    Creative, Imaginative and Fun

    Puppeteer was a new IP from Sony's Japan studio. It's a shame as Sony did advertise it outside of gaming sites and they also, for some reason decided to release this the same month as GTAV. Seriously why is it, the las... Read Full Review

    If you think JRPGs are dead, then you haven't played this..

    I have an odd relationship with RPGs. Namely I have to be in the mood to play one and it really has to catch my attention. Ni No Kuni was one such game mainly because it was made with the help of Studio Ghibili who has... Read Full Review

    The other game where Link travels between time periods.

    Oracle of Ages was a GBA game released alongside Oracle of Seasons which I already reviewed and both games are very similar in terms of gameplay and graphics so this review might sound a bit redundant. Link travels to... Read Full Review

    An often overlooked adventure for Link

    Oracle of Seasons is one of two GBC color Zelda games that came out late in the Gameboy's life and was somewhat eclipsed by Pokémon at the time which is a shame because this and it's Ages counterpart are examples of old ... Read Full Review

    Link's first handheld outing is worth a look.

    Despite being a Zelda fan, somehow I missed Link's Awakening the first time around. Probably because I was a stupid child who owned a Sega Game Gear instead of a Game Boy so it eluded me for years. Thankfully the 3DS ... Read Full Review
