Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 opens with a helicopter ride and an expositional spiel about how Joseph Seed, The Father, has taken over Hope County. A few US Marshalls have been sent in to arrest him, including you, the Rookie. A beginning so basic and (if I had to admit) a bit boring, meant things weren’t boding well for...

Tomb Raider

As soon as Tomb Raider starts, you know it’s going to have a very different flavour to the Angelina Jolie films. You know there aren’t going to be any sexy open-mouthed shower scenes. And you know there won’t be any crash zooms into gun-strapped thighs with suggestive sound effects. And it’s refreshing. Tom...

Frantics (PlayLink)

Have you ever thought, “Man, I wish I could invite my friends over to play a game,” but then realised all your friends have little-to-no skill with a controller? Well, stay tuned, because I bring tidings of great joy. A new age of party games is dawning, and it comes in the form of PlayLink – a new ap...

Mary Magdalene

Imagine a bible story where Peter wants war, Jesus falls into trances and faints all the time, and Judas is the most likable character. That is Mary Magdalene in a nutshell. I walked into the theatre quite hopeful. It looked like there was a decent budget behind the film and the friend I went with was prett...

Super Mario Odyssey!

Okay, I’m going to be straight up with you. The only other Mario game I’ve ever played is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario for me was always some other console’s Crash Bandicoot (hey, I’m young, and I only played PlayStation as a kid). But Super Mario Odyssey almost made me feel...

Gran Turismo Sport Review

Here it is! One of the staples of Playstation on it’s latest console: Gran Turismo Sport! After the best introduction to a game EVER, I was pumped! However, when I opened the game without an internet connection, I was greeted with the message that the game would not save. Nor would any progress be mad...

Gran Turismo Pit Stop Experience!

I drove up to the Sony Headquarters and sat in my car. We had been invited to a “GT Pit Stop Experience,” and I immediately volunteered as tribute. When the day finally arrived, my enthusiasm and the lack of expected Auckland traffic got the better of me and I arrived 40 minutes early. After a long wait and...

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Ubisoft have been wanting to do a crossover with Nintendo for years, and now it’s finally here. Okay, before you run away thinking, “Raving Rabbids and Mario? What a weird combo,” first hear me out! Yes, it’s a weird combo – but it doesn’t come across as forced! The game boasts a very pretty art style...

Haruta & Chika (Haruchika)

Haruta & Chika (Haruchika) combines two of my favourite genres of anime: slice-of-life and mystery. It’s not often you get to chill with a wholesome puzzle solving anime, so I was overjoyed to discover this one. We’re first introduced to Chika who, with the ambition of restarting her reputation to becom...

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

I am a sucker for action/adventure games, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy sucked me right in! The latest installment to the Uncharted series was supposed to just be DLC. But then it somehow turned into a full game. Well, I say full game. I managed to finish it on Hard in just over eight hours. It’s not as lo...

Patapon Remastered

Patapon is a remaster of the critically acclaimed 2007 PSP game. It’s a 2D scrolling rhythm game, where you, the god of the Patapons, lead your subjects on a journey to Earthend so that they may gaze upon IT (“for eternal contentment!”). You and your four drums, Pata, Pon, Chaka, and Don, order the Patapons...
