Fortnite for a Game Truck party?

At the moment the single most common question I get on having Game Truck parties is, 'can we play Fortnite?' Fortnite (especially its iconic Battle Royale mode) is definitely the hottest game out at the moment, and we'll review it soon to explore why this is the case.

Life After Minecraft: 5 games for the fading Minecraft fan

Although Minecraft might still be new to some of us, it does have 100 million copies in the wild, having sold over 50,000 copies per day in 2016. Even so, individual gamers do eventually lose the love for Minecraft.

Hello all it’s Simon again, and today I am delighted to talk about Halo 5, the latest instalment in one of my favourite game franchises. I'll touch especially on issues that relate to families with children. In my last blog post for Game Truck Australia I mentioned that Halo 2 was a massive game changer in the video game entertainment industry for many reasons: ...

Ask a gamer 4: What’s the ‘M’ rating mean?

This  is a very good question, as the details of the Australian Classification Board's rating system are not really all that intuitive. I've commented previously on the age-appropriateness of Halo but it's worth going into a bit more detail. The key difference here is the distinction between the standard 'M' rating (with the blue symbol) and the MA 15+ rating (look ...
