God of War was a weird one to play. The thing is, even though I’ve never played the original God of War before, I feel like I’ve played it a lot because of how many imitators there are out there. Going back and playing the game that launched a genre (as far as ‘God of War clone’ is a genre at least) was always going to be a bit intimidating.

Star Fox Adventures is a game that I first heard about in the Australian Official Nintendo Magazine (remember when we used to get our gaming news from magazines?) around the year 2000. Back then it was called Dinosaur Planet and it was going to be about these two anthropomorphic animals saving a world of dinosaurs in a big, Zelda-style adventure game. I was pretty excited because it was also going to be on the Nintendo 64, a console that I owned. But then the game was pushed back to be released on the GameCube and I parted ways with Nintendo so that I could buy an Xbox and play Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. Now, years later, I finally have the chance to play this game I missed out on so long ago and discover if all that youthful excitement was justified.

A few months back I decided to fill in this missing gap in my gaming education and picked up a cheap Playstation 2 console off eBay. I checked with some friends about what essential games I needed to play and the Jak and Daxter series went straight to the top of the list. I had one friend tell me that Jak II was one of his favourite games and another tell me that it was his favourite game “of all time”, so I was definitely looking forward to playing this. What I got when I put in the disc was…well, ‘mixed’ is the best way to put it.

There are many icons that come to mind when someone mentions the name “Nintendo“; Mario, Link, Donkey Kong and Samus, just to name a few. But there is another face, less cartoony but none-the-less enthusiastic, which has stood behind these icons and who is synonymous with the Nintendo name: Shigeru Miyamoto.

For over 30 years, Miyamoto has been the guiding hand of Nintendo and is responsible for many of Nintendo’s iconic series. But on Wednesday he announced he would be stepping down from his role as manager of Nintendo’s Entertainment Analysis. BUT FEAR NOT, he will continue on at Nintendo working on smaller projects.

The first thing that comes to mind when seeing Duael Invaders for the first time is how the heck am I suppose to control two space-ships at once? Approaching the game tentatively resulted in an early demise so I went in all guns blazing. Dead again. Duael Invaders is far more challenging than it first appears.
