Romancing SaGa 3 (SNES)

Romancing SaGa 3 review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 07, 2013

Magic is generally bought in stores. At least I think it is… I never found much use for casting spells when I could use high-tier skills to erase thousands of hit points from enemies in a single attack. Since you regain all health after each battle, it's not like healing spells are all that useful, and characters tend to have 10 or more life points, which means they can fall that many times in battles before actually perishing. Thus, fights tend to be onslaughts of all-out offense until all the monsters are dead.

A Boy and His Blob review (NES)

Half adventure game, half falling-to-your-death simulator.

Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan (3DS)

Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan review (3DS)

Reviewed on March 06, 2013

Etrian Odyssey IV, the latest installment in the series and the first to appear on the 3DS, does an excellent job of adding convenience without sacrificing any of the franchise’s charms. And don’t worry: it’s still really difficult.

Mr. Gimmick (NES)

Mr. Gimmick review (NES)

Reviewed on March 02, 2013

Mr. Gimmick (also known as Gimmick! in the original Japanese version) is a creative NES platformer that few people have ever heard of. Strangely enough, the only place outside of Japan where the game saw release was Scandinavia.

Bulletstorm (PlayStation 3)

Bulletstorm review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 24, 2013

There’s so many options and rewards from killing creatively, that Bulletstorm becomes probably the only FPS where shooting someone in the face feels like you’re doing it all wrong.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 22, 2013

Some of the things which make combat so easy also add to its charm, because they make fights far more interactive than one would expect from a turn-based RPG. While tapping the attack button at the proper time during a character's turn will essentially make every blow they land a critical hit, it also adds to the fun, as this is one game where you won't be mindlessly tapping the attack button.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PlayStation 3)

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 19, 2013

It always seemed like a matter of time before we got a game like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I just figured that I would be playing it on the Wii. Instead, 1:1 swordplay has managed to find full expression with the tried and true analog control sticks of the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Generation of Chaos: Pandora's Reflection (PSP)

Generation of Chaos: Pandora's Reflection review (PSP)

Reviewed on February 18, 2013

Developers these days often try to pack as many features into their games as possible, but, for the most part, those features wind up feeling half-assed. In contrast, Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection emphasizes a single feature and streamlines everything else to accommodate it.

Dragon Quest VI: Maboroshi no Daichi (SNES)

Dragon Quest VI: Maboroshi no Daichi review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 17, 2013

And most importantly: once upon a time, three brave heroes advanced upon the castle of the fierce demon lord Mudo in an attempt to bring his reign of terror to an end. The foul beast was prepared, though, and cast a horrible spell that caused the heroic party members to be frozen momentarily in air before finally vanishing. In a bed in a remote village, the leader of the brave triumvirate wakes up… to what apparently is the same boring, rustic life he always has lived.

You can never accuse White Noise of being original, but that’s okay; it’s sure as hell effective.

Dungeonland (PC)

Dungeonland review (PC)

Reviewed on February 13, 2013

You might cackle at the fact that Critical Studio intentionally labeled the easiest difficulty setting as Hard, but that laughter won’t last for long. There will be livid grunting and even a runaway tear here or there, until you and your crew band together with heroic purpose. Teamwork is unquestionably the main draw of Dungeonland, and I absolutely love the game for it.

Aliens: Colonial Marines (Xbox 360)

Aliens: Colonial Marines review (X360)

Reviewed on February 13, 2013

I'll say this about Colonial Marines: had it been released a decade ago, it would have looked passable. The blocky modeling, muddy textures and embarrassing particle effects are all GameCube-quality, and the characters' complete lack of facial expressions would be acceptable in a world in which Half-Life 2 didn't come out over eight years ago.

Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!! review (3DS)

Reviewed on February 04, 2013

Jake and Finn's quest to retrieve their trash from the Ice King borrows a number of cool ideas from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, but the adventure doesn't last long enough to do anything substantial.

Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion (3DS)

Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion review (3DS)

Reviewed on February 03, 2013

Although the stages are large enough to be interesting, you’ll have to visit each one several times if you want to discover all of the castle’s secrets. You unlock life meter extensions and improvements to your various attacks by completing various side quests, so you might have a rough time defeating Mizrabel if you don’t seek out all of your potential allies (though perhaps not, since she’s not actually a difficult opponent).

Spyro the Dragon (PlayStation)

Spyro the Dragon review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 03, 2013

Level designs often pair different sorts of beasts and toss them into a compact space. In Alpine Ridge, you’ll face armored rooster people that try to smack you with their scepters. In the same general vicinity, you’ll also encounter grotesque bears and druids that have a habit of moving platforms around.
