Hype. It’s a buzz word in the entertainment industry. Whether that be video games, movies, or your nephew’s local theatre production, generating hype for your product is an essential component of marketing now. 
Companies love franchises, as they can be easily adapted into multiple forms of media and make even more money for executives and investors. Just take a look at Star Wars: a multi-billion franchise that spans movies, video games, comic books, novels, TV shows, toys etc. But what TV show would make a great video game that hasn’t been done before?
2020 was plagued by many issues and disruptions to the gaming industry, despite it being it’s most successful yet. However, one of the biggest sectors impacted was the PC hardware industry which saw an incredible amount of demand for such low stock. Now, after even more issues with scalpers, increased manufacturing costs and many more means 2021 will be the most expensive year for PC gaming hardware enthusiasts.
The holiday season is nearly over, even though it is a new year already to some the festive period still lingers. Either way it can only mean one thing: we’ve all opened our holiday presents by now. So what we want to know is what gaming goodies did you get for the 2020 Holidays?
Video games are great and we all love them, there’s no doubt about that. They offer us a new experience, often giving us access into a brand new world that we can explore and learn about, or take us on adventures where the story sticks with us for a long time, or even just providing us with a limitless supply of fun and engaging gameplay.
2020 was a lot of things to a lot of people, and whilst it was generally pretty awful for almost everyone in the world, there were also some good things that came out this year in the games industry. We got some really incredible titles out last year, and so we want to know what were your top 3 games of the year 2020?
2020 has been a rollercoaster of a ride for many reasons, and it certainly hasn’t spared the gaming industry. However, there have been some great games this year still, and luckily for us our good friend Metacritic has the list of the best games of 2020 based on aggregate scores from multiple review sites.
2020 has been a rough year for PC gamers who have been trying to get their hands on the latest hardware. Still, it hasn’t quite stopped us from trying. So in honor of the year just gone by and various Christmas deals, we wanted to know what gaming hardware you bought in 2020.
As a new year approaches, we like to look back at the year in gaming and see what tickled our fancy, and in the case of today’s question: what didn’t. Disappointments unfortunately are a part of life, as they come hand in hand with expectations and excitement. Sometimes something promises one thing and ends up delivering another. It doesn’t mean it was bad, per se... it just means it wasn’t quite what we were expecting.
As PC gamers we all tend to have different rigs and different setups. Some of us have a modest, 1080p, single monitor setup, whilst others can have a 4K triple-monitor immersive beast. It’s what attracts so many people to the platform. And in the midst of classic questions like gamepad or keyboard, we thought we’d switch things up a bit: do you use headphones or speakers when gaming?
Video games are one of the most popular forms of entertainment today, and the average human being spends a lot of time playing them every week. Certain games beg you to sink loads of your time into and to some people breaking certain playtime milestones is quite the achievement.
