In last week’s post, I talked about my first 25 years and what I wanted to achieve in life. This week I just watched some movies. Continue reading »
Microsoft unveiled more details of the upcoming Windows 10 OS in a media briefing on Thursday morning local time.
The new operating system will mark a renewed push to integrating gaming with Windows. The highlight from this will be the ability to stream Xbox One gameplay onto a local Windows 10 computer or tablet. Selected games will also support cross-platform gameplay between Xbox One and PC versions; the first title to feature this will be Fable Legends. Microsoft has not confirmed if cross-buy support will also be implemented. Continue reading »
In a surprising announcement, Nintendo announced that it will be shutting down its Club Nintendo loyalty service worldwide by September 30th 2015. The service, which launched in Australia and New Zealand in 2008 with the launch of Mario Kart Wii, encouraged users who purchased Nintendo games and hardware to register via the Club Nintendo website in exchange for stars, to be used for exclusive goods and software.

This week I turned 25 years old. This meant a number of things for me, including, for the purposes of this blog, a Blu-ray player. Just what I needed: Another excuse not to use the SBS On Demand service, the one this blog was originally intended for. Oh well. So far I’ve only watched one Blu-ray (more on that later), but I’m keen to sink my teeth into my growing collection.
I really only had one goal that I wanted to achieve by the age of 25, and that was to direct a feature film. While I haven’t reached it, I’ve still achieved more than I thought I would. I’ve been involved in a huge variety of projects ranging from short films, to plays, to radio, to this blog, to docos, to a number of feature films and to three television shows. It’s funny where life can take you, even at a rather young age. Continue reading »
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has been Refused Classification in Australia, effectively banning it from local sale. The Australian Classification Board reached this decision last Wednesday.
The Board currently cites the National Classification Code, stating that games which “depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified.”
Publisher Devolver Digital has released a statement on the decision, which has been included below. Continue reading »
Nintendo has kicked off the year with a stunning Direct presentation. From release dates for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Majora’s Mask to a bunch of new game announcements, the Direct ran for three quarters of an hour and revealed tons of information about already known games and revealed a few new ones!
Rockstar Games has delayed the release of the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V to 24 March. GTAV PC was previously scheduled for release on January 27; before this, it was intended to launch with the Playstation 4 and Xbox One editions.
“Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be,” said the company on its Newswire, “Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice we make only when we know it is in the best interests of the game and our fans. Thanks everyone for your understanding and we assure you these few extra weeks will be worth it when the game does arrive in March.” Continue reading »
With the new year already underway, Microsoft have taken it upon themselves to announce one of their big tentpole titles for 2015; Forza Motorsport 6. It’ll be arriving exclusively on the Xbox One in 2015, presumably in the final quarter of the year. Continue reading »
So I only watched four films this week. Rather pitiful to be honest. This week has been exhausting with work. It turns out that people like seeing movies while on holidays. Who would of imagined that!?
It was also the week that I started on one of my christmas gifts, Bioshock Infinite. It was our editor Don’s Game of 2013, so I’m sure he doesn’t mind that this article is late and is a few reviews short…right Don? (Editor’s note: Only if you watch Orphan Black)
It’s been a while since a game has kept me from watching a movie or TV show or reading a comic — it’s nice. Continue reading »
