Review: God of War (PS4)

We don't usually publish reviews on brand-new games, but I couldn't help myself here. God of War was released just last Saturday and unusually for me I picked it up straight away. Why the urgency, you ask? Vikings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rClXqZD2Xrs Contrary to appearances, God of War actually isn't a new franchise: like Tomb Raider and Doom and ...

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 ...

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. It is very popular with boys at about 10-11 years of age: at this age they are starting to grow out of Minecraft a bit and are looking for the next ...

PAX Aus 2017: Five Indie highlights

As in previous years, my top gaming highlight of PAX was the independent developer showcase. While a lot of attention is paid towards the big shiny games at PAX and elsewhere (i.e. I spend a lot of time talking about Doom and Overwatch), there is a lot to recommend Indie games. They are hands down more interesting, creative, unique and surprising than almost anything ...

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...

Review: Prison Architect (MacOS)

When I talk about the diversity of video games out there, Prison Architect is high on my list. It is also a good example of a game that has enormous potential for learning about the criminal justice system and systems thinking. Although I played it on Mac, it's also available on PC, iPad, Android, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Prison Architect follows in a long ...

Review: Destiny 2 (PS4)

We don't usually review the latest and greatest games, but Destiny 2 is something I've jumped on straight away since its release last week, so I thought I'd fill you in on my thoughts. As the name suggests, it's a sequel of a game (Destiny) that came out about three years ago, and that history is part of what makes Destiny 2 interesting and worth talking about. ...

Review: No Man’s Sky (PS4)

No Man's Sky is definitely the flavour of the week; its release just last Thursday following a loud hype train that ran for over two years. Published by the giant, Sony, it was developed by an (until-now) indie developer, Hello Games, known only for their Joe Danger games. No Man's Sky is best described as a science-fiction space exploration game, but that hardly ...

N: I loved it, it had this visual presentation at the beginning that had this ...
