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]

Metal Gear Survive is coming February next year

Hey guys, remember Metal Gear Survive, the co-op zombie survival spin-off from 2015’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain? You know, the one where a bunch of soldiers are transported through a wormhole to another dimension to fight zombies with crystals for heads? No? Well, according to the game’s Twitter account you don’t have long to wait to check it out, because it’s la...[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]

Great news for Switch fans, Bethesda have announced they will be releasing DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on the Nintendo Switch. Joining Skyrim on Nintendo’s portable console, DOOM will be available during the holiday season this year, and Wolfenstein will be available at some point next year – despite coming out on PC and console October 27th. Skyrim also has a release dat...[Read More]

Knack 2 accidentally available for free on Aussie PSN Store

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. We tested it ourselves, and once you complete your cart transaction of zero dollars, a download of the full 35gb of Knack 2 begins, so it’s definitely not the demo. No word from So...[Read More]

Overwatch hero updates: Mercy won’t be dishing out team revives and D.Va gets a new ability

The sheer crushing disappointment of seeing Mercy revive an entire team won’t be around much longer. In a hero balance update that is now live on the PTR, Mercy has a new ultimate, and her revive ability is now a slow to regenerate secondary that can only resurrect one teammate at a time. You can see lead designer Jeff Kaplan discuss the changes in the video below: Mercy’s new ultimate...[Read More]

Xbox Gamescom roundup: New consoles, trailers and JURASSIC PARK

Gamescom 2017 doesn’t officially start for a couple more days, but that doesn’t mean the big publishers aren’t going to start dropping announcements. First cab off the rank is Xbox, bringing with them a bunch of new trailers for already announced games, some Xbox One console announcements, and a trailer for a whole new game that I bet you can’t guess what it is. So, here we...[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]

Titanfall 2 gets its best free DLC and its worst microtransactions

This past week, Titanfall 2 dropped its latest free content update in the form of ‘Frontier Shield,’ adding two new maps, camos, balance changes, and best of all, the co-op gametype, Frontier Defense. The first new map is ‘Township’, an urban style arena for the ‘Live Fire’ gametype. I had my doubts about this map, due to all the potential camping spots, but all reports say that it’s one of the be...[Read More]
