Nice to see you’ve finally arrived!

Welcome to TheLateGamer.com. The place where it’s fine to be late on playing last year’s
triple-A games, and waiting until next year to catch up on today’s releases.

Top 5 Bad Guys From Video Games

Looking back at games I’ve completed to come up with this list, I do find that most invdividual bad guys are usually nothing but forgettable place holders, only an obstacle to overcome as a boss at the end of the game, whilst throughout the rest of the game, they’re nowhere to be seen, not really bring anything additional to the experience. Only are there a few examples that counter this stereotype, of enemies that drag the story by its hair, forcing you to look at the cutscene as the voice actors put on some of the best performances of their life.

So The Controller I Use Is…

And now onto a fascinating topic I’m sure everyone is dying to know, what is my favourite controller? For those that couldn’t care, than to cut this short, it’s currently the PS4 controller, preferably in black, but if you really want to know why, than read on.
As like anyone else, I’ve used a vast range of controllers over 20 years of playing games, and each generation of console has always brought a new iteration of comfort in our handheld devices that cater more and more to the ergonomics of our hands and many hours long playstyles whilst integrating bold, new features to enhance our interactions with games.

Late Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros Review

Rejoice, for Paper Mario has been saved. Flying out of the ashes that was Sticker Stars, the series has been merged with the Mario & Luigi team, producing a game with the best of both worlds. Even Mario & Luigi benefit, as the issues players had in Dream Team, have been ‘papered’ over.

Late Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Review

Essentially it’s Mario Kart 7 re-skinned with Sega characters, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t bring some fresh ideas to the race track and it’s certainly just as fun. Don’t be blinded by the visuals, thinking this game is for kids, as its difficulty and “grown-up” rage induced fits speak otherwise.

Late Pokémon X (& Y) Review

This is it. Finally, a fully fledged 3D Pokémon rpg that I’ve been waiting for since childhood – that was 20 years ago! Now all I’ve got to do is just catch up on 20 years of Pokem… 850 fucking Pokémon species! I’d rather pick up a book and learn about the real animal kingdom!

Late Assassins Creed Unity Review

Don’t do it. Do not do this to yourself. Don’t waste your time on this absolute piece of shit, no longer having any relevance in the overall AC universe since they killed Desmond off. It’s nothing but 80 hours of collectables and a story that makes you want to blow your brains out.

Late Beyond Good And Evil Review

In anticipation for Beyond Good And Evil 2, which isn’t slated for release until 2019, I wanted to get an idea of what the game universe was about by booting up the original game that started a fan cult. It certainly does have a charm to it that still shines even 13 years after release.

Late Pony Island Review

I don’t feel that my brain has enough of those neurons needed to comprehend the inner meaning of this ominous game. At times I thought I had genuinely been hacked, at times I made mistakes I knew I was going to regret, the rest of the time I didn’t think I was going to escape the 9 circles of HELL.

Late Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective Review

What a fantastic gem for the original DS console. This is something I’ve been wanting to play for a very long time, having tried the demo a while back. I love the DS for allowing such innovative games in a market that’s become stale with mainstream genres, scared to try something a little different.

Late Rise Of The Tomb Raider Review

This did feel more of an expansion pack to Tomb Raider rather than stand on it’s own two feet, not really introducing any new game mechanics, with simplistic puzzles and enemies as well as a story that was both predictable and lackluster, but those graphics still shone through.
