Sonic movie: Should Sonic the Hedgehog have fur?

Yes I was rather surprised about this. It’s fair to say that – when it comes to Sonic the Hedgehog – any announcement regarding an upcoming project is likely to incite a fair amount of venom. And I apologise for saying that, fellow Sonic fans – but it’s kind of true. Don’t feel bad. Like, I’m a lifelong Doctor Who fan, but I still […]

The Nintendo Creators Programme is closing

Brace yourselves for some terrible news – Nintendo is closing down the Nintendo Creators Programme. A beacon of light that once represented hope in the darkness has been extinguished; never again will we know the true meaning of peace and freedom. And now, a bit less sarcastically, some news about what Nintendo is replacing the Creators Programme with 😉 The […]

How to prevent the next Sonic game from sucking

I’m fairly sure that the question of ‘how to prevent the next Sonic the Hedgehog game from sucking’ is one that causes many sleepless nights in Tokyo, and indeed lots of flip-chart paper. And before anyone gets offended, when I talk about the next Sonic game I’m not referring to the upcoming Team Sonic Racing from Sumo Digital. I mean, yes it is technically a Sonic title, […]

Fallout 76 bugs: Bethesda addresses key issues

I wouldn’t want to be the Betheseda community manager right now. As you may have heard, the studio’s latest game Fallout 76 launched a couple of weeks ago (after a slightly controversial beta period) and instantly gamers discovered a slew of serious bugs and other glitches that were tarnishing their game experiences. If anything was going to echo the mood of a […]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has leaked

With less than two weeks to go until the release of the hotly-anticipated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it would appear that a number of super-lucky fans have managed to get hold of the game early. Nintendo isn’t actually too bothered about this. It considers ‘no publicity to be bad publicity’ and has allowed the subsequent YouTube videos to remain, hoping that […]

Tomb Raider III is 20 years old!

Man, Tomb Raider III is a hard game! I was a very young, innocent raider when I first played Lara Croft’s third globe-trotting adventure, and I was in awe of its zany colours, its soundtrack, its storyline, its environments, its weapons… and Croft Manor! Never before had it looked so lush. But when I tried to scramble my way to the end […]

What is the No Man’s Sky: Visions update?

I really respect No Man’s Sky. I’ve always said it’s a game that I will defend to anyone, and if you’re one of the people who didn’t feel as though you were getting good value for money when it launched in 2016, I think it’s fair to say that the developer Hello Games has more than made up for it since.

Pokémon: Let’s Go is getting review bombed

You know the score: if a major franchise does something you don’t like, the respectable thing is to take to the internet and to do everything within your power to make sure it suffers and BURNS. That’s how most problems get solved, right? The latest victim of the webosphere’s pitchforks is the newest entry in the Pokémon series: Pokémon: Let’s Go, […]

Is Red Dead Redemption 2 too long?

Yes I’m going there. It’s always so much easier to nit-pick as opposed to praise, and with Red Dead Redemption 2 receiving such unanimous acclaim from every corner of the internet, I feel it’s my moral duty to chime in with my niggles about this beautifully crafted game, with which I have a complex relationship. Oof. There is no denying the […]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: What is Spirits Mode?

I think this blog post is going to be more for my benefit than anybody else’s! During its recent Direct, Nintendo shared some new information about the upcoming Spirits Mode that will feature in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I say “new information” – it was technically an announcement of the worst kept secret in the video game industry, as some canny […]

New AAA Five Nights at Freddy’s game planned

Uhh, hello. Hello, hello. Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon has revealed that a new triple AAA addition to the franchise could soon be on its way. In a lengthy blog post on Steam, the video game developer updated FNAF players on his current plans for the game series, including the interesting proposition that jump-scare fans could soon have a big […]

Pokémon Let’s Go reviews: Is it any good?

There are still a couple of days to go before the latest Pokémon titles Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! hit the shelves, but the first reviews have started to trickle in – and thanks to the fount of all knowledge that is Metacritic, we already have some indication as to how this pocket monstering adventure is going to play […]

Today is Tuesday 13th November which means that the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has finally arrived – along with a bunch of online opinions to help you decide whether you’d like to buy it or not. Gamers of the 90s (and possibly later) may affectionately remember the cute dragon-led platformer from the glory days of the original PlayStation, and whilst to some degree […]

PlayStation Classic reviews: Is it any good?

The first reviews for the PlayStation Classic have started to filter in, and they’re… mixed. Lukewarm, you might say; not unlike the reaction to the console’s announcement. For those of you who are unfamiliar, the PlayStation Classic is a miniaturised version of the original PlayStation console from 1995, which comes with 20 pre-loaded titles and a faithfully recreated PS controller […]
