Cheap Game Tuesday – ‘The Binding of Isaac’

Binding of Isaac

It’s an expensive time to be a gamer, especially in Australia. A Triple-A new release is going to set you back around $110, and that’s without the bonus editions and downloads and whatever else. It’s little wonder the trade scams are flourishing - swapping in finished titles is the only way to afford new games. In … Continue reading

Metal Gear 2

As we make our way through the Metal Gear Solid Legacy collection we learn that while Famincon’s Metal Gear planted the roots of the franchise it’s the MSX2 release Metal Gear 2 that saw the concept grow in to the series we know today.

I just finished up with Metal Gear Rising: Revengence (which totally isn’t a word no matter how much you want it to be) and decided to revisit the past with the Metal Gear Solid Legacy collection, compiling eight games from the series dating back to 1987.

Game Review: ‘Octodad: The Dadliest Catch’

OctodadTrailer2

This game is…quirky. Genuinely quirky, not the Zooey Deschanel marketing quirky. You play a husband and father who is going about his day to day. Making coffee, doing the groceries, and so on. This man, however, has a secret. He’s an octopus. Literally an octopus, wearing a suit and posing as a human. There’s a … Continue reading

X-Box One Review

XboxOne1

In the console war, there are X-Box fans, and there are Playstation fans. South Park has documented this rather thoroughly over the past couple weeks. I am an X-Box fan. I wasn’t initially planning on getting the X-Box One at launch, but I did. Impulsively. I impulsively spent 532 dollars (plus a little more for … Continue reading
