Switch line-up 2018: Is Nintendo bluffing?

Okay I’m a little late to the party on this one, but as I reported last week, Nintendo’s share prices haven’t been in the happiest of places – presumably in the aftermath of the E3 presentation that left some people underwhelmed. Is Nintendo’s 2018 Switch line-up strong enough to reassure shareholders? Overall, I think there’s a lot to be excited […]

Mysterious tweet: Could a PS5 announcement be imminent?

A cryptic tweet from PlayStation Russia has sparked some lively debate in the darker corners of the Twittersphere. (If a sphere can have corners.) Could a major PS5 announcement be incoming? Here’s the offending tweet, for those of you who speak Russian: Приготовьтесь #длятехктоиграет pic.twitter.com/KbYWfIa5ps — PlayStation Россия (@PlayStationRU) July 3, 2018 Now, unless “Приготовьтесь #длятехктоиграет” means “PS5 announcement #VerySoon” […]

Octopath Traveler reviews: What’s the verdict?

Good news! The first of the Octopath Traveler reviews are in, and by all accounts, the game looks set to become a smash hit. Which is good news for Nintendo. Octopath Traveler is an RPG exclusive for the Nintendo Switch, created by the Japanese developer Acquire. Artistically speaking, it’s a striking mishmash of pixel art and funky Instagram filters; much […]

Latest Nintendo news: Share prices plummet

In the latest Nintendo news, it appears that yesterday wasn’t the best of times for the video game company. According to a report on Nintendo Life, the brand’s share prices plummeted 5.27 per cent at the Tokyo Stock Exchange on Wednesday.

Is it time to let go of Green Hill, Sonic?

Say goodbye to Green Hill Sonic. Please. Think of the children.When Sonic burst onto our TV screens in 1991, he caused quite a stir. Players who had been previously constrained to the strolling pace of an Italian plumber suddenly found themselves defying gravity and somersaulting over cavernous spaces with all the finesse of a Russian trapeze artist. And the first […]

Honest Lara Croft video lands!

Screen Junkies have released an ‘honest’ Lara Croft video. Specifically, a trailer for the Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander. Actually, they’ve gone about it slightly differently this time. The team over at Screen Junkies have combined Lara Croft’s latest outing with the science fiction epic Pacific Rim: Uprising, making a spoofvertisement that pokes gentle fun at both franchises. According to […]

Is Google developing its own video game console?

A video game console from Google? Would it want to know my location? Would it be seamlessly integrated with my sofa? Would it hurt?? It’s tempting to let the imagination work overtime but the word on the street (and by “the street” I mean the internet) is that Google is developing some sort of video game hardware that could take […]

Review: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

Have you tried The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit yet? It’s from the universe of Life is Strange which, to be honest, I have yet to play. (I say “yet” as if this is something I am on the cusp of embarking on.) I may. I might. It’s possible. Anyway, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit caught my eye during […]

Is Jim Carrey about to be cast as Doctor Eggman?

“Get a load of this!” Jim Carrey is apparently the ideal choice to play Doctor Eggman, according to Hollywood. Or more specifically, Deadline, who leaked the story. The actor, known for playing zany, slightly off-the-wall characters in movies such as The Mask and Batman Forever is reportedly in talks to take over the world in a live action movie adaptation […]

Top 5 scariest Tomb Raider levels!

Tomb Raider levels are not generally known for their tranquillity. Unless you feel a strange sense of calm drift over you every time a knife-wielding psychopath leaps out of the shadows. (I’m thinking Dragon’s Lair for the uninitiated. Hardly a snooze fest.) That being said, the Tomb Raider series is peppered with moments of beauty. Remember the beach from Tomb Raider […]
