The Division: The roguest rogue you’ll ever see

Updated to include the original source.  Admittedly I have lost part of my soul and a large chunk of my life to The Division. Over 40 hours in I’m still finding new ways for the Dark Zone to terrify me, but this video below takes the cake. The video is from YouTuber Quasi sight, who we can assume is the coldest agent to have ever lived… by my count they killed nine agents and ultimatel...[Read More]

Werewolves Within brings the classic lie to your friends simulator to VR

For those who have never played it, Werewolves is an amazingly dark card game where you get to kill your friends in their sleep and then lie to their face about it. It’s a great way to never trust those closest to you again, having people you’ve known for over 10 years look you straight in the eye and lie without remorse is unsettlingly amazing. Well, good news! Now you can destroy friendships in ...[Read More]

As predicted, the unit will cost the same as the PS4 did at launch, AUD$549.95 (US$399). It is due to launch in October 2016. The $549.95 package includes the PSVR headest (...[Read More]

Game Archive: Yes you too can relive the adventure of getting dysentery

– Karolina Firman Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiago, The Oregon Trail, and Castle of Dr Brain. What do these games have in common besides a ton of nostalgia, (admittedly) not the best graphics and cheesy background music? Well I’ll tell you, they’re all part of a game archive saved by the same people who make the Wayback Machine, which is a digital archive of old web pages. This organisation...[Read More]

Xbox planning to support cross network multiplayer, including PS4

  It sounds almost too good to be true, and in a way it kind of is. In a post today on the Xbox Wire, ID@Xbox program director Chris Charla said that in addition to supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10, Microsoft will allow developers to implement cross-network play as well. This means Microsoft are open to allowing Xbox One and Windows 10 players to play with/agains...[Read More]

Man and AI robot puts us to shame in Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

  Well this is embarrassing. You might remember the game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes from when Charlie and I played it last year. For those of you who don’t, it’s a game in which two or more players attempt to disarm a bomb where only one of them has access to the bomb and the others have the diffusing manual. Suffice it to say it gets incredibly stressful as the clock counts...[Read More]

Blood Alloy: Reborn review: a tease of things to come

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Blood Alloy: Reborn sure travelled a rocky road to release. Developed by Suppressive Fire Games, it began in 2013 as a Kickstarter for a much larger project called Blood Alloy that failed to raise the required funds, but the positive reception of its fast-paced, 2D retro combat system inspired the team to continue developing it. Several years later, the...[Read More]

Gunscape review: DIY retro shooter

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Gunscape may have caught your attention in recent times, it’s been presented as a customisable retro shooter. The PS4, Xbox One and PC game provides all the elements that are reminiscent of classic FPS titles such as Doom and Wolfenstein, and leaves them at the player’s disposal to create their own maps. Players can then try out other people...[Read More]

PlayStation to salvage Lionhead Studios?

  It was a sad day across Albion when Microsoft announced Lionhead Studios was most likely going to close down. The announcement that sounded the death knell for the beloved creators of Fable and Black & White also spelled out the demise of Fable Legends, a game that had been in production since 2012. Well maybe all is not lost for the team at Lionhead Studios, because Sony are swooping i...[Read More]

Hitman’s physical release date shifts to 2017

  The Paris introductory episode for the new Hitman game is out now, marking the first of the six episode digital release plan announced two months ago. Following that announcement, the question of when to expect the complete package to come out in retail stores has been on many players’ lips. Square Enix had said a physical retail release of the game was aiming to come out later in 201...[Read More]

The Division: Have you killed Alex?

  I’ve spent approximately all of the hours playing The Division since it came out on Tuesday, and during that time I must have killed Alex about 2,000 times. Yes, The Division has its very own “arrow to the knee” in the sense that enemy AI will repeatedly shout out “oh no, they killed Alex” during battles. This raises the question whether the majority of enemies...[Read More]

DOOM closed beta begins April 1 in Australia

  Still got your copy of Wolfenstein The New Order kicking around from 2014? If not, you better hope you activated the serial number on the slip inside the case before you lost it/sold it off because redeeming it is how players gain access to the upcoming closed beta test of DOOM. That’s right, today Bethesda announced that the DOOM multiplayer beta advertised on copies of The New Order...[Read More]
