Review: Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada

Developer Yoshiro Kimura has a brain that, I believe, runs perpendicular to everyone else in the games industry. When creating his own games, you get oddities not only in design but in character and world building. Sometimes his genius...   read

Hidden Folks looks and sounds delightful

Much like Darren, I am wholly on board with a game that takes the Where's Waldo? concept and just runs with it. That's the appeal of Hidden Folks and its painstakingly hand-drawn illustrations that'll have you poking and prodding and hunti...   read

That new Power Rangers movie is getting a mobile game

The Power Rangers had a couple of good games back in the 16 bit era. The SNES beat-em-up and Genesis fighting game are still held in high regard, but you'd be hard pressed to find another game from the series that even comes close to the qu...   read

The Fire Emblem mobile game will have a lot of familiar faces

So far, Nintendo has been pretty fair with their mobile releases. But a strategy game that houses microtransactions? It has the potential to get a little hairy. Well, maybe not any more hairy than a typical NIS SRPG that has characters link...   read

Pokemon Duel gets a surprise release on mobile devices

I'm not sure how many of you remember (I certainly didn't), but a more strategy focused mobile game based on Pokemon was released for Japanese mobile devices last year. The game was known as Pokemon Co-Master and was made in collaboration w...   read

It's a bit late to the finish line, but it'll get there eventually. Nintendo's Super Mario Run took the mobile world by storm in December when it racked up 40 million downloads in its first four days on iOS devices. Soon enough, the ot...   read

China still isn't lifting their ban on Pokemon Go because it's 'too dangerous'

From the start, we knew that Pokemon Go probably wouldn't release in China. The government is just too paranoid about it, and as we've seen in other regions, they don't want folks wandering around where they shouldn't be roaming. As of this...   read

Review: HoPiKo

Those Mega Man mobile games are out, are $1.99 each, and are awful

I woke up this morning to the news that the six Mega Man mobile games have hit both the iOS and Android marketplaces. They're $1.99 each, so $12 in total, and I thought to myself -- hey, $12 for all six classic games, on the go, whenev...   read

Ariana Grande is so into Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius

I always find it strange when there are celebrity cameos in video games. I'm not talking about something like the zaniness of Keith David being in Saints Row as Keith David (...after having voiced Julius in the first two games), but more li...   read

Android users can now pre-register for Super Mario Run

I'm really surprised an APK of Super Mario Run hasn't been crafted out of the iOS version and mass downloaded, but Android users hopefully won't have to wait too much longer to play. That's because you can now pre-register for the...   read

That Final Fantasy XV pinball game now has an expiration date

Justice Monsters Five, the pinball game created to promote Final Fantasy XV, kind of came and went. I mean, I played it inside of XV proper at random cafes and had a great time (I love the art), but I never really gave the sp...   read

Pokemon Go has holiday microtransactions in your microtransactions for a limited time

Rumor: Pokemon Go may use virtual trains and buses to trade creatures

Pokémon GO was one of the biggest successes of the year, and even though it'll never get back to the heights of popularity it began with, it's still getting regular updates. Niantic has said for quite a while that it's been work...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...   read
