7 Reasons Fortnite Is So Popular

If you know any younger gamers at all, you would have heard of Fortnite: Battle Royale - it is absolutely the most popular game across the board right now, and I never stop hearing kids talk about it. Unfortunately it doesn't quite work in the Game Truck at the moment, and it may not be for players of all ages, but it has enormous appeal. Like Minecraft, it is more ...

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 ...

Preview: Sea of Thieves (Xbox One)

Last weekend I had the great good fortune to be a part of the Sea of Thieves beta test, and got the opportunity to play a limited version of the game for free. Sea of Thieves is a first person action/adventure game in which you are a pirate, seeking a fortune so that you can buy some snazzy clothes. Or something. Not quite sure what the object of this game is ...

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. 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 ...

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 ...

What I’m playing now: Fallout 4/Battlefront

At parties kids often ask me, 'are you a gamer'? Despite some problems with the label, I usually reply yes since gaming forms an important part of my identity. They usually follow up with 'what are you playing now?', so I thought I'd start a blog series updating telling about my current choice of games. I am usually monogamous with games but the end of 2015 ...

Review: Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One)

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: ...
