Jurassic World: That is one big pile of...

The trouble with reviewing a film like Jurassic World is that the original film is so iconic and eminently quotable, it's tempting to just write adapted one-liners as a way to make easy snipes. As the title suggests, I could say i...

 
 
 

Armchair Developer: Super Nintendo RPG

So, commenting on the Front Page article on Amiibos, I brought up the idea that Nintendo should make a dedicated game as a way to make proper use of their new collectible toys. A lot of other peopel seemed to like this idea, and it's b...

 
 
 

First Impressions: Mario Kart 8 DLC

So, it's finally here. Having pre-ordered the DLC back in September, I've been (chain)chomping at the bit to get to try out the new Mario Kart DLC, and I have to say, it doesn't disappoint. Given how open Nintendo were about ...

 
 
 

Without Mii

Crystal shards!/Real Game No Gimmicks! Two veteran girls fight round the outside! Round the outside! Round the outside! Guess who's back! Back again! Wii U's back! Tell a friend! Guess who's back/Guess who's back/Guess who's back/Gues...

 
 
 

In defence of Robocop 2

It's not strictly a 'game' thing, but fuck it. It's got guns, violence, dudes in power armour, and it had several videogame tie-ins on its release. It counts.  Anyways... certain schools of thought would have you believe that the ...

 
 
 

I just don't get the competitive Smash 'thing'...

A title like that is of course a fighting statement, so I'd best get me some good fighting music going in the background... It's weird though. I know that Smash has got a big following in the fighting game community (if somewhat f...

 
 
 
 

My unfavourite game: Morrowind

See, with all these blogs going up about the community's various favourite games, I thought I'd try something a little different. A piece on my most unfavourite game of all time. Morrowind. The high point of the Elder Scrolls franchise...

 
 
 

How stuff works Part 1: Editorial and Advertising

It's a funny old business. Funny old world, really. All a bit topsy turvy at the moment. Like everyone's running around stomping their feet everywhere, and the result is no-one quite knows where the floor is anymore.   I'm going to say thi...

 
 
 
 
 
 

GOTY Awards 2013: Best Cancelled Game

Sure, I said the follow up to the Most Average White Male Award would be Most Excessive Cleavage In A Female Character, but that one's taking a little while to put together. Differences in opinion amongst the judges, if you will. So in the ...

 
 
 
 

How zombies ate the brains of the gaming industry

Zombies are a weird thing. The idea of them has been around for ages, they helped kickstart the new wave of horror film-making back in the Sixties, and yet it feels like its only comparatively recently that they took over the world of popul...

 
 
 
 
 

I wrote a radio play about Monster Hunter

Because why the hell not? Seriously though, seeing all this hoopla about Monster Hunter 4, it kinda reminded me of seeing a guy go through a massive break-up. Which then gave me an itch to do some writing, and put a creative, anthropomorph...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Nintendo, and the Queen of England

It's amazing how these things go. I was looking at my blog, and thinking I should update it with some more non-Nintendo topics to balance things out... and then this week happened, we got a veritable plethora of Wii U related news, and now ...

 
 
 
 

How Jeremy Clarkson took over the games industry...

I didn't initially want to write this blog. See, it involved bringing up something I've already discussed in my last two blogs: the Wii U. I didn't particularly want to write a third successive blog about the console, when the truth is, I'v...

 
 
 

Nintendo: playing the long game?

It's been a mixed few weeks for us Nintendo fans. In fact, the past few months have been something of a smorgasbord regarding good news and bad. When the Wii U initially launched, it moved more units than either the PS3 or 360, and made Nin...

 
 
 

On Gamepads and controllers...

So, with the Wii U having been out for a few months now, people are getting to grips with the new controller Nintendo has thrown their way. I'm sure most readers are familiar with the Wii U gamepad, so all that needs saying is that it's a r...
