Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is the game that no one wanted but was still forced upon us as a less-than-grand way of marking Metroid’s 30th anniversary year. I really wasn’t expecting much going in, in fact, I was expecting it to be outright terrible. Perhaps […]

Monster Hunter Generations

I was a fairly late-comer to the Monster Hunter series, only picking it up after the release of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (MH4U), and for that, I feel cheated. Why had no one sat me down and told me exactly how great this series is? […]

Bravely Second: End Layer

I think it’s fair to say we each have quirks when it comes to what we enjoy in games—and, in saying that, sometimes these preferences can prevent us from enjoying an otherwise totally well-made game. For some players, it may be an exclusive interest in […]

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon

I’m not one of those Nintendo stalwarts who fill their 24 hour cycle speculating about finite details of upcoming games. To be honest, my interest in the main titles of the Pokémon franchise has started to wane. They are essentially the same ‘collect 8 badges,’ […]

When I open a Zelda game, even if it’s a remaster, I always hear the sound of a treasure chest opening in-game—bah da da dah hh hh! With Twilight Princess, it was as if it’s suddenly 2006 and my GameCube is as desperate for this […]
