“Monster Hunter Generations” Review

“Monster Hunter Generations” Review

Despite borrowing significant content from previous games in the franchise, Monster Hunter Generations is faster, flashier, and more satisfying than ever. If you weren’t into Monster Hunter before, however, Generations won’t do much to win you over.

“Pokémon Sun” & “Pokémon Moon” Review

“Pokémon Sun” & “Pokémon Moon” Review

It’s been 20 years since the Pocket Monsters (or Pokémon) have burst onto the scene. What started out as a handheld game has seen unprecedented mainstream appeal and while the fad has considerably died down, 2016 saw sort of a renaissance of Pokémania with the launch of Pokémon Go, which still stands as the ninth highest grossing app in the App Store. Despite the mobile game’s popularity, traditional handhelds have always been the true home of the series, and fans have […]

Nintendo Switch Presentation coming 1/12; hands-on events also coming

Nintendo has just announced that they will hold a Nintendo Switch Presentation open to invited media, financial analysts, and trade partners in Tokyo that’ll be livestreamed on January 12, 2017. This, in all likelihood, confirms the rumors that no other information about Nintendo’s home console will be unveiled until the next calendar year. Nintendo Co., Ltd. president Tatsumi Kimishima also announced that Nintendo Switch sampling events for invited media, partners, and consumers will take place in the U.S. and Europe […]

E3 2016: Nintendo Treehouse Recap

E3 2016: Nintendo Treehouse Recap

A few weeks ago, Nintendo said they’d be heading to E3 with the prime focus on the latest Zelda title for Wii U. As unbelievable as it is, that was indeed the case for Day 1, and the only way they’d impress anybody is if Zelda hit it out of the park. As far as we’re concerned, Zelda hit a grand slam.

“Fire Emblem Fates” Review

“Fire Emblem Fates” Review

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Nintendo franchise as red hot as Fire Emblem right now.  What started out as a pipe dream thanks to the appearances of Marth’s and Roy’s characters in Super Smash Bros. Melee has turned into much more than a cult-following with characters making appearances in games like Project X Zone 2 and the upcoming exclusive, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. The release of Fire Emblem: Awakening on the 3DS a couple years ago exceeded expectations and is now […]

New Nintendo Selects titles unveiled?

New Nintendo Selects titles unveiled?

Tweets by @VideoGamesPlus_ Retailer VideoGamesPlus tweeted today that they’ll be stocking new “Nintendo Selects” titles on March 11, 2016. Notorious for hardly ever formally dropping prices on their games, Nintendo Selects are no different from Sony’s “Greatest Hits,” a collection of exclusive titles with lower prices, which are also given new cover art indicating their “select” status. Though Nintendo hasn’t yet officially confirmed the move, we have reason to believe this will be officialized soon as this isn’t something for a source to normally […]

“Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam” Review

“Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam” Review

Nintendo is in quite the envious position when it comes to Mario games.  There’s the flagship games like New Super Mario Bros. U, party games like Mario Party and Mario Kart, and then of course there’s the two RPG brands they have in Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario. With Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, Nintendo gives us a look at what it would be like to combine the best of both worlds, and they did for the most part. Unfortunately, […]

“The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, Master Quest” Concert Review

“The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, Master Quest” Concert Review

They say “the third time’s the charm,” but what if the first two instances were already awesome? Just as the roofs started to frost over, and the days became holidays, I had the opportunity to attend The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses for the third time. This time, it was for the “Master Quest,” and it was more awesome that it ever has been.

Danreb’s Top 10 Games of 2015

My name is Danreb Victorio.  After more than 11 months of gaming, I post here with only one goal: to tell you about 2015’s best games.  I’ve played many games during this year’s crusade, but there were ten I believe were better than anything else.  They were something else.
