Review: 007 Legends

Despite the general success that the James Bond films have enjoyed over the past five decades, it seems that the video game tie-ins have never really done as well. Apart from GoldenEye 007, which was released a decade and a

When it comes to the Need For Speed franchise, there are two titles in particular that I’d love to see a sequel for -– Underground and Most Wanted. I was therefore elated at the announcement that Criterion were not only

Review: Forza Horizon

It’s always a risky decision when developers choose to take their well-established franchises down a new path. On the one hand, it’s an opportunity to re-invigorate the series and prevent it from becoming stale, but on the other, such a

For most, owning a Ferrari is a dream that few will ever fulfill. Fortunately for us, the company are absolute fiends when it comes to merchandising, so while you might not be able to afford one of their cars, you

Review: F1 2012

It’s been three years since Codemasters released F1 2010 and made Formula One a multi-platform video game franchise once again. While I’ve often had mixed views about recent Codemasters games, they’ve always treated the F1 franchise with the respect it

As most Australian gamers will know, this country is somewhat lacking when it comes to gaming expositions and conventions, to say the least. Recently, I attended the second annual EB Games Expo (the first real attempt at a large-scale gaming-based

Last Thursday we were fortunate enough to attend an exclusive Nintendo preview event before EB Expo started. While there, we were able to meet and interview Charles Martinet, the official voice of Mario himself! Let’s a go! The interview begins

To say I was a little excited when news broke at E3 2011 that Hitman: Absolution was in development is somewhat of an understatement. Having recently found a new level of respect for stealth-based action titles, it was great to

Need For Speed: Most Wanted is arguably one of my favourite titles in the franchise. It’s a game I’ve finished numerous times since it was originally released and a title I still reminisce about from time to time. Last week

Despite the fact the franchise has been around for almost two decades, Rayman is a character I’ve never really come across in the past. Recently however I checked out the latest instalment in the Rayman series, Rayman: Jungle Run for

It’s been six months since Mass Effect 3 was release, and I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that the one thing I’ve wanted most since finishing the game is more content to expand the story of Shepard further. While

It was an exciting time in the Sydney CBD a few days ago. For most people, excitement meant flocking to the city to be a part of the ticker-tape parade welcoming home our Australian Olympic athletes. For me, it was

First up, don’t forget that Steve also checked out Medal of Honor: Warfighter at E3 this year — read this to see what he thought of the game. As for me, I won’t attempt to deny it, when it comes

A few days ago, I was fortunate enough to visit Namco Bandai’s HQ in Sydney to get some hands-on time with the upcoming title from Square Enix London and United Front Games, Sleeping Dogs. Being unfamiliar with the title I

As a racing enthusiast, I feel the genre never quite receives the attention it deserves in the gaming community. Sure, we have franchises like Need For Speed and Forza Motorsport, which everyone know about, but I get the impression that

Review: DiRT Showdown

I remember when I first heard about DiRT Showdown being in development. Off the back of my disappointment with the previous two titles in the franchise (with DiRT 3 only having just been released months prior), the fact Codemasters had
