Luffy and his pirate crew from the cult classic Shonen Jump anime, One Piece. While there Continue Reading...

Pokken Tournament DX Review

Posted on by
Gotta Fight ‘Em All. In many a similar way to the exemplary port of the Wii U’s Mario Kart 8, wrapped up in a complimented version as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Nintendo’s new hardware hotness has once more been handed a AAA re-definition, and the very first from the Pokemon/Pocket Monsters franchise.

Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch Review

Posted on by
Splatoon 2 is the sequel to the original Wii U title. The system didn’t have many shooters so a paintball style where you play as a human/squid using ink based weapons really worked with newcomers to the game. Gameplay From first glance at Splatoon 2, I was shocked. It must be said that I played the first entry for just Continue Reading...

Arms Review

Posted on by
Sprung. Arms has fallaciously caught me with my guard down. Being anything but a conventional boxing title, Arms presents a truly unique Sports experience without ever spotlighting itself as one. With an ‘easy to play, hard to master’ premise, it’s wonderfully easy to step into the ring, but requires masterful arena movement, wise use of attack arsenal and swift thinking Continue Reading...

Minecraft Nintendo Switch Edition Review

Posted on by
Pixel Perfect. On a cold winter’s night, back in 2010, 12 of my hard earned Australian dollars were thrown willingly towards Minecraft’s Alpha version. Over the course of the next 7 years, I’d spend near 200 hours total in one of the most influential video games of the past decade. I’ve experienced the very best of Minecraft across a slew Continue Reading...

NBA Playgrounds Review

Posted on by
Slam Dunk? Almost. NBA Playgrounds, Developed by Saber Interactive and published by Mad Dog Games, is not too dissimilar to the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers: booming with potential, young in age, but still with work to do and room to improve for next season. There is so much to love in NBA Playgrounds, with core gameplay being incredibly addictive and it’s Continue Reading...

Puyo Puyo Tetris Review

Posted on by
While a price point of $60 AUD might be a little over the top for some, Puyo Puyo Tetris combines some of the greatest puzzling elements from two vastly different universes for what is one of the best conventional puzzle titles we have seen in some time. While it’s clear that there are some slight imbalances when it comes to Continue Reading...

Kamiko Review – Long live the Shrine Maiden

Posted on by
While I’m sure that the Nintendo Switch’s latest gift of pixel flamboyancy won’t be in the running for Game of the Year contention, Kamiko offers an incredibly fun, bite-sized rush of pixels to the brain at a price that is simply too tempting to pass up. While it will run you just under an hour’s worth of gameplay on your Continue Reading...

Has Been Heroes Nintendo Switch Review

Posted on by
Before writing my recount, I’d spent over nine hours with Has Been Heroes on Nintendo’s new hardware hotness. I’ve only completed a full game round once and unlocked one new hero from the vast selection. Difficulty is a talking point with Has Been Heroes, as is the steep learning curve and rough-around-the-edges visual get-up. However, some quirky humour and charm, Continue Reading...
