Another limited edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller design puts me one pad closer to having the ultimate 4 player party, free of friends complaining that the Joy Cons feel too small in their gigantic hands. You see, I do care! Continue reading

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Collector’s Edition Unboxing

A new Xenoblade has arrived on the Nintendo Switch just in time for Christmas, and look at the size of that box! As far as Nintendo collector’s editions go, this one is a monster, and all I can think is where I’m going to store it. Maybe on the side to admire, maybe under the bed when anyone comes over… I guess that solves that conundrum. With that out the way I can safely say ‘I’m really feeling this unboxing!’ Continue reading

The Champions amiibo Set – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Collection

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has seen a steady trickle of new content coming out for it throughout 2017, be it digital or plastic. I’ve yet to fully immerse myself in such a world, but here I am with the latest amiibo range. I don’t know these people! Continue reading

Here we are, it’s the Metal Slug everyone who knows Metal Slug knows, and also the Metal Slug everyone who doesn’t know Metal Slug knows (say that fast).

It’s as they say, three really is the magic number.  Continue reading

Metal Slug X is an example of what game companies had to do before online patches were a thing. When going over Metal Slug 2, which you can read about here, I found the game to be a chuggy sluggy mess, grinding to a halt whenever the player dared to breathe. X is the marker pen crossing out such issues, and adding zombie dogs as it does so. I guess sometimes you have to give just a little bit more when saying sorry.  Continue reading

ACA NeoGeo: The King Of Fighters ’95

When arcade gaming was more than just a small corner tucked away in a Blackpool Coin Pusher Amusements Centre, you had to be the freshest slice of coin sucking entertainment to ensure survival. The King Of Fighters achieved this through yearly updates, so unless the arcade proprietor was a real stingy kind of guy, kids would be able to spend all their lunch money without the feeling that things are getting a little bit ancient. And so, The King Of Fighters ’95 was the first update of many, showing that yearly updates had some merit for the industry. Not that I ever actually saw a King Of Fighters arcade cabinet in the UK…
