  • 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. They looked a bit flimsy, and the way they functioned in games wasn't exactly mind-blowing. Being able to level up an A.I. character in Super Smash Bros... More

  • 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.

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate isn't the first game in the series I've tried to get into, but it's the one that finally stuck. Not only did MH4U suck me into it's world of perpetual gear upgrading and giant monster hunting ( read my review here ), it hooked GI editor Dan Tack as well . Dan... More
