CAN I PLAY THE UNCHARTED IN FRONT OF THE KIDS?

Parent gaming considerations for the Uncharted series, including Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Being a gamer with kids, gaming time is limited. So when I can pop something on when the kids are around I always need to make sure it is something that is appropriate. Sometimes there are games that on the surface are not suitable for kids, but are fine if played in a certain way, like GTA V, Nier: Automata or Horizon: Zero Dawn (to a certain extent). Here I’ll be giving my considerations and concessions for the phenomenal Uncharted series of games, including the most recent entries, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. There will be no story spoilers! Concession 1: Experience the story first I can't make this recommendation strongly enough. Each game in the Uncharted series tells a story you'll really want to follow. Having little ones around will inevitably lead to you missing the quips and banter between the characters, something that will take away from the brilliance of the games, particularly Uncharted 1 to 4 with the often hilarious Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher back and forth. Being familiar with the story will also help with Concession 2 below, but more on that soon. The Uncharted games aren't particularly long. Uncharted 4 tops the list at about a 15 hour playthrough. Now as a parent gamer,…

DICE AWARDS 2017 WINNERS

The DICE Awards 2017 (for games from 2016) were held on the 23rd February at the The Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) celebrated their 20th year of the award show. Since 1996, the D.I.C.E. Awards have recognized games, individuals and development teams that have contributed to the advancement of the multi-billion dollar worldwide entertainment software industry. The D.I.C.E. Awards are the most credible, respected and recognized awards for the interactive entertainment community with voting cast by members of the Academy’s 33,000+ membership base. The voting process is supervised and certified by Votenet Solutions, Inc. interactive.org The show was hosted by Greg Miller and Jessica Chobot. They did a good job, although were underutilized and given no favours by the poor crowd responses (or maybe just an audio issue). There was hardly a laugh heard from the audience in the opening address, which had some really funny moments to it. The DICE Awards 2017 started off with an incredible diorama created by Noodle House. Besides this opening though, the whole show was less flashy than The Game Awards, so you might prefer just to check out the winners below. Now most of the awards were not a surprise, with Overwatch taking home yet again another Game of the Year award, racing gaming going to Forza Horizon 3, Uncharted 4…

IGN SELECT AWARDS 2016

More than just an awards show On Friday 3rd February, we had the chance to go to the IGN Select Awards 2016 at the International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour (Sydney, Australia). At the IGN Select Awards 2016, attendees had the chance to play many of the nominated games. These included Doom, Uncharted 4, Inside, Call of Duty and more. There were also a few unreleased titles, the most well known of the lot being For Honor and the new Tekken. There were also a bunch of unreleased indie games. This is where we found our next Overcooked, the aptly titled Think of the Children. Besides the awesome company, playing this gem of a game was our highlight of the IGN Select Awards 2016.  And the Winner Is... https://youtu.be/3qGgvQeVqwA Best Visual Design: Uncharted 4 Best Audio: Battlefield 1 Best Game Design: Overwatch Best Storytelling: Uncharted 4 Best Online: Overwatch Best Original Game: Overwatch IGN Editors Choice: Forza Horizon 3 Game of the Year: Uncharted 4 You can listen to us talk about the IGN Select Awards 2016 on our latest podcast, IGN Select Awards and RTX Sydney Weekend.

PLAYSTATION STORE JANUARY SALE: OUR PICKS
One of Jono's top 3 of 2016

PLAYSTATION STORE JANUARY SALE: OUR PICKS

Now this is a sale! As mentioned in my post from earlier in the day about the Xbox Countdown Sale, we get the raw end of the stick when it comes to digital games pricing in Australia, so thank goodness for sales like the PlayStation Store January Sale. From the PlayStation blog: You can save up to 60% on a huge number of titles across PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. In fact, the list is so long it’s too big to fit in this blog post, so see below for a selection of titles in each category, and then head to the January Sale page on PlayStation Store to see the 100s of other offers available! Note, some games will only be available in the sale for a limited time only, so don’t miss out. There is a HUGE listing of games in the PlayStation Store January Sale, from good pricing on full retail games to indie gems too good to pass up. My top picks would have to be my personal game of the year, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End for AUD$40, DOOM for $AUD25 and the Batman - The Telltale Series Season Pass for a few cents under AUD$18. I happily picked up Transistor for a measly AUD$7.55. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBuxUmT9fx4 Jono would be pointing you towards one of his top 3 games of 2016, X-Com…

PLAYSTATION EXPERIENCE CONFERENCE 2016 HIGHLIGHTS

UNCHARTED AND CRASH MAKE AN APPEARANCE ON PLAYSTATION 4 The folks at PlayStation put on one heck of a jam-packed show with this year's PlayStation Experience conference. With about 40 games shown, many for the first time, there was a lot for gamers of all interests. There are ways to watch the whole thing online, but to save you time and from you having to listen to the incessant yelling from one woman who obviously was sitting way too close to a microphone, here are my personal highlights of the show. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Unmistakably Uncharted from the get go, although the Tomb Raideresque pat down was surely on purpose to try and throw people. Expanding the universe of Uncharted, yes please! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZjx5ao7alw Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite Seeing Ryu and Mega Man going to battle together against Iron Man and Captain Marvel is fan service at its best. This is one of our favourite franchises at Versus Player and we can’t wait! Oh... and Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is available RIGHT NOW on the PS Store! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpQ_l1XHL_g Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy The fan service continues with a beautiful looking remaster of the three original Crash Bandicoot games. I was kinda hoping for a tease of Crash Team Racing. There is always PSX 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7G91RjVmvk Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Final Demo Another of many AVAILABLE…
