999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

11-17-2010

What really is a game, anyway? This is a question that bothers a lot of insecure people with insignificant things to argue about. Actually, when 999 came out on iOS in Japan we learned it had removed the "escape the room" puz...

Aliens: Infestation

10-12-2011

Videogames owe a lot to Aliens. The movie classic gave us the archetypal space marine, then pitted them against a nest full of drooling Xenomorphs, the titular Aliens that have served as a blueprint for so many videogame enem...

Antipole

08-03-2011

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the Antipole franchise, a game that originally launched in 2011 on the DSi. It's about to get a whole lot more relevant though, since developer Saturnine Games is bringi...

ATV Wild Ride

02-03-2011

With ATV Wild Ride, Renegade Kid veers wildly from territory its best known for, be it the nightmarish halls of a mental hospital in Dementium, or the sci-fi action of Moon. But the developer feels right at home with its latest, delivering one of the best racer offerings on Nintendo’s handheld to date.

Bejeweled 3

12-08-2011

Bejeweled has been around for years and has spawned quite a few variations. Keeping things fresh, however, is not always easy. PopCap is well known for fun, entertaining games however, and Bejeweled is just another of its wil...

BlayzBloo: Super Melee Brawlers Battle Royale

08-09-2010

Despite being only two games deep, the BlazBlue series has a rabid fanbase, and with every rabid fanbase comes spin-offs. That's not necessarily a bad thing. If a top-notch series can branch out into new genres, while retaini...

Color Commando

05-10-2013

The combination of puzzle and platforming is one of my favorite hybrid genres of all time. There's something about having to figure out challenges on the fly while testing your twitch capabilities that makes for a unique expe...

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

07-15-2010

The Dragon Quest series is gaming's greatest immovable object. While many franchises can be accused of repetition, no series has ever remained so close to the tree it fell from as this legendary collection of role-playing gam...

Flower, Sun, and Rain

09-03-2009

So we're a little late with this review of Flower, Sun and Rain, but cut us some slack, interpreting and attempting to understand a Suda51 game takes some time (plus some patience). Since we're a bit late, and it's damn near ...

G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den

08-26-2010

Japan can be a real ball hog sometimes. A bazillion awesome-looking games come out each year, yet only a handful get localized. Don't even get me started on the surplus of legacy software that appears on their download servic...

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

01-11-2011

Murder mysterious are a dime a dozen, but it’s not every day the gumshoe is investigating his own death from beyond the grave. Then again, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective -- the latest game by Ace Attorney creator Shu...

Giana Sisters DS

03-07-2011

Oh, snap. Seriously? A little over a year ago, I played through an import copy of Giana Sisters DS and posted my impressions as part of my Off-Brand Games series. I had assumed that the likelihood of the game releasing States...

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

01-07-2011

Yes, I know, this review is ridiculously late. But ... for fans of the first two Golden Sun games on the Game Boy Advance that have been looking forward to this anticipated, yet quietly-released Nintendo DS sequel, this revie...

Kirby Mass Attack

09-16-2011

Kirby's Epic Yarn was a triumph, but there's no denying that Kirby's true home is on a handheld platform. It's where he debuted and it's where he's had his biggest adventures. Kirby Mass Attack brings Kirby home, both in term...

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!

11-16-2010

[UPDATE] Whew! Just played through an additional 130 levels! Review updated! There was a time when I was desperate for more Mario vs. Donkey Kong. In the beginning, the series marked the return of the "real" Donkey Kong games...

Mega Man Zero Collection

06-10-2010

It sucks for us that neither the DSi nor the DSi XL has a GBA slot, but that omission could make for a profit deal for crafty publishers. Now they can re-release their old GBA games to die-hard fans who are willing to pay to ...

Michael Jackson: The Experience

12-10-2010

There's nothing like a celebrity death to make some free money for those left behind, and Ubisoft was the lucky company with the videogame rights after Michael Jackson popped off this mortal coil. Michael Jackson: The Experie...

Mighty Milky Way

05-08-2011

With the launch of the 3DS eShop upon us, magical unicorn factory WayForward decided to bless DSiWare with a parting gift! Billed as a spiritual sequel to 2009's Mighty Flip Champs!, details on Mighty Milky Way have otherwise...

Monster Tale

03-23-2011

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...

Okamiden

03-15-2011

If you attended PAX East this year (I didn't, darnit!), you might have noticed some adorable Okamiden swag for sale. Well, Capcom has taken the remaining items from that first-run batch and made them available through their o...

Pokemon Conquest
