Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. From Software (2019) PlayStation 4

I’ve played Sekiro for about 2 months now and after several false starts, a few rage quits and more than my fair share of childish meltdowns I finally beat the game on the easy ending and despite this, am slightly

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Konami (1997) PlayStation

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is a game everyone and their dog have told me I would love, but for dozens of reasons I never played it and it reached a stage where I was actively avoiding SotN  because there was

Bloodborne. From Software (2015) PlayStation 4

Bloodborne feels like a game that From Software really wanted to make. It feels almost the antithesis of Dark Souls 2, which to me felt like a semi-rushed contractual obligation rather than a labour of love. Bloodborne is a game

Dark Souls III. From Software (2016) PlayStation 4

If you want to catch up on my views on Dark Souls and Dark Souls II you can do, but to quickly summise; Dark Souls “Brilliant” and Dark Souls II “Meh”.  Caught up? Good, now let’s get to headbutting those

Dark Souls II. From Software (2014) Xbox 360

I loved Dark Souls, the game was pretty hard (Earthworm Jim is harder) but was as tight as a gnat’s chuff hole and not an ounce of fat in need of a trim. So when I finished it, I  immediately

Dark Souls. From Software (2011) Xbox 360

Who likes smashing their face against a wall repeatedly? Because that is what happens in Dark Souls. It is a game where you headbutt a concrete wall so many times that you’ll eventually start to chip away at it. You

Golden Axe Warrior. Sega (1991) Sega Master System

I’ll be honest, I thought I was going to absolutely hate this game. I don’t especially like the Golden Axe series, and lets be honest, this game looks like a Legend of Zelda clone. So let me take you on

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Nintendo/Capcom (2004) Gameboy Advance

I truly hated Oracle of Ages, so much so that I originally gave it zero percent. I felt Capcom got it all wrong by introducing too much 1980’s Capcom difficulty and obtuseness.  My opinion on it mellowed after some time, but

Beyond Oasis, Ancient (1995) Sega Genesis

Called The Story of Thor: A Successor of The Light in Europe, but as there is no mention of anybody, or anything named Thor, we’ll break from tradition and call this game by the American title, and feature the American
