The team behind Fire Emblem has gone to some odd places in devising their brand new game, but they've also added some cool mechanics and a story straight out of Saturday morning cartoons to make the oddities fit right in. The game doesn't always flow perfectly, but Codename S.T.E.A.M is certainly a fun little strategy title.

I was excited for Citizens of Earth, and I marked it down as the first 2015 release I wanted to sink my teeth into. As it turns out, what I bit off left a bad taste in my mouth.
The hardened NHL fan looks past visual achievements, and finds a hollow experience devoid of some of the depth that made NHL 14 so good.
For newcomers, Spry Fox's console debut marks a puzzle/exploration game with unique mechanics that rewards and punishes experimentation.
To roughly paraphrase the opening to the action role-playing game Bound By Flame, every undead monster you kill is just one fewer monster, while every living soldier they kill swells their ranks further.
While its predecessors are known for their grand sense of freedom, Blackgate tries to compensate for its lack of large-scale exploration with a small-scale price... and small-scale fun.
Puzzle games seem to be all the rage in the App Store. When Threes popped up, gamers flocked to it (and its clone).
Gaming's favorite green dinosaur has returned in Yoshi's New Island, which is the newest entry in the Yoshi franchise since Yoshi's Island DS for the Nintendo DS. Given the difference in capabilities between the Nintendo DS and the 3DS, we had rather high expectations for Yoshi's side-scrolling return. And with a title of "New Island," we were hoping that that this side-scrolling platformer headlined by Mario's sidekick would try to bring something new to the table. So let us see if Yoshi's still has what it takes to egg-cel in the modern era.
BulkyPix, purveyors of fine downloadable titles on the App Store, has released a simple shooter called Triblaster. If you’ve never been a fan of geometry, then now’s your chance to get back at all of those pesky shapes that have plagued you since high school. In Triblaster, you take control of a tiny triangle that rolls from side to side on a plane while other shapes move towards it, coming in from the background.
Don't be fooled by the cutesy graphics of Pocket Gunfighters, as this shooter takes aim with a swipe-and-tap control mechanic that will have you hooked in moments. Addiction, however, has its price, even if it comes in the form of a free-to-play app. The devil is always in the details, and although Pocket Gunfighters has tons of bullets to spare, there's one particular showdown that almost ruins the game.
