TumbleSeed Review (Nintendo Switch) – On a Roll

Tumbleseed boasts a jaunty aesthetic paired with gameplay that is as hard as it is rewarding. Its challenge is largely due to the control’s steep learning curve and in no small part to the player’s task: save the Tumbleseed and his homeland.

Paper Mario: Color Splash Review – Happy Accidents

Ask any Paper Mario fan which entry is the best in the series, and most will say the game Cube Classic Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door. I hate to disappoint, but Paper Mario: Colour Splash is not as good as Thousand Year Door, BUT it is still an incredibly endearing game and worth your time…

Metroid Prime: Federation Force Review – Galaxy Quest

Let’s get this out of the way, Federation Force is not a Metroid game in the traditional sense. Yes, it carries the Metroid Prime name, and it’s set in the same universe (after the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in fact), but there is no large, slowly-unfolding map to explore, no searching for suit…

Suicide Squad Breaks August Box Office Record

  We’ve been pretty amused by the large volume of “hate-viewers” who scrambled to put out early reviews of Suicide Squad since they didn’t actually watch it. It’s becoming more and more evident that presumptions and personal indifference have led these hate-viewers (people or movie critics who paid to see Suicide Squad despite hating all things DC)) to…

Injustice: New Suicide Squad Update reveals Topless Characters

While movie critics, composed largely of blog hacks that adore Disney, are convincing the public that DC/WB’s Suicide Squad is a disjointed mess, the Injustice iOS platform has added a number of the film’s infamous villains as playable card-fighters and Gear. Unfortunately, Killer Croc, Enchantress, and Diablo are not playable but they are Gear. More…

Yo-Kai Watch Review: Phantom Lord

The simplest way to describe Level-5’s Yo-Kai Watch is as Pokemon crossed with Ghostbusters by the talented folks behind Professor Layton. The comparison isn’t perfect, though.  There’s a greater focus on narrative and slightly darker tone than any of the above offerings, not only in the game’s story, but the design of the games collectable Yo-kai. There’s…

Star Fox Guard Review – Five Nights at Grippy’s

The first time I played Star Fox Guard was a couple of years ago at a Nintendo press event held in a basement in London. back then, it was a simply known as Project Guard –  a prototype tower defence game that Miyamoto had been tinkering with. The brief demo was simple, but strangely compelling. I remember…

Star Fox Zero Review – Do a Barrel Roll

Ever since I played the flying sections in Platinum’s Wonderful 101, I thought to myself: This is the studio that should be making the next Star Fox. From the way the Virgin Victory handled to the huge and impressive bosses, this seemed like a company pitching for a job they wanted in the subtlest way possible.  Someone…
