Metroidvania Fans Have Been Gifted ENDER MAGNOLIA: Bloom in The Mist, and We Couldn’t Be Happier

February 14 was only a week ago, and Hollow Knight fans around the world united in disappointment when there was no news in sight of¬†Silksong. When Nintendo announced their Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase, I had very little faith in even seeing the slightest news on our beloved game. However, while we didn’t receive any news of Silksong, don’t put on your clown noses just yet,¬† Metroidvania fans were given a wonderful surprise, a long awaited sequel to the most…

The Shifting Nature of Exclusivity

Exclusivity is changing. When I was a kid, I desperately wanted a PlayStation to play Tomb Raider. I drew pictures, I read magazines. I had a Sega Saturn, and could’ve played it perfectly well there. But six-year-old me didn’t know that, and nothing I saw convinced me otherwise. I had a PlayStation that Christmas. A bit after that we went into a little game shop in Birmingham – up near where Currys and Pizza Hut is now, if memory serves.…

Xbox Podcast Was Fair and Focussed – But It Was Too Late

Four Xbox will come to PlayStation, Game Pass will continue getting day one releases and the next Xbox will be the “biggest generational leap yet”. Those were all announcements at the Xbox business update podcast, and it was fair and well-explained. And while they stopped short of saying which four Xbox games would be jumping ship – pun intended – they also refused to rule out future releases. This is testing the waters. It’s still a risk that they’ve not…

Castles of Burgundy Special Edition Was Done Right

I'm firmly in the camp that not all good and classic board games need to have a Special Edition. Far too often we see overproduce special edition games that, while look pretty, are prohibitably expensive and don't really have universal appeal to longtime fans and new players alike. Think, for example, of the 3D Settlers of Catan releases. Beautiful, yes! Practical? Not at all. Accessible to the wider gaming audience? Nope. Castles of Burgundy hits very differently, however, making a few really good improvements to the game table presentation, while also being ...

Xbox’s Future Rests On a Thursday Evening Podcast

As odd as it might seem, we’ll learn about the future of Xbox through a podcast on Thursday evening. That’s how these things are done now. Gone are the days of corporate press releases and obviously carefully edited talking head videos, replaced with a less obviously stage managed video roundtable. And this isn’t a bad thing. It means we’re going to get the words directly from the horse’s mouth. And those words had better be near perfect. For those not…

Harmonies Coming from Studio Libellud via Asmodee

"Harmonies is not just any game. Yes, you will draw tiles and compete with your opponents to create the best combinations... But the experience goes much further. Because Harmonies is a real ode to nature, to the balance between fauna and flora. It doesn't play on rivalry between species and essence, predation, or the will to power but on the necessity of harmony among all elements of an ecosystem."
