The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Drops the Moon, then the Ball

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

I’m probably going to encounter some overpaid assassins for saying this, but after playing a fair chunk of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, I’m not entirely sold on it. It’s not bad, but it definitely falls in the shadow of its predecessor. I loved The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but this one […]

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, A No Life New Life

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Let the record show that I’ve played the original Animal Crossing for the Gamecube and Wild World for the DS. I skipped out on City Life because I heard it really wasn’t all that good of an expansion on the series. Animal Crossing: New Leaf, however, is everything the old games were and plenty more. […]

Fire Emblem: Awakening Will Bring Out the Tactician in YOU

Fire Emblem: Awakening

Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS. Holy SHIT this game is good. It’s good enough to make me start this review off with a vague and generic adjective. Now, I’ve only played one other Fire Emblem game, so you veterans out there may already be scoffing at me and wondering what I could possibly tell […]

Trace Memory: Like Myst, but Cuter

Trace Memory

I really like Trace Memory. Something about video game novels just does it for me. It gets me immersed, holds my attention, keeps me empathically connected to characters, and all that other good stuff. A puzzle game in any perspective, Trace Memory isn’t terribly difficult, nor is it meant to be. A curious, explorative demeanor […]

Custom Robo Arena: A Step in the Wrong Direction

Custom Robo Arena

Custom Robo needs a MAJOR revitalization, and Custom Robo Arena was not the way to go. Don’t assume that I mean the latter is a poor game, not in the least. It’s just not as good as the Gamecube version. While it attempts to offer a wider variety of customizable features with dioramas and Robo […]

WarioWare Touched, Stylus Abuse

WarioWare Touched

WarioWare Touched is one of those games that’s nearly impossible to critically review. The reason being? It’s not so much a game as it is a MASSIVE collection of five second or less microgames. You might say, “But review-guru! There’s always plot to be had, right?” Eh… I suppose. If there is any, it’s about […]

Kirby Superstar Ultra, Win ALL the Games!

Kirby: Superstar Ultra

Kirby Superstar Ultra takes the dominion of Kirby handheld games in a slightly different direction. Coupled with a pleasant upgrade to the aesthetics, players will notice that instead of one large, consolidated chain of levels and bosses, this one is broken up into several macro-mini-games. As is typical of all Kirby games, some abilities are […]

N64 Onslaught Part II, Yoshi’s Story

Yoshi's Story

The onslaught continues, this time with another beloved Nintendo classic! Spectacular 2.5D platformer Yoshi’s Story, a sweet and endearing tale with silly enemies, environments, and of course, playable loveable dinosaurs! With… long tongues that eat a whole lot of everything. Including people. Er, anyway, on with the whole once upon a time business. Yoshi’s Island […]

N64 Onslaught Part I, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

N64 review week begins with one of my very favorite childhood video games, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards! Outside of the Smash Bros. franchise, this is probably one of the only times you’ll see Kirby in 3D. Righteous, right? That’s hardly the point, because 3D or not, Crystal Shards is probably the most complex, deep, […]

Chomps ‘n’ Thwomps ‘n’ Bullet Bills, Mario Party 5

Mario Party 5

Mario Party 5 is so goddamned fun. Fun for you, fun for me, for all your friends, for your family. Hell, if Mario himself came to your house and played, he’d love it too. It’s a Gamecube game, which means awesome splitscreen multiplayer instead of annoying bad-natured online gaming that’s so common these days. No, […]
