Burnout Paradise Remastered - The TAY Review Burnout Paradise Remastered - The TAY Review

2008's Burnout Paradise was a massive shift for Criterion Games’ flagship racing series, and the remaster by Stellar Entertainment is a solid celebration of its 10th anniversary. If you didn’t like it the first time, nothing’s changed, but this is the definitive way to jump into the game.

No Man's Sky: The Journey Home No Man's Sky: The Journey Home

This is an ongoing log where I chronicle the events that befall me in No Man’s Sky as I travel all the way back to my starting world, in first-person. I hope you enjoy!

Lara Croft GO: The TAY Review Lara Croft GO: The TAY Review

Lara Croft GO, the second game in Square Enix’s GO line of mobile puzzlers with the characters and tropes of Tomb Raider, Hitman and Deus Ex, is an incredibly well-made game that showcases what makes the GO games so brilliant.

I Did the Only Ratchet & Clank Screening in New Zealand I Did the Only Ratchet & Clank Screening in New Zealand

In early 2013, Rainmaker and Insomniac Games announced that they were producing a movie based on Ratchet & Clank, my favourite game series of all time. In July of 2016, the film was supposed to release theatrically in New Zealand. It never happened.

What is the Crash Remaster? (or, What Measure is a Remake?) What is the Crash Remaster? (or, What Measure is a Remake?)

For 2016's E3, Sony’s Shawn Layden dropped the bomb that they’re partnering with Activision to “bring back the original Crash, Crash 2, and Crash Warped, fully remastered from the ground up for PlayStation 4". As a huge fan of the PSone titles, I went as nuts as Kinda Funny’s Tim Gettys did. But what could these…

Ratchet & Clank, Ranked Ratchet & Clank, Ranked

With the release of the latest Ratchet & Clank game, the franchise has received fifteen games over its fourteen years of existence. At just over one game per year, this has resulted in a colourful history for the Lombax and his robotic friend, and I am here to rank all the games, according to me (not you, me).

My Top 8 Favourite Pokémon Improvements My Top 8 Favourite Pokémon Improvements

Pokémon sure has come a long way since it was first introduced in 1996 twenty years ago, and along the way it picked up a myriad of features, some good and some not-so-good (I can’t think of anyone who cared about those contests). Today, we’re talking about my favourites! These come in the chronological order that they…

Opinion: The Force Awakens Has Problems Opinion: The Force Awakens Has Problems

There are plenty of places that have given Episode VII high praise. When I left the theater, though, all I could think about was how much better the film could have been, considering the myriad of issues I had with it.

Ratchet & Clank Movie Trailer In-Depth Ratchet & Clank Movie Trailer In-Depth

Over on the Insomniac Games forums, I’m known for making in-depth galleries that break down trailers of IG’s games (I even did one for Uncharted!). The Ratchet & Clank movie just got one, so why don’t you swing on by and take a look here? If you’re a R&C fan you’ll definitely get a kick out of all the references!

Revisiting Drake's Fortune: Uncharted Collection Trailer In-Depth Revisiting Drake's Fortune: Uncharted Collection Trailer In-Depth

Two days ago, a new trailer dropped for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Containing the original three Uncharted games for PS3 ported to PS4 (although oddly not Golden Abyss, a good game in its own right), the trailer focused on the story behind the Naughty Dog-developed games, in particular highlighting the…

Fruit Fusion: A TAY Review Fruit Fusion: A TAY Review

Wait what? Fruit Fusion? What kind of game is this? Some Match Three tablet game that nickel-and-dimes you with in-app purchases? Wait, is that the Insomniac logo?!

When will Next-Gen be Next-Gen?

All over the internet gaming sites, I see complaints. That's par for the course of course, but one consistent comment that I've seen is that nothing next-gen has really appeared for the next-gen consoles, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 (sorry Wii U, but you're gonna be shelved with the 360 and PS3 for this…

Next-Gen Heroes: Microgramma & Korataki Next-Gen Heroes: Microgramma & Korataki

Of all the things that one might expect to wind up as a Last-Gen Hero, fonts would probably be the last thing anybody would think of. Music? Yes. Specific games? Of course! But fonts? Why?

PocketStation Reference on PSVita Music App PocketStation Reference on PSVita Music App

The 3.00 update for the PlayStation Vita added functionality with the PlayStation 4, but what users may not have noticed was an update on the Music App's icon. When the app is opened (but not entered by touching the 'start gate'), the CD is of a disc for "PlayStation Family Music". On the right is a hypothetical…

Mass Effect: My Alternative Critique Mass Effect: My Alternative Critique

I was in a pretty unique spot when I eventually got to playing Mass Effect in early 2013. The core three games had been released, and Bioware had collected all three games as a Trilogy Box Set. As a PS3 gamer, I picked it up for that platform, and for the next two months I indulged myself in the completed world for…

Ratchet & Clank: The Best Series Everyone Ignored Ratchet & Clank: The Best Series Everyone Ignored

There have been many fantastic, ground-breaking and memorable games released in the seventh generation of game consoles (PCs don't have generations, they upgrade like eternal cyborgs). Uncharted. Journey. Bioshock. Erm, Solitaire on Windows Vista. But there is one franchise of video games that I hold closest to my…
