Monster Tale

03-29-2015

Monster Tale was a great little metroidvania on the original DS. Despite its cartoony look, it featured engaging combat that focused on juggle combos. It felt almost like a 2D version of the Batman: Arkham Asylum combat, wher...

Final Fantasy III

05-09-2014

I mean, it's cool that they got Final Fantasy III to PC after it released on Android early this year. It just feels weird to see it up there at $16, more expensive than, say, Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII.  Ye...

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

10-30-2013

The last entry in the Advance Wars series, Days of Ruin (2008), never released in Japan. Weird, right? Well, in news that no one expected, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin has been made available in Japan as a downloadable Club Nin...


 

Doodle Jump

10-09-2013

Doodle Jump on smartphones is one of the best time wasters on the platform, but the Kinect version was a huge mess, mostly due to the forced motion controls. So it seems as if they're trying again with Doodle Jump for the 3DS...

Color Commando

05-10-2013

Chrono Trigger

03-12-2013

Retro game inspired music speaks to me (as I'm sure it does for many of you), and while I do enjoy a good remix/remake/remaster here and there, a lot of my favorite pieces are original compositions. Electronic music creator ...
