3DS 2

Severed — Review

You know what game is excellent?  Guacamelee, a Metroidvania game starring a Mexican wrestler that I played as a PS+ freebie a while back.  DrinkBox Studios is back with another colorful, Mexican […]

Azure Striker Gunvolt (3DS) — Review

After recently playing through the emotional roller coaster that is The Last Of Us and patiently waiting for Destiny to come out (T-minus three days at time of writing), I’ve been looking for something short to play.  When Comcept, the creators of Mighty No. 9 that I backed on Kickstarter, told me about Azure Striker Gunvolt, I decided to give it […]

Shovel Knight (3DS) — Review

Kids have it so easy these days.  What, with their auto-saves and regenerating health.  Back in my day, you had to write down your save codes and EARN your boss fight wins! Well, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Shovel Knight is here to bring back the glory days.  It’s made up of ingredients from some of gaming’s oldest franchises.  It’s […]

Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS) — Review

After playing such a sad, depressing (but still great) game in Child of Light, the happy, bright atmosphere of Kirby: Triple Deluxe was a welcome change.  But once that set in, I was able to see it for what it really was — a decent platformer with challenges spread few and far between.

Bravely Default (3DS) — Review

I was on a roll with ripping through games as 2014 started, but I was stopped dead by Bravely Default.  I had heard a little about it, heard the rumblings that it was as close to an old-school Final Fantasy as possible, so I decided to give it a try.  After 60+ hours of play, I am so, so glad […]

Project X Zone (3DS) — Review

Tactical RPGs for Nintendo handhelds tend to be big winners for me.  Final Fantasy Tactics, Advance Wars, Fire Emblem: Awakening — I don’t know what it is, but that genre in portable form just does it for me.  So, when I saw Project X Zone, I figured I would have another fun time on my hands.  Sadly, I was mistaken.  It’s nice […]

Pokemon Y — Post-Game Impressions

In case you missed it, I wrote two other articles detailing my initial reactions The latest iteration of Pokemon has been out almost a month now and it’s still got a firm hold of me.  I’ve detailed a lot of my feelings in my two previous articles (linked above).  First time players and those who haven’t played since early generations […]

Pokemon Y — Second Impressions

In case you missed it, here are my first impressions of the newest Pokemon generation. Second Impressions?  First Impressions Part 2?  In the least surprising upset ever, Pokemon Y has completely dominated my gaming time since it’s release last week.  I wrote about my first impressions (linked above) after three hours of play.  I’m up to 20 hours of playtime […]

Pokemon Y — First Impressions

As avid a gamer as I am, it’s probably surprising that Pokemon hasn’t always been on my radar.  I mean, Red is one of my earliest and fondest gaming experiences, as almost anyone in my generation can say.  I still have my original Red cartridge (we all know Red was better than Blue) and loved my Blastoise.  But, aside from […]
