F-Zero GX Retro Reflection

By  •  Retro

For those of you who owned Nintendo’s underrated GameCube console, a game like F-Zero GX might have found its way into Christmas present piles along with the likes of Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime, Starfox Adventures, or Metal Arms: Glitch in the System. All the same, those of you who never had the privilege of owning the cubic wonder would have missed out on one of the fastest, meanest, and downright punishing racing games ever made. Read Retro

Jet Set Radio Vita Review – Graffiti On The Go

By  •  Reviews

After a significant delay, Sega and Blit finally bring us the first game from the second wave of Dreamcast re-releases, Jet Set Radio, to the PlayStation Vita. It was a bold move to port the game to Sony’s handheld, and it comes with a brand spanking new touchy-feely controls you’d expect from a Vita title. Read Review

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Review – A Smash?

By  •  Reviews

Super Smash Bros. is a great series; a series whose formula has remained virtually untouched by other developers since it debuted on the Nintendo 64. Why? Well, for one, Nintendo’s stroke of genius to create a fighting game involving most of its beloved IPs is something that most developers simply cannot do. As such, Nintendo’s fighting franchise has remained a fan favourite, go-to multiplayer sensation for years. Read Review

Nintendo are a very special company. I’m sure that’s news to absolutely no one, but when you look back on their various franchises and all the good times they’ve brought us, something becomes apparent that isn’t common in the gaming industry: Read Retro

In this current generation, now more than ever, sequels mean everything. The second game in particular is where developers have to nail it, expanding upon positives of the original, while ensuring the game holds onto its identity is what makes or breaks a franchise. Read Review

Jet Set Radio HD Review – Nice, Nice!

By  •  Reviews

With the explosion of HD titles and remastered collections hitting the market in recent years, nostalgia has become somewhat of a commodity in the industry today.

And rightly so, as HD remakes provide a satisfying one-two punch; giving oldies the games they loved in their youth, while also offering younger audiences the chance to experience such fine offerings. Read Review

Sleeping Dogs Review – Wei Hey!

By  •  Reviews

If it weren’t for its interesting development history, some would argue that Sleeping Dogs wouldn’t have captured as much media attention as it did. A sandbox game set in Hong Kong dealing with the inner struggles of its largest criminal organisation isn’t exactly innovative by storytelling standards, and the game doesn’t offer anything new in terms of gameplay.

Sound Shapes Review – Be Square

By  •  Reviews

On paper, Sound Shapes isn’t really an interesting prospect. A side-scrolling platformer with a strong focus on striking visuals and ambient music is a premise often practiced by budding indie developers (see Braid, Bastion and Limbo for three classic examples of this) so you’d be forgiven for writing off this game as nothing special.
