I know I’m late in saying this but, damn, this really is a new decade, huh? I never even considered it until it was pointed out to me. A lot has happened in the last ten years, and after looking at some good-looking games that are coming in the future, I’d like to reminisce about all the awesome games from the past. And, boy, there were a lot.
So, since everyone else has done it and I apparently have as much originality as a live-action Disney remake, here’s a list of some of my all-time favourite games to have been released throughout the 2010s – one from each year (I’m using the European release dates BTW). Continue reading →
James and I wrap up our thoughts on this year’s E3 with a quick run-down of everything revealed at Square Enix and Nintendo’s presentations.
There was a time when Kingdom Hearts III was a punchline. Nothing more than vaporware; something that only existed as fan-fictions and fake box arts. It was synonymous with hell freezing over. And right now, the Devil himself is neck deep in snow. Even after it was announced back in 2013, it still didn’t feel real. But as the years went on, as we slowly saw more trailers and heard new details, myself and many others realised that this was, in fact, happening.
And now it’s out. You can go and buy Kingdom Hearts III and actually play it. But now that it exists, we must ask that dreaded question – was it worth the wait? This is a title that fans have been waiting for since 2005 when Kingdom Hearts II released, and acts as the finale to a story-line that’s been ongoing since the first game came out in 2002. Fans’ expectations have been ridiculously high so does it meet them? Is it the conclusion longtime fans deserved or is about as fun as going to an overcrowded Disneyland in the rain?

Last week on The Entertainment Dome, we only had one episode of RWBY Volume 6 to chat about before moving on to a feel-good story about a certain charity stream and one last Kingdom Hearts III discussion before the game’s release.
If you wish to donate to Mermaids, you can do so either via the website mermaidsuk.org.uk or phone 0808 801 0400.
Last week on The Entertainment Dome, James lets me ramble about some of the newest Kingdom Hearts III info before he gets excited over that leaked Harry Potter game and we share our thoughts on the latest Into the Spider-Verse trailer (sorry for the audio peaking).
Last week on The Entertainment Dome, James and I had a surprisingly brief recap of the last couple of Attack on Titan episodes (which were disgusting, BTW), before moving on to a bunch of the announcements from the latest Nintendo Direct.
Last week on the Entertainment Dome, James and I were finally able to talk about all the juicy new Kingdom Hearts III details we got from E3, including the brand new Frozen world, the Ratatouille minigame, plot details and much more.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, James and I are less than impressed with the Detroit: Become Human demo (to the point where we don’t even remember the game’s name), before moving on to a good PS4 game – God of War – and then we wrap things up with a quick look at the new Kingdom Hearts III details.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, following that obnoxious hiatus, I pretty much take over the show and subject James and you to all my opinions on the new Kingdom Hearts III info that was revealed last month (apologies for the weird fade-in at the beginning).
Say what you will about 2017 as a whole, but it’s definitely been a fantastic year for videogames. Sure, it’s not been perfect – Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite failed to live up to its legacy and suffered in sales as a result, Platinum’s newest darling, Scalebound, got cancelled, killing one of the few exclusives the Xbox One had, and the lootbox craze has only worsened thanks to the likes of Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Star Wars Battlefront II.
On the plus side, though, Persona 5 finally launched and met all of our expectations, Sonic Mania was a successful return to form for the Blue Blur (in terms of his 2D games, at least) and the Nintendo Switch has pretty much killed it since its release with the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Super Mario Odyssey.
It’s going to be a tough year to top, but 2018 looks set to have some pretty kick-ass games too. But which ones am I looking forward to the most (and most likely won’t have time to play because, God damn, 2017 had too many good games I still need to play through)? Well, let me share them with you and, hopefully, they’ll turn out to be as fantastic as I think they will be. Continue reading →
