The one thing everybody missed about Far Cry 3

A great deal has already been said about Far Cry 3. The excellent performance of Michael Mando as Vaas, the balance of stealth and action gameplay and the need to kill more animals than Cruella de Vil to make a wallet and backpack have all been written about on numerous other websites in great detail. It has received a cornucopia of nines, tens as well as dozens of awards and nominations.   Yet amongst all these accolades and awards, something has been missed. Rook island is filled with Read more [...]

The kindawesome PAX Roundup

Never before have I played such wildly different games in such a short space of time. Within one day I went from playing the indie title Blunt Instrument on the Occulus Rift to playing the board game Munchkins Apocalypse. The variety of games on show was amazing, and no matter what kind of gamer you were, there was something at PAX Australia for you to get excited about.   For me, there was one moment that really summed up the feeling of PAX Australia. I was in the board game free play Read more [...]

Pikmin 3

Pikmin 3

Nintendo are a funny lot. They like to neglect a lot of their properties whilst flogging poor Mario like an Atlanta stripper. For every Star Fox or Donkey Kong you'll usually get a hundred or so Mario games and, whilst Mario games are generally quite good, it's forgivable for even a hardcore fan to say they're getting sick of them.

New Luigi U

Ok, so let's face it, Mario games are a dime a dozen and the market has been FLOODED with the red capped, moustachioed tradesman recently and, for the most part, they are pretty good but there is such a thing as "too much of a good thing," especially when there are sooooo many Nintendo properties that do not get the exposure they deserve *cough* Metroid *cough*. So when Nintendo proclaimed "2013 is the year of Luigi," I have to admit, I kind of cringed. Luigi games. Luigi games? Really? It turns out Read more [...]

Digital Vs. Physical

With the Steam sale currently in full swing, I think now is a good time to bring up the discussion of Digital vs. Physical.  Keep in mind that in this post I’m not going to be discussing things such as the whole Steam as DRM thing, I’ve already done a short piece on that topic for my blog, I just want to talk about the, let’s say, emotional attachment to a Digital or Physical collection. Well straight up I’m going to say that I think a physical collection is preferable to a digital Read more [...]

Steven Moffat Haters, My Body is Ready.

**Possible Spoilers** Hey gang, before I start out on this article, I want to stress, as I always do, that this is my personal opinion. This, more than other topics, I think may cause me to receive a lot of hate mail. But to the haters out there all I have to say is, I don’t give a Moffat….oh yes, I went there. So lately, well not lately, since season 5, there have been a number of people out there who hate, and I’m talking 3-year-old-being-forced-to-eat-vegetables hate, Steven Moffat. Read more [...]

No really meanwhile in Japan...

Tokyo vs Osaka

It’s an age old debate for those who come to Japan and particularly for those who live here. Of the two most well know cities in Japan, which is better, Tokyo or Osaka. After living here now for the best part of a year and having been to both locations, I feel that I might share my two yen on this one (see what I did there). I just want to say from the outset, that everything I write here is just my personal opinion and if you think differently I totally respect it BUT GET OUT! Read more [...]

The Newbies Speed Running Experience

Before I start saying anything about the topic at hand, I’ll give a quick introduction to myself as I’m new to this site. I’m Taurinensis, a charity blogger who has been very kindly invited by this site’s staff to come and write stuff from time to time on various topics. I’m big on video games so expect a lot of over-opinionated rants in the future. So with that out of the way I can finally talk about the thing I said I was going to talk about in the title, Speed Running. Read more [...]
