Remembering Satoru Iwata



The games industry recieved some sad news this week. 

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away at the age of 55 after a long battle with cancer on the 12th July. 

Iwata was truly a key name in the gaming industry, helping to develop games in the Super Smash Bros, Kirby and Pokemon series as a programmer at HAL Laboratory before joining Nintendo in 2000. In May 2002, Iwata succeeded Hiroshi Yamauchi as the company's President. It was under his direction that Nintendo pursued the development of the Nintendo DS and Wii consoles in 2004 and 2006, the DS becoming one of the most successful handhelds of all time.

E3 2015: My Most Anticipated Titles, Part 3


Firstly, apologies for the delay on this post, my work has been a little hectic as of late.

So, we have arrived at the third and final part of my E3 posts! Here you'll find the final eight games that I am looking forward to playing when they are released. Feel free to go back and read Part 1 and Part 2.


Super Mario Maker




Super Mario Maker is a level editor game, allowing players to create their own Super Mario levels. You'll also be able to play through them, and try out others creations. From the footage released so far, it is shaping up to be perhaps one of the best Wii U games available.

E3 2015: My Most Anticipated Titles, Part 2



E3 is always a great time for gamers. It gets us discussing our favourite reveals, and the least-popular upcoming releases. Even in the more disappointing conferences had their moments to shine too. 

Part 1 saw me list some of my most anticipated games that were announced at E3, and Part 2 continues this. Read on, and see if you agree with my choices!

PS4 Share: The Beauty in Tomb Raider

I have been re-playing Tomb Raider on the PS4 after picking it up in the sale when I got the console for my birthday in April. I loved Tomb Raider when I played it on the Xbox 360. I've always been a fan-girl of Lara Croft anyway, but the revamp really stuck with me. I loved the gameplay, the story and this new version of one of gamings most familiar heroines. 

Check out this screenshot I took whilst playing a few nights ago. It really reminded me just how beautiful this game can be!


E3 2015: My Most Anticipated Titles, Part 1


E3 2015 was a mixed bag this year, with plenty of exciting, big reveals, but also a few disappointments along the way too. 

For me, Microsoft, Sony and Bethesda were the sure-fire winners, presenting a range of hotly anticipated games, whilst select announcements Nintendo (Metroid Prime Federation Force and Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival) and EA (sports and mobile games...hmmm) were among the disappointments. Below is a list of the games that I am personally looking forward to the most. Please note that this is my own list, so you may agree or disagree with what I have chosen!
