Discover the Horrors of Dating with Monster Prom’s Super Rare Collector’s Edition

By |October 26th, 2020|Nintendo, Nintendo Switch|

Take it from me, dating can be full of horrors, especially in your early adolescence. What if however, everyone were monsters, and I mean actual monsters, not just a bunch of unruly prepubescent teenagers. Enter Monster Prom, the multiplayer dating sim where your objective is to get a date for prom at your typically wacky monster high school. Play matchmaker on yourself as you try to woo the most wretched, yet lovable, students on campus.

Super Rare Games are giving Monster Prom some extra love, not only are they releasing a 5,000 copy physical edition with the usual game cartridge (with extra content and DLC pre-installed), a fully illustrated manual, and a special trading card and sticker for £27, but a 1,500 copy Collector’s Edition will also be available for purchase. This edition includes a SteelBook case, a 68 page full-colour hardback yearbook with tons of artwork and stickers, a temporary tattoo, a collector’s pin badge, 10 physical instant camera photos, a collectible driving license, a high school diploma, and two packs of trading cards… that’s a lot of gubbins for £75!

You don’t have to wait long to order either as both editions will go up for sale just in time for Halloween this Thursday 29th October from 6pm GMT. As usual, this will be exclusively available from the Super Rare Games website.

REVIEW – Pokémon Sword and Shield: The Crown Tundra

By |October 25th, 2020|Pokémon, Review|

The Crown Tundra is the second part of Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Expansion Pass. In my earlier review, I covered the first section of this downloadable content for Pokémon Sword, with The Isle of Armor, an area of Galar that features a new wild area and a short story featuring a new Pokémon called Kubfu. This latest update expands the region further into a snow-swept environment, where you can explore Pokémon dens and encounter powerful Pokémon! This new region was confirmed to be based on Scotland, United Kingdom!

REVIEW – Filament

By |October 23rd, 2020|Review|

A ship floats silently across the starry sky, the planet beneath swathed in an aura of pinks and blues… or would that be green? Aboard the vessel, our hero arrives, welcome to the mighty Alabaster of Filament Corp design.

Our story isn’t of action, nor of horrific sights, instead, it’s full of hope and puzzling lights. Does this game of Filament light up that bulb of the brain, or does it remain darkened, making this journey in vain? Find out in our review, after the break!


Cadence of Hyrule: Symphony of the Mask Review

By |October 22nd, 2020|Cadence of Hyrule, Cadence of Hyrule, Review, The Legend of Zelda|

Cadence of Hyrule already made waves for being a totally unexpected crossover between one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises and an indie darling, so it came as a surprise to many of us that even more was planned for the pipeline. The announcement of a season pass came out of nowhere, with a slew of new content being added to the game. The first parts of the pack added new characters and remixed music, but the really exciting bit was the final piece of the expansion, an entirely new story mode introducing a Skull Kid into the game. With a new play style in hand, does Symphony of the Mask live up to the expectations already set by the base game, or does it fall tone death to the melody?


REVIEW – Super Mario 3D All-Stars

By |October 10th, 2020|Review|

2020 marks thirty-five years since Super Mario Bros. first launched on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and the plumber has featured in many different games ever since. 1996 saw the series’ revolutionary transition into the 3D world with Super Mario 64, followed by various other 3D ventures. As part of this year’s celebrations, Nintendo have launched this ‘star-studded’ compilation, showcasing the best Mario’s 3D world has on offer.

Jump through paintings and collect Power Stars in Super Mario 64, clean up some graffiti while basking in the sun in Super Mario Sunshine, and soar through the stars and defy gravity in Super Mario Galaxy. Does Super Mario 3D All-Stars reach for the gas-filled interstellar spheres, or is it starting to show its age? Find out in our review, after the break!
