Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Friends to the End

It's no small secret that I'm in love with the Shantae series. I was immediately taken in by the magnetic characters, brilliant music and retro adventure action. The WayForward developed franchise marries the gameplay of classic platformers...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...
