  • Fast RMX Review – Gotta Go Fast!
    Bald Bouncer
    With the fate of Sony’s Wipeout series up in the air and Nintendo in seemingly no rush to bring Captain Falcon out of retirement, futuristic racing games are an endangered breed. Not content to leave this niche dead, Shin’en Multimedia provides their own take on the genre with Fast RMX, bringing a strong core from the Wii U and updating it for the new hardware.

    If you’ve never tried a game like this, it truly is an experience unlike any other racing game. Vehicles hover inches...

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now out- and it is a sumptuous game, unlike truly anything that we have ever seen before. It is also a hard game- harder than any Zelda game in recent memory, harder than most AAA games, in fact. Taking a leaf out of Dark Souls and survival games, Breath of the Wild presents you with multiple scenarios where you can die.

    One of these scenarios is in combat- when even regular enemies can take you out, bosses and the dreaded Guardians...

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Wii U, Switch Versions Compared
    Bald Bouncer
    Comparison videos are starting to emerge between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Wii U and Switch. IGN and Arekkz Gaming already have their videos up which you can see below.

    Though YouTube compression is responsible for hiding the differences in resolution, both versions look remarkably close to each other. There are some differences though and the Switch version does manage to come out on top visually, if only slightly.

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild Is Currently This Gen’s Highest Rated Game
    Bald Bouncer
    There is little doubt that game critics have grown a bit stricter this generation. Higher scores aren’t handed out as frequently and freely as they used to- until today, the highest rated games of this generation were all tied at 93. Critics have, like critics in other media, started to use the whole 10 point scale, leading to a tendency of grade deflation.

    This is largely a great thing- it means the games that do manage to, for instance, cross the 90 barrier on Metacritic, are...

  • Ultra Street Fighter 2 Launches On Switch In May Worldwide
    Bald Bouncer
    Capcom has announced that its umpteenth re-release of Street Fighter 2, the classic fighting game that basically ended up spawning an entire genre in its wake, will be hitting the Nintendo Switch this May. Ultra Street Fighter 2 had been announced for Nintendo Switch beforehand, but we didn’t have a release date or price- now we have both.

    Ultra Street Fighter 2 will cost $40, and will release on May 26. Capcom promises HD and Classic Graphics Modes, Arcade, Versus and Training...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s Map Over 9 Times Larger Than Skyrim’s Map

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will present players with a full fledged kingdom of Hyrule to explore in a seamless open world, for the very first time- as opposed to the hub based pseudo open design that previous Zelda games have had. Nintendo have made it a point to point out that Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule will be massive- but just how massive will that be?

    Well, Crave Online decided to collate and analyze research into this question done by various outlets, and social media and YouTube users, including Arekkz, Eggplante and Polygon, as well as statements by Nintendo themselves. And according to that research, it appears as though The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s world map will come in at a massive 360 square kilometres. For reference, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker‘s world maps were less than a kilometre square; Skyrim‘s world map comes in at just 39 kilometres square. Grand Theft Auto V comes in 81 kilometres square, and The Witcher 3 has 146 kilometres square (and this was before the DLC). Those are all massive- but none of them come close to how massive Zelda is.

    The only game to beat Zelda out is Nintendo’s own Xenoblade Chronicles X, but even that game made the world appear somewhat smaller by allowing for faster traversal via mechs. And as for Nintendo’s previous comments that Breath of the Wild’s map will be ‘over twelve times bigger than the map in Twilight Princess,’ according to Crave, it appears as though Nintendo were accounting for dungeons and other levels in their calculations, too- which is meaningless in a calculation on overworld size comparisons.

    So… yeah, Breath of the Wild looks to be a truly enormous open world. Hopefully, Nintendo have been able to keep it varied and exciting, to keep the player engaged and not unnecessarily pad the game out. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launches on March 3 on Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
