Review: Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 (DS)

Pokémon has, for the most part, monopolized the modern turn-based rpg world. Other companies have been afraid to step onto to this field of gaming as the basic idea of making decisions for your followers and then waiting to see how it goes isn’t very appealing to the young generation of gamers. However, Square Enix, the makers of Dragon Quest, have taken a shot at challenging the monopolistic Pokémon. Does this game present a strong enough style and gameplay to combat the Pokémon system that gamers cling to so dearly? Keep reading to find out! -Ryan Baxter

Review: Cat Frenzy (DSiWare)

Over the last few years on the DSi Shop, there have been a slew of DSiWare titles. Some titles, like Shantae: Risky’s Revenge were true master pieces.  We highly recommend these.  Some… Not so much… Cat Frenzy has come out very close to the inevitable end of the Nintendo DSi’s life, so you could expect it to be a decent title, right? You’ll just have to wait and see! -Dallas B. Continue Reading →

Review: Flip The Core (DSiWare)

At first sight, Engine Software’s Flip the Core doesn’t look like much. While watching the trailers, it looked similar to classics like Galaga or Xevious. In my head I was thinking, “I can’t believe I’m downloading this”. So I download my game and unwrap it. On my first play-through, I played for maybe a half hour or more. Usually for me that means I’m enjoying it. I hadn’t even made it past the first level yet. So is Flip the Core worth downloading over the whopping amount of games to choose from?

Review: Professor Layton and the Last Specter (DS)

The Professor Layton series has always been known for its challenging puzzles, and captivating storyline.
