Hands-On: Coming Soon To 3DS

Jul 23, 2014

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Adam: My experience with Monster Hunter is very limited, so I can’t speak on any major changes made. I was impressed with the methodical gameplay though, it seems like it could really reward planning in the full game as each piece of equipment offers such varied strategy and execution. For example, we were put up against a large...

Hands-On: Sonic Boom

Jul 14, 2014

Adam: I was quite looking forward to Sonic Boom since its team is composed of people behind one of my favourite 3D platformers, Jak & Daxter.

E3 2014 best impressions

Jul 9, 2014

Last year’s E3 was all about the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft, but thankfully this year the focus was purely on the games.

Hands-On: Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS (guest starring Amiibos hands-off)

Jul 1, 2014

Adam: As someone who never played the Smash Bros. games competitively because I’m awful at them, Nintendo weren’t really showing us the trophies and unlocks that are important to me. The game doesn’t seem to have undergone many changes from Melee aside from roster additions; but the game controlled perfectly on  both systems. Visually, it’s...
