    *This blog post may contain spoilers

    2018 has been a massive year for video games, and in October we saw the release of the most anticipated game of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2. This game really does have everything you would want from an open world RPG (role playing game); from breath-taking scenery to immersive missions and, quite frankly, a ridiculous attention to detail.

  • Best Upcoming Shooter Video Games for 2019

    Unsurprisingly, the video game industry is continuing to grow at breakneck speeds and shows no sign of slowing down. Last year, it was expected that a total of 2.3 billion gamers worldwide would reach into their pockets and spend approximately $137 billion on games. Perhaps slightly more surprising was that, of those revenues, 50% was expected to come from mobile platforms – this includes smartphones and tablets. With more money, more media coverage and more technology than ever before, we can expect 2019 to be a blockbuster year for video games in terms of size, scale and visual advancements. Naturally, being airsofters, we’ve got an especially keen eye on the upcoming shooting games due to grace our screens; because if we’re not madly running around the battlefield with our airsoft rifles, we’re doing it in a video game! So, whether you’ll be teaming up with your airsoft pals or competing for bragging rights, here are some of our top shooter games due for release this year.

    The world of YouTube has opened up a wealth of opportunity for airsofters, allowing us to share our own battles, successes and occasional fails, and watch other people’s experiences too! The success of YouTube has spawned a plethora of different airsoft content creators, some with higher quality videos than others, and sometimes it’s difficult to pick the wheat from the chaff. So with this article, we’ve highlighted some of the best airsoft YouTubers based on the quality of their video content, regular uploads and how many viewers and subscribers their channel has. We know this can be a pretty hot topic (and this certainly isn’t an exhaustive list), which is why we’ve picked these YouTubers based on the stats as opposed to our own personal opinions.

  • Tokyo Marui Set to Launch GunArena Airsoft Arcade Game

    Two men using a Time Crisis arcade machine.

    We love airsoft guns, that much is obvious. We also love video games, as highlighted in some of our previous blog posts. So, when we stumbled across the news that those two loves were being combined, we were like the proverbial kids in the sweet shop!

    Tokyo Marui has teamed up with companies Taito and Natsume-Atari to work on the GunArena airsoft arcade game, with testing on the machine set to be carried out this June (2018). Continue reading

  • Which Action Hero Would You Have in your Airsoft Team?

    Team members crouching behind cover with airsoft guns

    There is a plethora of action heroes that have been brought to us from films, books and video games who complete awe-inspiring feats and somehow come out of it unscathed. This got us thinking; if we could have any action hero standing next to us at our next skirmish, loaded to the gills with airsoft guns, who would we choose?

    With this in mind, we looked at a number of characters from over the years and contemplated their pros and cons to decide whether they would make a good teammate; which hero would you choose?

    Note – the action heroes we have picked here are all “normal” people – i.e. no superpowers! Continue reading

    Sonic the Hedgehog is probably one of the most iconic video game characters to have ever existed. The spikey, blue, anthropomorphic hedgehog has been the mascot of Sega since 1991 and is known for his exploits against the evil Dr Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik.

    But his backstory was almost very different, according to game designer Hirokazu Yasuhara and character designer Naoto Oshima. Continue reading

  • Combat helmet-mounted HUD brings the future into the present

    Call of Duty HUD

    We’ve all seen a HUD (heads up display) on films and in video games such as Call of Duty. Typically, they display a mini-map, remaining bullets in a clip and any remaining equipment you might have to use.

    Up until now, this has pretty much been a work of fiction, but Rockwell Collins have unveiled a new system which puts a HUD and the associated information front and centre. Continue reading

  • Turns out the Battlefield game makers really did their homework

    Battlefield 1 screenshot – historically accurate according to experts

    Being one of the most anticipated games to come out this year, Battlefield 1 is getting a lot of people excited for its release – and the historical trailer released in May certainly added to the hype.
