Weekly Round-Up 01.03.2015

Welcome to March everyone, let’s start with what we’ve been up to this last week:

Reviews

Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS Review

“The opportunity to revamp numerous troublesome systems has not been wasted; Majora’s Mask 3DS not only reworks old imperfect systems but adds entirely new quality of life improvements too, making it more accessible than the original.”

Superhero Corner #3: Why We’re More Interested in Ant-Man Than Age of Ultron

Ant-Man-Trailer-1-Photo-The-Costume-1024x552

“With Age of Ultron drawing ever closer the Avengers first big screen reunion is what I should be focused on. However, the last week or two it’s Ant-Man that’s taken up the lion share of my minds superhero real estate.”

Looking Back at Great Games #2 – Super Mario World

“Super Mario Bros 3 was the entry that really built the foundation for the Mario series we know and love today. Sprawling world maps, unique power ups, Koopa kids and the ability to climb vines were all things that Super Mario Bros 3 brought to the table. SMB3 was when 2D Mario really cemented it’s feel after a really strange second outing. Even today New Super Mario Bros adheres to the formula Super Mario Bros 3 pioneered; Super Mario World was no different. Although it did have the honour of being the first instalment to take those rules and build upon them. ”

Adventures In Gaming #3: My First Ever Madden ’15 Win

“When I started the challenge I knew I’d set the target high, turns out the learning curve was more difficult than anticipated. Confronted by foreign concepts like lines of scrimmage, Madden had be baffled. By the close of last week I’d only managed to battle through the tutorials and only began to fathom how an actual game works. I never set out to write two of these features in a row about the same subject, but it’s clear I still hadn’t got to understand Madden properly in one. So, I set myself the target of playing a few matches, with the ultimate goal of understanding how the game works in practice.”

Opinion Short: The Order 1886 Deserves More Praise

2438185-global+exclusive+3

 

“The faults levied against The Order 1886 are not baseless. For the most part they’re wholly accurate: it is very short, mechanically the shooting is vanilla and it’s irrefutably overly reliant on slow moving segments and cinematics. For many the story seems to end there; the mind is made up: ‘The Order 1886 is boring’. And I couldn’t disagree more. The Order 1886 is beautiful, engaging and tells a remarkably well put together story. And for all these merits I feel it’s been under-appreciated.”

Videogame Soundtrack Spotlight: Mass Effect 3

“For our first week ever I’ve chosen Mass Effect 3. I really like the music of the whole Mass Effect franchise, with the suicide mission theme from Mass Effect 2 being by overall favourite. But Mass Effect 3 is the most well rounded.”
