Little Nightmares Review

Little Nightmares Review

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

The first time I ever saw any footage of Bandai Namco’s gruesome puzzle-platformer, Little Nightmares, was at the Golden Joysticks 2016. The trailer appeared on a big screen and from that point I have been following the development of this game very closely. Sharing a similar dark theme to INSIDE and Limbo, games which I enjoyed a lot, it was easy to draw those comparisons and assume the game would deliver the same experience. In actual fact, comparing Little Nightmares to those games would be doing it a disservice, not necessarily because it is a better game but because it delivers an additional experience that was not as obvious in the Playdead’s titles.

The game is in pre-alpha still after releasing in December 2016 and it has developed nicely since it launched with bug fixes and some additional content.

Nintendo Switch: First Impressions

Nintendo Switch: First Impressions

I have managed to get some game time in with the Nintendo Switch this past week since it launched and although the console feels refreshing there are still question marks over how much this console will really change the gaming landscape. Many people believe Nintendo‚Äôs console will revolutionise the way we play games or be a catalyst to changes in the gaming world to move to a more dynamic, handheld solution. These are not thoughts that I share and there are some clear reasons why. Continue reading “Nintendo Switch: First Impressions”
