Splatoon

by .

I’ve recently concocted a bit of a theory about Nintendo. As soon as Nintendo get onto something, it pretty much signifies that that thing in particular is over. Nintendo have historically taken the smarter path, letting other companies develop technology or methodology, then sweeping in later to refine said technology. This explains Ninty’s slow adoption… Read more »

bloodborne ps4 review

Bloodborne

by .

There’s a very compelling argument that as yet, the PS4 and Xbox One lack a true must-have title. Yes there are good games, even great games but these are frequently enhanced versions of titles readily available on the last generation of consoles. As such, while the Wii U enjoys a renaissance with Mario Kart, Smash… Read more »

It may not be on the expected consoles, but another very welcome Borderlands game is just about released. This time around you are with Jack, not against, as you follow his ascent to Borderlands 2 antagonist.

Mario Kart 8

by .

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then the Mario Kart series is practically blushing. So many derivative kart racers have vied for pole position but for the most part have stalled in the first lap. Oddly though, with Mario Kart 8 Nintendo seems to have become an imitator itself, clearly taking inspiration from… Read more »

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale

by .

Let’s not beat around the bush here and instead get it out of the way early. Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale is essentially Sony does Smash Bros. Yet the sincerest form of flattery is not necessarily a bad thing. After all, how many 2D fighting games owe their existence to Street Fighter? And rather than simply… Read more »

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

by .

With karting titles being trundled out in time for the festive period with woeful regularity and often with little effort or innovation present, it’s easy to miss genuinely good titles – especially if it’s the sequel that nobody demanded. Which is why it’s so surprising to find that Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed is a… Read more »
