  • Video The First 30 Years of Mega Man

    You can’t stop the rock!

    17th December is a big day for Capcom, as one of its top series and characters - Mega Man - celebrates its 30th birthday! The company started the party a bit early by announcing Mega Man 11, coming next year! But, it all began thirty years ago, when Capcom put forth a plan to create its first non-arcade port for the...

    Lots of room to vroom

    It’s still quite shocking to think that Link can now ride a bike in a Legend of Zelda game. Just in case you missed the announcement from The Game Awards 2017, the Master Cycle Zero is now available to unlock in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a reward for completing the story segment of the game’s second DLC...

  • News ARMS Version 5.0 Update is Coming This Year, With Another New Character

    The roster keeps growing

    ARMS, very much mimicking the approach seen in Splatoon 2, is a game that keeps on giving. Frequent updates have not only improved mechanics and balancing but have also added fresh modes and characters. The roster's grown rather nicely, as a result, and it seems that'll be the case once again with version 5.0. It's due...

    Review Human: Fall Flat

    A slapstick symphony

    It has been said that the essence of comedy is tragedy plus time. A good-natured pratfall here and there is enough to brighten up anyone's day, but when you play the role of both the audience and the victim of said pratfall, things get a little more complicated. Developer No Brakes has created an experience where...

    Review Enter The Gungeon

    Right to bear arms

    Nintendo Switch received one of the finest roguelike indie games in the business earlier this year with The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+. Now it has another in Enter The Gungeon. Much like Edmund McMillen's reworked masterpiece, ETG takes the basic form of a top-down twin-stick shooter. Dodge Roll's game, however, has an...

As explained in the video above, the shells are of high quality and are certainly a good bit of kit, but the journey to get to an actual...

    Review Vostok Inc.

    Solar powered

    Vostok Inc. is made up of a combination of ‘clicker’-style gameplay (where you essentially set things up and wait for results to happen with hardly any interaction) and twin-stick shooter moments (where you fight off aliens by shooting a whole host of weapons from your spaceship). The combination of the two might look a little mad...
