Google Stadia

After a huge reveal in March this year, the release date for Google’s cloud-gaming platform seemed an awful long way away. There was a lot of excitement for the platform […]

Dungeon Mayhem

I’ve talked quite a bit on here about my love for tabletop roleplaying, and old school Dungeons & Dragons in particular. Though not an RPG itself, Dungeon Mayhem is a card game ostensibly set in the D&D universe, albeit with a much more cartoony look than players may be used to – along with very simple gameplay.

Well, that escalated quickly…

The digital ink has barely dried on my very first Nintendo Life review – and yet, here’s another one! Thank you to everyone who was kind about my Beast Quest review, especially those of you who wanted me to get a chance to review a decent game next. Your wish came true! So without any further ado – here’s my […]

Chains of Fury – Preview

It’s not often that a game’s press release is brought to my attention and immediately grabs me with such a striking and instantly appealing visual style, but Chains of Fury has done just that. With a comic book style that looks incredibly close to the aesthetic of artists such as Mike Mignola – clean, colourful and with great, copius use […]

Let People Enjoy Things

I was afraid of stepping into the gaming side of social media for a very long time, concerned that it was a toxic cesspool of problematic views and targeted harassment. Thankfully, for a very long time I seem to have kept away from those aspects and my Twitter feed is generally full of positive, welcoming, supportive and inclusive people. It’s […]

Hello Neighbor

Version Played: Xbox One (via Game Pass) Horror games are massive at the moment, fuelled in part by the rise of YouTube reaction videos. Horrific, graphic content doesn’t seem to […]
