Don Bradman Cricket 14 Review

It’s been a long dry spell for cricket fans in the video game industry. We’ve been taunted with one or two possibly good games only for them to fail at the last hurdle and end up being as useless as Kevin Pietersen’s opinions. So will the great Don Bradman save us or are we doomed for another few years?

Review: FTL: Advanced Edition

How much is there to say about FTL at this point? If you already own it you already know how great it is. Being a fan of it, you would also know that the Advanced Edition is absolutely free to those who already own the main game. So it’s hard to really put a score to FTL and its... expansion? I guess it is an expansion. So this review will be an overview of FTL as a whole, and what Advanced Edition content adds to it.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Review – Don’t fear the reaper

Its finally here, the expansion to the stupidly addictive clickiness that Blizzard gave to us nearly two years ago!  I won't ignore the fact that some of you likely had your issues with the game, whether it be of the error 37 kind or just simply a hatred for something it did or didn't do to meet your expectations.  You may be wondering why in hell you should now consider paying the price of a full game for an expansion. The simple answer is this: Reaper of Souls takes what you hated about Diablo III, fixes them, then throws in a whole lot of extra content to keep you busy for many, many hours.

Goat Simulator Review

What a match made in heaven, the only aussie writer on Lazygamer reviewing a game where you play as an insane goat.

Towerfall: Ascension review – Archery Rivals

Remember a time when gaming was all about fun? “Online” multiplayer gaming wasn’t viable, DLC and micro transactions didn’t exist? Remember when “multiplayer” gaming meant having a bunch of friends around, each with a controller in hand and a butt on a couch? Towerfall: Ascension brings that magic back.

Luftrausers Review – Luftwaffles

The idea of an ace pilot who could sink ships and turn the tide of battle is a facet of warfare lost to history and a bygone era of aerial warfare. Luftrausers however, is all about reliving that golden age of dogfighting. One launch at a time...that invariably ends with your craft in flames and headed for a watery grave.

SteelSeries H Wireless Review

We already raved to you about the glory that is the SteelSeries Siberia Elite headset. As a result, I jumped at the chance to review the SteelSeries H Wireless Gaming Headset and my ears have been thanking me ever since.

Tales of Symphonia: Chronicles review

I’m a huge Japanese role-playing nut. My phone is filled with JRPG battle themes and there was a point in my life when all I could play were JRPGS. I just generally love Japanese culture. Every single platform I own I have a JRPG in my collection of games. From Chaos Rings on my mobile phone to Valkyria Chronicles on PlayStation 3, I just can’t get enough of them. But there are some games that have eluded me over the years. I never really had a GameCube growing up so I missed out on a few awesome games. One of them was Tales of Symphonia.

inFamous: Second Son Review – Come as you are

inFamous: Second Son is one of the few new games for the PlayStation 4, built on a franchise that isn’t shared with other platforms. It’s a game that is meant to be a bridge between generations, while drawing in new fans and keeping the old ones from moving on as the game shows off what the PS4 is capable of. And it succeeds in all those departments magnificently.

The Lego Movie Videogame: The Review

The LEGO Movie was certainly a surprise. What could have easily been a silly, mindless kids’ movie has ended up as perhaps one of the greatest animated films ever made, perfectly capturing the slapdash, mix-and-match wonder of a child playing with LEGO, infused with charm and genuine comedy. If you were expecting the same sort of surprise from the movie’s inevitable, incredibly meta tie-in, then you’re set for disappointment I’m afraid. That doesn’t mean that it’s bad.

Titanfall review – Dropping from the clouds

So Titanfall landed on the 14th of March 2014 in every single gaming country on the planet other than South Africa. Blame our networks, blame the Consumer Protection Act, blame the lack of a local Azure datacentre - either way, EA felt it was in their best interests not to release the game here. 

Yoshi’s New Island review

It’s very rare that I’m enthusiastic about a sequel, especially for a Nintendo title, where there seems to be a new one every week.

Ozone Onda Pro gaming headset

Now you may be looking at the quote above and immediately think that there’s a lot wrong with the Onda Pro Headset. In reality there isn’t, but the small problem it has ultimately ruins the headset. This was disappointing because my experience with other Ozone products has been quite encouraging. In any case, here is my review of the Onda Pro USB headset.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Review Round-up

I remember the day that I first saw Final Fantasy X. It looked good! This was in the day of bulky 480p TV screens, but hell, the game looked stunning back then. And then Auron spoke, which was something that I had never seen in a Final Fantasy game. Years later, it’s still a great game, and possibly even better with an HD sheen to it. Here’s what the critics have to say.

Dark Souls 2 scores high with Famitsu

In revenge of Japan news, the nation that was home to Sony PlayStation and the last to get their hands on the new PS4 console has had a chance to play Dark Souls 2 before anyone of you lot have. Naturally, there’s a score attached to the end of the rope that said reviewer was going to use to help forget about the crushing difficulty of the cult hit RPG.
