Dead Frontier: Survival Horror Zombie MMORPG

Dead Frontier: Survival Horror Zombie MMORPG

Zombies? In an MMORPG? That sounds like the sort of game I was born to play. Dead Frontier isn’t such a bad name, either. There’s no big developer or publisher behind it, just an independent group by the name of Jagged Blade Games. The graphics remind me of 10tons’ Crimsonland,…

GTA IV Australian Street Date Broken

GTA IV Australian Street Date Broken

Ah street dates. Retailers are as likely to stick to them as a 90-year old driver is to the road. Minus the whole potential to crash, maim and destroy. Despite being a massive release, GTA IV hasn’t escaped the clutches of a number of eager storeowners – Xbox World Australia…

Dual Shock 3, Now Available At My Place

Is there stock of the Playstation 3 Dual Shock 3 controller in the country? I would say this package, which arrived on my front door not long ago, would suggest a “Yes”. I look forward to putting my SixAxis into retirement. Now I just need to get a second one…

Cthulhu Cake Wants To Eat You

Cthulhu Cake Wants To Eat You

I know the Kotaku US guys are absolutely crazy about cake and cake-related foodstuffs. I’ve never “gotten the fever”, to paraphrase Christoper Walken, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a well-crafted baked treat just like the next moderately insane person. As a compromise, I’ve managed to meld my
