Mafia III review: Welcome to the 60s…

This article originally appeared as an impressions piece on October 13, but has since been removed and updated with my final thoughts in this full review here. Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Well, you can all rest assured that Hangar 13’s Mafia III is a lengthy experience because, as I mentioned in my initial impressions, it took me some 10 hours to pass the introduc...[Read More]

WWE 2K17 review: So close, yet so far

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. I’ve been playing the WWE games for years, and as a big fan of the series I, like so many, have also become somewhat disappointed in each year’s promise of new engines and radical new features, only to be given yet another lazy touch up. In fact, after the terribly streamlined and gutted WWE 2K15, I opted to skip last year’s...[Read More]

Mafia III reignites frame rate debate, can’t we all just get along?

So Mafia III came out this past Friday, and due to review copies arriving on the day of launch our review is still a while away. Hey, get off my case; it’s a big game and I’m not made of time. But in the meantime, there was much derision about the PC version shipping with a locked frame rate of 30 frames per second. PC players were understandably pissed off since many of them have prob...[Read More]

BioShock Collection review: Would you kindly?

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. The original BioShock, for me, is one of those games that can never be praised enough. Although at heart it hasn’t actually done anything radically new, being as it is a spiritual successor to the simply stunning and objectively superior System Shock 1 and 2, it took the core ideas of the sci-fi series and twisted it into one of them mo...[Read More]

Mafia III post-launch DLC will have you hunting a Satanic cult

Mafia III is just a month away from its October 7 release date, just one more month before that sweet, sweet soundtrack will be playing in our ears. And at PAX West this weekend publisher 2K Games took the opportunity to announce details of Mafia III’s post-launch DLC, so there’ll probably be more classic 60’s tunes where that came from. Just quickly, there’s going to be a ...[Read More]

Battleborn review: Take a shot at MOBAs

Reviewed on PC, also available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. With all the elements of a 90s Saturday morning cartoon, Battleborn is a colourful game filled with distinct heroes, snidey villains and vibrant sci-fi settings. The blend of FPS and MOBA elements makes for an interesting game and a fun one at that, but it’s still a title that suffers from flaws. From the get go Battleborn catches...[Read More]

Stephen Curry is so good in real life he has to be a cheat character in NBA 2k16

  I want to preface this piece of news by saying I have little to no knowledge of sports, especially basketball. And I don’t say that to pre-empt some kind of ignorance on my part, more that this piece of news regarding NBA 2k16 and Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry so hilarious that even a scrawny physical activity shun-er like me is interested. The specifics of the situa...[Read More]

XCOM 2 review: Unfairly good

Reviewed on: PC There will be few moments in your life when you’ll be required to make decisions as huge, and under the same amounts of pressure, as ones you’ll make when playing XCOM 2. Will you take the 50/50 shot to kill an enemy pinning down a team mate, hold your ground and only fire defensively or relocate to a better position but also expose your flank? Could another team mate b...[Read More]

The most ‘Strayan things in the most ‘Strayan game

  So it’s Australia Day; for some a day where drunk idiots don flag-capes and start fights, others a day to mourn the terrible atrocities on which the day is the anniversary, and the rest stay out of it and use the day off to have a nice BBQ and listen to Triple J’s Hottest 100 Countdown. Regardless of where you fit into those three groups, for all of them it is the day to acknowl...[Read More]
