.
Tower diving is another specialty of this champion, so he should lead in lane pushes. As for clashes, the best way to use Kassadin is [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Karthus [ Guide ]
Karthus is a mage who is good for lane control and pushing into enemy territory. His ultimate skill can be used to even those who do manage to escape your reach, making it very useful in offense. He also wreaks havoc for a full ten seconds after his death, killing those who are stupid enough stick around. In a sense, Karthus follows death and death follows Karthus.
He is good for both ganking and harassing as his skills allow you to deliver substantial damage at a distance. His skill Wall of Pain is great for both crowd control and psychological reasons [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Tryndamere [ Guide ]
Tryndamere is one of the most powerful champions during the late game due to his ability to deliver as much damage in as little time as possible, making him a powerhouse in team ganking runs. As a DPS carry, he can deliver massive amounts of critical damage very quickly. He is easy to learn and play but quite hard to master. He's solid in the early game as he has self healing and good escape capabilities and an AoE slow skill that doesn't need Mana, making him good for laning.
The early parts of the game may be difficult since you [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Annie [ Guide ]
Annie is one of the champions that beginners can play in LoL. For those who are into nukers and glass cannon mages with great offensive capabilities, this champion is a great fit. She has the ability to stun and burn opponents down, and her ultimate skill is an absolute beast. She is similar to the typical fire-flinging caster archetype found in RPGs, but only smaller. She may not be someone who should be tanking, but she does very well in delivering damage and helping the team push towards the enemy base. With the right items, you can give Annie some [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Malphite [ Guide ]
Malphite is not really a tank since he doesn't have the all necessary skills to be a full one. All he has is high HP and some armor, but that's it. His skills are more for dealing damage and not for taunting or stunning enemies, although Seismic Shard does have a 4-second slow. His passive shield is mostly situational, so it doesn't really count for much.
He is mostly for offensive purposes. He's something in between an off-tank and a carry as he does have decent attack damage and good offensive skills, but he doesn't seem to specialize in one thing. [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Mordekaiser [ Guide ]
As a metalhead, it has been fun writing this guide since Mordekaiser truly is the Master of Metal in LoL. While not exactly overpowered, Mordekaiser is quite a powerhouse when equipped with the right items and played the right way.
The problem to be considered is Mordekaiser's true role in a team. He can't be classified as a full tank since he has no CCs, while Rammus, Shen, and Galio have taunt and Amumu has a massive snare. He is definitely not a mage or a support since he doesn't have the appropriate skills. He's not a carry since his attack [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Rammus [ Guide ]
Rammus is one of the most robust champions in LoL, and is great at engaging enemy champions and softening them up with AoE spells. He's no carry and his taunt skill isn't a unanimous favorite, but his strengths definitely outweigh the weaknesses. This particular champion is a great tank with some useful offensive capabilities that can help the entire team during clashes. He's somewhat the assist king in LoL like how a point guard is to basketball. When you're a tank, you want to still pose enough of a threat to make enemy champion want to kill you instead of [...More
League of Legends - Champion Guide: Veigar [ Guide ]
Veigar has always been formidable, even when people play him wrong by making him a full carry. You must still take advantage of his skills and use items that bolster his ability power to crush the enemy and see them driven before you. If you don't want to be one of those fools who equip Veigar with a Soulstealer in the hopes of getting fed, only to fail keeping stacks due to being really squishy, then this guide should help you stop being an idiot and be a strong part of the team once again.
This champion is basically a nuker [...More
