The juggernaut that is Nintendo struck gold again last year with the release of the NES Classic Edition. Upon launch it was already sold out and became the video game collecting equivalent of Moby Dick for many a collector. Last September it all happened again with the launch of the SNES Classic Edition. With the … Continue reading Nintendo’s Classic Edition Consoles: Where Do They Fit In?
Our favourite video game retailer has had their fair share of shenanigans in the past when it comes to selling used or rather "refurbished" games and consoles, but this by far takes the proverbial cake. While browsing on the EB Games Canada website I was caught off guard by what I saw. I noticed that … Continue reading Dear EB Games… Are You Serious About This?
I should mention first and foremost that the purpose of this post is not to comment on the game itself but instead the retail release of Sonic Mania only. The only thing I will say about the game is that while it is fun, it is incredibly easy and lacks that little something special … Continue reading Lackluster Collector’s Editions: Sonic Mania… Just Meh
I gotta say... good job Nintendo! I absolutely enjoyed this game! I only have two faults with this game, but that will be addressed later on. First things first, I absolutely love the character of Chibi-Robo and to get to adventure with him again is greatly appreciated. The platforming is easy to accomplish with Chibi-Robo's … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Chibi-Robo Zip Lash ***Rating 4/5***
So it has been a few weeks since Super Mario Maker was released for the Wii U and I feel like I have given it ample attention to give a well rounded review of the whole game. Nintendo has yet again produced a game that is good, but will only get better with time. To … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Super Mario Maker ***Rating 3.5/5***
Now don't be mistaken by the low rating, I do not think that this is a bad game in any capacity. I will go into further detail as to why my rating is so low later on but I thought it'd be better to start off with the aspects of this game that I enjoyed. … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition ***Rating 2.5/5***
My enjoyment of this Free-to-Play game for the 3DS family of systems came to a quick end once I noticed some fairly large faults. Other than the fact that this game is merely a clone of Bejewelled, with slightly tweaked gameplay, the first thing that got me was how long it took to regenerate lives … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Pokemon Shuffle ***Rating 3/5***
Even though there have been over 20 main series Pokémon titles, including the remakes, in my opinion the release of these two games were the most anticipated of all! for years people had been asking for a Hoenn Region remake game, and we finally got it just a few days ago on the 21st of … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire ***Rating 4.5/5***
Fantasy Life is one of the latest RPGs to be released for the Nintendo 3DS and whats the first thing that comes to mind? meh... While the game is not terrible, by any stretch of the imagination, its also not great. Story is nearly nonexistent in this game, even though there is a story to … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Fantasy Life ***3.5/5***
Curtain Call is proving to be even better than its predecessor. Curtain Call features the exact same rhythm based gameplay as the first entry into the series but this time Square Enix has changed up how the game is played. In a positive move, at least in my opinion, they have decided to go for … Continue reading Review Time! with Dragondude2525: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call ***4/5***
