  • Batman Arkham Origins Wii U Review

    1 CommentsPosted by on October 30, 2013 under Nintendo, Featured, 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 Nintendo, Featured, 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.
  • Bravely Default Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 1, 2014 under 3DS Reviews
    For many, Bravely Default will be the definition of “they just don't make them like this anymore” of JRPGs. It's Square Enix stepping back from the artistically gonzo and stupendously convoluted direction of the Final Fantasy series and returning to an old school fantasy adventure with a modern take on turn-based combat. It's a step back that has proven fruitful, since it has lead to an overal... more.
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on January 15, 2015 under Nintendo, Featured, Wii U Reviews
    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.
  • Codename: S.T.E.A.M. Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 20, 2015 under Featured, 3DS Reviews
    Intelligent System's newest game is definitely audacious. It's also a step out of their comfort zone. From superb tactical RPGs like Advance Wars and the Fire Emblem series to 3rd-person action mix. You wouldn't guess from just how confident the game presents itself as an alternative history steampunk world set in the 19th century about a covert order of protectors of the world, which somehow mana... more.
  • Deus Ex Human Revolution Director’s Cut Wii U Review – Augmented Enhancement

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 31, 2013 under Nintendo, Featured, 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 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 Nintendo, Feature Articles, Featured
    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 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

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 16, 2014 under Nintendo, Featured, Wii U Reviews
    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.
  • Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Snow Princess Nintendo Wii Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 26, 2012 under Nintendo, Wii Reviews
    Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Snow Princess is obviously based on the Dora the Explorer kids TV show. In this Dora Adventure Dora along with her monkey sidekick, Boots are wandering through a mysterious icy landscape to save the Snow Princess who after finding a gem and smiling into it to bring snow to the forest, was captured by an evil witch who wants the snow to melt. Is this game perfect f... more.
  • Dragon Quest 7 Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 2, 2016 under Featured, 3DS Reviews
    For many the Dragon Quest games have been the most enjoyable of the JRPG Genre ever since the NES days when they were first called Dragon Warrior. They got more and more popular as the series grew, especially with Akira Toriyama doing the designs of the characters and creatures alongside the rest of Square Enix. The music and graphic design is great like always and the character interaction is als... more.
  • E3 2015: Nintendo’s Digital Event and Show Reveals

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 21, 2015 under Nintendo, Press Releases, E3 Conference, Feature Articles, Nintendo
    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.
  • Fire Emblem Awakening Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 17, 2013 under Featured, 3DS Reviews
    The Fire Emblem series is a curiosity. Not many titles have been released by Nintendo outside of Japan, and yet it has developed an amazing cult following. This lax amount of release has left potential players, such as myself, out of the loop of what many consider to be one of the best games in the Strategy genre. Now, with the release of Fire Emblem Awakening, it is time to hop on board. Better l... more.
  • Fire Emblem Fates Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 27, 2016 under Featured, 3DS Reviews
    The Fire Emblem series has always been known for its aggressive tactical RPG combat. You had to plan each one of your moves carefully, because at any moment any of your allies could permanently die and cost you the game. What it wasn't known for was difficult moral decisions with longstanding consequences or having a single game broken up into different versions like Pokemon. So it's no surprise t... more.
