VVVVVV

12-29-2011

Terry Cavanagh's gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV is beloved for many reasons, and for a lot of fans, one of those reasons is Magnus "Souleye" Pålsson's kicking electronic soundtrack, PPPPPP. I know I have spent after...

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

05-17-2013

I remember where I was when Donkey Kong Country Returns was announced for the Wii. I was in the E3 press room during the Nintendo conference, and I shouted a few obscenities at the screen after the surprise trailer, garnering...

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

11-10-2012

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors' success in the West was enough to birth a sequel, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. That sequel ends on a cliffhanger and it doesn't look like it will be resolved any time soon. Ser...

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition

03-24-2011

Ladies and gentlemen, here's to Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, the first million-selling title on the 3DS! This doesn't come as much of a surprise, though. It's easily the best of the available launch titles and should ...

Bravely Default

01-28-2014

Bravely Default was one of my favorite games of this year (a lot of people don't believe it when I say that, but it came out in 2014 in the US), and I'm glad a sequel is already in the works. It appears as if said sequel will...

Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword

02-12-2012

It's always a pleasant surprise to go into a game with little to no expectations beforehand and come out of it with a completely positive opinion. Such was the case with the recent downloadable title Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword. The game wasn't even really on my radar, but after playing it, I realized I should be paying more attention to Nintendo's eShop library.

Fire Emblem: Awakening

01-30-2013

I've always wanted arms like a blacksmith. Not weaponry. I'm talking those sinewy anchor arms and mallet fists that would have you coughing up blood with a few quick pummels. Yet, they're delicate and expert enough to emboss...

Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move

05-08-2013

The first Mario vs. Donkey Kong was a very deliberate successor to Donkey Kong on Game Boy, which was in turn an evolution of the original arcade titles. Since then, focus has shifted away from puzzle-platforming towards pure...

Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale

08-14-2013

Children see the world from a lower vantage point than adults. They're closer to the smaller things, the things they're more able to control. They're also more able to stand back and see the bigger picture in ways that adults...

Tomodachi Life

06-06-2014

Ah, that smooth, buttery voice. Those luscious harmonies. That pixelated plaid shirt. That is our friend (and former Editor-in-Chief) Dale North. He has taken the default lyrics to the ballad "Maybe, Baby" in Tomodachi Life ...
