MGS wormholes, becoming Batman & Resident Evil NOPE – the trailers of Gamescom 2016

Gamescom 2016 is well underway, and we all know what that means: TRAILERS. Yes, much like June’s E3, the arrival of Gamescom means the internet doth overfloweth with more video game trailers than you can poke a sceptical stick at. I for one love me a good trailer, despite being fully aware that they’re often not representative of the final product and designed to generate hype. But oft...[Read More]

Gear review: KontrolFreek CQC Destiny edition

Reviewed on: PS4. Gear supplied by manufacturer. So I’ve spoken before about how much I froth over controller augmentation. It’s my guilty pleasure, and it’s something that has begun to spiral out of control. I now own more PS4 thumbsticks than I thought ever possible. And yes, I do use them all on the regular, they’re my hand’s tiny plastic children. On my last ravin...[Read More]

When No Man’s Sky turns against you

I still can’t decide if I like No Man’s Sky. There’s so much I don’t like about it, like how ship/spacesuit upgrades take away from storage space, and yet I’m still compelled to continue playing it. On the whole, I’m enjoying hopping from procedurally generated world to procedurally generated world, having a gander at the weird creatures and landscapes and then ...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky is a hoarder’s nightmare

So No Man’s Sky is finally out, and we can finally see what you actually do in the game and it pretty much boils down to difficult hoarding. So far I’ve had mixed feelings about it, and to be clear this isn’t a review, just an ode to my fellow hoarders and OCD riddled gamers. It turns out that once we manage to push out into the universe and discover alien planets, most of what we will be doing is...[Read More]

The PlayStation Neo could be revealed this September

The existence of Neo was originally rumoured back in March, with confirmation comi...[Read More]

Nick Xenophon fires a misguided shell at Mario Kart

After shocking some gamers by claiming certain FPS games should be classified as a form of gambling, Australian Senator Nick Xenophon is at it again, this time setting his sights on Mario Kart, and the issue he has isn’t even slightly comprehensive.  The beef with Mario arose following Xenophons’ statements against FPS games, after which South Australia’s Consumer and Business Services...[Read More]

Batman: A Telltale Game Series episode 1 – come on, it’s BATMAN!

The DC Cinematic Universe might be flapping about like a fish out of water right now, but it’s good to know that the Dark Knight himself can still spin a good yarn. In fact, it’s not just the Caped Crusader giving us a compelling narrative, but also his time out of the suit as Bruce Wayne dealing with problems of politics and his family legacy. Honestly, I don’t know what else we...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky pre-launch patch increases galaxy sizes tenfold

If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, you’ll know that everyone is excited for the much anticipated No Man’s Sky to be in our hands come Wednesday (Australian time).
