Games of the Last Decade Ranked – (Part 4)

Second verse, same as the first! It’s time to continue with our look back at the games that released in the last decade. As usual, if the game is on this list, it’s because it released sometime between January 1st, 2010 and December 31st, 2019, in addition to being a title that I have actually played. I apologize in advance […]

Games of the Last Decade Ranked – (part 1)

The time has come to take a look back at the games that have released. But instead of just looking at 2019 releases, I thought today we could take a walk down memory lane and look back at the games that released over the last decade. Now I’d like to establish a few things. I realize that there was no […]

First Impressions: Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!

Ad·ven·ture. Noun. Aimlessly plodding through eventless dungeon after eventless dungeon.

First Impressions is a close look at the crucial first hour spent with a game and its’ ability to draw you in or turn you away. Somewhere between a review and a preview. Ugh, the dirge of licensed titles. History has, unfortunately, shown us that no studio, no creator and no IP is exempt from half-hearted attempts to cash in […]

Dr. Geek: Getting to Know the Nintendo Wii U

One of the first posts I wrote for CBR addressed the next gen — 8th generation — video game consoles.  At the time, a whole year ago, all we knew for certain was the next gen coming from Nintendo, the Wii U.  Anything on Sony and Microsoft’s updates to their respective PlayStation and Xbox offerings were purely speculative.  Since then, […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 30 – Asphalt 3D – Better than expected?

Dear Journal, Today I played a game that didn’t seem THAT bad but we’ve all heard horrible things about. Asphalt 3D is interesting in that it is actually a 3DS port of a iOS game originally designed for iPhones and the like and used as one of Ubisoft’s launch titles for the 3DS.  I usually try to stay clear of […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 21 – Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion – 90’s kid at heart

Dear Journal, Today I rescued most of Disney’s famous characters from an evil witch. Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is sort of a sequel to the classic Castle of Illusion game, as well as a sequel to Epic Mickey: Power of Two. Mickey has been called to a castle in order to save Minnie, a castle that is vaguely familiar […]

Backlog Quest II: Day 13 – Brave (NDS) – Gingers are people too!

Dear Journal, Today I learned that gingers are people too, just tiny, pixilated people. So we have a movie-tie-in game for a children’s movie on the DS here. Now, you’re saying to yourself that you shouldn’t expect much from it, after all, that is like the be-all end-all list of bad signs for a game going in. You’d be mostly […]
