Hello Neighbor is like Alien: Isolation with a Wallace and Gromit skin. Players step into the shoes of the unnamed protagonist who finds himself moving into a house across the road from the Neighbor. This strange, moustachioed man is hiding a secret and it’s up to you to find out what it is. Played from the first-person perspective, Hello […]
The Winter’s Wake preview starts off a bit oddly. The sentence structure is strangely alluring, almost aware that it has been written in a soothing and descriptive manner. You continue reading on, intrigued by the article and its tone, wanting to see where the paragraph leads you. Your eyes bound along the sentences from word to […]
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’s apt that Stifled is coming out on Halloween. The spookiest day of the year is a perfect fit for the spookiest game of the year. Every element of Stifled is designed to trigger a fear response. The more you fight it, the more you’re going to play right in developer Gattai Games’ hand. Stifled […]
The Polly Woodside in Melbourne was the perfect location for Microsoft to preview Sea of Thieves ahead of PAX Aus. Standing on a tall ship with grog and conversation flowing, I could imagine myself as a swarthy pirate. As I headed below deck, to see the treasure that awaited, I knew that the pirate life was […]
I’ve been fortunate enough to get an early look at Devolver Digital’s upcoming High Hell. Developed by Terri Vellmann and Doseone who between them have worked on a couple of personal favourites of mine; Enter the Gungeon, Gang Beats and Heavy Bullets. High Hell quietly hides an extensive menu with a surprising amount of customisation. It’s […]
Nintendo’s developers are masters of their craft. Truly. I’d spent less than 10-minutes with Super Mario Odyssey when I knew it was going to be one of the best games I’d play this year, maybe of all time. I’m happy to be called hyperbolic right now because I know once everyone else plays what I’ve played, […]
Hyper Universe is a 2D side-scrolling MOBA, just released on Steam’s Early Access program. I’ll address the big elephant in the room straight away. It’s paid early access, with the intent of being F2P on full release. And yes there is a platform to buy in-game items with real world money. The micro transactions, as […]
Yooka-Laylee makes me feel like I’m 15 again. Sitting up way too late, trying to stay quiet so as not to wake up my mum. Playing games on my N64 and laughing at the obvious dick jokes, while the more subtle, adult references fly over my head. I’m taken back in mind and spirit. Waves of […]
A game’s first impressions are made early in the piece. Getting some hands-on time can make a huge difference, but then again so can history. Prey 2017 has had a long and interesting development. While it shares the title and themes of both Prey and its cancelled sequel, Arkane’s effort is a different beast entirely. Different kinds […]
