Games Review: Inside (Switch, 2018): Ain’t nothin’ gonna break my stride

July 17, 2018

Playdead’s Inside follows rather closely in the footsteps of Limbo, the developer’s debut title. Though it revisits many of the mechanics that made Limbo so interesting, Inside has a purpose and a story to tell that is as different to its predecessor as its possible to be. On the Switch, that story can now be experienced […]

You have got to see this Uncharted fan film starring Nathan Fillion

July 17, 2018

Fans of Uncharted, Naughty Dog’s long-running series of Indiana Jones-esque action adventure games, have been demanding a feature film adaptation for many years. For a large number of those fans, the hope was always that Firefly and Castle actor Nathan Fillion would play the game’s hero, Nathan Drake, when the time came. A slickly produced fan film, […]

Games Review: Limbo (Switch, 2018): Doing a lot with very little

July 16, 2018

I can’t believe that eight years after its release, Limbo still holds up as well as it does. Ported to the Nintendo Switch alongside its Playdead stablemate Inside, the game makes the system its home with ease.

July 12, 2018

I have a rule when it comes to playing games for review: Remain objective, even when the game is in a genre you aren’t crazy about. Last week, I broke that rule. I had assumed I would detest Octopath Traveler. I had resigned myself to reviewing yet another JRPG, despite my long and well-documented history […]

Games Review: Mario + Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure (Switch, 2018): More of the same

July 11, 2018

Ubisoft returns to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, the surprise strategy hit of 2017, with a lengthy new slab of DLC with Donkey Kong in the spotlight. To call Donkey Kong Adventure an “expansion” in the strictest sense might be to oversell it. It doesn’t really add much to the game that wasn’t there already. […]

Game Review: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (Switch, 2018) spins its way onto all Major Platforms.

July 10, 2018

I had the pleasure of diving back into the way back machine with the old overgrown, orange marsupial last week with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch. Crash, despite a few niggling flaws, it still holds up magnificently after 22 years thanks to its wonderful remaster of the very first 3 games in […]
