Our Thoughts on the Ghost Recon: Wildlands Closed Beta

The first weekend of February gave us the closed beta for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, an open world game where you get to choose how you want to defeat the drug cartels of Bolivia. Laura, Di and Jaz got the chance to try it out. Here are their thoughts: Laura I’ve never played a Tom Clancy Ghost Recon game before so I wasn’t sure what to expect with Wildlands. It’s the first open world ga...

The Nintendo Switch!

To our utter most excitement, Di and I were invited to check out the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s new, quirky console. Our adventure began as we walked cautiously into the fancy lobby of a hotel. We didn’t really know where to go, but after a bit of searching we found a sign that said, “Nintendo. Level 10. Get key from Reception.” After acquiring a key, we entered the elevat...

No Man’s Sky Update!

Hello Games has announced the “first of many” free updates for No Man’s Sky! Now, you might be thinking, “Oh, that game. Wasn’t that a flop?” Well, no, I don’t think it was a flop, I just think it was overhyped and quite an ambitious game for a team of twelve or however little people work at the studio. It’s still a good and enjoyable game! And now, ...

Playstation VR Experience!

Playstation VR is launching in NZ October 13! We headed along to give some of the games a try! I wasn’t prepared for how putting on the headset suddenly dropped me in the passenger seat of a drive-by shootout. It was surreal. For a moment, I actually thought that I could feel the air-conditioning from the car vents and then I realized that there were just subtle things that made it that imme...

News – PS4 Pro

Last Wednesday, Sony announced the PS4 Slim as well as what was going to be the PS4 Neo. Except, now it’s called the PS4 Pro. Basically it’s better graphics: HDR and 4K. The unfortunate thing is that you need a TV that supports it. What this also means is that consoles are no longer going to be on the same playing field graphics and frame-rate-wise. Whether this is a good thing or not is totally u...

No Man’s Sky – A First Taste

I can see why Sean Murray says it’s not for everyone. There is a lot of wandering around and mining stuff. So, I guess, first off I’ll say that if you don’t like Minecraft, perhaps this isn’t the game for you. However, I do like Minecraft. So as I played No Man’s Sky I loved the whole collecting stuff and realising that every collectible thing is useful at some point. In fact, it’s very useful. Be...
