YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Review

I've never had the pleasure of playing a YS game before, and after playing YS VII: Lacrimosa of Dana I really wish I had. From the first cutscenes to the moment I was able to take control of the games protagonist, Adol. Although the game isn't without a few faults, it is an outstanding experience from start to finish, one I'm really glad I was able to play.

I was very impressed by the first footage of the game though. I was starting to get excited about Mario and Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Would this game…

SteamWorld Dig 2 – Official Launch Trailer

Steamworld Dig 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Thursday! Here is a new trailer for the game and my impressions of it. I loved this new Steamworld Dig 2 trailer. We got a tease of Rusty in the game, saw some new powerups (that hook!!), new areas, and more! I just have to mention how great it was to get another look at the town that Dorothy will be visiting. I like how the new menus are laid…

Earthlock: Festival of Magic Wii U Impressions

Earthlock: Festival of Magic is a brand new turn-based rpg for the Wii U eshop. Yes I just said a brand new game for the Wii U! You do not see that very often, especially now that even Nintendo has abandoned the system for the Switch. So I have to admit I was pretty excited for this game. I love rpgs, I love the Wii U, and I think its great to play a new game on the system again.…

LEGO Dimensions Beetlejuice Fun Pack Review

Tonight, my son and I cracked into the Beetlejuice Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions thanks to my good friends at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment in Canada. While the physical LEGO build itself isn't one of the best to come out of the LEGO Dimensions lineup, the gameplay more than makes up for it. Overall, the Fun Pack comes highly recommended from us here at GamesReviews!

Music to Rayman’s Ears: A Look at the Musical Genius of Rayman Legends Definitive Edition

I love music in video games. I see video games as a visual, audio, and tactile experience. A bad audio experience won’t  kill a game but its always a disappointment to me when the audio isn’t where it should be. Of course, not all games can have a great score. I’d settle for a good score. But wow, isn’t it great when developers go the extra mile and create an amazing audio experience? Rayman Legends Definitive Edition for the Nintendo…

PDP’s Latest Shipment Shows They are About Diversity of Franchises

When the Pixel Pals were first launched by PDP, we noticed a number of people commenting on our social media threads that Performance Design Products was going to cater to the Nintendo audience with these releases, and basically leaving out the 'hardcore' audience. From what we have seen, however, this is far from the truth, and the latest shipments we have received for review speak volumes to that.
