The Playstation is the console of choice for Naughty Dog games, weebs, and anybody who enjoys High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection screwing up their Twitch streams. Sony is famous for dodgy ads, trolling its competition and wild claims during their press conferences. We miss the days of Emotion Engine, Cell Processor, and funny gags from Sony like that PS2 games will look like Toy Story rendered in real time. The Playstation 4 started out as the best console to experience Playstation 3 remasters on, but now has developed a pretty good library of exclusive games of its own.

XCOM Enemy Unknown - Review

5 Years Ago Today, XCOM: Enemy Unknown was first released! A reboot of the then long dormant XCOM series, it reintroduced a new generation to the meticulous balance between strategy and tension the series is known for. It was tough, but one of the most rewarding games you'll ever play. Since then, it's seen expansions and re-releases on portable platforms like the Playstation Vita, iOS & Android devices. We've seen a sequel in the form of 2016's XCOM 2, which recently saw an expansion. Here's our review from 2012.

Opening the theme-park decorated “Bethesdaland” press briefing, Global VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hinds walked out on stage and promised a showcase that would be “an experience at E3 unlike anything else.” What followed was a 40 minute trailer supercut in essence that put Bethesda’s upcoming projects front and centre, highlighting how bizarre and unique (for better or worse) these games and initiatives have the potential to be. Fortunately, what lacked was a great deal of cringe, and unfortunately, this is likely what was being referred to as “unlike an...

It must be hard being the E3 king. After blowing everyone away in 2015 with Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue 3, Sony has had to maintain this newfound reputation of nonstop bombshell announcements and mic-drop moments. It managed to pull it off last year with Death Stranding, although we could all tell that the well was running dry. This year, it was obvious that Sony is starting to scrape the bottom. This was apparent with Days Gone, the open-world zombie game announced at last year’s E3. Back then it was humdrum at best and this year’s demo proved no better, highlighting its QTE com...

A new console usually brings with it unfounded grandstanding, a lot of hypothetical scenarios but little on day-to-day life with this new box. And in a year where Microsoft’s big tentpoles, Gears of War and Halo, are still being developed and where the platform partnerships seem to be going Sony’s way, you’d think that this would be the Scorpio Power Hour. Yes, we got some of that and more mentions of 4K than pixels in a 4K monitor, but this year’s Xbox Briefing somehow had even more game announcements. Starting with the showstopper, the Xbox One X (formerly Project Scorpio) is the pre...

When other companies announce their consoles they go deep into the numbers, focusing on sales figures, subscribers and teraflops. Nintendo was never one to conform with its fellow console makers, a tradition which continued when we found out the hybrid home/handheld nature of the Switch — and Friday’s full reveal was no different. Let’s get straight into the important details. The Switch will launch worldwide on 3rd March 2017 and will cost $US299 (as at writing, EB Games has the console listed for $AU469). The Switch will feature a capacitive touchscreen (more akin to a smartphone...
