    Puppeteer

    Rated on October 24, 2013 by kbaily

    Creative, Imaginative and Fun

    Puppeteer was a new IP from Sony's Japan studio. It's a shame as Sony did advertise it outside of gaming sites and they also, for some reason decided to release this the same month as GTAV. Seriousl...

    If you think JRPGs are dead, then you haven't played this..

    I have an odd relationship with RPGs. Namely I have to be in the mood to play one and it really has to catch my attention. Ni No Kuni was one such game mainly because it was made with the help of St...

    The other game where Link travels between time periods.

    Oracle of Ages was a GBA game released alongside Oracle of Seasons which I already reviewed and both games are very similar in terms of gameplay and graphics so this review might sound a bit redundant...

    An often overlooked adventure for Link

    The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons

    An often overlooked adventure for Link

    Oracle of Seasons is one of two GBC color Zelda games that came out late in the Gameboy's life and was somewhat eclipsed by Pokémon at the time which is a shame because this and it's Ages counterpart ...

    I'll admit I didn't love the first Luigi's Mansion. I liked it. I didn't love it. Mainly it felt kinda lackluster for a Gamecube launch game. At the same time, Luigi had been mostly non existent i...

    Sequels are supposed to FIX problems of the first game not make them worse!

    Ok I'll be honest. I liked the first Epic Mickey. It was an ambitious idea and despite some issues with the clumsy camera and wonky combat, I found the story compelling enough to work through it. ...

    I'll be honest, like most of you, I wasn't thrilled with the choices of this Paper Mario installment. Super Paper Mario tried using the environments and such for a platformer which wasn't bad but not...

    Link's first handheld outing is worth a look.

    Despite being a Zelda fan, somehow I missed Link's Awakening the first time around. Probably because I was a stupid child who owned a Sega Game Gear instead of a Game Boy so it eluded me for years. ...
