  • Blog Post: I Have A Picross Problem

    Picross is a simple little puzzle game from Nintendo that isn’t particularly well-known. It’s not affiliated with a mascot – or at least it hasn’t been since Mario Picross released on Game Boy in 1995 – and it’s not all that much different from Sudoku. It involves... More

  • Blog Post: Confessions Of An Amiibo Zealot

    When Nintendo first announced Amiibos, I was apathetic. I love figures as much as the next person, but these didn't seem particularly enticing.

  • Blog Post: Ignoring Amiibos And The Video Game Collector Itch

    Like most kids growing up, I only got a few games a year on birthdays or Christmas. I would inhale video game magazines to try and soak up information about every video game I could, confident I would only truly get to play a few.
