Rodea: The Sky Soldier might be a bumpy ride

My first flight with Rodea: The Sky Soldier wasn't a smooth one. But perhaps that's to be expected of a title that's seen such a turbulent development history. The project went dark shortly after its initial announcement in 2010, ...   read

Puyopuyo Tetris is exactly as it sounds, and I dig it

Sega is showing off its new puzzle game Puyopuyo Tetris here at their already super busy TGS 2013 booth. As a fan of both games, I gave this cross-up a spin on the 3DS. Puyopuyo Tetris is also coming to the Vita and PS3 as well as the Wii U...   read

Skylanders Swap Force is surprisingly more fun than evil

Activision’s Skylanders franchise has always smelled of a money grab to me. Copperish, like the smell of old pennies scrounged up by hard-working parents so little Linda Anne can have all the newest and coolest Skylanders characters w...   read

Next Skylanders lets you swap parts to form new toys

The next Skylanders is the last thing fans were probably expecting as there's three major changes going on with Swap Force, the new entry in the series. For starters, it's not developer Toys for Bob making this one. Vicarious Visions, the t...   read

Preview: Unload your new toy chest with Disney Infinity

There's not a lot I remember about the rampant imagination of childhood, but most of the good memories came from the depths of my toy chest. Pitting Aliens against Transformers. Imagining Cloud Strife's sword slicing through Foxhound's r...   read

SDCC: Taking on Kirby's Dream Collection challenge mode

Kirby's Dream Collection is a bundle of some of the best Kirby games ever for the Wii in celebration of the 20th anniversary. Just the fact it contains Kirby's Super Star is enough for me, and the added bonus of the Kirby soundtrack CD is l...   read

E3: ZombiU multiplayer makes you lord of the dead

ZombiU's asymmetrical, competitive multiplayer is a nice little package. It will definitely be a dorm room favorite and a good time at parties. The general premise is that one player (in this case, my homeboy Pungi rocking the Wi...   read

E3: Game & Wario is neither Game & Watch nor WarioWare

Along with Project P-100, one of the biggest surprises at the Nintendo booth at E3 was Game & Wario. I would have definitely been less disappointed with Nintendo's on-site press conference if they had made some...   read

E3: Rayman Legends allows for asymmetrical dick moves

E3: Hands-on with ZombiU

Huh. That was my first reaction after playing ZombiU for the Wii U at Nintendo's booth during E3. Huh. Now, "huh" usually has a negative connotation, but that is not necessarily the case with this particular game. The "huh" is more a simpli...   read

E3: Hands-on with Project P-100

Project P-100 (working title) from Platinum Games (creators of Viewtiful Joe and MadWorld) was one of the strangest Wii U games I played on the show floor at E3. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it reminded me of Elebits, ...   read

E3: Body slamming men in tights from space in Injustice

E3: Madden NFL 13 feels better because of physics
