A Link Between Worlds is the first completely new Legend of Zelda game since Skyward Sword on the Wii (all the other games since Skyward have been remakes of older games), and for those fans of the series who have been playing it long enough, it’s a sequel to A Link to the Past for SNES, and takes place in the same game world. I don my green cap, take up the Master Sword, and head into the land of Hyrule to see how many rupees we can dig up.

Created by German design studio, Kurzgesagt, this informative, minimalist animation takes us on a tour through the solar system, stopping off at each of the eights planets to provide a few factoids you may or may not know. The flat design and bright trendy colours belie a rather dark and inevitable truth…
Insomniac Games has treated PlayStation users to the wonderful world of Ratchet & Clank since 2002. A Crack in Time was one of the best in the series in 2009, but since then the destructive duo has had some lacklustre journeys through the co-op universe and the galaxy of tower defense. With Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, have they found their way out of the doldrums, and set their course back into familiar territory?
Invizimals is Sony’s quieter answer to Pokémon, and the current game has two components: the PS Vita Invizimals: The Alliance, and Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom on PS3. We’re reviewing the latter game today, so let’s take a sightseeing tour through the Lost Kingdom, shall we? Read more
If you’ll recall, last year we reviewed XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and we loved it so much we gave it nine and a half prawns. That’s a lot of prawns. The game is back, this time as a standalone expansion pack (ie, you don’t need to own the original XCOM to play it). To prepare for this review, you have some homework—go read the review of the first XCOM game, because much of what I have to say will be covered there; I’m only going to include what’s changed in this review. No need to do things twice, eh? Onward! Read more
Animal hybrids go way back in time. For example, the history of Ligers (a cross between a lion and a tiger) and zeedonks (a zebra-and-donkey combination) dates back to early 19th century. Dirds, however, are a entirely new invention courtesy of the Internet’s most mad scientists.
In a spot of hybrid hijinks, bird bodies and dog heads are being put together in a rather amusing way. Have a look at a small collection of Dirds after the jump.
Angry Birds is one of those odd things—some might call it a phenomenon, but I think that’s taking it a little too far—that takes the entire world by a series of tropical storms and lets loose. It’s available on practically everything from phones to tablets to computers to consoles. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if a version of it appeared for my headphones. It’s spawned dozens of licensed merchandise from toys to books to pyjamas to…well…headphones. Nonetheless, the game, in its Star Wars incarnation, is now out on PS3 and Xbox 360, so I summon the midichlorians and use the Force to find out whether the Force is with this game.
