Nintendo is gearing up for more mobile games, plans 2-3 per year

Super Mario Run may not the most successful game around, but it has still drawn in a decent chunk of paying customers. The best thing about the title is that it isn't loaded with microtransactions, but the company seems to be changing its f...   read

Review: Pokemon Duel

One of the big challenges of getting a competitive free-to-play game just right is making sure it never feels like someone can simply pay-to-win. As a person who isn't totally against buying a microtransaction or two, I want to make sure th...   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

Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct will feature multiple Fire Emblem titles

Without a doubt, the big surprise of last week's Nintendo Switch reveal event for me was Fire Emblem Warriors. I'm so into the game conceptually that even its bare-bones teaser trailer was enough to get my mind racing just thinking about th...   read

Review: HoPiKo

Have you ever wondered why a lot of modern platforming games have nothing to do with platform jumping? While I appreciate the amount of diversity that exists within the genre, why are most of the obstacles usually enemies instead of the lev...   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

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

Review: Super Mario Run

Two years ago, if you had told me Nintendo was making a Mario runner for mobile, I would have laughed directly into your face. Not just any laugh, but a big, boisterous laugh usually reserved for moments of schadenfreude and Tyler Perry mov...   read

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has some familiar faces

Looks like Super Mario Run will require a persistent connection

I knew there had to be a catch to Super Mario Run. While we originally thought that was going to be microtransactions, it looks like the game will require an online connection at all times. That shouldn't be the biggest issue for a mobile p...   read
