Tiny Tower Vegas is a blatant cash grab

I like NimbleBit. I appreciate that the developer makes free-to-play iOS and Android games that you can (normally) actually enjoy for free. Which is why I was excited about Tiny Tower Vegas. Disco Zoo had me obsessed, I played Star Wars: Tiny Death Star for weeks, even though I’ve never seen a movie or played more »

White and light pink Vita is the color of love

“There were otome-related game announcements during Sony’s Japan Asia 2014 press conference and Jenni is going to talk about them? What a shock!” …Said no one ever. Let’s face it, it’s a thing I do. I like dating sims because they amuse me, so of course I’ll cover announcements related to them. Which is why more »

PS4 themes are exciting, Vita themes aren’t

There’s news out of Japan that will please many people who love to customize their systems. The PS4 is getting themes! On the less exciting side, Vita themes are on the way too. The former is exciting because, well, the PS4 is really pretty dull. All we get is a field of color. Granted, various more »

Extra Life: 24 hour gaming marathon for Children’s Hospitals

Extra Life is a unique fundraising effort that has been around since 2008. It was started in honor of a young girl named Victoria Enmon who, tragically, lost a battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The fundraiser originally raised money for the Texas Children’s Hospital, but after a few years, people who contributed asked for a more »

Xenoblade on Nintendo’s New 3DS is a good first step

There’s a lot of yelling going on about Nintendo’s new hardware. The upgraded tech is cool, but people are wary of the platform getting a third remodel. Like the DSi, the 3DS is not only changing in look, but also gaining entirely new features. Unlike the DSi, the new features are almost shockingly substantial, and more »

The New 3DS’s C-stick will be a win

The new, I’m sorry, New 3DS may have a bit of an identity issue. One thing it doesn’t have an issue with is charm. The thing is just flat-out weird. I love weird. The new “C-stick” looks to effectively be one of those antiquated little “pointing stick” nubs that Lenovo still sticks on their Thinkpads. more »

Square Enix bringing Dragon Quest to the perfect platform

Yeah, so, I like Dragon Quest a lot. Sometimes it’s hard to tell is Square Enix does too. On one hand, we got a weird-but-somehow-still-fun port of Dragon Quest 8 on mobile platforms. On the other, the 3DS has had like 3 awesome Dragon Quest remakes that have yet to leave Japan. Being a fan more »

Buy the 3DS and Wii U Super Smash Bros, get music!

I don’t have a Wii U (it’s hard getting electricity out here in my mystical glade, and fairy dust only powers things for so long), but if I did, Super Smash Bros would be on my to-buy list. It’s definitely on my to-buy list for my 3DS. This is because Nintendo has always delivered a more »

I’m excited about 3DS themes

This is going to sound so silly, but I’m ridiculously excited about the 3DS themes. The Home Menu is going to get an upgrade thanks to new 3DS firmware, and that will let us customize the way . The image at the right is a good indication of what we can expect. See that? That’s more »

New 3DS is a huge mistake

Nintendo just made a surprise reveal of a new 3DS, called the New 3DS. This is a terrible name, not for the obvious reason of being a terrible name, but because Nintendo is about to completely alienate a huge portion of their fan base. You see, the New 3DS is a more capable machine than more »
