Sayonara Wild Hearts Review

Sayonara Wild Hearts is a stylish rhythm action game in the same vein as Rez and Child of Eden. With so few games of this ilk in existence, it’s good to see others exploring what’s possible within this space. But is this latest take on the genre a bop or a flop? Continue reading

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and its Gray-Market for Nook Miles Tickets

Animal Crossing: New Horizons does not have in-game microtransactions. Even so, that has not stopped some players from buying in-game items with real money. In particular, Nook Miles Tickets are a hot commodity, with players buying tickets in the hundreds – or thousands – for just a few real-life dollars.

Favourite Songs from Sayonara Wild Hearts Soundtrack

Sayonara Wild Hearts is self-described as a “pop album video game“. As you race down windy streets in your motorcycle and fly through an assortment of ethereal spaces, all of the action is driven by an awesome electro pop soundtrack.
