They mark a fitting finale to the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon franchise, saving the veritable best for last with plenty of new Pokemon, a new region, and a vast array of smart updates and changes to the series formula. For series developer...

Alola to New Beginnings

There's a new season of the Pokemon anime out now. Maybe you've heard of it? The Sun & Moon arc is finally here, and it's gained more notoriety for a radical redesign of the series' protagonist Ash Ketchum than anything else. Weeks before its November premier in Japan (and a preview already aired in the UK), many fans were writing the show's...

Gotta go back in time!

Less than a year after the Yo-Kai Watch invasion from Japan first hit the west, Yo-Kai Watch 2 arrives to make its case. It's a me-too sequel that shares much in common with the first game, and yet Yo-Kai Watch 2 has enough content to garner new fans and impress the old ones. It not only adds the requisite new Yo-Kai to collect, there are new...

Does it help to catch 'em all?

After much delay, the Pokemon Go Plus accessory is finally out in the wild. I was fortunate enough to procure one as soon as humanly possible, under the pretenses of the promised utility the Go Plus provides to Pokemon Go. This small gadget does everything that was promised to do and does more that wasn't. But is the Pokemon Go Plus a worthy...

Brick by Brick

  It took me only two minutes to master Brick Race, the latest discount game from eShop developer/publisher RCMADIAX with its utterly simple mechanics. Brick Race serves as a functional time waster, but I wouldn't really touch it again. The gist of the game is guiding a simple racing car forever upwards, dodging other cars to shoot for...

Draw Along with Mickey

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, the Art Academy series has a long history on Nintendo platforms, going back to 2009 and the DS. Since then, it's seen a few general releases across 3DS and Wii U, and a couple of entries based on licensed properties. We've seen a game with Pokemon at the helm, and now we come to Disney Art Academy, featuring a...

The super tuff pink puff returns

Kirby’s newest adventure, Kirby: Planet Robobot, is Kirby’s return to platforming from the last spin-off title, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. HAL Laboratory did very well at bringing Kirby back to his platforming roots that the Kirby fans know and love. They also added a few new additions and boy, those new additions make this title a must play...

Amiibo Puzzle Quest

Mario Vs. Donkey Kong, er, Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge is the latest in a long line of puzzle platformers developed by Nintendo Software & Technology.  While it may look similar to the previous games in the Mario Vs. Donkey Kong (M v DK) series, don't be fooled. This time, the hook is amiibo connectivity. You're not just...

How much of an evolution is this iteration? Let's find out!

Fire emblem Fates: Birthright is a turn based strategy game for the 3DS, and the fourteenth game in its series. It follows the war between two kingdoms, with the player being able to decide if they want to join one side, the other or neither depending on the game. As a long time Fire Emblem fan, I was pretty happy to see the result of this game...

Hungry like the Wolf

When Link first transformed into a wolf in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, it made for a bold statement, revealing a rougher and grittier Zelda adventure. That was a response to the backlash that the prior entry, The Wind Waker, suffered for being too round and cute. In our current era of Zelda re-releases and remasters. So Twilight...
