Quick Review: Splatoon 2 (Switch) - Test your patience

Quick Review: Splatoon 2 (Nintendo Switch) This is a game that doesn't earn its praise, nor does it deserve it. While the base gameplay concept is fine and dandy, that is shooting ink everywhere and all that jazz, the actual PvP experience here is dreadful. You might think this game's whole point is ink spreading, but because of the maps and overall design, you will run into others constantly and the actual shooting mechanics show their true colors (pun?) within this combat. Aiming is horri

Turbo Review: SUPERHOT (Xbox One, PC)

SUPERHOT Platform: PC, Xbox One Genre: FPS/Puzzle Publisher/Developer: SUPERHOT TEAM ESRB: T Price: $25 USD SUPER. HOT. These are two words you will be saying after playing this game. SUPERHOT is a First Person Shooter, but not like you have ever played. SUPERHOT is actually a really simple concept. You play as a nameless character, seemingly supposed to be you, in a sort of virtual reality game, where you dispatch with 'red guys' as

Turbo Review: World Heroes Perfect (Neo-Geo)

World Heroes Perfect Platform: Neo-Geo Arcade and AES Genre: Fighting Publisher/Developer: SNK The fighting genre exploded in popularity in the early through mid 90's, mostly thanks to Street Fighter II becoming an instant hit in both the arcades and on home consoles. As a result, many fighting games that attempted to emulate its style came about and while some managed to rise above what they were trying to be, there were some that just failed in almost every way.

Turbo Review: Nintendo Badge Arcade (3DS)

Want just a quick summary? Head to the Final Verdict for that and my rating! Nintendo Badge Arcade Platform: Nintendo 3DS Genre: Arcade Publisher/Developer: Nintendo 2015 was an odd year for Nintendo. While we received greatness like Bayonetta 2, Nintendo decided to experiment with much greedier concepts. One of these was Amiibo Festival. The other, was Nintendo Badge Arcade. An awesome looking concept on paper that is foiled by greed.   Nintendo badg

Thomas Was Alone Platform: Xbox One, PS4, PS3, PC, iOS, Android, Wii U, PS Vita Genre: Platform Puzzler Publisher/Developer: Curve Studios/Mike Bithell There is always one game every now and again that just goes against every possible expectation you might have had.

Want just a quick summary? Head to the Final Verdict for that and my rating! Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Platform: Playstation 3 Genre: Third person shooter/adventure Publisher/Developer: Sony/Naughty Dog ESRB: T Uncharted Drake's Fortune was a title that took many by surprise when it first released in 2008.

The Eye of Judgment: Legends Platform: PSP (Available on PS Store for the Vita) Genre: Collectible card battle game Publisher/Developer: SCE/Japan Studio ESRB: E10+ The original Eye of Judgment game on the PS3 was what I would consider an experiment gone wrong.

Want just a quick summary? Go to the Final Verdict below for that and my rating! Super Time Force Platform: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC Genre: Retro 2D Shooter Bullet Hell Publisher/Developer: Capybara Games Super Time Force starts out very promising.

Actually...no, at least, not entirely.   As I said, it is a retro 2D shooter. Yo
