Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! Review

What’s Old is New: Pokémon Go has been my most played videogame of 2018, which is saying a lot considering it’s a mobile game. It’s not a device I ever get much use out of when it comes to gaming, but countless days and nights this year have been spent out and about catching, trading and evolving virtual critters. All of which is to say, when Nintendo announced this year’s Pokémon game would be a ...[Read More]

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review

Spyro: Like most legends of early 3D gaming, Spyro had his name dragged through the mud after his initial outings. As soon as original developers Insomniac Games put the purple protagonist out to pasture to pursue other projects, a slew of mediocre sequels followed headed by teams who didn’t seem to understand Spyro’s charm. I’m glad to say that, with this wonderful remake of those original titles...[Read More]

Luigi’s Mansion Review

Luigi: “Luigi’s Mansion” was a surprising game on a system full of surprising games. The Gamecube was, in this reviewers eyes, a golden age for Nintendo’s finest franchise experimentation. A ghost-hunting adventure as gaming’s greatest second-banana? Sign me up. But even more surprising, however, is how much Nintendo have since supported this idea of Luigi as a spectral exterminator af...[Read More]

World Of Final Fantasy: Maxima DLC Review

Maxima: World of Final Fantasy was a huge surprise when it debuted in 2016. Despite having the unenviable task of rolling out a mere month before the behemoth that was Final Fantasy XV, it lived up to the series’ name and then some. It was, by all accounts, a wonderful celebration of everything the franchise had going for it up until that point, and it quickly became one of my favourite entries in...[Read More]

Lets Sing 2019 Review

Let’s Karaoke: I was surprised when booting up Let’s Sing 2019 on my PS4 – not just to find myself booting it up, mind you. No, I was surprised because it prompted me to plug in decade old hardware (the Singstar microphones of yore) – and even more surprised to realize I still had one kicking around my miscellaneous cables bin. You can play with a mobile phone instead, but this felt like a g...[Read More]

The Forest Review

The Forest: The Forest makes a strange first impression. Despite living in the shadowy realms of Steam’s early access for a long stretch of time, it’s launched in its finished version on consoles in a strange – but not unenjoyable – state. The title sees you trying to carve out a place for yourself on an increasingly treacherous island, but does the game end up being a home away from home or a hol...[Read More]

Dark Souls: Remastered Switch Review

Dark Souls: It feels like Dark Souls has been with us for far longer than just eight years. Since its release, it’s single-handedly created an entire new genre – the soulslike – and changed the face of gaming in unexpected ways. I used to feel reluctant in citing it as my favourite game of all time – not just because it felt particularly in-vogue to do so but because these things take time to see ...[Read More]

Just Dance 2019 Review

Dance, dance: Somehow I’ve managed to avoid Just Dance for the many, many iterations it’s enjoyed before 2019’s entry. I was always a big fan of Harmonix’s doomed Dance Central series and I guess I felt like trying out Ubisoft’s panda-infused dance party would be like cheating on a dead spouse. After kicking it with Just Dance 2019, I kind of wish I’d tossed out that old wedding ring a long time a...[Read More]

Diablo III: Eternal Collection Review

Eternal Collection: The Eternal Collection of Diablo III is a huge get for the Nintendo Switch. Packed with endless hours of enjoyment and a ludicrous amount of content, it represents a perfect marriage of the Switch’s portable sensibilities and Diablo’s pick-up-and-play addictiveness. To be able to grind and grab loot when I’m on my morning commute fulfils a dream I never knew I had, but looking ...[Read More]

The World Ends with You: Final Remix Review

The World Ends With You: The World Ends With You was one of my favourite Nintendo DS games. Its Japanese setting was a blast, its strange story about death was compelling and its characters were… well, we’ll get to that. But it was in its completely unique, dual-screened gameplay that TWEWY won my heart – so much so that I was worried how it would adapt to a single screen. Does it work, or does Fi...[Read More]

Red Dead Redemption 2 Review

I want to be a cowboy: Red Dead Redemption was, for the longest time, my favourite Rockstar game. As much as I love the GTA series – and some of the team’s more experimental games such as Bully and Table Tennis – there’s just something about their take on the Western that can’t be beat. There’s a romanticism to the Wild West that Rockstar somehow bottled in 2010, and in Red Dead Redemption II this...[Read More]

Starlink: Battle for Atlas Review

Toys-to-Life Beyond the Stars: Starlink feels like a product that feels raring to go. Ubisoft haven’t really messed with the whole Toys-to-Life genre before (I’m still mad that their amazing Mario/Rabbids toys weren’t Amiibos!!) and yet here they are with a killer launch line up for what might be the best the genre has to offer. With Starlink, Ubisoft offers choice above all else, and the results ...[Read More]
