The Card: Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack, Page One Review

So I didn’t get to play much Outer Worlds this week, so that review is still a little ways away. But I did pick up a new game for the Switch on sale. It won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy playing Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack and/or Page One but don’t like playing online, then The Card may be a game for you.

It does give The Game a run for its money as the worst searchable game title though! Seriously, who thought that finding The Card Switch would show this title?

So. PAX Aus 2020 online anybody?

PAX Online

So, a very short one today. Wednesdays I talk about things I am looking forward to, usually games on Kickstarter. Yesterday, PAX Aus 2020 was officially postponed until 2021. But that doesn’t mean that I still can’t be looking forward to PAX! I wrote this thinking Tuesday was Wednesday and thought I would float a way of celebrating PAX online this year. Glad it was only Tuesday because PAX Online 2020 is real.

Last Week’s Gaming – June 15th, 2020

Animal Crossing Snowfolk

I didn’t get much gaming in last week. Work had me more run down than I thought. As usual, that doesn’t mean I didn’t get any gaming in though! I have started making headway with The Outer Worlds on Switch, and I finally played the Iron Man VR demo.

What did I think of them? Well, you will have to have a look at the article to find out!

The PlayStation 5 Reveal Event Thoughts

PlayStation 5 Lineup

So the PlayStation 5 was revealed this morning (Australian time). I got out of bed early and enjoyed the reveal. There is a lot to be excited about, even if not a lot of concrete information came out.

But the information that was revealed is pretty impressive – and divisive. So as no one else on the internet has given their two cents on the topic, I thought today I would give my thoughts on the PlayStation 5 reveal.

Castle Panic Deluxe is live on Kickstarter!

Sorry, I am a little late today folks – I thought it was Tuesday! But today an old favourite of mine Castle Panic hit Kickstarter for a new Deluxe version! New plastic castle, mini’s for enemies and wooden tokens. You can even just upgrade your existing copy! Check out more on the site!
