The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Skyrim are both fantastic Role Playing Games with vast expansive open worlds to explore. Despite deriving within the same genre The Witcher 3 and Skyrim feel different on so many levels. The obvious differences are that Skyrim is almost 4 years older than The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Bethesda and CD Projekt RED are clearly different developers. I want to break this down and try to and dissect my experiences between Skyrim and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In terms of time, Skyrim has the edge as I have put over seventy hours in to it whereas I’m just over twelve hours in to The Witcher 3. Does this mean I am going to be bias? No not at all. I have the upmost admiration for both of these games and I feel it’s important to embrace the differences as well as similarities…

It safe to say that we're in the middle of a serious Amiibo craze right now. Nintendo released a plethora of Amiibo characters and plan on releasing a load more in the very near future. In fact, the Amiibo character list is growing rapidly, especially in the U.S. What is an Amiibo? And why are they so popular? Amiibo's are interactive plastic figures; recognisable to most, that are designed to enhance the experience of certain Wii U and 3DS titles. Titles like Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors etc. Characters like Mario, Yoshi and Link are the most common and can easily be bought from stores. More obscure Amiibo characters like Mario - Gold Edition are more exclusive to the market. As it stands Nintendo have also announced Mario - Silver Edition so you had better get your pre-orders in now if you want it.

When gamers heard the words Final Fantasy in the late 90s/early 2000's, most associated it with large scale, grand and epic video games. Games that immersed the player in a large world and a story full of intrigue, adventure and wonder. They contained characters we loved and some we hated. Areas and scenes we'll never forget, battles that had us at the edges of our seats and music to wrap it all into one almost perfect package. And it wasn't just Final Fantasy that allowed us to feel this way. There were dozens of games being developed at that time who, while not reaching the levels of success as Squaresoft did with Final Fantasy, still managed to keep things fresh in a genre many people hold dear to their gaming hearts: the Japanese Role Playing Game.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood launched today on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. The physical edition will be available on May 15th 2015 in Europe. Wolfenstein was always a big hit on the PC back in my day although I can say that I was never that passionate about it back in the early 90's. In fact, I have no idea why? The Wolfenstein franchise as a whole is a remarkable feat that started with Castle Wolfenstein back in 1981 released on the Apple II, MS-DOS, Commodore 64 and Atari. Fast forward to 2015 and we are ten games in to the series with Wolfenstein: The Old Blood being the latest shooter to the series.

We're well in to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and more recently the Nintendo Switch eras of gaming. Graphics had never looked so smooth and gameplay had never flowed so fluently. Let's not forget the triumphant last Generation of gaming with the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii; all of which I have a lot of time for.
