  • News TIME Names the Nintendo Switch Its Number One Gadget of 2017

    The SNES Classic Edition takes 6th place, too

    Just recently TIME named the Switch as one of the best inventions of 2017, albeit it was a rather peculiar list. Nintendo's hybrid device has now arguably earned a greater honour from the respected publication, however, being named the number one gadget of 2017. As a list focused on cool technology,...

    Cole Phelps is one of the most unlikeable video game protagonists I’ve ever had the pleasure of vaulting over a wall in pursuit of a fleeing perp, or accidentally propelling into the back of a parked Buick while at the wheel of a siren-wailing Nash Super. The leading man of Rockstar’s L.A. Noire, developed by the...

    When Nintendo revealed HD Rumble back in January and gave initial hands-on impressions of 1-2-Switch we marvelled at its fidelity; as an effect it's been used well in various ways, with highlights perhaps being racers like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and FAST RMX. Of course, the subtle capabilities of the rumble...

    Review Lumo

    Triumphant return of a lost genre

    Upon launching a Switch game you don’t expect to see a ZX Spectrum loading screen, but that’s precisely what happens with Triple Eh? Ltd’s Lumo. It’s entirely appropriate for this isometric platformer, however, as the 8-bit computer featured a number of classic examples of the genre. As well as being fun to...

    Just because a game has a great concept, doesn’t mean the end product will be the same. Mario Party: The Top 100 is an incredible idea on paper. With over a dozen titles released and a combined total of over eight hundred minigames, this series has been long overdue for some kind of compilation; it’s...

    Review Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

    Relax and stay a while

    It’s still hard to comprehend a series as obscure yet mundane as Animal Crossing has had so much success since its inception. Apart from minor similarities to The Sims and Harvest Moon, the concept of the original game wasn’t really akin to any other title available on the market at the time of its release. Unlike the...
