MARIO TENNIS Aces lands on the Nintendo Switch this Friday – and it's another winner for the console. Like its title suggests, it's a tennis game with all the super-charged fun associated with the plucky plumber's other spinoffs. There's a single-player campaign (known as Adventure mode) and a Tournament that nicks the Mushroom, Flower, and Star cups from Mario Kart and finds you facing off against computer-controlled foes, with 16 playable characters to choose from (including Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser and more). The two solo modes combined will turn you into a tennis pro the likes of Rafael Nadal – who took on Mario in the game's latest ad. You can then take the skills you've learned and use them in online and offline multiplayer matches. These include quick tiebreaks, ideal for pick-up-and-play battles, and a longer two-game-one-set option for purists. However, the online offering is limited to standard and simple play – the latter a pared-down version … [Read more...] about Mario Tennis Aces review – is this Mario’s best Nintendo Switch game yet?

Year-end lists are a wasted opportunity, a relic from the heyday of magazines and newspapers, a recap of the recommendations you missed because an issue got lost in the mail or consumed by the family dog. They tend to be a bit foggy (why did I like this game, again?) and incomplete (what came out in January?). Worse, they arrive when we’re too busy with the holidays to put the lists to their intended use. A list of the best games of the year is more useful, more thoughtful and more complete, we believe, if it accumulates all year long. So we’re making a change. Beginning today, the Polygon team will collect its game of the year list in real time. We will update the list as new games make the cut, with the latest entries up top, followed by the complete list organized by the time of each game’s addition. Fortnite Battle Royale begins our list, because we feel its recent seasons were the first great game of 2018. God of War God of War is a methodical reimagining of the … [Read more...] about Best games of 2018
FROM Drake to Stacey Solomon, it seems like everyone is playing it - and everyone else is talking about it. Gaming sensation Fortnite recently passed 45 million players, with creators Epic Games now making around £90m a month from their addictive shooter. In case you've missed it: Fortnite is a cartoony game with team-based co-operative missions as well as a wildly popular competitive multiplayer mode where you and 99 others fight to the death in an ever-shrinking arena. It took over half a decade and a team of hundreds to put Fortnite together, with the game first teased in 2011 - six years before its eventual release in 2017. And if you follow the Epic chain of command all the way to the top, you'll find some of the brightest minds in gaming, including eccentric CEO Tim Sweeney, 47, and his billionaire backer Ma Huateng, 46, - otherwise known as Pony - the richest man in China. You've probably never heard of either of them, but without Sweeney or Pony, the incredible story of … [Read more...] about How Fortnite’s founder went from a geeky kid making games in his mum’s house to create the biggest craze on the internet – and a £55m fortune

From blockbusters to indies, action roller-coasters to contemplative explorations, these are the best games available right now for Sony’s PlayStation 4, as selected by the voracious gamers of VG247. We’ll be checking back in with new games on the regular, as old favourites are retired and new challengers rise above the pack to win a place in our hearts. It’s been a while since we last updated this list, and 2017 has long since drawn to a close. During last year we got some new info on games that might one day make this list, like Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding and The Last of Us: Part 2. But for now, the most recent additions to our list are the mainstream smash-hit sensation Fortnite: Battle Royale and Capcom’s action-RPG epic Monster Hunter World. At the end of last year, Middle Earth: Shadow of War arrived to succeed the venerable old Shadow of Mordor on our list – building on the rock-solid … [Read more...] about The best PS4 games in 2018: every must-play on Sony’s flagship console
