  • Review - The Alliance Alive (3DS)

    Light, Fluffy Fun

    More
    Light, Fluffy Fun As a Japanese RPG, The Alliance Alive is pretty accessible. The tone is upbeat and positive, but it never spills into saccharine territory. The story uses familiar tropes, but it also contains a unique world and a variety of characters... More

    Now that Mario Kart is one of Nintendo’s top selling franchises , some might wonder what the point of a new F-Zero game would be. Never mind that the series has a completely different setting and some deep, deep lore, but even Nintendo luminaries... More

  • A Gaming Life: Pt. 2 - Ten Games That Changed Me Forever

    Some games change us. They help inform what we like and dislike. They help us understand ourselves. More broadly, some games can inspire us. In some instances, they can even change our lives. Many people, if they looked back on the games that affected... More
  • Review - Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology (3DS)

    1

    Often seen as just a niche publisher, Atlus is secretly one of the most prolific voices in gaming. For over thirty years, their development teams in Japan, as well as their localization and publishing branch in the States, have a track record that is almost unmatched. With games released on almost every major system since the late 1980’s, including Jack Bros. on the Virtual Boy, they’ve seen their fair share of successes, failures, and cult hits.

    More
    Far Cry 5 is an interesting experiment in trying to appear topical, but falling short in every aspect. I’m not here to reiterate the much discussed toothless politics of the game; that’s been done plenty. What I would like to highlight however... More

    Everyone has gaming sins. Whether it’s leaving discs out to gather dust and scratches, screen-cheating, or ignoring that super popular game everyone loves, we all have those little sins that surprise others. “Sin” may be a strong word... More
  • A Gaming Life: Pt. 2 - Shenmue is Better Compared to Telltale Than GTA

    More

    Shenmue is old, but it’s not the boogeyman. Though the franchise can only be accessed on Dreamcast (and Xbox, in North America), it’s an extremely important franchise, and definitely worth going back to play today. But not for the reason you... More

    In light of the fact that we’ll be seeing the 3DS around into 2019 , there’s plenty of time to hope for a localization or two. However, since what we know of the future of the system is pretty clear , now is a good time to check back in the... More

    Color me surprised. And absolutely and completely wrong. I was convinced that the 3DS was done. That we were seeing the end unfold before us. That development had stopped, and Nintendo was just releasing the last of their projects as they learned to let... More
  • A Gaming Life: Pt. 2 - Let's Talk About the Secret of Mana Remake (PS4)

    Until then, I hope you’ll join me in asking that the Collection on Switch gets localized. As for the Secret of Mana remake. Well, honestly, it’s best just left alone.

    More
    Note: While I’ll be talking in depth about the game and its flaws, I don’t want to call this a true review because I’ve been unable to check out the three-player local co-op. The co-op in the original game is one of its unique features... More

    For the second year in a row, I’ve played through Wolfenstein: The New Order twice, back to back. Last year it was on PS3, and it was great. I don’t believe it suffered being a last-gen version of a multiplatform game. This time, I’ve... More
