Oh hey look, a new Final Fantasy that isn’t named Final Fantasy for some reason!

It took a little while for the game to get to us but we finally got it, and I was somewhat hyped for it. It seemed to bring back a lot of what FF has been lacking for a while.

So is it any good? Read on and see!

Super Mario 3D Land review

November 27th, 2011 No comments

It’s Mario. It’s awesome. Do I really need to say more?

Okay, I guess saying just that is really not doing this game justice, since there’s actually a lot to say about it. Its original game design philosophy is something to be commended and that’s what I want to talk about here.

So read on!

Games coming out in October 2011

September 18th, 2011 4 comments

Well just because I’m bored, I’m writing this early, yay! October 2011… I was actually expecting more interesting releases, but I guess we may have to wait until November. In the meantime, there’s still a couple interesting games here.

Let’s see… for October 2011 we have:  9 multiplatform releases, 3 PS3 releases, 3 3DS releases, 2 Xbox 360 releases, 2 PC releases and the first truly great Wii release of the year (note: yes Mario Sports Mix was good, but definitely not GREAT)! Don’t forget this only includes interesting or potentially popular games, and it maybe be missing a couple hidden gems (and downloadable games, these rarely get release dates this fast). I try to not include shovelware in these lists.

So read on and see what you’ll be buying!

Star Fox 64 3D review

September 18th, 2011 No comments

I wasn’t sure if I was going to review this at all, for the same reason I didn’t review OoT3D. In the case of OoT3D… what would be the point? Everyone who can call themselves a gamer has played that glorious game at least once in their lives, and already know if they like it or not. There’s literally nothing I can say about OoT3D that hasn’t been said billions of times already. It’s a game that shouldn’t be reviewed.

But then I figured that Star Fox 64, while quite popular in its own time, is currently pretty much only know for “Do a barrel roll!” and “Can’t let you do that, Star Fox!”, basically just being a cheap meme machine. So… what the heck, let’s review it!

Games coming out in June 2011

May 18th, 2011 5 comments

It’s June! The time of E3, awesome game announcements and, sometimes, interesting releases. This year does actually have a few good games coming out in June.

We have 3-4 3DS releases (and, depending on how you see it, we have more than that), 10 multiplatform releases, 1 Xbox 360 release, 1 PS3 release, 1 Wii release and 1 DS release.

Let’s add to that the fact that the PSN Network just got back up, the store will be online soon and will play catch-up with all the missed updates, so there may be a few good releases there (and don’t forget to pick up your free games once the store is back up… as a note, the best choices are inFamous and Dead Nation, so if you don’t have those… get them!).

Read on and see if you’re picking anything up!

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars review

April 8th, 2011 No comments

This is the surprise release of the 3DS launch. Seeing just the title, most people probably expected it to be a meh third-person shooter, but when screens started popping out, it turns out it was a turn-based strategy game, made by the guy behind the old X-com series… Well I was interested.

Read on and see if it was any good!
(Note: This was just a rental, so I didn’t get to the end of the game… take this review as you will)

Steel Diver mini-review/impressions

April 4th, 2011 No comments

It’s a new IP by Nintendo! And it’s for their new 3DS system! This HAS to be a big deal, right? Sadly, not really. While it does offer some interesting ideas, it falls short in most areas.

I’ll try out a completely new, one-time-only reviewing style on this one. Read on!

3DS – First impressions/mini-review (or something)

March 31st, 2011 4 comments

The next generation of handheld gaming has started, with Nintendo taking the lead with a super early, near-stealthy release of their device.

The main selling point here, at least when it comes to the advertising and first impressions, is the glasses-free 3D, something no other system has ever done (well… technically the virtal boy didn’t require 3D glasses… but I’ll consider the virtual boy as a whole to be a big pair of 3D glasses :P).

So are Nintendo setting the world on fire with their new device? Read on and see!

Games coming in March 2011

February 27th, 2011 4 comments

Ah, March. It’s frequently a pretty big month for game releases. This year it’s no exception, but not really because of the actual games coming out. This March sees the release of the next-generation of handheld consoles (note: next-generation will instantly become “current-generation” as soon as the 3DS comes out).

So this month we have: 18 3DS games for its launch, 10 multi-platform titles, 4 interesting DS games, 3 PS3 exclusives, 2 PC exclusives and 3 PSP games. There should be interesting games for everyone in March. And keep in mind those are just the interesting/popular titles, no shovelware in there.
