    Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    It's taken years of craft and - likely - a hell of a lot of money, but Ni No Kuni is a wonderful, wondrous experience and will keep you captivated and enchanted for dozens of hours. Ni No Kuni reminds you just why you fell in love with the JRPG. I mean, it... more

    Gone Home Review

    Gone Home

    Gone Home nails the alienating sensation of feeling lost in a place that should be your home, and perfectly emulates the mild fear that comes with exploring a big dark house. When you leave home for the first time it feels strange, but coming home... more

    Bayonetta 2 Review

    Bayonetta 2

    Bayonetta 2 is a system seller. It's a Nintendo-published game that is rarely seen, and a game that will legitimately make non-Wii U owners jealous. I don't think I enjoy Bayonetta, and its sequel, for the reasons gaming's... more

    Ori and the Blind Forest

    The extreme highs carry Ori and the Blind Forest through to greatness if not quite flawlessness. Rarely is a game able to be so devilish in its gameplay yet so touching in its story. My heart was pounding like I'd just ran to catch the last bus home. A... more

    Axiom Verge

    Whereas many modern takes on classic retro genres fall foul of style over substance, this has been built with such skill that it doesn't need to rely on our annoying fondness of the past to impress. Confession time: I've never played a 2D Metroid game. I've only even played... more

    Hypnospace Outlaw is a perfect recreation of what the internet once was, and in some ways still is: a glorious mess of friendship and anarchy. It’s probably good we don’t have auto-playing music anymore, though. Back in the late ‘90s, the internet was a luxury for most, rather... more
