Ninten-DO what Xbox Don’t for E3 Presentations

The Nintendo presentation was a selection of leaked announcements, underwhelming reveals and video quality that almost has me believing the Switch Pro is nothing more than a retail conspiracy theory. So why the hell are people talking about this show so much? For every exciting moment in Nintendo’s E3 presentation, there was an opportunity to sit through the Monster Hunter Stories trailer again, or a Game & Watch toy for the 35th anniversary of ...

Xbox Gave a Solid Show But It Needed To Be More

Xbox delivered. Tonight’s E3 conference gave a look at a Microsoft that’s all-in on gaming. Great first party titles, big third party support and a mountain of Game Pass games. Subscribers are going to have a great six months, there’s no arguing with that.

Final Fantasy VII Remake – Intermission Review

It’s been a 24-year wait, but Final Fantasy VII’s new piece of story DLC – Intermission – shows us exactly what Yuffie was up to before she joined our party. God, 1997 suddenly feels a long, long time ago. Of course, it looks a bit better than it would have done 24 years ago – it’s probably one of the standout titles on PS5 today. It also continues one of my favourite things about Final Fantasy VII Remake – the…

Microsoft Will Impress at E3 – Just Ignore the Acquisition Hype

There’s a lot of problems with the way Microsoft are seen in by parts of the gaming community – and the acquisition hype is becoming part of that. See how gleefully “Craig” was shared after the Halo reveal as proof of that. I’ve never seen a quarter second image shared so widely, even though it would be easy to do for just about any game you care to name. There’s another issue forming though. It’s become increasingly ...
