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

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is officially getting a standalone release following an a recent announcement from Activision. 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]

Overwatch loot boxes are about to get less terrible

Look, I love Overwatch. I mean, it was my 2016 Game of the Year, which for a story-less, multiplayer only game is one heck of an achievement. What can I say, I had a great year hooking pesky Tracers and raining justice from elevated positions. But despite Overwatch’s many great elements, its gambling-esque, majorly stacked against you loot box system is the worst. In order to unlock the cosm...[Read More]

Misses the mark

Perception review: Lost in the dark

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. “Run-n-hide” horror games are nothing new, nor are they in short supply these days. The success of indie games such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent and the Outlast franchise showed that powerlessness against a formidable foe can certainly get the heart pumping, and thus a genre was born. But instead of being just another face in the spooky crow...[Read More]

Highlights from the Xbox showcase – E3 2017

So E3 2017 is in full swing, with the Xbox showcase taking place this morning. There were hardware announcements, gameplay reveals and given Xbox were keen to say they had 42 games to present, plenty of titles just dropped with no real information. Yay!

Xbox One X revealed, launching November at $649 in Australia – E3 2017

During their E3 stage show this morning (AEST time), Microsoft lifted the veil on Project Scorpio, now dubbed the Xbox One X.
