Wasteland 2: Director's Cut  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

The REAL "Fallout 3"

Way back in 1988, the young Brian Fargo co-developed a PC RPG with a unique setting for publication by his new startup publishing house, Interplay. This game was “Wasteland,” which took place in a post-nuclear holocaust version of the state of Arizona sometime in the 1990s. While the Internet’s historical record takes pains to portray “Wasteland” in a positive light, using words like ‘critically ...

Senran Kagura Estival Versus  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Estival Versus: Good Story but, Yeah, Mostly Boobs

Since its inception in 2011, Senran Kagura has morphed from a side-scrolling beat-'em up to a more Musou style beat-'em up but it has always featured a variety of female ninjas and the ability to strip your enemy. Surprisingly, the series originated with Nintendo - whose wholesome game approach seems counter to what Senran Kagura stands for, but I guess don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Obvio...

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Sloppy Second

“Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris” (“LCTO”) is the 2014 follow-up title to 2010’s “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light,” which took the character(s) and lore of the venerable ‘Tomb Raider’ franchise out of the big-budget “AAA” space and plopped them into a demastered, top-down/isometric environment that focuses more on puzzles than flashy graphics or setpieces. I didn’t know what to think of...

Mass Effect 3  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Who Reaps the Reapers?

I'm a bit late to the party on the final game in the original Mass Effect trilogy, but maybe it's for the better. When it first came out, the Internet essentially went in to rage mode over the original ending, which was both unsatisfying and ambiguous. BioWare even had to release a free Ending DLC patch that "fixed" their mistake and, by and large, I think the new ending works (for me anyway). Ma...

CastleStorm  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Birds and Ballistae

“Castlestorm” is a multi-platform genre mashup by Hungarian Indie developer, Zen Studios. Released in 2013 on a variety of digital platforms, a year later, “Castlestorm” received a mobile Free2Play version on iOS and Android.

Presentation
“Castlestorm” has a lot of visual pop. The character designs are cartoony, stylized, and colorful (I especially love the female Viking Bear Riders wi...

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

A Good Merge of A Beat 'Em Up With A RPG Series

Dragon Quest Heroes successfully blends a beat 'em up game with the Dragon Quest RPG formula to create a game that's enjoyable if not a little repetitive from time to time.

I'll get this out out of the way right now. I'm a big Dragon Quest fan. As such, I understand that this review might be slightly biased. Perhaps my score of this game is slightly inflated because of it. But, I will also...

Super Mario 3D Land  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

A 3DS Game That Actually Uses The 3D Well

Super Mario 3D Land may seem overly simple at first but as you progress in the game the challenge and enjoyment increases to the point where I call it one of the best games on the 3DS.

Nintendo took a new approach to this Mario game that hadn't been done before. Instead of creating another left to right 2D platformer or a 3D open world approach, Nintendo decided to create a hybrid of the two....

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

The DS Helps Make This One Of The Series Best

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is one of the best in the series and the game works incredibly well in the dual screen DS set up.

Ever since the Castlevania series was revolutionized by Symphony of the Night for the PS1 the portable versions have followed suit with this "Metroid-vania" type game. The 2D platformer style where there's a map with save points as you traverse the castle simply works ...

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Super Flappy Meat... Oh Boy?

Having pretty much run out of every other couch co-op multiplayer option, I reluctantly joined in to give Badland a try. I admit, the first time around I had a lot of fun as the first "Day" was rather fun (other than one particular level) and despite the massive amount of death, I thought it worked well (for a short burst anyway). However, Day 2 revealed the true nature of Badland and fun went ri...

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...
