If you’re going into Shadow Of The Tomb Raider thinking that it’s going to break & heighten your standards to a transcendent level, you’d be sorely mistaken. But at the very least, you’ll find a much-improved and refined action adventure game that stays true to the graverobbing and spelunking spirit from the past two Tomb Raider games.
In a perfect world, I would be writing a glowing review about the new Predator movie that’s out this week. But we’re in this timeline, and the actual film is a half-assed attempt at capturing the nostalgia and action beats of the first two Predator films.
Happy 35th anniversary, Mario!
The Super Mario titles from Nintendo are arguably the most influential and iconic games around. Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably lying through their teeth.
Without the mind of Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto at the helm of these mothership games, there wouldn’t be a Nintendo at all in the late 80s and the 90s. In fact, Nintendo and Mario were the sole saviours of the video game industry; countless retrospectives have mentioned this, so there’s no history lesson here.
Rejoice, beat-em-up fans of 90s video games based after The Warriors! Streets of Rage is making a comeback with a fourth instalment (fifth if we count the equally-awesome Streets of Rage Remake fan game). It’s going to be created by DotEmu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games (of Streets of Fury fame).
It’s been a while since we’ve done video games, eh?
Nintendo recently sold over 20 million units of the Switch; congratulations! That’s definitely a far cry from the sales numbers of the Wii U, which is probably the worst-selling console next to the Virtual Boy.
It’s our 2 Year Anniversary! Welcome to the episode where we talk about literally whatever we want! The usual hijinks ensue as EccentricTom bangs on about the World Cup and his support for both England and Belgium. Mr Toffee harps on about the steam sale and the one game he bought and liked. And in an unusually personal section where Shafique takes the opportunity to break character and talk about the recent passing of his father. And coming to terms with his mortality.
The Hateful 8? Hardly.
