When I was young, I was a massive fan of monsters, dinosaurs, and other cool-looking spiky creatures; basically, anything that looked tough and cool. Though my enthusiasm for wicked dragons and weird creatures has waned a bit over the years, I felt a resurgence of childhood glee when I discovered the premise of Monster Hunter Stories. Your personalised character is a fledgling Rider, hailing from a small village where monsters aren’t hunted but instead befriended, trained and used to defend in combat. It’s a significant departure from other Monster Hunter titles, although you’ll recognis...

Today marks the 25th anniversary of a true 2D platforming classic - Sonic the Hedgehog 2! First released on this day in 1992 on the Sega Mega Drive, Sonic 2 was everything a sequel should be! Sonic was faster than ever, levels were bigger and better paced, you had a friend in the form of Miles "Tails" Prower, and Sonic could even transform into a golden version of himself, totally not inspired by a certain manga being published around this time. But where it still holds up is the soundtrack. It remains one of the best uses of the Mega Drive's hardware, and still sounds totally fresh even today. Have you played Sonic the Hedgehog 2?

Today marks a decade of saving the universe with the best companions, as the original Mass Effect released on this day in 2007! Originally published as an Xbox 360 exclusive, Mass Effect saw players embark on the first step of an epic trilogy, with the promise of choices and decisions carrying throughout and haunting Commander Shepard and their crew. It also introduced a revolutionary conversation system where instead of static sequences, dialogue between characters played out as full cutscenes, with a wheel of possible options that didn't break action. The amount of RPGs that have carried this system forward are quite numerous! Have you played Mass Effect? If so, Ashley or Kaiden?
