Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker review

Time for adventure!

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a curious title, first having starred Link from Legend of Zelda and then turning from a side activity in Super Mario 3D World to a short game of its own. While Treasure Tracker is not as fully-featured as it could be, Captain Toad's latest is definitely worth trying. CTTT... read more

KickBeat: Special Edition review

The zen is with this one

KickBeat: Special Edition blends a rather unique element of martial arts kung fu with rhythm game action. Initially I felt incredibly self-conscious and silly playing as a martial artist kicking enemies to the rhythm of the music, but after spending some time with the game, its charm really came to the... read more

Why the Inclusion of The Duck Hunt Dog in Super Smash Bros. Was Brilliant

How the the most hated character in video games rose to the top of the Smash heap

To say that Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U has been a huge success for Nintendo would be a fair statement. The handheld version is one of the top ten selling 3DS games and the console version is the fastest selling Wii U game in the US. So what is the reason for the game's success? Some would say... read more

Who needs Skyrim???

During last night's Game Awards show, many new trailers and gameplay videos were shown.

The Legend of Dark Witch review

Falls short of being mega memorable

There has been a deep void left in the 2D Action/Platformer genre since Capcom kicked Mega Man to the curb, but more and more Indie developers have been paying homage to the Blue Bomber with their own digital releases using the classic running and shooting mechanic. There is also the highly-anticipated... read more

It's time to D-D-D-D-D-Draft!

Digital card games have been around for nearly as long as video games themselves. Games based on original properties are fairly common on the PC, but console and handheld gamers are usually relegated to licensed games.

Ackk Studio's Y2K Coming to the Wii U's eShop

More JRPG love for Wii U owners

It's rough to be a JRPG fan this console generation, especially on the Wii U. Most notable RPGs seem to be going to either Microsoft or Sony's consoles or sticking to the older hardware for their larger install bases. This has left more niche developers and indie studios to fill the gap that would normally... read more

ZombiU 2 Coming October 2015!?

Time to dust off the old cricket bat

If a recent listing on Amazon France is to be believed, ZombiU 2 could be shambling its way to the Wii U in October 2015.

Saban's Power Rangers Super Megaforce review

Not so super after all

I can't for the life of me remember a time when a Power Rangers game came out that didn't get met with negative reception. Much like other licensed video games based off movies or television shows, Power Rangers never quite got the hang of translating well into video games. While a good game based off the... read more
