Camille and Richard have both been digging Trine 2 on PlayStation 3 and Trine 2: Director’s Cut on Wii U. Check our their impressions of the game below.
Platform: Wii UAlso On: PC, OSX, Linux Developer/Publisher: Tomorrow Corporation Rating: T (ESRB) / 12 (PEGI) Indie developers really have taken a liking to the Wii U and this included a few chaps who had previously made a game called World Of Goo. They decided it would be an ample time to bring their next project Little Inferno to the [...]
Metroid Prime was released in the US in November 2002, and in Japan and Europe shortly after. That makes it the 10th anniversary of the game. Ten years, and it has hardly aged at all.
Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: NinendoRating: E (ESRB) / 12 (PEGI) With the launch of the Wii U just around the corner in the UK and Europe I decided to finally finish playing some of my 3DS games. A game I did not really get featured the coin-addicted Mario in New Super Mario Bros 2. I am a rather huge [...]
Remakes, reboots, revamps and HD collections. It seems every game from yester-year is being dragged into the current gen for a new audience, for the experience, of course and in no way just to be a quick cash-in on older titles. Remakes are not a new thing however. Films are always being remade. Some need it – for example a lot of John Carpenter films are good ideas but not that well made, and the remakes usually end up being quite good. And the same can be said about the PSOne game.
Tennis is one of the oldest formats of video game, Pong was a simple game, but its premise is based on tennis. Tennis translates well to games due to its simplicity, and its this reason that many older tennis games are far more accessible and fun, than newer tennis games.
Smash TV was originally an arcade game, whose game mechanics borrowed heavily from another arcade game, Robotron 2084. Using twin sticks to simultaneously move and shoot, players were thrust into a future world game show, not to dissimilar to Schwarzeneggers Running Man movie, or The Hunger Games if you are younger than me…
The Avengers movie is nearly here. Years of planning ahead, sowing the seeds and developing characters in movies like Iron Man and Thor, we’ll soon find out if it was all worth it. At the moment, there is little to no word on whether any official game tie-in is on the cards for the future, but based on this game from 1993, the Avengers may not be welcomed back to the gaming world…
I’ve recently re-acquired a Nintendo DS, under the thin excuse of it being for my daughter. Its been a while since I had my original brick like silver DS which I adopted on day one. But as with the Wii, its appeal quickly withered and ended up being sold off. Since then, there have been a few games I’ve had my eye on and this was one of those that was near the top of the list…
Seeing the new trailer for Ridley Scotts Alien prequel Prometheus, has really given me the ‘bug’ for that world again. Aliens is one of my favourite films of all time, and any game linked to the xenomorphs, immediately has my attention.
