Freedom in linear gaming: Teens React completes The Last of Us

  Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, as I’ve written before, is a masterpiece. At least, that’s my subjective opinion. Definitely the best game of the past 17 years (those of you counting at home will realise this is because Metal Gear Solid came out in 1998). Well, earlier this week the YouTube series “Teens React” concluded their nine month long saga of playing thro...[Read More]

A glimpse of our woeful Star Wars Battlefront skills

And don’t worry, credits will do fine. Our review is on its way, but we just thought we̵...[Read More]

Those indie games you might have missed: Downwell

– Simon Vallenet I’m just sitting on a bench under a tree, looking up to the stars in the dark sky, wondering what could possibly be out there. My finger presses the right arrow on my keyboard; suddenly I’m not sitting anymore. I’m walking towards what seems to be a big  gloomy well. I guess my time to watch the night sky is over. The moon is there, enlightening me and the first few bricks o...[Read More]

Get Req’d After racking up your points in Warzone Assault you might be itching to grab a new Gold Req Pack.

Ocarina of Time: Spirited tracks

– Nicholas Payne Music has always been an integral part of the Legend of Zelda series, thanks to the work of Nintendo composer Koji Kondo, who lent his genius to Link’s first foray in 1986. But it wasn’t until the fifth entry in Nintendo’s puzzle-solving tunic simulator when gamers were given the power to create and play tunes of their very own. For many players, 1998’s The Legend of Zelda: ...[Read More]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed

  Games getting delayed is never fun. You want a particular title, know exactly when you’re going to get it and then BOOM, there’s another couple months added to your wait. No matter how justified the reasons given for the delay are, it just hurts. So bad news for everyone looking forward to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided: its release date has been pushed from February to August 23, 201...[Read More]

Fallout 4 review: say goodbye to life for a while

Reviewed on: PC Fallout 4 is a beast of a game. I have spent a better part of the past eight days wandering the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Boston and have barely scratched the surface of everything this game has to offer. As many have come to expect from a Bethesda Game Studios title, Fallout 4 features not only an open world story-based game, but one littered with over arching side stories, ra...[Read More]

Star Wars Battlefront: This might be the season pass you’re looking for

  We previously reported on how overpriced the Star Wars Battlefront season pass appeared to be, costing consumers AU$69.99 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and $59.99 on PC through Origin. These prices caused outrage with some fans, and understandably so. Well now that Battlefront has been released we have full details on what the season pass includes. Four expansion packs Over 20 new pieces of...[Read More]

Fallout 4: More wasteland battles

  We’ve previously covered how great it is when you set up massive battles in Fallout 4. Through the magic of modding YouTuber Tyrannicon has continued to pit unfathomable amounts of enemies against each other to witness who comes out on top. In his latest videos you can watch 50 Radscorpions vs. 50 Mirelurks vs. 50 Ghouls:   60 Deathclaws vs 60 Brotherhood of Steel: And last but certai...[Read More]

Pulse: Concept vs. reality

  Pulse is conceptually heavy game where you play as a blind girl named Eva as she explores a fantasy world through sound. Developed by Pixel Pi following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Pulse took the devs several years to make, and as much as I hate to criticise games, it could have used several more. Nothing is wrong with the game’s premise, playing as a blind person and interacti...[Read More]

The Battlefield kills I pull off when no one is watching

  I find I am pretty rubbish at Battlefield 4. OK, maybe not completely rubbish, but despite some 18 months of regular sessions with my squad mates/real ACTUAL friends Adam, Jorge and Lawton, I still often find myself exclaiming that I fired a zillion shots at someone only for them to kill me in a single one. I know the game isn’t broken and doesn’t give enemies an advantage, my a...[Read More]
