    It’s only weeks to go until the Nintendo Switch is released and whilst I am excited about a brand new Legend of Zelda game to sink my teeth into, other features have also captured my imagination. Most of all the joy controllers. With the JoyCon’s new vibration system in...
  • For Honor Beta Impressions

  • What Dark Souls Gets Right About Medieval Combat

    “Oh Good! Someone else to bang on about how great bloody Dark Souls is!” I hear you cry. That’s fair. There can’t be much left that Dark Souls hasn’t been praised for, and its combat alone has certainly garnered a fair amount of acclaim. But here I am, hoping...
