Mostly Yay (and a little Nay) regarding Kid Icarus Uprising’s controls

Please note:  This entry was written in response to IGN’s reader question-of-the-week for 26Mar12.  Readers were asked to discuss the recently released Kid Icarus Uprising for Nintendo DS.  My entry was the #1 winning submission and was featured on the front page of IGN’s 3DS column.  Needless to say, I was grateful for this honor.  … Continue reading

First Impressions of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater 3D

Interesting item of note:  when I booted up the game, it asked me which Metal Gear Solid was my favorite.  Full disclosure—I am a TOTAL MGS newb, so all of my following comments should be taken accordingly.  I’m guessing that the “favorite” question might be designed to let the game know my level of my … Continue reading

31 Swapnotes in 31 Days.

I have added this post to my Nintendo site out of the need to have a single place where I can direct people to get a copy, but also because my interest in 8bit and video game music had a direct influence on the recording process.  It may not be evident in all songs, but … Continue reading

Nintendo Games that DEMAND sequels (part 3)

UPDATED 03Jan11: Below is the third entry in my countdown of five epic games (native to Nintendo consoles) that really should get sequels.  As part of my series, I wrote to some of the designers and developers behind these deserving titles. Kyle Gray, the main brain (and Director) behind the DS-exclusive Henry Hatsworth and the … Continue reading

Rhythm Heaven (DS)

More than 2 years old, I’ve had almost no excuse for not playing Rhythm Heaven before now.  Well, no excuse, except for the fact that I’ve been buried under a pile of incredible, almost-as-awesome games.  I’m also an out-of-the-closet “saver”; this is to say I regularly “save” things.  For instance, if I hear of an especially good … Continue reading
