I’ve been a Steam Link user for a good while, especially for displaying what’s happening in a HTC Vive headset on the living room TV. But I’ve also played more than a few TV-friendly games this way too. And now? Any game, on any device with Steam Link, on any network. Within reason…
“Hey, let’s make a new coin for Stephen Hawking that honours his life by portraying the beauty of a black hole that can be carried around in someone’s pocket.” Someone kinda said that and actually pulled it off. It’s gorgeous!
It can be so much easier to get kids excited about making and coding and playing with cool ideas when they can bounce off characters and ideas they know and love. So it’s great to see this collaboration giving kids a chance to embrace their love of Cartoon Network shows and turn that love into making things!
Good Old Games (GOG) has partnered with Blizzard to bring classic Diablo back to life. While we’ve had the recent anniversary events in January to give us the taste of classic Diablo inside Diablo 3, this is the real deal.
This week I’ve got two of the members of the Fnatic Rainbow Six team – team captain Etienne ‘Magnet’ Rousseau, and coach/manager Jayden ‘Dizzle’ Saunders.
I loved it. You should love it. It was Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers in the best way possible. Emily Blunt rocked as a battle-hardened bug destroyer and Tom Cruise was Tom Cruise but in that way that he’s OK a lot of times.

I sit down with two of the key brains behind Rainbow Six Siege and its smart and steady rise toward the top tier of global esports.

It has been a very nervous wait for Hearthstone esports fans, with a slow road to finding out how they were changing things up for the 2019 season and beyond. We finally got the news and it feels like quite the mixed bag.
Next time you’re visiting the Vatican to say hi to the Pope, or just check out the amazing art collections, take a second look at the helmets worn by the Swiss Guard. Turns out they might look like metal, but they’re starting to be 3D printed plastic.
Between a new price drop and the addition of a simplified set of starting choices for Newcomers, Rainbow Six Siege is making it easy for anyone who’s ever wanted to take it for a test drive.
Welcome to the Outback, ya bloody drongos. Or maybe that should be flamin’ galahs? Thankfully, Siege’s take on bringing Aussie operators and an Australian map to the game aren’t quite that cringeworthy. It rides that line soooo closely, but overall, it’s OTT grouse Aussie Straya yobo stuff – but it works.
I touch on the big, bad news out of Blizzard from last week to kick things off, then the show is a feature interview about the future of revisiting the past in WoW Classic with Countdown To Classic podcast host, Josh Corbett.
