We now know how much Google Stadia is going to cost

I’m going to cut the bullcrap and just get right into it. Stadia Pro is going to cost $9.99USD a month. That’s the same price as Spotify premium. So it’s probably going to be around $15 a month in Kiwi dollars. But that’s if you go for Stadia’s subscription service. You don’t own those games, you just have access to Stadia’s entire library of games at any ...

Ralph Breaks the Internet

You and I step into Tapper’s together. We sit down and wave the barman over. He asks us our orders before handing us a root beer each. We both smell it in disgust because it’s root beer and so I offer you a ginger beer, spiced with cinnamon for the festive season. “So,” you pop the lid off your beer, “How was your day?” “Well,” I reply, “I̵...

5 Things You Can Do in Spider-Man!

If you haven’t yet grabbed yourself a copy of Spider-Man then it’s probably because you don’t own a PS4, and for that I will bestow you with a moment of silence. … If you do, however, own the only platform you can play this amazing game on and have not managed to get your hands on it, then I implore you: fix this horrible mistake you are making! And while you’re waiti...

Hardback: Call Me a Literary Padawan

Did you know that “anil” is a word? I didn’t. But my AI opponent has just scored a preposterous 4 points on a word that doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. So much for my university degree in English. On the bright side, I have been meaning to combat exposure to cat memes and emojis by expanding my vocabulary. So I’m glad to add Hardback to my arsenal of board game apps. Developer Fo...

Reigns: Her Majesty

It seems the world is a flurry of royal news. Royal babies, royal weddings…and I’m glad to say the virtual world is following suit. What’s it like to be royal? We find out in Reigns: Her Majesty. The game follows up from the original Reigns but now has you as the Queen. It’s also got a feminist slant to it, although I thought it was more of the humorous  kind rather than th...

So many games, too much to do!

I remember when Skyrim came out. It was massive and beautiful and basically the next level in open world gaming. Fallout was popular, and Dragon Age II had just come out as well. But there weren’t many other games with the same scale and beauty of Skyrim. It could take a whole hour in real time to travel from one side of the map to the other. Nowadays open world seems to be the way games are going...
