Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition Art

It’s been over three years since we last explored Ferelden and the world of Thedas, and gamers have been yearning for a game to cleanse their palate of Dragon Age II. With the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare has made up for all the wrongdoings of its predecessor by creating a real, breathing world on the brink of chaos, as well as a complex and satisfying gameplay experience.

Top Ten Failed Video Game Reboots

Sonic Boom Banner

Sometimes a game character goes away. Every now and then they come back.

Sometimes a game character comes back. Every now and then it doesn’t go as planned.

While this list could almost entirely be populated by Sonic the Hedgehog reboots, I’ll limit it to just one reboot per franchise. Regardless, having to place a limit on how many times a franchise can be on a “Top Ten Failed Video Game Reboots” list should tell you something. Read the rest of this entry »

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 Video Review

By now you all likely know the first chunk of DLC for Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 is here. It has three new characters for your racing pleasure, including Link from the Legend of Zelda series, as well as a few new karts to use, and eight brand new tracks! To help take it all in, I’ve created a review video breaking down all the new content, what’s good, what isn’t, and why you should pick it up if you haven’t already!

Sunday Roundup: 11/16/14

Nintendogs Chihuahua and Friends CoverNintendogs: Chihuahua & Friends
DS
Release Date: August 22nd, 2005

Purchased at: Goodwill (Cupertino, CA – $4)

I was hoping to find a lot more games this trip, but alas only a nice copy of Nintendogs showed up. I went to a new Goodwill this time (in Mountain View) and it actually had a handful of GBA games, but none worthwhile. Same thing for DS games. But it DID have some old N64 games, including a boxed, albeit beat up, copy of Yoshi Story! Also… a copy of Shaq-Fu for $7. Yeah, that’s right… SEVEN DOLLARS!!!

Review: Fantasy Life

Fantasy Life Logo

Level-5, the company behind the elite DS/3DS Professor Layton series, has stepped into the world of fantasy RPG with the aptly titled Fantasy Life. Parts Final Fantasy, parts Animal Crossing, and a healthy dose of Diablo-like gameplay, Fantasy Life is a game that has a lot to offer gamers on the go. Small nuisances keep this life from being the greatest, but the game offers such an extensive amount of content you’ll have plenty of activities to keep you happy for dozens of hours.

Sunday Roundup: 11/9/14

New Games (11-9-14)I can officially say the craziness of the eBay auctions has officially ended this week. The last couple of orders have come in, and there is only one more game that I’ve ordered that I’m waiting on (which should have been here by now, because I ordered it well over two weeks ago). This week was also special because a coworker of mine actually gave me some of her old, albeit beat up, Sega Saturn games! And Laura and I made a trip to San Jose we don’t commonly make, and I was able to secure a copy of a game to finish up a DS trilogy. All around a fun week in collecting!

Sunday Roundup: 11/2/14

New Games (11-2-14)After a small vacation last weekend, I’ve combined two weeks worth of games for this Roundup. And to justify why there are so many games this week so I don’t feel too bad about myself, after the previous Roundup I also happened to buy some games, so really… it’s three week’s worth of games. That makes this massive pile of games more reasonable sounding, right?

Right?
