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. But when it comes to playing it in the Game Truck, unfortunately the answer is no, and there a ...

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. Often they get to the age of 12 or 13 and it feels a little bit kiddy - they want something bit more grownup and exciting (even if they rediscover the ...

Review: Rocket League (Xbox One)

Not unlike Trials Fusion, Rocket League is a bit of a sleeper hit in the Game Truck. It seemed to come out of nowhere, and despite its huge popularity it has the feel of of an indie hit that has got the right recognition.

The Overwatch League may be only in its infancy, but it attracted over 10 million viewers in its first week and has already sparked some controversy. Last week xQc, a fan favourite from Dallas Fuel, was suspended by ...

Review: Trials Fusion (Xbox One)

Trials Fusion is the standout sleeper hit of the Game Truck. We originally acquired copies of it to get some sort of cycling-related game for the Tour Down Under last year but it has been way more popular and successful than we ever imagined. It's a really great opportunity to use the Game Truck to introduce players to a game they have often never heard of, especi...

Well that went quickly! It seems like only yesterday I was contacting friends and family and telling them I was planning to start a business as Adelaide's first mobile video game arcade, and then getting finance and designing the truck and buying the ute... all of a sudden it's three years later and we are still rolling, and still delivering the 'best party ever!' to ...

I've written before about griefing and its dangers, but recently I experienced a different challenge in facilitating fun friendly gaming with Minecraft.In short, playing Minecraft with others, especially on split screen, ...
