The Best and Worst of Mario Kart

Nintendo often gets criticised for releasing the ‘same games’ over and over again and Mario Kart is perhaps a very obvious example of that.

Donkey Kong and Kid Icarus; A Curious Comparison

Donkey Kong and Kid Icarus. Other than being two Nintendo owned franchises, they don’t have all that much in common, do they?

5 Wrongly Overlooked Donkey Kong Games

The Donkey Kong series is one which I’ll always be hugely fond of. It’s full of tonnes of absolutely classic games, but for some reason, even the most popular  games in the series are a little less well known than those of other series, and so the more obscure games in the series get unfairly […]Read More
