A load of new characters are coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ, with two available January 31st!

Dragon Ball FighterZ has been somewhat of a phenomenon in the fighting game scene. It’s difficult for a fighter to break into the eSports level these days, but FighterZ has gone against the odds and carved out its own comfy spot alongside some of the greats.

And deservedly so! I played it when it came to Switch last year, and it is a hell of a time. Super solid mechanics, with absurdly brilliant graphics. Its like playing the anime! Continue reading A load of new characters are coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ, with two available January 31st!

Metroid Prime 4 is being rebooted, restarting development from the beginning

Well, of all the stories I could have anticipated to be writing today, this, most certainly, was not one of them.

Nintendo has released a development update video, issuing a formal apology to all their fans, stating that development on Prime 4 was not going in a direction they were fond of.
Shinya Takahashi, who is in charge of development at Nintendo seemed genuinely sorry, and stated that it was a pained decision, one they deliberated on for a long time but ultimately came to the decision that it had to be restarted.

Lego Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit can no longer be bought digitally

I wouldn’t normally report on something like this, but I find this to be a particularly strange situation given the stature of these games.
No, its not like “The last of us” is no longer available to buy or anything, but these were competent games. Aimed primarily at a younger audience, sure, but they’re well made, and kids go mad for them. Continue reading Lego Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit can no longer be bought digitally

Hopes and predictions for Pokemon 2019

So… We’ve battled through the storm that was the year of “Wait that’s not a mainline game! Or is it? What is that.” and come out the other side stronger, albeit slightly battered.

Joking aside, Pokemon Let’s Go was actually a fun game, and much better designed than a lot of us expected.
As for whether that makes it a mainline game or not, I… I honestly still don’t know. Like, does anyone really know? I know Gamefreak says it is one, but is that just a marketing gimmick or… Okay we’re getting sidetracked here. Continue reading Hopes and predictions for Pokemon 2019

A MOBA on Switch? A MOBA on Switch. Colour me excited.
I was a huge League of Legends fan back in the day, but had to separate myself from the game due to it’s infamous fan-base. It can be a very toxic environment.
I’ll often miss it and wish I could play a game or two, but I regret it every time I go back!
Enter Arena of Valor, and it’s announcement to bring the game to Switch.
