Pretty much the only game I’ve been “Dying” to get my hands on is finally here. Techland’s post-apocalyptic open-world game Dying Light 2: Stay Human has been on my radar the moment they announced it, and more recently Techland came out suggesting that the game would take anywhere up to

Long before I joined the ranks here at MKAU Gaming, I worked as a farmhand on a turf farm. It wasn’t particularly exciting work, but there was something strangely calming about driving a tractor back and forth, mowing the grass, spreading fertiliser and weed killer, and then going home covered
