Far Cry Primal is an action-adventure video game published by Ubisoft that revolves around the story of Takkar who starts with nothing and rises to become the leader of the Wenja tribe. It is a rarity these days for a big game franchise to be released without multiplayer options and there’s a good reason why it’s a single player story-line based experience. The story follows the adventures of Takkar and his task is to gather all the Wenja and find sanctuary for his people in Oros, a promised land of sorts. The Udam and Izila will stop at nothing to kill all Wenja The quality of  the visuals and effects are by no means outstanding. The game takes you through an entire experience through the stone age with prehistoric wildlife such as mammoth’s, cave lions, saber-toothed cats and many more!

When Retro meets Modern

Atari

I’m not a big gamer anymore. Let’s just say times have changed.  Growing up with an older brother, however, gaming was always the go-to activity on a hot summer day, when we were alot younger.  I remember the first console we ever owned was an Atari and it was the ultimate craze. For those of you young’ns that might not know what an Atari is, it was equivalent to what a PS or Xbox in this day in age. But let’s not compare the two consoles at all. Like I said, times have changed and gaming has come a long, long way. Games such as Asteroids, Pong and Laser Blast were the talk of town and this is what they used to look like. We had to hook up our console to the TV and the games were built in and came…

Empty Swing

Kids these days are always huddled up indoors playing on their computers, smartphones and consoles and they’ve completely forgotten that there lies a whole world beyond the indoors.  What happened to the phrase “go play outside”. I remember when I was little, we used to play cops and robbers, climb trees, play tag and other various outdoorsy games. You just don’t see that anymore. Step outside (even if its just in your backyard) and make use of the amazing weather we have these days. We’ve got a whole variety of new products that will help you get in the spirit. Slackers Slackline: If you’re not familiar with slacklining, its a lot like tight rope walking. This is done so by place the line between two anchor points and then you balance along these lines. This is becoming really popular especially in the UAE and…

We’ve been really pleased with how Virgin Megastore Yas Mall has been doing. It’s been a huge success for us and for our loyal customers. Here’s a snippet of President Nisreen Shocair’s vision outlining the concept, the inspiration and the reaction of this disruptive space. The Concept Virgin Megastore has respositioned itself in the past nine years and has moved from being a ‘record or CD store’ or a ‘place to buy DVDs’ from to a one-stop shop for all things entertainment and an recognizable location for anything cool and hip. In order to reflect those changes, we needed to create a disruptive space, a flagship store, that would illustrate what this newly repositioned brand has to offer. We kept in mind the younger segment and created an environment which was urban and raw, with lots of street art, containers and…
