The games we yearned for in September, and your chance to win one of them!

New Zealand spent the month of September in lockdown, and I was definitely one of the sad people looking up games that might just cheer me up. Our friends at PriceSpy looked at our search trends for September and have listed the top five games we looked up. About a year after release, Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure has taken the number one spot! Not only are people trying to find games, but i...

Lots of Game News and Real Life Cluedo!

Usually I try to get a good balance of news from the different corners of entertainment: movies, TV, games, and collectibles. But this week is unashamedly all about my favourite corner, games. Cyberpunk 2077 did an info dump in a 14 minute stream, Nintendo dropped some bombs in their Direct this week, and apparently PUMA have always wanted to make a gaming chair. Also, I’m not joking about r...

Board Game TV Shows and a ‘new’ Windows Update

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Ubisoft have been wanting to do a crossover with Nintendo for years, and now it’s finally here. Okay, before you run away thinking, “Raving Rabbids and Mario? What a weird combo,” first hear me out! Yes, it’s a weird combo – but it doesn’t come across as forced! The game boasts a very pretty art style that suits both universes. And so, the Rabbids and the residents of the Mushroom Kingdom, f...

Splatoon 2

When the Switch first came out, there were scoffers and catcallers that cried, “Hey, look! Nintendo’s trying to make Splatoon a thing!” Pay them no heed. By now, they are surely eating their words, because Splatoon 2 is the shooter you didn’t know you needed. On the surface, it looks like a child’s introduction to shooters. But what Splatoon does is turn the genre on its head. While the aesthetic ...

Nintendo didn’t have a presentation on a stage, but rather a series of pre-recorded videos which were streamed. I guess it helped with the English subtitles for the Japanese speakers. It was also the shortest presentation of the lot and only went for half an hour. I was expecting a lot of Nintendo Switch games, but the entire thing was just Nintendo Switch games! Not that I was complaining. ...

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...
