Here are my Domestic Gamer review, join me to read about all sorts of games, from cooking, health, and family ones too.

Just Dance 3 Kinect adds full body dancing and bespoke choreography to what is already my favourite dance game. Sensibly shaped dancers and a great track list make this a great party game for all ages... read now

Nintendo's 3DS looks great in my bag but doesn't have many games I want to play yet. The 3D looks beautiful but its reduced viewing angle and incompatibility with horizontal book style gameplay is a real turn off... read now

Last Window's branching story and newsprint presentation got me involved in what ended up feeling more like a mystery novel than a DS game. I was surprised how much I enjoyed sitting down for a few hours to play something I could have easily written off... read now
