The debate about if games should qualify as art has raged on for a good while and is likely to continue for some time. Recently I've been giving the question some thought and because GameGrep is kind enough to afford me a platform on which to do so, I've decided to share my musings with all of you.

In my personal opinion the whole debate about whether or not games should qualify as art is a big bunch of malarky. Because to ask that question implies A. That every book ever written, movie ev...

"With this game Masuda says that the team is currently focussed on the adventure elements. Here’s what he had to say.

“In terms of the customization of the trainer, that was really kind of a special thing for the Kalos region, which featured this kind of motif of France and really focused on this beauty and fashion aspect, which is why it was a prominent feature in that game. For this game, we’re focusing on adventuring elements, so we don’t have the actual free customization of the trainer..."

There's obviously a lot of content packed into this title. While the food preparation hasn't changed too much, the new features make this a worthy purchase. The ability to compete against other players is major selling point alone. The more lenient Mama makes this a great starter game for those who are new to the series.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was playable on the 3DS at this years EGX in London. With a gunlance in hand, what does Dom think of this newest instalment to the series?

"The top 10 remained largely unchanged, with only the PS4 version of Advanced Warfare and the X1 version of The Elder Scrolls Online trading places. An increase of 4,609 resulted in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for the PlayStation 4 taking the number 6 spot"

There's not much of a story in Tomodachi Life, other than building up an island of Miis and keeping them happy by feeding, clothing and entertaining them. You can create Miis in the game or import them from your Mii plaza.

The Mega Evolution mystery keeps brewing as Rayquaza is the latest Legendary Pokémon to reach mega evolution. The one hailing from the Hoenn region is able to take new form in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby to increase devestation to opponents because being a flying dragon sometimes isn't enough.

"It's been a bumpy road as far as the relationship between Nintendo and the Super Smash Bros fanbase is concerned, but we're finally through the roughest patch and seem to be driving on smooth pavement now. Nintendo has caught my fascination with their recent approach, and as we near the release of the newest game in the franchise, I'm sitting down to analyze it once again.

The low point of the relationship is certainly when Nintendo tried to pull Super Smash Bros Melee from EVO 2013. For a..."
