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...

Yakuza 6

They say first impressions last. And thank goodness this isn’t always true, because while Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is not immediately endearing, it’s worth letting it warm up. The game opens with around an hour of opening cinematics, broken up by one short combat tutorial. Now, I’m into cut scenes, I enjo...

Frantics (PlayLink)

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...

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...

Fornite Battle Royale

The first thing to say is that I don’t like cartoon type games. I’ve never been a fan of games like Overwatch, etc, I just cant get into them. However, I am a fan of FPS and play a lot of PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), and when I saw this I thought, hey, this looks like it might be a go. So, I downlo...

The Pillars of the Earth: Book One

Man, life was hard in the middle ages. Especially when you have to give birth. In the snow. And your husband has no clue what to do. This is pretty much how useless I was playing as Tom Builder in the prologue of The Pillars of the Earth. Watching my wife bleed all over the ground, I finally had enough wits...

Knack 2

The original Knack game, a PS4 launch title about a size-shifting golem, released to a mixed reception. Players criticised the simplicity of the attacks and the challenging, old school combat, where one or two hits could result in death and checkpoints were vastly spaced. Sony Japan Studio takes us back int...

Agents of Mayhem Review

I’m a big fan of developer Volition’s Saints Row series of games with their satirical and larger than life style and absurdly hilarious missions, so when I was given the opportunity to review Volition’s new game, Agents of Mayhem, I jumped at the chance. Agents of Mayhem is an open world, 3rd person shooter...
