Florence and Me: My Relationship with a Mobile App

As I write this, I have a warm cup of coffee on my desk. I’ve lit a candle.

LocoRoco Remastered

In eye-bleeding colours and unrelenting song that will either have you really annoyed or singing along, LocoRoco Remastered is now on PS4! So what is a “LocoRoco”? It’s a round jelly-like creature that has the ability to roll, jump and split or merge itself. Apparently it also really cares...

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered

Many years ago, a little 2D dog burst on to the PlayStation scene bringing one of the earliest games of the music and rhythm genre. It featured addictive songs and funky characters including a flower, a chicken and an onion. I remembered PaRappa the Rapper to be one of the most-played games in a party setti...
