    A new story trailer sets the scene

    The Fall was an intriguing title on Wii U, overcoming some flaws thanks to its creativity and spin on sci-fi storytelling tropes. It was good news, then, when developer Over The Moon confirmed that the sequel - The Fall Part 2: Unbound - would still come to Wii U in 2017. Unfortunately that version is no longer on...

    Review Soul Axiom

    It's got soul, man

    Soul Axiom is a spiritual successor to Master Reboot, a rather decent and interesting Wii U eShop title from Wales Interactive.
