Virtual Console Gems: Detana!! Twinbee

I’m probably one of the most casual players of Shmups you can imagine. I’m terrible at them, but I love explosions, lightning fast action and a great rock soundtrack blasting out of my speakers. There are loads of games that cater to these exact reasons why I love the genre. And then there’s Detana!! Twinbee. […]

Wii-rd Games: LIT

The Wiiware service was pretty overlooked during the last generation. It’s not a big surprise, considering how well supported XBLA and PSN were at the time. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any interesting games available on Wiiware though. I already covered a couple of them here and LIT is another game for the service that shows just how creative some devs […]

Virtual Console Gems: River City Ransom

  When I first heard of River City Ransom, the description alone blew my mind: It’s an NES beat-em-up that features a somewhat open world where you can improve your stats by eating sushi. That sounds pretty amazing, right? The great thing is: you can get this game right now, since it’s on the Virtual […]

Wii-rd Games: Bit.Trip Beat

It’s easy to forget how different the Wii was from every other console when it released back in 2006. Motion controls were something completely new and a lot of developers had huge problems properly adapting to them. While it hampered many efforts, there were some games that were allowed to really shine under these specific […]

It’s been two weeks since my last Youtube Recap and I’ve been really busy! The HunieCam Studio Let’s Play is complete after 9 episodes and I just recently started to do a Let’s Play of Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition. The Lollipop Chainsaw Let’s Play is getting closer to the end, as the latest episode […]

Wii-rd Games: Muscle March

When I started this series of articles, I had a couple of games I really wanted to cover from the very beginning. Muscle March is among these titles and for some very good reasons: It’s probably one of the strangest games I’ve ever played to date and also one of the most interesting games the […]

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 […]

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 […]
