Is the Nintendo Switch Set to Curb the Rising Mobile Gaming Trend?

Software companies have recognised this flourishing sector, and 44% of game developers created an offering for the mobile platform in 2016. When compared to the 5% that made games for... read more

What Can Pokemon Go Learn from Other Apps?

What Can Pokemon Go Learn from Other Apps?

While many Pokemon Go players were expecting Niantic to roll out the entire catalogue of Gen II Pokemon this month, adding the likes of Chikorita, Spinarak, and Mareep, the reality was a little more disappointing. The company has only added six baby critters (and a Santa hat for Pikachu) and hidden them inside rare eggs that require the player to walk between 2km and 10km before they hatch. The new arrivals... read more

6 Features we'd Like to See in Pokemon Go

6 Features we'd Like to See in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go took the gaming industry and the world by storm when it was released in July this year, quickly overtaking other popular smartphone apps like Tinder, Twitter and Instagram. However, while aspects of the game have improved massively in the months it has been available, with servers lagging first less than when it first debuted, otherwise the game has remained much the same. With the number of players... read more

Does Pokemon GO Mean a New Era of Openness for Nintendo?

Does Pokemon GO Mean a New Era of Openness for Nintendo?

Pokemon GO is, without a doubt, the greatest gaming sensation since the launch of the first iPhone model in 2008. Aside from the fact that it made people actually leave home to play, it could have a much greater impact on the future of Nintendo. Given that Nintendo's most successful game is not one restricted to its own consoles, could signal a change in policies - the Japanese gaming giant might focus a bit more on... read more

The Serious Problem Brewing for Pokemon GO!

The Serious Problem Brewing for Pokemon GO!

It's been just a few days with Pokemon GO and already the game is a smash hit. Whilst most of the conversation around this game is either focusing on the technical hiccups or that one crazy Australian police station, there is a logistical problem that is starting to brew in the augmented reality title. The way the game works is simple. Pokemon spawn, you catch them, you get candy and experience points to level... read more

Watch Dogs review

A Series of Tubes

What can be said about Ubisoft's behemoth release that hasn't already passed off the pens of every critic who covers this storied medium? After all, this was to be harbinger of a new generation's worth of fresh thinking, a hurried farewell to the troubles that plagued major releases of generations past. And... read more

Sexy Genie Pirate Romp, Metroid-Vania Style

I suppose that got your attention, did it not? Don't get angry though, because that's exactly what this game is. But in all seriousness, who is Shantae anyway, and why should anybody even care? Well, Shantae is a sadly underrated character who stars in a sadly underrated game series. Shantae And The... read more

Runny Egg review

Runny Egg review

A scrambled experience

Runny Egg is a simple 2D momentum-based platformer, kind of like the classic Sonic games. It's got a light and cutesy art style, and it's very easy to pick up and play. The first level starts out pretty strong. You've got a bright and green landscape, the music is upbeat and cheery, and our little egg friend... read more

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward review

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward review

Technically not a game. Twist: That's a good thing.

To call Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward a game is something of a misnomer. Its official branding has elected for the more pompous sounding interactive novel. This description evokes something of an inaccurate fear that the latest in the Zero Escape franchise will be cripplingly mundane. The truth of the... read more
