8-bit, sidescrolling horror action at it's absolute finest
Before I start "reviewing" everything I love about this game, Let me tell you something about video games for a second. Lately, I've been in a video game rut. In every game I played, I felt the same poor design choices, time and time again, and that is games that practically hold your hand along the way, never allowing you to explore the game's true potential. In today's gaming market,... [Read More]
When the wii launched, the only game available that really centered itself around the Wii remote was Ubisoft's Red Steel. Ultimately, Red Steel proved to be nothing but a tech demo with very little lasting appeal. Ironically, at the launch of the Wii U, Ubisoft was there again with one of the only games built entirely around the Wii U game pad. Thankfully, this is more than just a tech... [Read More]
F-Zero, a Nintendo racing series that got its start on the SNES, was never really all that popular. Despite this, its lead character, Captain Falcon, was featured in the N64 Super Smash Bros. (and he has been in every Smash Bros. since). One could even argue that Super Smash Bros. has helped define the character more so than the F-Zero series. The Gamecube is really where the F-Zero series became... [Read More]
It's funny that as often as ghosts appear in games as enemies, there are very few where you actually control a ghost.The possibilities for what could be done are quite creative, and the developers behind Geist new this. Geist is a Gamecube exclusive that is quite innovative, and which, like Metroid Prime, is primarily a first person exploration based shooter. It's also one of only two Nintendo... [Read More]
While Fire Emblem has seen much success in the west since it was introduced here, Path of Radiance was released to a relatively small western audience. There were two Gameboy Advance Fire Emblem games released prior, and these were the only two that most westerners would have been familiar with. Path of Radiance ultimately turned out to be one of the best in the series, and holds up very well as... [Read More]
Most people would probably agree the Gamecube's strongest area was multiplayer. With games like Super Smash Bros., that's hard to deny. There is a game, however, that is often left out of Gamecube multiplayer lists. It someone manages to sneak under people's radar, despite the fact that I remember this game being advertised like crazy. That game, of course, is Final Fantasy: Crystal... [Read More]
Nintendo has signed a deal with SEGA that will see the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS the exclusive homes of new Sonic the Hedgehog games. The first game comes out later in the year, titled “Sonic: Lost World”. This pretty much means meas that all you Sonic fans will need to go out and buy a Wii U (don’t worry, there are plenty to go around) or 3DS.

Earlier in the year we learned that a new Batman Arkham title was due in 2013, courtesy of a Warner Bros. financial briefing, and we were hoping that it'd appear on Wii U. The good news is that the statement was true and that Nintendo's system is in line to enjoy the next entry; Batman: Arkham Origins.
Also due on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, development is being taken up by WB Montreal, which previously brought us... [Read More]
Plain and simple: EA isn't working on any Wii U games following the delayed released of last month.
Following the departure of CEO John Riccitiello, COO Peter Moore told GameSpot: “We still have thousands of people focused on developing current-generation Xbox 360 and PS3 games, as well as people focused now on the next generation when that finally arrives.” Evidently, EA doesn't consider the Wii U to be...
