The legendary Mortal Kombat series finally comes to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One with the cross-gen Mortal Kombat X.

Set, for the most part, 20 years after the last game, this first outing for the current-gen (but it is available for PS3 and Xbox 360 as well) introduces the offspring of several characters as well as bringing back some old favourites. Continue reading Mortal Kombat X PlayStation 4 review

Veteran British actor, Charles Dance (Alien 3, Game of Thrones, Deadline Gallipoli) features in the the cast of upcoming epic fantasy role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Dance, who played family patriarch Tywin Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones, should feel quite at home providing the voice of Emhyr var Emreis, the ruthless Emperor of Nilfgaard in the long awaited conclusion to The Witcher trilogy of games.

Ride PlayStation 4 review

I once heard it said that riding a motorcycle is as close as you can get to piloting a jet fighter without actually piloting a jet fighter.

And I tend to agree.

For a motorcyclist, there’s absolutely no comparison to be made between driving a car at breakneck speed and the absolute thrill of riding a motorbike at full throttle.

They are two very different animals.

Whereas a driver simply controls his car using pedals and a steering wheel, a motorcycle becomes an extension of its rider. The motorcyclist’s whole body influences the machine not just his hands and feet.

It’s a strange symbiotic relationship between man and machine that is very hard to explain, and even harder to translate into a video game. Continue reading Ride PlayStation 4 review

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition PlayStation 4 review

Yet another last-gen game gets a scrubbed-up new-gen re-release. This time it’s the turn of Capcom’s DmC: Devil May Cry.

Since 2001 we have been following the button-mashing adventures of Dante, a brash young man with a shock of white hair, and a thing about outlandish weapons, on a mission to avenge the death of his mother.

Four games and an anime series later and publishers, Capcom, decided to take the cult character in a new direction for the fifth outing handing development duties over to Brit outfit, Ninja Theory. Continue reading DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition PlayStation 4 review

Dragon Age: Inquisition Jaws of Hakkon DLC PC review

EA Games and Bioware have given me just the excuse that I needed to return to their beautiful fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. The game is, without a doubt, my favourite of 2014 and to be honest I’ve not played a better game since.

Jaws of Hakkon is the game’s first premium DLC pack adding a new story arc set within a new area to the south of Feralden called the Frostback Basin. Continue reading Dragon Age: Inquisition Jaws of Hakkon DLC PC review

Borderlands: The Hansome Collection PS4 review

Borderlands: The Hansome Collection further swells the unnervingly large catalogue of last-gen games that have been remastered for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

For this bumper package, publisher’s 2K Games have included two polished up games- 2012’s Borderlands 2 and last year’s Australian developed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! Continue reading Borderlands: The Hansome Collection PS4 review

Netflix in Oz

So I’ve been playing with the Australian Netflix for a week now.

And it’s good.

I’ve checked out a few movies, watched the Netflix exclusive Bloodlines and a few episodes of The Returned- another Netflix show. Flicking through all the content available is a bit overwhelming, but I’m starting to spend less and less time search for stuff and more time just watching.

Netflix is absolutely perfect for me. Continue reading Netflix in Oz
