Hoo boy. This review is gonna be all over the place. It’s going to be this way because this game, even as a concept, is all over the place.
You would think that, given that Tetris is already the most grueling activity a person can engage in, interrupting it with a quick round of the colour-matcher Puyo Puyo would be as if someone was doing you a huge favour. In practice, it feels like even more work.

I’d be lying if i said that I don’t approach a Mario Kart review with a certain amount of trepidation. You know what you’re getting into with a Mario Kart title — vehicular barbarism and savagery on parade, draped in the charming trappings of a cartoon. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe does not go out of its way to assuage that trepidation one bit. Continue reading Video Games Review: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch, 2017) is the most comprehensive title the series has ever produced
Have you already run out of things to do in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and are thinking about starting a new game? Maybe your partner or sibling wants to start a game of their own? Previous Zelda titles have made allowances for situations just like these, providing up to three save slots so multiple players could track their progress without muddying the save state waters. Zelda: Breath of the Wild extends no such courtesy. Continue reading PSA: Starting a new game in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will overwrite your old saves

Nintendo’s flagship character has always enjoyed a tighter focus when it comes to his many, many spin-offs. You can always be sure that a Mario game (or any related title) will be held to a particularly high standard by the business, Nintendo and its developers being very careful to control the quality for their primary bread winner. Continue reading Video Games Review: Paper Mario: Colour Splash (Wii U, 2016)
It often feels like Nintendo is represented by the shy, imaginative kid in the corner, the one tinkering away with ideas, fueled by independent thought while his bigger, beefier peers dominate the playground. That’s certainly a valid comparison when considering all Nintendo have done over the past few years, starting with the game-changing Wii which took motion controls to a whole new level. That penchant for thinking outside of the box with hardware seems to have continued and spilled over nicely into the Nintendo Switch – the system that, for the last year and change, has been known as the Nintendo NX – which was finally revealed overnight, six months ahead of launch. Continue reading The “Nintendo NX” is revealed: Nintendo Switch to place an emphasis on portable gaming
PlayStation’s VR is almost ready to be unleashed on a public that largely has very little idea of what awaits them. That idea became a little clearer after EB Expo though, one of the general public’s first real chances to go hands-on with this beautiful piece of immersive tech, with a handful of demos designed to show off PSVR’s many different uses. One moment you’re in a cockpit desperately trying to fly in formation while enemies shoot at you, the next minute you’re in a shark cage descending to the sea bed, frantically looking around to make sure that massive great white stays the fuck away from you (it doesn’t, it’s scary as hell). The possibilities of this are so very exciting, and they overshadowed almost everything at the expo this year. Continue reading The Iris’ EB Games Expo 2016 Awards
