The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

A Great HD Version Worth Revisiting

Twilight Princess HD is a remaster of one of the best 3D Zelda games out there and this high definition version compares well with other great games on WiiU.

The original Twilight Princess came out at the end of the GameCube's lifespan and at the launch of the Wii (2006). It came highly anticipated since the previous Zelda was Wind Waker and had cel shaded graphics. While Wind Waker was grea...

Shadow Complex Remastered  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Worth the Wait

Way back in 2009, Epic Games published a new ‘Metroidvania’ style Indie game by Chair Entertainment exclusively on the Xbox 360. At the time, classic console-style genres like this were critically endangered, as the influx of Shooters and Sandboxes from the West flooded the market. Yet, instead of releasing this new game, “Shadow Complex,” on multiple platforms, as was discovered to be the most e...

Pillars of Eternity  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

The First Pillar of the Modern RPG Revival

“Pillars of Eternity” (“Pillars”) is the long-time coming spiritual successor to the Golden Age Infinity Engine PC RPGs created by the likes of Black Isle and BioWare around the turn of the millennium. Unfortunately for PC gamers who enjoy high quality RPGs, the platform (and, indeed, all PC-like console platforms as well) became overrun by so-called “W”RPGs shortly after the release of “Neverwin...

Beyond: Two Souls  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Flawed but Goes Beyond a Typical Gaming Experience

As the end of one console's life began and the next generation arose, two games came out that pushed the limits of what the old generation could do - and what the next generation could improve upon. One game went on to be lavished with praise and awards, get a fancy remaster on the new console and forever be considered an amazing achievement in both story and design. The other was largely overloo...

Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Blindingly Beautiful, Blindingly Frustrating

“Ori and the Blind Forest” (“OBF”), of which I played the Definitive Edition, was started by Austrian Indie dev team, Moon Studios, before being snapped up by Microsoft for publication (hence the game’s availability only on MS-backed platforms). Despite their numbers on PC, any new 2D game in the ‘Metroidvania’ style tends to attract a lot of attention from gamers and the gaming press. “OBF” is n...

Mafia II  Add to game list
Rating of: 2.5/5

World Record for Profanity - Not Much Else

Mafia II from 2K games is a followup to the well-regarded first in the series. I bought the Greatest HIts version on PS3 just before the new generation came out and it had been sitting there, just waiting. I finally got around to this, hoping for an open-world experience similar to Grand Theft Auto but 2K dropped the ball in my opinion as the game, while open world, is far too linear, filled with...

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Trine 3: The First Part of Something Greater

Trine 3, naturally, follows the events in Trine and Trine 2. Frozenbyte has carved out a nice little niche in this title, especially when it comes to multiplayer, though they manage to keep coming up with improvements and tweaks to keep things fresh and interesting.

Presentation: While the overall presentation hasn't changed much, Trine 3 has gone from a side-scrolling game to a fully 3D world...

No Man's Sky  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

So Much Potential, So Much Disappointment

No Man's Sky is a game with an attractive principle and an abundance of potential but fails to achieve its goals in a lot of ways. What could have been a great game is basically an experience that can be enjoyed for while but gets routine and monotonous.

Anyone who followed this game before it's release was probably really excited about its premise. Basically you can explore a universe. You...

Mighty No. 9  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Flaws, Potential, and Fun

Mighty No. 9's technical flaws make it hard to truly enjoy this potential filled Mega Man clone.

Mighty No. 9's roots came from a Kickstarter campaign. One of the men who developed Mega Man games wanted to make Mighty No. 9 and a lot of hype and support came along with it. Perhaps this is one of the reasons this game didn't live up to the expectations but if the technical flaws weren't there ...

Mario Kart DS  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Good game but fast to beat

This game is one of the better turn on and play DS game. Since the DS is modelled as a portable consol that you can take with you on the go, this game is the perfect one to use it with. Although on easy mode beating the game can be done in about 2 hours, challenging yourself is necessary to keep an interest in playing it for more than a few games. Besides that the graphics are fantastic and reall...
