Let me tell you about why I love PAX Aus

“Shit, have they capped the line?” wondered a 20-something woman in a home made Bayonetta cosplay, arriving only minutes before Saturday night’s Let’s Play Some Bad Dating Sims panel in the Galah Theatre. Her boyfriend, dressed less ambitiously in a tee and jeans, stared hopelessly at the line.

“Guys!” I called excitedly from my position in line, “Over here!” Continue reading Let me tell you about why I love PAX Aus

Our weekend with the SNES Classic Mini

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Mini released around the world over the weekend to rapturous applause from longtime SNES devotees, packing a ton of nostalgia into an extremely small package.

Thus, I was prepared to brave the crowds and throw elbows to get one on launch day. Continue reading Our weekend with the SNES Classic Mini

WWE Live: Sydney Is A Smashing Good Time

For those who’ve yet to experience WWE Live, it can described in few words – an absolutely smashing time, in more ways than one. Having attended past events, I knew what I was in for when the lovely folks at 2K Games invited me along to enjoy the show in Sydney this past Friday, but that absolutely didn’t stop me from enjoying the spectacle wholeheartedly. In fact, I would posit that this year’s experience was far superior to the last, despite what I perceived to be a lesser card. Gone were the over-the-top slapstick antics of 2016, replaced by solid, fun wrestling matches that had the crowd cheering, screaming and booing all throughout the night.

The resignation came following the discovery that he had never formally renounced his New Zealand dual citizenship before running in the 2016 federal election. With Ludlam’s departure, the only voice the Australian games industry had in anything close to federal government is silenced.
