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 […]

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy — Review

Remember about six or seven years ago when music/rhythm games were all the rage?  Guitar Hero, Rock Band — who didn’t have fun playing those?  Then, remember about three or four years ago when that genre died the quickest death?  My peripherals moved with me to my apartment two years ago and have been collecting dust ever since.  Square Enix […]

3DS 9

Fire Emblem: Awakening — Review

Strategy RPGs usually grab a hold of me and don’t let go.  One of my most played game has to be Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, where I poured in over 100 hours to beat all 300+ missions.  My 3DS has been mostly a dust collector since I got it, to my dismay.  Fire Emblem: Awakening helped me break that by […]
