ZombiU Post-Play Review

There will be no overt spoilers in this review, however, I do discuss the game in general, so if you 100% plan on playing ZombiU, you may wish to avoid reading to maintain your own objectivity. I picked up ZombiU on launch day along with Nintendoland and New Super Mario Bros U. Of these 3 titles, ZombiU contains the most … Continue reading

An Open Letter to Nintendo: What You’re Getting Right

  04April2012 Dear Miyamoto, Iwata, Reggie, Mario, et al: As a lifelong player of Nintendo systems and games, I’ve been with your company through thick and thin.  Some of my earliest memories of gaming include the tabletop versions of Mario’s Cement Factory and Popeye.  I’ve been along for the crazy roller coaster of Nintendo’s ups … Continue reading

Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)

The game has been out for more than a year, but I’m finally getting around to playing it.  Given the stature and importance of this title, I wanted to register my enthusiastic endorsement. I’m gonna keep my thoughts brief and to the point, given my tendency to run on and on and on and on……… … Continue reading

Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii)

A really good game that too few people talk about (because you’re all a bunch of lazy f&^ks) This game could be the poster child for the reasons gamers need to do their homework.  We all know that a ton of Wii systems belong to cooler-than-average grandmas and impulsive parents, all of whom used the … Continue reading

Goldeneye 007 (Wii)

Goldeneye 007 (Wii) I just can’t stop playing. Or I couldn’t, anyway.  Lately, I’ve had to give it up for many reasons; a severe, pervasive case of WiiWrist (tendonitis resulting from excessive use of the Wiimote), a backlog of awesome games demanding my attention, and the regrettable need to have a life outside of video … Continue reading

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (Wii)

Just one more review telling you to play this game. Sin & Punishment is no secret anymore; the launch of the US sequel (Star Successor) generated rave reviews from critics and fans alike.  I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus of praise. Shooters, especially ones that hearken back to arcade-style bullet hell … Continue reading

Metroid: Other M (Wii)

A refreshing change from Prime In spite of being a lifelong fan of the Metroid series, I didn’t race out and purchase a copy of the latest installment.  I was fairly busy at the time it launched, and the initial reviews were mixed, so I stashed the game on my “To Do” list and moved … Continue reading

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (Wii)

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (Wii) RE Chronicles are a worthwhile spinoff I’d received this title for Christmas 2010 (more than a year after it’s release) but due to several months of incurable, life-consuming Goldeneye 007 addiction, didn’t get around to opening it until about May 2011. Perhaps I’m just a fanboy for the Resident Evil series, but … Continue reading
