We all have a game we vividly remember playing as a little kid whether it be a game hardly anyone knows about or considered a turning point for the future release of games. Released in 1993 when I was turning just 2 years old a special game released that pretty much defined the first person shooter. But this was the first of its kind. When you think about the amount of FPS are out there today, there’s still one over 20 years old that people still play today. Of course, I’m talking about Doom! An absolute icon in the video game industry.
During the #AcerLiveBlog2016 Hugo was able to get some hands on time with the Predator 8, Acer’s dedicated gaming tablet.
Cast your mind back to the late nineties, to a world awash with Furbies, where Hit Me Baby One More Time was every teenager’s polyphonic ringtone and the question of the day was ‘do you take the blue pill or the red pill?’ The world was enthralled by Nintendo’s Mario Kart 64 but with three years passed since it’s release, there was a gap in the market. Luckily, game developers at Naughty Dog saw an opportunity for Crash Team Racing; a wacky, fast paced kart racing game, featuring some of Crash Bandicoot’s original and beloved characters.
You know that thrill of a fast paced game? The kind that gets you leaning forward from your chair, with your eyes fixed to the screen and everything around suddenly isn’t there anymore. I haven’t felt so concentrated as I have in Burnout 3 Takedown because that one little scrape could become a catastrophe for you! You’re in for a treat if you have never played any of the Burnout games before. But even if you have, the 3rd instalment is considered one of the best in the series when compared to later installments like Paradise and other racing games alike, and they’re not wrong. Takedown, in my opinion is one of the most important racing games that made later racing games compete even on the PlayStation 3. Released on PS2 and Xbox, the graphics are seriously not far off from early PS3/Xbox 360 standards.
What could possibly be better than a round of tasty Tapas? That’s right, another round of Tapas! HenchTech’s Indie Tapas, to be precise!

Pokémon Yellow – Special Pikachu Edition, developed by Gamefreak, was released in Europe midway through 2000, is more or less the same game that appeared on the GameBoy a year before, albeit with minor changes over the Red and Blue versions that neither drastically improve nor degrade the game, except for adding a bit more spark perhaps.
