    1. Tearaway reaches for fun-for-all-ages charm but ultimately feels like a children's game--not that that is altogether a bad thing. 2. Its artstyle is eye catching and stylish. This is a really beau...

    1. This game holds up. For real. It existed in my peripheral gaming vision as a kid but I never played it until I was all grown up and shaving and it still does not really feel like an old game.2. Sup...

    13 Points on Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

    1. This isn't really a sequel to the original Shin Megami Tensei IV. It is more of a standalone expansion. If it were a TV show, I think I'd call it a spinoff. It's a concurrent story, set in the same...

    I find it alarming this has no proper d-pad.

    1. Golden Sun: Dark Dawn plays at being the best RPG on a system w/ no shortage of great RPGs but it just plays at it.2. The graphics here have got to be close to the best for any game on DS. The DS d...

    13 Points on Zero Time Dilemma

    1. Long story short: this is the worst game of the series. 999 is much better than Virtue's Last Reward, which is slightly better than this. 2. Gameplay in this is split between endless cut scenes an...

    This is pretty much exactly what I like about No Man's Sky. Everyone is complaining about the inventory system but it's the stress of having to deal w/ the limited space creates situations you wouldn'...

  • logicalfrank posted a message on the post No Man's Sky Review.

    I agree w/ basically everything in the review but would probably give it 9/10. There are problems for sure but I think the main issue people are having is they saw the graphics and they imagined what...

    Thirteen Points on Rayman Origins

    1. If you like beautiful 2D platformers where you play as a limbless something or other who speaks in pig Latin, well, they made game for you. I guess there are other 2D Rayman games but they are on l...

    Underneath a light exterior, lies a serious Metroidvania game

    1. Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is a Metroidvania game but it is not all dour and stuff like Metroid or Castlevania. 2. The first Shantae game I played was the original for Game Boy Color. I did not...

    An Amusing Game that Lacks Somewhat in Polish

    1. Retro City Rampage is sort of almost there. The presentation is solid but it focuses more on jokes than gameplay and it wears a bit thin after a while.2. This is basically a really easy version of...

    Charming presentation, terrible rhythm games.

    1. The presentation of this is amazingly charming w/ its hand drawn astetic, beautiful music, Parisian setting and hilariously improbably storyline. All of this is wasted, unfortunately. We'll deal w...

    Good Times Come in Small Packages

    1. I played the EX version of Nano Assault. Almost everything I say will go for both versions and I actually did not use the stick controls for the EX version for much of the game. This is a twin sti...

  • logicalfrank rated Nano Assault a score of 8.

    A cult classic for reasons anyone can appreciate

    1. Earthbound is something of a cult classic and there's a reason for that: it's great. It is sort of a self-aware console RPG w/ a great sense of humor. It comes off as ahead of its time even today....

    There is no way I'm giving up spamming "Nice shot!" after an own goal.

    Gaming laptops are pretty good these days. You pay more for the same performance than a desktop, of course, but $800 gets you solid performance on current gen titles and you can easily take it anywher...

    A beautiful game with great level ideas that ultimately falls short

    I have wanted to play Donkey Kong Country for years. Being a general fan of Nintendo platformers and seeing its generation ahead graphics, I was very excited to see this finally come out on New 3DS so...

    Split screen PvP in Tetris can warm a lot of people up to the idea of gaming. She probably already knows how to play Tetris. She probably thinks she's better at it than you... Not sure what the PS3/4 ...
