    13 Points on Tearaway

    Tearaway

    13 Points on Tearaway

    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 beautiful game no matter... Read Full Review

    13 Points on Super Metroid

    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. Super Metroid looks gre... Read Full Review

    Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

    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 location where the ... Read Full Review

    Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

    13 Points on Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

    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 doesn't quite have th... Read Full Review

    Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma

    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 and escape the room pu... Read Full Review

    Rayman Origins

    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 like Game Boy and Pla... Read Full Review

    Underneath a light exterior, lies a serious Metroidvania game

    Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

    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 like it enough to f... Read Full Review

    An Amusing Game that Lacks Somewhat in Polish

    Retro City Rampage DX

    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 the top-down GTA ga... Read Full Review

    Charming presentation, terrible rhythm games.

    Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure

    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/ that shortly. 2. T... Read Full Review

    Good Times Come in Small Packages

    Nano Assault EX

    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 stick shooter for a sys... Read Full Review

    A cult classic for reasons anyone can appreciate

    EarthBound

    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.2. Graphically, it i... Read Full Review

    Donkey Kong Country

    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 I could finally get... Read Full Review

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3D

    Giant and Expansive

    Xenoblade Chronicles feels as large and expansive to me as any console RPG made to date. Its an epic tale with a huge scope set in a huge and engrossing world. Its graphics feel a generation or two behind at this point ... Read Full Review

    Rocket League

    Seving up deep, complex fun five minutes at a time

    Rocket League is a team sports game. It has cars in it and it looks somewhat like soccer but really, it's its own thing. You play as one player on a team and everyone player on the fields is completely antonymous, which... Read Full Review
