An unexpected, yet beautiful crossover…
Sometimes a crossover just feels natural. Sometimes you would never in your wildest dreams have pictured the two worlds together, but they fit so perfectly. This is one of those games. Warner Bros. is the publisher of the infamous Scribblenauts series and because of this, the team at 5th Cell was given access to the amazing world of DC Comics. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure has preserved the long running concept, “Write Anything, Solve Everything” and added thousands of characters and objects from the DC Universe to spice things up. Thanks to a review copy from WB Games, we got a chance to get a first hand look at the puzzle-solving action from the day of its release.
Scribblenauts made its debut on DS, but will the 3DS port of the franchise’s latest game stand up to its home console versions? Find out after the break. -Greg Boe (more…)
If you thought your dreams were weird, you haven’t met Luigi…
There are so many Mario games on Nintendo 3DS. In almost 3 years, Nintendo has already released 8 Mario game for the platform. Pretty much every type and genre of Mario is available or is going to be available on 3DS. Last month, Nintendo released Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Mario and his green garbed little bro have been through a lot together. They have explored outer space, competed in almost every existing sport, and even survived a trip to Bowser’s belly. These guys may be seasoned adventurers, but are they prepared to enter the dream world?
This game didn’t get much media attention, but it is definitely worth checking out. Continue reading for my review. -Greg Boe (more…)
What do you get when you combine firefighting action with the puzzle genre?
You can never go wrong with WayForward’s Mighty series. In each title, you can expect perplexing puzzle-style gameplay and a lovely female protagonist. Things haven’t changed with Mighty Switch Force! 2, the very first direct follow-up in the series of spiritual successors.
Is the lack of change a good thing? You might find yourself surprised by my conclusion. Find out in my review after the break. -Greg Boe (more…)
Most of the Gameboy Color games I’ve played were a lot more basic than Shantae.
I was in grade school when I first played this game. It was included on one of those old-school 50-in-1 GBC cartridges. Looking back at it now, I wonder if all those games were pirated… Dang it. To make up for my lingering 6th grade guilt, I decided to download a copy on my 3DS the week it was released on the Virtual console. Now that I’m older and in effect, a more experienced gamer, I could actually get further in this rather difficult adventure.
With two new Shantae games coming soon, I thought this would be a perfect time to look back at this GBC classic. Read on for my analysis. -Greg Boe (more…)
Nintendo turns over a new leaf in the social sim world.
The 3DS has done a great job at breathing life back into the universe of handheld gaming. While the handheld market has gone quite flat over the years, specifically around the DS/PSP era, this feisty new system is becoming quite the hot buy over in the states. Every time I go out with my Aqua Blue 3DS, I StreetPass at least 2 other owners, and usually end up visiting their town in the recently released Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I chose to wait a few months after release because I really wanted to focus on the title’s following. Like a lot of 3DS games, it took a little time to really heat up. Honestly there is just too much content to assess after just a week’s playtime.
Animal Crossing is one of those franchises that I can never get completely tired of. So far, none of the installments have seemed like direct rehashes of another. Sort of like the Super Mario games, the formula stays the same, but the developers add to (and sometimes fix) what was already there. While I played the previous entries in the series until I had my fill, I was still very excited to see what the latest game brought to the table.
If you are still debating whether or not to become a 3DS owner, or just want a game that will earn it’s place in your card slot for a very long time, you should consider reading my review. Check it out after the break. -Greg Boe (more…)
