SegaCultBanner Panzer Dragoon A-Go-Go!

I’ll be perfectly blunt: Panzer Dragoon Saga was the reason I bought a Saturn. I still remember reading my issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly where one or two of the reviewers had bestowed upon it a perfect ’10,’ which was an incredible rarity for the […]

OFLCvsPEOPLE-V3

Oh good, it’s this argument again. The OFLC has once again decided that Australian adult ears and eyes are far too sensitive for violence and have refused classification to Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. It’s not exactly new ground we’re covering and I’ve even talked […]

I love a good rogue-like; the hack’n’slash style gameplay and the inevitable loot-a-thons that follow just do it for me. It’s really easy to make a boring rogue-like, however, and a cursory glance over Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter will show you that. For every Rogue […]

top-10-2014-feature

Let’s be honest, when it comes to gaming, 2014 has seen its fair share of disappointment. There were blockbuster titles, such as Watch Dogs and Destiny, that promised to revolutionise the “next generation” of gaming (…and didn’t). As well as countless games that launched with […]
