Astrologaster

Astrologaster is a story-driven astrological comedy game set in Shakespeare’s London. Take on the role of the notorious Doctor Simon Forman and use Astrology to treat his patients. Will you win their favour or ruin their lives? I started playing Astrologaster with very little prior knowledge about the game....

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...

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...

The Gardens Between

It always makes me happy when you crack open a new game and the first thing you see is, “Best with headphones.” What it tells me is that the experience I’m about to have comes from people who love their product enough to bring you the finer details. And that is precisely how I would descri...

A quick look at XERA: Survival

From the deep dark depths of the South Island of New Zealand (specifically Invercargill), a new game emerges from the darkness, foraging around for roots and leaves. Well, not really. The game is the brainchild of Kiwi developers Spotted Kiwi Interactive, and was released into the wild (ie. early access) on...

Total War: Three Kingdoms

It’s finally arrived, the newest fully fledged historical title in the Total War franchise. Total War: Three Kingdoms is the first in the award-winning series to recreate epic conflict across ancient China. For years Total War has combined turn-based strategy and resource management with real-time tactical ...

theHunter™: Call of the Wild

theHunter™: Call of the Wild is an immersive hunting game (duh). There are a number of parks or reserves in which you can hunt, ones from USA, Russia, and Africa, for example, which give you a pretty wide range of animals to hunt. So far I have only had experience in one park in the USA, where I can hunt bl...

A Hat in Time is well worth your time

I’ve been wanting to play this game since before it came out, but I never got around to buying it. Then Di, my wonderful fellow PMGer, bought it for me for Christmas! And so I binged that bad boy over the next couple of days. Wow, it was a rollercoaster. A Hat in Time is obviously a kid’s game. ...

Days Gone – First Impressions

I remember when I first saw a gameplay clip from the then in development Days Gone. It was a few years ago and I was immediately hooked on what looked like a mix of World War Z, The Last of Us and 28 Days Later. The 15 minute clip showed the protagonist with backwards cap and biker jacket, being chased by a...

The Division 2 – Geoff’s Thoughts

To be fair, after playing The Division 2 (henceforth “Div2“) private and public betas, I didn’t think I would shell out nearly $100 for the basic game package. I felt like I had probably done most of the things that one could do, including the PVP aspects. But then…I got bored, and i...

The Division 2 – Jaz’s Thoughts

I fell in love with The Division. Running around the empty city of New York, trudging through snow in the coolest of outfits and firing guns that felt so good. Seriously, if The Division did one thing right, it was how awesome the weapons felt. The Division 2 takes what its predecessor did well and adds a l...

Cat Lady

The one thing that Cat Lady had going for it right from the start (in my opinion) is its proclivity to name animals after things that they definitely are not. Case in point, my first dog would have been called “Bean Curd” were it not for my parents putting their foot down. I also called the neig...
