SNES, N64, GC, GBA, DS, Wii, 3DS, Wii U! It feels crazy that we are at the 8th in the best kart racing game series of all time, but we are.

Back are the glory days of 2D platforming! So I say to ye all. With titles like Rayman Legends, New Super Mario Bros., and the slew of platforming indie games like Mutant Mudds and Super Meat Boy, the 2D platforming genre isn’t going anywhere. Sure, maybe there is a bit of an oversaturation of these titles, but many prove that the genre has a lot to offer; on top of that, developers are experimenting with the formula to keep it fresh. And then along came Shovel Knight. Shovel Knight, a kick-started project by Yacht Club Games available for download on 3DS, Wii U, and PC, is a love letter to the great NES platformer classics. The game exceeds the expectation that this game is just a nostalgia-grab (see my review of Ducktales Remastered) by forging its own place in the now decades-old legacy that is the platforming genre. Read on, my fellow knights! (more…)

Vinny isn’t a big sports fan. Mike is though, so this week Vinny will be subjected to NHL Hitz 2002 a game that refuses to use the proper spelling of hits if only to confuse and annoy Vinny, his spell-checker, and the entire nation of Canada. (more…)

Storage is the afterthought of the gaming hobby. Rarely do you hear “I just got this great shelf for my games” or “I finally organized that junk drawer so I can fit all my decks of cards”. We as gamers love games, but what do we love more than games? more games! (more…)

Hanabi

Posted by .

Are fireworks, parades, barbecues, fairs, picnics, baseball games, and family reunions not enough for your 4th of July celebration? How about we toss in some tabletop gaming? Hanabi is a game named after the Japanese word for “fireworks”. I know what you are thinking, “celebrate Independence Day with a foreign game? HERESY!” Well, try and move past that, Hanabi is a wonderful game—and really its just a name. (more…)

Witch and Hero

Posted by .

The summer has always been a good time to start that list we all have of games we never played, never finished, or never even picked up. Games from years ago build up on the ever-increasing pile of good intentions that is the “to play” list. I’ve started knocking them off along with this post, the first off of my list that increases in-tandem with the “to play”, the “to review” list. Okay, Let’s start off full-tilt, uh… with Witch and Hero. Bleck. (more…)

MVRP: The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay

Posted by .

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay is a game based on a series of movies, based on a comic, based on a… Vin Diesel. Yup. Something like that. Vinny hasn’t seen any of the films, nor has he played any of the games, so Mike has decided to force Vinny into it. Time for all the joy of being trapped in prison on an indistinct planet with terrible naming conventions. (more…)

MVRP: Mega Man 7

It has been a while since Mike was subjected to one of his least favorite series, Mega Man. Since Vinny is a vengeful person, he chose Mega Man 7 as Mike’s next taste of the fantastic blue bomber. I think we all learned something. That Mike is terrible at robots. (more…)
