    Bebo & Beyond

    Bebo & Beyond

    If you were lucky enough to be a teen in the mid-two-thousands, then you'd most likely be aware of the absolute gem known to us as Bebo; the social network that captured the hearts of every emo, chav, and geek alike back in the day. And if not, well then you missed out on an incredible journey I must say.Bebo first launched in 2005 on web browsers as a basic social networking hub with a focal point aimed towards the tween generation and desperate kids looking for an output for their antics. A place at which they could unload all of their problems in ranty posts and vanity mirror selfies in hope of being seen or heard.Unlike anything we'd see on Facebook these days, Bebo wasn't at all afraid to go a little far fetched when it came to profile design and unorthodox methods for drawing in a crowd.With the ability to spice up your profile with special skin overlays or personalized theme tunes when clicking on your page, Bebo flicked formality out of the window and embraced everyone's inner child rather beautifully. There was a certain freedom a user could have with Bebo, and unlike today's social networks, Bebo allowed us almost free-reign over the majority of our page. From customizable modules to sparkling photo filters, unique soundtracks to artsy 'bricks' for your profile wall. Bebo had it all and more, and with a tweak or two, it was destined to make history in the eyes of every teenage kid from London to Toronto.

    The Golden Age of Virtual MMO Games

    The Golden Age of Virtual MMO Games

    I'll proudly admit that there was once a time I'd be happy spending a whole weekend binging games like Habbo Hotel from the comfort of a dark and dingy room with nothing but a six-pack of Fanta and an illuminated monitor.

    The Microtransaction Era | Video Games

    Seems like AAA titles can't hit the public these days without sneaking in a cheeky microtransaction or two, can they?

    PS4 Exclusives that Crushed the Xbox One

    PS4 Exclusives that Crushed the Xbox One

    As we enter the final greatest hits era of the current-gen consoles, I think it's fair to say we've seen some magnificent titles over the last five years. And that even goes out to Microsoft, too. Because as much as I'd like to fangirl over the idea that Sony produces the superior exclusives, I can also vouch for Xbox and some of their golden titles, too. But sadly, as I look back over the years and try to shove back the biased opinion over the two consoles, I still always manage to come to the same conclusion. And that is that Playstation just has better games overall. I'm sorry if that offends certain players, and I bloody know it more than likely will.Yes, I've played Forza. Yes, I've played Gears of War. But do those two or three good experiences make up for the handfuls of stunning journeys I've encountered with the PS4 exclusives? No, I'm afraid not. Because Sony knows how to make a good game, and once they produce gold, they strike it and milk that mine for all it's worth.So let's take a look at some of the most memorable and successful PS4 exclusives to date, and should you be in a position to choose between consoles, perhaps this will whet your appetite for the better choice! *wink wink*It's not too late to switch sides, Microsoft fans. There's plenty of PS Exclusives for you to get your hands on. And when the time finally arrives where you can pick up current-gen consoles for bargain prices, hopefully, you'll know what to do.Allow me to enlighten you.I present to you, PS4 EXCLUSIVES THAT CRUSHED THE XBOX ONE.

    Tired

    Tired

    I'm tired. Really, really tired. Of this world, of today's trends and of pointlessly seeking for approval from people I've never even met before.
