A bit late, but does that stop it from being great?

Before we get into the review, I wanted to say something that doesn't factor into the review score, but I felt should be mentioned.  I think Super Mario Maker is the wrong game to come out nearly 3 years into the Wii U's lifespan.  This is the kind of game that should have been a launch title, demonstrating excellent Gamepad usage while...

Runbow? More like Jogbow!

Chances are if you have been following the Nintendo indie scene, you have most likely heard of Runbow. Personally, I tried out the demo during E3 and had a blast with it. Needless to say, I was kind of excited to get my hands on it. Not to mention, the game was boasting a variety of characters from other indie titles so of course I was looking...

Our friend Jason reviews this classic PS2 port

The most important thing to preface this entire review with is the fact that this is a Playstation 2 game that's been remastered. It comes from an older time. So, does Nordic Games' remaster come as a pleasant surprise or is it really still just an old, aged game with a shinier coat of paint on...

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...

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 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...

Kirb your enthusiasm

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a 2D platformer strictly speaking, but not really in a traditional sense. Instead of jumping, the player guides a rolling Kirby via rainbow-laced ropes created by a quick flick of the Wii U stylus. As such, you influence the pink puffball's path rather than having direct control, so while there's no jumping per se,...

Is it a silly trick or a treat?

Costume Quest 2 is Double Fine's take on games like Earthbound and Paper Mario, but wrapped up in a tiny, easy to consume form. Sadly, not all good things come in small packages. While there are traces of a enjoyable RPG there, this fun-sized bar of a game leaves you wishing you had a full-featured RPG instead. While Costume Quest 2 literally...
