Destiny: Rise of Iron – A comprehensive Light levelling guide

As Aaron mentioned in his review, Rise of Iron is light on content, but gets heavy on Light levels. The infusion system itself is unchanged since The Taken King’s April Update, but earning stronger gear slows to a crawl once you hit a certain point, which means reaching the maximum Light is a little more complicated. There are three distinct phases to Light Level increases, so here is how to effic...[Read More]

Firewatch is getting a movie adaptation

Firewatch, Campo Santo’s walking simulator/interactive drama released earlier this year, is being made into a movie thanks to a partnership between the studio and film production company Good Universe. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Campo Santo and Good Universe are partnering to “develop content for both video games and feature films,” with the Firewatch movie being their ...[Read More]

New Mafia III gameplay is a blues-filled shootout

Mafia III is just around the corner, and if this latest gameplay footage is anything to go by, along with the last couple of trailers, I think the soundtrack will be my favourite thing about it. I’m truly my father’s son and love me some blues/rock; and given the game is set in the 1960s American South, I think I’m going to get my fill of guitars and harmonicas. In this new gamep...[Read More]

Someone remade Battlefield 1’s trailer using the beta’s glitches

Who doesn’t love hilarious video game glitches? Sure, they’re annoying when they constantly invade your game and render it unplayable, but if occasionally you’re happily playing and then suddenly the sex scenes you were planning to enjoy turn into hilarious, weapons grade nightmare fuel, they can be a lot of fun. Heck, Kotaku have “Highlight Reel”, an entire video ser...[Read More]

Digital Homicide are making it rain lawsuits

When news struck that Digital Homicide were suing Jim Sterling back in March, those who followed the feud between the YouTuber and the game devs weren’t too surprised. The relationship between the two had been hostile for a long time, since Sterling called them out on making asset flip games, and they reacted, by criticising Sterling for turning gamers against them. For those wanting backgro...[Read More]

Pit People closed beta: First impressions

I’ve been playing the Pit People Beta for almost a week now, and I’ve got to say, at first I really didn’t enjoy it. I’d never played a game like it before, and I really had no idea what I was doing. But to my surprise, it gradually grew on me. Pit People is the fourth game from The Behemoth, the studio behind Castle Crashers and Battleblock Theatre. The Behemoth has two goals when designing a new...[Read More]

South Park: The Fractured But Whole delayed to 2017

Another day, another major upcoming game release delayed. In a comically brief post on the Ubisoft blog, the publisher announced that South Park: The Fractured But Whole won’t be making its original December 6 release date and will instead be coming in the Q1 2017. “South Park: The Fractured But Whole will now launch on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, calendar Q1 2017,” the post ...[Read More]

Resident Evil VII demo is getting an update, plus a new trailer

The Resident Evil VII demo on Playstation 4, dubbed The Beginning Hour, has gotten an update within the past 24 hours according to the Playstation Blog. Details are scarce as to what exactly the update adds to the experience, just that it “expands on what you can do and explore.” Since Beginning Hour’s release in June players have been trying to uncover its mysteries, and have be...[Read More]

The Last Guardian delayed until December

I knew it was too good to be true. The Last Guardian has been in development for so damn long now that even when they announced its October release date at E3 in June I said to myself I wouldn’t believe it until the game was actually in my hands. Well, my and many others’ hands shall be waiting a little bit longer, as overnight Playstation president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida ...[Read More]

PokéStop proximity used to advertise rental property

Be honest, is anyone really still playing Pokémon GO? After my initial adventures led to a constant grind to reach the insanely high bar of entry to battle Pokémon Gyms, and when I discovered the real cost of all that grinding, I uninstalled the app from my phone. I kept running out of Pokéballs, and without the ability to directly battle my friends, the effort I was taking to go out and...[Read More]

Skyrim and Fallout 4 won’t receive mods on PlayStation

Despite what was previously announced, fans of Bethesda’s RPGs playing on PlayStation won’t be able to use mods. A post from Bethesda’s site states that Sony won’t allow the integration of mods in Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim Special Edition for an unspecified reason. “After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to of...[Read More]

What do upgraded consoles mean for system shelf life?

So yesterday Sony announced the PlayStation 4 Pro, which for those that don’t already know, is pretty much a half step up for the console. Retailing at AU$559.95 the new console isn’t the cheapest piece of hardware, and it could be superseded before too long. Historically consoles have had relatively short shelf lives, sticking around for an average of five to six years before being re...[Read More]
