Bayonnetta 2 review

Bayonnetta 2

by .

It’s cards on the table time. This reviewer never actually liked the original Bayonnetta and couldn’t understand why people adored it. Whilst undeniably stylish, it was saddled with an unlikeable main character, overt and pandering objectification of the female form and instant death QTEs which came from nowhere. In every way it was a ridiculously… Read more »

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 »

Pokémon Conquest

by .

Mashing up the gameplay elements of Pokemon with the traditional strategy of the Nobunaga’s Ambition series might seem a little peculiar but then did anyone really expect the union of Disney and Square to amount to anything? And just as Kingdom Hearts took people by surprise, placing Pokemon into a SRPG is such a good… Read more »

Resident Evil 4

by .

2005: Resident Evil 4 – the 14th game in the series – is released exclusively on the underperforming GameCube. The public expected another solidly-built and well-marketed product but ultimately a wholly uninspiring release. As seen in the majority of franchises that get into double digits of title, straying from the norm can be your downfall;… Read more »

by .

The following is the transcribe of a conversation between Matty B and Raff. Matty doesn’t think that the N64 was very good (which is already a pretty unpopular decision). Have a read and let us know what you think. Matty B: The N64 wasn’t that good a console – discuss Raff: Wrong, it was excellent…. Read more »

Kid Icarus: Uprising [3DS]

by .

With the 3DS playing host to remakes, updates and sequels in place of genuinely new titles and the rumour mill of forthcoming games doing little to change this trend, players could be forgiven for largely ignoring Kid Icarus as yet another remake – albeit of a game that they had never played. And given the… Read more »

Mario Kart 7 [3DS]

by .

If there’s one thing that Nintendo seems to enjoy it’s going against convention.  After all, when Sony and Microsoft were trying to push the most bleeding edge technologies forward, Nintendo decided that what people really wanted to do was jump around and flail wildly in front of their televisions.  So at a time when most… Read more »

Tetris [Game Boy]

by .

One thing that always struck me as peculiar about Tetris is the unnervingly universal appeal. I’m yet to meet somebody who actively dislikes Tetris. It’s everywhere – there are a million clones on the internet, it’s on every device imaginable (including calculators) and people have even played it on the side of buildings. Sure, some… Read more »

legend of zelda wind waker review

Why You Should Own… Wind Waker

by .

I’m a self-confessed Zelda fanboy, and I’ve never hidden it. Much to the amusement and piss-taking of my mates, I’ve argued for years that not only is ‘The Legend of Zelda’ the best game series of all time, but that The Wind Waker is the best of the bunch. Nintendo went in an unexpected direction… Read more »
