Review: 50 Pinch Barrage!! (3DS eShop)
Tue Jul 28, 2015 11:00 am by Zalbet
Masochist Barrage

There is an increasingly large number of games saturating the market which rely on nostalgia to perform well.

Review: My Style Studio: Notebook (Wii U eShop)

Better off with real Paper




My Style Studio: Notebook is more of an app for the Wii U than a game, as it lets you draw in a virtual book. While not the most thrilling of eShop releases, it attempts to fill a small gap of opportunity for users looking to draw on their Wii U system.

No Spell Check Required




With a name like Typoman, what type of game could this be? An educational adventure for kids teaching them about spelling? A beat 'em up where you play as a hero who attacks grammatically incorrect bad guys? Try a Wii U exclusive platformer where you use words to solve puzzles. Didn't see that one coming did you?
