Games Review: The Inpatient (PSVR, 2018): Give me the bad news, doc

The Inpatient for PlayStation VR is a psychological horror game designed by Supermassive Games, who were the minds behind the awesome PS4 exclusive Until Dawn and is set 60 years before that aforementioned title. Those merits alone will sell the game to VR enthusiasts and horror buffs such as myself. After the VR games Resident Evil 7 and Supermassive’s own Rush of Blood, the bar was left high for Supermassive Games second VR title The Inpatient.

Games Review: Bayonetta (Nintendo Switch, 2018): Still got it, baby

It’s hard to imagine that Bayonetta was released nearly 10 years-ago now and the apparently superior sequel Bayonetta 2 was 4 years ago! With the newly released Switch port arriving this month, for the most part, it honestly feels like it was made for it today, it just ages well and for a guy that never played the original or any of its other ports (Xbox 360, PS3 etc..) it holds up pretty well in 2018 and even more so when I can take it with me to work, I mean for a drive!?

Games Review: Dragon Quest Builders (Switch, 2018): Portable construction and crunch

Dragon Quest Builders returns for the Nintendo Switch and if you missed it like I did the first few times around, it’s worth a dip in this craft-em-up meets RPG hybrid. Originally released on PS3, PS Vita and then PS4, it has definitely done the rounds, but has developer Division 5 used that time to change or update the game in any way?

Interview: First Girl I Loved Director Kerem Sanga on marriage equality and the film’s Australian release

When First Girl I Loved screened in September 2016 as part of the 4th annual Queer Screen Film Fest in Sydney, I was initially disappointed by the film’s second half (read more in my original review). It wasn’t because it was bad film, far from it, however, it was because I had no idea what to expect and was left with the feeling of being cheated by the movie’s second half. When going in for a second viewing, however, I came to realise that the unexpected quality of First Girl I Loved is what makes it thought provoking and powerful, staying with you long after you leave the cinema....
