WWE Brawl – What Could Have Been

Wrestling is a bit silly, isn’t it? Ridiculously over-the-top characters hitting each other with ridiculous, over-the-top moves. It’s awesome! And nothing captured that attitude better than WWE All-Stars, which exaggerated each of the wrestler’s key features to caricature levels. Hogan’s 24 inch pythons become 24 foot anacondas, Andre the Giant had hands as big as Rey Mysterio and no special move was complete without at least 2 flips around the ring. So imagine my elation and immediate disappointment once ran an article about the cancelled WWE Brawl, the third game in a strategy by the now defunct THQ to … Read More »

Making a Case for… Roundabout

Roundabout is an odd game. So much so, that defining it as something conceivable is a bit of a struggle. You could say that it’s technically a driving game, by virtue of the fact that you operate an automotive vehicle; the vehicle in question here being a constantly revolving limo that you use to pick up and drop off clients. However, that would be like classifying Telltale’s The Walking Dead as just a zombie game… You’d be missing the point.

There are some amongst you who might have missed out on the gory pleasure of ripping your opponent’s spine from their body, and to those I say this; what’s wrong with you?!  Mortal Kombat X is one of the best fighting games of this generation, and Netherrealm have brought forth a shiny new XL edition to draw you back into the cacophony of violence. The question is: is it worth it?
