So, let’s get this out of the way first: I live in Japan, so I have had DK a little over a week earlier than most people I know…so…I think we can all safely assume that I can be Charlie, and you can all be my Angels…except Stubby. Stubby can be Bosley. I have been a DK fan as long as I can remember being a gamer. When I was a wee little lad and all the kids were running off with a hairy Italian man I was like 'No way, not for me, I want me some MONKEY ACTION BABY!' My original favourite Read more [...]

Hanging out with friends used to be a big part of gaming. Going over to their place to play some SNES or breaking out the link cable in a lunch break for a quick pokebattle was all a part of the fun. And as we got a little older many a six pack was shared over a game of Mario Kart on a Friday night. If you wanted to share the gaming experience, you had to do it in person. But now that the internet is a thing I can log onto Steam at any time of day and play a game with thousands of people from all Read more [...]

A tone of the gameplay in the series ranges from being absurdly funny to making mild tactical decisions, such as storming an enemy base, after the commander has bombed it with artillery. It gives you a lot of options, while being simple and challenging: you can fly jets, heal wounded soldiers or Read more [...]

(May be slight spoilers) I didn’t want to open my second review in the same fashion as my first but it has to be said again: The Desolation of Smaug had a lot to live up to. The Hobbit was one of the first full novels I ever read and still love to this day. The Lords of the Rings films are amongst my favourite of all time and the first Hobbit gave me very high hopes for what to expect in this sequel.
