Games to play instead of reviewing Metal Gear Survive

Disclaimer – A review for Metal Gear Survive is in the works but it’s such hard going when you previously enjoyed Metal Gear Solid titles that I thought I’d pop a few thoughts out there for you to read. If your curious why I’m taking this stance check out my Beta experience opinion. Warioware Quick thinking, fast reactions and able to analyse and react to any situation, that’s what you need in Metal Gear but it’s also the same for WarioWare. There’s a new Wario Ware game in the works! We’re all hopeful it’s better than Mario Party: The Top … Continue reading Games to play instead of reviewing Metal Gear Survive

A list of PSVita games still worth playing because yes it’s that time of year.

It’s that time of year again! Time to dig out old consoles, classic previous games and hope to find those little gems that you just didn’t originally get around to. With the Vita still selling for around £80-90 second hand and the PlayStationTv for £50 (which can play most Vita titles) it’s still a great time to get into the system! I’m sure you’ll spot a few titles missing from this list but these are just ones I can personally wholeheartedly recommend from experience. Yes I also know the originally exclusive Gravity Rush is missing but I’d recommend you play the … Continue reading A list of PSVita games still worth playing because yes it’s that time of year.

How to deal with Dragonball FighterZ cravings

So after playing the Dragon ball FighterZ beta you’re left needing more? It’s slightly better than Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (as you can see here) but you’ve no access to play it, what now? How do you wait until Friday 26th January? I’ve personally watched all 291 episodes of DragonballZ (not all the films mind but some of them) dubbed. I’ve watched a few episodes subbed and a few GT but that’s a lot of KAMEHAMAHA. I’ve also played the games since the obscure japanese snes fighters, gba rpgs, the truely terrible PS1/Saturn games, all of the Budokai Gamecube and PS2 … Continue reading How to deal with Dragonball FighterZ cravings

Captain Obvious – Why Danganronpa is worth your time.

If you had asked me 10 years ago if I thought a visual novel on the Psp was a system seller I’d have told you to jog on. Also I would likely want to have a look at your time travelling technology! Cycle forward to many years later and my Psp collecting dust, I look up a list of “hidden gems” and find Danganronpa. Wowzers. Part visual novel, part action word game and part anime Saw adaptation. This game is dynamite. There’s a good reason it’s been ported to vita, PS4 and tablets. The story, artwork, puzzles and just everything … Continue reading Captain Obvious – Why Danganronpa is worth your time.

Captain Obvious – Why you should hate loot crate systems in video games

Originally in my eyes trading card packs were the first “loot crates”. Mysterious packets of shiny material that would guarantee a shiny special card and a ton of garbage. It was essentially lighthearted gambling and harmless collecting. Companies clearly saw it differently as a cynical way to get people to pay for card with pretty pictures on it. It feels like over the years that simply joy of trading cards has been refined into gambling for data. Gambling with even worse odds in video games as you aren’t even guaranteed the original “shiny”, the duplicates are just standard (because they … Continue reading Captain Obvious – Why you should hate loot crate systems in video games
