As someone who never owned a Wii U, I applaud Nintendo’s strategy of re-releasing their first-party back catalogue on the Switch. The quality of the ports to date has mostly been excellent, and while some of these titles have included additional content and others have […]

Kirby Star Allies

My first Kirby experience was Kirby’s Pinball Land on Gameboy back in the mid-90s, and as I only ever had three games for that system, it got played a tonne. I didn’t necessarily enjoy it enough to want the other titles as they came out, […]

Attack on Titan 2

In theory, an Attack on Titan game sounds like a great idea. The exhilarating speed of hunting 50-foot tall titans is unquestionably excellent in theory, and when the first game, Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom, released in 2016, it presented a flawed formula that […]

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

My first ever experience with the Xenoblade series was Chronicles X on the Wii U, which I had tried after hearing the hype of the earlier games. While this game felt like a soulless grind to me, I was told that this was not the […]

Sonic Forces

An atrocious 25th Anniversary of the Blue Blur last year saw the announcement of two brand new Sonic games: the first of which was intended to be a revival of Classic Sonic and the other the next entry in the mainline modern Sonic games. The […]

WWE 2K18

I can’t correctly describe the odd phenomenon that is professional wrestling without writing an entirely separate piece by itself. It’s so vastly different to almost any other fandom that exists, in that within the real world it has lived within an entirely fictitious world of […]
