  • Review: Tales of the Abyss

    0 CommentsPosted by on December 19, 2012 under Featured, Reviews
    The Tales of series has been running since 1994, and in that time no less than 22 titles (including spin offs). As tends to happen with these kinds of games, they rarely get ported over to Europe and in fact we have only had a handful to ever make it, and those sell like hot cakes so nabbing a copy is almost impossible. Tales of the Abyss is a port of a PS2 title that never made it over, so right ... more.
  • Retro Review: The Legend of Zelda

    Imagine waking up in a world that you know nothing of, with only a sword in your hand and a vast kingdom to explore at your own leisure. The freedom to go where you want, when you want and do whatever you want whether that be continue to the quest, delve into the darkest abyss or simple fight monsters. No, I am not talking about Skyrim...I am talking about the 25 year old classic that changed the ... more.
  • Review: Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

    When Professor Layton debuted on the DS way back when, it completely changed what people thought was possible in a puzzle game. Layton and friends are back, and this time they are appearing on the 3DS for the first time. Layton and co. are called to the miraculous, and somewhat fictitious city of Monte D'or by a friend from Laytons mysterious past. The city is being ravaged by a masked characte... more.

    Mario and friends are back for their 6th installment in the Mario Tennis series, and unfortunately the series has taken one too many steps back in this new 3DS title from Camelot. Mario Tennis Open has you playing through a plethora of tournaments as your favorite characters from the Mario Universe in an attempt to grab the much sought after trophy at the end. Its a typical sports game setup th... more.
  • Review: Paper Mario Sticker Star

    The next installment to the much loved Paper Mario series has finally arrived, and this time it has found its home on the 3DS. Paper Mario is an interesting concept, it takes the underlying Mario formula, makes everything out of cardboard and paper (essentially 2D) then makes it a 3D Mario game with a turn based battle system. It is a formula that has had some slight tweaks over the years, an... more.
  • Review: New Super Mario Brothers 2

    Mario has been jumping around like a maniac for over 25 years now, and boy have we loved him. Mario is so big in fact, that when you look at the numbers, people who play Call of Duty are actually a minority in the gaming world...needless to say, this fat Italian plumber is a popular icon. Once again Mario is back to save the kingdom, defeat the dark forces in his way and get the girl...but is this... more.
  • System Comparison: 3DS vs XL

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 28, 2012 under Reviews
    The original 3DS had a bit of a shaky launch last year, with a great initial line up followed by a devastating dead patch. This naturally hurt sales, and for the first time in history, Nintendo made a loss! Now that there are games growing out of its ass, sales are on par with the DS, and Nintendo are promising even more in the future, they have released the XL. Is the XL worth the pick up, or sho... more.
  • Review: Mario Kart 7

    Mario Kart has always been the pinnacle of arcade Kart racing, and MK7 follows the trend. The latest game has some new features, some revitalised old ones and a whole lot of content that could make this the best kart game in history. The single player portion of the game is split into 4 categories: Grand Prix, whereby you are racing in an 8 player race over 32 courses split into 8 championships... more.
  • Review: XCOM Enemy Unknown

    Back in 1994, MicroProse released the cult phenomenon XCOM Enemy Unknown (also known as UFO Defense). This alien hunting, squad based strategy game is considered one of the found fathers of the entire genre, and has since spawned endless clones on various platforms. 11 years after the last entry to the series, 2K games and Firaxis have teamed up to revitalize the venerable series, and my god hav... more.
  • Review: Painkiller Hell and Damnation

    I feel first person shooters have been in decline for a very long time. It is all Call of Duty, Battlefield, or some other humdrum affair. Everything feels restrained, generic, and pretty damn boring pretty much all the time. Gone are the days when players and enemies ran at 100 miles per hour, you could carry 50 guns at a time or when you could literally defy physics by jumping repeatedly. Well, ... more.
