Review: Super Mario 3D Land

Review: Star Fox 64 3D

The N64 is my least favorite console of all time, but I still feel the need to own one, mostly for Star Fox 64. It's easily one of my favorite games on the console, way ahead of Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. That's partly because thos...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a powerful game. It's a game that, once it sinks its claws into a gamer, never lets go. Equal parts innocent and morbid, charming and disturbing, silly and melancholic, Ocarina of Time is an enduring ...   read
