The Letter review

The Letter review

OH. MY. GOD.

Of all the thoughts The Letter raised as I suffered through it, all the confusing, demonic, twisted wisps of consciousness, only one has survived, only one nags at the back of my head, one simple word encompassing my entire experience with this intolerable spawn... Why? Why, I ask, would Nintendo... read more

BLOK DROP U review

BLOK DROP U review

Short, but sweet

A wonderful thing about eShop is how more puzzle games are appearing for us to enjoy. Two Tribes gave us cheap tasters due to some financial troubles and most of them came out quite well.

Sonic Chaos review

Sonic Chaos review

Not a mandatory Master System game, but it certainly holds its own

The Sonic franchise had a long line of games in the early days, many of them considered some of the best from their two respective systems. Whilst of course the first two Sonics on the Genesis sold incredibly well, the two Master System counterparts also sold well in Master System-centric areas. Sonic the... read more

Dead or Alive: Dimensions review

Dead or Alive: Dimensions review

These boobs came with a fighting game

Let's not try and sugarcoat it; DOA is the fighting game series equivalent of Baywatch. For those of you who have never played a modern Dead or Alive title, consider yourselves-for the most part-lucky. When you make an anti-feminist such as yours truly flat-out appalled by some of the objectification titles... read more

Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon's Trap review

One of the best Master System games of all time

Depending on the region that you grew up in, the Master System got a bum rap. The Master System essentially had its fate wrapped up for itself by Nintendo's licensing policies in the early days of the 8-bit era, which is a genuine shame, because the Master System had some genre defining and all-around... read more

Regardless, my... read more
