I want to give Sega credit for two bold moves: First, the company’s released the fourth game in its handheld dungeon-crawler JRPG series 7th Dragon in the West, making it the first in the series to leave Japan. Second, bless the people at Sega who saw that title and didn’t…

Last year, HAL Laboratory treated us to a lighthearted puzzle platformer that was one of the true gems of 2015 on the 3DS. That game was BOXBOY!, a fun and simple puzzle game that had us controlling Qbby, a sentient square with the ability to spawn boxes from his body….

Born with a can-do attitude and the patience of a saint, I’ve always had a strong penchant for playing challenging video games. It all traces back to those early childhood days mastering the 8-bit adventures of Mega Man in my parents’ basement. As fans of the series well know, defeating…

Two years ago when Kirby Triple Deluxe came out it was a return to form on the handheld front for this classic Nintendo hero. Taking several stylistic cues from the Wii’s Kirby Return to Dream Land, Triple Deluxe was fun, fully-featured and managed to look spectacular the whole way through….

Review: Pocket Card Jockey

Categories: Reviews

Solitaire and horse racing are two concepts one normally wouldn’t associate with one other. At first, it sounds like an imperfect pair: peanut butter and cement mix; peaches and bleach; Paper Mario and stickers.

Review: Star Fox Guard

When Shigeru Miyamoto revealed Project Guard at E3 2014, I wasn’t impressed. The title seemed gimmicky and uninteresting, and while I trust the man behind it there are never guarantees when it comes to games. I forgot about it over time: another bad sign in terms of what it could…
