So, Nintendo’s long awaited Nintendo 64 expansion to their Nintendo Switch Online programme has finally landed, and I’ve had a bit of time to play through each of the games included in the service so far. At the time of writing, there are a total of nine games available on the platform – a numberContinue reading “Ranked: The Games of Nintendo 64 Online”
In preparation for a future playthrough of Dread, I’m taking a look at the earliest game in the series’ chronology – Metroid: Zero Mission.
Welcome to The Play-By-Play, a column where I’ll be writing about an episodic game series as I play through the season, sharing my thoughts on the storyline, the game, and generally any other things that I’ve picked up on. Today, we’re continuing our journey with Dontnod’s Life Is Strange 2.
The latest game in the long-running RPG series has finally arrived after a five-year wait, and after sitting down with it for a while, I’m happy to report… It’s brilliant.
We’re taking a look back at the most under-the-radar entry in gaming’s biggest RPG franchise, Final Fantasy V.

Fewer and fewer games were released, and the ones that were tended to be of average quality at best. At least, that’s how it seemed to me. Even before the ill-fated WiiU was announced, it wasContinue reading “Xenoblade Chronicles”

With the Wii however, IContinue reading “Muramasa: The Demon Blade”

The portability, the convenience of the double screens, the bright screens and non-distracting design of the console meant that it was super easy for me to just sink in and get lost in some fantasy world. I never had a GameBoy Advance SP withContinue reading “Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies”
Dragon Age II was the first Dragon Age game I bought, I’m not quite sure why. I popped it in the Xbox 360, played for about ten minutes and then thought that it might be a good idea to play the first game in the series before this one. I don’t know why it tookContinue reading “Dragon Age: Inquisition”
Back in 2013, I got my first real part-time job. I went to the interview, got asked to ‘sell’ a phone to the manager, and promptly revealed that I knew nothing about phones by reassuring him that the ‘screen was big’ several times. Not my best moment, but somehow I persuaded them to give meContinue reading “Persona 4: Golden”
