Let me start by saying I’m not much for “artsy” games. Dear Esther and Gone Home passed me by without a second glance, and Proteus didn’t enchant me as much as it frustrated. I believe that the most important advantage that video games have over other art forms is the sense of agency and purpose […]
The Xbox One was launched in 2013 and when it was first revealed Microsoft promised a digital distribution platform that did away with the need for disk based games. This notion sounded great, but it was instantly apparent that the 500GB hard drive included in the original Xbox One was never going be enough space.
Since I’m not allowed to quote Ms. Black anymore, have yourselves a little Sugar. “It was twelve o’clock one Friday night, I was rocking to the beat and feeling all right. Everybody was dancing on the floor, doing all the things they never did before.”
I don’t like the dark and quiet. I can’t sleep with the lights off and in silence. My brain wanders and makes it difficult to fall asleep. I’ve learned to deal with it, and now I simply put on some vapid television show or a reasonably unexciting stream. Often times this means a speedrunning stream; […]
Have you got all the supplies you needed for your cosplay? Good! Let’s begin piecing it together. I’m going to change things up from my past format, as the work you’ll need to do with this phase will vary greatly. Instead, I will offer some helpful dos and don’ts to make this as painless as possible.
We take off the training wheels this week as we dive right into talking about alien autopsies (a.k.a. chopping up aliens, and of course getting that counter probing in on them, if you know what I mean), as well as why research and science is super important early in the game! This is XCOM!
It’s raining, it’s always raining. As the droplets run down the window on this autumn day, I sip my coffee. It’s cold as always. I throw it against the wall in frustration and cry out in the deepest of agonies. I fall into a pit of endless sadness, hot pockets spewed across the floor. I […]
Hello everyone and welcome to my new feature here on AYBOnline, where I trust-fall into the arms of Valve quality control and let their loving arms rock me to sleep. Or, alternatively, crash to the ground in a fiery wreck worthy only of Sir Michael of Bay himself. Today, I put the Greenlight system (and […]
Oculus Connect 2, Oculus’s annual developer conference, took place this week and there were some pretty spectacular announcements. The company, with Facebook’s backing, looks poised to take the world by storm next year with the consumer release of the Rift VR head-mounted display.
(Editor’s Note — I’ve scrubbed Dave’s second attempt at using Rebecca Black’s 2011 smash hit “Friday” to start this column. Those responsible have been sacked have not been sacked, but, like, damn, Dave. At least use Sandstorm or something. –JM)
Nothing ever prepares you for losing a squad mate, or even a friend. The world of XCOM is an unforgiving lover that takes everything in the divorce; the kids go, the dog goes, and you’re left with nothing but a jar of pickles and Kraft singles. Welcome to the fantastic world of upgrading technology, squad management and […]
Alright fam, time to buckle in and sort your lives out. Orion is back with some hard hitting truth and I can only hope you are mentally prepared for the chaos that is about to hit your cranium like a railroad loaded with watermelons. There will be no mercy. Here are your new release games. […]
G’day cobbers! We got ourselves an ace bottler today about a bushranger stuck in the GAFA who’s as fit as a Mallee bull, and that’s deadset. Bloody oath! He doesn’t know Christmas from Bourke Street… brown-eyed mullet… shrimp on the barbie.
