Ah, the pre-millennial arcade scene. Where the games were addictive, the cabinets attractive and the prices affordable enough that you didn’t care how much you spent. Read Retro

Wow. I have to say, Nintendo releasing Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii U eShop is one thing, but pricing it at £8.99 in its first week of sale? Read Retro

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Review – Positive Verdict

By  •  Reviews

Is Ace Attorney as timeless a brand as Capcom and its fans would have you believe? Well, on the one hand, I would say yes. These murder mystery courtroom dramas with an abundance of Japanese cultural influence provide incredibly well crafted stories that can be enjoyed by anyone who’s ever picked up a book. Read Review

Right, allow me to just get one thing out of the way. It’s going to be very hard for me to review Akiba’s Trip. Why? Well, because I’m basically about to admit that I love a game where your primary objective is getting into fights with Japanese teenagers and relieving them of their clothes. Read Review

It’s the midst of autumn, a spooky, eerie time of year that’s perfectly personified in the most badass of all yearly celebrations: Halloween. Read Retro

Super Smash Bros. 3DS Review – A Pocket-sized Powerhouse

By  •  Reviews

It’s that time again. A time where legendary icons square off against one another to prove their dominance. The immovable objects clashing against the unstoppable forces of Nintendo’s vast and storied history. Where portly Italian plumbers trade blows with bounty hunters, anthropomorphic mercenaries, pointy eared warriors and the like. Read Review

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Review – A Stunning Sequel

By  •  Reviews

I thought very highly of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc when its Vita port released in Europe earlier this year. Its tried and true murder mystery premise was familiar, but felt entirely fresh because of its setting with remarkably well written characters and plot. Read Review

It’s a sad fact that many of the games we loved playing growing up simply haven’t stood the test of time; what we once thought were flawless masterpieces unfortunately eroded over the years. read Retro

Now hear me out on this one. How bizarre would it be if the first ever third person cover shooter ever made was not, in fact, Western made, but instead by a small Japanese team more famous for the Dynasty Warriors franchise? It sounds like something I’ve just pulled from thin air, but, it’s actually the truth. Read Retro

Quite a while back, I wrote an article showing off ten of my favourite songs in video games that happened to feature vocals. Listening to all those songs sure was good fun, and many were quite the nostalgia trip! But why stop with just ten?…
