    Mass Effect 3 EA Event @ Syd (22/2/12)

    One of the most anticipated releases of early 2012 is definitely Mass Effect 3, the final chapter in Bioware’s epic sci-fi masterpiece. And if what was shown at the recent Sydney preview event was any indication, the anticipation is well deserved. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with media types, and ticket winners, I was fortunate enough on Wednesday […]

    Silent Hill HD Collection Screenshots

    Silent Hill HD Collections, due for release in March 2012, on Xbox 360 and PS3, will include two games in the series – Silent Hill 2 and 3. While I am probably more interested in wandering the streets and locations of Silent Hill 2 in HD, the inclusion of Silent Hill 3 will give me […]

    Crysis Review (Xbox 360)

    Earlier on in the year gamers had the chance to suit-up and whoop some serious butt in the nano-suit V2.0. The unfortunate situation, for console gamers, was that while we could play Crysis 2 we may not have had the chance to actually try out the first game in the series (the then PC only […]

    Dragon Age 2 Demo Play – Xbox 360

    I haven’t played Dragon Age: Origins to be quite upfront. But, having heard that Dragon Age 2 had just hit the Xbox 360 in demo form I wasted little time hitting the download button. My reluctance to play the original came from an amount of time spent not playing it. You know how it goes, […]

    Future Battlefields and Warfare

    Recently we have seen a surge in first person shooter games when not so long ago it looked like a one way street towards extinction. The recent trend in part is greatly attributed to major titles such as BattleField: Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and their predecessors before. Of course […]

  • Review: Batman Arkham Asylum

    Review: Batman Arkham Asylum

    I am not the biggest fan of the game camera or occasionally having to manually position it – apart from that, it’s a great game. Download the demo atleast. In all seriousness I could just leave the review at that. In not being a fan of the ‘camera work’ (it’s really the only thing I […]
