The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening – Second time’s the charm

Though I count The Legend of Zelda as one of my favorite game franchises, I’ve never properly played Link’s Awakening. When I was a kid, my Game Boy served mostly as a vehicle for Pokemon, and though I’d always heard good things about Link’s Awakening, I never actually gave it a decent chance. Luckily for me, Nintendo has remade the […]

SuperMash – Genre Melding Experiment Is Novel But Shallow

Genres are incredibly important. Not just in video games, either; whether you’re reading a book, watching a movie, or listening to some music, genres are vital in indicating what kind of experience you’re in for. SuperMash takes this idea and flips it on its head, giving you the freedom to take two distinct game genres and smash […]

Super Mega Baseball 3 -Deserving of the superlatives

Don’t pay too much mind to the freakish aesthetics of Super Mega Baseball 3’s fictional stars: this cartoony sports sequel has all the trappings of a true simulation, but it’s all packed up in an alarmingly accessible wrapper. It means that practically anyone can step up to the plate and knock out a Home Run or three, […]

Huntdown – Remember when I said I’d kill you last? I lied

The future sucks, doesn’t it? There’s always something. Either we’re enslaved by robotic overlords, starving because we ran out of natural resources, or we just blow ourselves up with weapons of mass destruction. We’ve all seen the movies. Even if by some small chance the human race isn’t eradicated by Terminators or roasted in the fires of atomic war, […]

Moving Out – Literal couch co-op

Moving is never fun when you’re the one doing the heavy lifting. You don’t want to break the stuff you’re keeping. You don’t want to scuff up the floors or walls you’re leaving behind. You definitely don’t want to get your hopes up about a security deposit you’re going to be screwed out of no […]

Snowrunner Is The Strangest Driving Game I’ve Ever Played

Much like the previous entry Mudrunner, Snowrunner is a game that will either really suck you in or send you running for the hills. It requires dedication, patience, skill and a calm approach, and it’ll likely put off as many as it appeals to. Stick with it though, and there’s a strangely rewarding experience to be had. It […]

My Hero One’s Justice 2 – A Newbie Hero

Oftentimes, fighting games and anime franchises can go hand in hand. Just look at the various fighting games based off Dragon Ball for an example of that. And what anime should go better with the genre than My Hero Academia, a franchise all about super-powered fighters in the first place? If that sounds like something right up your […]

Pirate Warriors 4 – A cathartic, if not revolutionary, Musou experience.

In a world of chaos, uncertainty, and tension, I’m always happy when I can find something cathartic that allows me to escape, enter another world, and take out thousands of enemies with the push of a button. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 is an incredible candidate for this role. In my time going through some of the […]
