Sunday Roundup: 2/9/14

Dropcast CoverDropcast
DS
Release Date: September 22nd, 2008
Purchased at: GameStop (San Jose, CA – $5)

The cover for this game caught my eye first, and then the somewhat intriguing gameplay was what pushed me over the edge to buy. Oh, and that price wasn’t bad either. In Dropcast you are matching cubes but also casting spells in some way (I’ve yet to play it), and then there’s something about the main character’s teddy bears all coming alive? And it looks really evil?

Did I mention it was only five dollars?

Laters,

Remembering THQ

THQ LogoWith most of its IPs sold, its development houses auctioned off, and the company in the aftermath of bankruptcy, THQ is gone. While companies shutting their doors is always a somber moment, we as gamers can hold out hope that the developers formerly of THQ will find work and continue making great, quality video games for us to enjoy for many more generations.

Gaming News: 11/24/12

What happened last week? Something big… something noteworthy…

Something. Ugh, I can’t think of it.

Oh yeah! The Wii U was released, and that’s pretty much what every news piece concerning games related to this week. Still though, some stories sneaked through the Wii U dominance and caught my eye as well this week. Read the rest of this entry »

This Week in Gaming News: 6/16/12 – 6/22/12

Apparently Nintendo is too good for E3 and decided to present some announcements this week that easily could have made up for some of the sub-par presentations the company did during the convention. No matter, we have bigger things to take care of, like the first DLC for Mass Effect 3, and a big detail about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. title.

And oh yeah, a new Professor Layton game is coming to North American 3DS owners. Finally…
