If you were one of the many people queuing up at this year’s PGF to try any number of the games on offer, chances are, if you had kids, or, you yourself, weren’t colourblind, you were drawn toward Collateral Damage. (I’m partially colourblind, but I […]

This being my first time at the Perth Games Festival, I didn’t know what to expect aside from an array of student showcases full of potential. While this was the case for most of the exhibits I saw, the first game I dug in with […]

Call of Duty: WWII Review

Syberia 3 Review

Syberia 3 is a difficult game to recommend. I suspect it fills a particular niche set of tastes for a particular type of adventure game fan. One who doesn’t like quick-time-events, doesn’t need brazen or wacky humour, and has plenty of time on their hands […]
