Christine

Christine began gaming in the days of the NES and has been a fan ever since. She plays almost any genre of games but is partial to RPG, action-adventure and shooters. Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Borderlands are some of her favourite series. She also has a love-hate relationship with Assassin's Creed, and a very shameful addiction to all things Final Fantasy. When she's not playing games, or writing about them, or working on the Save Game website, she's probably rearranging her display of gaming collectables.

Review: Sunset Overdrive

SO1
8.5 out of 10 Great

When one thinks of a zombie apocalypse, a vibrant metropolis crawling energy drink–infused mutations usually would not be among the first visuals to come to mind, but that’s exactly what Sunset Overdrive is. The latest title by developer Insomniac Games takes the tired trope and supercharges it in a third-person shooter with colourful characters, fast-paced platforming and the most unlikely of projectile launchers that pass as weapons.

One of the indie games that stole the show at PAX Australia this year was a little game called Never Alone (Kisima Inŋitchuŋa).

Appreciating Destiny as an FPS (It’s All About Loot)

Destiny_20140918215758

Destiny has been likened to a lot of things, with the most common opinion dubbing the game as an MMO. Personally, I’ve thought of it as a blend between Halo, Borderlands and Diablo III. Halo, well, because Bungie. Borderlands because this game was one of the first to blend the first person shooter genre with role-playing mechanics, complete with class systems, levelling and—of course—bountiful loot.

Sure, players can brave the hordes of enemies alone, but the appeal of both Destiny and Diablo III that keeps drawing […]
