Oh, what a BigWorld!

Peer behind the gamedev curtain in the merry old land of AUS. Somewhere on the middle place between the CBD and the inner treads of suburbia, on a tributary that snakes away from Broadway, there is a particular office block, with nothing to distinguish it from its neighbours. A short stroll from Sydney’s Broadway Shopping Centre, it’s only from the inside that the premises begin to stand apart. For the most part the interior is atypical of any other IT company, but little touches on the walls and in the decor slowly align the place with the concocted motif of […]

Interview – Ben O’Brien, BigHeadMode and Bonus Stage

On a dark night, in the last days of… July, I went to an event that’s undoubtedly a celebration of gaming culture. That would be Bonus Stage. The live gaming-themed variety show is the somewhat unseemly love-child of Carlo Ritchie and Ben O’Brien. In advance of their next show, I had the chance to speak with Bonus Stage’s O’Brien this week, and ask him a few serious (and many not-so-serious) questions.

Review: Until Dawn

8.5 out of 10 Great Recommended

Until Dawn is the epitome of a slow-burning sleeper hit. Developed by Supermassive Games, this choose-your-own-adventure love letter to 90’s horror arrived on the PS4 with relatively little hype and a lot of detractors prior to release, but has rightfully earned considerable praise and popularity. Until Dawn has slick presentation, engaging writing and gameplay focused on player choice.Highly addictive entertainment, memorable moments and lovingly-crafted atmosphere make it easy to put up with shortcomings, and mean the game can expect to feature in numerous “Best of 2015” lists.

Review – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

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.
