Haedox gives his opinion on this exciting game!

So… Splatoon. This was my number one most hyped game for this year and when I first downloaded the game, it felt… surreal. I had been anticipating this title for what seemed like years, and it was finally on my Wii U.

Is it worth it?

When Puzzle and Dragons Z and Puzzle and Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition was first announced, I was honestly not too excited. There was nothing about the game that appealed to me at all. It looked like another generic puzzler just with a Mario skin to help sell the title. To me, it served as filler content in the Nintendo Direct it was...

How bad you say?

As much as I wanted it to do well, Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. isn't off to the greatest start in Japan. How bad you say? Well, Media Create didn't include the game in its listings meaning that the game sold less than 2,000 units and according to Famitsu, the game only managed to push 1,835 copies this week. Ouch. There's always a risk of...
