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: Minecraft (Xbox One)

Sure, Minecraft has been around since 2011, but it's never too late for a good review, right? In particular, lots of customers and friends of Game Truck Australia are still asking about Minecraft - what is and how it works, and we are well positioned to help contribute to that conversation. Furthermore, lots of changes have happened to Minecraft since its first ...

Ask a Gamer 14?: What is ‘couch co-op’?

Q: I've read a number of your reviews and comments on particular video games, and you often use the term 'couch co-op'. Sorry if this sounds dumb, but what does that mean? A: Great question! And of course, it's not dumb at all - like any group of people, us gamers sometimes use jargon without realising that not everyone is up with the lingo. OK, so 'couch co-op' ...

Review: Sonic Racing (Xbox 360)

The Game Truck is always about offering the most awesome, inclusive gaming experiences possible, meaning that we favour games that players of any age or level of experience in gaming can pick up and play and have lots of fun with friends. In this regard, Sonic Racing is perhaps the single best option for parties in the truck: yes, it's even better than Minecraft. ...

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...

3 years of awesome video game parties for kids in Adelaide

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 ...

Review: Assault Android Cactus (PC)

Twin-stick shooters and bullet hell: these are a few of my favourite things. Many indie games are hearkening back to the classic days of arcade games and bringing together well-known genres with cutting-edge technology, music and animation. Assault Android Cactus is a great example of this 'brand new retro' development philosophy, and the result is a hugely entert...

Invitations for your party!

We try to make Game Truck events as easy as possible to organise and run, and part of this is simplifying the process of inviting your guests. I get lots of questions about how this works so I thought I'd explain it all in detail here. The most popular option is to use our customisable template, as below: The process to use this template is relatively ...

Ask a Gamer 5: Video Games and Ratings

As you may know, I love getting questions about games and game culture. I love it even more when those questions come from a keen High School student doing something on games for their Research Project. This week I was contacted by Adam, who is researching video games and the Australian ratings system, and I thought he had some really great questions. His specific ...
