VideAU Games Feature: What is it that people love about Call of Duty?

I know so many people who love Call of Duty. I mean love it. They play it every day, they get super pumped whenever a new game in the franchise is announced, and they don’t seem to mind grinding their multiplayer profile all the way back up to Prestige with each new title.

Diary of a Terrible Bloodborne Player - The First Hour

Let me be clear: I am the worst Dark Souls player in the world. I mean, I really struggle to get anywhere in those games. I wander and I flail and I die over and over and over.

Thus, I felt compelled to keep a diary of the experience. Here is how Bloodborne treated me in its first hour. Let us know over at @videaugames on Twitter if you'd like to hear more of my bungling adventures in Yharnam.

Tech News: Optus teams up with Netflix to offer free subscriptions, and Ricky Gervais wants to tell you about it

With Netflix finally launching in Australia and New Zealand today, all eyes are on the online entertainment service and it's promising potential to shake up what we know of Australian subscription television/streaming.

To further this inevitable spread of Netflix, the service has teamed up with Optus to offer package deals which would see customers receive extra data plus six months of Netflix for free. The deal is so good that even people who gain nothing from it are getting involved...like Ricky Gervais.
