FIFA 22 Review

FIFA 22 feels a lot more realistic than its predecessors; the game feels smoother to play, but still had some of the hiccups from previous games that the developers still have not ironed out.

FIFA 22 Comes with Balanced, Slower Play

FIFA 21 has been characterized by many as a goal fest, where trick mastery meant filling the net, and solid positional play meant...well, sometimes never being rewarded for playing soccer the way it's done in the pros. But with a few gameplay updates to FIFA 22, goal fest is over, and a more balanced experience is shinning through, one that emphasizes positional play and crisp, accurate passing, as opposed to flipping balls over people's heads, nutmegging them, ...

Does Kirby Spell Doom for Donkey Kong?

During last night's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo showed off their brand new upcoming Kirby title called Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which appears to be using a similar engine to the one used to create Mario Odyssey. And from the footage, the game looks absolutely incredible, with a variety of worlds to explore, characters and enemies to interact with, and so much more! But does this announcement kill the rumored 3D Donkey Kong title folks have been batting about ...

Staxel a Good Mashup on Nintendo Switch?

What can we say about Staxel. It seems to want to be Minecraft, but it isn't Minecraft. And it seems it wants to be Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley, but it isn't Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley. So what is it? It's a mashup of some of my favourite genres - building and farming - that has me more excited than I've been in recent memory for an indie title! While there are hiccups along the way, there is so much that keeps me going!

Sphero Bolt Rolling Robot Review

A few months ago, my wife and I purchased the Sphero Mini kit for our kids to stimulate their brains during the summer months. And it was a pretty big hit! The kids enjoyed controlling the robot like a remote control car with my cell phone, playing a few games on the Sphero play application. Logan took it a step farther, and began dabbling in the Sphero EDU application, which allows kids (or adults really!) to program the robot to do specific things. With the ...

Tales of Arise Review (Xbox)

I've always enjoyed the Tales franchise, with Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Vesperia being two of my favourites in the series. Tales of Arise has quietly slotted itself in between those two games in my top 3 favourite Tales titles of all time! Tales of Arise takes a bit more modern of an approach to the franchise, which was a welcomed edition. But it is the characters and story that shines brightest here.

WRC 10 Review (Xbox)

There’s little more thrilling in a rally game than coming up the crest of a hill near the end of a stage, knowing that you’ve got to hit the last few turns perfectly in order to win the event. At their best, rally games give the player the white-knuckled thrill of driving fast through unfamiliar terrain, trying to get the best time.

FIFA 22 Tutorial is Outstanding

When a tutorial is required, either for new players or because a new concept has been introduce into a game, so often companies use the most boring way to show off the new mechanic, or teach the controls. EA Sports has tried to do away with that type of crap, and instead have created a fantastic short story experience that walks players through the basics of running, passing, shooting and more, all set on the streets of Paris, and in the famous stadium of PSG!
