Like many a nostalgic cartoon viewer, I had mixed feelings after seeing all the trailers for the Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers film. I hadn’t exactly grown up watching the Disney Afternoon (I was a Turtles and X-Men kid), but I do recall what those shows were like. I’d also watched them fairly recently, havingContinue reading “Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers – Fun Film, Mixed Message”
Soundfall is a rhythm based looter shooter with RPG elements that just came out last week (I know, shocker! A game that’s not twenty plus years old!). That’s a lot of add-ons, and it’s also a lot of add-ons that really appeal to me as a player. I grew up during the whole Dance DanceContinue reading “Soundfall”
I don’t know about most people, but the first thing I notice about this game is its incredibly fun title. It’s hardly surprising, given that this came out during the height of Rare’s glory in 1995. DKC2: DKQ here is the sequel to the pretty big hit Donkey Kong Country that came out in 1994,Continue reading “Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest”
If you check the Nintendo Online account right now, you’ll find that Kirby: Super Star Saga, happens to be this month’s mission. That works quite well for me, as it happens to be one of the retro titles I’ve played recently while I was waiting for sales (they have now happened and new games shouldContinue reading “Kirby: Super Star Saga”
It’s a little hard to categorize Nine Parchments. In this game, you control one of several possible apprentice wizards who are aiming to get their Nine Parchments, because once they collect them and seal them in their spellbooks, they become fully fledged wizards. Due to some magical mishap, the parchments have been scattered throughout theContinue reading “Nine Parchments”
The Magical Land of Wozz is a bizarre game. Despite its name, it has almost nothing to do with Oz and makes pretty much no references to it, even in the fan translation that most English speakers are likely to play. As I was describing the game’s plot to a friend, they pointed out thatContinue reading “Retroarch: Game Preservation and Trying New Things”
Iconoclasts is one of my favorite metroidvanias, though not for the usual reasons. In fact, I’d argue that when it comes to the various metroidvania elements, Iconoclasts is a bit of a letdown. However, it has one of the best stories I’ve ever seen, period, even if it is relentlessly dark. Iconoclasts follows the journeyContinue reading “Iconoclasts”
I regularly watch several video game critics, as well as reading several magazines, reviews, etc. It’s part of what I do just in normal, but definitely something I pay attention to now that I’m regularly writing on video games myself. Lately I’ve been into Geek Critique, a YouTuber who regularly goes into various video gamesContinue reading “Final Fantasy IX: The Game That Makes Me Love Games”
This is a bad game, and you’d be better off spending your $5 on a different game, or spending just another $5-$10 to get a good game (Hollow Knight’s $15, though if you’re looking here, you probably already played it). 2 poor graphics, game-breaking glitches, weird tone, stiff controls, monotonous music, confusing item descriptions; thisContinue reading “Wife Quest”
This one definitely feels a bit like cheating for me. Dark Deity is a game I backed on Kickstarter several years ago, as it obviously appealed greatly to my sensibilities. They claimed to be making a modern day Strategy RPG in the vein of Fire Emblem, and their Kickstarter exceeded their goals. What’s really impressiveContinue reading “Dark Deity: A Breezy, Yet Surprisingly Deep Fire-Emblem Inspired Gem”
