Wolfenstein II doubles down on its “controversial” Nazis-are-bad stance

Recently, the Wolfenstein Twitter account, as well as publisher Bethesda, copped some flak for posting a trailer for the upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus which called to “Make America Nazi Free Again”. There were those who arced up over the belief that the developers were politicising the game, which is set in an alternate 1960s where the Nazis won World War II and America liv...[Read More]

Forza Motorsport 7 review: An amazing racing sim, with loot boxes

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. Racing simulators have never been my forte, as I’ve acknowledged previously. I like my racing games to be crazy bouts of super fast, teeth clenching, explosive fun. The simplest way I can put it is, for me, a great racing game is one where smashing an opponent into a wall is not only acceptable, but encouraged. Forza Motorsport 7 is the comp...[Read More]

Check out some new Jurassic World Evolution in-game footage

Jurassic World Evolution was easily the most interesting thing announced in Xbox’s Gamescom coverage a couple month’s back. No one had any idea the game by Frontier Developments was in the works, but it got everyone excited because the idea of a modern dinosaur park creation simulator is one only the most Jeff Goldblum-ey of people wouldn’t be in favour of. Now a new trailer for ...[Read More]

Misses the mark

Observer review: Blade stumbler…

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. There are few things more disappointing than a game that features some great ideas but ultimately fails to live up to any of them. Like having a combination of ice cream and jelly for dessert. I love me some ice cream, and jelly too is a wonderful concoction of deliciousness and wobble, but put them together in a bowl and all you have is a slimy, squidg...[Read More]

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy review: Same old Uncharted, but different

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Originally touted as the first singleplayer DLC for the Uncharted franchise but later evolving into a larger standalone release, The Lost Legacy is an interesting departure for the series. For many, it needed to answer a burning question: can Uncharted survive without its signature wisecracking, swashbuckling protagonist, Nathan Drake? Well, ...[Read More]

Knack 2 accidentally available for free on Aussie PSN Store

While I’m sure most of you out there are gearing up to jump into Destiny 2 today, anyone who was holding out for Knack 2 have been treated to a surprise: it’s currently listed as free on the PSN Store. We tested it ourselves, and once you complete your cart transaction of zero dollars, a download of the full 35gb of Knack 2 begins, so it’s definitely not the demo. No word from So...[Read More]

Wipeout: Omega Collection review: Now THIS is a racing game

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. I have a very troubled relationship with racing games. Like I said in my Driveclub VR review, I don’t really like the kind of racing games hardcore fans of the genre like. You know, the “simulators”, where careful attention has been made to make sure the cars feel like real cars, where spinning out and crashing is considered...[Read More]

Xbox Gamescom roundup: New consoles, trailers and JURASSIC PARK

Gamescom 2017 doesn’t officially start for a couple more days, but that doesn’t mean the big publishers aren’t going to start dropping announcements. First cab off the rank is Xbox, bringing with them a bunch of new trailers for already announced games, some Xbox One console announcements, and a trailer for a whole new game that I bet you can’t guess what it is. So, here we...[Read More]

Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy review: N.Credibly N.Joyable N.Third Pun

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Goddamn, nostalgia is a hell of thing, isn’t it? I was a gigantic fan of Crash Bandicoot when I was a child, having smashed through the original trilogy, along with Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash, on my old PS1. As a hardcore Playstation fan back in the day, Crash and his cohort of sidekicks and villains were essentially my Mario, Lui...[Read More]

See a man in a Crash suit try to be a fair dinkum, true blue Aussie bloke

So, the Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy is out now. Some people, like yours truly, are having a blast with it. Others, like my co-editor Charlie, are struggling to love it thanks to its dated feel. I don’t know why people playing a remaster of a 20-year-old game that prides itself on maintaining the original’s feel expected it to play like anything other than a 20-year-old game, but I ...[Read More]

Modern Warfare Remastered is getting a super expensive standalone release tomorrow

In a decision that is sure to bring some relief to the small group of people who held out on purchasing the Legacy or Legacy Pro editions of last year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the rerelease of Modern Warfare will arrive on PS4 both digitally and in r...[Read More]
