Author: Ricky Berg
Categories: Reviews, Switch

When it comes to multiplayer there are few games that can boast as lasting and consistent a legacy as Bomberman. The overall game design hasn’t changed much in the last 33 years and with good reason: it still works incredibly well. There’s an inherent madness that comes along with a…

Review: VOEZ

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Reviews, Switch

One of my favorite genres on handheld platforms is rhythm – Elite Beat Agents was in my DS cart slot for months at a time, and I’d still argue Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is one of the best 3DS games out there. It’s not like I’m a music buff…

Disclaimer: this review was completed using a New 3DS. Game may perform differently on older models. Game developer Good-Feel captured my heart almost immediately with its work on Kirby’s Epic Yarn.

Review: Super Mario Maker for 3DS

Categories: 3DS, Reviews

Last year’s Super Mario Maker on Wii U was nothing short of revolutionary. The love child of Super Mario All-Stars and Mario Paint, it proved a unique celebration of Nintendo’s most iconic mascot that let gamers play, create and share their very own Mario levels. In many ways, it was…

Categories: 3DS, Amiibo News, Reviews

Disclaimer: This review covers a PAL region (European) copy of the game. It’s no secret that the Mario Party series has strayed from the path over the last few years. Mario Party 9 and Mario Party 10 wandered perhaps a little too far from the path with their changes to…

Japanese developer Falcom (Ys, Legend of Heroes) is a minor legend among JRPG fans. It’s been around for a long time, but it hasn’t really surpassed cult status in the West, due to the relative obscurity of most of their titles. But every now and then, one of its games…
