Everyone, I’d like to welcome you to Friday. Let’s celebrate this momentous occasion by buying a few discounted games.

Today is the start of BT games’ annual Winter Sale {Which doesn’t look that great anyway (GET OUT OF MY SALES PO...

So you think Nintendo’s in trouble? How wrong you are.

With the lacklustre reception for the Wii U everyone jumped on the ‘Nintendo is going down in fire’ bandwagon. Most people tend to forget that they’ve been around for a very long time and have had major success over the years. When their consoles aren’t doing that great (*looks at N64, GameCube and Wii U) their handheld business is making a killing. They’ve also got t...

This Year’s E3 Game Critic Awards Nominees Have Been Revealed

Now that E3 is done and dusted, we’ve got a few things to look forward to, specifically the Game Critics Awards. While most media outlets will post their own E3 award posts, this is one of the few award ceremonies which combines the opinions of various sites.

Why Devil’s Third is now a Wii U Exclusive

Tomonobu Itagaki has always been famed as a designer not scared to exploit Dead or Alive‘s “jiggly physics” and adding a stern element of violence to the Ninja Gaiden series. It is for these very reasons that the industry was shocked to hear that after THQ’s closure that Devil’s Third would move exclusively to Nintendo’s Wii U. While Itagaki’s ideals seem ...

What’s Not Delayed? (Part II)

In case you missed it, yesterday I explained that the year 2014 was not all lost. There are still many games coming out this year that you should be excited about and that it’s not all about 2015 just yet. Sure, 2015 has some epic titles coming out, but to fill the wait for those there are plenty of games coming out which will be worth our hard earned money. Here are 5 more: Sherlock Holmes: Crime...

Miyamoto On Cross-Platform Purchases

In a recent board meeting type of interview the iconic video game developer had plenty to say with regards to Nintendo’s E3 2014 showing. One of the topics that was brought up was whether or not Nintendo would be open to making games that run on both a handheld system as well as a traditional home console. The example was made that Super Mario Bros. 3 had just released on Virtual Console on ...

Review: Super Castlevania IV (Wii U, SNES)

How deep can you sink your teeth into this?

What’s Not Delayed? (Part I)

We’ve all heard the jokes, “2014 has been delayed to 2015”, and it’s understandable considering just how many games were promised for this year are now only coming next year. The thing is that we seem so focused on what’s been delayed that we don’t actually realise what is still coming out this year. Well it’s time you all got a reminder, and understood ju...

Mario Didn’t Travel Very Far to Save Princess Peach

I can’t say I’ve ever thought about how far Mario actually traveled to save Princess Peach in Super Mario Bros., but for some reason someone did think about it, and it worked it out. You’d think that travelling through various landscapes and castles, that Mario search all corners of the Earth to find the damsel, but as it turns out, she was only about 5.4 km away. Nick Greene fro...

What game pushed each console to its limits? (Part 4 of 5)

We all just about lose our heads when we receive bits of ‘next generation’ console news towards the end of a current console cycle. And for good reason, at that stage the previous generation strains under the pressure to keep up with the PC format (yes, I know), as that gradually grows and improves when it comes to hardware. Question is: What game pushed the various consoles to their l...

Can we expect co-op Legend of Zelda on the Wii U?

Nintendo are masters at keeping secrets, as their E3 conference video proved earlier this month. In this very video they showcased their new Legend of Zelda project and had us all jumping with joy. Outside of the world being shows and looking something like Legend of Zelda meets Skyrim there’s little else known about Links new adventure… expect that we can get to the mountains in the d...
