A Hat in Time is well worth your time

I’ve been wanting to play this game since before it came out, but I never got around to buying it. Then Di, my wonderful fellow PMGer, bought it for me for Christmas! And so I binged that bad boy over the next couple of days. Wow, it was a rollercoaster. A Hat in Time is obviously a kid’s game. It looks like a kid’s game, it sounds like a kid’s game, it plays like a kidR...

Co-op mode saves the day for Starlink: Battle For Atlas

It’s fair to say I was excited about getting my hands on Starlink: Battle For Atlas. What I found through a couple of weeks of gameplay was a good concept with some flaws in its execution that’s ultimately saved by its wildly fun co-op mode. Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world, space-based action adventure, where the player leads a heroic team of pilots from the mothership Equinox to free ...

LEGO Incredibles

Nothing will ever beat the experience that was the first LEGO Star Wars game. That’s why, though still good, every other LEGO game succeeding it was still somehow slightly disappointing. LEGO Incredibles is the same, however I reckon it comes the closest to the glory of LEGO Star Wars. The one thing I appreciated the most about LEGO Incredibles, was how they structured the story. All LEGO ga...

Super Mario Odyssey!

Okay, I’m going to be straight up with you. The only other Mario game I’ve ever played is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario for me was always some other console’s Crash Bandicoot (hey, I’m young, and I only played PlayStation as a kid). But Super Mario Odyssey almost made me feel sad I didn’t grow up with Mario. In essence, this game is a nostalgic journey celebra...

ARMS

You might not know the title but you’ll definitely know the game. ARMS is that new Nintendo Switch game where you swing your arms about and hit people with boxing gloves on the end of massive springs. “Oh, so it’s the latest version of Wii boxing?” you say. Woh, now. Hold up! You there, are incorrect. ARMS is nothing like the hypersensitive, jiggly and sometimes frustrating Wii boxing. I’m not sur...

The Nintendo Switch!

To our utter most excitement, Di and I were invited to check out the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s new, quirky console. Our adventure began as we walked cautiously into the fancy lobby of a hotel. We didn’t really know where to go, but after a bit of searching we found a sign that said, “Nintendo. Level 10. Get key from Reception.” After acquiring a key, we entered the elevat...
