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 […]

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 […]

Worms W.M.D

One of the first games I can remember playing as a kid was Scorched Earth, which placed players in tanks and pitted them against one another on a fairly basic landscape. It had things like different weapon types, environmental factors that affected shot speed and […]

No Man’s Sky

Author’s Note: I would love to have taken some screenshots to illustrate my points a bit better, but as you might have heard, the PC version of the game is a little crash-prone when it comes to alt-tabbing, screenshots or being opened. Apologies for the […]

Bear With Me – Episode One

When I first stumbled across Bear With Me, I’m not sure what struck me first: the fact it’s a point ‘n’ click adventure or that it’s a noir-inspired tale starring a teddy bear detective. I’m a massive fan of crime and mystery thrillers from the […]
