Super Nintendo Review – The Magic Little Box Of Awesome

It’s star date 11.4.1992 after using our ship the UK SS Enterprise we have managed to sling shot round the sun and arrive at Nintendo HQ as they release their answer to the Sega Megadrive… Nintendo wanted to capitalise on their highly successful NES and needed to bring something special to the fight as Sega had struck a massive blow with the Megadrive.

Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour PS1 Review

The late 90’s and early 2000’s were saturated with Kid-friendly karting games intended to ride on the tailcoats of more successful and well-known franchises such as Mario Kart and Crash Team Racing. If you could name a popular kids TV show, movie or Video game it was pretty much guaranteed to have been converted into a Kart racer at some point. Most of these followed a generic formula of choosing ...[Read More]

Diddy Kong Racing Nintendo 64 Review

Anyone who has ever owned or indeed ever played an N64 will have no doubt heard the classic argument of which Kart racer is better, Mario Kart 64 or Diddy Kong Racing? Whilst Mario Kart is arguably the more popular of the two, if only due to it’s highly commercialised star, Diddy Kong racing is certainly remembered fondly by all those who were bold enough to step outside of the box.

Here’s why Uncharted Drake’s Fortune is still alive & kicking

I have to be honest, I was a late bloomer when it came to playing any of the Uncharted games, mainly because I had a PS4 and then switched to Xbox – fortunately I now enjoy a multi-platform experience. Teaching you guys how to suck eggs isn’t where I’m aiming to go with this article, especially if (which most people already have) you already bought and played through the entire collection – let al...[Read More]

Halo Wars 2 – Command & Conquer eat your heart out

I’m not sure what took me so long to purchase this game; I had been pondering the idea of getting it for a while but couldn’t bring myself to part with the cash. A friend explained that Halo Wars is completely different to the standard first-person Halo series and compared it to Command and Conquer as the type of gameplay. I was in GAME last week and saw that a copy had gone into the sale at £30 w...[Read More]

Here’s why I’m only playing Resident Evil 7 Biohazard once

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or simply have never played any of the Resident Evil franchise, you’ll no doubt have heard about the scare factor that is linked with these games – Biohazard is no exception. Aside from the things that go bump in the night approach though, is there any real reason why you’d want to play this game again after completing the main storyline? Trophies and Achieve...[Read More]

5 unforgettable moments from Batman The Telltale Series

As a self-confessed geek, I’m somewhat a fan of anything DC or Marvel related to say the very least. After playing through Game of Thrones and The Wolf Among Us Telltale titles I was a little excited when they announced Batman was getting it’s very own Telltale game available in the second half of 2016. What was interesting was the game’s price fluctuation – it started out around £33 from Amazon a...[Read More]
