Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Red Dead Redemption’

Red Dead Redemption

I’m beginning to feel like the last kid on the block to move up to the new generation of consoles. My social media feeds are flooded with screen shots of Destiny on PS4 and not a week goes by that someone doesn’t announce their new XBOXOne or what-have-you. So this week we’re taking a look at … Continue reading

12 Franchises We Want Telltale to Make into a Game


Telltale are the gold star recipients in the modern point and click adventure genre. A genre that produced blockbuster titles in the 90s and now only fills a small niche, Telltale kept the Monkey Island and Sam and Max flame alive. Their games based on Jurassic Park and Back to the Future were plenty of fun, but it was The Walking Dead that … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Door Kickers’

Warning: this game has crack-level addiction. But in the good way…not like Candy Crush that treats you to bright, shiny colours in response for swiping aimlessly at your phone screen. Instead it draws you back to repeat each level until you nail that perfect score. Each play through will be quick and snappy so it’s very easy … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘FTL: Faster Than Light’

FTL Advanced Edition

Sometimes we play games to relax. Sometimes we play FTL: Fast Than Light. On the outset it’s a rather plan space adventure where most encounters are in the form of text boxes and you pause the game to input battle commands. In reality it’s a nail biting, horrendously difficult race against time. And with an expansion out on … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Trine 2′


Let’s preface this by saying that Trine 2 and it’s DLC is currently on Steam for $2, reduced down from $20. This sale will only last another few hours, so don’t dilly dally. Go and get it. It’s a fab game and if you don’t actually like it then you’re not out anything more than pocket change. … Continue reading

That claim turned out to be slightly inaccurate, as it has sixteen cards a small number of red cubes. … Continue reading

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Don’t Starve’

Don't Starve

I wasn’t planning on including this title in this new series because if you were going to play it, you’d have planned it by now. But with it currently being on sale over on Steam, and the new Reign of Giants DLC being available, this is the a great time to check it out if you … Continue reading

The Australian Government VS South Park: The Stick of Truth


After hearing the positive reviews – some acknowledging that this is the rarest of video game beasts (a good adaptation of a film/television show) – I plunked down my hard earned Monopoly money (sometimes called Australian currency) and bought a copy from my local video entertainment emporium. Thusly equipped, I took the game home and played it. … Continue reading
