Reviews: Splatoon Post-Update Video Review – How Much Has the Game Changed?

Splatoon Re-Review
Thursday, August 6, 2015

Does it warrant the 60 dollar price tag now? Let's find out!

Hey everyone, Haedox here with my Splatoon post-update video review. The first piece of business I want to address is that yes, I feel I was a bit too negative with my Splatoon launch review. I want to make it explicitly clear that I do not hate the game, I actually find it to be pretty fun. I won’t deny that it is a pretty solid game, running...

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

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 this pixelated adventure worth it?

From my understanding, the excitement around the newly released indie title, Adventures of Pip, has been pretty outstanding. What began on Kickstarter with a goal of 40 thousand dollars quickly became a huge success, exceeding that goal by about 26 thousand dollars. Sure it’s not Yooka-Laylee levels of success, but it’s still success...

An Ink-redible game!

Splatoon, Nintendo’s newest IP has stirred up plenty of hype over the last few months. Although avoiding the cringeworthy commercials on TV may be a hassle, the hype surrounding the upcoming title will definitely allow players to experience the game in its full glory when it’s released on May 29th. Well, was Splatoon worth our time? Let’s...

Haedox Splatoon Review
Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Haedox gives his opinion on this exciting game!

So… Splatoon. This was my number one most hyped game for this year and when I first downloaded the game, it felt… surreal. I had been anticipating this title for what seemed like years, and it was finally on my Wii U. And that’s why when I finished the single player campaign and played the multiplayer for 20 hours, I felt… really, really...

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...
