“Odin Sphere Leifthrasir” Review

With the release of the fantasy beat-em-up tribute Dragon’s Crown in 2013, Japanese developer Vanillaware finally became a major name in gaming, with the title going on to sell almost a million copies worldwide and in-turn outselling every other Vanillaware release up to that point.

“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 […]

Point-and-click adventure games have a tremendous history. In the early days of PC gaming, this genre was at the forefront offering up some of the most exciting and memorable romps available.

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.

“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

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.
