Star Fox Zero – Flying Through The Bullshit

I played about 5 hours of Star Fox Zero today and I'm just so excited that I have to write out these impressions and clear up some things about this game immediately.

Call of Duty players laughed at their primitive graphics, Halo players insulted … Continue reading FPS on Wii U, will Third Parties drop the ball again?

Racing Developers – Let Me PLAY YOUR GAMES

Polyphony, Codemasters, System 3, Turn 10, SimBin, Brain In A Jar, this is directed towards ALL of you. I've been enjoying Supercar Challenge lately with my new wheel, playing a good few hours every few days. It's the most satisfyingly realistic driving simulator I've ever felt.
