Hunt: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown Review: Monstrous Fun

March 2, 2020

My first experience with Hunt: Showdown sent shivers up my spine. Navigating a Louisiana bayou in search of a giant spider, the trail led me to an abandoned factory. Upon entering, it was clear; I had found my target. Cobwebs covered the walls and walkways, crunching underfoot as I scoured every inch of the place. […]

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Review: The Force is Strong with This One

November 18, 2019

Like the galaxy, the library of Star Wars video games is incredibly vast. As a huge Star Wars fan, every new experience becomes an automatic purchase, the hope that each new title will be better than the last. A true digital representation of the Star Wars universe in the palm of my hands. While some […]

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Review: Welcome Back, Old Friend

November 3, 2019

Developer Infinity Ward has grappled with its legacy ever since, trying to recapture the aspects of the game that made it a hit. In 2019, the roundabout of Call of Duty developers has […]

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint Review: Out of the Wildlands

October 7, 2019

Right out the gate, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint frustrated me. For every step the franchise took forward it in this iteration, it seemed to be taking two steps back. There are things to love in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, such as the vast open world, cinematic story and tight gunplay, but thanks to a largely similar […]

Rad Review: Mutate, Rinse, Repeat

August 26, 2019

Rad marks another genre turn for developer Double Fine, the studio behind classics like Psychonauts, Grim Fandango and Broken Age. Inkeeping with Double Fine studio lead Tim Schafer‘s abstract sense of humour, Rad is an imaginitive, colourful and wonderfully wacky rogue-like dungeon crawler. Bursting with colour and character, Rad might not be the best game […]

F1 2019 Review: Small changes, big finish

July 5, 2019

F1 2019 is in many ways, still the best Formula 1 racing game on the planet. But in doing so, it slows down its revolutionary formula for an evolutionary approach. While it makes enough changes year-to-year for this to remain a stellar instalment, I can’t help but feel it already had perfected things a year […]

Samurai Shodown Review: Tactical fighting fun

July 1, 2019

I’m a huge fan of the fighting game genre. Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur. You name it, I love it. But Samurai Shodown, a venerable SNK franchise I had heard of but never played, had eluded me. Part reboot, part sequel, the latest entry in the long-running series (which reduces the title back […]

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the Crash Team Racing released on the original PlayStation, a game determined to set itself apart from genre titan Mario Kart. Thankfully, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled recaptures the experience of playing CTR again for the first time, bursting with flavour, variety and fun, and packed with […]

We’re not spoiled for choice with gaming merch in Australia

December 21, 2018

I’ve been looking everywhere for what might be good gaming merchandise. I’ve trawled through official sites, brick-and-mortar stores and even outlets like Red Bubble. I have to admit, there’s not a whole lot of variety across all three of these, and what’s there is usually not that good, covered in brands or weird quotes or […]

Video Games Preview: Conan Exiles shows promise, but has a long walk across the desert ahead of it

March 2, 2017

If you have played any open world survival genre in the last 2 years, you’ve got a good idea how your time with Conan Exiles, even in this early state, will play out. Conan Exiles doesn’t really try anything new at this stage and for most that will be okay. It is essentially another entry in the […]

April 15, 2016

April is known as a “dry season” month in which very few video games are released. This time of year, the AAA hype train is usually slowing its roll, playing its cards to its chest as E3 looms in the middle-distance. 2016 has been bucking the trend though! March was full of great games! And then […]

Video Game First Impressions: Dirty Bomb (PC, 2015)

July 11, 2015

Let’s get one thing straight. Dirty Bomb ain’t easy to get a hang of. Indeed, Splash Damage (Quake Wars, Brink) have created an FPS so visually similar yet entirely different to most titles in the genre that you’d be a fool for walking in with your Call of Duty swagger. The very tutorial warns you […]
