Jet Set Radio To Return?

If there was an icon of the early noughties, Jet Set Radio seems to be a contender. It had the music, the feel, the unique look and gameplay. SEGA had a winning formula. And then they just stopped. Until now. The original game was popular enough, and the sequel on Xbox seems to have a decent following as well. But, like Shenmue, it just kind of dropped off the planet. Which is a shame, because unique colourful games were sorely…

The Walking Dead – Ten Years On

It was ten years ago that the first series of Telltale’s The Walking Dead changed how we think about those kinds of video games. And maybe all video games. Two seasons into the TV series, fans found a new way of looking at the fictional Walker-fied universe – but it didn’t stop there. Thanks to being available on every single device in existence, as well as the episodic format, it quickly spread to a more casual audience. It wasn’t the…

Batman Bundle is a Humble Triumph

Sometimes it feels like the days of extreme PC discounts is long gone – and then you see the new Batman Humble Bundle and the memories all come flooding back. For less than £8 – somewhere around $10 – you can have almost every great Batman game made in the last 15 years. And it’s well worth every penny. The bundle includes Arkham Asylum, City and Knight, as well as the often forgotten (officially) Origins. You’ll also get three Lego…

Returning to the original God of War is Tough

God of War is a hallowed series, there’s no doubt about it. Spoken about in hushed tones, remembered fondly and regularly as the definition of a PlayStation classic. And rightly so. But those original games haven’t aged particularly well, and are made worse for how hard they are to play decently. That’s not to say the effort isn’t worth it. If you’re happy to laugh at a few cheesy mini-games or poorly put together cutscenes, you’ll have a great time.…

More Thoughts From Me #265: Closing Down the (Digital) Shop

This week we got rumors that the PS3/PSP/Vita digital stores will be shutting down this year. Usually I do not report or even talk about rumors. That said, the closing of those shops will happen sooner or later! What do I think of digital stores closing? Let’s dig into it. Its always tough when digital store fronts close down. We all know why this happens: digital stores take up server space for companies. They cost money to keep up and…

So without further ado, here are my top 5 youtube video game channels! Oh and if you don’t want to read it, there’s a youtube video with me reading all this (though you’ll miss the youtube links if you don’t read too. heh). Just a note that everyone should include!

Metal Gear Solid 4 is (mostly) a masterpiece – so why is it so hard to play?

Metal Gear Solid 4 is about the most next-gen game you can imagine. Your suit automatically changes textures to match its backgrounds. There are epic gunfights that you can use to blend into the background, or you can choose to change the ebb of battle to gain allies. That’s before we even mention that epic moustache, still unsurpassed in games or cinema. It’s next-gen in every way you can name, except that it’s 12 years old. Created by Konami, regarded…

On the Road to Delos Crossing: The Evolution of Adventure Games

It wasn’t that long ago that adventure games meant solving obscure puzzles and impossible save states. The genre has changed immeasurably over the last 30 years, but that doesn’t mean the key ingredients aren’t still there. With the release of Tell Me Why, we’re looking back at the biggest titles, and at why we still love adventure all these years later. Tell Me Why takes the genre to new heights, building a realistic world with fascinating characters. The adventure today…

Cars 3: Driven to Win Review in Progress Part 1

It only took a couple minutes for me to fall in love with Cars 3: Driven to Win, and although I can easily say it's no Mario Kart - and really, what cartoon racing game really is - I think it's an equally good alternative for those who perhaps prefer Cars over Mario, or those who do not own a Nintendo Switch. We are looking at the game on both of Nintendo's current platforms for this review: the Nintendo Switch, and the Nintendo Wii U!
