Review - Batman: The Telltale Series

Telltale has been seeing great success these last few years and it seems like there is a new Telltale game being released every 6 month, and then a new series announced a month later. Now don't get me wrong, I love the Telltale series at the moment and I feel we need as many of these as they...

Review - Overcooked

Cooking! Who doesn't love cooking? Am I right?? Wait where are you going? OK fine! It is a game, a really funny game, and it has coop in it. Good, you are back. Alright listen, Overcooked is a great coop game but not as good of a single player game and here is why

Review - Brutal

Brut@l is something as uncommon as a ASCII dungeon crawler, now you sit back and you think hard for a second when that genre was last mentioned nowadays. Now that you realize how rare this is let us explain to you why Brut@l is a game you should at least check out

Review - Marvel Ultimate Alliance Bundle

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is back you guys! But hold up, it is not a new game in the series it is a repackaging of the previous games all rolled up in one bag. So as a long time fan of both Marvel and the Ultimate Alliance series I was eager to check out how they preformed on the new consoles...

If you take former Criterion Games founders and Developers Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward, put a studio behind them, call it Three Fields Entertainment and try to imagine what game they would make would your first guess be a golf game? Well this is where we are, as Dangerous Golf emerges onto the...

If you do not know who Pac-Man is then I feel sorry for you. However if you are familiar with the yellow character then chances are you have already played this game on a mobile device, but this is the review for the Playstation 4 version of Pac-Man 256 developed by Hipster Whale

Review - 7 Days to Die (PS4)

This is a weird one, 7 Days to Die is still on Steam's Early Access and yet here we are, with a review for the released Playstation 4 version. But with a hunger for survival games that seems to never end there is clearly a market for games like this to be released, eventhough it is a glitchy...

Review - Heart & Slash

Review - Heart & Slash

Heart & Slash is a rouge-like game, meaning you loose everything whenever you die. It is similar to older games that I grew up on where you usually had to finish a game in one sitting if you ever were to see the ending. Luckily for this game you bring something with you in the afterlife as...

Review - DEX

The first time I started playing DEX I remember thinking that this wasn't the game I thought it would be and if I didn't review it then chances are I would have turned it off and probably never picked it back up again, but luckily for me I didn't and slowly but surely it went from a downer to...

Review - Kerbal Space Program (PS4)

Kerbal Space Program has finally come to console, but how does a game so intricate and complex transfer to a controller? I have to admit that I was a bit nervous heading in to this review seeing how much I love playing KSP on the PC, but I suited and booted up and tried out the Playstation 4...

Review - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Blood and Wine DLC

The Witcher 3 had my game of the year title back when it released last year. A year has passed and it is still one of the best experiences I have had on the new consoles. I finally finished the latest DLC Blood and Wine and I’ll be damned if this isn't one of the best games I have played in a...

Review - N.E.R.O

NERO, or Nothing Ever Remains Obscure is one of those experiences that you sit back and question what a game truly is anymore. It has many description but the official one is “a wonderful journey in a world of incredible beauty...” or to be more specific “a story-driven first-person puzzle game...

Review - Lost Sea

Review - Lost Sea

Ah, the Bermuda Triangle, a ancient legend that has been played out for years while still nobody has been able to answer its questions. Seems fitting to call a game that takes place within this triangle Lost Sea, and that is precisely what Eastasiasoft has called their latest game

Review - Fenix Furia

Review - Fenix Furia

Fenix Furia is as close to a new Super Meatboy game you can get at the moment. It is a 2D action platformer which calls for quick reactions and 100 % total control of the controller at all times. With hairpin precision this is one of those “try and fail” games where you at times pull every...

Review - Uncharted 4

Lets be honest, if you own a Playstation there is no chance in hell you do not already know what the Uncharted series is. Either you have played all of them, played some of them or at least one of them and you already have a opinion on whether you like the series or not. If you are reading this...

HotS Logo2

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.

Total Prize Money : $200,000
