This Week in Gaming News: ‘Spider-Man’ Gets More Exciting, ‘No Man’s Sky’ Gets Less Terrible

Here’s a thing: my girlfriend has the best WiFi speed I’ve ever experienced. She’s not a gamer, she doesn’t have a PC and she doesn’t even watch stupid shit on her mobile phone. Sometimes, my friends, there is just no sense to this world – but at least when I […]

Final Fantasy XV shows a lot of promise in the early stages

Not so Final Fantasy – Final Fantasy XV: a Game of Two Halves

Having watched the tie-in CG movie Kingsglaive (starring Aaron Paul, Lena Headey, and Sean Bean), the accompanying anime, and played both Episode Duscae and the Platinum Demo prior to launch, I was chomping at the bit to begin my journey through the world of Eos when a shiny new copy of the game dropped through my letter box on a chilly November morning in 2016.

This continuing series will take a look back at the entry that established the 3D dungeon template, in turn altering dungeon design in ways that would dominate and define the series for nearly twenty years. In this entry, I will be examining the ninth and final dungeon, Ganon's Castle.

Bananarama in ‘Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Donkey Kong Adventure’

If there was one game on the Nintendo Switch that required some extra content, it was Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Remaining one of the most enjoyable games on the Switch, Mario + Rabbids is abundant with personality and charm, then layered with humor which encourages a harmonious experience, even when the later levels became particularly difficult. Donkey Kong Adventure had to deliver on this unique balance if it was to succeed, and without spinning on its own banana peel, exceeds all expectations.
