Wooing Pigeons in Hatoful Boyfriend


Last night myself and my friend Jason played through one of the scenarios in Hatoful Boyfriend on Twitch. This bizarre pigeon dating sim (complete with bird puns!) made me laugh quite a lot. In part, this was down to Jason's decision to add some voice acting on top for each bird. Take a look at the YouTube video below to hear it for yourself!

Everybody's Gone To The Rapture: First Impressions


I started Everybody's Gone To The Rapture on Tuesday after being intrigued enough by the trailer to want to give it a go. I am only a few hours into it, but so far I am loving this. The slow build up to what I imagine will be the eventual explanation for the villagers' disappearance is interesting.

It is also a beautiful looking game with an equally beautiful soundtrack. Yes, the pacing may feel a little slow, but I think it suits the experience. I have enjoyed slowly taking in the surroundings and exploring each and every house along the way. 

Once I've reached the end I shall post my final review up on 8-Bit Girl. Check back soon!

Visiting Nintendo World, New York

Photo courtesy of Nintendo World Store's website.
From the 24th to the 31st July, I was in New York on holiday with my family. It has been on my list of dream holidays for years, so I was so pleased to find out that my parents had surprised me by booking it up! (Thanks Mum and Dad!)

Being a Nintendo fan, I HAD to visit Nintendo World of course. Situated in the Rockefeller Plaza in New York, it was admittedly a little tricky to find at first as it wasn't as glaringly sign posted as the Lego Store nearby was. The Nintendo World logo is actually pretty subtle! After finally finding it, we went in and picked up a few bits. Here's some of the photos of the store, along with some merchandise I bought. 

If you ever get to visit New York, definitely take a trip into Nintendo World, the only Nintendo shop in the world (and no, Japan does not have one. They have a Pokemon Centre instead, surprisingly).

Here's two screens I snapped at the beginning.

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.
