The Talos Principle PC review

As gamers we live in exciting times. As lucky as we are to be able to enjoy the latest iteration of Far Cry and Call of Duty we also, one in a while, get the opportunity to try something a little different, something like The Talos Principle.

Coming to us from Croteam, the Croation developer that gave us the insane Serious Sam, The Talos Principle is a rather clever first-person puzzle game that asks us to ponder what exactly it is to be a human being. Continue reading The Talos Principle PC review

Why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is probably going to blow you away

So there I sat, with the lovely animated intro to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt playing out in front of me, about to embark on the first three hours of CD Projekt RED’s RPG threequel.

The Witcher: Wild Hunt is one of the year’s most eagerly awaited games. Originally due for release in 2014, the game was initially delayed until February 2015, before being pushed back to 19 May.

Whilst I’d seen the game in action a few times, this three hour preview was to be my first time actually hands-on and in control of the witcher, Geralt of Rivia for his third outing. Continue reading Why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is probably going to blow you away

For well over a year Polish developer CD Projekt RED have been teasing me with snippets from Geralt of Rivia’s next outing.

At E3 I saw the now famous griffin hunt demo during a special behind closed doors preview. At the Australian EB Expo I was treated to an expanded live demo of the same griffin sequence during a special theatre presentation. Continue reading The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hands-on preview

Dying Light: horrifying for all the wrong reasons?

I love zombies. There’s something about them that has been scaring the pants of me since I first accidentally watched Zombie Flesh Eaters aged eleven.

Recently I’ve started be bothered by zombies for an entirely different reason, namely Techland’s Dying Light.

I first played Dying Light at Sydney’s EB Expo back in 2013. Being mindful that this was a few months before the release of the Xbox One, so I’d yet to really see what the “next-gen” was capable of. Dying Light looked good, even in this alpha stage. Continue reading Dying Light: horrifying for all the wrong reasons?

Big changes for The Elder Scrolls Online

Bethesda have finally ended weeks of speculation on the future of their fantasy massively multiplayer online game, The Elder Scrolls Online.

Just after Christmas it was reported that several Australian retailers were pulling stock of the game and the prepaid subscription cards from their shelves. This was explained as being just routine stock rotation exercise, but didn’t stop the rumours that the game was going free-to-play. Continue reading Big changes for The Elder Scrolls Online
