I was never amazing at Quake, not like most of the original Mammoth/AusGamers/QGLers. Or Joab.

With each title to deservedly get the royal treatment at this year's show. The line-up, which represents broad range of indie developers from across Australia, and a broad range of styles, is naturally very impressive.

At the time Bethesda stated that they were working with Sony on the issue. An issue that has yet to be resolved.
Since relaunching as a free-to-play title Evolve's community has grown to over 2 million players worldwide. And to capitalise on that renewed interest developer Turtle Rock is kicking off a month long set of updates they're calling Shear Madness. Because it'll include everything from new characters, maps, and even a new co-op mode.
There's a good reason why GTA V has been in the top 10 best seller list since its debut, a steady stream of free and substantial content for GTA Online. With the recent 'Cunning Stunts' add-on taking the game to Trackmania-style heights comes a new Stunt Race Creator that has to be seen to be believed.
