Let’s NEVER Talk About Fantastic Four

Normally, I don’t feel particularly sorry for actors when they take on certain roles in films, particularly superhero ones, because by and large, you should know what you’re getting into when you take it on. Some roles, I understand, might take a bit more convincing purely based on who the character is and whether they’re…

Let’s NOT Talk About Pete Sampras Tennis ’96

In 1999, my mum and brother took me along with them to watch the tennis in Nottingham, back when the Nottingham tennis tournament was still a thing. It’s a well established fact in our family that I REALLY didn’t want to go. In fact, I was so against going that I grumbled for weeks knowing…

Let’s NEVER Talk About Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition

You know when you want something SO MUCH even when you KNOW it’s not right or good or is a waste of time and money? Well a few years ago, when I was on the hunt for flats, I spotted this GORGEOUS place that I absolutely wanted with every fibre of my being. The view…

Let’s NOT Talk About Pocket Tennis Color

People, I like tennis and I like tennis games and in a weird way I like this game because it’s a perfectly perfunctory tennis game but good lord are you about to be bombarded with reasons as to why tennis DOES NOT WORK ON A VERY SMALL SCREEN. Oi yoi yoi… tennis on a handheld….

Let’s NOT Talk About El Viento

Como el nombre de este juego está en español, pensé que escribiría la introducción en español también. Por supuesto, usted probablemente tendrá que google traducir esto para averiguar lo que significa lo siento, pero no lo siento. And no. I didn’t take Spanish at secondary school. I’m a master at google translate though so blame that….

Let’s NOT Talk About Tobal No.1

Little story you before we get started: do you know why people remember this game? Do you know the REAL reason as to why people, particularly American gamers, remember this game? It’s this little thing called a Demo Disc that came with this game. What demo, you ask? Final Fantasy 7. You know, one of the…

Let’s NEVER Talk About VR Troopers

The 90s was a weird snapshot of history in terms of TV and music. I mean, we got the likes of the Spice Girls hitting us with girl power every moment we could, Ace of Base were singing about a woman who wanted to pop out a few more sprogs and I’m fairly sure that…

Let’s NEVER Talk About Swing

Balls to it all, gentlepeople of the interwebs. Balls to it all. I am not going to start off this review by being nice about this game because there are absolutely zero to be nice about. Have you ever played a puzzle game? Have you ever wondered what makes a puzzle game fun? Well apparently…

Let’s NOT Talk About Hard Edge

I have to let you into a little secret here because I’m not sure how you’re going to take this: I never played Resident Evil. And you can say what you like about that fact but given that I was probably 12/13 when that game came out and my brother was actually quite protective of…

Let’s NEVER Talk About Double Dragon V

I have to admit I don’t and never did get the cult status of the Double Dragon series. If anything, every single version of the game that I played, save for the most recent Neon reboot, was pretty much an example of how NOT to code a decent game. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a…

Let’s NEVER Talk About Bonkers

Disney in the 90s seemed to be going great guns, didn’t it? I mean, after the majesty of films like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and the Lion King, suddenly things seemed to be springing back into life for them after a sort of… unusual period. We’re talking that gap between the Jungle Book and…

Let’s NEVER Talk About Ballz

Remember the 90s? Remember the years when Ace of Base told us they saw a sign and the Spice Girls told us how to be their lover and then Haddaway had to ask what love even was? Those were good times. Those days were great. And amidst all of this greatness, we really got a…
