  • Video Take a Detailed Look at the Original "Legend of Zelda" Manga

    Just in time for the 30th anniversary of the English release

    Review Use Your Words

    You Know, Jack Would Be Proud

    No matter how great your intentions can be, it can be tough to break the ice at a party with a game. It’s truly hard to please everyone and trying to do so can be a descent into madness. Find something too complex and you’ll befuddle yourself in trying to explain the rules whilst losing your audience to sheer...

  • Video FIFA 18's Gamescom Trailer Shoots And Scores, But Can It Look This Slick On Switch?

    Back of the net

    EA has released a new trailer for FIFA 18 at Gamescom, and even if you have no interest in football (or soccer, if you're in America), you have to admit that it's pretty impressive. The clip - which is set to a rather mangled version of New Order's classic Blue Monday - showcases the stunning animation present in the title, with...

    Review Gunbarich

    Ball batting brilliance

    A 2001 arcade title, Psikyo’s Gunbarich is now available to purchase from the Switch eShop. A Breakout/Arkanoid-style game, the aim is to bat a ball around the screen destroying all the blocks to move on to the next stage where there is a new arrangement of blocks for you to remove.
