State of the EB Expo

Too often the gaming public in Australia get shafted when it comes to games and gaming more often than not when it comes to attention from the big publishers. For a country which spans a continent, we don’t really have that large a population and it follows that as a gaming market we are small potatoes when it comes to the Asia-Pacific region. What we lack in numbers, however, we make up for in sh...

The Art of the Thriller

So at the request of some of the delightful peeps over at Paramount Pictures to celebrate the release of 10 Cloverfield Lane, and with the go-ahead of the glorious senior editors, I am going to be talking about one of the best directors within the thriller genre; Alfred Hitchcock. 10 Cloverfield Lane is a spiritual successor to the original 2008 Cloverfield movie but rather than focusing upon the ...

What the EB Games Expo Means to Australia

Over the past two decades, video games have grown from those cool little machines in the corner of your local pub, to a nerdy pastime, to part of mainstream culture, and no where is that more true than the sun-baked sands of Australia.

It’s been a while since I’ve done an article on good ol’ pen and paper role-playing games and, since the last one appeared to be quite popular, I jumped at the chance to provide an opinion on a friend’s sourcebook. I have personally met the author, Angelus Morningstar (yes, that is his name), and he has personally kicked my ass in a variety of tabletop and roleplaying games. The copy of Eidolon: T...

Cyberpunk Games to Scope Out in 2015

“Cyberpunk is what happens when you have a society that has the technology level of Star Trek… and is led by the likes of Gordon Gekko” The above is a simple definition of generic cyberpunk settings by a friend of mine. It’s short. It’s sweet. It’s full of references to pop culture. What’s not to love? Continuing on from this succinct explanation, one could easily suggest that the ‘high-tech, low-...

The Rise and Dangers of DLC

Video games are one of the wonders of our age. They bring storytelling into a new form, taking a passive form of entertainment like reading or a watching film and make it active.
