PAX AUS Interview – Blowfish on Gunscape

Posted by Joel Guttenberg On Saturday 1 November 2014ADD COMMENTS

If PAX 2013 was good for one reason (pro-tip: it was good for many reasons), it was for introducing local to a bunch of wonderful indie developed titles available for our enjoyment. This year promises to be no different with another batch of strong indie offerings.

Blowfish Studios has procured a spot in the limelight of the Australian Indie Showcase with its new title, Gunscape. Not satisfied with merely bringing gamers a new FPS, Blowfish will deliver an FPS creator with Gunscape. Ah, when art meets violence.

We are thankful that, “chief dude”, Ben Lee, was able to take time out of his busy schedule to tell us a little about Gunscape and Blowfish’s involvement in PAX this year. Read the rest of this entry »

Shadow Warrior Review

Posted by Dylan Burns On Wednesday 29 October 2014ADD COMMENTS

Available on PS4, XBO, PC l Published by Devolver Digital l Developed by Flying Wild Hog l Classified R18+ l Supports 1 player

REVIEW IN BRIEF > A well-honed shooter-slasher hybrid, Shadow Warrior hearkens back to times when level doors required keys and off-screen wisecracks were compulsory. The gameplay is satisfying and varied enough to pull you through the uncomplicated adventure. With plenty of upgrade paths to fill and heaps of weapons, each of which combines perfectly with the sword, Shadow Warrior fulfils its brief as a light-hearted action ride without overstepping its ambition.

Space is rapidly filling up

Posted by Matthew Hewson On Tuesday 28 October 2014ADD COMMENTS

It seems that the once dead genre of space sims has had a breath of life pumped into it. Along with the stupidly successful crowd funding campaign associated with Star Citizen, gamers also have a new Elite game, Dreadnaught and No Mans Sky to look forward to. Well, now there is another game to add to that list. Rebel Galaxy has just been announced by Double Damage Games and it looks to add a capital spin on the traditional space combat sim.

Rebel Galaxy promises the ability to captain a massive ship where you will battle pirates, explore the universe and basically make your presence known. There will be a freedom to play the game how you would like with the ability to be a trader, pirate, privateer or a combination of all three. These features should help Rebel Galaxy stand apart from the rest of the pack and hopefully help it find its own niche.

The game is due for release on PC, PS4 and possibly Xbox One sometime in 2015. Now with all this renewed interest in space surely I can finally get a new X-Wing game and I can stop nagging on Twitter for it.

Infamous: First Light Review

Posted by Stevie McDonald On Monday 27 October 2014ADD COMMENTS

Available on PS4 l Published by Sony l Developed by Sucker Punch l Classified M l Supports 1 player

REVIEW IN BRIEF > A standalone expansion for Infamous: Second Son, this is a miniature serving of entertainment that just barely meets the requirements. A peculiar mix of fantastic setting and weak mechanics, appealing heroine and disappointing story, First Light is worth the few hours it takes to complete it – but only just.
