  PC players of Mortal Kombat X won’t receive any of the upcoming downloadable content for the game according to a forum post from developer NetherRealm Studios. Earlier this week Warner Bros, MKX‘s publisher, announced an edition of the game called Mortal Kombat XL, which includes both DLC Kombat Packs and is slated for release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One on March 1. The second...[Read More]

  It’s just over a month before we get our hands on Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal, the franchise’s first gallivant into the prehistoric age. The open world action game, which may or may not also contain dinosaurs, revolves around a caveman searching for the remaining members of his decimated tribe, encountering other warring tribes and many prehistoric beasts along the way.

Nintendo NX survey hints at possible directions for the console

  Rumours about the Nintendo NX, their follow up to the Wii U, have been flying around for the past year or so; such as the possibility the system will be some kind of hybrid between a home console and a portable one. The official word from Nintendo’s president, Tatsumi Kimishima, is that details on the NX will be coming later in 2016, but a recently uncovered market research survey may...[Read More]

The Bug Butcher: One of the best 2D indie shooters you’ll play

  The Bug Butcher is one of those indie games that you might not pay attention to. On the surface it sounds like so many other games, you play as a masked character tasked with clearing out waves of aliens with a range of laser based weapons. Doesn’t exactly sound groundbreaking, does it? However once you start playing The Bug Butcher, you realise that the devs at Awfully Nice Studios h...[Read More]

Friday the 13th: The Game brings logic to horror

  Have you ever been watching a horror film and wondered why nobody has whipped out their phone and called the police? Even if it’s set in a pre-mobile era, you think there would be a phone relatively near the character and their first reaction might be, “hey, those guys that protect and serve us might be able to serve me through protection.” Well luckily for those who are f...[Read More]

Let’s talk CleverPet

  Last week we ran a story on the CleverPet Hub, which is essentially a games console for dogs. Sounds cool right? Well as a dog obsessed person working in an industry that deals with electronic entertainment, I certainly thought so. Wanting to know a little bit more about the system I got in touch with CleverPet founder and CEO Leo Trottier to see if he could help fulfil my dog gaming fantas...[Read More]

Fast Racing Neo review

– Stefan Bradley Reviewed on: Wii U Cue the comparisons to Nintendo’s F-Zero franchise, as well as Sony’s WipEout. Like those two series, Fast Racing Neo is all about futuristic vehicles racing at extreme speeds to a soundtrack fusing rock and electronic music. F-Zero hasn’t seen a new game since F-Zero Climax on the GBA, but most of us fondly remember F-Zero GX as the peak...[Read More]

Fan remake of Metal Gear Solid in Unreal Engine 4 trailer drops

  Fan remakes of classic games have always had an iffy track record, with some going on to be commercially sold products such as Half-Life remake Black Mesa and others being hit with the ban hammer from the original rights holders, effectively destroying years of work. Today, the first proper trailer for an Unreal Engine 4 remake of Metal Gear Solid, titled Shadow Moses, dropped on YouTube, a...[Read More]

Project Zero 2: Wii Edition – why do I do this to myself?!

Welcome to “January Back Catalogue”, where we’re taking advantage of this quiet release month by catching up on all the games we’ve been meaning to play. -Stefan Bradley Project Zero 2: Wii Edition is a remake of the Playstation 2 classic Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly, which in the US had a more meaningful title of Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly. Don’t let the Wii Edition subtitle fool...[Read More]

Now is the time for Assassin’s Creed: Australia

– Nicholas Payne SINCE Ubisoft Montreal launched Assassin’s Creed in 2007, the series has grown into one of the most dominant gaming franchises in history. Over almost a decade, we’ve seen nine main entries in the series, as well as 12 supplementary titles on PC, handheld and iOS devices. The small-scale Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India just dropped to mediocre reviews, and it currently ha...[Read More]

My journey to play the new DOOM level

  Though we look back on the classic PC games of yore with our rose tinted glasses, we can’t deny the fiddly-ness of them sucked. Hey, don’t get me wrong: I loved my childhood playing the likes of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, The Descent and Wolfenstein 3D, but even I can admit dealing with command lines or modding anything was a pain in the butt. The simplification of runn...[Read More]

Pocket Mortys review: Wubalubadubdub

  We usually don’t cover mobile games, and for good reason, in general they are terrible. When apps first became a thing with the release of smart phones there was a brief golden age of free content that wasn’t riddled with ads, but now mobile releases have been tarnished with ungodly amounts of microtransactions and clones of Flappy Bird. Don’t get me wrong, there have been...[Read More]
