3DS Reviews: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker Review (3DS)

9Devilishly Good
Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Making spin-offs of beloved series tends to be a risky business. And while some spin-offs manage to be unique and enjoyable while retaining the core elements that make the original series work (e.g. Pokémon Pinball, Pokémon Ranger), there are plenty that fail to be good games, both in their own right or as a representation of the series they...

3DS Reviews: Etrian Mystery Dungeon Review (Nintendo 3DS)

Monday, April 6, 2015
I haven't picked up a Mystery Dungeon game since the first Pokémon Mystery Dungeon for DS, so it's admittedly been a while. Oof, like 9 years, even. Yeesh. Truth be told, I was only interested in it for the Pokémon personality quiz, and I so totally didn't fabricate that just to get Charmander despite the game insisting that, alas, I am...

3DS Reviews: KAMI 紙 Review (3DS eShop)

Sunday, February 8, 2015
CIRCLE Entertainment continues its recent streak of mobile-to-handheld conversions with State of Play's gorgeous paper-centric puzzler KAMI. Without skipping a beat, this new 3DS port proves that some experiences just get better and better as they unfold. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFXp2cc6LKU The object is quite simple: turn colored...

3DS Reviews: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Review (3DS eShop)

Majora's Mask 3D Review
Thursday, February 5, 2015
Let me start out by saying that this is my first experience with Majora's Mask and I never played it on the N64 as a kid. This should allow me to make this review as unbiased as possible and give it a fair score for what it is. Majora's Mask is hailed as one of the best if not the best Legend of Zelda games of all time. There are some who would...

3DS Reviews: Gunman Clive 2 Review (3DS eShop)

Gunman Clive 2 Review
9A Blast
Friday, January 30, 2015
Every game I get to review, I want it to be good. Some developers are such stand-up people that I really hope their game is great when I get around to reviewing it. Gunman Clive 2 fits this bill. The game is even more impressive when you consider it was done by one man with the exception of testing, translation, and music. This guy definitely...

3DS Reviews: Citizens of Earth Review (3DS eShop)

8.5Politically Correct
Tuesday, January 20, 2015
You'd be hard pressed to find a better success story than Eden Industries' Citizens of Earth. Subjected to the dreary doom cloud of impending Kickstarter failure back in 2013, a stalwart Atlus stepped in and saved the day by assuming the game's publishing duties. Thank goodness. Had they not, you wouldn't be able to experience the best Earthbound...

3DS Reviews: League of Heroes Review (3DS eShop)

7.5Pay $5 to Play
Thursday, January 8, 2015
Some games are meant to be played with all your focus and concentration by getting you involved and task you with many challenges. When you pick up one of these games, you focus solely on that. League of Heroes is not one of those games but instead a port of a Free To Play title you can find on the App store or Google Play, however, once you...

3DS Reviews: Fairune Review (3DS eShop)

8So Fetch
Thursday, December 18, 2014
Fetch quests don't exactly have a sparkling reputation. If you were to check a thesaurus for the word 'entertaining,' you'd also find antonyms like 'boring' and 'dull' before eventually stumbling upon 'fetch quest' right next to 'snoozefest.' Regardless, fetch quests are everywhere because snickering game designers love keeping players and...

3DS Reviews: Xeodrifter Review (3DS eShop)

7.5Astronaut Bad
Monday, December 15, 2014
You’d be hard pressed to find another game as metroidy as Xeodrifter. Renegade Kid took all the best bits you’d expect of that series—the exploration, the power-ups, the boss battles—and boiled them down to their very essence. Unsurprisingly, their end product is arguably the most streamlined Metroid experience out there, and that’s...
