Titanfall 2 to have a single player campaign

  Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen several “online multiplayer only” games be hyped up with innovative ideas, released, played incessantly before suddenly becoming dead in the water. They usually review pretty well because at their core the games are fun, but for various reasons they don’t hold players’ interest for long before another title comes out an...[Read More]

A tale of XCOM 2 brutality

  Over the past 48 hours I’ve been playing a lot of XCOM 2, and considering I’m new to the series, I’ve been absolutely blown away by how brutal it is. XCOM puts you in control of a commander fighting the “government” after a succesful alien invasion. To do so you control soldiers that take on various roles and level up as you progress. If they get blown to bits ...[Read More]

H1Z1 to split into two games

  Earlier today it was announced that the popular early access zombie survival game (is this a new concept?) H1Z1 will be divided and made into two separate titles. The traditional survival mode will become H1Z1: Just Survive and the arguably more popular Battle Royale mode will become H1Z1: King of the Kill.  The games will be sold on Steam for US$19.99 each staring February 17, those who ha...[Read More]

The Uncharted 4 console bundle has been unveiled

  Put your hand up if you like limited edition consoles. Well keep it way up if you also like Uncharted, because a new PlayStation 4 variant has been unveiled showing off the limited edition Uncharted 4 console bundle. The Uncharted 4 console bundle will include a 1TB blue/grey console with a silk screened print of Nathan Drake, a matching Dualshock 4 controller and a copy of Uncharted 4. As ...[Read More]

New DOOM trailer reveals May release date

  Bethesda has just released a new trailer for DOOM that, along with some new gameplay footage, states the game is set for launch for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 13. Much like the gameplay shown at E3 last year, this one is heavy on the metal guitar, the muted colour tones and lots of gory execution moves. Seriously, this video is NSFW. I’m still holding out hope there is an a...[Read More]

In Memoriam: XCOM Enemy Unknown

  With the release of XCOM 2 looming ever closer, it being tomorrow and all, all the traumatic memories I have from its predecessor XCOM: Enemy Unknown have been coming back to mind. As the subject of one of our “In Memorium” posts, Enemy Unknown is very unique thanks to its unpredictable strategy gameplay, permanent team member deaths and the ability to name and characterise your...[Read More]

Gone Home for PS4/XB1 coming this month to Australia

  After a sudden delay due to some undisclosed complications relating to classification, 2013 PC indie hit Gone Home is coming to Playstation 4 and Xbox One in Australia and Europe on February 12. The announcement was made via the game’s official Twitter page over night, also listing other territories, such as New Zealand, Brazil and Russia, that will share the release date. #GoneHome w...[Read More]

Microsoft want to make holographic sports a thing

  The idea of gaming with little holographic figures has been a dream for many since they saw a camp golden mannequin play Dejarik with a Wookie on the Millennium Falcon. Well that dream could be close to reality, not so much for gaming, but with the way we watch sport. Microsoft have teamed up with the NFL to bring you a concept video on what the future of watching footbaaaawwwll could be li...[Read More]

Remembering The War Z

  Like many others I was sucked into a void of disappointment and confusion when The War Z was released back in 2012. Flashy pre-release videos showed something that was well polished, looked great and had a lot of interesting mechanics. As many of you probably know, what was actually released was an abhorrent pile of garbage so foul that Steam withdrew it from their store almost immediately ...[Read More]

The Witness review – a beautiful challenge

Reviewed on: Playstation 4   *Approaches a puzzle* All right, a new puzzle. What have you got for me… *Tests a few possible solutions* OK, no good. What am I missing… *Applies the logic taught by the tutorials for tens of minutes, to no avail* Goddamn it, this is impossible! IT MAKES NO SENSE! STUFF THIS, THIS IS STUPID, PUZZLES ARE STUPID, STUPID STUPID STU- hang on… *Tries...[Read More]

OutDrive – racing game about a car engine keeping a woman alive Greenlit on Steam

  Well, this is one of the weirder things I’ve seen today. Time trials are fairly commonplace when it comes to racing games. You drive a car, there’s a pressuring clock hanging over your head and judging you, you know the drill. How does one make such a scenario more hardcore? Obstacles that reduce score when hit? Less time on the clock? How about the clock represents how many min...[Read More]

XCOM 2 day one mods from Long War team announced

  For some people, developer Firaxis’ 2012 XCOM: Enemy Unknown wasn’t hard enough. “A ruthless game of statistical likelihoods, tough decision making and infantry perma-death? BAH,” they said. “We want enemies that can research and upgrade themselves like we can, and soldiers who tire and weaken after too many consecutive missions! We want our games to MAKE US WE...[Read More]
