Puyopuyo Tetris is exactly as it sounds, and I dig it

Sega is showing off its new puzzle game Puyopuyo Tetris here at their already super busy TGS 2013 booth. As a fan of both games, I gave this cross-up a spin on the 3DS. Puyopuyo Tetris is also coming to the Vita and PS3 as we...

Valiant Hearts is a game about the horrors of World War I

First, you need to watch this trailer for Valiant Hearts: The Great War before reading anything about it. This isn't your typical war game, as Valiant Hearts is going beyond the disconnected action tropes of "good versus evi...

Getting drawn into Scribblenauts Unmasked

I took a break from the crowded show floor of San Diego Comic-Con to relax for a bit with the latest build of 5th Cell's upcoming game, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. Scribblenauts has always been one of those games that's easy to pick up but hard to break away from, but the new superhero twist in this latest game gives us even more to get lost in.

Blow's enigmatic The Witness is the highlight of the PS4

Braid creator Jonathan Blow's The Witness is probably my most anticipated PS4 game -- almost definitely among games that are coming to the system this year. It, in its own way, stole the show at Sony's PlayStation 4 announcem...

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood shows promise

A spiritual successor to Max and the Magic Marker, Press Play's Max: The Curse of Brotherhood was about what I expected in terms of platforming. While the handling is a bit loose, I will say the magical marker itself co...

Solving your own murder in Murdered: Soul Suspect

"What if John McClain died in Die Hard and became a ghost?" That little idea is what gave birth to the whole concept of Murdered: Soul Suspect. "He wouldn't just give up, he wouldn't stop," senior design producer Eric Stude...

Mario & DK: Minis on the Move will twist your brain

If Nintendo has made one thing clear in the last few days, it's that they're dead serious about making eShop a real contender as the consumers preferred purchase outlet. To help them along the way, Nintendo is enlisting the h...

PAX: Tiny Brains will make a big splash

The PAX East booth for Tiny Brains is what lured my three friends and I near. Blue beakers filled with brains, the exhibitors wearing lab coats, and the promise of cooperative play was too much to resist. I am super happy th...

First look at Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon's multiplayer

Luigi's Mansion launched with the GameCube to little fanfare, oft forgotten by all but its most ardent fans. When news of a 3DS Luigi’s Mansion dropped out of the blue, it reinvigorated this base, but news since has be...

Preview: Fluidity: Spin Cycle

Fluidity released on WiiWare a couple of years ago and proved a surprising treat for a lot of Wii owners. Tony Ponce liked it a lot. Good news for Tony -- and for everyone else -- is that its 3DS sequel is coming to the eShop...

Preview: Professor Layton 3DS looks amazing

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask launched with the 3DS. In Japan, anyway. We’ve had to wait a bit longer. Over a year and a half. You know what they say: Rome wasn’t localized in a day. Thankfully, Miracle Ma...

Preview: Get ready for another block party with Crashmo

I was on the outside looking in during the Pushmo craze, still without a 3DS. While I could appreciate seeing Dtoiders recreate Jonathan Holmes’ face, I couldn’t explore its depths and intricacies -- its well-worn...

TGS: Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright join forces

Professor Layton and Ace Attorney are unique within the puzzle/adventure genre, but both share enough in common with each other to make for a perfect crossover game. Not since Marvel vs. Capcom and Kingdom Hearts have dedicat...
