I really love animal crossing as a game franchise, and I have played it for far too long than I would like to admit. But there has always been one thing incredibly frustrating for me which I have to put with for to long, and it's time to speak out. The most infuriating thing about … Continue reading Animal Crossing Still Needs to Fix This!
A game where you travel to an odd remote village in the middle of nowhere in order to solve an inheritance dispute probably sounds like the most boring game imaginable, but the truth is anything but. Professor Layton and the curious village is a charming short game about a British gentleman named Hershel Layton who … Continue reading Professor Layton and the Curious Village Review
I was one of the many people who never really got to play Mario Galaxy before, and now with the new Super Mario 3D All Stars collection I have my chance! I will be reviewing the games individually, only reviewing after playing one fully to completion. As this takes time, I have only completed Mario … Continue reading Super Mario Galaxy: A Game of Two Halves
Welcome to the Ocarina of Time Majoras’ Mask continuity run! Where I (a normal person with no knowledge of speedruns or glitches) will try and beat Ocarina of Time without a magic bar and just three hearts! Full rules can be found here. But more or less we will play the game in the usual way, … Continue reading Can you Beat Ocarina of Time With No Magic and Three Heart Containers? – Forest Temple – Spirit Temple
Majora's Mask is potentially one of the coolest Zelda games. I love it's general atmosphere and all the side quests a lot. And I generally think it really has a lot of great things in it. However unfortunately today I am talking about something that I don't like about the game: The dungeons. There are … Continue reading Why The Dungeons in Majora’s Mask Suck
Welcome to the Ocarina of Time Majoras' Mask continuity run! Where I (a normal person with no knowledge of speedruns or glitches) will try and beat Ocarina of Time without a magic bar and just three hearts! Full rules can be found here. But more or less we will play the game in the usual … Continue reading Can You Beat Ocarina of Time With No Magic and Three Heart Containers? – Child Link to Adult Link
The legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D has always been one of my favourite games, as well as my favourite Zelda game. But there has been one thing that has always bothered me slightly about it, and that is the following game: Majora's Mask. I know it's of course a natural part of the … Continue reading Zelda Ocarina of Time: Majora’s Mask Challenge Run Announcement!
Recently I've just got super smash bros ultimate for the Nintendo switch so I thought I'd talk about what I want the last 3 fighters to be since there are only three unannounced in the dlc fighter pack so far. Professor Layton This is an iconic character who I've grown up with playing all of … Continue reading Characters I Want in Smash Ultimate
The biggest problem for me in breath of the wild is the combat, which is one of the most fundamental parts of the game - depending on how you play. I'll start with the most accepted thing before going into the things that are probably more specific to me. The enemy variety is absolutely abysmal. … Continue reading Combat Sucks In Zelda Breath Of The Wild
Pokemon Go has very recently introduced a friendship system to the game where you can actually trade with friends. My first idea here was to go to all of my friends who had completely given up on the game to trade me all of their good stuff. That didn't actually go through so well sadly... … Continue reading Pokemon GO Review – Friendship System (Part 3/16)
Welcome to the 2nd part of my thorough review of Pokémon Go where I discuss every aspect of the app to answer "should you play this game". Sorry for the long wait, I want to review this game before it completely dies in popularity so let's get right too it! Part one can be found … Continue reading Pokémon Go Review – Nicknames are Everything (Part 2/16)
Woah a new switch pokemon just got released out of nowhere! We don't have a lot of information but I thought as an extremely intense and avid pokemon go player I would throw my opinion in. At first I was highly opposed to the idea of throwing a pokeball with a joycon to catch something … Continue reading Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee (Pokemon Go Review Part 1.5/16)
I’m not like other video game reviewers. If I’m going to review something I need to play it to its full over many days and weeks, learning and mastering all mechanics of the game before feeling capable to give it my opinion. But there have been so many updates and changes to the game that … Continue reading Pokémon GO Review – The Big Issue (part 1/16)
This is a huge project I made ages ago about my contempt for the kings quest remake. I like keeping all my projects in one post once I've finished writing them so this is that. I would be open to talk more about video games in the future to do more series' like this e.g … Continue reading Kings Quest 2015 Retrospective – How to Let Down a Fan Base
A while ago I released a post telling people about the huge sale on the visual novels, now I’ve read the first one and I’m ready to talk about it! More people would have watched the anime instead of reading the novels due to the pay wall in the way so I will be more … Continue reading Higurashi: Visual novel and anime comparison
Hey guys welcome to my first post in 2018! I’ve decided to release a bunch of posts in quick succession so that Evangelion month can have a clear start and establish itself without any posts such as these getting in the way! Basically at Christmas I got a Nintendo Switch and decided to talk a … Continue reading I got a Nintendo Switch! My Experiences With The Console And My Friend Code!
