Top three time. True to form I’m struggling to think of anything else to write in this opening paragraph as the list comes to its climax. So let’s pull something out of my ass… This might the first time I’ve written one of these lists that hasn’t had a 3DS game on it. I might be showing my hand a little bit here despite the list not being over yet.
But it feels like Nintendo really are winding down on their handheld system now with the release and subsequent success of the Switch. It’s exciting really, seeing all of these games that were 3DS franchises making the move to to a device with graphics comparable to the Switch. Pokemon, Phoenix Wright, the Mario & Luigi RPG series. But the consequence is that the 3DS hasn’t had the best year. It’s had its last gasps, With the likes of Samus Returns, but I hope we hear something more concrete from Nintendo regarding it in the coming months.

#9: Star Wars Battlefront II

#5: Horizon Zero Dawn
#4: Super Mario Odyssey

A bunch of developers, large and small, show up and pedal their wares, so to speak. On top of that there are plenty of other attractions. People selling niche and retro merchandise based on video games, or other things the type of people who go to this type of event will probably like. Continue reading “My time at EGX 2017”
You know, I didn’t have very high expectations for this movie before it came out. Its trailers seemingly confirmed my fears that the movie wasn’t going to be what I wanted it to be. But you know what, when the talk started and a lot of people were saying it was good, I thought I’d give it a shot. So I did. Guess what… Assassin’s Creed it bad.

Like last year, I need to end a 10 day series of celebration by complaining about something. However good the games of 2016 were, there were still some big old stinkers. but that’s not what I’m going to talk about in this post. I’m not talking about bad games, well I am, but I’m specifically going to list the three games that disappointed me this most this year. Titles that I had genuine high hopes for, and had them dashed soundly once I picked them up. Continue reading “Wooderon Most Disappointing Games of 2016”
