Lately, many hardcore gamers have accused Nintendo of being too coddling to its fanbase. "Where have all the challenging games gone?" they demanded. While Nintendo seems content to continue mostly producing games that place accessibility over challenge, they did fire back with a resounding answer: "You want a challenge? Fine. Here's Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze." And what a frosty challenge it is.

The Last of Us - Left Behind Review (PlayStation 3)

Naughty Dog
I’m of the opinion that The Last of Us was such a perfect game -- such a perfect experience -- that it didn’t warrant a downloadable content episode. Where we had landed with Joel and Ellie at the end of the narrative felt open-ended and ambiguous, sure, but there was also a sense of finality; we’ve seen these two remarkable people to the end of our road with them. So when I heard that Naughty Dog was releasing a single-player, story-based DLC episode, I raised my eyebrow both skeptically and in confusion. Now, after having played through the handful of hours in The Last of Us: Left Behind, I can say that maybe I was wrong in fearing the worst.

For many gamers, Final Fantasy VI was the best entry in the greatest generation of gaming- the Super Nintendo era.

Cut The Rope 2 Review

Small puzzle games like Cut The Rope 2 challenge the player not just to beat each level, but to achieve the highest score possible. This kind of simple challenge can quickly turn into a monstrous task as you're faced with a number of obstacles preventing you from bringing the tasty sweet treat to Om Nom, along with obtaining enough stars to beat each level. Cut The Rope 2 isn't entirely original in it's layout, but the cute, adorable design, music and game play make this sequel absolutely addicting.
