Community: The Australian FGC Episode 03 – Michael “Cactus” Ashmore

community3

The third episode of Community features Michael “Cactus” Ashmore. A long time mainstay in the Melbourne FGC, the Golden Child is mild-mannered in demeanour but packs a nasty far standing fierce. He’s a strangely modest individual, scratching his beard when he beats your ass with his Dhalsim and giggling good-humouredly when you hit him with something stupid. Read More »

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies Review

phoenix_wright_dual_destinies_featured

Few games wear their Japanese heritage with the unbridled boorish gusto that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destiniesbrings to bear. Fewer still have the tenacity to declare, totally deadpan; “No, seriously guys, this is set in America,” to the point that Dual Destinies’ best joke might be the impossible contradiction of its own continued existence. Yet somehow, it works – and it works brilliantly. Read More »

Lost Planet 3 Review

Just as Devil May Cry before it, Capcom big wigs decided that this franchise, loved by a scarce few, was in need of a brand new start. In other words, the originals didn’t appeal enough to the Western market, so they’d strip it bare and tinker with it until it did, even if it was changed forever, difficult to compare with the source material. It’s an industry and money talks, so this is a sad inevitability as games developed in Japan don’t have huge appeal in the wider mainstream market. Read More »

Remember Me Review

Remember Me, like a talented but untested gymnast, starts out gracefully enough at full speed, flounders a bit mid-jump, and then lands flat on its face in the third act. It’s a game that starts with much promise but ultimately devolves into a four hour gauntlet of its worst qualities that will have you begging every approaching moment to free you from a prison that’s disguised as entertainment.

Resident Evil: Revelations Review

Resident-Evil-Revelations-featured

Revelations is easily the best Resident Evil game since Resident Evil 4 because it embraces both the creepy atmosphere of the Playstation era Resident Evils and Resident Evil 4’s gunplay. It manages to hit that sweet spot where there’s just enough action and horror to keep the player engaged thanks to tweaks the series has accumulated over its iterations, notably the improved control scheme.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Review

dragons-dogma-featured

Before you go getting all excited over this expansion I’m going to knock down your expectations a peg or two. Dark Arisen commits nearly all the atrocities of its predecessor. Missions never venture away from the standard fetch quest, characters remain as monotonous as Entourage’s Vincent Chase and your pawns repetitive dialogue still encourages you to scalp their face and pour vinegar over the remaining flesh wound.
