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...

Yumi's Odd Odyssey

03-28-2014

There's an important rule in the entertainment industry: Know your audience. For the PS Vita version of Yumi's Odd Odyssey set to arrive in April in Japan, it appears this philosophy is being followed pretty closely. See if you can spot what the difference might be between the Nintendo 3DS version and the "ahem" mature Vita version. It might take you a while, so be patient. [Via Twitter]

Yoshi's New Island

03-13-2014

Like the DS before it, the 3DS is becoming one of my favorite platforms. Now that we are several years into its life, it has a pretty great selection of first and third-party games. There are enough now that I have fallen beh...

Xeodrifter

12-25-2014

Xeodrifter is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Vita this spring, Renegade Kid announced today. The minimalist "Metroidvania" launched on 3DS and PC late last year, earning high marks from our own Jonathan Holmes, who said it might be the Mutant Mudds developer's "best game yet." The studio also just put out a special edition on Steam, which features a dev diary and soundtrack. Xeodrifter [Steam]

Woah Dave!

11-02-2014

We heard about April's PlayStation Plus games earlier this week but here's another late addition: Woah Dave! from Choice Provisions. The penny-collecting, alien-dodging, egg-throwing arcade game was free for subscribers back ...

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...

Weapon Shop De Omasse

02-20-2014

Level-5's Guild series started out as a bizarre anthology of pint-sized experiences from industry veterans. Initially released in Japan during the spring of 2012, the package would come to western shores later that year. Well...

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...

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 ...

Tokyo Crash Mobs

02-03-2013

In the mid 90's, games produced on "CD ROM" format became available to the mass market for a relatively low cost. With a vastly expanded capacity for storage to work with, developers jumped at the chance to integrate&nbs...

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call

09-11-2014

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call was a joy to play. It was absolutely packed with content, so the fact that DLC has been steadily dropping since launch hasn't bothered me -- all in all, it's one of the biggest rhythm ...

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

07-02-2012

I love iOS gaming -- I really do. Over the years, a number of amazing original games have enamored me into playing more and more on the mobile market, and it's allowed a ton of indie devs to flourish with low development cost...

The Starship Damrey

05-18-2013

"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...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

06-17-2011

Okay, Taylor Davis is officially a badass. Late last year we saw her dressed as Sheik and playing a couple of the ocarina songs from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. She took the simple melodies and transformed them...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

02-13-2015

It doesn’t seem too long ago that Nintendo were struggling. With the slow sales of the Wii U that hit profits back in 2013 and the dwinding 3DS user base in 2014, It looked like the little (pfffft) company that could un...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

11-14-2013

Club Nintendo is closing. A new loyalty program will be coming later this year, but I really enjoyed my time with it. The Club isn't completely dead yet though, especially in the case of the European version. The service rece...

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...

The "Denpa" Men: They Came By Wave

10-23-2012

When the 3DS was first released, an unlikely champion quickly rose to the top of a lot of early adopters' "most played games." Find Mii, the free, bare-bones, turn-based RPG that's included with the console was quic...

Tetris Axis

10-17-2011

Count on this: where there's a new Nintendo portable there's a new Tetris game. This time around, for the Nintendo 3DS, it's Tetris Axis. A strange name for a strange system. And it's a prety strange game, too. Yes, ther...

Tappingo 2

10-03-2014

As someone who has gone through several Picross apps on his iPhone, I was excited to hear about Tappingo 2, a puzzler for the 3DS in the same vein. Maybe this would be the perfect game for my long train rides.

Tappingo

Pure puzzle games can have a sort of zen effect for some players. Through repetition, players can almost subconsciously solve logic puzzles that would take an untrained person serious thought. When done well, time seems to me...

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 ...

Super Smash Bros.

Mewtwo's new incarnation in Super Smash Bros. might be on the juice, but he severely lacks one major feature -- custom moves. For whatever reason they are not included at the launch of the character, and Nintendo has be...

Super Mario 3D Land

11-09-2011

Having finally gotten a Wii U, my goal this week has been to play Super Mario 3D World and at least try not to burn through it too quickly. It's tough, though, with the promise of something new pushing me to continually do "j...

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. ...
