Good Game, the Australian show for gamers, by gamers has returned for its sixth season, and not without a little controversy. We get the lowdown from show host Hex about what’s going in tonight’s show.
Games! We review them!
Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? This episode of Good Game looks at Dante’s Inferno, a grotesque, action-adventure that sends you deep into the bowels of hell – to hack your way through hoards of demons (with plenty of puzzlers mixed in) that will leave you with a serious case of déjà vu.
Can you fail at brushing your teeth? You can in Heavy Rain – we check out this thoroughly adult, interactive movie-like epic in a quest to hunt down the ‘Origami Killer’.
We also take a look at the history of the PC gaming configuration staple – WASD – in Backwards Compatible…
Plus – Good Game visits Game Jam Sydney, where a group of budding game devs are sent into lockdown at the Powerhouse Museum to create a game in less than 48 hours. Crazy.
Catch Good Game Monday nights on ABC2 @ 8:30pm – and now also Good Game: Spawn Point (especially for younger gamers) on Saturday nights on ABC3 @ 7:25pm.
