    NINTENDO SWITCH SPORTS is a stylish and fun multiplayer game, but online progression for cosmetics is a chore

    Grab your joycon, tighten your wrist strap and bowl, smash or spike your way to victory. If you had a Wii you almost certainly played  WII SPORTS, the 2006 title sold 82 million copies by the end of that console's life in 2017.

    NINTENDO SWITCH SPORTS is a slick sequel with plenty of innovation and polish that could become another cult classic.

    You won't have played anything quite like 13 SENTINELS: AEGIS RIM, this multi-protagonist mecha anime game is so compelling and layered it's actually mindblowing how well all the parts work together. 

    Step into the highschool drama of budding relationships, interschool rivalries in Sakura High School just before the world ends and you need to jump into the cockpit of a Sentinel robot to defeat the mechanised kaiju.

    TINY TINA'S WONDERLANDS is genuinely funny and enjoyable spin on the BORDERLANDS series

    TINY TINA'S WONDERLANDS is genuinely funny and enjoyable spin on the BORDERLANDS series

    Heartfelt writing that comes from a deep love of tabletop gaming, and some stellar performances from Ashly Burch, Andy Samberg, Wanda Sykes and Will Arnett makes TINY TINA'S WONDERLANDS a fun take on the tried and true looter-shooter format.

    Gianni a relative newbie to BORDERLANDS series joins Mitch a long time veteran as they enter the Wonderlands which performs a lot better on new consoles.

    WEIRD WEST is an immersive sim that wants you to play creatively and experiment with its systems

    WolfEye Studios' debut game is a creative isometric action rpg that sees you exploring a world rich with interactivity and intricate systems to exploit.

    READ OUR REVIEW: WEIRD WEST wants you to play creatively and experiment with its systems

    WEIRD WEST wants to push back at you. It wants to make every step you take through its dust covered; occult landscape feel layered with consequence. Who are you?  How does the world react to you and your choices?  Are the people you’ve wronged going to get their revenge? Why did that witch give you a mysterious box and should you open it?

    Adam joins Gianni to share this action RPG that plays more like an immersive sim. '

Michael maynard ,

Excellent podcast

I was super excited to find out Pixel Sift were creating a new podcast and they haven’t disappointed! So far the audio quality’s been great and content has been excellent. Very informative and the hosts know what they’re talking about (as always) while maintaining a good balance of views and opinions. If you haven’t already, go check out their other stuff too!

Herbie Bugz ,

Game on!

Great conversations. They really know their stuff!

AlternateRaiL ,

Why can’t all video game podcasts sound this good?

Pixel Sift are one of the best Australian podcasts around. Glad they’re branching out into covering the big games too.
