Weird West – Review

The Wild West is one of those magical places that can meld with pretty much anything. There was a film in 2011 called Cowboys & Aliens, and I’ve been spending a lot of time watching a YouTuber by the name of Boylei Hobby Time, who is creating his own magnificent

Dodgeball Academia – Review

Now, ‘Dodgeball Academia’ by Pocket Trap and Ivan Freire is certainly one of the more unique games I have played in a while. Who would have thought a sports game and an RPG would have smashed together so fluidly? Not me, that’s for sure. You play as our hero, Otto,

Long before I joined the ranks here at MKAU Gaming, I worked as a farmhand on a turf farm. It wasn’t particularly exciting work, but there was something strangely calming about driving a tractor back and forth, mowing the grass, spreading fertiliser and weed killer, and then going home covered

Riders Republic – Review

As a gamer, the thought of going outside is a strange and foreign concept but thanks to Ubisoft, we get to digitally head to the mountains for some extreme sports. The world is your oyster with access to mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, rocket wings and glide suits set across geographically
