FIREWALL: Zero Hour, PSVR Review

A decent FPS is the Holy Grail of PSVR gaming, was pretty much the sentiment of our Farpoint Review a whole fourteen months ago, since then there have been plenty of reasons to argue against that statement. Moss and its isometric take, Star Trek, being basically my little boy dream and games like The Inpatient lifting the genre.

That’s all set to change, Firewall has arrived and it falls neatly into the unoccupied space of an online team based shooter that can hold its own against Rainbow Six.

Spider-Man, PS4 Review

It is a brave development studio that takes on a ‘Superhero’ videogame and an even braver one to base it on one of the most well-known and beloved Marvel Comics heroes ever created, but Sony and Insomniac Games did, and thankfully they have done the web-slinger proud.

In this PS4 exclusive, Peter Parker, the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, has been cleaning up New York for 8 years and just when he thought he had NYCs worst crooks all locked away, something demonic tears the city apart and unleashes chaos onto the streets.

JUMP ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN PEOPLE!

The 2018 Player2 Charity Marathon – back for thirdsies

Yes, we’re plugging another blog, but for a great reason and besides it’s a community thing and together we can make a village or something, in Minecraft at least.

After a successful charity event last year, the Player 2 team are coming back once again to raise money for the Terry Campese Foundation. Last year the team raised over $3700 for the charity, every cent of which went to helping sick and underprivilege families from the Canberra and Southern NSW regions.

This year the crew aim to beat that mark and are looking at the possibility of reaching $4000.

Strange Brigade, PS4 Review

Rebellion have come up trumps with this one, a third person shooter full of mildly challenging puzzles, loot and wave upon wave of monstrous entities.

Taking a sprinkling of Boy’s Own Adventures mixed with a healthy dose of Michael Palin’s Ripping Yarns, enjoy a rollicking trip of Devil-May-Cry-Derring-Do, adventuring into the unknown and fighting evil wherever it raises a mummified head.

Time to get out there and kick Evil where it hurts old chaps!

God of War, PS4 Review

How do you take a big angry Spartan, who has a thing for killing Gods, ripping out eyeballs and taking sexy baths with naked ladies and turn him into a complex, heart-broken character, who is a father that knows he isn’t up to the responsibility of the role.

Well if you are Sony, you give Santa Monica Studios a boat load of money, a heap of time and the creative freedom to completely re-imagine what it is to be a God Of War.
