Samurai Rising is a new Final Fantasy-esque action RPG from Square Enix

Square Enix has announced Samurai Rising, which is due out on Android and iOS at some point in the future (likely this year). Before you groan, it actually looks pretty good! It's an action RPG akin to something like Secret of Mana, and fea...

Miitomo is the hottest app in Japan

Many traditional games publishers have tried to succeed on mobile platforms, but few have managed to replicate their success and become fixtures of the iOS and Android marketplaces. Nintendo is off to a hot start, though. The company's firs...

 
mii-crotransactions
Miitomo, Nintendo's first mobile phone game is officially available in Japan, and I've gotten my grubby hands on it by being a big fat liar, all because I love you, dear readers. After messing around with it for an entire day and avoiding all other aspects of my life, I think I have a decent grasp of it, and it is by no means perfect. But it is damned sure addicting.   read

Nintendo finally understands online networks

This morning, I've been playing the Japanese release of Miitomo, Nintendo's first smartphone app. While the app itself is interesting, I was mainly blown away by the fact that Nintendo's new online service is not only functional, but more u...

Still playing Fallout Shelter? 'Cause it has a whole bunch of new stuff

Fallout Shelter has been out for almost nine months, but it's just now getting its largest update ever. That's probably a good thing for the people who are still playing virtual vault overseer. A little shake-up has to be widely welcom...

Have you ever been in a GameStop and looked up at the monitor to witness that awful rabbit mascot ad? Slashy Souls is a lot like that, but somehow worse. It's one giant ad that disgraces the Souls name.   read

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Burly Men at Sea is still super cute

Shooting Stars! review
The highlight of this game for me was when a disco ball played a cheap sound-alike of Sandstorm. That should be all you need to know. But, if those words don't paint a bleak enough picture for you, read on to find out all about the sad interbreeding of laser-cats, bacon, and mediocre shooter mechanics that make up Shooting Stars!   read
