Those Lucky Japanese...



Sakurai's latest Post of the Day on Miiverse might have been a shocker if you hadn't been following your Super Smash Bros. news on September 9th. About six hours before Sakurai's PotD, the first stories were breaking of Japan having a demo for the upcoming game.

The Demo contains several of the menu screens Mr. Sakurai has been recently revealing in his updates, with five brawlers being available to...

Pixel Puzzle Perfection

Released earlier this year, the original Tappingo delivered a streamlined, yet addicitve, fun puzzle game for 3DS owners at a budget price. Quickly attempting to replicate the success original, Goodbye Galaxy Games developed and released Tappingo 2; a sequel of sorts, one which offers more of what made the original great along with some minor improvements.

A puzzle...

Which game was the best? You decide!

Thinking back on Mario Kart's start, you have to wonder how the series became the hit franchise it is today. The premise of the game was strange at best; with platforming and arcade characters racing around tracks, throwing bananas at each other from boxes on the ground, Mario Kart was certainly an odd idea.

Thankfully for everyone, Nintendo knew what they...

Fight like a Demon, Sting like a Typo
Demon King Box is the kind of game that wouldn't have made it to release until recent years; with a professional feel meeting a budget price point, Circle Entertainment would have had trouble releasing a game like this to a market which didn't exist for these games. Thankfully for us, modern platforms like the eShop exist, and allow us to experience smaller games we...

Soaring High Amongst the Competition
Raise your hand if you have ever heard of the original Thorium Wars? It's ok if you haven't, the DSiWare game launched back in 2009, and sported a 1000 Nintendo Points price tag. At the time, this was the first game to go above 800 points on DSiWare, and was rather controversial. Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter is available for $7.99, and while the price drop compared to the original...

Steam Powered Classic



Steel Empire is a shoot 'em up classic from the 16-Bit era, gloriously remade for the 3DS, and ported to the North American eShop by Teyon. There is no disputing whether or not this is a good game, but the real question is whether or not it is worth the asking price. Teyon is charging $30 USD for this steampunk shooter, and if the game is worth that price or if Teyon is asking for the moon is up to the buyer.

A work of art

It is also $7.99 in US Dollars. It requires 941 Blocks on your 3DS SD Card to download. But the main question is, is Comic Workshop worth the $7.99? Well, if you want to know, keep reading.

Don't Mess Up That Chopper Foxx!



Strike Force Foxx feels as if it was taken straight out of an 80's action film and put on to a game console. The plot is just as cheesy as one might suspect, along with all of the main characters falling into stereotypes, but does the game have enough fresh content to rescue itself?

You play as Captain Foxx, a cocky helicopter pilot who has been called in to rescue hostages captured by a terrorist...

His Body is Ready



One simply doesn't mess with the Regginator. After showing gamers what he and his robot doppelganger are capable of at E3 2014 this should be more well known than ever. Thankfully, that didn't stop Microsoft's Phil Spenser from challenging Reggie to a dousing with ice water

This particular challenge has been rather popular recently, with the goal to raise public awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)...

Freedom of the Skies
A welcomed new occurrence to the Nintendo eShops are budget titles, whether it be Blok Drop U or Bird Mania Christmas 3D. Joining these ranks is SKYPEACE, a brief, enjoyable stage based runner that finds players surfing the skys, and battling aliens, attempting to stop an invasion.
Or at least thats what we could gather from the story, it isn't mentioned once in the game, or...

A really colorful game

Color Zen is a new type of puzzle game made by Crypronia. It was released on the Wii U eShop on May 15th, 2014. Like the case with Color Zen Kids, it was originally on the App Store, but was ported to the 3DS and Wii U eShops later on. It is a great game for those who are into puzzle games or at a young age. It has color-themed puzzles, and many vibrant and bizzare color puzzles at that. I could go on about the history of Color Zen and other info...

For a game with such a wide variety...

Treasure of the Deep


With Nintendo's much improved eShop service on the Wii U and 3DS have come many new and exciting possibilities. One such example is the porting of popular mobile titles to Nintendo's machines. The subject of today's review is one such game. Is Squids Odyssey worth your time, or should it have stayed on mobile platforms?
