The great Wave 4 amiibo hunt is on today, and it's about what we expected

Today, Wave 4 of the amiibo shopping "experience" begins. We already assumed it was going to be hell on earth based on the pre-order process, and it turned out to be fairly uninspiring all around as shops opened across the US. This week, Ro...   read

Review: Swords and Soldiers II

Review: NERO

Review: Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities

Review: Cosmophony

I had been lulled into a false sense of security. I finished the tutorial and the first level of Cosmophony with a perfect rating in about 15 minutes. "Four more levels of this?" I thought. "Child's play." Cut to an hour and a half later. S...   read

amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits is severely underwhelming

Review: Mario Party 10
