Cult of the Lamb

Start your own cult in a land of false prophets, venturing out into diverse and mysterious regions to build a loyal community of woodland worshippers and spread your Word to become the one true cult. It has been a low-key dream of mine for many years to start and lead a cult, so something about Cult of the ...

And they’ve let us give two of you lucky readers the chance to win one of the top five most search...

Horizon Forbidden West

Many great games came out in 2017. Persona 5, Hellblade, Nier: Automata. Breath of the Wild won Game of the Year. But the game that I couldn’t stop playing until I finished it one morning at 3am was Horizon Zero Dawn. I loved it. It was exactly the kind of game I was craving at the time it came out. S...

The Top 5 Games of April and May (and your chance to win one!)

Here we are again with the top five most searched for games on PriceSpy New Zealand for the months of April and May 2021. To my surprise, most of them released last year! Coming in at number one is the absolute stunner Ghost of Tsushima. This near masterpiece is universally adored, and is apparently still o...

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!

Hands up if you’re a last minute Christmas shopper! If New Zealand were a room of 10 people and you raised your hand, two other people would have raised their hand with you. And one of them would have been me. Yep, according to a survey done on PriceSpy‘s behalf, 28% of Kiwis admit they will be ...

Good

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...

Great

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 &...
