Another year, another season, another numbered FIFA game is on the horizon. But Wait! This one...there is something special about this one. EA Sport's FIFA series has been an etched stable in gaming footy fans' library since 1993, but now this year's FIFA 23 will be the last game released under the familiar moniker. But, before it becomes EA Sports FC, FIFA has one more go at the top prize. Does it take it home? Or bitterly loses out in the penalty shoot-out? Here's the review roundup:
We were hit with both a new Nintendo Direct and Playstation State of Play, but who had the better presentation? We quickly examined both and filed a report.
Disney, Ubisoft and Game Informer unleashed a bevy of gaming and animation news over the weekend. We try to keep and bring you all details on most of what was announced. Including new God of War Ragnorak gameplay and info on Inside out 2.
In the early 2000s, I was the lone Nintendo gamer among my peers, and boy, oh boy, was it difficult. I had to deal with constant teasing about how my little purple lunch box was for kids as they also spew at nauseam about how manly their Xbox and PS2 were due to being home to Halo and Resistance. I was losing face, so I prayed to the Nintendo gods for a major first-party shooter so I could also boast about how 'manly' my console was.

Here's the review roundup:

This gaming journey has been incredible, far beyond my wildest imagination. Yet....there was still room for me to be blown away. I for one never believed I would ever see a large-scale, Jamaican-developed game about Jamaica, ever (AND I MEAN EVER!) in my lifetime. In Step Willow Tree Studios and their very ambitious indie title, Street Boy.
'Live to Fight...Fight to Live'. When I first heard that saying in the recent Xenoblade Chronicles 3 trailer, it did two things, it sent a chill down my spine as well as signaling to me just how much more of a darker lore Monolith and Nintendo are aiming for in this iteration. That is not to say the story of Xenoblade 2 was all rainbows and ponies, but it's clear from the jump, Xenoblade 3 is here to take you on a much darker adventure. But will it be a joyful one? Here's what the critics had to say:
