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

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. What it is, is more — much more — of what you enjoyed last year. Continue reading Games Review: Mario + Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventure (Switch, 2018): More of the same

The Iris’ 2017 Game of the Year Top 10

The year’s end is upon us once more and that means yearly wrap pieces. It’s been a pretty amazing year in the games industry. Microsoft launched the most powerful console ever made, and Nintendo released an altogether new one. We saw AAA disasters, runaway indie successes and an combative relationship with microtransactions as publishers figure out how to include revenue streams that don’t rub players the wrong way. With that in mind, lets take a look at what The Iris team thought ranked as their Top 5 games for 2017. Continue reading The Iris’ 2017 Game of the Year Top 10

Video Games Review: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle (Switch, 2017) is the best game Ubisoft have made in years

That headline isn’t bullcrap, I actually believe it. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Ubisoft’s big, bridge-repairing gamble with Nintendo, is one of the studio’s best offerings in years. It’s smart, addictive, tough as nails in the later levels and leverages a genre that doesn’t get much play on console in a way that is perfect for a system as portable as the Switch.

Video Games Preview: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is way harder than you think it is

A few hours of playing Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle at Ubisoft’s Australian HQ last week made me really glad I sank so many hours into XCOM. Behind its outwardly cute and cartoonish exterior beats the heart of a stone-cold killer. Continue reading Video Games Preview: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is way harder than you think it is

E3 2017: Hands On: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle (Switch, 2017)

One of the oddest surprises of this year’s E3 Expo has been Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Ubisoft’s collaboration with Nintendo raised eyebrows when it debuted during yesterday’s #UbiE3 Press Brief but after spending some time with the game on the show floor this afternoon, we’re all but convinced that this is a game to watch.
