Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash Launches Today

There is a strong possibility that you have never played a Chibi-Robo game. The franchise is older than you probably think, and has many installments. The last game we looked at for Games Reviews was a Chibi-Robo game that tasked you with taking pictures of real world items to satisfy requirements within the game. Our impressions of that title were not great. However, the newest Chibi-Robo, Zip Lash, holds a lot of promise.

Lego Dimensions Review

LEGO is a powerhouse in the toys marketplace, and for good reason. LEGO is not your average toy. It can be manipulated into anything the creator wants. Parts can be mixed and matched, characters that have no place being in the same realm all of a sudden coexist. It is the creative options that makes the toy so admired by children and adults a like. It really shouldn't be any surprise that LEGO, Travelers Tales, and Warner Bros. teamed up to release their own toys-to-life game into a genre that is possibly over crowded already. So how does LEGO Dimensions ...

Rock Band 4 Review

It has been a while since Rock Band 3 in 2010, and although Harmonix slowly added tracks for their flag ship title for years following, Rock Band, and largely the music genre as well, fell away into obscurity. When Rock Band 4 was announced, I could not make myself get excited. Sure, a new Rock Band sounded nice, but lets face it, it is just Rock Band. We have been give the standard formula from Harmonix many, many times! How different could Rock Band 4 really be? After playing over 100 hours of Rock Band 4, I can say that jumping on this new title is a ...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Review

When Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out, Animal Crossing fans were losing their minds over how good the game was. And to their credit, it was good. Great in fact! So when Nintendo announced a spin off title that involved decorating the homes of our favorite characters, fans again voiced their excitement. I enjoy Animal Crossing, and while I enjoyed New Leaf, Happy Home Designer had me incredibly skeptical.

Skylanders amiibo A Sensational Idea

When Reggie and Activision announced at E3 2015 that Nintendo characters were coming to Skylanders, I was fairly skeptical, especially since it was also announced that these characters would also be amiibo compatible. Now that I have the figures in my hands - thanks to Activision who saved me a lot of money (more on that later) - I can say my skeptism was unfounded. While I wish the characters modeled an amiibo more than a Skylander, the final figures are still excellent little toys that are loads of fun to play with in Skylanders SuperChargers.

Disney Infinity 3.0 after 60 Minutes

For the longest time, I often would determine my level of interest in a game after sixty minutes. Growing up, I rented a lot of video games, all of which had to pass the sixty minute test before I would buy it from the store. As a reviewer, I technically can't have a sixty minute barometer - I must review the entire game. However, I often still use my sixty minute rule, even if I plan to play the whole game. With the release of Disney Infinity, the the almost impossible ability to adequately review everything in one 'review,' I've decided to share my thoughts ...

Positive Early Impressions of Disney Infinity 3.0

Disney Infinity 3.0 launch this weekend in North America, and if my local Best Buy was an indication, the positive reception from many media outlets are sending people to stores to plunk down hundreds of dollars. By 6 PM local time, the Disney Infinity shelves were nearly empty as fans flocked to the store to grab as much as they could. Good work Disney! Your game has received so much positive attention that people are forgetting the (minor) downfalls of 2.0 and jumping right into an other experience.

Splatoon Review

Splatoon is the latest and greatest title by Nintendo to grace the Wii U and boy does it deliver! As we begin our Splatoon campaign we select our character. You select either the boy or girl avatar and then begin the tutorial. Nintendo has had an excellent track record on making its mark with any game genre and this is no different as it takes the concept of a shooter subtracts your typical bullets and guns and adds colorful ink and a splatter blaster to paint the town red, or whatever color you can.
