SteamWorld Dig Review – Robo Rodeo

By  •  Reviews

The 2D platformer market is booming, not just on handheld  but also for PC and console gamers looking for some old school fun. It’s been a solid year for genre with titles such as Guacamelee, Rayman Legends and Rogue Legacy, but none of these great games feature steampunk robots in a Spaghetti Western setting. Read Review

Super Mario 3D World Review – Magical Mayhem

By  •  Reviews

There are no guns in Super Mario 3D World – no brutal melee kills or unnecessary expletives. You won’t encounter any micro-transactions forcing you to pay over the odds, a DLC season pass, or any contrived quick-time events covering up a developers’ lack of ideas. Read Review

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review – Uncle Sam

Sam Fisher climbs quicker than a starving monkey in pursuit of a ripe, hanging banana. He puts guards to sleep using the back of his thigh, the palm of his hand, the tip of his elbow, or a carefully thrown gas grenade. Read Review

The Wonderful 101 Review – Wonder Punch

By  •  Reviews

There’s something incredibly infectious and wholly refreshing about Platinum Games’ approach to video game design. The Japanese studio has become renowned and rightly celebrated for producing high-quality, action-packed titles brimming with eccentric creativity, topped off with an unabashed disregard for the safe and traditional gameplay conventions which so many video games rely on. Simply put, Platinum Games are not afraid to take risks – the bigger, the better, in fact. Read Review

While doctors recommend that we eat five pieces of fruit a day as part of a balanced diet, I’ve managed to consume no less than 66 pieces – freshly squeezed – in just four days. Read Review

Picture this: you’re spending an evening with friends playing some table top Dungeons & Dragons when – after your fourth beer or so – you let the cleric and the goblin duke it out while you head to the bathroom to relieve yourself. Read Review

It’s easy to kick someone when they’re down. It’s even easier to lay the boot into the forlorn figure of Nintendo. Just look at them, lying there like such fools…
