Licensed games have received a bit of a bad rap over the years. These tie-ins with commercial properties often fail to impress and most end up lying in the bottom of bargain bins. But relative newcomer Rocksteady has really surprised me with their take on the Batman franchise, stunned me in fact with how good […]

The game in one word: simplicity. The graphics, concept, and finishing are simple, yet eloquent and satisfying. The best part about this game is that it will probably work on that piece of melted cheese of a laptop you bought at Dick Smiths. You know, the one that you liked because it was cheap, and […]

“You have the sex appeal of a shar‑pei. I look that much like your fiancee?” It’s back, baby. Monkey Island. Fuck yeah, I’ve been waiting ages for this. This year Telltale Games announced they would be continuing the legendary, the epic, the humorous, the frightening the motherfucking engrossing, swashbuckling, lavishly adventurous, Monkey Island series. Better […]

With winter in full swing, long gone are the days when socialising outdoors was appropriate. But fortunately for us kids of the 21st century we have such indoor social devices like the Wii to distract us from awkward conversations about the local sports team with the boozy uncle at the 21st you were never invited […]

This is little pop culture nugget capitalises on the current popularity of the walking dead and is chock full of rapid click action. If you know Bejewelled, then you may have heard of PopCap, they’re the devils behind its creation and Plants vs. Zombies. They’re coming to specialise in smart game design that reduces the […]

Diane Spencer is a lady. I verified this in the way that you usually do—through asking and being given a baffled look of incomprehension. On stage she was a little British hornet of darkness packed into a tight redheadedness that complemented her lovely grey jeans, recently acquired in a Wellingtonian store. If you’ve ever read […]

br00tal alien slaughter fest I have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with survival-horror games. The idea of being immersed in a world where I’m some badass skux deluxe in a creepy fucked up world fucking up some horrifically mutated human alien creatures and be the heroic sounds like a killer good time. Well, sure beats […]
