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 the 24th of May. What is XERA: Survival? Well, quite simply: XERA: Survival is an action fo...

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 black bear, moose, rabbits, ducks, several kinds of deer, and elk. This is the kind of game wh...

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 it was my birthday, so I went and paid for it. And I wasn’t disappointed. Let’s r...

Cat Lady

The one thing that Cat Lady had going for it right from the start (in my opinion) is its proclivity to name animals after things that they definitely are not. Case in point, my first dog would have been called “Bean Curd” were it not for my parents putting their foot down. I also called the neighbourhood cat “Pickles” and I currently have a chicken named “Oyster”...

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls 3 came out in 2016. For those unfamiliar with the series, Dark Souls is a challenging action role-playing game made by the Japanese studio FromSoftware. It’s the brainchild of Hidetaki Miyazaki (no not that Miyazaki), a different genius) and a series I’ve invested many hours each title of since Dark Souls 1 (missing out on Demon’s Souls). Anyway, here are my thoughts o...

Knowledge is Power: Decades (PlayLink)

Are you great at guessing or are you even genuinely knowledgeable in all areas? Get your friends, family and enemies together to find out whether you have the brains to match your smart mouth, because in this game, Knowledge is Power. As a sequel to Knowledge is Power, Knowledge is Power: Decades is its own separate title. It still plays the same, has some familiar power plays, and you still have ...

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 palm, and some banana trees. You don’t have the energy to climb a tree. You look around&...

Hungry Dragon: Eating Humans is Fun!

Look, we all do it! You do it, I do it, she does it, and even he does it, yes… even him. Using your smartphone on the toilet is almost certainly unhygienic – but you’ve got to do something to pass the time. Unfortunately, the new app game: Hungry Dragons has led to 1 or 2 people believing I may be sick… we don’t need to go into specifics here. But the truth is I’ve just been enraptured by the newe...

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Have you ever wanted to swing and glide through New York City, scuttling up and down skyscrapers and stopping only to beat up bad guys? If you answered yes, then you’re going to want to get your hands on Insomniac’s new Spider-Man game on PS4. It captures the amazing feel of being a superhero with an entire city as your playground. The gameplay is broken into two quite distinct styles. The main mi...

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 get access to. Whelp… bad news. There won’t be a closed beta, or an open beta, ...

Review: Detention

I’m someone who likes to trick myself into thinking I can handle, even enjoy, the horror genre. So when the opportunity to review Detention popped up I was all like ‘pfft yea of course I can handle it LOL’. After all, it’s basically a point and click side-scrolling game  with 0% combat and I played a million of those in the 90s.  I think I managed about ten minutes on my ow...

Why DotA 2 Eats N00bs for Breakfast

In considering a review for one of the most highly-successful (and possibly most hated) games in MOBA history, I scrapped that idea. Almost every gamer already has an opinion of DotA 2. And to be fair, no one is really wrong. Ask any gamer what DotA is and you’ll usually get one of the following responses: 1) “I tried it for awhile and just couldn’t get into it.” 2) “...
