How can Nintendo keep the Wii U alive?

It’s really not a secret anymore that the Wii U is dying a slow death right now. While there are still some big games coming, like a new Paper Mario and Zelda, the console’s days are numbered. Since Nintendo doesn’t want to produce any big title for the console anymore, here are a few ideas […]

Virtual Console Gems: Ninja Commando

Arcade games provide for a very special kind of nostalgia. Since they are normally tied to an experience in an actual arcade, where a machine is sitting and trying to attract you with a demo reel, they are somewhat different from your home console games. And yet, it seems very strange to discover such a […]

Virtual Console Gems: Devil’s Crush (Turbografx-16)

It’s no secret that I love pinball games, be it real or virtual ones. Since I was a child, I had a certain fascination with them, even though the physical machines pretty much disappeared in the early 2000’s. However, the amount of virtual pinball games increased and in a world with titles like Pinball Arcade […]

Let’s Play Recap #2: HunieCam Studio and Lollipop Chainsaw

Another week another Let’s Play recap. I’ve started doing a HunieCam Studio Let’s Play, where the final video went up yesterday. Check it out if you’re interested in naughty clicker games.

Wii-rd Games: Ghost Squad

Ghost Squad is a masterpiece. It revels in in its own silliness and simplicity and thus becomes what I’d call a perfect game. It’s weird, fun and entertaining, and that is all what it’s aiming for. The story of the light gun shooter is paper thin, the characters barely register on our plane of existence […]

Breath of the Wild got me hyped!

While I was disappointed at first that Nintendo was only going to show the latest The Legend of Zelda game at E3, I must admit that what has been shown of the game has made me excited. That’s exceptional in and of itself, since I’m not a huge Zelda fan, and I still have a […]

Impressions: Resident Evil 7 – Beginning Hour

The playable teaser is a fairly new way of showing off a game to the audience. P.T. Was one of the first games to do this in order to tease a new Silent Hill title, that unfortunately would never see the light of day. Taking some cues from Konami, Capcom has released a playable teaser […]

So without any further ado, let’s head right to it! Watchdogs 2 is one of the most prominent games that […]

Wii-rd Games: Disaster: Day of Crisis

Sometimes you encounter a game so untypical for its creator, you have to wonder how it got made in the first place. Now, this goes twofold in case of Disaster: Day of Crisis, since the developer, Monolith Software, is mostly known for JRPGs and Nintendo rarely produces a game that targets a more serious, adult […]
