  • Batman Arkham Origins Wii U Review

    1 CommentsPosted by on October 30, 2013 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Arkham Origins being a game doomed to high expectations is an understatement. After the genuinely amazing Arkham Asylum and equally brilliant follow-up, Arkham City, the very capable Rocksteady Studios aren't behind this installment. Instead, Warner Bros. has handed the game to their Montreal studio, which has caused much contention among the fans. This being Warner Bros. Montreal's first major pr... more.
  • Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 29, 2014 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    In 2009, Platinum Games' Bayonetta became one of the newest benchmarks of high adrenaline action brawler games and a pleasant mainstream success for the team. It didn't sell as much as the newest Call of Duty but thanks to some watertight combat and an entire marketing campaign showing off Bayonetta, both in terms of sex appeal and her ability to kick tail, an audience came. When you have very elo... more.
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Nintendo Wii U Review

    Nintendo really knows how to give their characters identity outside of their respective franchises. Luigi gets to bust ghosts inside a haunted mansion. Yoshi gets his own adventures where he protects Baby Mario and scarfs down fruit. Donkey Kong protects his own entire island from evil reptiles. And now it's Toad's turn with his very own standalone puzzle game. Does it have enough substance for it... more.
  • Deus Ex Human Revolution Director’s Cut Wii U Review – Augmented Enhancement

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 31, 2013 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Chances are if you are an RPG enthusiast worth your salt, you have heard of Deus Ex. The cyberpunk, conspiracy-laden action RPG experience first erupted on PC in 1999 and later on the Playstation 2, and is still to this day the ultimate standard in organic level design and player choice. Its influence can be felt even now in modern game experiences from Dishonored to Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Two ... more.
  • Disney Epic Mickey Nintendo Wii Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 27, 2012 under Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii Reviews
    I’ve never been a fan of Disney. Not of the classic range of kids cartoons and especially not of the new-age Disney range of teeny shows about pop stars, presidents and witches. They simply don’t appeal to me. But one cannot deny the cultural impact of the Disney greats; Mickey Mouse in particular. And because of this legacy, I found myself intrigued and interested to discover the world of Wal... more.
  • Does It Hold Up?: Xenoblade Chronicles

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 18, 2015 under Feature Articles, Featured, Nintendo Wii
    Welcome to a new mini-series on AAG. When the dust settles, the hype dies down, and all of the acclaimed awards for presentation at a show are forgotten because the stuff shown wasn't in the final version and was just elaborate smoke and mirrors, what is left is the game you got convinced to buy. The campaign is complete, the world is saved, all of the trophies and achievements are acquired. But a... more.
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns Nintendo Wii Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 27, 2012 under Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii Reviews
    Most modern day remakes of classic games try to change a lot. They add dimensions, characters, gameplay mechanics, and needless to say, a lot of these remakes are failures in the eyes of those who grew up the olds. Donkey Kong Country Returns is the latest is a long running trend of Nintendo to continue production on many classic gaming series from their hay days of the late 80’s and 90’s. Las... more.
  • Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze Wii U Review

    Let me just start off this review by saying Oh My God (Insert Famous Blonde from Hollywood’s voice). I have not played a DK game since Donkey Kong 64 and in a large way I’m thankful for that. It has made me appreciate this game a heap more. For a side scrolling platformer you are offered a huge amount of variety. One minute you’re swinging across platforms, the next you're swimming with dan... more.

    Of course, no E3 conference is complete without talking about Nintendo, one of the oldest companies still making video games and has some of the most iconic intellectual properties in the industry. Just like last year, Nintendo didn't have a large, lavish, live show with a bunch of scripted gameplay slices and speeches, but instead opted for a small, humble Digital Event showcase to unveil their l... more.

    Let me get this out in the open, when they announced they were making GoldenEye I danced the jig in my lounge room and celebrated like it was 1997, I imagined sleepless nights of playing against old roommates and friends. Yes I am a fan boy. I love GoldenEye and everything it did for the first person shooter genre. It is the long awaited reimagining of the Nintendo 64 classic for the Wii. Is this ... more.
  • Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 2, 2014 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    When Hyrule Warriors was announced, I tilted my head in confusion. One of the most beloved fantasy adventure franchises in all of gaming was going to get a spin-off in the vein of the famously dismissed button masher that is the Dynasty Warriors series? It sounded like a stunt and an excuse for fan service more than a fresh idea from the Big N. Fast-forward to the game's release and it is exactly... more.
  • Is the Shovel Knight Amiibo Worth It?

    In case you didn't pick up on this, I really enjoy Shovel Knight. I love the characters, I love the level design, I love the art direction, I even love the free update where you get to play as one of the boss characters. Yacht Club Games has made an absolutely joyous experience, have plans to keep supporting it with free content, and are also notably the first third-party to license and manufactur... more.
