Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo was an absolute classic and I've spent hundreds of hours with its various incarnations since 1996. Although it's not the optimal version of the game I was always fond of the 2003 Game Boy Advance port, which al...

Review: Semblance

The traditional 2D platformer genre accounts for some of my favorite games ever. That being said, it's always awesome to see a game try and change the genre in new and exciting ways. Semblance does just that, in a way I'm surprised I h...
