    Oregon Trail

    Rated on February 16, 2013 by newkillerstar27

    This trip down the Oregon Trail may seem a lot different...even unattractive...but it still scratches that itch.

    The Oregon Trail is a game I grew up on. In elementary school I would always try to get my school work done as soon as possible so I could hop onto an old school Apple computer to play some Oregon Tra...

    An early contender for game of the year, Fire Emblem: Awakening is the reason to own a 3DS.

    I wanted to wait until I played through most of this game before reviewing it, and while I don't think it's a perfect experience, I do think that Fire Emblem: Awakening is an excellent game. Keep in m...

    Pushmo is one of those few games that comes along that is both incredibly simple and incredibly addictive.

    Super Mario 3D Land is the definitive 3DS title. If you want to see what the system is capable of, get this game.

    If one thing can always be said of Nintendo, it is that they are consistent. With each new system comes a game or two from their mainstay franchises. Whether it be Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, or in t...

    While the change of scenery is very much welcome, AC3 suffers from what dragged the previous games in the series down.

    A lot of changes set Borderlands 2 apart from its predecessor, but not all of these changes are positive.
