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...

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...

On top of that include witty humor, intense strategic battles, and more guns than I can count and you have a game with high-replay value that serves the SteamWorld universe proud. SteamWorld Heist...

Charmed!

After launching in Japan way back in mid-2013, Yo-Kai Watch has finally launched stateside. Having previous experience playing some of the Japanese version, it is such a joy for me to finally play it in English. Virtually everything that made the game so popular with Japanese players has arrived fully intact. Developer Level-5 has crafted a...

The Yo-Kai Watch game is about hundreds of sometimes cute, sometimes spooky, and usually mischievous Yo-kai that inhabit our world. They cannot be seen by the human eye, but they are everywhere....
