E3 is right around the corner, and its that time of the year where the biggest names in gaming get a chance to show off what they’ve been working on. For the majority of us who aren’t able to go to the actual event in LA, the press conferences have always been livestreamed.

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 […]

Team Cherry are a developer group from Adelaide who created the basis for Hollow Knight in response to the Game Jam prompt “beneath the surface.” I chatted […]

HANDS ON: FAST Racing NEO – The current generation version of F-Zero

By on

At PAX Australia, Nintendo was showcasing FAST Racing NEO, an upcoming racing game by Shin’en. The game is heavily inspired by one of Nintendo’s well-known franchises – F-Zero, featuring similar setting and overtones. Set in the far future, racing has evolved into something completely different, from cars on a track to high-speed anti-gravity ships, where racing has included death defining jumps with deadly obstructions along the track, and racers aiming for the coveted first […]

First Impressions: Yo-Kai Watch is a post-millennial Pokemon

By on

I don’t know what Yo-Kai Watch is, but millions of kids do, and therefore I checked it out because I want to know what the kids are up to. But I still didn’t really get it. Released to Japan in 2013, the game is accompanied by a Manga series, a TV show, and plenty of other hot merch. It’s the Star Wars of anime, destined to be a hit. And […]
