Know it All Kickstarter


Howard Phillips comes across in his Kickstarter video and his Twitter account as someone who is very aware of his place in video game history. As Nintendo’s “The Man Who Plays Video Games For A Living”, Phillips had the job that any kid my age in the late 80’s wanted to have. Although he was the public face of Nintendo of America, most remember the cartoon version of himself from the Howard and Nester comics, a single sheet comic found in Nintendo Power where Howard would teach Nester important tricks like how to exploit the 1-up loop in Ninja Gaiden.

EB Games Expo – Call of Duty Black Ops II


If there was one booth at EB Games Expo 2012 where you were guaranteed to see a huge crowd – it was the Activision booth. Whenever I glanced over, there were a sea of people clustered around their booth and they were there for one thing: hands on time with Call of Duty Black Ops II. I was fortunate to attend a special Black Ops II media event on the eve of the Expo where I was given a special preview of both the single player and multiplayer aspects of Activision and Treyarch’s most anticipated upcoming release. Read on for […]

EB Games Expo 2012 – Overall Thoughts


October 5th-7th – EB Games Expo – three days in the calendar year that formed what was without a doubt the biggest event in the Australian gaming industry for 2012. They may have only constituted less than 72 hours, but what an amazing 72 hours they were. From the games on show to the special presentation at EB Live and the Community Hub to the exclusive screenings in the Madman Theatre – there was a mind-boggling amount of video game related content for all ages and gamers. And I was there for it all.

EA Australia Medal of Honor Warfighter Event – Tanks for the Memories


0400. I haul myself from the warm comfort of my bed, my body protesting with every moment. It’s pitch black, I’ve had barely three hours sleep and whilst I don’t know much about what is ahead for me during the next few hours, I know it’s going to be physically demanding. EA Games – the organisers of this super secret event – have told me this much. But I expect what my mind envisons could potentially take place is far worse than what is actually planned. At least, I hope it is.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Hands On


The other week I was lucky enough to score an opportunity to try my hand at Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Yes, we all know it’s a bit of a silly name. Word has put a little red squiggly line under it, used normally to point out an error, but this time there’s a little judgement there. If Clippy was still around he’d smugly put his two cents in “You do know that’s not a word, right?” Stay out of it, Clippy. It was actually a lot of fun.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive – Beta Impressions


The fear in updating classic games such as Counter Strike (1.6 and Source) is that the well honed game mechanics, or even just the “feel” of the game, will be irrevocably changed. Counter Strike 1.6 still has a strong following and is still included in tournaments, and Counter Strike: Source has a massive following on Steam.
