SteamWorld Heist review photo

Review: SteamWorld Heist

SteamWorld Dig is a criminally underrated game. Although some were quick to judge its short length, it's the perfect thing to pick up and play at the drop of a hat, and the pacing is basically perfect. Heist is a completely differ...

 
 
Fast Racing Neo photo

Review: Fast Racing Neo

In the three years since the launch of the Wii U, one of the most notably absent Nintendo properties on the console has been F-Zero. The series, which focused on futuristic fast-paced track racing, has been dormant for over a decade with ve...

Very Quick Tips: Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the most intricate JRPGs I've played in quite some time. I even ended up taking notes on a real notepad for it on a few occasions! Here are some tips to help kickstart your adventure.

 
 
Xenoblade review photo

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

When Xenoblade Chronicles was announced for localization on the Wii, my heart skipped a beat. While there are plenty of JRPGs to go around, the more the merrier, and I wouldn't pass up the chance to experience another Monolith Soft gam...

 
 
Mario Tennis review photo

Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

Once upon a time, Mario Tennis was a national pastime at pretty much every household I visited. Back in the year 2000 there weren't a whole lot of alternative sports games outside of a few gems (I miss EA Sports Big), and the original ...

 
 
Rodea review photo

Review: Rodea the Sky Soldier

The history of Rodea the Sky Soldier is one muddled with platform changes and developmental issues galore. Originally slated as a Wii game in 2010, producer Yuji Naka ran into publishing troubles, and the project was essentially shelve...

 
 
Yoshi's Woolly World photo

Review: Yoshi's Woolly World

Yoshi's Woolly World is the epitome of adorable. From Yoshi's cute, easily read facial expressions to the bright colourful world he inhabits, the intricate minor details to the tactile physicality of the world, this game took the baton from...

 
 
LEGO Dimensions photo

Review: LEGO Dimensions

As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more than the LEGO&...

 
 
Skylanders review photo

Review: Skylanders: SuperChargers

Year after year, I can generally count on the Skylanders games. I had zero hope for Spyro's return back in 2011, but every single iteration has been a competent brawler. While Activision can be accused of running franchises into the gr...

 
 
Shovel Knight DLC review photo

Review: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

I can't believe it's been over a year since Shovel Knight released -- time flies, right? Over the course of that year, I've beaten it on every conceivable platform outside of the PC edition, playing it over and over again, even ta...

 
 
Super Mario Maker review photo

Review: Super Mario Maker

Ever since I was five years old, I've been drawing my own Mario levels on graph paper. It's a pretty common story, because when I look at a series to give me a platforming baseline, it's usually Mario. Nintendo didn't just create a ser...

 
 
Disney Infinity review photo

Review: Disney Infinity 3.0

It's only been two years since the release of the first Disney Infinity, which managed to become a massive hit before venturing into Marvel territory in the second game. Now, Disney has tapped the Star Wars market, and its monolithic i...

 
 
Pokken Tournament photo

Pokken Tournament is coming to Wii U in 2016

Pokken Tournament is the talk of the town -- the only issue is that basically everyone outside of Japan can't play it. Until 2016 that is, as Nintendo has just announced that Pokken is coming to the Wii U worldwide next spring. This n...

 
 
 
Splatoon updates photo

I can't keep up with all these Splatoon updates!

It seems like every time I boot up Splatoon, Callie and Marie are telling me about something new added to the game. Weapon variations are added all the time, and just recently, a big 2.0 patch hit. New gear, new types of weapons, new music,...

Roving Rogue photo

Review: Roving Rogue

When I heard of a game concept that starts you off at the last boss and takes you back through his castle as the story progresses, I was intrigued. Sadly, the mere premise of Roving Rogue is probably its strongest quality.

Lucas goes big and goes home in Super Smash Bros. 4

Lucas is one of those characters that people will play no matter how good or bad he is in a given Smash Bros. game. Mother/Earthbound fans are like that. Just look at the comments in the announcement post for Earthbound Beginnings. The love...

 
 
Ryu Smash Impressions photo

Ryu is gunning for top tier in the new Super Smash Bros.

Remember the first time you went online with Street Fighter IV with your favorite character, Hakan, and fought about 100 Ryus in a week? And they all spammed Hadoukens and always woke up with a Shoryuken? Wouldn't you like to relive those m...

 
 
 
 
Next Penelope review photo

Review: The Next Penelope

If I told you that I wanted to mix Greek mythology with the racing and shoot-'em-up genres, you'd probably call me crazy. But that's just what developer Aurelien Regard did with his one-man show The Next Penelope, and for the most part, the...

Lucas will make his debut in Super Smash Bros. on June 14

Nintendo of Europe appears to be the gatekeeper of all Super Smash Bros. info, as it tends to announce everything first. Today, it has revealed that Lucas will make his way into Smash as 3DS and Wii U DLC on June 14. For those who...
