Review: Kirby's Dream Course (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Kirby's Dream Course (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Augusta this 'ain't

Kirby, being a lovable if slightly non-descript pink ball, can lend his hands — or flappy arms, whatever — to lots of things. Being shaped like a ball and all, he's indulged in pinball, for example, and when participating in his named spin-offs generally performs as the ball, rather than going all Mario and playing the sports...

Rage Quitting with Cloudberry Kingdom

Another coin for the swear jar

What has happened to the days of trial-and-error platformer gaming? Those old NES and Mega Drive titles which saw you repeating the same level over and over in order to finally make it to the far right side of the seemingly ever-scrolling screen?

Review: Mega Man X (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Mega Man X (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Marks the spot

By the time Mega Man X was released for the SNES, gamers and critics were already expressing concern about the classic series feeling stale. Mega Man had become formulaic and predictable, and while the NES games were still a lot of fun, there was no denying that they didn't evolve much from title to title. Mega Man X felt like a firm...

A Young Person Plays Super Metroid

Y CAN'T METROID CRAWL

I've been playing a videogame called Super Metroid Primes this week. It is not very good. When I saw that Dave had given the game a perfect score in his review last week, I was very excited to try it out for myself, especially considering that it was only 30p (or 30 cents, if you're on that side of the pond) on the Wii U...
