NZ’s favourite games of July 2022

Every month or so we like to team up with PriceSpy and do a bit of a giveaway. On their website, they do the hard work of comparing prices of the same thing at different shops so you don’t have to! 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...

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

I’m not going to individually review either game in the Legacy of Thieves Collection. I’ve already done so, back when they first released in 2016 and 2017. If you so desire, you can read my review of Uncharted 4 and my review of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Spoiler alert, I gave them both a 10 ou...

Deathloop

Please be aware that while I’m not going to spoil the ending here, I am going to talk about how I felt about it. You have been warned. Also watch the video, I’m not repeating anything from it. First of all, I enjoyed Deathloop. I liked running around Blackreef, shooting people, using the magic s...

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...

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 ...

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 &...

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...
