The Little Mermaid vs DuckTales

A subjective look

We need to start using the term "Underrated gem" ironically, if at all. If I hear one more video-game reviewer use that term I might snap. It's just one of those terms like "black-sheep of the franchise" that really bugs me. Mostly because it's used so much in this line of work. Regardless, I would like... read more

All-Star Mode Returns in New Super Smash Bros.

All-Star Mode Returns in New Super Smash Bros.

Will have a few subtle changes

One of my personal favorite modes in the Super Smash Bros. series is All-Star Mode. The way it works: you run through a gauntlet, with a single life and limited health items, against the entire roster. In the past, this mode was only playable after every character was unlocked. However, in the new Smash... read more

Nintendo Says Mario Maker Won't Hurt Mario Sales

Can't match fun of the official games

While there were many great games at Nintendo's E3 showing, the most unique and exciting one to me was Mario Maker. The upcoming game gives players the ability to build their own Mario levels.

Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter review

Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter review

The force is weak with this one

If Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter has one good thing going for it, it makes me nostalgic for one of my all-time favorite flight sims, the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron series on Nintendo 64 and GameCube. I would spend hours upon hours flying as Luke Skywalker or Wedge Antilles, scoring bullseyes on womp... read more

Top 5 Mario Games

Because Mario is Awesome

University final resits are... very, very time consuming. On that note: Top 5's? To hitch a ride on the website bandwagon, Mario has been in my life since I was three years old and Super Mario Bros. was the first game I ever played.

Strike Force Foxx review

Strike Force Foxx review

80s action movie rolled up into a classic arcade package

Strike Force Foxx is a 2D helicopter action game. It's heavily influenced by the classic series Choplifter. Wait, scratch that, Strike Force Foxx is pretty much a modern day Choplifter, but unfortunately it doesn't really innovate on the formula and instead plays it generically safe. The premise is this:... read more

Splatoon Was Nearly a Mario Game

Splatoon Was Nearly a Mario Game

Nintendo devs had heated debates

One of Nintendo's pleasant surprises at this year's E3 was Splatoon. The game takes the squad-based shooter template and puts a Nintendo spin on it.
