Aragami

I really wanted to like Aragami. Created by Lince Works with a soundtrack from Two Feathers, Aragami was the game I was most looking forward to from E3 this year. My favourite game ever is Mark of the Ninja, so that may not be entirely […]

BioShock: The Collection

Few games have left such a tremendous, distinct footprint on video games as the BioShock series. It’s only fair that after almost ten years since the original BioShock, the entire collection is lovingly packaged and re-released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (plus free updates […]

Forza Horizon 3

When it comes to racing games, I’ll openly admit I’m never the first to put my hand up for a review. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them on occasion, but I’m simply not a big enough car fan to care about the subtle differences […]

ReCore

There’s a burger place in Mt Lawley that serves ‘challenge’ burgers. These beasts of dead cattle are somewhere between 95-98% beef, and the buns are there as a formality more than anything else. These behemoths have hospitalised people, and a rare few manage to get […]

Grow Up

I first came across ‘Grow Home’ while scouring casual downloads on Playstation Plus, in attempts to coax a friend away from yet another humdrum round of NBA 2K. As nice as it is to see someone passionate about their go-to game, when they take it […]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

My introduction to Deus Ex began with a trailer back in 2010—yeah, you know the one. With its iconic black and gold aesthetic, cyberpunk themes, references to Greek mythology, and one of the most famous one-liners in gaming today: “I never asked for this…” Deus […]
