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. ...

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...

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a first-person, survival horror, shooter set in a post apocalyptic Russia, and is the third installment in the series. The Metro games are based on the series of Metro books by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. I haven’t played the previous titles in the Metro series or read the books, so I ...

Far Cry New Dawn

Far Cry New Dawn kinda feels like it was originally going to be DLC and then Ubisoft was like, “what the hell, make it a full game!” You could say it’s $80 for “more of the same,” but let’s be honest, all Far Crys are just more of the same. Ubisoft is just really good at ...

What in the World is “Carmen Sandiego”?

Netflix’s recent release of Carmen Sandiego may trigger excitement in all those 80s babies who grew up with Brøderbund’s original release of the game. If you missed it, you also missed out on the 8-bit version of our red-headed villain and being called “gumshoe” by foreign strangers....

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 ...
