Is Cuphead going to join the Smash Bros. roster?

Oh man. Cuphead. I’m reluctant to say this owing to the roasting one reviewer received for his inability to play the game… But Cuphead? Yeaahhhh I suck at it. And I’m also not great with Smash Bros., although my brawling skills are gradually improving. So what would happen if Nintendo went out on a limb and combined these two punishingly difficult franchises?! It’s fair […]

Will Google Stadia be any good?

Yesterday, the fledgling start-up company Google announced that it was launching a brand new gaming platform. Titled Stadia, the new service promises to deliver better-than-console quality gaming without the need for any actual hardware. Oof. Basically, all of the games will be running in a top secret Google powerhouse and will be transmitted by the power of the internet onto […]

There’s a brand new Sonic game on its way

In news that will either delight or terrify you, it would seem there’s a brand new Sonic game in the works. And no, I’m not referring to the upcoming Team Sonic Racing, which is due out in May (exciting though that is!) The news comes courtesy of the head of Sonic Team – Takashi Iizuka – who took to the stage at the […]

I’m not ready for a diskless console

Rumour has it that the next iteration of Xbox hardware will be a diskless console. Now this makes a lot of sense – apparently, 80 per cent of video game sales (in the UK at least) are now digital, so you can hardly accuse Microsoft of trying to impose a lifestyle onto unwilling consumers. Like it or not, digital is […]

Pokémon Sword and Shield: Three reasons to be excited

Dang, it wasn’t called Pokémon Crown after all 😛 I can’t help but chortle though… The internet was surprisingly close! Yesterday, Nintendo announced two brand new titles for the Pokémon franchise, coming to the Switch in late 2019. Titled Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, these new games have been hotly anticipated ever since Nintendo launched its nifty handheld console. And […]

Top 5 best Sonic games

I don’t think there are many video game series that polarise in quality as much as Sonic the Hedgehog. I’ve been a fan since the MegaDrive days and have experienced my fair share of ups and downs. Indeed, the release of a new Sonic title is always tinged with a little bit of angst; “Will this one delight me or break me?!” But, […]

Anthem reviews: Is it any good?

The first Anthem reviews have begun to surface on the webosphere. The SF-inspired third person shooter-cum-RPG launches this week, courtesy of the developer BioWare and publisher EA. Set against the backdrop of a mysterious world that’s been seemingly abandoned by its creator gods, the player takes control of a humanoid ‘freelancer’ in a custom exoskeleton, in a desperate bid to save mankind […]

The stream was hosted on Saturday 16th February by Ash Kapriélov who, together with composer Peter Connelly and team, is leading the ambitious Tomb Raider: The Dark Angel campaign, which aims to produce a high-quality album of Connelly’s […]

Farewell, The Know – and thank you!

Ah, yesterday was a sad day. Rooster Teeth’s The Know closed its doors for the last time, re-branding itself as a ‘new’ gaming channel dubbed Inside Gaming. The future looks very bright for the team – and I wish them all the best – but I can’t help feeling a bit sad that The Know as we know it is, […]

When is Astral Chain coming out?

In the midst of an (arguably) lukewarm Switch Direct in February 2019, Nintendo did make a couple of intriguing announcements about upcoming games, not least the cyberpunk-inspired Astral Chain, which looks something like the lovechild of Final Fantasy and Cyberpunk 2077. But when is Astral Chain coming out, and will it be worth playing? Well, the first answer to that question is the 30th August 2019, […]

The original Crash Team Racing stuns youths

Prepare to feel old. The developer of the upcoming Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled has revealed that some of its younger contributors were… bemused, when they tried their hand at the original game. For those of you who don’t know, Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is a remake of the popular Crash Team Racing game from the late 1990s. It’s a faithful ‘remastering’ of the original title […]

Switch releases 2019: Three reasons to be excited

Wow, it seems ages since we last had a Nintendo Direct! I think the last ‘general’ one was in September 2018, as the one that followed in November was dedicated to that small indie title known as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. So, whilst we wait for something concrete from Nintendo, I thought I’d put a little something together to tide us […]
