Nintendo Time Portal: Issue 31

Welcome to the September 2-8 edition of the Nintendo Time Portal, where we take a look back through history to see which game anniversaries we celebrate this week. September 2 – Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland is released. “Let’s make a Zelda spin-off about Tingle,” someone decided one day, and Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland was released in Japan on September 2, 2006. This rupee-gathering spin-off was eventually brought to Europe, although never to North America. It saw positive to mixed reviews, and there must be a fair number of Tingle fans, because Japan eventually got a sequel. September 5 – Recca comes to North America. Summer Car... »

2064: Read Only Memories Integral (Review)

We received a review code for 2064: Read Only Memories Integral on the Switch. 2064: Read Only Memories Integral is an adventure game that takes place in a cyberpunk futures where robotic helpers called ROMs have become commonplace and advanced gene therapy has led to a number of people becoming hybrids. When you wake up one morning to find the world’s first sapient ROM, Turing, in your apartment asking for help after the disappearance of their creator, you’re swept into a conspiracy that goes far deeper than just one man’s disappearance. The game often comes across as more of a visual novel, with the bulk of your time spent reading and selecting dialogue choices. Your choi... »

Nintendo Time Portal: Issue 29

Welcome back to the Nintendo Time Portal, where we look back at this week in Nintendo’s history to celebrate some of the great games that came out over the years. August 19 – New Super Mario Bros. 2 comes to North America. While New Super Mario Bros. had already been followed by New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Nintendo made another sequel called New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS. It came west in August and reached North America on August 19, 2012. This entry focused on collecting as many coins as possible. It saw positive reviews, but never quite stood out as much as the others. August 22 – The Legend of Zelda came to North America… probably. The original Legend of Zelda... »

Snake Pass (Review)

Snake Pass (Review)

With its bright, colorful graphics, upbeat soundtrack composed by David Wise, and cartoonish animal protagonists, Sumo Digital’s Snake Pass immediately calls to mind classic 3D platformers. However, while Snake Pass is a puzzle platform game, its gameplay is quite different from most entries in the genre because the main character can’t jump. The game stars a snake named Noodle and his hummingbird friend Doodle. They’re on a quest to save their home, although a bare minimum of story details are given to send the duo on their quest. Doodle can give Noodle a tiny boost, but for the most part, you’ll be slithering and winding your way through various obstacles and hazard... »

Vaccine (Review)

Vaccine (Review)

As you start a new game, an ominous voice says the game’s name: “Vaccine.” You take control of either a male or female character, grab the knife on the ground, and venture out to explore a creepy mansion filled with zombie-like creatures and other monstrosities. Vaccine’s classic Resident Evil inspiration is visible everywhere, right down to its graphics and awkward tank controls. Your friend has been infected, and it’s up to you to search the mansion for the vaccine… or rather, the antidote, but “Vaccine” makes for a cooler game title. Since you have to make it back before your friend succumbs to the infection, you’re on a timer. It star... »

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale (Review)

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale (Review)

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale was a game no one saw coming, a crossover between the rarely-localized PopoloCrois JRPG series and the farming simulation series Story of Seasons. Set in between the original two PopoloCrois games, the story begins on Prince Pietro’s 13th birthday. When he leaves his world behind in search of a way to stop the mysterious “black beasts” threatening PopoloCrois, he finds himself trapped in the barren world of Galariland. His only hope to save both worlds from darkness is to restore the four Farms of Light and revive the goddess Galariel. Considering its premise, you might expect it to be evenly divided between its PopoloCroi... »

Reviewed: Pocket Card Jockey

When Game Freak decided to make a game about an aspiring jockey, they realized the one thing horse racing games have been missing all these years: solitaire. In Pocket Card Jockey for the Nintendo 3DS, you play a young jockey whose first attempt to race a horse ends in a fatal accident. However, thanks to an angel who enjoys horse races, you’re given a second chance at life with a special power that lets you channel your solitaire skills into racing. Horse racing and solitaire might not seem like the most obvious combination, but Pocket Card Jockey makes it work. In each leg of the race, you use the touchscreen to position your horse and gather energy, and then you play a round of golf... »

Reviewed: Metroid Prime Federation Force

  Personally, I am a fan of the Metroid Prime series, and I was waiting impatiently to get the new Metroid Prime Federation Force last week. I might have been the first to get to the store to pick my copy. Now I have completed all missions; I’ll share with you some of what I’ve learned and some tricks. The Story I am not giving up much detail to avoid spoiling the game for you. In the Metroid Prime world, this is one of the most engaging stories released until now. 22 missions were enough to keep me entertained for a while. It is consistent with Samus’ storyline, but if you are not familiar with the original game, you can still enjoy the story. There are some differences if you play sol... »

Reviewed: Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move

The Mario vs. Donkey Kong series has changed a lot over the years, and one of the biggest changes in Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is right in the title. You won’t be fighting Donkey Kong. Instead, you’ll guide mini versions of Mario, Donkey Kong, Peach, Toad, or Pauline through a series of puzzles. There are four main modes, but the basic gameplay remains the same in each. Your Minis move on their own, and you must lay down paths for them to follow to the door. In Mario’s Main Event, random tiles are dispensed for you to use to create your path. Puzzle Palace gives you a set number of tiles instead, while Many Mini Mayhem fills the board with tiles you must arra... »
