Video Games Review: Puyo Puyo Tetris (Switch, 2017)

Hoo boy. This review is gonna be all over the place. It’s going to be this way because this game, even as a concept, is all over the place.

You would think that, given that Tetris is already the most grueling activity a person can engage in, interrupting it with a quick round of the colour-matcher Puyo Puyo would be as if someone was doing you a huge favour. In practice, it feels like even more work.

Video Game Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk (PS4, 2017) is a bloody good time marred by repetitive design

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk bases its narrative on the popular and long-running manga series of the same name. It’s only natural that such a franchise would eventually be adopted into the gaming sphere. Further, Berserk‘s gory and action-oriented nature seem like they’d be the perfect ingredients for a Dynasty Warriors style beat ’em up, however there is definitely more style here than there is substance. That’s a shame, because there are sections of this title well worth playing, but the rest is plagued with repetition.

Keys to the Kingdom: What You Need To Know For Kingdom Hearts 2.8 And Beyond

When I first played Kingdom Hearts, it was an unforgettable experience. I loved the world and all of its characters, both new and familiar, and the story was so deep and intricate that I found myself absorbed. At the time, Kingdom Hearts was a stand-alone game, but in the years since, its world has grown, with multiple sequels, prequels and spin-offs joining the franchise, each with their own unique stories and characters.

Where and when to watch the PlayStation Experience keynote address if you live in Australia

Gearing up for a huge two-day event at the Anaheim Convention Center in Los Angeles is the annual PlayStation Experience conference, the one day in which Sony’s gaming arm opens the doors to press and punters alike and gives a run down of the year that was, and what the next six months holds. “But I’m in Australia,” we hear you groan, “How can I see all the good stuff without having to put on pants?”

Relax, fam, we’ve got you covered. Continue reading Where and when to watch the PlayStation Experience keynote address if you live in Australia

Video Games Review: Dragon Quest Builders (PS4, 2016)

Dragon Quest is one of the most venerable franchises in the history of video game role players. In its homeland of Japan, the series has spent its lifetime frequently and handily beating the sales all other comers, even genre titans like Final Fantasy, but in recent years has seen a bit of a drop off as new titles have become fewer and farther between. Following a big push toward handheld and the release of a surprisingly successful MMO on the Wii, developer (and proud owner of The Most Corporate-Sounding Developer Name of All Time) Square Enix Business Division 5 is looking to take the series’ renewed momentum and capture the attention of the Minecraft generation with Dragon Quest Builders.
