The John Lewis Christmas advert is more Tiny Dancer than Dasher and Prancer

Business, Christmas, Lifestyle
Department store chain John Lewis & Partners have released their 2018 Christmas advert, in a modern tradition widely seen as the unofficial start of the festive season. John Lewis & Partners’ master marketeers have, for the last decade, tugged on the nation’s heartstrings with their annual Christmas campaigns aimed at making John Lewis stores synonymous with Christmas shopping. Their new advert eschews the traditional softly-sung cover versions of famous songs with Elton John, singing his seminal anthem Your Song - keen John Lewis advert fans will note this was previously covered by Ellie Goulding for the 2010 John Lewis ad. The whistle-stop tour of Elton John’s piano-playing career is certainly emotive, but has had a mixed reaction from the public: Don't get me wrong,

Blizzard Gaming faces backlash over Diablo announcement on Blizzcon

The annual PC gaming convention held by Blizzard Entertainment in Anaheim, CA wrapped up earlier this week and it’s safe to say that the fans went home with mixed emotions. Judging from the huge response on online platforms like Twitter and Reddit, the changes to ongoing Blizzard projects as well as the ones yet to be launched had torn the fanbase apart. The main talking point of the convention was, of course, the announcement of a long-anticipated, brand-new Diablo game. Since the original Diablo hack ’n’ slash stormed the hearts and wallets of PC gamers in 2000, Blizzard has continued to skillfully widen the fanbase of what had become one of the flagships in the company’s fleet of games.

Want to taste the life of rich and famous? You can do that in a video game. Big news for the fans of life simulation game The Sims as Electronic Arts announced last Friday the release of a new expansion pack The Sims 4: Get Famous.

It comes with three neighborhoods: Mirage Park, The Pinnacles and Starlight Boulevard. At first glance the new world looks a bit disappointing. There are only 11 lots, from which only 2 are residential. This means that there are only 2 lots where you'll be able to build and expand your virtual city. A hidden neighborhood called Plumbob Pictures.
