Vampire Crystals

03-16-2013

The rare act of generosity aside, support for WiiWare has been reduced to almost nothing, leaving the platform to shuffle along until the earth swallows it up. How fitting then that one of its few releases in recent months wo...

Kirby's Dream Collection

09-19-2012

My love of Kirby is known far and wide. While the games themselves are incredibly simple, the sheer charm of the titular hero and his colorful world makes for endearing, unforgettable adventures. Kirby has also seen some of t...

Madden 13

08-25-2012

It looks like my bird magic worked, as the Baltimore Ravens overtook the San Francisco 49ers last night in a huge Super Bowl victory, bringing the franchise up to two championship wins. Of course, Madden 13 already knew this...

The Last Story's journey to North America was certainly a long one, but it looks like this tale has a happy ending. XSEED has announced that the celebrated Mistwalker RPG is now the most successful title in their eight-year h...

Just a couple months ago, GameStop was selling copies of Xenoblade for upwards of $90. The retailer has exclusive rights to the title, you'll remember. This monopoly and price hike raised a number of issues, especially when i...

Mario Party 9

"Another Mario Party? Good grief. Is there really any way this game could give us something we haven't already gotten from the Mario Party series? Is there going to be any reason to buy this game over the seven other Mar...

Rhythm Heaven Fever

02-13-2012

What does it take for a game to be universally enjoyable? That's the question most game developers would love to be able to answer, but it's easier said than done. My guess is that it comes down to exploiting the medium for w...

Zombii Attack

02-13-2012

When you go to the store and buy a pet rock, a fake piece of poo, or a movie called L3GiT-Sh*theads The Movie, you shouldn't go home with your purchase expecting much fun upon your arrival. That's the kind of game Zombii Atta...

Fortune Street

01-11-2012

At first glance, Fortune Street may look like another Mario-themed, board game-structured mini-game collection. It's not. Anyone who picks this game up expecting another light, mindless, motion-controlled mini-game romp like ...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony

This past Friday night, I had the distinct pleasure of attending The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony at the beautiful Pantages Theater in Hollywood. To say I was looking forward to it is a vast understatement. I am ...

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

10-23-2011

According to our own Jim Sterling, Kirby's Return to Dream Land belongs right up there among New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Donkey Kong Country Returns in the upper echelon of modern-day multi-player platformers. That's p...

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

10-17-2011

We are so used to waiting insufferably long periods of time for Japanese games to be localized and brought out West that we often imagine Japan as this floating island of privilege and good fortune. How easily do we forget th...

Conduit 2

I've spent the past week playing through the short, but inevitably sweet single player campaign of the sequel to one of the most talked about games last year. I then spent some time playing through its new multiplayer modes a...

Fluidity

12-19-2010

Long-in-development Explodemon! was originally a title for both WiiWare and PSN. Along the way, it became a PSN-exclusive, bringing a frown to many a face. Surprise, surprise -- developer Curve Studios popped into PAX a few s...
