In a press release today Activision announced that they are aquiring the mobile phone app maker King, most famous for Candy Crush Saga and Candy Crush Soda Saga, for a whopping $5.9 billion.

Yes, you read that right, they bough them for almost 6 BILLION dollars. And I'm betting you thought you spent too much money on free to play games.

Just to put things in to perspective, when Disney bought Star Wars they "only" paid $4 billion, so this acquisition shows that Activision has high hopes for the mobile gaming market. And its easy to see why, according to the same press release King had an adjusted profit of $2.1 billion during the last twelve months.

It would appear my optimism in the previous article was unwarranted as the re-release of Arkham Knight is gathering many of the same complaints that got it pulled from Steam in the first place.

The one ray of sunshine in all of this is the fact that WB are offering a full refund for both the game and the season pass no matter how many hours you put in to it. This offer will be valid until the end of 2015.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has been my go to "chill out" game for a while now so the moment I realized Afterbirth released on steam I snapped it up, dropped everything I was doing and started playing.

I will do a proper review after I've put in some more hours but even now I feel like I can confidently say that this is a great piece of DLC, it expands on pretty much every aspect of the main game while still adding enough new things to keep it all fresh. You can get it right now on Steam for $10,99/€10,99/£7,99 though keep in mind you will need the base game (The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth) in order to be able to play Afterbirth.

Hi-Rez has announced today, on the 20th anniversary of the first Tribes game, that they are giving out all of the Tribes Universe games for free, including the PlayStation 2 only Aerial Assault.

You may know the Tribes series as the futuristic FPS with insanely fast movement, jetpacks, plenty of explosions and gameplay so deep that its damn near impossible to master but what you might not know is that Tribes actually began as a mech game. The very first game was called Metaltech: Earthsiege and it was awesome!

Back in my youth I would consider news like this terrible, if a game is being delayed for a few months that means I won't get to play it soon, and that was just too much for my young self! Nowadays, I've come to appreciate companies willing to delay their game in order to bring out the best version of it they can rather than simply rushing out a barely working mess in order to cash in on whatever shopping season is currently ongoing.

And after so many botched AAA PC releases in the past few months its even more commendable to see a giant like EA delay their game despite announcing a while back that their targeted release date is in the first quarter of 2016.

The world championship for the four main Blizzard games (besides Diablo) is set to start on October 28. The event, starring Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2 will run to the 7th of November at which point there will be a grand finale held at Blizzcon.

While the Blizzcon tickets (even the virtual ones) sport quite a high price the tournaments themselves are thankfully free and will be both streamed and archived on Twitch and Youtube. And speaking of money, its interesting to note that WoW, Hearthstone and Starcraft 2 all have a prize pool of $250,000 while Heroes of the Storm doubles that with its $500,000 prize pool. This bodes well for the future of HotS if Blizzard considers it worthy of being the "main star" of the championship.

Ok, calling it Unreal Tournament inspired might be a bit of a stretch but what else can I think about when Psyonix announced that they are adding mutators such as low gravity, time warp, cubic balls and many others to Rocket League.

If you have somehow managed to avoid going online the last few months you might not know what Rocket League is so allow me to explain. Rocket League is a game of football (or soccer if you are so inclined) where all those boring fleshy bits have been replaced with acrobatic bumper cars. You'll spend most of the match speeding about, doing jump flips, smashing in to the ball, the enemies or in my case simply the wall. And yes, it is as fun as it sounds.
