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...

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...

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 ...

Co-op mode saves the day for Starlink: Battle For Atlas

It’s fair to say I was excited about getting my hands on Starlink: Battle For Atlas. What I found through a couple of weeks of gameplay was a good concept with some flaws in its execution that’s ultimately saved by its wildly fun co-op mode. Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world, space-based action ad...

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the twelfth installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the first where you can pick one of two genders to play as. Based during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, you play as either Alexios or Kassandra, a mercenary in possession of their ancestral king’s broken...

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...

Well, it’s finally happened. Hello Games released their trailer for “NEXT” their “Massive new update” (according to the new Xbox game cover). Before you go – ahhh meh – No Man’s Lie, etc, have a look at this trailer (which appears to be actual server gameplay): Some of the changes they have announced ...

LEGO Incredibles

Nothing will ever beat the experience that was the first LEGO Star Wars game. That’s why, though still good, every other LEGO game succeeding it was still somehow slightly disappointing. LEGO Incredibles is the same, however I reckon it comes the closest to the glory of LEGO Star Wars. The one thing I...
