Backlog Slog – Agents of Mayhem

From the makers of Saints Row over at Volition comes this week’s Backlog Slog, Agents of Mayhem. Originally released in 2017, it’s certainly one of the more recent games I’ve played, but the question becomes, was it worth putting it off for so long? Agents of Mayhem is a part of th...

We Happy Few Reclassified for Australian Release

Previously, We Happy Few was a game that we thought would never see release on our shores. It was refused classification by the the Classification Board on the ruling that the drug use contained was beneficial and created an advantage for the player. Never mind all the bashing in of heads and whatno...

Backlog Slog – Fortnite: Save the World

I debated on whether or not this should be my next Backlog Slog. I feel like everyone and their Grandma’s nextdoor neighbors cat who can’t see too good knows about Fortnite at this point. We even talked about it here a little before release. But Battle Royale isn’t the whole game, ...

Backlog Slog – Tyranny

After my time with Pillars of Eternity 2 and my somewhat negative feelings on it, I decided to give Obsidian Entertainment another chance. Where Pillars was too dense and not particularly newbie friendly, I instead put my sights on Tyranny, originally released in late 2016. Tyranny comes with an int...

Backlog Slog – Hacknet

Hacknet was a game I first encountered at PAX Aus 2015. But, alas, it was from a distance. Each year it popped up at the convention, I would pass it, never getting the chance to play it because there was always a huge crowd waiting for their turn. I did, however, manage to get myself […] The p...

Backlog Slog: Omikron: The Nomad Soul

Ah, Steam. The biggest gaming platform in the world and, unfortunately, one without a similar comparison. Sure, there are other platforms like Origin and Uplay, but these only cater to their respective developers. Smaller platforms like GOG exist for DRM free options, and itch.io for indie developer...
