Alleys: A Virtual Experience that Might be Better than the Real Thing

If the thought of virtually walking through a dark alley fills you with both excitement and dread, I might just have the game for you. Alleys by solo developer Shi-Chi Chen is an immersive experience that throws you into a large-scale escape room. Come through the theme park-like gates and enter an abandone...

Pixar has a Hopeful Future and You Could Attend a Wizarding School!

Kia Ora, this is the Pretty Much Weekly! A weekly series where we sometimes share this week’s news, and other times share news that we only found out about this week. Of the latter, the documentary on the making of God of War is out, Pixar is currently only working on original films, and you can hop o...

E3 2019: Di’s Arbitrary Indie Awards

E3 is often about the pomp and circumstance of some of the biggest and most hyped games to come. But if you’re a hipster-gamer like me, read on, dear one. Based on Kinda Funny Games’ 2019 E3 indie showcase, I present to you my very own arbitrary awards ceremony for the indie games that caught my...

Robert Downey Jr is Iron Man and Uncharted Movie gets a release date

It’s the Pretty Much Weekly! The series where we give you the latest in movies, games and tech. I actually have something in tech this week! This week, Chernobyl is a pretty good show, Apple leaves their hardcore fans speechless, and maybe Robert Downey Jr. actually IS Tony Stark?! Chernobyl is pretty popul...

Ophelia

With a slight contemporary voice, Ophelia still is everything you’d want from a movie set in the Middle Ages. Sword fighting, sumptuous gowns, a touch of madness and non-American accents…what more could you want? Chances are, a whole lot more. And fortunately, Ophelia delivers, and not just in b...

Ubisoft’s E3 Conference 2019

This was probably my favourite conference so far! Ubisoft kicked things off with a taste of their Assassin’s Creed Symphony, which will be going on a “world” tour. So if you’re going to the US, Canada, London or Paris sometime this year, maybe consider popping in? The whole conferenc...

Xbox at E3 2019 – In Brief

Xbox were very proud to say they had the biggest showcase of games this year with 60 games being at least mentioned. I’ve linked the live stream here, but read on for my personal highlights. Yep, there were A LOT of games. There was a bunch of stuff we were reminded that was coming, like Dying Light 2...

EA Play 2019 – an overview! (minus the sport stuff)

EA decided to do a three hour livestream instead of the shorter hour long conference as is traditional so they could take a “deep dive” into each of the six games they wanted to talk about. Here is a link to the full broadcast, but I’m going to give a quick overview below. Read on for Star...

We now know how much Google Stadia is going to cost

I’m going to cut the bullcrap and just get right into it. Stadia Pro is going to cost $9.99USD a month. That’s the same price as Spotify premium. So it’s probably going to be around $15 a month in Kiwi dollars. But that’s if you go for Stadia’s subscription service. You donR...

Xbox Deodorant and the line up for E3 2019

Hello! It’s the Pretty Much Weekly! The series where we give you the latest in movies, games and occasionally TV shows. Usually it’s a combo of two of the three. Like this week, Halo is getting a TV show, Google and Netflix are at E3 this year and Lynx has turned Xbox into a scent. Smell like Xb...

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

It’s about time we had something about Jean Grey. After the slew of Logan-centric movies, as much as I enjoyed them all, I’m ready to focus on a different character. Dark Phoenix is set a few years after Apocalypse. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), now sporting his trademark hairstyle, has finally...

Never Look Away: You won’t be able to anyway.

Every time I go to see an “artsy” foreign film, I find myself bracing for one or more of the following: violence, debauchery and gratuitous angst. Whether founded or not, this is my personal impression from surviving film school. And so with Never Look Away, a film mostly set in post-war East Ge...
