Review: Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth

Categories: 3DS, Reviews

Over the years, Etrian Odyssey has become one of my favorite smaller franchises on the 3DS. Its retro feel and tight mechanics coupled with a vivid style make every single entry solid, even if few really stand out. And while there’s been a smattering of games on the system —…

Review: 88 Heroes – 98 Heroes Edition

Author: Jaxson Tapp
Categories: Reviews, Switch

88 Heroes is perhaps the craziest platformer I have ever played, plain and simple. It’s a game that doesn’t pull punches by any means, with a steep learning curve and many, many heroes to master. It lives up to its name, quite literally, by having 88 — or 98 in…

Back in the golden age of gaming, before hand-holding tutorials, online wikis and internet forums reigned supreme, beating games was hard work. Players were largely at the mercy of their own wits when it came to exploring the labyrinths of Zebes or unearthing each legendary piece of the Triforce. It…

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Pokémon and fighting games were my bread and butter back during high school. Somehow that never led to me thinking the two should mix in any big way, and yet I’d go on to put plenty of hours into the Wii U version of Pokkén. I even managed to play…

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

Categories: 3DS, Reviews

Thanks to Other M’s convoluted sense for storytelling and the recent Federation flop of 2016, the future of the Metroid series was tossed into turmoil. Longtime fans like myself, who have been around since Justin Bailey’s’ 8-bit debut, have feverishly hoped for a series return to form, complete with a…
