Well the rumour mill is in full flow today after Kotaku UK reported that Capcom are planning on releasing another HD remaster of cult classic Okami on PS4, PC and Xbox One this Christmas. Continue reading
Last year we saw the release of the NES mini; a plug and play console that contained 30 games that were perfectly emulated and had that Nintendo ‘magic’; that je ne c’est quoi that make people lose their minds and “have” to own it.
What happened will go down in legend, like the Buzz Lightyear farce of ’93, Nintendo completely underestimated demand and the thing sold out as it touched down on shop floors leading to extreme stock shortages. It caused out-roar on the internet as people struggled to secure their console and those who were interested in it (including me) could never hope to acquire one without giving in the outrageous prices scalpers were asking.

Here it is folks, my game picks from E3 2017! Prepare to be excited and prepare to be disappointed because I know for a fact there’ll be people in both camps!
I can’t please you all, and to be honest – I’m not even going to try!
This list is based entirely off my own personal taste; so, if you want to flame them, please do it in the comments or @me on twitter! I will try to better justify my choices if you can give me a succinct reason why you disagree with them being on my list!

The best thing about reviewing games is that sometimes you get given a game that you’ve never heard of, in a genre you don’t particularly enjoy, and it turns out to be a damned good experience.
*Spoiler Alert* Demetrios is one such game. Continue reading
Over a year ago I wrote about how my backlog was getting out of control; and since then I’ve seen my backlog of games do nothing but grow longer and longer.
Even when I have the best intentions of “getting stuck into this” and “I’ll definitely play that this week” it continues to taunt me as it my steam library stretches beyond the reaches of my monitors.
I wish this was merely the case on PC but the sad fact is that it has spread to every console I own too! My PS4 HDD is not only stuffed full of games, but there are countless others who have been relegated to “my library”. I have 3 16GB 3DS SD cards heaving with games I’ve bought and never played, my VITA has become a graveyard for abandoned playthroughs. Continue reading
