Miitopia review: Oh mii oh my

Reviewed on 3DS, copy supplied by Nintendo.  Nintendo’s Miis have been popping up all over their consoles for over a decade now, appearing as stars in games such as Tomodachi Life, Miitomo, the 3DS Streetpass games and Wii Sports. I feel like the Miis themselves work best as elements of a game rather than being the main focus, but here we are with Miitopia. Miitopia is a turn-based RPG with life s...[Read More]

Bye-Bye BoxBoy! review: He’s a box, my boy’s a box!

Played on Nintendo 3DS, copy supplied by publisher. Bye-Bye BoxBoy! is the third and final installment in the BoxBoy puzzle platforming series, which are downloadable titles on the Nintendo 3DS. Created by Kirby developers Hal Laboratory, the series centres on a BoxBoy named Qbby (pronounced “Cubey”) creating duplicates of his box body to traverse a series of puzzles to reach the end of 100+ stage...[Read More]

Pokémon Sun & Moon review: Like night & day compared to the others

Reviewed on: 3DS. Copy supplied by publisher. A wise man once said “All you need to make a movie is a gun and a girl”. He also said he didn’t want a North American visa because it would take too long to fly there (although he eventually did). The man in question is the great film-maker Jean-Luc Godard but curiously I find his view to be a little short sighted. To be fair, he said this roughly arou...[Read More]

Missingo is totally in Pokémon Red and Blue on 3DS

  I can remember clearly when news hit the playground back in the late 90s that a mysterious Pokémon could be found in Red and Blue. This holy grail of confusion could only be found under special circumstances, and the end result was more frightening than it was enjoyable. I am of course talking about Missingo, which you probably already knew unless you somehow completely avoided reading the ...[Read More]

The Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow trailer is a thing of beauty

  I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I say that Pokémon Blue on Game Boy was the first game I played properly. I spent most of 1999 collecting ’em all and forcing my little monster buddies to fight to the point they fainted. The news that Pokémon, Red Version, Blue Version and Yellow Version will be on the Nintendo eShop for 3DS in a weeks time blew my socks off… and t...[Read More]

Xmas ideas for your gaming family/friends

  So, that whole Christmas thing is next week. Came up quickly didn’t it? While I’d like to think we’d all be super organised and gotten all our gifts wrapped and ready to go so we can just sit back and enjoy the “holiday season”, the introduction of late trading hours (sometimes never even closing) in the lead up to Christmas suggests otherwise. But which came f...[Read More]
