    The long-requested fighting game returns a long hiatus.

    Killer Instinct

    The long-requested fighting game returns a long hiatus.

    This is my first Xbox One game review and a good one at best. This game right here was one of my reasons for even considering an Xbox One in the first place. Seriously, Killer Instinct is about as good as it was many ye... Read Full Review

    Knack

    I had a Knack to review this as my first PS4 review

    Run, punch, collect stuff. Thats Knack in a nutshell. This was one of my first games I got on the PS4 (other one was Angry Birds Star Wars which I got on QVC) and honestly, I enjoyed it. True it's not the greatest game ... Read Full Review

    I almost lost interest in Pokemon games after White 2 but this one's the real deal

    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (GameStop Limited Edition)

    The main reason to get a Wii U

    I've had my Wii U for quite some time but never really played with it. When I got Wind Waker HD, I played my Wii U for many hours at a time. Before I knew it, 5 or 6 hours have gone pretty quickly. Wind Waker was a great... Read Full Review

    Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

    Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Kingdom Hearts, and rightly so.

    I'm not sure where this game would go in the complicated, yet simple timeline of Kingdom Hearts. Either after Kingdom Hearts II or after Re: Coded (Coded as it was originally known as when it was a mobile game). In this ... Read Full Review

    Ryu ga Gotoku 4: Densetsu o Tsugumono

    Another great entry in the Yakuza series.

    What can I say about Yakuza 4? There's lot of great things I can say about this game. Unlike past games where you only play as Kiryu, in this game, you play with three other people who are somehow intertwined with each o... Read Full Review

    Donkey Kong 64

    One of other N64 games that were very successful and Rare knew how to keep it well.

    This was one of Rare's best games ever made hands down. When Rare was with Nintendo, they really knew what they were doing and with this game, it really showed. Visually, this game showed what Rare could do with N64 hard... Read Full Review

    Majora's Mask was pretty good but it had a few downsides. (contains spoilers)

    Majora's Mask is not exactly the easiest game in the book. Unlike Ocarina of Time, masks are pretty much a necessity in this game. Yes those masks are optional but as it turns out, you'll need them for the final boss whi... Read Full Review
