EA removes microtranctions from Battlefront 2 (temporarily) following backlash

Holy shit. EA just removed the microtransactions from Battlefront 2. Holy. Shit. Following months of rage from the gaming community that the ability to spam buy loot boxes in Battlefront 2 would lead to a pay-to-win scenario of unfair advantages; following EA removing top tier gear from said loot boxes; and following EA’s defence of the game’s economy becoming the most down voted comme...[Read More]

Boomerang Fu is the awesome brawler you haven’t heard of yet – PAX Aus 2017

Were it not for the fact I wanted to catch up with an old friend, I might have missed my chance to check out Boomerang Fu. The game’s display at PAX Aus this past weekend was to the side of a much larger booth on the PAX Rising floor, with one demo station set up. With the intense mania of the expo hall, and the indie floor in general, it would have been easy to overlook. But the game’...[Read More]

Stifled is a horror game where your own screams could be your doom – PAX Aus 2017

If you’re like me and often let out a yelp or two when startled in horror games, then Stifled is hoping to be your worst nightmare. Mainly because its monsters are actively listening out for your in-real-life squeals. The indie horror title, developed by Singapore-based studio Gattai Games, is designed around the player seeing via echolocation, similar to what was seen earlier this year in P...[Read More]

One year on, VR gun culture satire The American Dream has expanded its scope – PAX Aus 2017

Melbourne developer Samurai Punk’s The American Dream was easily my highlight of PAX Aus 2016. The VR title sets out with the goal to have players perform every action in the game by way of shooting guns, except what you would normally do with a gun in a video game, which is shoot someone.  It’s an intriguing concept, one that last year had me being fed soup as a child via the tip of a...[Read More]

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]

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]

Playing as a naughty goose is everything we ever wanted

Until recently, I wasn’t even aware that all I want in life is a game about an asshole goose. Well, thanks to Australian devs House House – who previously brought us the bizarrely brilliant Push Me Pull You – you can soon experience the joys of being a horrible goose. The as of yet untitled goose game was teased in a short video yesterday: Yeah, GG, we already know our game of th...[Read More]

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.
