I recently downloaded Pokemon Go again, upon hearing of the new update introducing trading… Much like everyone, I too went through a period where I had stopped playing… So after installing, I asked myself ‘is it fun again’?

Sisyphus Reborn is a game about rolling a rock up a hill, or rather, digging a hole. Styled as a point-and-click adventure game, it plays as more of a visual novel, with only a handful of clicks not dedicated to moving across the screen. There is little actual play here, but the act of “playing” […]
NightmareZ is an indie platformer developed by Anamik Majumdar. In the vein of early Sonic The Hedgehog titles, the player character moves from platform to platform by spinning through the air and bouncing off terrain. The game’s levels are divided into stages, during which players must collect objects by zipping around the level, dodging enemies […]

I would like all of you lovely readers to take a look at this trailer before reading my review: This is the launch trailer for Milanoir. A game with a concept that I instantly fell for through this trailer and knew I just had to play. The trailer is essentially also the intro for the […]
Alright, I’ll admit, I wanted to review this game cause of anime titties. Okay now leave me alone. Gal Gun 2 is a pretty darn okay game – If I had to sum it up, the entire game is an on rails shooter with dating sim mechanics thrown in. It’s a direct sequel to Gal […]
Vampyr, the new project from DontNod – The guys behind Life Is Strange, is a bit of an odd beast. 2 parts incredible choice-driven story title with 1 part mediocre action game, Vampyr is a game that, despite pretty boring combat-wise, I found myself unable to resist the bite and stop playing.
Horror games… I’ve always been a fan of watching Let’s Plays of horror games, from typical survival horrors to just damn-right gruesome indie titles; they have always been one of those genres that I’ve loved, yet never really played myself… So when I was given a game titled “The Piano” that happens to be a […]
According to reports, NBN Co. is currently ‘evaluating’ throttling internet users during peak times in Australia, in an effort to tackle wireless network congestion. CEO Bill Morrow clarified at a Parliamentary hearing that users likely to be affected were “gamers predominantly”.
There’s only one thing I love more than seeing new and interesting games being released… And that’s old games being preserved so that people who did not have access to those games can play them eventually. I am completely fine and most of the time super stoked when a new port or HD remaster gets […]

With Vampyr knocking on our coffins relatively soon, we’ve been taking […]
After two phases of voting across two months, the competition committees for the Overwatch World Cup have been finalised. Each includes a general manager, coach, and a community lead, who will collectively make decisions regarding each national team’s roster, management, and promotion.
Fans purchased more than 20,000 tickets to the eSports championship in Brooklyn, New York. The largest eSports event ever slated at Barclays Center sold out within two weeks of its public on-sale date Tickets to the first-ever Overwatch League Grand Finals have sold out. The competition to determine the champions of the world’s first major […]
Moira is one of Overwatch’s more recently added characters, having been announced at Blizzcon 2017 and released later that year. With a tall, gaunt, and androgynous appearance, there were instantaneous connections made between her and the late David Bowie, who was referenced directly by a pair of ‘Ziggy Stardust’ inspired alternate skins. But why does […]
A finely crafted love letter to fans of retro Castlevania titles… But has a botched launch impacted the game’s credibility? It’s a bit of a well known fact amongst us lads and lasses here at Respawning that the first game I ever owned and had bought for me (Instead of them being gifted by cousins […]
As a wee lad back in the day, I used to watch my brother collect and paint Warhammer soldiers. This was before he stopped being a nerd and decided sports were cooler (For which I still haven’t forgiven him); this was my first taste of the Warhammer universe. Particularly the 40K bit. My brother used […]
