Some things are standardised for a reason… because they work!

Bravo, Jim Sterling… I really couldn’t have said it better myself. Deluded Nintendo fan-boys need to pay attention to what you’re saying. And this video really does need to be shoved down Nintendo’s throats for the cancerous inventions they are inflicting on the marketplace, as well as fan-boys who continue to delude themselves into believing that Nintendo’s gimmick-laden approach towards hardware design (including the Gamepad) is justified. “New” does not always mean “better” and Nintendo would do well to heed this. Although considering that the NX is gearing up to be a “brand-new concept“, I very much doubt that the company is paying attention to what Jim Sterling has...

Splatoon (Wii U) is only £19.19

In my opinion, Splatoon is an over-rated third person multiplayer game that only gets notable attention from fan-boys due to it being developed by Nintendo. And to be honest, if the box didn’t state ‘Nintendo’ on the front cover, then the game wouldn’t have done nearly as well as it has thus far. Still, it seems churlish to not congratulate Nintendo on their success, even if my opinion doesn’t necessarily correlate with those who are far bigger fans of the title. Indeed, a number of people on Neogaf consider Splatoon to be one of the defining games on Wii U (which in all honesty speaks more about the sorry...

Trackmania Turbo (PS4 / XBox One) is well worth the price at only £16.99

Due to the sheer size of their ever increasingly large libraries, one of the major factors as to why I like Microsoft’s and Sony’s foray into the console arena is that both companies understand the importance of giving consumers a huge variety of choice. And whilst some would argue that the sheer wealth of software creations at consumers fingertips is diminishing the perceived value of games and making them more disposable, at the same time however, this increased competition also leads to certain games becoming ridiculously cheap and enabling gamers to pick them up for not much money. And so it’s the case with Trackmania Turbo – a really...

Oddworld: New N’ Tasty (PS4 / Vita) is extremely rare and on sale today for $29.99

I remember tweeting Shahid Ahmad (ex-SCEE) about a year ago with regards to seeing as to whether Sony would consider doing limited edition print runs of highly sought after indie games – like what Vblank achieved with Retro City Rampage. Even though Sony never considered my proposal at the time, it’s comforting to know that Limited Run Games very much had the same idea, and have since embarked on releasing limited edition print runs of PS4 and Vita games. @SuperMeatBoy @shahidkamal would be good to do a ltd physical release of Super Meat Boy (Vita) – like 5000 copies or something… — PRANKSTER101 (@prankster101com) June 12, 2015 @shahidkamal it...
