    Review LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

    It's about time

    The LEGO effect has benefited many a popular fiction franchise since 2005, from Star Wars to Jurassic Park to Harry Potter. Throughout that time, though, there’s arguably been no better fit for the Danish toy brand than Marvel. With the comic giant’s peerless roster of colourful characters, developer Traveller’s Tales has the...

    Nope, it doesn't look quite like that, although we kinda wish it did. It looks more like this: We still don't have a release date for WWE 2K18 on Switch, but YouTube user Gruby Nerd has apparently managed to get his hands on a copy "from one of the small shops" and...

    Review VVVVVV

    A VVVVVVery good time

    When we first reviewed VVVVVV for the 3DS way back in 2010, we praised it for its ZX Spectrum / Commodore 64-style graphics, along with its simple and intuitive gravity-shifting mechanics. Not much has changed about VVVVVV in the intervening years, but truly, we don't mind.  If you haven't tried VVVVVV before it's a...

    Two Tribes is a name that will be familiar to many a Nintendo fan after the excellent Toki Tori series, a puzzle platformer with some very light Metroidvania elements.

    Back in 2011, L.A. Noire was a revelation. It captured the feel of 1940s Los Angeles in manner that was so convincing and immersive that it put many live-action TV shows and Hollywood movies to shame; centered around the earnest and driven detective Cole Phelps, the now-defunct Team...
