Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo. Mario Tennis Aces brings Mario and gang to the Switch for some sports action, and in doing so highlights the strengths of the Switch for casual gaming.

Bayonetta 1 & 2 for Nintendo Switch review: The good kind of bonkers

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon review: The game used confuse ray

Reviewed on 3DS, copy supplied by publisher.  Prior to playing I was a bit confused as to what Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon were and their relation to the original Sun and Moon. Was it a “third” game of the seventh generation of main Pokémon titles, like Yellow, Emerald, Platinum – which were enhanced versions of the main pair of games – or was it a direct sequel set on the same wo...[Read More]

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions review: A trip down GBA lane

Reviewed on: Nintendo 3DS Holy moly, Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga is 14 years old. It’s still one of the funniest video games I have ever played, and it came during a time when games with good humour were few and far between. What was great about it was its accessibility; featuring relatively simple RPG mechanics, alongside gameplay innovations such as dodging attacks in real-time is what made ...[Read More]

Super Mario Odyssey review: You can’t leave your hat on

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by publisher.  My love of the Super Mario series started with Super Mario World on the SNES. It’s one of the first games I remember playing, and everything about it has stuck with me – from the secret levels, to every note of the soundtrack – it’s so ingrained in my identity that I can’t help but smile when I think about it. ...[Read More]

You can harness the power of squid butt in Super Mario Odyssey

We need to talk about Super Mario Odyssey. Specifically we need to talk about how Mario travels around via the raw power of assholes in the game. There’s no pretty way to discuss gaping mollusk buttholes, so let’s jump right in. In the Seaside Kingdom of Super Mario Odyssey you’re tasked with the usual possessing of creatures to solve puzzles and earn Power Moons. One of the creatures at you...[Read More]

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]

Pokkén Tournament DX review: Fly like a Butterfree, sting like a Beedrill

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  Pokémon battles are usually something we experience from the view of a DS or Gameboy. They are relatively static fights in which cute animals use magic so some orphans can hoard badges, rarely do we experience the sheer ferocity of nature that is animals fighting. Well, thanks to Pokkén Tournament DX , you can now take a mobile cockfighting ...[Read More]

Metroid: Samus Returns review: Stop, drop and spider roll

Reviewed on 3DS, copy supplied by Nintendo.  Metroid: Samus Returns is yet another flagship title that has returned to its roots. After some missteps in a franchise that has a bloated history, this return to basics splendour is exactly what was needed. Taking place shortly after the very first game and just before Metroid II:The Return of Samus, the lanky mercenary Samus is hired to eradicate the ...[Read More]

Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle review: Surprisingly amazing

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Ubisoft. Mixing Nintendo’s flagship plumber with Ubisoft’s annoying mascots was a questionable choice on paper, however in execution Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is one of the best titles to hit the Switch to date, and that’s saying something. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is an engaging, charming and addictive strategic RPG, howev...[Read More]
