Whoops, looks like Outlast 2 has been edited after all

I was super shocked and excited to learn this morning that Outlast 2 had been reclassified to R18+ in Australia, both because it was a surprise and also because it marked the second time I’d written a think piece about our classification system’s issues and it being followed by a positive change (the first time being GTA V being slightly reclassified soon after a 2015 article I wrote f...[Read More]

The reason Outlast 2 was refused classification makes sense

As reported by Alex Walker over at Kotaku Australia, who received a detailed explanation of the scene that triggered the refusal...[Read More]

Why I hope the next Resident Evil game is just like RE7

This article contains spoilers for Resident Evil 7. In a previous article of mine I said I believed Resident Evil 4 to be the best game of the longstanding Resident Evil series.

If I was judging it by its standards as a general horror gam...[Read More]

Blizzard tease us with new Overwatch character hype

Overwatch has been one of the most solid multiplayer experiences in a long time, and naturally it has a large following beacuse of this. So it’s not surprising when a new character comes around, Overwatch fans lose their shit. Blizzard have shown a precedent for slowly teasing new characters, like in the Sombra AR debacle.

The Shadow of War trailer isn’t early, it arrived precisely when it meant to

So the Shadow of War trailer dropped today, which probably has nothing to do with the leak from yesterday… The sequel to Shadow of Mordor looks to be much like its predecessor, so stupidly not canon that it’s awesome. The plot follows the continued raging against the machine of Gondorian ranger Talion, who shares his undead body with Elf/Wraith Celebrimbor. This time out it looks like ...[Read More]
