And it only took 20 years!
Throughout the history of the Pokémon anime series, one thing has remained constant: Ash Ketchum was born to lose. Despite participating in numerous leagues over the past few decades, this plucky trainer has never tasted ultimate success; while he has undoubtedly improved over time and teaches us that not all heroes are...
Carts and CDs, all on one device
Love them or loathe them, flash cartridges are here to stay. From their early origins as a basic means of loading up ROMs on authentic hardware, we've seen these often misunderstood products grow in both scope and stature – and Terraonion's Mega SD could perhaps be considered the zenith of the conc
"It’s a small industry. Actions have consequences"
Nicalis is a company that will need no introduction to Nintendo fans. It has been responsible for bringing some amazing titles to Wii, 3DS, Wii U and Switch, including Cave Story+, Blade Strangers, Crystal Crisis, Ikaruga, VVVVVV,
On the cutting edge?
Gaming-focused hardware maker Razer has made a name for itself with its range of computer, tablet and smartphone devices, and it would appear the company is about to release a product which takes inspiration from the Nintendo Switch. The Singapore-based firm filed a patent for a 'gaming controller for mobile device and method...
What makes them so special?
People love to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with GameCube-style controllers, and that's a fact that hasn't been lost on third-party peripheral makers. Exlene is one such manufacturer, and it has come up with two GameCube-style pads for Switch that aim to scratch that itch for people who are in the market for a decent...

Update (11th Sep, 15:30 BST): Koei Tecmo Games has been ordered to pay approximately $1.3 million in compensation after it was ruled that the company had infringed upon two of Capcom's patents. The case was first opened back in 2014 (see below), with Capcom arguing that the two separate patents had both been infringed upon. At the...
How much time do you have?
One of the things we really like about Nintendo Switch is the fact that it keeps a record of how many hours you've played a game for, so you can add up just how much of your life you've poured down the metaphorical sink; time you will never, ever get back. Sorry, where were we? Oh yes, that play time counter. It's a great...

Enjoy! The Sega Dreamcast turns 20 today – it launched on November 27th, 1998 in Japan – and...
Update on the Labo kit on the way?
While it may not have been quite as convincing as other VR offerings in the market, Nintendo's Labo VR kit was a likeable experiment which proved that even on tech as humble as Switch, a decent virtual reality experience could be achieved. VR modes have since been added to several key releases, and it would seem...

That's Mr Bowden in the purple hat, if you hadn't guessed All good things must come to an end, and for Nintendo UK Community Manager James Bowden, the end is nigh. The man famous for his fetching line in headgear is leaving Nintendo UK and moving onto pastures new, and we couldn't bear the thought of him...
It's dangerous to go alone
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BotW) is almost gleeful in the way it casts aside the traditions of the series to present an open-world adventure unlike any other. Not only is protagonist Link relieved of his signature green tunic and iconic hat (a
Level up quickly and make a new friend for the Jump-Start Research quest

Game now has a 9.0 rating
Update (Fri 6th Sep, 2019 15:45 BST): It would appear that Metacritic has taken action against review-bombers and has nuked a whole bunch of negative reviews. As a result, Astral Chain now stands at a 9.0 rating (thanks to Quarth for the heads-up). While it's good to see that little issue solved, the negative rev
"Are you okay?"
The news that Terry Bogard is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has triggered some rather polarising responses from Nintendo fans. For gamers of a certain vintage, Bogard's name is synonymous with SNK's superb lineage of one-on-one fighting games, stretching all the way back to 1991's Fatal Fury: King of Fighters (not to be...

"Good luck! You'll need it!"
Smash TV was one of those quintessential '90s arcade titles that got ported to every console known to man and was generally hailed as a ruddy good time by all who experienced it. Despite getting an unconnected sequel in the form of 1992's Total Carnage, Smash TV was never really iterated upon in the decades that followed...
"We've got a bit of a reputation for putting googly eyes on everything"
Yesterday, we reported on the news that the upcoming Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will employ over 60 'tonics' to change the way the game looks and plays. Tonics were a part of the original Yooka-Laylee, too, and it's great to see them return in this new title.
