Fighting Back For Fortnite

Look, we’ve made no secret of our outrage around all this fake news surrounding Fortnite. And it turns out we’re not alone… well bloody played Kitty Flanagan. A couple of weeks back,  Pete let fly at the Today show about the Fortnite attack. Anyhoo, turns out there’s a few of us now sticking up for Fortnite and sticking it to the fake news brigade. We found this little nugget of gold from Kitty Flanagan on The Weekly With Charlie Pickering… it’s 10000% on point. Isn’t it so true… we particularly love the football comparison. Classic!

Hey EA And Konami… Take Note Of The Socceroos!!!!

The Socceroos performance so far in the 2018 World Cup got me thinking about a chat I had with Pete Curulli in a MUCH earlier edition of the Game On AUS podcast. Now – I’m writing this assuming that EA’s FIFA ranks Australia the same way that Konami’s Pro Evo Soccer does… as in, not very high. For years now, in the various editions of Pro Evo that I’ve owned (yep, I’m one of the rare PES people), whenever I play as Australia, the team is usually really shit house.

Hey Optus? Where’s The Apology To Gamers?

So… there’s a pretty major sports tournament that’s going on at the moment. You might have heard of it? The World Cup? The soccer and gaming have had a close relationship for many a year now.

My old mates at Optus have been in the shit of late, because there were reportedly serious issues with regards of Optus’s failure to stream World Cup games that people had paid good money to receive....

Retro Rocks Review: Bubble Bobble

I’m taking you on a journey that tells the story of two little guys that could… two school kids who looked impossible in the eye and said “it can be done”… The game was Bubble Bobble. Now, before the credible gamers amongst us almost spit out their Mountain Dew in disgust (BUBBLE BOBBLE?), let me state that Bubble Bobble was truly one of the great platformers on the Commodore 64. So simple… so clever… so bloody addictive. Back in the late ’80s or so, my brother (Damian) and I sat down with this game, on the aforementioned Commodore 64,...

Fortnite… I Fortked Up

Okay Fortnite, I owe you an apology. Some weeks back I told you Fortnite, to fork right off, as I tried you out for a night and it was a dismal failure. So much so that me and my regular co-op cohort, Ronald P Corbett (DING), put our money where our mouths are and bought PUBG for $40. Now – PUBG and I had a better initial experience… I actually got a kill in my first sortie. But from there, it was all downhill for me and PUBG. It was mainly to do with the initial render when you...
