The Future Of Playfire Rewards


The Playfire Rewards BETA has become a central part of the Playfire experience since we launched the BETA in December 2013. Since then, we’ve given away nearly 4 million Rewards, earned by millions of dedicated Playfire members.

Daily Giggle | Grand Theft Auto VHS


Some enterprising fellow has cut together a cracking GTA V video with a bunch of grainy filters, 4:3 ratio, and some period tunes to make a sort of 80s TV sendup of Grand Theft Auto. It's sort of like a straight-to-VHS GTA mini-movie.

Top Five... Best Horses in Gaming


Hot damn, The Witcher 3 is a big game. Thankfully, though, Geralt has his trusty steed Roach to help him traverse the Northern Realms at a decent pace. That got us thinking about the finest horses in gaming, and here they are – five of the best...

Daily Giggle | LEGO First-Person Shooter


I need this in my life. As much as I love the Traveller's Tales LEGO games, it's time they shook things up a little. A LEGO FPS could be great!

COMPETITION | Win The Next Penelope!

The Next Penelope is fantastic. A blisteringly quick, top-down action racer, it sort of resembles a cross between F-Zero and Velocity.

If you're unfamiliar with those two games, allow me to reassure you that such a mashup equals neon-soaked speedy awesomeness.

Anyway, the publisher has kindly gifted us four keys for The Next Penelope, which emerges from early access this Friday. With that in mind, time for another giveaway!

What's your most outrageous prediction for this year's E3? #GMGasks

Hear that sound? That's the hype train coming around the bend.

We're just a couple of weeks away from E3 and we're already lining up our predictions and a long list of hopeful expectations for this year's show.

But before all of that happens, we want to hear from you! What are you excited to see at this E3? What games and announcements are you looking forward to most? And above all else, what are the most outrageous predictions you've got for this year's show? #GMGasks.

Crack out the crystal ball, folks. Let's get some serious soothsaying going on here!

Daily Giggle | Mario Kart: Fury Road


What a lovely day... for a spot of karting.

There are so many fantastic touches to this mashup, from subtle visual garnishes to the wonderfully timed sound effects. Mario Kart has never been so very fast, nor this utterly furious.

Tech Tuesday | Buyers' Guide – MadCatz R.A.T. 7 & M.M.O. TE

Welcome to Tech Tuesday. A new column here on the GMG/Playfire blog where we take a look at a new bit of gaming hardware or awesome accessory each week. 

The R.A.T. range has always been about two main things: serious performance an unprecedented customisation. And it’s long succeeded at both. Let’s be honest. MadCatz mice are unlikely to win too many awards for clean lines and sleek looks. But when it comes to a device that's going to be completely obscured by your hand 99% of the time, none of that really matters. What matters is quality and functionality – and the R.A.T. series certainly knows what's up when it comes to that sort of thing.

Daily Giggle | Man of Steel

Because when you're on top of the world, nothing can bring you down! [via]

Square Enix Sale Week – up to 75% off Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, Thief and more


Warner Bros Weekend is sadly done, but welcome to Square Enix Promo Week! Yes, over the next five days we have a frankly ridiculous roster of deals on a vast range of Square Enix titles.

From headline blockbusters like Tomb Raider, Just Cause, Hitman, and Sleeping Dogs to classics from years past such as Anachronox, Legacy of Kain, and Thief, pretty much everything is 75% off.

Daily Giggle | Childhood

I bet if I totted up the amount of time I'd spend scrabbling around under a car trying to fish out balls and frisbees and my sister's Pikachu furbie thing that I once punted out of a window, I could probably have enough to do several playthroughs of MGS: Ground Zeroes.

Mind you, I had the telescopic reach of the abnormally tall and lanky. The chaps above don't stand a chance with their pokey limbs. [via]

Daily Giggle | Transformers Ruin Everything

So I'm aware that this is not directly related to video games, but given that there are Transformers games, I think I can just about make a tenuous justification for posting this today.

Basically, it's an excellently-edited montage of Transformers ruining everyone's favourite films. [via]
