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.

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2+ Review

First of all, ow. Ow ow ow ow ow. Bandai-Namco, if you’re reading this (and I’m sure you are), please turn down the HD rumble on the Nintendo Switch – never has it felt so much like a game was…

Pokémon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon Review

It’s always tricky, coming to review one of these “updated” Pokémon games. Not least because my word processor refuses to recognise the word “Pokémon” and seems to think it’s some mysterious ancient glyph. But also because it’s difficult to know…

Super Mario Odyssey Review – The Pursuit of Cappy-ness

It’s been a good year for fans of 3D platformers, all things considered. It’s like waiting for a bus – you get criminally underappreciated by the gaming industry for years and then three turn up at once. I personally think…

Flame in the Flood Review – Nintendo Switch

I can’t claim to have an enormous amount of experience with the survival genre – about the best I can muster is “I was in the same room as somebody playing Don’t Starve once.” So let it be an even…
