Teyon has brought us many games on the Nintendo eShop, but this is their first rhythm game. Groove Heaven just released on the eShop today, and thanks to Teyon, I’ve been able to write-up a review for all of you readers. I know previous games from the developer have gotten a generally bad rep, but it look like this game could change that. I mean, everyone loves a story about a demon falling in love with a goddess, right?
Wow, what a game. After over a month of playing (and finally beating) Intelligent System’s Fire Emblem Awakening, I think I’ve gathered enough experience to write a proper review. Sure, I could have written a review right after it came out, but a ton of other publications did that, so I decided just to take my time and review the game mostly for it’s gameplay, replay value, and customization. I’m also mega lazy, if you haven’t noticed.

Paper Mario has been a delightful series full of merriment and excitement–not to mention a whole lot of paper. There have been a lot of mixed opinions regarding the recent publication of the latest installment, Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Many publications have criticized the game for lacking a full storyline, and for using mostly Toads as NPCs. Are there any redeeming qualities in this game? You bet. Since you’ve probably heard the negative reviews by now, this analysis will focus mostly on the reasons this game is still worth buying. -Greg Boe (admin)

Last year, Nintendo gave Mario fans four fresh Mario titles, three of which were exclusive to 3DS. One of these was a follow-up to a DS favorite, New Super Mario Bros. I’ve seen some diverse opinions on this game, so I decided to try it out for myself. Fortunately, there was a pre-owned copy over at GameStop, so I picked it up, just so I could write my evaluation on it. Seriously, you should feel really fantastic that I spent $34.99 for this review, just for you. Since I didn’t get this one for free, you can be confident that I’m not being biased about Nintendo; one thing I get accused of a lot.

Tennis is a fun pastime that is often thought of as a game of the wealthy and is often ignored for one reason or another. Many take on the roll of Federer hidden behind a screen, but some wish for a more lackadaisical form of the common sport. An obvious alternative is the Mario Tennis Open, a game filled with the characters we once used to jump on mushrooms but have recently become aficionados of the athletics world. I’ve prepared a few words on this title for you, our loyal viewers.

Are you looking for a good game to download from the eShop? Well I’m pretty sure you’re only willing to spend your money on a game that will keep you entertained. Maybe you have heard of the game Pushmo from one of your friends, and heard it’s a good game. Maybe you’ve played Pushmo, but you’re probably wondering the same thing, “Should I download Crashmo?” This is exactly what this review will help you decide.

Sometimes I want to play a game that’s fun, but won’t draw me in for hours on end, due to my eventful agenda. When Nintendo sent us Crosswords Plus for the Nintendo 3DS eShop, I just knew it was the one. Following a day of work, I downloaded the game and played for about 5 minutes, and then went home. It’s the perfect game to play while waiting in line or riding the bus, due to the bite-sized portions of gameplay. It’s a really enjoyable pick-up-and-play game, but how does it play in longer periods of time?

Being a fan of Pokèmon for the past couple years (estimating around 2-3 years) I have a had a lot of learning to do. For example, I always had a big problem on trying to figure out which type of moves were super effective and which moves were not so effective at all and also know at what levels the Pokèmon will evolve into the stronger Pokèmon. With the eShop download Pokèdex 3D Pro you will not have that problem either. -Bobby M. (more…)
As some of you may know, I recently spent some time overseas in Japan. This country had so much to offer, including the incredible photo-booths that make anyone look like Marilyn Monroe. These seemingly magic cameras are a common hangout for girls and can be found all throughout Japan. They have been a fun activity that I have missed dearly since my return to the states, but recently I was given the opportunity to review the title Sparkle Snapshot 3D, which brings the magic of a Japanese photo booth into your 3DS! The only question is does this constitute a wide enough game to be enjoyed by a worldwide audience? Keep reading to find out! -Ryan Baxter (more…)
Japan is awesome. True story. I’ve been dying to visit Japan since I was a child, and it’s been a huge goal for me to someday visit the country. Level-5’s Liberation Maiden takes place in the distant future, where Japan has fallen and a new source of energy takes over. As the second president of New Japan, Shoko and her Liberator take flight to take down all that stands in the way of bringing peace back to this beautiful country and her people. With the North American presidential elections only a day away, I thought this was a great time to publish my review on this unique and exhilarating title. What makes this 3DS eShop game different from the other great titles out there? Find out after the break. -Greg Boe (admin) (more…)
