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.

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?”

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.

Video Games Review: Attack On Titan: Wings of Freedom (PS4, 2016)

Quite often we get stuck with inferior video game adaptations of TV shows and movies. It’s a rarity for any of them to accurately reflect the source material without ruining it in some form or another. Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom, is a true testament of what can be done with a team that is passionate about the source material, even if it could have benefited from some more time in development and a little more variety.

Video Games Review: Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens (PS4, 2016)

I feel like I owe The Force Awakens a pretty significant debt. It’s not only brought the Star Wars franchise back to life in the post-prequels era but now it’s returning the license to the Lego series to lift them out of their slump following Lego Marvel’s Avengers. This new entry in the Lego series is amongst the its very best — fun and funny, smartly paced and demonstrating a clear desire to bring something new to the series.
