New Super Luigi U Review

September 11, 2013 // 0 Comments

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 we had a review for Super Mario Bros U, but I [...]

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse Review

September 10, 2013 // 1 Comment

The original Castle of Illusion, released in 1990 for Sega Genesis, remains a timeless classic for a lot of gamers who grew up playing it. It was never the hardest platformer, nor the longest or the best, but it was fun and it had a certain charm to it even for those of us who aren’t fans of Mickey Mouse. Now, thanks to SEGA Studios Australia, [...]

Cool Spot Review

October 8, 2012 // 5 Comments

I never owned a SEGA Dreamcast, so I get to come into this review with no nostalgia whatsoever for what Sonic Adventure 2 was originally like over a decade ago on the Dreamcast. Nor, prior to this, have I ever played a 3D Sonic game that I actually enjoyed (and I loved the first three Sonic games on the Genesis, with Sonic 2 being my favorite [...]

LIMBO Review

July 20, 2011 // 1 Comment

Limbo was released July of last year on Xbox LIVE Arcade, and it garnered a lot of attention and praise. It had my interest, but I didn’t have an Xbox 360. Thankfully, a year later, Limbo hit the Playstation Network today and I have finally gotten to experience the wonderful indie game that is Limbo. Limbo is a “simple” 2D [...]
