Yesterday Nintendo published a new presentation from president Satoru Iwata – all about the Wii U and some of the things we can expect in the next year or so. I think Nintendo were feeling the heat – the Wii U hasn’t performed as well as they would have liked and so they wanted to show theres some awesome stuff […]
Oh my – this looks amazing. I am really intrigued to see how Microsoft Illumiroom works in reality. For me this has more potential than Kinect (although I couldn’t tell you why). Most impressed. I just hope it’s used well and is more than a very clever gimmick. I particularly like the demo where the entire room shakes and vibrates.
There’s a new version of Pokemon coming to the 3DS. It’s been a while since I’ve played Pokemon properly and this looks like a good progression in the series from where I last left off. I especially like that the battles now happen in 3D – those 2d fights are just lame. From what I can see there aren’t any […]

Karateka is an old old game. In fact it was first released in 1984 on the Apple II. Now it’s undergoing a remake for the iPhone and iPad. The gaming landscape has changed a lot in the intervening years and so there have been a number of interesting game design challenges to overcome – thankfully it looks like they have […]
This reimagining of the Tomb Raider series looks right up street. I am more excited about this than any other adventure game currently. Really looking forward to seeing where Square Enix go with it. Stranded, assaulted by the elements and the inhabitants of a dangerous island, and cut off from the outside world–it’s been a bad trip for Lara Croft. […]
Ron Gilbert, he of Monkey Island and Psychonauts fame, has published the first trailer for his upcoming adventure game – The Cave. He’s written about the game loads on his blog – Grumpy Gamer. The Cave is looking visually very nice – and it seems to have loads of personality, like all of his games. I’m hoping it will be […]
