The World Of Davo | Metal... Gear?

What was your first Metal Gear experience? Maybe you played a weird port of the first Metal Gear on a Famicom. Or you got a VHS tape of the Metal Gear Solid 2 trailer with a magazine. Mine was seeing screenshots of the game in PlayStation magazines back before the games release in 1998 (or 1999, if you're in Europe).
This doesn't look like much now, but this was basically like being
James Bond when I was 12.

Top Five... Car Combat Games

Charging around in the Magnum Opus in Mad Max is a lot of fun, you can still get the game with 40% off on GMG until Friday. Considering that Avalanche are also in the process of tidying up Just Cause 3, that Mad Max arrives not only bristling with George Miller-inspired awesomeness and adrenaline-pumping fun, but is also deliciously optimised on PC too, is frankly brilliant and worthy of applause.

Anyway, to celebrate the game's release this week, and to revel in the spirit of vehicular violence, we thought we'd take a look at a few other games that did car combat brilliantly.

Remember, there's still time get 40% off Mad Max, AND be sure to look out for our competition later this week!

Oh what a day, what a lovely day!

Tech Tuesday | Gunnar Optiks – Intercept Kryptonite Gaming Glasses

Welcome to Tech Tuesday at Green Man Gaming, where we take a weekly look at gaming accessories, awesome hardware, and a whole lot more. This week, Alex takes a look at the Intercept Kryptonite Gaming Glasses from Gunnar Optiks.

This week, I was given the task of reviewing the Intercept Kryptonite Glasses from Gunnar Optiks. To help differentiate a little from other optical accessories in the market, Gunnar specs are the only ones to be backed and recommended by medical professionals, using patented technology to reduce eye strain, improve comfort and focus, and protect your eyes from fluorescent light, glare, and uncomfortable air currents.
I won't lie, going into this I was a little skeptical of the glasses, not fully understanding how they would work for me, especially as I have to wear glasses on a day to day basis. But after spending some serious time with the Intercepts, I have to say that I'm pretty impressed.
