Have you got a lucky pair of pants? Do you always stay inside on Friday 13th? Do you step to one side to avoid walking under ladders?

I’m not simply being nosy, I’m just listing a few of the common superstitions, some more extreme than others, than many people fall prey to. The point is that the same kind of thought processes can play a part in almost any form of gambling. Take flipping a coin for example; if I flip a coin and it lands on heads ten times in a row, and then I ask you to bet on how the next flip would end, what would you say? Would you say that it’s bound to be tails because it’s been heads so many times already? Or would you say it’s heads again because this coin seems to ‘prefer’ heads? Or, would you fall back on what you know about probability theory and state that, since every flip...

Desperados3.png
IMO, the best westerns have a collection of different character types to root for. Whether The Wild Bunch, The Hateful Eight, The Quick and the Dead, Silverado or The Magnificent Seven, give me gunslingers, thieves, assassins, trappers and bounty hunters and I'm a happy cowpoke. Desperados III is that sort of western. I can't wait to assemble my team and start the adventure.


You've met the bounty hunter Doc McCoy, you've been introduced to the bigmouth trapper Hector and of course you remember John Cooper, the knife throwing icon of the Desperados franchise. And if somebody forgot about about Miss Kate O'Hara, she´ll sure find a way to remind them. But now Mimimi Games and THQ Nordic are unveiling the last member of the Desperados III gang... meet Isabelle Moreau.

There are books, smartphone apps, and the array of images seems infinite. Mandala filling is one of the latest facets of the craze. So, what could a grown-up gain from this activity?

There are many benefits found in coloring. Like sudoku puzzles, it is more than a time killer. Special smartphone apps like paint by number can boast over a million users.

We've all met that person while playing games. You know, the one who isn't trying to win the game and doesn't really care of they lose.

They're there only to make sure YOU don't win the game. Call them griefer. Call them troll. In Wreckfest, you call them Bonebreaker.
