So many games and so little time! The guys are back once again and they have pile of games to review including Knack 2, Project Cars 2, Morphite, Pinball FX 3, Everybody’s Golf, and of course more discussion about Destiny 2. Lucas and Matt also had the pleasure of going to EB Expo after it’s prodigal son return to the Gold Coast for the first time since it’s inaugural show in 2011. They share their thoughts on the event as well as inevitable comparisons to PAX Aus. We hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

Knack 2 (PS4)
An excellent sequel which improves upon the flaws from the original. A new co-op mode adds another layer to the game, and extra challenge modes add a bit of fun replayability. A really fun game and great for small kids.
Morphite (PC)
Space exploration shooter which has similarities to No Man's Sky but with clunky gameplay and a lack of polish. Lots of content to explore but it gets repetitive quickly. A little interesting but ultimately underwhelming.

2013 – Reflections By A Drop Bear

It’s December 31st once again, and of course that means it’s time to look back on the year. 2013 has been a huge year for gaming in Australia and given that it is about to end, I thought I’d do some reminiscing about the more influential and controversial moments of the year. Read more…

Susie’s PAX Diary – Day One

PAX Australia, as known as the Penny Arcade Exhibition, finally hit Down Under on Friday July 19th, 2013, in not so sunny Melbourne.  Filled with exhibitors, Q&A panels, demonstrations, and anything you can think of that is gaming and anime related.  For us proud nerds and gamers alike, it is almost like Christmas in July.  I was lucky enough to attend for DBG as media, alongside our own Matt, and got to prod, play, and chat with attendees and exhibitors.

2013 Gaming News So Far

We have been a bit inactive here at Drop Bear Gaming so far in 2013 due to a number of unforeseen things. Excessive work at our day jobs, illness, my laptop committing seppuku and the other distractions of life have meant we haven’t managed to get many posts up here. We are working to rectify this but to make up for not really covering anything this year I’ve decided to give a run down on what big news has been happening in the gaming world in no particular order.

Morphite (PC)

Pinball FX 3 (PS4)
Another great entry in the Pinball FX series. The new online tournament system adds an entire new level to pinball video games while new "special abilities" and challenges add a huge amount of gameplay to freshen up the genre and keep gamers busy.
Ruiner (PS4)
Fast-paced ultra-violent twin-stick shooter with a gritty dark cyberpunk/sci-fi visual style and an atmospheric soundtrack. All of the gameplay elements work well enough but the campaign is disappointingly short with repetitive level design.
Project Cars 2 (PS4)
Visually stunning, with really strong sound design, but let down by the

Lucas
The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
