Prepare for more realistic titans: We talk A.O.T. 2 with game producer Hisashi Koinuma

Having personally adored the first Attack on Titan hack and slash game – you can read my review here – I’m looking forward to swinging around slashing giant idiots on the back of the neck in Attack on Titan 2. Gearing up for launch we discussed the upcoming game with Attack on Titan 2‘s producer, Hisashi Koinuma, who has worked with Koei Tecmo as a director and producer on ...[Read More]

Battlefront II was actually great for games

In a year with new and innovative games like Breath of the Wild and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the game that had the best impact on the video game industry in 2017 was Battlefront II. Prior to EA and DICE’s disastrous launch, there was no tangible evidence to show that microtransactions had a significant impact on sales. Sure, you and a few friends might have decided to boycott a game in prote...[Read More]

Sea of Thieves lets you weaponize vomit

Forget cutlasses, cannons and pistols – it’s all about buckets of vomit when it comes to pirate warfare. Over the past few days I’ve been sailing around the world of Sea of Thieves, throwing stomach pulp on people. I’ll break this majestic move down for you; if you smash back a couple tankards of grog in Sea of Thieves you’ll start to go a bit woozy. Eventually after getting some...[Read More]

Garbage games of 2017

LoadScreen’s Editors Charlie and Tom have already given you their nice lists from 2017, now it’s time for the naughty lists. Picking the most garbage aspect of 2017 isn’t a small task, the year was objectively pretty trashy all round. Fortunately (or unfortunately) for us, we spent a lot of the year playing a tonne of games – so with no real joy (okay some joy) we’ve ...[Read More]

Aaron’s top three games of 2017

It’s no surprise that critics everywhere are placing 2017 as one of the best years for video gaming in a very long time. We’ve had some seriously great game releases throughout the year, and when it comes to picking only three of these to top any list, it’s a very, very difficult decision. How do you narrow down so many amazing games to a paltry three out of what could easily be ...[Read More]

Charlie’s top three games of 2017

It’s that wonderful time of year again, where a stream of completely subjective lists flood onto the internet and stir up emotions. Well, rest assured dear friends, this is the only list out there that is 100% objective and based upon hours of scientific research. My opinion on video games I enjoyed this year is a seminal piece, and not in the least an arbitrary list of things that one perso...[Read More]

Tom’s top three games of 2017

Wow, another year has gone by already? I guess I should have noticed due to the mania at the shopping centres and another mediocre Star Wars movie screening in cinemas (don’t @ me). I suppose that means it’s time to make an obligatory Game of the Year list. And for me personally, 2017 is a hard year to pick a top three from because to be honest, there weren’t that many mind blowi...[Read More]

You can harness the power of squid butt in Super Mario Odyssey

We need to talk about Super Mario Odyssey. Specifically we need to talk about how Mario travels around via the raw power of assholes in the game. There’s no pretty way to discuss gaping mollusk buttholes, so let’s jump right in. In the Seaside Kingdom of Super Mario Odyssey you’re tasked with the usual possessing of creatures to solve puzzles and earn Power Moons. One of the creatures at you...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 impressions: Accidental bear grenade – PAX Aus 2017

With moments like being chased by hillbillies on tractors and running through the streets of small-town America blasting bad guys with a revolver, things in Far Cry 5 have changed a lot since the last installment, but they kinda also haven’t changed at all. The setting of rural Montana may be a departure from mountainous wilds and vague islands, but the mechanics and feel of Far Cry 5 could almost...[Read More]

Hands on with Sea of Thieves – PAX Aus 2017

“Land ho!” I called out to my shipmates. There be treasure avast me hearties, and it was up to this guy and a crew of three other scallywags to locate it. (Sidenote: I’m already tired of the pirate speak so we’ll be dropping that now). Personally, it was kind of a cool moment trying out Sea of Thieves at PAX Australia. The open world pirate game was one of the first upcomin...[Read More]

Skyrim VR Fus-Ro-Sucks, but it’s good on Switch – PAX Aus 2017

Skyrim hasn’t been allowed much rest, despite the game’s 2011 release, it will be receiving two new versions at the tail end of this year on PlayStation VR and Nintendo Switch respectively. Making the rounds at PAX Australia this weekend I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to check out both of the upcoming versions and compare them to the hundreds of hours I spent with the base gam...[Read More]

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]