The dialogue in this game isn’t really realistic however they’re believable enough to not really matter in the end. I like how easy it is to follow every girl except Monika and how paying attention to their dialogue really helps when creating something to appeal to them. Each moment in the game felt really great … Continue reading Doki Doki Literature Club – Thoughts On Gameplay
In my previous post about this show I talked a lot about the choices presented and I’ll now talk about my general thoughts and ideas as well as the experience of my first play through. Read the previous post first and of course beware of spoilers. Find the first part here. Now that I’ve gone … Continue reading My Experience With Doki Doki Literature Club – Spoilers
In this visual novel you meet four different high school girls who basically force you to join their club: Sayuri, Natsuki, Yuri and Monika. They then make you write a poem every night and the game varies depending on who your poem appeals too and what options you chose within the day. The way the … Continue reading Doki Doki Literature Club And The Controlling Nature Of Free Will
My problem with Hyrule Warriors is to do with the terrible AI and defeat conditions. In each game you will have a main overall goal but be able to lose in a certain way. The defeat conditions which I have a problem with is protecting the allied base and preventing allies from fleeing because it … Continue reading My Problem With Hyrule Warriors
Open world maps tend to be something well respected and admired in fantasy games, particularly RPG’s and JRPG’s. This is because it gives the sense of a bigger adventure and a more important larger world outside of what the characters control. It gives the players a better sense of freedom and exploration to discover things … Continue reading My Problem With Open World Maps In RPG’S
This list is seriously late however If I wrote it in December 2016 it's better to release it late than not at all. Just to clarify this isn't the top 5 games that released in 2016 just the ones that I played. And I played pretty much nothing and my only consoles are PC and … Continue reading The Top 5 Video Games I Played In 2016!
I’ve decided to make this post the last one in the series and to just update this one every time I have something new to talk about unless it gets too long. So this is where I will be talking about the minor things that we’re good / annoyed me or that I just wanted … Continue reading How Sierra Get’s Away With It (King’s Quest Part 10)
So now that I’ve finished dissecting all five chapters it’s time to move on to some of the other minor things that I thought about in the game. Oh wait, there’s another section one section that’s easily overlooked yet still part of the game. That is the epilogue, a short thirty minute section which follows … Continue reading The Adventure Of The King’s Quest Epilogue – (Part 9)
King’s Quest Chapter 5 ends with a huge showdown against Mannanan and his apprentice but that would be all too easy! You must first prove that Graham in his old age is still up to speed in his thinking by going through some more trials. The first trial brings you through an 8-bit graphic segment … Continue reading The Disappointing Ending Of King’s Quest Chapter 5 (Part 8)
Whilst I still found king’s quest chapter 5 a disappointment, I would have considered it a step in the right direction for the game if it came (with a story that made sense) at chapter 3. The reason why this improves is due to the fact that you regain the open world from Daventry or … Continue reading Destroying A Well Established World – King’s Quest Chapter 5 (part 7)
Previously I looked at the first 45 minutes of chapter 4 and I will now continue to explain how the game becomes one massive, boring, ice puzzle. If I was to say that the middle section of the game had 12 puzzles inside it wouldn’t that sound like a lot? The answer is yes however … Continue reading How To Make A Puzzle Game Based Around Just One puzzle – King’s Quest (part 6)
In my series of rant posts against this game I’ve noticed one thing that seems prevalent in most of them. That is a boring intro puzzle sequence which could easily be explained in one or two sentences (as I will demonstrate) and chapter 4 is no exception. The game takes well over 15 minutes to … Continue reading How You Shouldn’t Deliver Exposition– King’s Quest (part 5)
In the last part I wrote about how I disliked the introduction to king’s quest chapter three and I will continue to be talking about more things that I disliked, continuing from the point in the game where I left off. I can’t help but feel like you’re railroaded into choosing who you want as … Continue reading Why King’s Quest Doesn’t Use Linear Puzzles Effectively (King’s Quest part 4)
Whilst Xenoblade Chronicles 3D may not be too challenging to beat, there are places where you need to grind, and it’s hard. Hopefully this guide can help you to grind well and not lose your mind, starting with grinding affinity and then levels. Grinding Affinity This is probably the most unknown method as I haven’t … Continue reading How To Grind EXP and Affinity in Xenoblade Chronicles
King’s quest chapter 3, once upon a climb is far worse than any chapter that came before it. As the 3rd chapter it was meant to mark the tone and future of the next chapters as they lead up to the next conflict. No such thing happened. If you have been following along with these … Continue reading How To Ruin An Introduction – King’s Quest (part 3)
Now that we’ve established that part one did well to create and establish a good world and interesting story, therefore setting the audience’s expectations high. Let’s look at the next chapter “Rubble Without A Cause” and what it did well and what went horribly bad, starting with what was good. I will spoil the premise … Continue reading How To Break A Puzzle Game – King’s Quest (part 2)
Initially I picked up this game because the game grumps were playing it and I thought it looked cool. The first chapter was very cool looking with interesting puzzles so I thought I’d but it for the future as I knew more chapters would be released. So two years later (yes it came out late … Continue reading How To Let Down A Fan Base – King’s Quest (Part 1)
Since Wii U games won’t be playable on the Nintendo Switch (If my sources are correct) I find that I’m only now just starting to want the Wii U. It seems to make a lot of sense. The Wii U has a lot of good games. By march 3rd it will have four Zelda games … Continue reading Nintendo Switch: Time To Buy A Wii U!
