M2 sticks close to its guns

I’d attempted Gunstar Heroes twice before in my life, both times not much more than for about ten minutes, and that’s not really enough time to get a good feel for a game heralded as one of, if not the, best Sega Genesis game out there. Something about the aesthetic turned me off before I could give the game a fair shake, and, yes, I know...

Don't buy this game under any circumstances

So I woke up this morning and I was all ready to work on the Enter the Dragonfly review, but then I thought to myself, “Hey, I just got paid yesterday so let’s see if the 3DS got any new releases that look interesting”. As I opened the Nintendo eShop, I saw a peculiar game sitting right in between such classics like Brave Tank Hero and...

The knight does right by me

Long associated with the antiquated charms of classic role-playing games, Etrian Odyssey has always taken pride in its herculean difficulty, and people are surprisingly okay with this. Never mind the rigid grid-like movement or the awkward first-person exploration, and never mind that if the games were any harder they might be classified as...

Do you have the patience?

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is a game that, if you have the patience to tolerate a rather big flaw, it will most likely grow on you. The story is interesting despite its cliché beginning (boy is saved from strange monsters by amnesiac girl). The protagonist, Luchs, is a young innkeeper who, because of a promise to his departed father,...

Dr. Mario Miracle Cure Review
Friday, June 12, 2015

Miracle or disaster?

Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure practically came out of nowhere. I was not expecting another title in the series so soon as it seemed like Dr. Luigi had just released a couple months ago. And to be honest, I had my fill of Dr. Mario after playing that game and the mini game in NES Remix. But I figured I would check it out because who knows? Maybe this...

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...

Feeling a little Bloo

Before Nintendo announced their plans of entering into the mobile games business, every developer on the App Store was trying to make a retro Mario-styled game to make a quick buck. They often had a distinguishable lack of quality compared to their official counterparts. Bloo Kid 2, originally on the App Store and now on 3DS, seems like it could...

Get to the chopper!!

Another month, another SEGA 3D Classic to enjoy. May brings the 1987 rail-shooter Thunder Blade to 3DS, which will soon be followed by Streets of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2, but now is the time for Thunder Blade to have its long-awaited day in the sun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwgDWQl17BI While a new IP at the time,...

Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains Review

A titan-sized fail?

First and foremost, I would like to thank Atlus for providing me a free review copy of Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains. Honestly, if the game were not graciously given to me, I don’t think I would have reviewed. When I first heard of the title’s release in Japan and the negative reviews that followed, I immediately lost all interest in the...

What additions has Capcom made to this amazing series!?

"Just a quick side note here, but I was recording some footage for this today and I was planning on only playing for like an hour or so. But I got so into Monster Hunter I couldn't stop playing. So when I finished the recording, I found out I had been playing for 5 hours. This alone should speak to how amazing and addicting this game is....
