Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

Somewhat contrary to how late-80s Capcom used to pump out these games, it’s taken nearly two years since the release of Mega Man Legacy Collection for the next installment to reach us.  The first MMLC was generally pretty well accepted by critics thanks to its faithful emulation of the original jewels that were the retro NES Mega Man titles, and now, on August 8, Capcom looks to make another splas...[Read More]

Amazing

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Chumps' Choice

Kart racing bliss. Nearly three years ago today, with Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U, Nintendo released what was arguably the best game in the Mario Kart series to date.  The game tactfully merged what was widely considered to be the best elements from throughout the franchise into a single epic package, complete with 32 extremely detailed and well-balanced racetracks (all of them entirely unique, dec...[Read More]

Snipperclips: Cut it out, together!

Perhaps the only situation where getting snipped is actually fun. One of the Nintendo Switch’s best games at launch might be one of its least expected.  Snipperclips is a cute, intriguing, and unique game which requires players to cooperate with precision and frequent communication in order to solve a variety of puzzles.  It’s designed for bite-sized romps through a series of a few dozen levels (e...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Review Addendum / Companion Article

There is so much to cover about a game as deep as Breath of the Wild that it’s nearly impossible to fit it all into one cohesive review.  As a result of that, I’ve prepared a companion article with even more specificity (but still with careful attention to spoilers) to address some of the myths and misconceptions about Zelda, as well as my response to some of the more common criticisms. Before we ...[Read More]

Perfect

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Editor's Choice

I think you are now ready… ready to hear what happened two weeks ago. Dear impatient optimists, dear pragmatic skeptics, dear dedicated detractors… I choose to begin this review in perhaps the most declarative and divisive way possible, so buckle up for some hyperbolic blasphemy: Enchanting.  Sprawling.  Overwhelming.  Groundbreaking.  Mind-blowing. Masterpiece. You see, whether or not you can pos...[Read More]

Pokémon Moon

It’s the 20th anniversary of Game Freak’s one-of-a-kind franchise, and with it comes significant change.  Modernization, some might call it; enhanced accessibility—while purists likely will turn up their nose initially.  Ultimately, though, after all these years, evolution was warranted.  Has it been for the better? Pokémon Sun and Moon are set in the world of Alola, a network of tropical islands ...[Read More]
