Fairune is a deconstruction of RPGs

It was $2.99. It’s difficult to resist a game at that price. Especially since it only cost a little more than a 3DS theme. For that price, Fairune was mine. It looked aesthetically pleasing and for $3, it’s difficult to complain about a simple timesink. Though, more can be ascribed to Fairune. It is a more »

Minecraft deserves to be popular

I’ve gotten just about nothing done today, work wise. That’s because I’ve been spending the past several hours playing Minecraft. It’s such a fantastic game that it really deserves the popularity it’s gotten. I mean, where else can you spend five hours re-creating a giant wing-wong out of iron blocks? Not that I’ve ever done more »

Contest of Champions made me believe in mobile fighting games

My latest addiction is Marvel’s Contest of Champions, a fighting game on iOS and Android.  Wait, wait, don’t run off because I said mobile fighting game. The basics are simple. Tap the screen for a light attack, swipe for a medium, hold on the opponent for a heavy attack which breaks blocks. Holding backward blocks, more »

Minecraft Story Mode is certainly something

I like to believe I trust Telltale Games. The developer clearly knows what it’s doing, with hits like The Walking Dead, Sam & Max, Fables, and, most recently, Game of Thrones. Still, their latest Minecraft Story Mode announcement is giving me pause. Because this is Minecraft, a game that’s essentially virtual legos, and one wonders more »

Nintendo eShop Update for December 18, 2014

Well, this is a massive update. Nothing terribly, super awesome in it for the or , though. It’s not like we got the 3DS Badge Grab Center. Probably the only thing I’d recommend is Fairune for the 3DS, since most of the stuff in this week’s eShop update is shovelware. As for sales, there are more »

Light and Dark Skylanders Trap Team elements make sense, but aren’t fair

With Skylanders Trap Team Activision and Toys for Bob decided to take things a step further. It wasn’t enough to have 8 different elements worth of Skylanders figures for people to collect. They upped the number to 10, so Light and Dark could be added to the mix. While this may make sense, since the more »

Here’s how you use the 3DS Badge Grab Center

I found the best thing last night, when I updated my Japanese 3DS XL. Nintendo’s been moving towards allowing all kinds of customization on the system, what with the introduction of Themes, and has taken another step forward with The Badge Grab Center. What’s that? It’s an application that lets people acquire decorations, new icons, more »
