Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8 Review

Mario Kart 8 is a fantastic looking game. It is probably the most crisp, sharpest looking game I’ve ever seen on any Nintendo console. Each track and their background scenery is all very vivid and almost lifelike, in a cartoonish Mario kind of way. LEGO City and Mario 3D both looked great, but Mario Kart 8…

New Super Luigi U

New Super Luigi U Review

New Super Luigi U is basically a rehash of New Super Mario Bros U (it originated as DLC for the Mario game), so I’ll be limiting this to a quick look over instead of a full-fledged review. So without further adieu, let’s get this mini show on the road. I can’t remember off hand if…

Lego City Undercover Review

Chase McCain returns to Lego City right after criminal mastermind and all around bad guy Rex Fury has escaped from prison. McCain is the… umm… man (?) that did most of the work to bring Fury to justice and lead to his arrest. The man that actually made that arrest was Marion Dunby, an incompetent…

Cool Spot

Cool Spot Review

It’s been a while since I last featured a video game in the QDR, so I’m going to remedy that by going retro with an SNES title that I used to play a TON of back when I was a kid… Cool Spot. Yes, a video game starring the red circle from the 7-Up logo.…

Bad News Baseball

Bad News Baseball Review

Bad News Baseball is a game I’ve wanted to see released on the Wii’s Virtual Console since the VC was first announced way back prior to the Wii’s release. It still hasn’t been released on the Wii VC, and it isn’t likely to be released for the Wii VC or any forthcoming Wii U VC. So I…

Nintendo Wii U

Nintendo Wii U Review

The next generation of game consoles began on November 18th with the release of Nintendo’s Wii U, and unfortunately for Nintendo their next gen console is comparable (slightly better) than the current generation of consoles from Sony and Microsoft. And that means that (if the rumored specs and developer talk is to be believed) when…

Donkey Kong Jr

Donkey Kong Jr. Review

This is the NES version of Donkey Kong Jr. played on the Wii Virtual Console, it has a few differences between the arcade version. Donkey Kong Jr. is of course the sequel to the hugely popular (in the 80s) Donkey Kong arcade game. The roles are reversed this time though. You don’t play as Mario…
