The Nintendo Switch – Fears, Expectations and Hope

Over the past few weeks, Nintendo has finally given us the details about the upcoming console, the Switch. While I pre-ordered my console back when the first trailer was released, I was anxious to see what Nintendo would offer in terms of actual game announcements. After the reveal in January, I gave myself some time […]

Why the 3DS-Direct was a let-down

I love the idea behind the Nintendo Directs: A videogame company produces a video to talk directly to the fans. It’s something more companies could try to do instead of doing press events that can be quite boring. But very often, these Nintendo Directs are a disappointment and the last one was the biggest let-down […]

First Impressions: Mugen Souls Z (Steam Port)

Even though the situation has changed quite a bit, Japanese Role Playing Games (JRPGs) are still kind of rare on PC. They still don’t really feel at home on this platform, after all these years of console exclusivity. Slowly, this is changing, with more and more games getting ported to the PC and published on […]

Review: Another Metroid 2 Remake

I’ve been talking a lot about Metroid these past few weeks. That’s mostly because Nintendo does not seem to care all that much about the franchise, even though they are releasing Metroid Prime: Federation Force, a game that got a lot of heat for being untraditional, and including new Metroid-themed items in Miitomo, which actually […]

Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer Impressions

So, the new Star Wars: Rogue One trailer just came out and you know what that means, right? Everyone and their dog wants to share his and her opinions with you. And I can’t resist doing the same, so I guess we do this dance, all right? The first trailer for Rogue One was great. […]

Retro-Review: Metroid Fusion

  With Metroid’s 30 Birthday happening this year, it feels like the perfect opportunity to revisit the games that made this franchise so great and maybe play some games that I’ve never completed. Metroid Fusion is one of those games: I tried several times to play it, but never managed to reach the end. This […]

Pokémon Go: My personal trainer

I’ve been always wanting to get more fit. While I’m not overweight, I still have a couple of kilos too much on the scale, so I try and move more. Pokémon Go has been a great help in that respect, as it helps me to move more and for a longer time. Right now, I’m […]

Will the NX replace the 3DS too?

When the recent rumours surrounding the Nintendo NX hit the scene a couple of day ago, I took extra care to not react to it too much. Rumours are rumours after all, even if Eurogamer seems to be very confident about them. Since I had some time to reflect on them, I want to share […]

Metroid: A Love Letter

Metroid was one of the last Nintendo-franchises that I discovered for myself. Back when I got my Gamecube, I found Metroid Prime used for cheap and since I had little money back then, I added it to my Gamecube collection, which at that time only consisted of StarFox Adventures and Resident Evil. It quickly became […]
