A rollercoaster of emotions that a game should not be able to bring up.
I’ve been itching to replay The Last of Us since reviewing the PS3 version last year and that itch was something I had to ignore ever since I heard about the remastered version heading towards the PS4.
Arguably the best game of the last generation given the HD treatment and bundled with its DLC – what could go wrong? Absolutely nothing, there it is, the best just got better, period. Continue reading
Our own homegrown mini-E3 is hoving quickly into view and having missed out on last year’s trip to Sydney, I’m actually getting quite excited…

Next year it will be 100 years since the horrors of The Great War took place across Europe. Over 9 million combatants dead. And did the world learn from this? Nope, 20 years later we organised a sequel! Bloody mankind, you have to wonder sometimes.
Anyway, after the slew of games based on the horrific events of war comes Valiant Hearts. A side scrolling puzzler with a leaning to actually teach players historically accurate facts, while enjoying a great game in the freedom and safety given to you by the men and women who were killed in the war.
Lest We Forget. Continue reading
Your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man has had a new movie released, so prepare yourselves gamers, for the inevitable video game tie in.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The Video Game, has only minor narrative connections to its theatrical counterpart, so Canadian developer Beenox was in a great position to make their seventh ‘Web Slinger’ game very much their own. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been released on pretty much every platform on the market, from the 3DS to the next-gen consoles like PS4, which is the platform this review is based on. Continue reading
Chicago, a city full of people on mobile phones and the hacker with the best phone doesn’t even have a camera built in.
Watchdogs wowed us at E3 2012 with jaw dropping visuals and its innovative environment hacking gameplay. Two years and a delay later you have to look at all the expectation and wonder if it delivered.
My Watchdogs was late, later than most being delayed by glorious Aus Post, so I was doubly on the back foot to start with.
Until last weekend I had let Destiny slip from my radar, then amid the blitz of info from E3 came the news there was a limited Alpha and it was very, very soon.
So, here are a few in game shots I grabbed.
As for the experience; Destiny is a very polished product, beautiful and atmospheric environments in a well developed world. The combat while showing off its Halo roots is nicely paced and lends it self to the open nature of the game. Character models are well realised, the weapons handle differently and look superb and the always online drop-in drop-out is incredibly fluid. Not forgetting the crisp, clean nature of the user interface, menus are minimal and functional with a very modern design palette.
Overall if the Bungie minions are still working hard on this product it’s going to be a doozy once October rolls around. There’s a pile of screen grabs on the next page, with some youtube gameplay below.
