Donkey Kong Country Returns

11-19-2010

In 1994, the original Donkey Kong Country single-handedly saved the Super Nintendo from losing to the Genesis. The gorgeous platformer had everyone talking, with its solid gameplay, classic characters, and, most importantly, ...

Super Mario Galaxy 2

08-26-2012

Oh, you cuh-RAYzay hackers! What magic will you perform next? Some rosy-cheeked tinkerers have decided to hack the data for Super Mario Galaxy 2 to create a suite of custom levels called Super Mario Galaxy 2.5. The hack isn'...

Bit.Trip Complete

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...

Rock Band 2

03-23-2011

I picked up my first guitar when I was in elementary school, and I asked my father -- an amateur guitarist who strummed along along to David Bowie vinyl records for fun -- to teach me a basic chord. It wasn’t 15 minutes...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

12-11-2009

No weapons? Wii waggle? And a "re-imagining" of the first Silent Hill game is what they're calling this? The combination sounds like Silent Hill: My Worst Nightmare, and I don't mean that in a good way. Boy, was I ever wrong....

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

03-08-2013

Parents can be really awesome when it comes to cake. I remember for a birthday long ago, my mom made me a prehistoric landscape cake populated by dinosaurs, rough terrain, boulders, trees, and an erupting volcano. I thought ...

Metroid Prime: Trilogy

10-18-2013

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...

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

01-27-2010

At the time of this writing, I have just finished No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle after a 16-hour marathon play through, with occasional breaks to nap and go to the bathroom. This is not the best way to go about playing ...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

How classy can one video game theme be? Just ask the Triforce Quartet, the dapper gentlemen captured performing the Super Smash Bros. Brawl theme here. It's sweet, sweet music to my ears, and I surmise it will be to you...

Kirby's Epic Yarn

10-17-2010

When Kirby's Epic Yarn was announced, many people thought Nintendo was stringing us along, that the game would be poorly stitched together or otherwise patchy. A 2D platformer with a cute gimmick runs the risk of being threadbare, but it would appear that developer Good Feel has it all sewn up. You might worry that the bad yarn puns are a bit woolly, but I refuse to change my material.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

11-15-2011

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has removed a map from its servers after Muslim gamers complained (in fairness, quite politely) of offense. The problem lies in two paintings hung in a bathroom in the Favela map, containing the...

Super Meat Boy

02-25-2013

Look, I hate these posts as much as the next guy, alright? Kids. Yuck. Some people devote their lives to raising these little piles of germs with suspect motor skills. Even my dumb parents were foolish enough to fall into th...

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 ...

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...

Cave Story

Cave Story makes its way to the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Europe on May 1, Nicalis recently revealed. The publisher also confirmed plans to bring the title to Australian shores at some point in time. Daisuke Amaya's mag...

World of Goo

Gone are the days when owning your favorite game music required spending exorbitant amounts of money on a Japanese import. I say good riddance (though I still cherish my old Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack CD). These days, s...

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...

FIFA 12

05-07-2012

If financial domination was EA's goal then FIFA just scored big time. EA has released financial figures for fiscal 2012 that indicate it was a banner year for FIFA, pulling a record $108 million between microtransactions and ...

Rayman Origins

Experience Points is a series in which I highlight some of the most memorable things about a particular game. These can include anything from a specific scene or moment, a character, a weapon or item, a level or location, a p...

Geometry Wars: Galaxies

11-30-2007

In November of 2005, the Xbox 360 launched with a number of retail-based games. While the launch games were (arguably) solid, not all will be remembered as classics. But Bizarre Creation's Xbox Live Arcade title, Geometry War...
