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...

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...

Serious Sam 4

We live in a weird time. Maybe it’s always been weird, I can’t remember now. But I know that a lot of people are disappointed with… stuff. Environmental stuff, political stuff. Social stuff. I’ve noticed this effect not only on us consumers but also the creators of the world as well. You can tel...

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...

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...

Horizon Zero Dawn (PC edition)

This will be the second time Horizon Zero Dawn (HZD) has been reviewed on our site! You can check out Jaz’s PS4 review of Horizon Zero Dawn and also her review of the DLC The Frozen Wilds, for a different perspective. While she was smitten within moments, it took me awhile longer to fall in love with ...

6 Games where you are expected to die and how that dying feels, as described on Schmidt’s sting pain index

Games are often hard and because they are hard you will sometimes die. Dying doesn’t feel very good and being stung by an insect also doesn’t feel very good. Using this logic, and with the support of these studies (Naomi I. Eisenberger, et al. and Ethan Kross et al, 2011) that show mental pain is as real as...
