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: Lost Marbles

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...

TGS: Professor Layton's iOS debut isn't what you'd expect

The idea of developers dedicating resources to mobile versions of franchises is something I’ve long been against, but have slowly been warming up to. So, they might as well make something good. Layton Brothers: Myster...

gamescom: Angry Birds Trilogy looks gorgeous on consoles

So I like Angry Birds. Yeah, I said it haters. It's a fun physics based puzzle game, and a great time waster when I'm on the go. I can never look at the mobile game the same again though thanks to what I played of Angry Birds...

E3: Motley Blocks, a puzzle game that I love to hate

There are a handful of mobile games that I will always go back to. Fruit Ninja, Jetpack Joyride, Angry Birds Space -- basically puzzle games. It's not because I love them, but rather that I love to hate them. They're simple l...

Smart As... is the game Brain Age should have evolved into, except it’s way prettier because it’s on the Vita.
