  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 19, 2017 under Featured, Switch
    The first 10 minutes of Breath of the Wild cemented my feelings about this new iteration of the Zelda franchise. Never has Nintendo undergone such a massive scale open world title like this and if this is just the tip of the iceberg I am unabashedly excited for what comes next. From your first few moments in Hyrule you truly begin to understand just how “open” this world really is and the choi... more.
  • I Am Setsuna

    With a plethora of amazing games being released on every console over the past few months it is possible that you may have missed the launch of a little gem named I Am Setsuna. The best way to describe I Am Setsuna is to say that it is very similar in gameplay and mechanics to Super Nintendo Classic JRPG’s such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy II and Secret of Mana. If you are looking for someth... more.

    Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or sleeping for the last year in The Shrine of Resurrection, you are no doubt aware that Nintendo have bought out a new console and along with it a new Legend of Zelda game. The first Legend of Zelda appeared on the original Nintendo system in 1986, with nineteen main games since then (including Breath of The Wild) and a few spin off titles, it’s arguably... more.
  • 1,2 Switch Review

    When I first saw gameplay of 1,2 Switch I was oddly intrigued. So when I got my switch I was eager to pick up this game, what ensued was a large amount of disappointment.1,2 Switch is not that bad of a game, it just leaves you wanting more. No matter how you look at it, this game is purely a tech demo that shows off the features of the Nintendo Switch and ultimately should have been included as a ... 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.
  • Star Fox Zero Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 30, 2016 under Featured, Wii U Reviews
    Star Fox Zero should have been my game of the year. The Star Fox series is one close to my heart, this is the first major console installment since Star Fox Assault on the GameCube, and Nintendo collaborated with my favorite action studio of all time, Platinum Games, on this project. If there was anything more directly aimed at my personal taste for videogame nirvana condensed in a single experien... more.
  • Hyrule Warriors Legends Nintendo 3DS Review

    Two years ago, Koei Tecmo and Nintendo collaborated on a Warriors style game using the iconography of the Legend of Zelda series, aptly called Hyrule Warriors. I won't rehash my feelings on the game, if you want a refresher you can read my review here, and aside from one of the best implementations of a DLC season pass I've ever seen there isn't much to add about the original version. But not con... more.
  • Pokken Tournament Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 27, 2016 under Featured, Wii U Reviews
    For Pokemon fans big and small, Pokken Tournament is a dream come true. The sheer spectacle of watching identifiable characters from Nintendo's 20-year old franchise fully realized in a fighting game is presented so well it makes the wait worth it. As a fan of the series since it came to North America I was especially assaulted by nostalgia, seeing the likes of Pikachu and Charizard zap, claw, and... 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.
  • Is the Shovel Knight Amiibo Worth It?

    0 CommentsPosted by on January 16, 2016 under Nintendo, Feature Articles
    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.
  • LEGO Dimensions Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 15, 2015 under Featured, Wii U Reviews
    Editor's Note: This review is based off of the Starter Pack and the Portal 2 Level Pack. Said packs were bought out of pocket Unlike most lovers of the Skylanders or Disney Infinity series, I was always skeptical of the toys-to-life style of game. When companies utilize overpriced DLC or putting exploitive freemium elements in fully priced experiences, the idea of also tying plastic figures into ... more.

    Longstanding readers will know that I absolutely adored Shovel Knight, Yacht Club Games' first humble throwback to the Golden Age Platformer. The humble adventure premiered on the Wii U last year and went on to visit every other major console and handheld, complete with their own special modes and bonus levels. Shovel Knight has gone on to show up in other indie games, the studio is in the process... more.

    By the time you read this review, Super Mario Bros. will have celebrated its 30th Anniversary. Anyone can see a screenshot of any game in the series and instantly recognize the power-ups, the enemies, and the characters. It can not be understated just how ubiquitous and amazing the Mario series has been, all thanks to top-notch level design, elegance in appearance and gameplay, and one simple goal... more.
  • Yoshi’s Woolly World Nintendo Wii U Review

    Editors Note: This review was written by guest writer Kyle Dunn First off let me begin by saying I have played a massive amount of games in my youth and now in adulthood. None have deserved the title as the cutest game quite like this one. I didn’t play much of Nintendo’s first foray into a woollen world in Kirby’s Epic Yarn. But of what I did play, I can say that Yoshi’s Woolly World doe... more.
  • The Good and Bad of the Nindies of E3

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 25, 2015 under Nintendo, E3 Conference, Feature Articles, Nintendo
    So E3 has come and gone and there were quite a number of interesting things that came out of it. Mostly good, a few bad, and even one apparently controversial, but the thing about the conference is the news and content doesn't just stop at the big flashy shows and announcements. Take for example, Nintendo's Nindies@Home initiative. While major publishers showed off the more modest projects made b... more.
