After about 2-3 minutes into Dark Souls III I met my first boss, not random, it was meant for us to cross paths at this moment, and at that exact moment I knew I had made a huge mistake trying to do this review for Dark Souls III in time. However, I survived, not only that battle but all the...
If you have an interest in JRPGs then you are already familiar with developer Gust, known for the Atelier and Ar tonelico series. However, if you are not familiar with these games and still interested in Nights of Azure, you might be fond of another series that this game lends heavily from,...
As a long time Hitman fan it is always scary for me personally whenever a new Hitman game releases, not because I am afraid it won't live up to my expectations but simply the fear of not having enough time to play it all the time, stupid sleep and family. You can imagine my ears perked up when...
I played this original game when it first released, back then I was 12 years old, I am now … older than that but it still evokes the same amazing experience as it did back then. And that is a true testament to how incredible good this game was, and is. I go back to my childhood and re-play the...
Dark Souls III is right around the corner and I just played something that might interest you and kill some of this horrible downtime you are experiencing right now as you wait for the game to release. The game I am talking about is a 2D... wait, where are you going? Hear me out! This game is a...
There has been numerous games released under the indie survival horror game genre these last couple of years, most of these has created a mediocre to low critical praise while others such as Outlast, Slender and Amnesia: The Dark Descent has managed to create a rather positive buzz, so when I...
Better late than never. When Deadpool first arrived on the previous consoles we wrote “There is nothing unique here, but it is still one of the most fun and entertaining experiences I have had in a long time. It is good to play a game that is just that, a game, a fun and entertaining experience...
How bold is it to remove one of the main draws of a product and replace it with something completely new? Dying Light The Following does just that, the parkour aspect of the game that was hailed when it first released as a game changer has now been pushed aside and instead you get a vehicle, a...
Are you ready for some darkness? Are you ready to have the lives of different survivors in your hands, keeping them fed, medicated, and away from depression during a raging war? This is a survival war game with the inspiration taken from the 92-96 Siege of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War, and...
There are way too many racing games which gives the control complete control from the beginning, there are no real skill involved you just push the gas and drift through the different turns until you finally hit the finish line, these are mostly arcade racing games and there is fun to be had...
If I had a Playstation Vita I think Gravity Rush would be one of my favourite games on that system, sadly though I had one for a incredible short period of time until I realized it was just collecting dust and got rid of it before I encountered Gravity Rush. Luckily for me and many other who...
Omega Force is back at it again with another release, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend. Omega Force most noticeably known for their work on the Dynasty Warriors series, but also games like One Piece: Pirate Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below...
Just Cause 3 has finally been unleashed upon us, and judging by the trailers and previews leading up to the games released it seemed like third time the charm, but sadly, Just Cause 3 is riddled with the same problems the previous games encountered, glitches, game breaking bugs and repetitive...
It is that time of the year again, it is Fallout season. As a long time Fallout fan you can imagine my excitement when our PS4 review code for Fallout 4 finally came. Fallout 4 seems familiar the second you start playing it if you have previously played a Fallout game (Fallout 3 most...
Third times the charm is a saying that rarely holds any meaning, the same can be said for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 seeing as the previous two on the series has seen incredible success and it was a no-brainer that we would get a third in the series. The question is however, can Treyarch have...

EIZO, HyperX, and Razer are proud to join DreamHack in presenting the DreamHack Open 2014 Tour with six live StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm tournaments across Europe. The best Starcraft II pro-gamers from around the globe will have the opportunity to compete for a total of $200,000 being awarded as well as earn their place in esports history as the next DreamHack Open Champion.
DreamHack Open 2014 will feature the same core format that fans and players have come to know and love in the 2013 year; including completely open sign-ups as well as the much praised final eight players show. With a newly added stop in Moscow, each DreamHack Open stop will qualify four players to the tour-ending Grand Finals hosted at DreamHack Winter. To make it to the final championship at DreamHack Winter, every single player will need to prove themselves at a live tour stop.
“DreamHack Open had an explosive ending in 2013 with Team Liquid’s TaeJa concluding a year of domination with a victory over StarTale’s Life. We are very excited to see how the stories will unfold in 2014.” says DreamHack CEO, Robert Ohlén “Of course none of this would be possible without the support of our sponsors, so we are thrilled to welcome back EIZO and HyperX, as well as welcome Razer and thank them for making 2014 the biggest year for DreamHack Open yet.”

DREAMHACK OPEN FORMAT, PRIZE MONEY AND WCS POINTS
For 2014, DreamHack Open will feature a very similar circuit format to 2013. Each Open tour stop will feature sign-up for open participation of up to 96 players, a mixture of professionals as well as amateurs. All competitors will compete in 3 group stages to narrow down to 16 players, and from here the competition will become single elimination best of 3, with a best of 5 grand finals. An important note is this year we will align with the StarCraft II World Championship Series (WCS) system, and shift from using round-robin group stage format to dual tournament group stage format. We are proud to continue partnership with Blizzard Entertainment and the StarCraft II WCS competition in offering 4,000 WCS points for every DreamHack Open Tour stop. The top four players of each open tour stop will qualify to the DreamHack Open Grand Finals to be hosted at DreamHack Winter 2014.
