ARK: Survival Evolved review: The tale of Snek

Reviewed on PC, copy supplied by publisher.  Before we get started I want to address the fact that this review may be unusual, but ARK is an unusual game. So, instead of a conventional piece, you can read about my attempts to make a pair of pants for a strangely proportioned woman. Coming into the world in a fit of pain – trapped underneath floorboards and confused – Snek didn’t ...[Read More]

Trees will mess you up in first person Battlegrounds servers

FPP servers are now available in Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds for NA, EU and AS regions. The update allows players to battle it out only in first-person mode, which makes the already sweat inducing game that much more terrifying. I decided to jump into a solo round and try my hand at the new mode, and luckily for me, my first FPP round would also be in the rain, making it that much more te...[Read More]

Bayonetta’s PC port releases On Steam

Get ready to let your hair out: following the April Fool’s release of 8-Bit Bayonetta, the complete, unadulterated and original Bayonetta is now available on Steam for US$20 (just under AU$28). Buying now will also net you some bonus digital content for free. Whilst the PC port doesn’t seem to offer anything in the way of new content, it looks like it will be the definitive version of the game, su...[Read More]

Gee, “1-2-Swift” sure looks like another game I know…

If you are a huge Nintendo fan who also happened to be perusing Steam today and spotted a game called 1-2-Swift on the new release list, you could be forgiven for thinking the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive 1-2 Switch had both come out a full month early and also been ported over to PC. Actually no, I take that back. I won’t forgive you for that because that idea is completely ridiculous...[Read More]

People really liked Euro Truck Simulator 2 in the Steam Awards

OK, they also liked Grand Theft Auto V, but that hardly makes for a surprising headline. Valve recently published the results of the first ever Steam Awards, where Steam users could nominate and vote for games to win trophies in some unconventional categories. The categories range from unsurprising things like the “Test Of Time” and “Just 5 More Minutes” awards, to weirder ...[Read More]

The saga I went through to play Modern Warfare Remastered

And so, with the waning of today’s sun, 2016 draws to a close. A year that took many beloved celebrities and where politics suddenly became everyone’s favourite topic both on and offline, what with Brexit and Trump. Yeah, from a societal and political standpoint, 2016 was a confederate flag emblazoned dumpster fire. But aside from happily seeing the back of a below average year, the ap...[Read More]

Age of Empires II is getting an expansion next week

Party like it’s 1999, because Age of Empires II, is getting an expansion, and holy shit… Age of Empires II is 17 years old now. The update entitled Rise of the Rajas will introduce four new civilisations to the 2013 Age of Empires HD re-release, (Burma, Khmer, Malay and Vietnam), new units, new environments and four fully voiced campaigns. Not bad all in all for a game that came out th...[Read More]

I just played Moirai on Steam, and…  

Well, I can’t say I was expecting that. Perusing free games on Steam and finding the gems has become something of a specialty of mine over the years. I’ve played Cry of Fear (and lasted all of five minutes), Path of Exile is still sitting on my desktop waiting to be played and appreciated, and yesterday I came across a short horror game called Moirai. Reading up on it, I was intrigued by the fact ...[Read More]

Digital Homicide are making it rain lawsuits

When news struck that Digital Homicide were suing Jim Sterling back in March, those who followed the feud between the YouTuber and the game devs weren’t too surprised. The relationship between the two had been hostile for a long time, since Sterling called them out on making asset flip games, and they reacted, by criticising Sterling for turning gamers against them. For those wanting backgro...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky players are getting refunds regardless of time played

It is safe to say that No Man’s Sky has disappointed a lot of people. Players have suffered many technical woes on both the Playstation 4 and PC versions. A long list of features hinted at/outright confirmed by developer Hello Games prior to launch were missing from the game. And even despite all that, the game that was shipped was fairly disappointing in its ow...[Read More]

Starladder i-League Starseries Season 2: Na’Vi is finally back

– Francesco Puglisi The last premiere tournament of the season before The International 6 just drew to an end with a banging upset: Na’Vi is back and they are not fooling around. For the ones who have not being following the Dota 2 pro scene too closely, Na’Vi is definitely one of the most famous and cheered for teams in the world. The Ukrainian squad grew to fame in 2011, when they won the ...[Read More]

Murder, psychosis and starvation: A tale of RimWorld brutality

RimWorld is a recent Steam Early Access success story. The sci-fi colony sim puts players in control of a group of crash landed survivors on an alien world, from there your goals are to build shelter, gather food and advance your technology to the point you can send your colonists back into space. It’s kind of like The Sims, but everything hates you. I’ve sunk around seven hours into t...[Read More]
