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 is a first-person, survival horror, shooter set in a post apocalyptic Russia, and is the third installment in the series.

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 ...



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...

A Day with Dinosaur Polo Club

PMG reviewer Di recently covered the little success of Kiwi-made indie game Mini Metro. She spent many hours staring at transit maps, dreaming of geometric shapes and brainstorming new strategies to solve cities’ commuter problems. After some more hours, Di started wondering about the intriguing logo ...

Survisland – The hardest survival game in 2018, they say

Imagine.. You wake up lying on a beach on a deserted island. All you have is a pair of jeans and a tshirt. Fortunately the sun is shining, but you see dark clouds looming. You’re hungry and night is approaching. You check your vitals, everything seems okay, but you’re tired. You see a coconut pa...

The Making of Mavericks: Proving Grounds

Mavericks is a new and interesting looking battle royale-type game that is coming soon to a PC near you. I recently wrote an article for PMG with some information about how things are supposed to look. In that info was a suggestion that there would be a closed beta happening this month, which I had hoped to...

Sonic Mania Plus

I forgot how hard Sonic is. Or how bad I am at Sonic. Actually, remembering back to the mid 90s, being a NES kid, I remember being pretty rubbish at Sega games in general. Alex The Kidd always saw me being killed by ghosts way too early in the game, losing Paper, Scissors, Rock, and marveling at the fact th...
