Monster Hunter: World

Looking back, Monster Hunter is a franchise that’s grown like no other over the years. However, despite its immense popularity in Japan, it’s always struggled to pick up traction in the West – possibly due to the fact the series is often lacking when it comes […]

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a game for which I’ve been waiting many years. Since the Budokai Tenkaichi games, the go-to style for Dragon Ball games – and anime games in general – has been the 3D arena-style fighter those games popularised. It makes sense, and […]

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds
