After having watched my partner, Clarice, play through around half of Xenoblade Chronicles and around 75% of Xenoblade Chronicles X, I’ve built up a rather fond respect for the two titles; a larger, somewhat more isolated part of the Xenosaga and Xenogears franchises respectively, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 aims to provide an extremely loose sequel to […]

Today during the Mega Man 30th Anniversary Livestream, Capcom revealed Mega Man 11, the next evolution in the long-running 32 million unit-selling action platformer series. Led by a talented, veteran development team at Capcom, the new game features tight side-scrolling action gameplay the series is known for while completely revolutionizing the experience for modern consoles.
Earlier this month I was introduced to a part of Atlus that, surprisingly, I’d never really even heard much of before – Given that this IS Atlus, and that unsung masterpieces are their sort of foray, I decided to go into Etrian Odyssey V entirely blind. No walkthroughs, no help, no jargon-busting wiki guides… Just a brand […]
Normally we here at Respawning don’t like to dwell much on rumour, however with a recent claim from Twitter user Marcus Sellars that Bandai Namco is, on December 15th, to announce 5 brand new, previously unannounced titles alongside a big Nintendo presence, we just couldn’t pass it up!
The moment I heard Doom was being ported to the Nintendo switch, I was immediately excited, not just at the fact that the Nintendo Switch is becoming a jack of all trades console, but that the impossible will be possible…! Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you my review of one of the most unlikely and […]
Super Mario Odyssey is a love letter to the past. Growing up I didn’t care for the 2D Mario games too much. Sure I played Super Mario Colour on the Gameboy, but I didn’t get invested.

I don’t really know where to start with this but here goes – Farming Simulator is probably one of the most boring games I’ve played. I know that sounds weird and kind of obvious since it’s quite literally a game based on real life farming but god DAMN I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to […]
Investing into a new console is never an easy task, you never know how much support it’s going to get. As well as that you’ve got the worry that there won’t be any games for a good year or so. All this can be applied to the Nintendo Switch, which is a console Josef bought […]
To me, Pokemon Blue is the game to beat and it always will be. Ask any gamer in our generation (20s-30s) and everyone has played one of the Pokemon games, and for a lot of us it’s the game that got us into gaming (well it is for me anyway). You’ll also meet a lot […]
I decided to miss FIFA 17 and whilst playing FIFA 18 all I can think is WHYY??! It may because I barely played the last FIFA but this game plays and looks so good and there are many little changes which make this game thoroughly enjoyable. Deep down it’s still the same old FIFA but […]
Earlier teased at Nintendo’s E3 booth back in 2016, Shin Megami Tensei V has finally been announced, and is to be exclusively releasing on the Nintendo Switch upon release. The recent trailer by Atlus displayed a boy in flower-adorned attire walking down a busy Japanese travel hallway alongside a schoolgirl, before switching to an underground […]
