  • The Best Arcade Fight Sticks For Console Gamers

    With the introduction of games such as Tekken 7 and Injustice 2, playing fighting games has become increasingly fun for everyone. However, if playing such games with a controller has led to cramped hands and blistered thumbs for you to deal with, then you may want to buy a fight stick. A fighting stick basically reproduces the same feel that old arcade machines provided. The joystick and large round buttons provide the hands with a lot of breathing room. However, since all fight sticks are not created equally, here are some of the best arcade fight sticks for you to choose from: F300 May Flash Arcade Fight Stick This is a simple stick for starters; it comes with 8 buttons…

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole Preview – The Coon and Friends

    South Park has a long history of irreverence, and its wholesale approach to laughing at modern day’s silliness has gathered it a large following over the years. It was no surprise, then, that when Obsidian made The Stick of Truth the game became an instant hit, capturing the style and atmosphere of the show and letting it take on classic fantasy and RPG tropes. The sequel was long in the making, with multiple delays along the way, but it’s finally coming to us this month, under a different developer (Ubisoft San Francisco) and the same viciously funny direction from Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Let’s see what South Park: The Fractured but Whole brings with it. We’re superheroes Last time…

  • The Best Games From Sonic The Hedgehog Series

    It’s no secret that Sega’s front-hog hasn’t had much success in recent years. After releases like the glitch infested Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the button mashing marathon that is Sonic and the Black Knight, and the slightly janky Sonic Unleashed, it’s easy to see how our beloved hedgehog has fallen out of favour, becoming the punchline of many a joke within the gaming community. But hope is not lost! The recent release of Sonic Mania has taken us right back to the franchise’s retro roots and reminded us all why we fell in love with Sonic in the first place. In celebration of what will hopefully be the start of a solid Sonic comeback, let’s take a look at some of his better appearances.…

  • Where is Yooka-Laylee for Nintendo Switch?

    Upon the release of Yooka-Laylee back in April of this year, Playtonic Games gave PlayStation, Xbox, and PC fans alike a go at their 3D platformer. This, leaving Nintendo fans a bit out of the loop as the wait to play this Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor began to increase, was greeted with a statement from Playtonic themselves. Mentioning some difficulties they’ve had bringing their cuddly protagonists into the different hardware, they said to fear not because the Nintendo Switch port will happen. Now, nearly a half of a year since Yooka-Laylee hit shelves, Nintendo fans are given an explanation to why their turn at this game, beloved by many, is taking so much time. On Playtonicgames.com, they stated; “we’ve encountered some…

  • PAX West 2017 Impressions: Rocket League’s port to Nintendo Switch and Sony’s Knack 2

    Impressions on the upcoming Rocket League port to Nintendo Switch After walking away from Rocket League for the Nintendo Switch in the Nintendo booth at PAX West, I was left with an assortment of reactions. In most aspects, Rocket League on the Switch feels right at home. Some of this is due to much less input lag when put against its console counterparts, becoming comparable to the likes of the PC version. Another reason to take into consideration is its great feeling local multiplayer. Rocket League will be supporting LAN multiplayer without wifi necessary. With an addition to Rocket League feeling right at home on the Switch’s portable screen, it is undoubtedly a definite purchase for any Nintendo fan out…

    It’s hard to say anybody was blown away by this year’s E3 press conferences, what with Bethesda relying almost solely on VR reboots, Nintendo missing their mark by not announcing many seemingly obvious fan favourites (let’s face it, we’re all still waiting on Animal Crossing Switch!) and Skyrim rearing its six-year-old head in almost every conference. However, there are of course some titles which we’re excited for. Here’s fifteen games we’re looking forward to in the upcoming months. 15) Life is Strange: Before The Storm First up, a well-deserved prequel. Life is Strange: Before the storm.
