Super Mario 3D World

06-26-2014

If I'm being honest, the main reason I picked up Super Mario Galaxy when it came out was to see Rosalina. Her character design has always resonated with me. I mean, the game is fantastic, but I think I now prefer Rosalina to ...

Good lord, did Atlus take its sweet time, but Shin Megami Tensei IV is finally out in Europe. Also, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Better late than never! The role-playing game is available for &eur...

Super Smash Bros.

04-20-2015

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 Street Fighter IV 3D Edition

04-12-2011

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 ...

Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword

02-12-2012

It's always a pleasant surprise to go into a game with little to no expectations beforehand and come out of it with a completely positive opinion. Such was the case with the recent downloadable title Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword. The game wasn't even really on my radar, but after playing it, I realized I should be paying more attention to Nintendo's eShop library.

Star Fox 64 3D

09-22-2011

Those who bought a Nintendo 3DS may wonder why their system -- which perfectly allows for online gaming -- hasn't got any online games. Crucially, they may wonder why a multiplayer-focused release like Star Fox 64 3...

Super Mario 3D Land

05-01-2014

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...

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

08-19-2013

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers is a game with a name hard to squeeze into a headline. It also released for the 3DS in April in the United States (August 2012 in Japan). It will finally be released in Europe ...

Skylanders: Swap Force

01-12-2014

If you haven't been following Skylanders, the game requires specific physical toys to unlock content. Not only does each character have a unique challenge, but they also have particular elemental powers (to unlock certain gat...

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. ...

Shinobi

01-24-2012

It has been nearly 10 years since we were last put into the sandals of an Oboro Clan shinobi, the last game of which was well received despite (or perhaps because of) its high difficulty. Though it brought the series into the...

Sonic Generations

01-04-2012

Full disclosure: before playing Sonic Generations (3DS) for review, I had never finished a Sonic game. I bought all the collections and rented or bought used copies of all the Wii titles because I love the series in theory. S...

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

06-25-2013

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...

Skylanders Giants

02-02-2013

Activision sent a box of those Skylanders Giants Happy Meal toys over. Bereft of anything interesting to do, I decided to review them. I didn't really review them, though. I just rambled sarcastically while playing with toys.  Videogame journalism is real.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

If you've been jonesing for a new racing game you can carry in your pocket, consider Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which is now free on the App Store as well as Google Play. See, Android users? They didn't forget ...

Steel Empire

08-05-2014

Steel Empire is a game that not many people were able to experience, sadly. As a child, you likely only had access to either a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis, which cut out a ton of potential classics for you to play and cher...

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

12-10-2014

The long awaited Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is finally about to hit the Wii U. The game has been out on the 3DS for a little while now, but I've been holding out for the home console version. Wii U-specific features like...

SteamWorld Dig

SteamWorld Dig is worth investigating if you enjoy the super-fun drilling action of Mr. Driller but stink at the game or otherwise get overwhelmed before long. Image & Form is bringing its robotic Western adventure to yet...

Sonic Lost World

11-05-2013

Sonic Lost World may not have met everyone's expectations, but two free pieces of Nintendo-themed DLC sits right with me. We already got a chance to play the 2D Yoshi's Island-themed add-on back in December, but now...

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure

10-05-2013

When they announced that the next Scribblenauts game would include characters and settings from the DC Comics Universe, I was excited. That's a lot of history to pull from, and with Scribblenauts' reputation of including tons...

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles

04-02-2011

Where there is a new system, there is a new Warriors game waiting in the wings. Tecmo Koei has gotten in early this time, ready for the 3DS' launch with Samurai Warriors Chronicles, yet another button-bashing foray into the world of medieval Japan.  Maybe Tecmo Koei rushed in a little too early this time.

Steel Diver: Sub Wars

07-17-2014

Steel Diver was ultimately a semi-bland experience for me, but it was a great grasp of the free-to-play market by Nintendo, as they showed that they can do it better than publishers who have been exploiting it for years. They...
