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 […]

So the Battlefield: Hardline open beta has come and gone and I managed to play more than a couple of rounds to truly get a grasp about just how the game plays and and feels. I have killed cops and criminals, stolen cars and blown them up, and I have protected and robbed a bank too many times to count… and it was all a hell of a lot of fun!

Battlefield Hardline’s new beta is set to drop in less than twenty-four hours across PC, Xbox and Playstation platforms. While rumours of the beta leaked on reddit early last week, attributed to YouTube presenters in EA’s Ronku program, it was only in the past few days that there was date confirmation on the Battlefield site, as well as details of exactly what’s in. Save Game had a sneak preview of the beta content at an event at the Sydney Justice and Police Museum, hosted by EA’s community team and Visceral Games.

evolve-cornered

Evolve is the next game from Turtle Rock Studios, due out in February this year. As a co-operative and competitive class-based shooter, it pits a team of four hunters against a lone monster, but instead of hunting down a predictable AI opponent, it’s another player that’s at the reins as the threat/target.

I had the privilege of being invited by 2K Australia to see the latest beta, play against some of the developers, and ask a few questions about […]

One of the indie games that stole the show at PAX Australia this year was a little game called Never Alone (Kisima Inŋitchuŋa). At a glance, it may seem like a standard puzzle platformer but it’s conception is what makes this game so incredibly unique. Developed by Upper One Games in consultation with Alaska Native elders, Never Alone is a way of preserving historical and cultural stories that were once simply passed through generations by storytelling.
