WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
It’s such a shame that Nintendo doesn’t seem to know what to do with the Paper Mario series anymore. The first three entries are fantastic games that I could easily recommend to anyone with even a passing interest in RPGs or games with well-written stories and dialogue. Of those three, there’s no denying that the GameCube title, The Thousand-Year Door, is the best one. I could write several of these articles on that game alone with how many memorable moments it has, but for this instance, I’m going to focus on the game’s first major boss fight. Continue reading
Apologies again for the lateness of this one but the most recent Entertainment Dome is now up, where James gets to gush about Fire Emblem: Three Houses and I share my first impressions of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

I never realised how much I missed playing WarioWare games until I tried out the demo for the latest entry – WarioWare Gold. It was like meeting up with an old friend you hadn’t seen in years and finding out that you’re still on the same wavelength and have a fun time together. And considering the last WarioWare game came out in 2013 (assuming you even count Game & Wario, that is), I feel that comparison is perfectly apt.
But is WarioWare Gold deserving of that name? Is it the game that long-time fans have been waiting for? Or is it just like Wario himself and full of hot air? How about I stop asking rhetorical questions and we get on with the review. Continue reading
Paper Mario: Sticker Star is one of those things that simply remembering that it exists makes me kind of angry. It was so disappointing and so boring to play that I couldn’t even be asked to finish it. There are only a few positive things that I have to say about it – it’s music being one of them, like this track.
