    Yesterday, I claimed that Nintendo is just rehashing the same game over and over again. While the merits of that statement will be argued in another blog, that’s not what I’m here for today. No, today I will be looking back at the usual suspects... More

    It’s no secret that Nintendo isn’t doing the best this year. From the prediction of Wii U units moved from 9 million to 2.8 million to the strikingly low sales of the Wii U library, Nintendo is losing popularity fast. Aside from the debateable... More

    When Playstation All-Stars came out, it was labeled as nothing more than a two-bit Super Smash Brothers ripoff. It’s true that this game shares many things with Nintendo’s fighting franchise, but which one is better? Today I will be looking... More

    At first glance, Don’t Starve was just another Minecraft knockoff. Yet as I progressed through the game, I realized this is a completely different experience from Notch’s building game. Don’t Starve is a game based more on exploration than survival. The great fun of this game is exploring the world and seeing what crazy monsters or items you will encounter. Seeing this game all come together was truly a magical moment for me.

The franchise is already primed for a videogame, it has action not unlike God of War, plenty of unique demons, and copious amounts of grand set pieces. If the industry need to make one Anime or Manga into a great video game someday, this would be one of the best possible choices.
