Fallout 4: First Impressions

This first impressions article is based on approximately 8 hours of gameplay and is spoiler free Fallout 4, the latest entry in the post-nuclear-apocalypse RPG series is easily one of the most highly anticipated titles of the last few years. Expectations were at an all-time high following Bethesda’s impressive showing at E3 this year, meaning that the final product was going to have to be extremely high class to live up to the hype. Thankfully, for the most part, it does. But it also falls painfully short in some areas.

It now seems a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but in fact it was last week, in Melbourne. A preview event for Star Wars Battlefront was hosted by EA on the first night of PAX Australia, this one to show off the fighter squadron mode for the first time in the southern hemisphere. Transport was provided in the guise of the Battlefront bus, which took the lucky few from the entrance to PAX, to the venue in North Melbourne. After some beverages and bites, it was time to get hands-on with the game. Battlefront’s Fighter […]

Review – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt (5)
9.5 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

Even in writing this, in putting a summation of my experience with the game down into words, I still don’t know how one would actually review The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red’s third instalment in the life of the titular witcher, Geralt of Rivia, is a game that feels larger than any of the behemoths one might encounter while playing.

Review – Jaws of Hakkon

9 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

If you’ve ever played a Bioware game, you know that by the time the first cutscene is over, you’re going to have a dozen new codex entries to read right off the bat. We all saw how crucial lore was in Inquisition – it was like they sharpened it and very sneakily stabbed us in the back with it. Inquisition’s first story-based DLC, Jaws of Hakkon, is now out and available for all platforms, and while it doesn’t address our elven-pantheon related questions, it does give us an extra adventure with new allies and enemies in a beautiful new area […]

Elder Scrolls Online tips for newbies

eso1

For the first time ever I have been truly drawn into the world of an MMORPG, and this is due to none other than The Elder Scrolls Online. However as a relative noob in the world of an MMO, I have to admit that I was a little bit lost at the beginning of the game. I found myself having to look for information and tips on multiple sites. And rather than keep it all to myself, I decided why not share my insights of ESO that just may help you on the road to saving Tamriel.

First Impressions – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Witcher 3 Logo

A thread runs through open worlds, holding together the collective sequences and explorable regions, existing across many games. We can venture into them with clear intent, or for the sake of finding something new. Recent trysts into digital landscapes have evolved past once pristine wonderlands, embracing entropy as something that must exist within their lands to feel authentic. A barn cannot only be modelled and rendered before it’s put before the player, but must also be designed old; aged, weathered and used. While this brings a level of authenticity to already wide worlds, some also bearing depth and height, the […]
