Mario Bros is a never ending classic full of memorable platforming and likeable characters. The first power-ups of all time to gain pop-culture status were conceived by Nintendo. Since the first Mario more than 20 years ago, there was a Super Mushroom, and it has become a symbol for Mario’s world. Nobody can imagine a Mario World without power-ups. In each new game, new powers appear. By now there is a pool of powers, and depending on your personal style to play, some might be more useful than others. At times, some power-ups are not desirable, like the Mini Mushroom that makes you small to be able to get into a tiny space, but also makes all your enemies bigger, which will make it easier fo... »
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... »
Few games have caused such immediate backlash as Metroid Prime: Federation Force, a cooperative first-person shooter set in the Metroid universe and starring Galactic Federation Marines. It wasn’t necessarily that Federation Force itself looked terrible, but rather that it didn’t look like Metroid and the state of the series didn’t put fans in a good mood to receive a spin-off as the next Metroid title. The last Metroid game came out in 2010, and it wasn’t well-received. Fans waited a long time for Nintendo to announce a new game, and it was an even longer wait for fans hoping for a new 2D Metroid. Instead of a new main-series Metroid game in either 2D or 3D, Nintend... »
Ace Attorney is fantastic, a visual novel/adventure game series with excellent stories, memorable characters, and some of the best humor in the industry. It currently consists of five main-series games, three spin-offs, one crossover with the Professor Layton series, and a sixth main-series game due out this September. While every Ace Attorney game is worth playing, and the series is best experienced in release order, let’s take a look at the three best Ace Attorney games. 3. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is where it all began, and it’s still one of the greatest. While it lacks the clear overarching plot later games would have, the first Ace Attorney g... »
Game Review of SEGA 3D Classics Collection Release Date: April 26th, 2016 NA Publisher: SEGA Retail: $29.99 – Recommended! Classics will always be excellent games. Sega has brought us the best possible remake of 9 classics. In general, all games are just the old classics but with 3D features now. The possibility to save game plays for later in any of the games makes it possible to have better achievements over time. The replay option is also useful to share with friends the most amazing moves and plays. To watch them in 3D makes it especially attractive, and the fast forward option is catchy. After playing them all, I’ll share my best picks. Like many of you after playin... »
The Wii U’s library includes games from across all genres. Let’s take a look at some of the greatest action games available for the Wii U. 3. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD The Wind Waker was already an excellent addition to the Legend of Zelda franchise for the GameCube, but its Wii U remaster takes it to the next level. Not only does it have HD graphics and native 1080p resolution, it also features a number of gameplay improvements. Most notably, the tedious Triforce Quest has been redone so that five shards are found in treasure chests and only the remaining three require Triforce Charts to find them. A new item called the Swift Sail increases the ship’s speed, p... »
