Transparency Notes: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has support for Amiibo figurines. In order to test these features several figures were bought out of pocket. This review is based off of the retail version not provided by the publisher. About a month or so ago I took a look at Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. I won't rehash my thoughts on the game, but I did state that the game's bigger console version h... more.

To say that BioWare has redeemed the Dragon Age series after the troubled rushed production that was Dragon Age 2 is an understatement. Not only is Inquisition their largest production to date, not only is it one of their most ambitious projects, but it's also the premiere of their dark fantasy RPG series on the new generation of consoles. And despite some pretty glaring issues, this installment m... more.

To those few but dedicated Wii U lovers out there, Mario Kart 8 came out with the first of two planned packs of DLC. Since this is review season and the holidays are right around the corner, in lieu of an official review, I'm just going to be upfront and tell you why I think, in no particular order, the pack is just plain fun and worth going back to the wacky kart racer. Old Tracks Have Come... more.

They say there are three things in life that are certain: the sun goes does each night, comes up each morning, and we all die eventually. You could argue that there is now a fourth, every November Call of Duty is released to the masses and it sells like hotcakes regardless of how little is done to change it. This year is no different except with preorders down compared to previous outings. However... more.

In case you haven't read recently, Assassin's Creed: Unity is kind of a buggy mess. Graphical glitches and framerate problems have been reported across both PS4 and Xbox One versions. Ubisoft have officially apologized for releasing the game in such a state and are currently working around the clock to fix and update the experience. In some ways, this is a good sign. Assassin's Creed is a very po... more.

I desperately want to like Assassin's Creed: Unity. Ubisoft's popular historical fiction sandbox series has always, despite ups and down throughout the years, been able to make something technically novel that can keep my attention for many hours. Yet, despite the many improvements to the formula, Unity somehow manages to be not just a poor next-gen experience but one of the weaker installments in... more.

The explosive growth seen in the online pokie craze was not unexpected. Australian's have for a long time now been playing pokies at land based casinos and pokie parlours across Australia. The ease of playing online coupled with the anonymity as well as the sheer variety have become powerful motivators to draw Aussies away from conventional establishments where they might normally play pokies. Pl... more.

In 2009, Platinum Games' Bayonetta became one of the newest benchmarks of high adrenaline action brawler games and a pleasant mainstream success for the team. It didn't sell as much as the newest Call of Duty but thanks to some watertight combat and an entire marketing campaign showing off Bayonetta, both in terms of sex appeal and her ability to kick tail, an audience came. When you have very elo... more.

The two worlds might seem conceptually opposed, but there are actually a lot of similarities between the industries. Beyond the fact that both offer a digital escape from the boredom of reality, mobile betting apps and the gaming world's equivalent take a lot of inspiration from each other. One obvious area in which mobile betting operators such as Unibet have taken some pointers from the gaming ... more.

The Legend of Korra being produced by Platinum Games should be a match made in heaven. You have the source material of one of the most popular and entertaining animated martial arts fantasy shows ever combined with the skill and mayhem of the studio that brought us brawling masterpieces like Bayonetta and God Hand. And with an original story written by the creators of the show and sold at a discou... more.

Consumer facing industries are and will always be prone to criticism from a variety of vocal sources, and as such it’s expected that pretty much any company worth its salt will likely endeavour to provide a high level of customer service, lest it tempt the ire of the unhappy customer. There has always been one industry, however, that has always garnered a terrible reputation for providing truly ... more.

Transparency Disclaimer: I’d like to point out my experience with Project Spark was not with the free to play version and was instead with the retail edition. While the experience is much the same, the additions from the retail bundle do open it up quicker. These days when one thinks about a creation game, your first thoughts are either Little Big Planet or Minecraft. Let’s just knock that on... more.
