It’s not uncommon in the slightest to want to do the right thing and align yourself with good when playing video games. Even so much as choosing the slightly more aggressive or confrontational dialogue option when speaking to an NPC can be too much for some (a.k.a me,)...

Game chosen: Pokémon Shield

Starter chosen: Scorbunny

Current time played: 10hrs approx. 

I’m a Pokémon purist, and by that I mean I’ve never really spent much time out of Gen 1. There’s been the occasional dabble into Gen 2 (Pokémon Gold 4ever) but as far as my brain com...

You would think that someone who spent the majority of their childhood building houses and neighbourhoods on sandbox games like The Sims and Zoo Tycoon would know a thing or two about how to create a fun, playable environment. Well the thing is... apparently not. I'm b...

 I promise you, I have tried countless times to get into big, heavy, turn-based strategy gaming. I have so many half-finished titles that are just sitting there waiting for me to find the motivation to pick them up again. The only issue being is that they don't really...

It feels as if we've reached a point in time where every single gamer has had some kind of experience with Minecraft, whether that be first hand or not. However before 2016, although I had heard of the game, I had zero clue into what actually went on inside it. I alway...

 For those of you that don't know, I currently work as a content producer for health website Patient Info. This is my day job. I make and edit videos, interview experts and write articles. I've written about a range of subjects so far, but this one has been my favourit...

 After what feels like an eternity, the long awaited Super Smash Bros Ultimate is finally upon us! Since the moment we first opened that special edition box we haven't played anything else and have just been rinsing through every possible option that the game has to of...

Oh my god oh my god oh my god AHHHHH!

THE SPYRO REMAKE IS FINALLY HERE!

I have been so fricking excited for this game ever since the Crash Bandicoot remake came out (we always knew they were going to do a Spyro one, I mean come on) and now it's finally here and I have it...

 'Survival Horror Game' are probably some of the worst words I could hear together as a combination. I don't fuck with horror - never have done, never will. The idea of being scared, whether it be creeped out (nope) or jump scares (double nope) fills me with such a sen...

Last weekend Reece and I decided that our next joint game purchase was going to be the new Super Mario Party for the Nintendo Switch. I often get a bit worried buying party games like this as there's the potential that they'll just sit and gather dust on the shelf unti...

 Now I know I've not long since spoken about the first Bayonetta game, but when you suddenly discover your new favourite series of all time it's hard not to go on about it every waking second. 

After I'd finished the first game, and discovered there was a second, I went...

 I feel very fortunate that I've had the privilege to have games become such a huge part of my life in recent years, but if I were to have one regret it would be that I didn't start with the Legend of Zelda games sooner.

So recently I just finished Breath of the Wild (t...

Hi, my name is Gemma. I like long walks on the beach, violent Russian history, trippy 80s nostalgia and beat 'em up video games. 

Mother Russia Bleeds was one of those games that caught my eye on the PlayStation store and proceeded to say 'hey, I wanna get that!' e...

In my last post I spoke about how I struggled with challenging platformers and that I didn't really like to play them that much. So naturally of course I decided that this week I should play/write about a very challenging platformer. Makes sense, no? The difference wit...
