Nintendo Switch Event Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan. Here the very first public event for the Nintendo Switch was held. After yesterday’s show case by Nintendo, today was all about people getting their hands on the device for the first time and playing some of the new system’s games. The event itself was quite confusingly ran, with three separate queues before … Continue reading

Super Mario World – Revisited

The first game I bought for my Super Famicon was my all time favourite SNES game, so for me it was a no brainer, Super Mario World. Now I will be the first to tell you this game is wrapped in a sugary coat of nostalgia and sometimes that sweet wrapping can give you rose … Continue reading

Super Famicon (SNES) Revisited

I looked at my TV with bitter disappointment. It wasn’t the most important part of the guest house that I had chosen to stay at in Japan, but it was still so disappointing.

The Last of Us 2 – The Power to Change Females in Games

Titanfall has one of those moments, hearing the words ‘Your Titan is ready’ and then watching it tear from the sky with the sound of a jet engine piercing … Continue reading

GTA V Microtransactions?

There are a few rumblings that when GTA Online becomes available on October 1st it will use microtransactions in order to buy in-game currency. Whilst Microtransactions are no longer new they are also seen as the work of the devil, but is this unfair? What seems to get most people are these hidden little charges … Continue reading
