There is a bunch of stuff missing, and not just the really obscure stuff. Super Time Force isn't there

Anyway my Stuff.

Eidolon. Survival/Exploration game that feels like Proteus, but with a little more direct storytelling and with light survival mechanics.

Hadean Lands: A Sci Fi text adventure that feels like you are playing a tabletop rpg with the most insane/brilliant gm ever, on pc and ios. Anyone who has mentioned 80 Days here should check this one out, it will blow your mind.

Super Time Force: Nothing much to say, love the mechanics, love the weird emergent puzzle solving that the mechanics inadvertently create. I even don't mind the dumb humour. One of my favourites of the year.

Mount Your Friends: Its great every time they play it on the show and even better in person, perhaps the best "let's have some beers and play multiplayer games" game of all time.

The Sailor's Dream: From Simogo, the people that brought you Year Walk and Device 6, another unique game that plays with presentation in interesting ways and is best to just jump in cold and experience it without context,

I don't really play that many racing games (usually one every 3-4 years) but I think this is awesome. Such a great example of what the gaming community can be. Keep it up duders, hope you enjoy your race night for many years more.

If you can make it down to Barwon Heads, about 1hr 20min out of Melbourne, I work at Jirrahlinga Wildlife Sanctuary. We have a lot of native animals, I'd be happy to give you a tour, you'd even be able to handle/pat some animals, like wombats, kangaroos etc.

Far Cry 4

Witcher 3


Runners Up: Evolve, Cuphead, Dragon Age, Batman, No Man's Sky

I'd Like to see more from AC, Tomb Raider, Abzu and Inside, Below would be pretty high, but not much of a showing so far.

Best: Her

Worst: Gangster Squad

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is great, Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas and Raising Arizona are also great Cage performances. Wild at Heart and Moonstruck are two that are well regarded, but I haven't seen.

scene-stealers.com is my favourite place for movie reviews, not as pandering and blockbuster friendly as a lot of sites, not as pretentious as a lot of sites, you never feel like you're being talked down to, but you get good, in depth discussion from people who really know what they're talking about, good sense of humour too. If you just want straight up humour look to filmdrunk.uproxx.com, most of the stuff they put out is pretty damn funny (podcast can be a bit bro-y though). For film news I go to the playlist, but I take their opinions with a grain of salt as I agree as often as I don't with them. Finally if oscar punditry is your thing incontention is the place if you have fun with picking the winners and lightly following awards season.
