Mario Kart 8 Preview

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches next week, and multiple websites are pushing out their various previews and reviews. While we do get the opportunity to review most of Nintendo’s products – they did send us a Switch after all! – there are the odd moments where demands far exceeds supply. As a rerelease on a new platform, this appeared to be one of those situations. Don’t worry though, as we will be picking up our own copy next week, and…

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe First Impressions

I have mixed feelings about free-to-play (or free-to-start) games. On the surface, the idea is interesting: free to download games that you can play and if you like, you can buy more levels or items for the games.

I’m including Nintendo in this because I didn’t think the free-to-start Pokémon games nor Steel Diver were that good. However, if anyone…

Attack of the “Retro” RPG: A Preview of Dragon Sinker for 3DS

Back in the NES days, I wasn’t an rpg fan. It wasn’t till years later with Final Fantasy 7 that became an rpg fan. And after I really got into rpgs, I went back and was able to appreciate and like the older rpgs. So whenever an indie developer, say KEMCO for instance, puts together a game in the “retro” rpg style I’m excited. Dragon Sinker for the 3DS (Developed by KEMCO) came out last week. It is a new…

I am not yet ready to write a review for Animal Gods, but here is a short preview of the game. Animal Gods for the Wii U came out on…

Farming Simulator – Getting Through the First Hours

For many people, Farming Simulator 2017 can be some what intimidating, and for good reason – there is a lot to think about, a lot to know, and often, multiple ways to do any one given job. I’ve always felt this series has been harder to attach to then other simulator titles, but I managed, and here is how! Initially, your first few hours within the game will be limited by the funds you have and getting those first crops…

While the DLC is available on all systems, we are…

Carefully Choose Your Paper Mario: Color Splash Battle Cards

Mario will just be wandering along, minding his own business, when suddenly an enemy attacks him!! Alright, sometimes Mario is the one…

Agricola games on iOS

There really is only one thing I love more than video games when it comes to the plethora of entertainment options, and that would be board games. I generally love them all, from the well know Monopoly, Clue, Risk, and yes, even Settlers of Catan – which is now mainstream – to the less popular Viticulture, Dominion, Settlers of Skye, and so many more. One board game that I jumped on early was Agricola, an incredibly challenging and insanely long…
