You know, the game that guy from Smash Bros is from!

Once upon a time, a blue haired young man was added to some fighting game you might have heard of called Super Smash Brothers Brawl who went by the name of Ike. I grew to enjoy playing as Ike in that game. I thought he was pretty powerful, and being the naive kid I was, thought he was the coolest thing ever. Likewise, when I went into a GameStop...

Takamaru? In His Own Game? Really?

Nazo no Murasame Jō languished as Japan-only Famicom game for years, teasing westerners with its Edo-period-meets-Zelda looks and general unavailability. Sure, Nintendo's winked at the title in the past with little references in Pikmin 2, collectibles in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Takamaru's mini-game appearance in Nintendo Land, but the...

Warting off Bowser & The Gang

Warting off Bowser & The Gang When people talk Mario, the thoroughbreds are always mentioned—Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, usually both Galaxy titles, but rarely does Super Mario Bros. 2 spring to mind. Savvy readers might recall that Mario’s odd NES sequel isn’t even a Mario title at all, but a heavily re-skinned Yume...

Released on June 10th, 2010 in Japan and later localized to Europe, Xenoblade Chronicles began to gather a following who called it a refreshing look at the now stale Japanese RPG genre. After an effort by fans, led primarily by the Operation Rainfall campaign to have a set of Japanese games localized to North America, Xenoblade came to North...

A Paper Perfect RPG for the N64?

One of the great thing about Club Nintendo is that if you are going to buy Nintendo games, you can earn a few extra ones at no additional cost. This month, Paper Mario was one of those titles for 250 coins and I was super excited to finally be able to play it through. So how does it stand more than 10 years after it's release? (Note: Paper Mario...

The perfect mix between Ruby and Sapphire

With Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on their way, it only makes sense to look back at the games they are deriving from. But instead of looking at the two games individually, why not look at the third game in the collection, Pokémon Emerald?Released in 2005, two years after the release of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, the game is a...
