Cutiebots is a platform title that introduces us to Gritch and Zitch, two adventurers who are attempting to survive in a land filled with evil robots an unforgiving terrain. Players can assume either identity with the touch of a button, and it's this dynamic drew me to this promising app. Whether the game is as good as advertised depends on your level of patience.
Zombies are everywhere these days. Something about the undead has made them part of the zeitgeist, and with more movies, television shows and books also comes more zombie video games. Such was the case with the Xbox One's launch library, and the exclusive Dead Rising 3. Developed by Capcom, the third entry in the successful zombie survival series has more zombies than ever before. It's also got a goofy, but engaging story, and some insanely fun combat. Maybe there's something to the zombie hype after all.
Peggle 2. It’s more Peggle. Go and buy it now. Review over.
There's nothing quite like a new Mario adventure to get you excited to turn on your Nintendo console. From the Wii's Super Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros. franchises, to the 3DS' Super Mario 3D Land, we've had a wealth of platforming fun to enjoy these past few years. Though the Wii U received its first Mario title last year (as well as an excellent expansion this summer), it's this year's Super Mario 3D World that's gotten our attention. For the first time, multiplayer has been added to the 3D Mario formula, and the result is a wonderful success.
The latest adventure starring Link is The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, a sequel to 1991's The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. This new journey features a new iteration of Link, Princess Zelda, the Master Sword and all of the trappings you've come to expect from a Legend of Zelda game, but with several improvements that makes this perhaps the best top-down Zelda game ever released.
I love freebies as much as the next person, but many free to play games are encumbered with advertisements and in-app purchases. Band Star attempts to make beautiful music in a freemium universe, ushering a melody which we might actually want to hear.
Live the code- the code of the Dragon! Double Dragon Trilogy brings with it all of the punching, hopping, grimacing action of the original side-scrolling beat 'em up. Modern gamers have grown hungry for somewhat more sophisticated gameplay than what you'd find in the '80s, so know that your satisfaction with Double Dragon Trilogy may be directly tied to your nostalgia factor, and how radically heinous or un-heinous you are.
About a year and a half ago, Rainbow Moon, a strategy RPG in the style of classic grid based games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea, released on the PS3. It had a… let’s say lukewarm reception. Its story was shallow, its animations were stiff, and its gameplay was overly focused on grinding. It wasn’t without its good points however. The graphics themselves were fun and cartoony and the game could be quite deep once you did the prerequisite grinding. It was enjoyed by enough people to get a re-release on the PS Vita only a couple days ago and it’s quite faithful to its console release. Whether that’s a good or bad thing will depend on how you view the original.
Great, another one of these games. Seriously, this is just the worst. I mean, what does this game think it is? A piece of freaking high art that we are just supposed to admire as though its stupid pixels were hanging in some overpriced modern art gallery? Please. I can't believe how, pretentious this game is. Seriously, it's even called Pretentious Game! What a great big pile of pixely puke. I could go on...
As video games have evolved, so have the puzzles that keep us coming back for more. In a marketplace overflowing with video games and puzzles, a good game needs to present something truly original to keep us hooked. In the case of The Bridge, the developer has crafted something that isn’t entirely original, but is interesting enough to warrant your attention.
