With more and more rumours, suggestions, and speculations making the rounds related to the upcoming The Elder Scrolls VI, it is a good time to think about what the game will bring for longtime fans and also newcomers to the genre. Will it be more of the same in terms of offering a massive open-world RPG with many things to do within a sandbox game world? Or will the game be a giant step forward and offer an advanced engine as we have never seen before, revolutionizing the genre? Time will tell, but some things are already coming to light.


One of the best experiences I’ve had with gaming is when I discovered the original Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Master System. It was the first time in my life I had completed a game all the way through to the end. I’ve just recently started to play this game on a Mac emulator with Apple EarPods and it really brought me back to that age of gaming when everything was original and many ideas were yet to be tried.

The time frame was the early ‘90s, probably 1992, when I first laid my eyes and hands on the…


With the long-anticipated and rumored Diablo II remake finally being revealed at Blizzcon 2021, it is a great time to be both a Blizzard faithful and an action RPG fan. The upcoming title will be called Diablo II: Resurrected and the name is fitting because the game will not just be a simple port job.

Diablo II Resurrected is coming out later this year to all modern consoles and the PC. It will offer a brand new 3D physics-based engine running on top of the old engine and allow gamers to seamlessly switch between the old and new graphical…


Sony is on quite a roll of late. It launched the PlayStation 5 console late last year in most of the world including the U.S., Japan, and EU territories (although the US got it a week earlier). If you are a gamer and follow major game launches you may know that this was not always the case, where a console launched worldwide so close to a single date.

A Diablo 2 Remake Could Be a Great Opportunity for Blizzard

Please see my post-announcement story published on SUPERJUMP.

I have been hearing of a Diablo 2 remake being in development across various big media gaming channels and find it interesting if it turns out to be true. Diablo 2 was a game I remember fondly from my teenage years, but I always assumed it was inferior the the original, which is still one of my best gaming experiences to date. I loved it so much I even completed its expansion called Hellfire.

The sequel followed up the original directly…

My own design using Illustrator on iPad

Anyone who owns an Apple product, or in the case of many of us: many products, may be familiar with Adobe graphic design and creative suites. The Mac in the 80s and early 90s became synonymous with publishing and later graphic design, which in many ways is tied with Adobe’s dominance in this field. This is one facet that separates it from Microsoft up to this very day, even though most apps or software are available cross-platform.

I am also a fan of the Amiga even though I never experienced it when it was at its heigth or when it…

Good News if you are a gamer who owns an iOS device: Apple is now allowing streaming services to run on its devices without relying on iOS apps or the App Store to access the content. It is doing this through the Safari web browser and allowing web apps that use the power of the cloud to stream console and PC games to mobile devices like the iPad.

This will allow you to overcome barriers to AAA console developer focus and hardware limitations of your favorite iOS devices when compared to dedicated gaming consoles or PCs that cost up to…
