Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden

I haven’t been satisfied with a Dragon Ball game for some years now. Where Dragon Ball Xenoverse took some long overdue steps in new directions, it wandered a little far from entertaining mechanics for my liking. Extreme Butōden, I hoped, would sit on the other […]

Almost everyone has played a Mario Bros. game in the last 30 years, on one of the numerous Nintendo consoles that supported the protagonist plumber. With more than 40 million Mario titles sold, there are favourite games, eras and characters with each new player. If […]

Blood Bowl 2

Oh, Games Workshop, you IP-nazi, money-grubbing monster, how I love to hate you and hate to love you. I played 40K almost religiously back in the days of my 14-year old youth, but nowadays, I’m stuck with not having money and not wanting to fund […]
