Danger: NFTs – DLC Has Levelled Up

There’s a very important topic of conversation that is getting buried behind Digital Foundry videos, arguments about whose console loads the fastest and hype for games that probably don’t exist. NFTs are confusing, mysterious and coming to the game industry at a rate of knots. It’s time to be very afraid. Why should you be worried? Imagine the early days of DLC – horse armour and the like – and then imagine it was 100 times more exploitative. Imagine that…

Wrapping Animal Crossing DLC in NSO is Brilliant for Consumers

One of the many benefits of paying for something like Xbox Game Pass is that it allows me to try some first party games that normally I would not have shelled money our for. I actually wrote about this a while ago when it came to Flight Simulator, a game that I wanted to try, ultimately hated, and glad I didn't spend full retail price on. And once again, DLC wrapped into a service has saved me money. And this time, I'm shocked to say it's Animal Crossing.

Smash Bros. Ultimate Re-Review – A Celebration

It’s been a couple of weeks since Sora became the last DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and I’ve been playing it a lot. Man, what a wonderful game. Ultimate is about right. It brings together almost everything to love about the franchise. But more than that, it has become a real celebration of everything that makes Nintendo and gaming as a whole special. After multiple DLC characters and a couple of years to settle into itself, I thought…

Animal Crossing New Horizons Update 2.0 and Happy Home Paradise First Thoughts

The Animal Crossing New Horizons 2.0 update came out on Wednesday night, surprising everyone. And then the Happy Home Paradise DLC came out on Friday. Now that they both are here and I’ve played them some, here are my first thoughts on these new additions to the game. Back when Animal Crossing New Horizons came out, I gave the game a 10 out of 10. I was wrong. The game was really good and I was (still am) a major…

The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf is Fun, Albeit Rough on Nintendo Switch

The age old debate of whether or not good gameplay can offset a poor looking game is likely to continue for folks who are looking to pick up The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf on Nintendo Switch. To be clear, the graphical issues I encountered while playing the game do not seem to be present on the Xbox and PlayStation versions of the game, as friends have told me. But on the Switch, the game just doesn't look great and crisp, but I enjoyed it none-the-less. Why? Let's check it out.

The Good Life – Interesting Take on Narrative Adventures

When I rolled the credits on The Good Life, I wasn't exactly sure what to think. Was it good? I wasn't sure. Was it bad? Not really. Was it interesting? Heck yes, and ultimately I think that turns the tables and makes what might normally just be an OK game into something much more enjoyable. Confused yet? Good - let's talk.

The GTA Trilogy Remaster is Just Wrong – And I Want It

Re-releasing Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City and San Andreas with only a handful of improvements is ridiculous. It’s lazy. It’s outrageous. But the GTA Trilogy Remaster is something I’m totally down for. Here’s the problem: these three games are incredibly good. More than that, they ooze nostalgia. To play them with improved controls and graphics will restore them back to the level I thought they were back in the early noughties. Believe me, I know that releasing the GTA…
