Despite its overly corporate sheen, the annual Game Awards show has slowly become one of the key dates on the gaming calendar. Taking over from Spike TV’s long-running Video Game Awards show in 2014, The Game Awards began life as a celebration of the year’s best games, but is now more anticipated as a glimpse into the next. With most of the year’s games on shelves by the time the December show rolls around, The Game Awards has become the venue of choice for publishers to announce new titles and shed more light on upcoming ones. Away from the throng and pressure of E3, The Game Awards has seen teasers and trailers for games as big as Metal Gear Solid V, Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding and From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. In its inaugural year, it was the first showcase to demo gameplay from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is hosted and arranged by former game journalist Geoff Keighley, the erstwhile host of the Spike … [Read more...] about The Game Awards 2018: What will we see at annual celebration turned game announcement hotbed?

PROFESSIONAL hunters have been slammed after posing with slain goats, sheep and stags. American Larysa Switlyk has posted a series of images on her social media showing off the “medals” from her hunts in Scotland. The huntress, who has her own TV show in the US, infuriated animal-lovers by bragging about taking out the “beautiful” creatures. For the past two weeks Switlyk and pals have been keeping followers up to date with their brutal adventures. In total she has posted pics of four dead stags, two goats and one sheep. She also posted a snap of her dinner one night saying: “Nothing better than enjoying what you hunt. Fresh Red Stag from our hunt in the Highlands of Scotland.” In her latest pic of a man posing next to a slain goat she said: “Congrats on Jason on his gold medal goat here in Scotland on Islay."

A BOASTING big game hunter has been slammed by celebs and animal rights activists after a pro-hunting group shared a photo of her proudly showing off her leopard kill. The unverified image of the woman, only referred to as Britany L, was shared on US-based Safari Club International and has since sparked world-wide outrage. But it turned out it is perhaps no surprise the hunter was posing with the dead animal. For animal experts believe the slaughtered leopard was likely the ninth largest ever hunted. The backlash was first sparked by South African artist Sue Dickinson, who dubbed the hunter a “cretin” in a Facebook post on September 10.

Celebrities like Naomi Campbell and Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes also expressed their horror. Kroes wrote: “How … [Read more...] about Female big game hunter slammed by celebrities and animal rights activists after proudly hugging slaughtered leopard
