Apple has today released a Beta version of Apple Music on Google Play, for all to download and test. Of course, the app is very worthy of the Beta tag.

DISPATCHES: Wargaming wants to bring ‘Master of Orion’ to a new generation

By on

I’m not going to lie. I had never heard of Master of Orion before Wargaming emailed me about an interview opportunity with some of the Wargaming team at PAX Australia this year. However, I was interested in seeing the game because it was different to the World of Tanks/Warplanes/Warships that they are known for – and I dragged one of the TechGeek writers along to play the game while I did the interview.

HANDS ON: Below lives up to the hype with a stunning artstyle

By on

I try to avoid really dense games when I’m at a games expo, mainly because it’s hard to get invested in a beautiful world when there’s a queue behind you, but I couldn’t resist a taste of Below from Capybara Games. With a killer art-style, music by Jim Guthrie, and gameplay that’s deeper than you’d think, Below is a 2D RPG Roguelike that feels like the next big indie-treat. It’s sharp, […]

HANDS ON: FAST Racing NEO is FAST and already feels like another Wii U classic

By on

I’d never heard of FAST Racing NEO before PAX Australia 2015, and that’s a very sad thing. Mainly because it’s amazing. While behemoths Sony and Nintendo have kept classic sci-fi racers like WipEout and F-Zero in the backburner, or as I like to call it, ‘the farm’, FAST Racing NEO comes with a modern look, tight controls, and a buttery-feel, despite running on the limited Wii U hardware. The title comes from a […]

HANDS ON: In ‘GoatPunks’, it’s a matter of who can stay on top the longest

By on

I’ve got to give credit to one of my friends (Erin) for making sure I played this game before I leave PAX Australia after three long days of covering the event – otherwise, I would have surely missed out covering this game hidden in the PAX Rising section of the show floor. GoatPunks comes from Studio Canvas, a one-man game studio from the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. It is a […]
