Feature: The Legacy of Pokémon

Preface

For over twenty-three years, the Pokémon franchise has been a constant and welcomed presence in my life. This massively successful series started in 1996 in Japan, with the release of Pokémon Red & Pokémon Green for the Nintendo Game Boy by a company called Game Freak. Its huge financial success and popularity eventually found its way overseas, finally reaching Europe in 1999. It continued to dominate the lives of children and their parents’ wallets with an obscene amount of content and merchandise, such as toys, animation, trading cards, and video games. At twelve years old, it was impossible for me to avoid the craze that had captured the attention and imagination of kids throughout the world. Here, I will attempt to recount my own memories of the Pokémon series, and share highlights from my personal journey through a franchise that means so much to me.

Pivotal Moments in Pokémon History

With the 25th anniversary fast approaching, we are taking a deep dive through Pokémon history, looking at some of the biggest decisions made in the mainline games that have had a lasting impact. In this article, we will look at everything from the original release of Pokémon Red and Green in Japan, all the way to Pokémon Sword and Shield in 2019.

The Case for Persona 5 on Switch

As of late, alongside dabbling in island life with Animal Crossing: New Horizons, I have been delving deep into the hearts of criminals to change their evil ways in Persona 5 Royal on Playstation 4. It’s an incredibly meaty game, having already spent over 100 hours in before I’ve even reached its climax, and I would love to share the experience with more people. But there’s just one problem, it’s platform specific to Playstation right now. If you’re reading on this site, there’s no doubt that you definitely have a Switch but probably not a PS4. It seems baffling that Atlus seems to be ignoring the platform outside of smaller titles or the Nintendo published Tokyo Mirage Sessions, there is no doubt in my mind that there is a demand for Persona 5 and other Atlus titles on the platform. So let’s look into the matter, what factors are there in Persona’s favour and what exactly could it be holding it back?

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

REVIEW – WarioWare Gold

Me and Wario both have a lot in common. We both enjoy the sweet smell and taste of garlic, we’re both a bit on the tubby side, we are both relatively poor, and, most importantly, we both have a passion for games.

Wario and his ‘friends’ from Diamond City are finally back, now with over 300 different microgames. You better get ready to pick some noses, pull off some smooth moves, and much more before time runs out in WarioWare Gold for Nintendo 3DS Family Systems.

WAAAAH! I’m not tubby, just big boned… yeah, big boned. Also, I have plenty of friends, I paid them plenty of coins to hang around me. Some would I was being two generous giving them ten whole coins (to share), so I gave them five instead. Why did I even give you this game for FREE when you’re just gunna insult me!

Errrm, okay… so, is WarioWare Gold’s fun factor as hefty as a lovely bar of gold, or is it more empty than Wario’s wallet? Find out in our review, after the break!

HEY!
