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...

Shadow in the Cloud

My mum asked me if I wanted to see Shadow in the Cloud with her. “I don’t think Dad would be interested.” At the time, I had just lost my fifth match of competitive Overwatch in a row, and I thought the distraction would be nice. So I said, “Sure.” “Have you seen the trailer?” she asked. “No,” I replied, “b...

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 ...

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 games we yearned for in September, and your chance to win one of them!

New Zealand spent the month of September in lockdown, and I was definitely one of the sad people looking up games that might just cheer me up. Our friends at PriceSpy looked at our search trends for September and have listed the top five games we looked up. About a year after release, Nintendo’s Ring ...

Fall Guys (AKA the Only Battle Royale We Wanna Play)

Saskia – I hadn’t heard anything about Fall Guys when an invitation to review it popped up in our inbox. I had just discovered that my computer couldn’t run the PC edition of Horizon Zero Dawn and I was looking for something, ANYTHING, to fill the void. Fall Guys was more than up to the ta...

Great quality, great price – the JBL Quantum 400!

I have always been impressed with the quality of JBL products. I have several bluetooth speakers from JBL and have always raved about them. So, I was excited to see if these headphones measured up. And going by my spoiler of a title, I was impressed. The Quantum 400 is the mid-range option in a new series o...

“The Future of Gaming” according to the PS5

Today, alongside a multitude of great-looking games, Sony revealed the PlayStation 5 for the first time. Let me just cut straight to the chase. Here it is, in all its beautiful glory: Other than the reveal, the only new thing we really learned about the PS5 is that there will be two versions: one with a dis...

Jumanji: The Next Blu-ray

If you haven’t seen Jumanji: The Next Level and want a good time, see it. I loved it. Not necessarily as good as the first, but it at least adds something new and they did it well. In fact, if you loved the first one, you might as well get the sequel on blu-ray because it is a BALL. The film is fun, l...
