Review: Tadpole Treble

If I had to pick one word to describe Tadpole Treble, that word would be "charming." It's a simple premise, and it seems to have been inspired by the musical tadpole pond minigame in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The creative ...   read

One of 2015's lowkey best games is getting better

I liked Kingdom a lot when I reviewed it last year. It's a gorgeous building game that is incredibly simple to play (movement aside, there is only one button) that belies its discoverable depth, even if I took issue with the late game. But...   read

This Metroid 2 remake is hot hot hot and you can play the whole thing now

I'm as sad as CJ is that Nintendo doesn't seem to be celebrating Metroid's 30th anniversary. But the indie-developed AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) is finally here. We wrote about it all the way back in 2008, so this is definitely a l...   read
