Here below you can see what events are lined up –
A podcast by two friends who enjoy having a chat about gaming behind the mic. Discussing what they’ve been playing, what caught their interest and related interesting topics. They might even drag in a guest or two for the ride.
The Competition (19th and 20th March)
Players will be playing the first 25min of the Spider-Man PS4 game where they will learn the controls and fight Wilson Fisk (the kingpin). It will be a timed competition where only the fight with the kingpin will be timed, with the experience culminating in the epic fight. The least time taken to kill the kingpin will win a free standard game from Gamebreaker.
