Pokémon Go: My personal trainer

Pokemon Go Logo

I’ve been always wanting to get more fit. While I’m not overweight, I still have a couple of kilos too much on the scale, so I try and move more. Pokémon Go has been a great help in that respect, as it helps me to move more and for a longer time. Right now, I’m at least walking 6 km each day on my Pokémon hunts, which doesn’t sound like that much, but it’s a huge change for me and it has helped me loose a kilo in my first week of using the app in this way.

When the recent rumours surrounding the Nintendo NX hit the scene a couple of day ago, I took extra care to not react to it too much. Rumours are rumours after all, even if Eurogamer seems to be very confident about them. Since I had some time to reflect on them, I want to share some ideas and thoughts about them with you.

Metroid: A Love Letter

Metroid was one of the last Nintendo-franchises that I discovered for myself. Back when I got my Gamecube, I found Metroid Prime used for cheap and since I had little money back then, I added it to my Gamecube collection, which at that time only consisted of StarFox Adventures and Resident Evil.

There are loads of games that cater to these exact reasons why I love the genre. And then there’s Detana!! Twinbee.

The Wiiware service was pretty overlooked during the last generation. It’s not a big surprise, considering how well supported XBLA and PSN were at the time. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any interesting games available on Wiiware though. I already covered a couple of them here and LIT is another game for the service that shows just how creative some devs were on the tiny download service that could and deserves it’s place in the spotlight of this feature.

Revisiting Lollipop Chainsaw

As you all might know by now, I’ve been doing Let’s Play Videos for a month now. The first game I did was Lollipop Chainsaw, a game by Goichi Suda, that I enjoyed quite a lot back when it was released. I reviewed it for a local newspaper back then and spoke quite highly of it. But things have changed quite a bit since then.
