    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...

    Review RiME

    RiME or reason?

    After what feels like forever, RiME is finally touching down on Switch.

  • Video RiME Is An Example Of How Not To Port A Game To Switch

    It's not all that pretty, to be honest

    RiME's finally out on Switch, and the results are... disappointing. The game's bewitching atmosphere and rewarding puzzles are swallowed up by some irksome performance problems, and in conclusion it's perhaps the worst way to experience the game - yet it's also the most expensive, at the time of writing. Our...

    Review Tallowmere

    A rogue release

    One genre that has seen a big resurgence in recent years - particularly in indie games - is the roguelike, and some have been popping up on the Switch eShop as a result. Crafting lengthy, well-designed games takes countless man-hours of good work, something that smaller developers will struggle with given limited resources and...

  • Feature 13AM Games on Runbow for Switch and Its Hopes for the Future

    "I wanna use that silly little IR camera. Like, what even is that?"

    It's easy to get drawn into the Switch eShop's current surge in momentum and get a little carried away, declaring it as a bright new dawn for the download store. That does a disservice to the early efforts of the Wii and DSi stores, and the notable improvements and variety of...

  • News Karnov Will Have His Revenge On The Switch eShop This Week

    Data East's Neo Geo brawler coming soon

    Data East's Neo Geo fighting game Karnov’s Revenge is coming to the Switch eShop this week, it has been revealed.

  • Random Looking Back On That Time When Mario Gatecrashed The UK Music Charts

    "We were shown into their boardroom, and in walked Miyamoto himself"

    We don't see many of them these days but once upon a time video games were prime inspiration for novelty songs. Titles like Pac-Man and Space Invaders both inspired popular singles, and in 1992 the situation was no different as tracks based on both Super Mario Land and Tetris...

    For justice!

    The upcoming Justice League movie marks the end of many years of speculation about how Hollywood would adapt one of DC Comics' most famous properties.

  • News Gradius III Gets the MSU1 Digital Audio Enhancement Treatment

    Option!

    Shmups! We love them and we are not shy to admit it.The Super Nintendo always fell short to the lush number of shmup offerings present on the PC Engine, Mega Drive and even the NES / Famicom.
