Sakurai, These Mii Costumes are Getting Ridiculous

July 31, 2015 | by Rhys Wood

Everyone loves Miis. Nintendo’s avatar creation system added a lot of personality to the Wii when it launched in 2006, allowing users to project themselves into various games, starting with the now legendary Wii Sports and more recently in Super Smash Bros. as playable fighters…

Redefining Video Games with Her Story

Redefining Video Games with Her Story

July 30, 2015 | by Ryan Dean

Define gaming. Go on, there’s no pressure, just have a go. Think of it like a high school English exam if you want; “there’s no right answer here” etc. Perhaps, in its basest form, video gaming is the act of using a predetermined set of controls to operate a programme? Nice try…


Downtime, Is It Acceptable?

July 29, 2015 | by Nathan Anton

To bring everybody up to speed, PlayStation Network has been having trouble recently and spontaneously goes offline for our enjoyment. Maintaining a massive system like PlayStation Network is hard work, we can probably all agree with this fact…

Realistically, what can we expect from the Nintendo NX

What Can we Expect From the Nintendo NX?

July 23, 2015 | by Adam Vjestica

Transformation was the theme behind Nintendo’s Digital Event during this year’s E3, but it wasn’t supposed to happen like this. The untimely passing of Satoru Iwata has left the company in a state of mourning, along with its fans…

The Last Guardian & Sony’s Big Indie

July 18, 2015 | by Ryan Dean

You’d be forgiven for having all but lost hope in The Last Guardian; since its original announcement way back in 2007 for the last generation, the Team Ico lead project has flown largely under the radar to say the least. That was, of course, until this year’s E3…

Addressing Mental Illness Through Video Games

July 13, 2015 | by Ryan Dean

A few weeks ago, gaming idealist that I am, I wrote an article about an upcoming release that would hopefully change things up a bit in an industry that had gotten a little stale. That game was Hellblade, a spiritual successor to Heavenly Sword from Ninja Theory…

These PSone games deserve a remaster

These PSone Games Deserve a Remaster

July 6, 2015 | by Ryan Dean

Capcom’s remaster (of a remaster) of Resident Evil that launched earlier this year was somewhat of a double-edged sword for the industry. On the one hand, it gave gamers the perfect opportunity to delve into a truly genre defining title…

Why I chose Heroes of the Storm as my MOBA

Why I Chose Heroes of the Storm as my MOBA

July 3, 2015 | by Vince Shuley

Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBAs) can be an intimidating affair. As I wrote of my experience trying DOTA 2 earlier this year, plunging into the deep end with a complex MOBA such as DOTA2 can quickly lead to frustration, with little recourse but to simply tough it out while you learn your hero’s strengths, weaknesses and how to counter opposing attacks…

Making Sense of the E3 Aftermath

Making Sense of the E3 Aftermath

June 29, 2015 | by Nathan Anton

So it’s been over a week or two since E3. We saw some brilliant games this year like The Division and Star Wars Battlefront, and even some surprises like the announcement of Dark Souls 3 and the Final Fantasy 7 remake. There were a lot of games to pique one’s interest, but which ones have stuck with you?…

Can Until Dawn Finally Unite Horror and Hollywood?

Can Until Dawn Finally Unite Horror and Hollywood?

June 25, 2015 | by Ryan Dean

As a long-time gaming aficionado, we probably don’t have to tell you that the joystick and the silver screen haven’t always had the best (or most profitable) relationship over the years. As ardent fans of a great number of titles, we’ve seen a lot of franchises succumb to B-Movie mediocrity in the past few decades…
