Rodea the Sky Soldier Review – Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

By  •  Reviews

I’m a bit upset. Why? Because I have a lot of respect for Yuji Naka, whom you may know as Sonic the Hedgehog’s daddy, and in Rodea the Sky Soldier, he’s certainly created a game worth playing… on the Wii at least. Read Review

Super Mario Maker Review – Make My Day

By  •  Reviews

As an unapologetic Nintendo lover, I often consider it a bit strange that the everlasting Mario franchise doesn’t even register in my top five in terms of series created by the Big N. I certainly enjoy Mario titles and some games, like Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door and Mario Kart 8are eternally among my all time favourites.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review – Adventure Time

By  •  Reviews

As one of Princess Peach’s most loyal attendants, Toad has been quite used to playing second fiddle in the Mario universe. He first appeared in the NES title Super Mario Bros. as the clueless messenger in each of Bowser’s strongholds, giving you a pat on the back for saving him and directing you to yet “another castle.” Read Review

The Most Obnoxious Monsters in Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate (Part 1)

By  •  Features

Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate is a game with real staying power, and it’s a constant presence in my Wii U’s disc drive. It waits patiently for my return, unflustered by the novelty of new titles and the supposedly massive amount of content they have on offer. It’s used to long spells of rejection – in fact, I’m starting to think it thrives off it…

Shovel Knight Review – Digging Up Old Frustrations

By  •  Reviews

I launched into Shovel Knight with some pretty hefty expectations given the buzz about it being one of the standout indie titles of 2014. Catchy chiptunes, uber-hard platform mechanics, old school rescue-the-princess storyline re-imagined with shovels instead of swords. Read Review
