Games that hopefully won’t be trash in 2017

About this time last year we did a list of games we were hyped for in the coming year. Considering No Man’s Sky  headed my list I’ve decided to change the format around slightly to games that I’m hoping won’t be garbage fires this year, because fuck hype. Also, I’m going to be repeating a couple entries in here because they didn’t come out in 2016 as expected, b...[Read More]

The saga I went through to play Modern Warfare Remastered

And so, with the waning of today’s sun, 2016 draws to a close. A year that took many beloved celebrities and where politics suddenly became everyone’s favourite topic both on and offline, what with Brexit and Trump. Yeah, from a societal and political standpoint, 2016 was a confederate flag emblazoned dumpster fire. But aside from happily seeing the back of a below average year, the ap...[Read More]

Garbage games of 2016

Charlie and Tom have given you their highlights of 2016, now it’s time to look over the lowest of the lowlights. Unlike last year, we thought we’d collaborate on this list so that it doesn’t get too subjective based on one person’s tastes. Also it’s worth noting, a few games on here we genuinely enjoyed parts of, but controversy has left them on the scrap heap of the ...[Read More]

Tom’s top three games of 2016

Man, 2016 was garbage. Lots of great famous people died, the UK shat the bed politically, the US immensely shat the bed politically, and my home Australia certainly engaged in its fair share of governmental diarrhoea (looking at you, the 77 people who gave Malcolm Roberts a reason to be in the news). But when it comes to video games, 2016 was actually pretty good, so good in fact that I was really...[Read More]

The Endless Lake guy needs to be more responsible around water

If you couldn’t swim would you run full pelt down a pier full of holes? No, you wouldn’t. Facebook recently launched arcade games via messenger, which for the most part are innocent rehashes of classic games like Pacman, until you get to Endless Lake and discover a blatant disregard for basic water safety. In the game you have to inform an arrogant idiot that his inevitable death by dr...[Read More]

How to unlock the true ending and solve the dummy finger puzzle in Resident Evil 7’s midnight update demo

In case you weren’t aware, Capcom recently updated their demo of Resident Evil 7 on the PlayStation 4 with the “midnight” version. The previous update to this demo, the “twilight” version, updated the Baker house for the player to explore further, and included a new ending. This version of the demo, however, provides not only a “true” ending to the experience, but also a solution to the infamous d...[Read More]

There are some pretty great The Last of Us Part II plot theories

Of course The Last of Us Part II being announced was always going to be a big deal, but what we perhaps didn’t anticipate is how the plot would be introduced to us. And in typical trailer fashion not too much was hinted at in the moody reveal last weekend. We were reintroduced to Ellie and Joel, with heavy hints of revenge and a sing song, but why is Ellie so worked up? Why didn’t we s...[Read More]

Pokémon Sun and Moon: An incredibly detailed guide to choosing your starter

With the beginning of every new generation of Pokémon game, there is an inevitable question on the tips of everyone’s tongues: which starter Pokémon is the best? Well aren’t you lucky I spent 600+ hours playing Pokémon X, Y, OR & AS in anticipation of this very moment. Brace yourselves for an incredibly thorough, in-depth, deep scientific dissection using rather uncomfortably long mathematical...[Read More]

Final War is the card game you’ve been waiting for

Considering tabletop games don’t have load screens, we haven’t spent all that much time writing about them, but that’s about to change. After playing Final War at PAX Aus this year, I realised a profound truth… I fucking adore playing games face to face, as you can see the emotions in your friend’s eyes as you obliterate them. Not that I won the match of Final War I p...[Read More]

A Township Tale shows a promising future for VR

We’ve spoken before about skepticism for VR… and how it almost made me yak hard. Despite potential splash zones being established, I braved the VR demo of A Township Tale at PAX Aus, and I’m glad I did. Even extremely early into development, the game shows VR can be more than a series of one off experiences. Developed by Alta, a VR focused dev team from Sydney, the version of A T...[Read More]

I just played Moirai on Steam, and…  

Well, I can’t say I was expecting that. Perusing free games on Steam and finding the gems has become something of a specialty of mine over the years. I’ve played Cry of Fear (and lasted all of five minutes), Path of Exile is still sitting on my desktop waiting to be played and appreciated, and yesterday I came across a short horror game called Moirai. Reading up on it, I was intrigued by the fact ...[Read More]

Titanfall 2 Titan Tips – Mechs maketh the man

Previously we looked at the Pilot; now we move onto the titular Titans. First, let’s start with general ways to earn your Titan. The most straightforward way to earn build time is killing minions, pilots, and even just damaging Titans. Capturing objectives and amping points in Amped Hardpoint matches will also help to build your Titan faster, so PTFO. The most neglected method, but also the fastes...[Read More]
