Cosplayers at conventions are some of the most dedicated, passionate and friendliest humans you can come across. I can’t help being in awe of them and their costumes. Hugely dedicated to their franchise favourites and often spending hours, days and weeks on their projects. They sculpt, sew, paint and build their costumes and props with […]
Day one of PAX is more than halfway done. If you’ve been in attendance since the doors opened you’ve likely not taken a proper break. It’s understandable, there’s a tonne of great stuff to see and do at PAX Aus. One thing you definitely should take time to check out is both interesting and a […]
The SNES Mini has been out for a week now. Some of you were lucky enough to get one. Some of you didn’t want one and some of you aren’t really fussed one way or another. Whatever your opinion on it, one thing’s for sure; the collection of games is incredible. Being able to have […]
This month is set to be one of the best and busiest (and most expensive) in video gaming in recent years. October alone has at least 10 AAA console titles and two handheld titles releasing. We’ve gone back to look at previous years’ releases and none of them come close. In 2016 there were six […]
Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Spectres follows on from last year’s Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls. Think of it like the third version of a Pokémon; e.g. Yellow, Crystal, Emerald. Psychic Spectres is the ultimate version of Yo-Kai Watch 2 and adds some new content that makes it worthwhile though your mileage will vary. Having only received the code for Psychic Spectres a day prior […]
Rockstar finally released a new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 overnight and it created plenty of new questions. It told us who we were playing as, when Red Ded Redemption 2 is set and just how good the graphics will be, but other details remain unknown or simply theories. After watching the trailer for the 20th time today […]
Sexuality isn’t a choice. At least, in the real world. But when it comes to role-playing-games players are typically given an amount of agency over their character. This occasionally extends to who their character would prefer to have a romantic dalliance with. In the case of Life Is Strange: Before the Storm, players are invited […]
Destiny 2 has been out for a week now and Guardians are already levelling up to impressive levels. At PowerUp! we have all been playing. Some of us are ragged veterans of the original. Others, like me, gave up and only returned when “The Taken King” was released. Some others are brand new to Destiny […]
If Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was an experiment by Naughty Dog and Sony, consider it a rousing success. What was originally meant as DLC for Uncharted 4, Lost Legacy has become so much more. With Nathan Drake’s story coming to a conclusion — an incredibly satisfying one at that — at the end of Uncharted 4, it wasn’t clear […]
GG EZ is Australia’s first dedicated esports bar and it opens tomorrow. Months of work by the team behind the bar are about to pay off when doors open to the public at 5pm. As it’s opening night, a special celebration will be held until late and the first 300 people through the door will […]
