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

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
