NERO is a first-person adventure game with a focus on the experience and narrative from developer Storm in a Teacup. Adventure games have seen a decent resurgence as of late and NERO falls mostly into a relatively new niche in this genre called first-person narratives. Games in this sub-genre include games such as Dear Ether […]
Nintendo has been slow to produce new IP’s, but when they finally make a new game, they tend to meet success. Splatoon is a third-person shooter that’s no different. But instead of going for gritty ultra-violence, it opts for making an unconventional paint-ball romp. The level of creativity is overflowing too…although some things were overlooked […]
Rogue-likes are making a comeback to the PC scene, even if they aren’t in the same realm of popularity of the Metroidvania genre. Crypt of the Necrodancer, however, does something a bit different to set it apart from previous and current efforts. However, its steep challenge might turn away most players and keep only the […]
While there are plenty of Metroidvania platformers out there, not many of them actually go for more of a Zelda II style. Finding Teddy 2 is such a game. While the game is a fun little action-platformer with a few neat ideas, it falls somewhat short because of two large oversights in its gameplay. Finding […]
Project CARS is a racing simulator from developer Slightly Mad Studios. Since the inception of this studio, they have been completely focused on racers, bringing you such games as Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed, which were both well received. Since then, they have worked on a couple more games and have just […]
Back in 2010 the original Xenoblade released in Japan for the Nintendo Wii, and a European version released about a year later as Xenoblade Chronicles. Nintendo of America kind of dragged its foot about a North American release, but thankfully in 2012 they answered the demand for the game, using Nintendo of Europe’s localization. It […]
The original Toukiden released a year ago in the West, and it unfortunately had become obsolete, as a trademark for Kiwami had been filed. And sure enough, not even a month later, it was officially announced. And the result is a game with more content, only it may not be enough for early adopters.
Metal Slug 3 has a long history of being ported to pretty much every console since its original 2000 arcade release. And while there’s no shortage of ways to play the game, this port has a few extra features that could entice the hardcore Metal Slug fans. But, it’s still Metal Slug 3. And it’s […]
It hasn’t been a terribly long time since Winged Cloud released their Kinetic and fan service-laden visual novel Sakura Spirit. Thankfully its new follow-up Sakura Angels is an improvement; although the improvements are only slight.
With how perennially popular dinosaurs are among kids (and even adults like me), it’s a wonder there aren’t more games designed to exploit that fact. Fossil Fighters is a series that debuted here on the DS back in 2009, but mostly slipped under the radar despite some decent reviews. It’s back now as a 3DS […]
