Around 2004-2005, my parents split up. I won't go into details, but the result of it was my dad and I moving to Canberra, leaving both my mum and Adelaide behind. It never really hit me that hard, strangely enough. My whole life was turned on it's head, and I just shrugged, and kind of … Continue reading The Legend of Zelda – Twilight Princess
The Hoenn remakes are the first remakes where I had no nostalgic connection to the original games. The Advance era, or Gen 3, went by completely under my radar, where I played very few Nintendo games at all. So as much as I was seeing all the hype around Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, I … Continue reading Pokemon: Alpha Sapphire and the future of Pokemon
It's funny that one of my highly anticipated is a rerelease of one of my very first video games. I'll bitch and moan about all the HD rereleases of games less than 10, even 5, years ago. But when Nintendo remake or release an old school title, I'll not just allow it, I'll hyperventilate about … Continue reading Pokemon: Blue Version

I've learned how to be more critical of games in my own way, and have found my own taste in what I enjoy in … Continue reading Game-a-Week #52 – Undertale
Second to last week! I've been getting a fair few people asking me to play Yo-kai Watch, to see what I think before jumping in themselves. And don't get me wrong, I'm actually really flattered you guys care about my opinion! I guess it was just a sudden realisation of how far Stew Review has … Continue reading Game-a-Week #51 – Yo-kai Watch
So I may have bought a few too many 3DS games last week... So I put it to you guys on Facebook to help me pick which one to play first. And, as you've already guessed, Mario & Luigi are the winners! I've already played a bit of the intro, and this game is speeding … Continue reading Game-a-Week #50 – Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros.
