[Game Review] Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call (3DS)

In 3DS, Nintendo, Reviews by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

As a long time fan of the Final Fantasy series and music rhythm games, Square Enix’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call was one of my most anticipated games for the year after I had demoed it at E3. While not exactly a completely different game than the first Theatrhythm, Curtain Call adds all the DLC that was for the first …

[Game Review] UnEpic (PC)

In PC, Reviews, Wii-U by Davis FanLeave a Comment

The problem with indie games right now is that just about every developer feels that they can improve a formula or recreate some nostalgic genre for players. Sadly, that isn’t usually true. Just once in a while though, as with non-indie games, some titles stand out among the rest and fulfill their missions. UnEpic, an indie title created by Spain’s …

[Game Review] One Piece: Unlimited World Red (Vita)

In PS3, Reviews, Vita, Wii-U by Davis FanLeave a Comment

As I’ve gotten older, I found myself straying farther and farther from anime. Though I still love me some Gundam, I haven’t even touched the newer popular series like Attack on Titans and Kill la Kill until I was bored enough to take the plunge on Netflix. Oddly enough, I just never got into One Piece. At one point I’m …

[Game Review] Shovel Knight (Wii U)

In Reviews, Wii-U by Dustin Leon1 Comment

We are currently in an age where 8 and 16 bit games are becoming popular again. Countless games attempt to capture our nostalgia for 80’s and early 90’s platforming games and often fail, but Shovel Knight brings all those classic elements into a fantastic package. Through a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign,  Yacht Club Games developed and published an heavily inspired …

Nintendo’s latest iteration of Mario Kart does the same thing it has been doing for the past 20 years and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Nintendo refined the series through each game, perfecting gameplay and overall experience, it definitely shows in the latest title of the series, Mario Kart 8. One of the main reasons someone would purchase a …

[E3 2014] Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Preview

In 3DS, Previews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

I am always ready for a new Harvest Moon, and when we dropped by the Natsume booth (complete with its own gigantic cow), I was especially pleased to see The Lost Valley at its very own demo station. I was even more pleased to find some great changes coming to this cute farming simulator. Probably the biggest change from previous …

[E3 2014] First Nintendo Sponsored Smash Tourney Takes Place At E3

In eSports, News, Nintendo, Uncategorized, Wii-U by Ian WilliamsLeave a Comment

For the longest time, the development team behind Smash Bros was not happy that people were playing the game competitively. Project M, a version of Super Smash Bros Brawl ,was the main vessel for competitive Smash, with faster gameplay and more characters. In their eyes, the devs saw Smash purely as a party game, and the slower pace of Brawl …

[E3 2014] Super Smash Bros for 3DS Preview

In 3DS, Previews by Kevin Kartanata1 Comment

There was a time where the handheld version of a console game would be a guaranteed bust. How could anyone expect that kind of power out of a Gameboy? I sure didn’t, and that’s why I avoided them like the plague. Aside from the majority of licensed cash-ins, we’ve moved on from that, thanks to the power of advancing technology. …

[E3 2014] Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Preview

In Nintendo, Previews, Wii-U by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

One of the most anticipated games of this years E3 definitely has to be Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. I will admit that prior to playing it, I wasn’t particularly hyped for the title primarily due to the fact that I don’t own a Wii U, nor did I plan on owning one in the near foreseeable future. …
