Science proves that Xbox players are superior

Firstly, apologies for the somewhat click-baity title, but it was too juicy to resist! I stumbled across this news story during my daily Google Alerts skim and it seemed amusing enough for a write-up. Science, it would seem, has finally demonstrated that people who game on Xbox consoles are in fact the more talented players. Discuss. Actually, there isn’t that much […]

Tomb Raider has arrived on the Nintendo Switch (sort of)

Great news – the original Tomb Raider game from 1996 has just been released on the Nintendo Switch! The beloved title, which was unceremoniously shunned from 2018’s PlayStation Classic console, has finally found its way onto the Nintendo handheld. It’s a bit like evolution on steroids. However, for Nintendo it’s a kick in the pants, as the release is actually borne out […]

What are Xbox Game Pass Quests?

The gamification of a games console – who’d have thought it! Microsoft has just announced the launch of a new service connected to its Game Pass subscription for the Xbox One. Known as Xbox Game Pass Quests, the new service enables players to go on monthly gaming missions for the acquisition of points, which can then be redeemed in the […]

Is Pokémon Crown the next Pokémon game?

Let’s weigh-in on some internet conspiracy theories – it’s been a while. Like many people, I’ve recently reached the end of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and whilst there appears to be a wealth of intriguing post-game content, my sights are now set on what other delights the Pokéverse can offer me in 2019. When can I get my next Pokémon […]

What is the Mad Box console?

You’d have to be slightly mad to launch a new console in this day and age, right? Right. Slightly Mad Studios is doing just that, and it’s being dubbed the Mad Box. The news of this latest hardware development came about after the CEO of Slightly Mad, Ian Bell, took to Twitter to announce his company’s console vision. Here’s how […]

Is a Sonic Adventure remake on the cards?

I suppose we need to be cautious about reading too much into those “off the cuff” comments that people make in interviews, but this is the internet, and I am only too happy to fan the flames of speculative discourse. Kuu! Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka recently gave an interview to Retro Gamer in which he spoke about the development of […]

My favourite games of 2018

Now is the winter of our disc content! I think I played more new games in 2018 than in any other year. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case for a lot of people, particularly given the barrage of new titles that assaulted players’ wallets in the later months. And to be honest, I don’t think I […]

Top 5 Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider levels

So for those of you who are less familiar with the segmentation of the Tomb Raider franchise, seasoned raiders usually divide the series into two camps: the Core Design titles (which comprises Tomb Raiders one through six) and the Crystal Dynamics titles (everything after 2003.) I love lists, and I’ve previously described my top five favourite levels of the ‘classic’ (Core Design) period of […]

Kingdom Hearts 3 has leaked

The more I track video game news, the more I realise how strangely common it is for titles to leak onto the webosphere looong before their official launches. But in the case of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, could a new record have been set? The upcoming game from publisher Square Enix isn’t due to hit shelves until January 25th (if […]

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 […]
