It’s taken me a long time to get through Stifled. Even though it’s a relatively short game, I had to play it in short bursts. There are two reasons why. Firstly, it is just way too scary. Secondly, playing games in VR makes me feel beyond queasy. Which sucks, because that’s the best way to play Stifled. […]
DOOM for Nintendo Switch is a revelation. It’s important not just because it gives Switch owners a hardcore shooter to play. It also demonstrates what the Switch is capable of. While the Switch version of DOOM lags noticeably behind the others in terms of performance, the experience is much the same. Concessions have been made in […]
Recently at PAX Melbourne, I had a chance to talk to Vince LaDuca from Linksys. He’s the mastermind behind the new Linksys gaming router. It’s a product I was rather curious about, considering my previous experiences with other so-called gaming routers. It’s probably obvious I’ve had average experiences. Thankfully Vince is super passionate about the product. […]
There’s a reason Bethesda has released and re-released Skyrim so many times. It’s a phenomenal video game. Regardless of the platform you’re playing it on, Skyrim is guaranteed to be a good time. It’s no wonder then that when Nintendo unveiled the Switch early last year and included footage of Skyrim fans went berserk. Being able to play Skyrim, […]
Sitting down to write this Call of Duty WWII review I realised a few things. Call of Duty WWII was the first game in the series for a long time that I had even a minute amount of interest in. It was also the only one I’d bothered to play the beta for. Call of Duty WWII […]
Let me just preface this Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus review. This game does not fuck around.Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a direct continuation of the 2014 title Wolfenstein: The New Order. And what a continuation it is. Our hero, BJ Blazkowicz continues to kick those Nazis ‘Reich’ up the ass. Though marketing of the […]
When Nintendo announced Hyrule Warriors for Wii U fans went a little bit nuts. It sold well enough to get a port to 3DS and showed fans that Nintendo was willing to work with 3rd parties. Hoping to catch lightning in a bottle twice, Nintendo has once again partnered with Team Ninja and Omega Force. Only […]
Ubisoft was out in force at PAX. Boasting hands-on experiences with upcoming titles like Assassins Creed: Origins, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and The Crew 2. Tthe main attraction was the Far Cry 5 preview though. Offering just a pinch of time with the game queues were long but oh so worth it. Far Cry 5: On […]
It would be surprising if you hadn’t played or at least heard of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. There have been many titles released over years and all have been fairly successful. Assassins Creed: Origins caught my eye early on. Especially after seeing the changes to gameplay and setting. The prospect of running around in Ancient Egypt […]
The timing of Super Lucky’s Tale’s release isn’t great. Coming to Xbox One a week after Super Mario Odyssey released for Switch means comparisons are bound to be drawn. Unfortunately for Super Lucky’s Tale, it comes off second-best each and every time. There’s nothing overtly wrong with Super Lucky’s Tale. It’s actually an enjoyable game, but it’s vanilla as vanilla can […]
