Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (Spoiler Free Review!)

Rift Apart opens in a grim yet somehow still vibrant futuristic city, with an unknown figure darting through the dreary crowds of robots who are trying their best to keep their heads down. The only sources of light come from neon signs that valiantly fight to keep shining, but even the rain falling on nothi...

Returnal

I’ve enjoyed this game quite a bit. Sometimes I will leave frustrated at my own inability to progress much further, but often I’m happy with the challenge. I’ve said my piece in the video review above, but there were a few extra things I want to mention! Checkpoints Okay, so, it can really...

Win yourself two of 2020’s best games thanks to PriceSpy!

It’s 2021, and a fine opportunity to grab some of the best games of 2020 now that they’ve finally sunk in price. Take Ghost of Tsushima for example. Despite coming out over six months ago, last month it was the most searched-for game on PriceSpy! This might have something to do with a late price...

Medieval Dynasty

Guest review by Geoff Gummer I’m just a simple man. I can hunt, I can make a few simple tools. I’ve travelled far to visit my uncle, but he was killed. The Castellan says I can have as much land as I want, as long as I pay taxes to the King. In the immortal words of The Clash, “should I st...

A PriceSpy Christmas Gift!

NBA 2K21

I’ve been playing NBA 2K for many years now, and it’s actually where my love of basketball originated. So, I loved the short time I had to play NBA 2K21 on the PS5. But before we continue, I realized it’s practically impossible to infer inflection in a written review, so let me say that one more time. I loo...

Flippin' great

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

I’ve bemoaned the lack of good kids games in recent years. Little Big Planet and now spin-off Sackboy: A Big Adventure are a few of the great ones. It’s a co-op game, so I asked Di to come over, drink Bailey’s and play it with me. After a sweet and also terrifying cutscene, we drop into th...

Spider-Man: Miles Morales Spoiler Free Review

I really enjoyed Marvel’s Spider-Man (reviewed by Laura!) but was slightly disappointed by the three DLCs that followed it. Ultimately they gave us more of the same, which is both what I wanted, but also already had in a spectacular game. Spider-Man: Miles Morales is not DLC. Nor is it disappointing &...

PlayStation 5 – The Review

We were completely flabbergasted when Sony came to us and were like, do you want to review the PlayStation 5? Our response was, “Uhh, heck yes!” I have been a fan of the PlayStation since I got a PS2 for Christmas way back in 2000. So being able to review the latest generation is an absolute hon...

When Jaz met the PS5

Today I had the pleasure of meeting the PlayStation 5. Yes, that’s right. I sat in a room and held the controller of one of only three consoles in all of New Zealand. And I gotta say, it was flipping cool! We didn’t get to see any of the UI or home screen or anything, but we did play a demo of A...

The Outer Worlds

With its first DLC being released later this week, I thought it was probably a good time to take a look back at one of my favourite games so far from the past 12 months: The Outer Worlds. You are the Unplanned Variable; a settler aboard the colonist spaceship The Hope, carrying some of Earth’s brightest min...

Pick Up Quick!

New Zealand has always been a place where dreams come true, and now a little piece of New Zealand exists within Dreams. Pick Up Quick! is a new video game where you can explore virtual versions of iconic Kiwi beaches. Like their real life counterparts, these pixelated paradises are tarnished by cigarette bu...
