Hyrule Warriors

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 20/09/2014 I feel like I need to start this review off by saying that I’m glad that “Hyrule Warriors,” isn’t preceded by “The Legend Of Zelda.” In fact, I think we’d all do well to pretend that any characters or […]

Yoshi’s New Island

Platform(s): 3DS Exclusive Release: 15/03/2014 Author’s Note: I would like to note that I began writing this review before I saw the Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS Nintendo Direct. I don’t believe it’s going to be the Jesus of gaming, descending from the heavens to […]
