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...

The Denpa Men 2: Beyond the Waves

08-13-2013

Denpa Men 1 and its sequel came and went on the 3DS, and many folks out there (our own Jonathan Holmes included) enjoyed them. But it appears as if they're still fairly niche sales wise, and a localization of the third e...

Project X Zone

07-09-2013

Project X Zone seems like something that probably shouldn't exist. It's a strategy role-playing game sporting an expansive all-star cast of prolific characters from the combined libraries of Capcom, Namco Bandai, and Sega. That sounds more like the stuff of fantasy than an actual game you can play. And yet, here it is.

Bugs vs. Tanks!

06-24-2013

The idea of shrinking objects and placing them into ridiculous situations is not new. But in the case of Comcept and Keiji Inafune's BUGS vs. TANKS!, it's somehow fitting to pit a tiny World War II German tank battalion again...

Mighty Switch Force! 2

06-15-2013

Although we already had confirmation that an HD version of Mighty Switch Force! 2 was coming to the Wii U, it's nice to have an estimated release date of October, which was confirmed recently by WayForward's Matt Bozon. ...

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Isabelle is one of the most adorable faces to come out of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, that's for sure. Have you ever wanted to yank her cute little face off and carry it around with you as a purse? Now you can, thanks to the O...

The Starship Damrey

"This game contains no tutorials or explanations. Part of the experience is to discover things for yourself." Thus reads the disclaimer when you fire up a new game of The Starship Damrey, Level-5's atmospheric sci-fi adventur...

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...

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...

Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo

05-04-2013

Sometimes, the simplest ideas work best.Where as most games try to throw over zealous plot devices your way, multiple control schemes, and graphics so detailed your eyes will bleed, some developers realize that less is more. ...

Witch and Hero

04-30-2013

Retro games have their place in gaming just as much as contemporary titles. A game's visual style has nothing to do with quality, on both sides of the spectrum -- anything has the potential to be a great experience. Of course...

LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins

04-23-2013

LEGO City Undercover for the Wii U, despite a heap of technical issues, brought a ton of charm to the platform. The fully voice acted experience was not without its camp and cheese factor, but ultimately it provided a fun ope...

Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger

04-19-2013

Dillon's Rolling Western and it's sequel, The Last Ranger, feel like cut bonus content from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Dillon, the series' titular protagonist, has nearly identical moves as Goron Link. The game's thr...

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Naruto Powerful Shippuden

Naruto fighting games tend to follow a specific formula. The console versions of the Shippuden series have been some of the best fighting games in the franchise, but the content hasn't really been super fresh, as it follows t...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

03-11-2013

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate came and went, and to some, it was a massive disappointment and stark departure for the Castlevania franchise. I found it to be a fairly serviceable 2D God of War game, despite th...

Kersploosh!

03-07-2013

This is going to sound really weird, but when I was younger, I had a dream about my perfect game. It was basically an open-world version of Mirror's Edge without gunplay. It was more of a whimsical experience like Jumping Fla...

Aero Porter

A videogame is a thing that asks you to do a series of tasks in order to meet arbitrary goals that were established by someone else. Videogames are things that most of us partake in for "fun," regardless of how difficult the ...
