Here's what that giant hunk of Pokemon Z-Ring plastic looks like

Several months ago pre-orders opened up for the Z-Ring accessory for Pokemon Sun & Moon, and for science, I put myself down for one. It's literally a big piece of plastic that lights up when you use your Z-moves in-game, and can be kitt...   read

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls

Like Chris, I too fell in love with Yo-Kai Watch, though even before it launched here in America as I was playing an import copy before then.  While Chris seemed to enjoy the Bony Spirits a lot, I find myself torn about Flesh...   read

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt 2

While Mighty No. 9 didn't really deliver on everything it set out to do, Azure Striker Gunvolt was always there in the background, waving its hands frantically at Mega Man players. It never got the traction that Inafune and h...   read

Review: River City: Tokyo Rumble

River City Ransom was probably one of the best, most overlooked games on the NES, but remains a favorite for those who've played it since its release back in 1989. Combining a traditional beat-'em-up with the economy and stat growth of...   read

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

You could say I like Shin Megami Tensei. I mean, the original name (Megami Tensei), essentially translates to "Rebirth of the Goddess," so you know there's going to be religious undertones afoot. A story framed around the battle o...   read

Review: Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past (3DS)

While the first Dragon Quest was the first JRPG I ever played, I never really got into the series until over a decade later. In the world of DQ, I was a dedicated tourist -- present, but almost never at launch like I was for Final Fant...   read

Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice

As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a lawyer. Maybe it was The Firm, maybe it just called to me -- but that's not what ended up happening, despite earning my pre-law and philosophy degrees and prepping for the LSATs. In High ...   read

Super Mario Maker is coming to 3DS this year with a big restriction

Super Mario Maker, one of my most-played Wii U titles, is coming to the 3DS later this year on December 2. Shown off at today's Nintendo Direct, it looked just the same as the Wii U version in action. However, the biggest caveat, and one th...   read

Review: Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Next Level Games is in a good spot. Since 2014, it has just been working with Nintendo even though it's technically an independent developer. Despite having a history with low-key ports, it hit the big-time with 2009's Punch Out!!, as ...   read

These new Pokemon Sun & Moon forms are freaking me out

Pokemon Sun & Moon looks wackier every time some new bit of info drops. Ok, I get "long neck" Exeggutor, but then it starts getting confusing. Ice Vulpix and Sandshrew! What kind of madness is this in a tropical climate? Oh, and that is...   read
