A little 8-bit glory for old school fans

Some games were made to be given away and that's exactly how Mighty Gunvolt feels. Whether you buy Azure Striker Gunvolt or backed Mighty No.9, you get this nice little treat along as an added bonus, but that doesn't mean the game isn't good. Story: "The other time, the other place: Experiments on humans started by the massive media group...

Another Look at the Port of Retro's First DK Experience

Some games are so good they deserve 2 reviews to make sure everything is covered. This review does not override our first one, but merely complements it. Concept After successfully entrusting Retro with Metroid, Nintendo decided to do the same with Donkey Kong Country. However, unlike the approach with Metroid to make it 3D, Retro decided to...

During your races, you’ll be performing stunts off of ramps and daringly passing buoys. You’ll find yourself competing in several tracks within...

If only this were a clone of previous games

Blaz Blue: Clone Phantasma is a top down brawler style game available on the 3DS eShop.  To start off, the only similarity between this game and past BlazBlue games is the name and the characters.  If you were expecting this to be the classic 2D fighter then you will be sorely dissapointed.  Clone Phantasma is a sequel to a previous game in...

Shot Down in Flames

Steel Empire is a 2D bullet hell game for the 3DS eShop, the game has no physical release.  The game takes place in the late 19th century of a different world.  All of the ships in the game are very low-tech, including biplanes, zeppelins, and miscellaneous other planes.  The game has a very steam-punk aesthetic to it mostly because everything...

This Game is a BARREL of Fun!

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3DS is a 2.5D puzzle platformer that is a decent challenge even on the easier setting.  This game is basically a port of the Wii version only adding in a few new levels and items, so if you've played the Wii version there isn't much extra here to constitute buying a full game unless you really want to play on the go....

A great place for old fans and new to jump in

It has certainly been a long time since I've played a Pokémon game. The last game I had was Blue and I enjoyed it. So this makes me a veteran but also a newbie. Part of that has something to do with why I decided to buy the latest game. I had the opportunity to pick Squirtle once again for a starter, a very tough decision. So how is this new...

3DS Reviews: SteamWorld Dig and Why You Should Own It

8Digging it!
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Allow me to begin by stating that as both a video game journalist and as a gamer, I hold indie titles with a different regard than those AAA titles released by large publishers and developers. To me, the indie game is a much more intimate creation. It is both advantageous and disadvantageous that a smaller group of people work on the game. On the...

Monday, April 28, 2014
I had a blast playing Bit Boy!! ARCADE. It's fun and colorful and just about everything you'd want from an indie eShop game. It's just charming and strange enough to make you want more... Gameplay lends itself to part puzzler, part action, part collect-a-thon. You're movement is limited to four directions using A, B, X, Y buttons, pressing...

3DS Reviews: Always Nintendo Review: Retro City Rampage DX

Sunday, February 9, 2014
I was so excited when I got the chance to review Retro City Rampage DX. I absolutely LOVE this game, but a lot of people had some reservations about a 3DS port. Be rest assured, DX is ( In this reviewer's eyes anyways) the definitive version of this game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ViS0t7PigQ The entire game has been reworked and...
