When 300 words is more than enough
Essentially, Neo Cab is a taxi simulator set in the future.
Where automated cars dominate the ride share business and you drive the only human-driven cab in the region. You play as Lina. A driver for Neo Cab who has uprooted her stable life and moved to Capra City, all for the sake of friendship and maybe love.
Neo Cab’s slow-boil story is not going to be for every gamer. Especially for those with itchy trigger fingers crafted through years of Call of Battlefield or other first person combat games. Neo Cab is a snail’s pace game, one that develops the more you progress.
Worth a look if you like games that try something a little bit different.
Traditional long format reviews
Sparklite is a nice little Rogue-like with some Zelda-esque icing.
Doing a few runs into the world of Geodia is an excellent way to fill in time when you don’t have hours up you sleeve to game with.
It’s not all that original but is well executed, easy to pick up, and deep enough to last a while. Why not give it a crack.
Occasional Features, maybe off topic, maybe news, maybe opinion pieces, mostly interesting.
A blur of a few weeks ago at PAX I go to go hands-on with Espire1: VR Operative from Digital Lode. On that day the release had been pushed back to a loose ‘pre-xmas’. It felt appropriate to hold back until a day like today, when the launch date was finally announced.
And that Release Date is THIS WEEK! Yes, THIS WEEK!
The game has been described as a Stealth VR Shooter, Guy has been dribbling over it for months because to him, it’s Splinter Cell VR. Either way Espire 1: VR will certainly tick some boxes.
Espire1 has been put together by a passionate and driven micro team of developers. The game ‘feels’ like a release from a much bigger studio and deserves some attention. I can only hope the install base on the PSVR gives it a strong showing. I for one will be leaping into an Espire unit this weekend. To stealth, shoot, scan, climb and hack my way out of trouble.
Espire1: VR Operative – it’s VR Splinter Cell, what could go wrong?
Gadgets, Gifts and stuff that we like that isn't a game.
Powerwave Controller Phone Mount. That’s a mouthful, isn’t it?
Yes, I would say, but then I would also say. Good things come in small packages.
Currently hitting retail across Australia these nifty clip-on mounts really do offer you a better mobile gaming experience. With two models designed for PS4 and Xbox Powerwave have not re-invented a wheel, but they have done a good job making sure theirs is round.
When offered the chance to take a closer look I went with the Xbox unit. The main reasons being that I still actively use my Vita and PS-TV for gaming away from the TV. So with one eye on the future of Xbox streaming I figured it would be worth seeing how the unit fit for Microsoft.
