Comments Off on A Nintendo Deal

Sometimes there is an offer that a company will put forth that seems almost too good to be true. For the month of March, however, the one the Nintendo is offering is 100% legit. They are offering Pokémon X or Pokémon Y to any person who happens to register a new portable console and a qualifying… Read More »

Nintendo is ready to party all over again and this time it’s an island party. The island party theme is a fun idea but references to the theme throughout the game don’t really extend beyond some boards having island shaped locations to hop between on the way to the end. This party can be played… Read More »

Comments Off on Scribblenauts Unmasked: Keeping Things Fresh

Scribblenauts has always been puzzle solving fun, and some might worry that series is starting to get stale. Just becoming the same game with a new coat of paint, but worry not, 5th Cell will not let that happen. While not changing up the general gameplay and things we have come to love about Scribblenauts,… Read More »

Planting flowers, catching bugs, fishing, catching a train to visit your friends; it is not every day that you can do this and make some money. That is unless you are spending time in your town on Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This is the newest iteration of the Animal Crossing games and it is available… Read More »

E-shop games are kind of a weird partial frontier at the moment. The 3DS is stuck in a weird place where games should cost more (Luigi’s Mansion is well worth the $40 price of entry), but cell phone and iPad games draw immediate comparison.

Comments Off on PAX Impressions: Day 3

Hordes diminish to throngs, streetpasses are ignored, and chairs are filled up by exhausted, smelly, sleepy nerds. The vibe is almost infectious; I think I’d be tired today even if I had slept… Read More »
