    Dark Souls II

    Solid, if slightly unimpressive, sequel

    From Software's third installment in the Souls series is another superb game, but overall Dark Souls 2 did not impress me. I've played it three times, including NG+, but I can't say it's nearly as good as it's predecess... Read Full Review

    Super Mario 3D World

    It hardly offers any glimpse of difficulty, but 3D world is entertaining nonetheless.

    Super Mario 3D World is a great game and will certainly boost the Wii U's popularity. While I didn't find the game up to par with the quality of the Galaxy series (especially in terms of single player experience,) it is ... Read Full Review

    As good as it gets on 3DS.

    The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (Collector's Edition)

    As good as it gets on 3DS.

    Zelda has always been my favorite series, but, if recent polls are anything to go by, it is no longer seen as the legendary king of all games it was in the 90s. This is partially because of the 'dude bro' mentality of so... Read Full Review

    Terrific remake of one of the best action adventure games ever.

    Zelda no Densetsu: Kaze no Takuto HD

    Terrific remake of one of the best action adventure games ever.

    Graphics - 10 I don't care too much about graphics, but by the gods this game has to be one of the prettiest things ever created. The art style is amazing, and I for one am a fan of the lighting changes. The quality isn... Read Full Review

    Total War: Rome II

    A tad underwhelming, but patches and mods will make it better

    As usual CA has made a bare bones structure for the modding community and themselves to patch up and released it as a game. So while the game right now might be underwhelming, it's foundations have extremely high potenti... Read Full Review

    Gone Home

    To the Moon

    One of the most touching stories ever.

    A decent attempt to revitalize a faltering genre.
