Splatoon

splatoon-review-score

Developer: Nintendo Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 30/05/2015 Leave it to Nintendo to take the dullest, iterative and derivative genre of the times and shoot pink ink right in its face. I rarely find a reason to play realistic racing games or hyper-technical fighting games; […]

Mario Party 10

mario-party-10

Developer: Nintendo Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 21/03/2015 Mario Party 10 brings everyone’s favourite minigame filled board game to the Wii U with amiibo, the gamepad, and HD visuals. For better or for worse, this release inherits much of Mario Party 9’s ideas and qualities, […]

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

captain-toad-treasure-tracker-review

Developer: Nintendo Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 03/01/2015 I wasn’t expecting much with Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, but I’ll be damned if it wasn’t a great little title to start this year for Nintendo. You start playing the moment the game loads, placing you in […]

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-red

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

review-score_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

mario-kart-8-review-score

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

child-of-light-review-score

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 […]
