Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto: Online
Pretty much a year ago and a bit I was loading up Grand Theft Auto V onto my PS3 because that’s what you do when the latest and greatest game series is released… on the PS3 and Xbox 360 only. So basically I was downgrading controllability from my previous super-fun experience on PC with GTAIV and going to the archaic PS3 with it’s 10 year old hardware and… well it has a Blu-Ray player so that’s pretty good.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Its been 2 years since I glided around Gotham as batman going from rooftop to rooftop silently taking down all my foes but now I return and this time I get the Batmobile.
Coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on the 2 June
Happy New Year everyone! We at Kokstars are ringing in 2015 by sharing the games we are looking forward to with you.
Resident Evil: Revelations II
I never used to play horror games but I enjoy Resident Evil because we can play it co-op. Chronologically this game takes place between Resident Evil 5 and 6. I still won’t watch zombie movies (unless it’s like Zombieland) but now I like playing zombie games because at least you can kill them.
Coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015
It’s Fridaaaaaaay! And what better way to celebrate than get all personal with the apps you love. I admit I don’t really pay much attention to the productivity stuff and mainly focus on a very select bunch of games and productivity killing apps to stave off boredom when you’ve nothing to do and a whole lot of time away from your Playstation/PC/desk/home etc. there are some interesting ones though so bear with me:
(If you are an iPhone user, some may still apply though I am an Android user so I don’t have limitations)
1. Album Art Grabber
I listen to a lot of music and having no album art is not fun, Album Art Grabber can go through your library and grab all the missing art or if you feel like it you can put your own images in. Continue reading
Hello, my name is Shaun and I am a closet comic book fan. Why is that, maybe because I took an immediate shining to imagery, chasing stuff by Jim Lee, Michael Turner, John Romita Jr, Frank Miller, Greg Horn, Joe Quesada or Bryan Hitch to name a few. A lot of that was mainly due to aesthetics, the comic was usually a good read because top talent more often than not is paired with great writers like Mark Millar or Jeph Loeb but I reveled in the beauty of the frames and intricate detail the penciller puts into each scene, they were never lazy or ambiguous, always fully realising shots of a moment in time.
I am a fan of immersion in gaming and movies and whatever else is an experience you can have without actually being in danger or within grasp of the elements etc. I wrote an article some while back about ASMR and how binaural ASMR recorded with 3D stereoscopic mics make for a surreal yet relaxing experience. Now to visuals, the battle for your loungeroom wall is an epic one and with the latest from the big brands vying to blow you away with their 4K resolutions on massive screens. Even though I am a fan of many inches… of screen real estate you still can’t sit that close to the screen and when you sit where you usually sit the whole affair is not much larger in perspective than my Macbook is sitting on my lap. This whole screen size thing is going to get silly, soon enough they’ll paint your wall with some liquid screen stuff hooked into a media controller and you will watch the wall. That or you will be able to purchase rolled up LED/LCD wallpaper that when applied to any surface or framed will be the screen. Basically really big TVs with virtually limitless possibilities with screen size and application.
In recent years we have seen the rise of the standard military shooter they’re not all bad but they have a very similar feel some evil group is hell bent on destroying the world as we know it, by setting off all the nukes in the world or sending the US and China to war with each other. but these games have a redeeming multiplayer filled with unlocks that will set you back 200+ hours, but Wolfenstein is a different breed.

Virtual Reality has been the stuff of Hollywood dreams since the 70’s way before any sort of good method to track head movement or believable CGI was available yet the idea was there that we could experience a world reserved for fantasy. If you have been anywhere near the gaming industry recently you would have heard of Oculus and their intelligent yet reasonably priced VR headset called the Rift. Continue reading
