All aboard the Monster Train!

I’m going to be honest: I thought Monster Train wasn’t going to be very good. Weird trailer, and a silly name. “Monster Train” sounds like a useless toy one of those infomercials would be trying to sell during morning kids cartoons.  *energetic infomercial voice* Collect monsters and...

Predator: Hunting Grounds

The first Predator game I ever played was on the original Nintendo (NES) in the mid 90’s. You played as the hero Dutch (Arnie – “Get to da choppa!”) and it was as much a weird movie tie-in to the 1987 film as one could expect from the console. For some reason, Dutch wore bright pink pants in thi...

Death Stranding: Ashton’s spoiler-free review!

For almost three decades, Hideo Kojima has pretty much been known solely for the Metal Gear franchise. Hailed as one of the most unique game series of all time in terms of writing, execution and gameplay, Kojima made a mark on the gaming industry as somewhat of a gaming auteur with such a unique approach to...

Untitled Goose Game: Di’s Game of the Year thus far

I’ve never had a picnic of stolen goods before. Looking down at my picnic rug complete with overturned thermos and sandwiches chucked on the ground, I’m actually pretty proud of myself…and so it begins. Who knew that being a goose could be so much fun? But then again, I’m not just ha...

Little Misfortune: The Saddest Game I’ve Played So Far

Little Misfortune takes a leaf from Disney’s book. Rife with woodland creatures, pastel colours and lots of glitter, it’s easy to think that this is some cutesy story. That is, until you look at the main character’s diary. The narrator, nicknamed “Mr. Voice”, tells us that Litt...

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

On August the 28th, a dev from the Assassin’s Creed team released a new game. This game is called Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. It fits in the survival genre mostly, with action, adventure, and all that comes with it. Now, I was told that I should be good at this game, as I would appear to be the ...

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 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...
