What can you buy with two dollars?
There’s a lot of stuff you can buy for only two dollars. For me, I would spend my last two bucks on a can of Monster Energy or put some more fuel in my Honda, which is great on gas. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to be able to buy a fun game for the same price? You bet it would. With all the other stuff I put my well-earned cash into, it’s always exciting to get a great game at a great price. Hörberg Studios recently released Gunman Clive to the Nintendo eShop, for the low price of $1.99.
Seeing the game’s price tag intrigued me, so I just had to give it a download. I mean, what’s two dollars? Read on for my mini review. -Greg Boe (more…)
There are not one, but two oversized reasons why you are reading this review.
One reason is your curiosity of whether or not this game is worth the download, and the other is sitting right above this text. It’s always great to see a game localized to the West. Some games, however, never make it the West due to cultural differences. I honestly never thought Senran Kagura would come to North America or Europe. In fact, I even listed the series in my “Games in Japan We’ll Probably Never See in the West” editorial. Well, contrary to my personal expectations, it is now available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
While it is a download-only title, it’s about the same price as a retail game. Are there enough reasons to purchase this game? Let’s find out. -Greg Boe (more…)

Ben 10 is back and is more action-packed than ever in D3Publisher’s latest game Ben 10 Omniverse 2. D3Publishers spared no expense at making this the biggest, baddest Ben 10 game yet. I grew up with the original series of Ben 10 and I haven’t seen anything from the Omniverse series, but man I was I stoked to get to test this game and relive a childhood memory.
D3Publisher is responsible for such games as Adventure Time “Hey Ice King why’d you steal our garbage!!?” and Regular Show’s “Mordecai & Rigby in 8-bit land” but can they recreate the magic of the original Ben 10 game from late 2012? Please keep reading to find out! - Dacotah D. (more…)
Just when you thought that LEGO couldn’t possibly crank out another game, BAM! Although with the recent marvel super hero craze I can’t say I didn’t see thing coming. LEGO Marvel Super heroes: Universe in Peril is an action packed super hero beat down that is enjoyable to say the least. It is very evident that LEGO and Warner Bros. did put a lot of time and effort into making this game, and it really does show. With good game play and a superb storyline LEGO has really out done itself this time. The LEGO series has been around longer than you might think. Quite a few of you may have grown up playing the same games I did like LEGO Star Wars. Some of you might even date back as far as LEGO Island.
Does LEGO find gold in a well that some may consider to have run dry? The answer might surprise you as much as it did me. Keep reading to find out. -Dacotah D. (more…)
Blackgate prison is under new management.
Every now and then when a big console game launches, a handheld side-story is released alongside. This is a clever strategy, but it usually doesn’t work out as well as anticipated. A few days back, Warner Bros. Interactive brought Batman: Arkham Origins to home consoles (including Wii U). This title takes place before the previous two adventures, and throws some crazy twists into the mix. On the same day, a follow-up was released on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita, titled Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.
How well did this sequel to a prequel turn out? What’s with the whole 2.5D sidescrolling thing? The answers lie within my review. -Greg Boe (more…)
Regular show: Mordecai & Rigby in 8-Bit land is a new side scroll-shooter/old school shooter game made exclusively for 3DS. In this challenging game you run and jump from platform to platform dodging enemies trying to collect cash and golden VHS tapes. This game is a good buy if you are fan of the show and have a love for challenging platforms.
Love Regular show? Have a love for platform and shooters? Then read on and see if this game is for you! -Spurgeon Farrell (more…)
SnowMoto Racing 3D is the recent Zordix title to hit the ever-expanding e-shop. The familiar cozy looking game might draw memories of last generations craze of ATV and MX racing style games, and it really does live up to what you would expect of a game from that genre with a few flaws to go with it. Is SnowMoto Racing 3D a reincarnation of the games that riddled the market a few years ago?
Also, does Zordix expand upon this genre and help bring it into the current generation of handheld gaming? Keep reading to find out -Dacotah Dudley (more…)
