Hands on with Super Mario Odyssey: A weird and familiar game

It’s been a while since the last Mario adventure, which means we’re all the more excited for Super Mario Odyssey. This will be the first big Super Mario title launching on the Switch, making its success all the more important. Well, fortunately we can say that the game doesn’t disappoint. Earlier in the week we were invited to Nintendo’s office to check out the game for our...[Read More]

Five starting tips for Destiny 2

Like every other reviewer, we’re still grinding our way through Destiny 2, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t already learnt a few things. So, if you haven’t had the time to fully invest yourself into Bungie’s loot-pit, or you’re just plain stuck, here are some quick tips that will help you catch up or give you a smoother experience. Levelling is more streamlined As with The Taken King and Rise of I...[Read More]

Games should give the slow moving injury sequences a rest

Destiny 2 is the latest in a long line of games to feature an extended sequence where the protagonist is injured – which naturally causes them to move like a snail. The mechanic isn’t exactly new. In fact there are so many examples of it that I can’t think of them all off the top of my head (feel free to comment some examples below). Controlling a slow moving character is basical...[Read More]

Destiny 2 on PC: Beta than console

I covered most of my general thoughts about the Destiny 2 beta in my analysis of the console beta, so I’ll keep most of my focus on how the game performs on PC. In short: Destiny 2’s PC version seems to be the pinnacle of the game. The PS4 version can keep all its exclusives, and Xbox can keep its nothing of value; the PC is where the game runs smoothest and is the most visually stunning. I’m not ...[Read More]

Trees will mess you up in first person Battlegrounds servers

FPP servers are now available in Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds for NA, EU and AS regions. The update allows players to battle it out only in first-person mode, which makes the already sweat inducing game that much more terrifying. I decided to jump into a solo round and try my hand at the new mode, and luckily for me, my first FPP round would also be in the rain, making it that much more te...[Read More]

Anime video games that got the best, worst, and strangest treatment

In an oversaturated game market, talking about things that suck is easy. You stick the terrible game in your console (or load up your rom and pretend what you’re doing is totally legal) spout some choice words at it, and let it die in the Abyss of Forgotten Games. But what if the game in question is from a super niche interest…like let’s say anime video games. You’re a serious otaku, so you’ll try...[Read More]

One does not simply respect consumers: Shadow of War will have paid content

Sons of PC! Of PlayStation! My brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of gamers fails, when we forsake our friends and buy shitty additional content, but it is not this day. An hour of lootboxes and shattered wallets, when the age of common sense comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold...[Read More]

A look at the most shameless video game clones

The video game market is filled with niche genres. From fighting games to first-person shooters, RPGs to puzzle games, all of us have our favorite go-to. And within every genre of game, there’s a huge sub-collection of games that satisfy our player preference- games that follow a set of rules or decorum that help it feel familiar, like playing Tetris Attack and moving on to Puzzle Fighter. Or play...[Read More]

There’s something horrific hiding in Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is a child friendly game, or at least it presents itself that way. However, lurking beneath the surface is a tale so horrific it boggles the mind. Part of what makes Splatoon 2 a great title – as you can read in our review – is the world building in Inkopolis, where you can visit stores and kit yourself out with new weapons, fancy clothes and purchase some pure unadulterated...[Read More]

Destiny 2’s Beta analysis – The good, the bad, and the beautiful

There wasn’t much to do in Destiny 2’s console beta, but there’s plenty to talk about. From PVE to PVP, let’s start with the good. The opening mission was one of the best ever As Charlie said in his initial impressions, the opening mission, ‘Homecoming,’ quickly set up Destiny 2’s story. The Cabal are invading, we meet Gaul, and spoiler alert, we lose. Destiny 2’s plot is looking to be stron...[Read More]

We taste tested 6 disgusting video game recipes

After the last two times I ate fictional foods online, I swore I would stop punishing my body with TV trash. And I meant it. Which is exactly why I moved on to video games. Like a trained warrior, I summoned the most insane concoctions from video games that I could think of. Battle ready, I rolled up my sleeves, opened my beak, and conquered these six video game food monsters. Join me and see if I...[Read More]

Destiny 2’s beta should appeal to new fans

I’ll be the first to admit that the original Destiny left me with a resounding meh. Personally, I found the game to fall flat in terms of narrative and gameplay, but this was back in the early days of release. To say the least I was hesitant going into the Destiny 2 early access beta – which is now live on PlayStation 4 and will be live on Xbox One tomorrow ahead of the open console be...[Read More]
