Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate review

From its opening scene, which forces you into a naval battle against a massive sea beast and sees you crawling on its back at one point, it’s clear that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is trying to offer something different to its predecessors. Granted, its underlying aim remains the same: as...

Who Is The New 3DS Actually For?

Console launches are usually met with excitement, but Nintendo’s latest iteration of the 3DS has inspired little enthusiasm. In light of that, we found ourselves asking… who’s actually going to buy it? There have now been four generations of 3DS… within one generation. That doesn’t make sense, right? Nintendo has...

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D review

Barely anything has been compromised in Xenoblade Chronicles’ journey to handheld. Xenoblade Chronicles didn’t quite enjoy the enormous success many believed it deserved on Wii.

It was a 3D, cel-shaded beauty...

Nintendo fights back

It’s been a bipolar year for Nintendo, but things seem to be getting back on track – yet how long will it last, and can the company keep the momentum going? ony and Microsoft are absolutely killing it – their rivalry is comparable to the Apple/Google war, or the Amazon/eBay...

Super Smash Bros. 3DS review

Trying to cram Nintendo’s flagship brawler into its 3D handheld console might seem like folly, but for the most part Super Smash Bros. for 3DS works. It is by some means a sterling achievement, not least because the chaotic action has been transported from the spacious domain of the television...
