Picture somebody playing a first-person shooter. You probably imagine them sitting stock still, staring ahead with an almost blank expression on their face, one that denotes quiet focus. You might, however, be missing one key detail: their eyes are moving all over the dang place.


I'm betting that a lot of people who played Far Cry 2 didn't finish it. It's a chaotic, gruelling game, and it's at least five hours too long. If you made it to the end, you got a finale just as flawed, ambitious, and bleak as the game preceding it. Spoilers will follow, of course!


We're halfway through season three of the Rocket League Championship Series and to celebrate, several teams are participating in an invitational where the maps and settings were determined by viewers. Opening the action were Atelier and Denial Esports, who would soon be plunged into the sound and fury of community-nominated novelty game modes.


Stop watching movies on your iPad. Stop browsing the web. Well, OK. You don't have to stop. But while you do all that stuff, don't forget that your iPad can play some great games. Which games do are best? Read on.


Blizzard's Hearthstone is about to undergo a monumental shift — first a new expansion, Journey To Un'Goro, containing 135 cards, will hit on April 6 (give or take a day). Secondly, a bunch of Standard-legal cards will rotate into "Wild", making them unavailable for official tournament play. Before these events happen, you'll want to make sure you're maxing out your rewards, including free dust, gold and packs.

The first day of April is always a difficult 24 hours to navigate if you want to avoid being tripped up by some zany product or service announcement from the likes of Google, Microsoft or, as we've seen today, Uncle Tobys and James Squire. To help you stay ahead of the game, we've selected the delicious (and not-so-delicious) fake stuff and put it all in the one place.


Everyone's favourite real-time strategy game is getting a face-lift. As Blizzard president Mike Morhaime announced at this weekend's I <3 StarCraft event in South Korea, the original game and its Brood War expansion are both getting an HD overhaul and being repackaged as StarCraft: Remastered, due out later this winter.


Prey may unashamedly be influenced by the likes of System Shock and Dead Space, but honestly, we could do with more of these sorts of games. With the title's May release fast approaching, publisher Bethesda has been ramping up the content drops. First we got a healthy chunk of gameplay and now more details about the characters and narrative, courtesy of the developers at Arkane Studios.


Ludwig "Zai" Wåhlberg isn't even 20-years-old and he's already won over $US1.1 ($1) million in esports prize money. In an exhibition match on Friday against recently formed Onyx, the Evil Geniuses player decided to transform into a tree and try to mess with his opponents just for the hell of it.


Physical controls are all the rage, but they've got nothing on sound! OK, they have everything on sound, but that hasn't stopped Andreas Refsgaard and Lasse Korsgaard, a pair of "interaction designers and creative coders", coming up with this experiment where one can play Wolfenstein 3D with just their mouth. Loud noise warning: Be sure to turn down your speakers before hitting play!


The dream of home automation. A much-talked about subject, but one few realise to any practical extent. Not so for the ingenious Allen Pan who, after being inspired by the Nintendo Switch and the recent release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, decided to rig his house to respond to tunes from Ocarina of Time, played from — you guessed it — an ocarina.
