Get your gaming news! Get it now!


  • NEWS: Rocket Chainsaw’s pick for 2012’s game of the year, The Walking Dead, has been classified for an Australian release, as per the Australian Government’s Classification website. “Strong themes and horror violence”? You bet.
  • NEWS: Gluttons for brain-related punishment will be pleased to note that Sony Computer Entertainment Japan are making a brain training game for the PlayStation Vita, as discussed on Siliconera. Like most brain training games, the cheerfully titled Let’s Do Our Best! Brain-chan will be a collection of minigames involving observation, logic and calculation. No word of an English release yet, but the genre does seem to be quite popular here, so there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing it on our shores.
  • NEWS: We just released a review for New Style Boutique, but if you’re keen on dress-up with FPS gameplay, the new Borderlands 2 DLC is for you. According to the 2K Games blog, each vault hunter class now has a Domination, Madness or Supremacy themed outfit, totalling in 15 new sets, and is available for 80 MS Points/AUD$1.75.
