Aces High - An Interview with London Spitfire Head Coach Beoum-Jun "Bishop" Lee

(Taken from Bishop's Twitter)

After a year of hard graft and preparation, the Overwatch League is set to go for its inaugural season. Twelve teams are locked in to represent countries from across the world with the pre-season matches taken place last weekend. The Overwatch League is set to start January 10th with much anticipation surrounding it. I’ll be doing a series looking into the team who will be representing the United Kingdom and Europe, London Spitfire.

FIFA 18 - Galaticos & El Tornados

You've played a long, hard and mentally gruelling match. The score is currently 2-2 in the 88th minute, your defending hard after a sustained amount of pressure from your opponent when the opportunity to counter arises. You get the ball and run down the flank with Roberto Carlos and see that Cristiano Ronaldo has made a run but has a defender has hung with him. You decide a through ball over the top is the best course of action so you hit and hope. Ronaldo is 25 yards out when he turns, controls the ball first time and knocks the ball up into the air. Then in one swift, fluid motion he turns 180 degrees on a sixpence and smashes the ball into the top right hand corner for the win. This is FIFA 18 and it produces moments like this as if you were watching a real game regularly.

Call of Duty WWII Beta

After a few years of going further and further into the future with their warfare games, Activison and Sledgehammer games have decided to go back into the past and into a period of time that most Call of Duty fans have been begging for for the last few years. World War 2. The private beta for CoD: WW2 finally dropped on Xbox One this weekend, so I've been able to have a little pay around!

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

For those of you who've never played The Witcher games (what have you done with you're lives), Gwent is a free to play, turn based collectable card game that was originally the main mini game that could be played in The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt. Now that it's been given it's own platform and I've been playing the open beta, I'll give you my views so far.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

The Mass Effect series of video games turned has turned into one of the biggest and best video game franchises in recent history. The story of Commander John (or Hannah) Sheppard and the crew of the Normandy, fighting against the incoming Reaper invasion over the first three games got fans by the heart strings. Mass Effect: Andromeda looks to do the exact same thing but this time with a new ship, new crew, new star system and new story.

Proud To Admit That I Play Computer Games

I've been playing video games since I was around the age of 10, I turned to gaming after I had one too many knee injuries playing sport and needed another hobby or outlet as I never fitted in the area I grew up in (Sob story time), gaming helped fill this void perfectly.

Madden NFL 17 - From No Name to the HOF

The NFL season maybe over, the New England Patriots and Tom Brady may have won another Superbowl and the off-season process of the Rookie Combine, Free Agency and The Draft is now upon us, but this doesn't mean that it's too late to be sitting down and playing a game of Madden NFL 17.

Final Fantasy XV - Imperial Foes & Chocobos

As soon as I saw the first trailer for Final Fantasy XV a few years ago, I knew that I would need it in my life. So when it was released on the 29th November I spent the entire month making sure that everyone knew it was on my Christmas wishlist. Unfortunately this didn't happen, but thankfully I managed to buy it in the boxing day sales and I haven't looked back since.
