E3 2021: My Most Anticipated List!

So we’ve just had E3 after a year break due to the ongoing global pandemic, and it’s been an interesting one. One can argue it was thin on the ground for big releases and other news, though another can argue that might be due to the ongoing crisis. Despite all...

New Pokemon Snap Review

New Pokemon Snap Review

I struggle to think of a franchise as dominant as Pokémon. For 20 years, these cute monsters have continued to take the world by storm. Game after game, Anime series, expensive merchandise, the Pokemon cafe in Toyko (which I hope to visit at some point in my life), and so...

Cyberpunk 2077 Review Part 1: Introduction

Expectation is a powerful word. The jury is still out on Cyberpunk 2077’s notorious release. It’s certainly grabbed the world’s attention.

Indie Corner: Episode 1

I’m back, starting a new series, covering indie games!
