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]

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind review: Return to Vvardenfell

I wasn’t overly impressed with the initial release of TES: Online. I found it to be a hollow shell of the license it’s built upon. A plain online MMORPG with an Elder Scrolls skin applied, but missing the heart and soul to go along with it. TES: Online wasn’t a bad game, but I found it could have been any MMO, and taking the Elder Scrolls name away from it wouldn’t have mad...[Read More]

Fallout 4 VR will cost over $100 on Steam in Australia

Coming off the back of Bethesda’s E3 showcase we were feeling pretty good, some cool videos were shown, such as DOOM and Fallout 4 ‘s VR versions. However, the excitement dissipated pretty quickly when we noticed the price tag for Fallout 4 VR on Steam, which is a whopping US$79.95 (AU$106.12). What’s more, there doesn’t seem to be a discount for people who own the base gam...[Read More]

Highlights from the Bethesda showcase – E3 2017

We’re already into the third presentation of E3 this year, and boy has that gone fast. Now it’s Bethesda’s turn to wow us as we look over the highlights from their conference. There weren’t too many shocks, but there were still a few talking points. Skyrim on Switch has Zelda gear As we already knew, Nintendo fans will finally get a shot at Skyrim on the Switch. The port lo...[Read More]

Prey review: Ziggy Stardust and the coffee mugs from mars

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by publisher.  From the get go I want to make it very clear that my experience with Prey has been a very, very mixed bag. There are aspects of it that I adored, and other aspects that were mind numbingly terrible. Sci-fi horror is something that is very much up my alley, with the real measuring stick being story. Something which Prey delivers, but the way it goes abo...[Read More]

Prey speedrun clocks the game in 20 minutes

Speedrunners are crazy, you guys. The act of seeing how quickly one can beat a video game is taken extremely seriously by the speedrunning community. They outline rules for each run, ranging from needing to complete the game 100%, just having to reach the end of the story, or even being limited to certain weapons/items. And then there’s the “anything goes” type of speedrun, where...[Read More]

New Prey trailer is all about battling home appliances

This reboot of Prey is looking weirder and weirder the more I see of it, and I am certainly not complaining. At first I was disappointed that the new Prey wouldn’t be the sequel to the 2006 FPS gem I was hoping for, but seeing it presented as a creepy, existential sci-fi horror shooter quickly wiped those feelings away. Now, this new gameplay trailer for the Arkane Studios developed, Bethesd...[Read More]

Fallout 4 is about to get prettier, and also make your computer weep

Fallout 4 is a pretty darn good looking game. I mean, look how many times my fellow editor Charlie and I posted our collections of screenshots from our time exploring the Boston wasteland. Bethesda have today announced that next week they’re releasing an High-Resolution Texture Pack for Fallout 4 on PC, as well as a PS4 Pro update, that is about to make the game a whole lot prettier, so I sa...[Read More]

Prey reboot is launching in May

After the 10 year long story that was the development and sad cancellation of Prey 2, the reboot by Arkane Studios finally has a release date. The sci-fi shooter in which morphing into a coffee mug is a totally possible method of escaping death is launching for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC May 5 2017. There’s also a new trailer, showing off some pretty nuts gunplay and more of the creepy s...[Read More]

Dishonored 2 review: Look into my eyes…

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. The Thief series is one of my favourites of all time. Up to and including Deadly Shadows, I’ve always found it to be the best overall stealth game around, mixing the immersion of FPS with the inherent tension of trying to remain undetected whilst you move like a ghost through the shadows. The series boasted fantastic level design and so...[Read More]

DOOM soundtrack was composed with Cold War era tech – PAX Aus 2016

Any panel that begins with its host shredding metal riffs on an eight string guitar gets a gold star in my book. I guess it helps if the panelist is Mick Gordon, the Australian composer of the soundtrack for the reboot of DOOM, but any other panellists out there who want to give it a crack will at least get points for trying. I didn’t quite know what to expect going in to the “DOOM: Be...[Read More]
