Relive your childhood on the PlayStation Classic

When I first heard about the PlayStation Classic, I thought “Oh, hey, that’s pretty cool.” But I wasn’t sure if it was going to be worth getting and, to be honest, I didn’t think many people would be into it.  It just looks like a quick money grab. But when I saw me and my frie...

Old Man’s Journey: Vacation-Mode Activated

Suspended somewhere between the realm of “game” and “visual novel”, Old Man’s Journey delivers an experience that you’ll probably be expecting based on the title alone. Playing as an old man, your journey starts when a letter arrives. Donning a backpack, the old man’s encounter with places and things sparks...

Spider-Man: Turf Wars

I liked the first part of Spider-Man DLC The City That Never Sleeps. I liked it. It was more of the same but I liked it. I hoped the next parts would be better. This … this is not better. What made The Heist fun was the relationship between Black Cat and Spider-Man and how that affected Peter Parker’s...

Chimparty (PlayLink)

Meet Gina Hara. She’s never had a crab stick before, loves Carcassonne the board game, and has directed a documentary called Geek Girls.

Co-op mode saves the day for Starlink: Battle For Atlas

It’s fair to say I was excited about getting my hands on Starlink: Battle For Atlas. What I found through a couple of weeks of gameplay was a good concept with some flaws in its execution that’s ultimately saved by its wildly fun co-op mode. Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world, space-based action ad...

No Man’s Sky – The Abyss

No Man’s Sky.. No Man’s Sky.. No Man’s Sky.. [big sigh] how I love you… how I hate you.. how confused I am by what you have become. It is hard to know exactly how I feel about this game now. I have defended (and rightly so) Hello Games and Sean Murray since I pre-ordered and started ...

SEE/SAW: Where Dying is a Strategy

If See/Saw was a baked good, it would be a chilli chocolate cake. Familiar, addictive, and yet hiding a punch that delivers when you think you’ve got it down. You start off as a character that needs to go through “tests”. Some professor dude (who looks weirdly a lot like you) takes you through the tut...

The Jackbox Party Pack 5

I squealed when I saw that this was going to be released. It was a little embarrassing because I was in a room full of people minding their own business. Needless to say, I am a big fan of the games. However, if you’re a Jackbox virgin, let me just quickly lay out what’s in store: 1) Learning st...
