Aaron Daniels is a history graduate from Cardiff who beat Spyro the Dragon before most kids could even hold a controller and haven't really moved on since. If Nintendo told him to jump off a cliff he probably would, the amount of GameCube games and especially Amiibo he owns is more than a little worrying really, and he’s slightly uncomfortable writing this in the third person.

The Swindle Review – A Stitch in Crime

The F.B.I and cartoon character Dick Tracy, originators of the idiom “crime doesn’t pay,” were clearly idiots not familiar with modern video games. Given they came up with it in 1927 and were fictional respectively, that’s perhaps understandable; but between…

The NES Library on Nintendo Switch Online, Ranked

The Nintendo Switch’s online service finally launched last week to much fanfare (or furore, in many cases), and front and centre among its advantages – other than getting it for roughly £4 a year because my family pass thinks I…

De Blob 2 Review – Blob Mentality

The winner of the “best decapitated-Batman lookalike” competition 10 years running is back with a score to settle – with me personally I might add. While I adored the original release of the original De Blob back in the original…

The Worst Pokemon Game

Pokemon games are like flavours of crisp; everybody has a favourite and least favourite, there’s absolutely no consensus on which is best or worst, and debates on the subject get more heated than a McDonald’s Apple Pie on the surface…

Freedom Planet Review – Need Fur Speed

For all of the flack it catches, some pretty good things have come out of the Sonic the Hedgehog fan-base, all things considered – but no, I’m not talking about your hedgehog-unicorn OC who has all the superpowers and is…

Mega Man X: Legacy Collection 2 Review

(Note: Please refer also to my review of Legacy Collection 1 here – there are a lot of shared features between the two collections which are discussed there in much greater detail.) Mega Man has had a real pop-star life…

Mega Man X: Legacy Collection Review

It’s an interesting time to be a Mega Man fan, that much is certain; going from being Capcom’s ugly stepchild, locked in the attic with Nintendo desperately trying to slide snacks under the door, back to its former glory, with…

Bomb Chicken Review – Expollosive

I moved house this weekend. I mention it not as any sort of bragging, but because it hopefully serves as justification for the frankly embarrassing amount of fast food I’ve been getting through – delicately packing about 60 amiibo and…

Entirely Infallible Nintendo E3 Predictions

Ahh, E3. That wonderful arbitrary time of year when all the major gaming companies of the world descend upon a venue in Los Angeles to showcase how absolutely no games are coming out until at least September. E3 themselves seem…

Fox ‘n’ Forests Review: Pixel Your Poison

Fox ‘n’ Forests very deliberately harkens back to a golden age of gaming; which is to say, 1991. Back when renting video games was not just a thing but actually popular, and games were made brutally difficult kind of just…

The Problem with: Overwatch  

Or an alternative title: how to crucify yourself on the internet as quickly and cleanly as possible. Much like the “The Problem with: Breath of the Wild” article I put out on here a month or so ago (go read…

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Nintendo Switch Review

Max as a gaming character (I was about to use the word “icon” but let’s not get carried away) has had an interesting history – interesting enough that I’ve got nine tabs of research open and still don’t really understand…

Solo: An Introspective Adventure Review

It’s funny what association can do for a game’s appeal. I picked up Solo (which, by the way, there are MANY films and properties with which Solo shares a name, so well done for finding this review, really appreciate it…

Scribblenauts Showdown Review

The “Party Game” has had a very odd lifecycle, all things considered. Started out of nowhere, more or less, with the first of SEVERAL Mario Party games on the N64, they saw a spike in popularity on the casual-cuddling Wii…

The Problem with Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I’m gonna start this article with a preface. And I’m also gonna preface that preface with this preface because it needs to be said and also because you need to check your Semantic Satiation privilege. You lot need to chill.…
