That time has come. For anyone still checking back in hope that AusGamers would start posting regularly again, given we’ve been sporadic and largely dormant these past six or so weeks, we can now reveal that both Kosta and I, the site’s long-time co-managing editors, have made the decision to move on to something new, while Mammoth Media has decided to put the site out to pasture.

At PAX this year, in between checking out indie games and lining up to take shots with Mario and Sonic, we went on the hunt for the coolest PC gear at the show. From the holy grail of GeForce RTX 4090s to a very cool Cult of the Lamb PC and Cooler Master's giant sneaker PC concept.

If you're a local, you'll no doubt be aware of the homegrown V Energy Drink, with its bright green cans - and liquid that looks like a long-lost Nuka Cola Quantum flavour from Fallout.

The so-called 'walking simulator' is about to meet its parody moment, and it couldn't come at a better time. Baby Steps, from the creators of Ape Out and Getting Over It, is a physics-based adventure(?) title that simply tasks you with moving your 'life-got-the-better-of-me' avatar, Nate, by being in control of his legs. And while that might sound easy enough, as you can see from today's State of Play trailer, it's anything but.

Ubisoft Ivory Tower's open-world racer, The Crew Motorfest, is now out in the digital Hawaiian wild. The game, which has been earnestly compared to the Forza Horizon series takes the open-world concept in the racing space a bit further, adding sea and air to the mix for a truly transformative experience in a lush world full of opportunity.

Starfield recorded a peak player count (via Steam Charts) of 330,723 galactic explorers this past weekend, smashing through the concurrent peak player record for Skyrim set back in 2011. Skyrim's peak player count at launch on Steam was around 287,411. What makes this an even more impressive feat is that this doesn't include Xbox Game Pass players on PC - which will be another sizable chunk of spacefarers.

If we've learnt one or a few things about trade shows and fan events in gaming post-pandemic, it's that anything and everything can change at the last minute.

Still, the PAX Aus team has sent through its updated release on everything to expect at the event, with Nintendo to have a particularly large presence, which is a new tilt for The Big N even.

Turn 10 has definitely become the premiere racing game studio. And while all of its peers and some of the OG are nipping at its heels, you get the sense that Turn 10 is Max Verstappen with everyone else just playing catch up, including its own teammate in Playground (definitely Perez in this silly analogy).


Forza Motorsport, a seminal reboot of the series for the developer is just around the corner, and the studio has been kind enough to share a full 17 minutes of jaw-dropping gameplay. Check it out after the jump.

In case you haven't been across it, Lies of P is a unique Souls-like set in a twisted world where murderous puppets roam the streets of the fictional city of Krat and where you, P, also a puppet, must fight to stop this seemingly ridiculous-yet-still-terrifying nightmare from continuing.

Oh, and it's based loosely on Pinocchio, just for good measure.

Starfield is huge, and even though only 10% of the game's 1,000 planets to explore are not classed as 'Barren,' there's just something about landing on a desolate rock or mass and walking around. Very early on, the game lets you fully explore the Sol System - and that's what I did, checking out the harsh conditions on Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth.

After several years of development, Bethesda's next major RPG - its first original IP in generations - is finally here. With all of the hype surrounding Starfield's release on Xbox Series X|S and PC - even though Bethesda offered a sizable lead time, we're not quite ready to offer a final verdict. In fact, we're far from it. Starfield is huge.

One of the key factors holding up the completion of the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft has been Sony's concern that exclusive use of Microsoft's cloud gaming service would create an unfair environment for PlayStation players when it came to games like Call of Duty.

Overnght, however, Microsoft and Ubisoft revealed a partnership to have key Activision Blizzard titles streaming through Ubisoft's own cloud and streaming services, effectively adding a neutral party to balance Sony's concerns around fairness.

Although many fans, including us, were expecting a full-on remaster for the original Red Dead Redemption (2010) from Rockstar Games - it turns out that what was happening behind the scenes was a port of the previous PS3 and Xbox 360-only game to modern consoles the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The sad news, still no PC.

But also take that impressiveness with a grain of salt, as we all know how he base game definitely overpromised while underdelivering, in robotic spades. Still, what's in today's launch trailer (the new content is available now) looks mighty impressive and definitely worth at least checking out for its art-direction and space theme alone.

Yes, surfing.

As more and more games look to traversal as their differentiator, we're seeing a lot of unique methods of transport come to the design fore, and in Atlas Fallen, an action-RPG from Focus Entertainment and developer Deck13 this comes by way of surfing across the game's sand-covered fantasty world.

Wargaming seemed to come out of absolutely nowhere doing its own thing and getting rich while doing it. Starting in 1998 and making its mark with the flagship World of Tanks franchise, the developer-publisher has since released more than 20 titles across all major platforms and shows no signs of slowing as we mark 25 years of outlier business and unique gameplay and service offerings.

This is all speculative information across most of the Internet at the moment, but VGC cites numerous sources from within the development community who already allegedly have dev kits for a new Nintendo console.

And its premise is exactly as its title suggests (bless the simple sim world). In Brewpub Simulator you're in charge of taking over your pop's rundown old dive with the aim to turn it into the best damn pub in town. And as a university dropout, you kind of have no excuse. Just can't get enough of these games and their setups and structures.

Seagate's FireCuda storage solutions for PC have always been at the fore of that market. And today the company announced that the FireCuda 540 PCIe Gen5 NVMe SSD is available now in Australia and New Zealand and represents the biggest leap forward in performance for that series yet.
