In all honesty, I can find little to fault in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. From top to bottom, the game is so immaculate in all regards that it has made me a lifetime fan of the series and also inspired me to want […]

Rakuen Review

Rakuen is a beautiful story about a sick boy and his Mum, who, together, travel to a fantasy world so he can make a wish. To do this, however, he’ll first have to make new friends and help those around him find closure. What makes […]

I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting from Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. Like many others, I think the biggest draw was that it’s another SFII remix game, which have traditionally been well received in the past and a joy to play, […]
