Plan your character with The Division skill calculator

  This weekend has been a very Division heavy one. An open beta for the game has been running on all platforms showing off what the tense RPG shooter has to offer.  However, certain things are blocked off during beta, such as talents and perks. I’m sure many players will be wondering what these have to offer and whether they will make a huge difference. Well luckily one Reddit user, kno...[Read More]

A few hours with The Division beta

  The Division, Ubisoft’s new third-person apocalypse shooter/MMORPG, is almost upon us as its March 8 release date approaches. However, the game’s beta test went live a few days ago and I’ve finally had the chance to sit down and have some proper hands on time with it.

Now is the time for Assassin’s Creed: Australia

– Nicholas Payne SINCE Ubisoft Montreal launched Assassin’s Creed in 2007, the series has grown into one of the most dominant gaming franchises in history. Over almost a decade, we’ve seen nine main entries in the series, as well as 12 supplementary titles on PC, handheld and iOS devices. The small-scale Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India just dropped to mediocre reviews, and it currently ha...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed “Empire” to allegedly skip 2016, be set in Egypt

  As it has been an annualised franchise since the release of Assassin’s Creed 2 in 2009, reports that there will be a new Assassin’s game coming out are hardly surprising. According to sources speaking to Kotaku this morning, the next game in the series is codenamed “Empire” and might be set in ancient Egypt, with a possibility of sequels expanding to ancient Rome and...[Read More]

Far Cry Primal gameplay video… and maybe dinosaurs?

Rainbow 6: Siege review: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!

– Aaron Birch Bringing a classic franchise back to life for both existing and new audiences is never going to be an easy challenge, especially one that’s as unique and revolutionary as Rainbow 6. First released on PC back in 1998, Rainbow Six has always been about tactical realism. A single bullet can kill, and one wrong move can lead to mission failure. The series has also thrust co-o...[Read More]

Rainbow Six: Siege beta impressions – hope you’re in for the long haul…

  Rainbow Six: Siege is a game that one day I think I will have a lot of fun with. But in order to do that I’m going to have to go through an incredibly arduous journey of failure and I just don’t know if I have it in me. Seriously, even with the amount of time I have for gaming in my schedule, I don’t know if I could commit to essentially training myself in order to have a ...[Read More]

Stack up – the Rainbow Six: Siege open beta begins tomorrow

  Get ready to go full tactical, the Rainbow Six: Siege open beta kicks off tomorrow on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Pretty soon we shall see if we will all learn to get along and work as a team to achieve our objectives or if we will devolve into the squabbling, alleged mother-fornicating mob commonly found in online shooter games. Seriously, the original gameplay reveal for Siege (shown below) fea...[Read More]

Just Dance 2016: As played by a grown man

  Sometimes we get sent a game to review which might not be our cup of tea. That’s okay though, in most instances we can deal with it and play for a few days and come to an objective opinion. When Just Dance 2016 found its way into our hands and then eventually onto my desk I thought not only is this not my cup of tea, it’s so foreign to me it barely qualifies as tea at all. IR...[Read More]

The Division gameplay impressions: bring friends…

It’s been a long time coming, but Ubisoft’s tactical third-person shooter The Division is close to launching early next year. With the release not so far away, I was finally able to get my hands on the game at PAX Australia and get an idea of how it’s going to pan out. What did I learn? Clarity will be key. The brief demo took place in the eerily quiet, snowy city-scape featured ...[Read More]
