Ruaidhri is a huge Co-Op fan, but with the fans screaming out for GTA V’s main game to be Co-Op is this the best course of action for Rockstar?
Female sidekicks in games have over the decades gone from being ‘damsels in distress’ to something more equal in terms of ability and story telling. Ruaidhri examines the games that led to this change in attitude with gender equality in games.

Jonas looks at the past, present and future of Microtransactions and In App Purchases in gaming. How does it affect gamers? Does it work in the studios favour or the gamers?
I’m a latecomer to the Wii U – while I have always been a fan of Nintendo, there was nothing that stood out for me at launch. It is only now, with a big release every month (starting off with Pikmin at the end of July) that I decided to invest in the console. The launch of the Wii U had 2 games that tickled my fancy – and not particularly that hard. New Mario Bros U looked fun (it is), but wasn’t an incentive to buy a console. ZombiU looked promising, but when mixed reviews came out, I decided to hold off until the Nintendo big names launched.

Funny how my first article was written as an after thought (thought up in the shower, actually), which I placed in the Word Press trash bin, only to resurrect as a second after thought. One of our most popular articles, in terms of hits (I guess gamers are drawn to flame baiting, not that I’d intended it as such). It was also the ugliest thing I’d ever written – full of cynicism and a lack of consideration for others, let alone to expand my mind to other things. Richard Dawkins, basically. Here’s round two of my Wii retrospective, and yes – I’m still an asshole, but for different reasons entirely.
This article will give 5 tips for the start-up retro/import games enthusiast to send them on the right road towards a haul of gaming treasure fit for the hall of fame.
