Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

ssb-wiiu-review

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 21/09/2014 SSB4-3DS* was rad and all, but let me tell you about a little game called SSB4-WiiU**. This game makes me feel like a kid again because in so many ways, whether intentional or not, it feels like a really […]

Hyrule Warriors

hyrule-warriors-review-score

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 20/09/2014 I feel like I need to start this review off by saying that I’m glad that “Hyrule Warriors,” isn’t preceded by “The Legend Of Zelda.” In fact, I think we’d all do well to pretend that any characters or […]

Shovel Knight

Platform(s): PC, Wii U & 3DS Release: 26/06/2014 I wasn’t really sure if I would enjoy this game. I’ve seen a few “8-bit” titles recently, and some of them turned out to be pretty good, I suppose? However, here was yet another one, and I […]

review-score_guacamelee-STCE

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 02/07/2014 When Guacamelee! launched on PS3 and PS Vita last year, I had a really great time playing it. As one of my favourite games of 2013, as well as one of the best games on the Vita to this day, this […]

Mario Kart 8

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 30/05/2014 Seemly out of nowhere, much like a blue shell, Mario Kart 8 is finally available, which in part, helps to justify the purchase of a Wii U for all of the patient Nintendo fans across the globe. When looking at […]

Child of Light

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 30/04/2014 Judging by all of the pre-release hype, which consisted of art-laden teaser trailers and keyhole glimpses at Child of Light, it seemed Ubisoft Montreal were working on something completely left of centre. The style and story-book narrative, coupled with insights into […]

LEGO The Hobbit

metal-gear-solid-ground_zeroes_review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 08/04/2014 I keep telling myself that I’ll get bored with the next LEGO game, and that Traveller’s Tales can’t possibly maintain their string of advances with every title. Then LEGO The Hobbit gets released, and not only am I happy to swallow […]

donkey-kong-country_tropical_freeze_review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/11/2013 Nintendo’s in full swing for rehashing old franchises for the Wii-U because nothing says “next-gen” like re-polished games from yesteryear. February brought us Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, which is actually somewhat of a misnomer given that the “Freeze” part of the […]

Super Mario 3D World

super-mario-3d-world-game-review-score

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 22/11/2013 Generally when we think of Mario, the first thought that pops into our heads is a small, potato-shaped, mustachioed man stomping on animals and smashing bricks. In fact, that single thought isn’t just a vague idea of who Mario […]

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

LEGO-MSH_review_gamecloud

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 13/11/2013 When a new Lego game releases, the staff at my local game store no longer have to ask whether I’m ordering it for my son, or myself. Lego and its gaming offspring may have begun as a children’s product, but it’s […]
