Video Review: Muramasa: The Demon Blade

Often regarded as one of the Wii’s best hidden gems, how does Vanillaware’s action RPG actually play? It’s definitely beautiful, but it wasn’t the best game out there. Watch my video review for all the details!

Worth Playing vol. 9: The Wii One

Muramasa the Demon Blade ArtThe Wii is officially a generation past and with the bizarre exception of Rodea: They Sky Soldier releasing as a Wii title paced in with the Wii U version, there aren’t going to be anymore games created for Nintendo’s money-making, motion controlled system. The system has sold over 100 MILLION units worldwide, making it one of the best selling video game consoles of all time (and Nintendo’s best selling non-handheld console to date). With that many units on the market it can be easy to skip over a few gems while playing arguably some of the best games out there like Super Mario Galaxy and Resident Evil 4. I’ve compiled a list of ten awesome Wii games that are worth tracking down, even as we’re approaching the little-console-that-could’s 9th birthday! And while the Wii U is chugging along strongly, these games can also be played on that console as well, giving even more incentive to find and play them! Read the rest of this entry »

Free Play: Tornado Outbreak

After finding the game for just a dollar, I decided to give it a spin.

If more games were this cheap and this good, I don’t think I’d ever leave the house!

Video Review – Octomania

It’s been a loooong time since I was active on YouTube, but I’m happy to say I’m back! I’ve already cut and edited three brand new video reviews for your viewing pleasure!

The first game for you all to enjoy and gawk at on your fancy computer screens is Octomania, a truly bizarre puzzle game straight out of Japan. It’s campy, it’s silly, it is never going to win any awards, but it’s a game I won’t soon forget! Enjoy!

Sunday Roundup: 9/14/14

Honeycomb Beat CoverHoneycomb Beat
DS
Release Date: March 27th, 2007
Purchased at: Online (Amazon – $4)

In my usual perusing of Amazon’s wares I discovered this game was only $4, with Prime shipping! A brand new game for less than $5 is always a great deal, especially when it’s a game I’m genuinely curious about. Honeycomb Beat is a rhythm game that uses hexagons and tapping on the touch screen to keep the rhythm. Reviews are pointing out the game isn’t the greatest and may be better off as a minigame in a bigger collection of games, but I’m still very happy to call it my own!

NATM wii LINERMad Dog Mccree: Gunslinger Pack
Wii
Release Date: June 16th, 2009
Purchased at: Online (eBay – $8)

Call me crazy, but I’ve been eying this game for a long time now. Searching through Amazon’s listings, GameStop’s relatively useless online directory, and finally eBay’s hit-or-miss auctions, I was finally able to track down the game on someone’s poorly listed auction. I say poorly listed because they didn’t show any pictures an instead opted to just give descriptions of the product. Thankfully, the game is complete, albeit with a few stickers that’ll have to be removed, but that’s it. Mad Dog McCree itself is a collection of live-action shooting games from the 90’s. So yeah, it’s gonna be bad.

Review: Guilty Party

Guilty Party Banner

Point and click games are some of the oldest video games out there. Despite the tenure of the genre, we don’t see too many of them spring up nowadays, likely because we’ve moved past them in the medium. Technology lets us do a lot more with games, so the archaic ways of the past usually stay in the past. Once in a blue moon a fun point and click games does arise from the proverbial ashes to make me wonder why it ever went away in the first place. Enter Guilty Party (sometimes referred to as Disney’s Guilty Party), a point and click crime drama following a very socially inclusive family trying to get to the bottom of a heinous household mystery. If you are a Wii U gamer looking for sleeper hits or unknown greats for the Wii, I would easily consider this game a “Hidden Gem” that is well worth your time! Read the rest of this entry »

Sunday Roundup: 4/20/14

New Games (4-20-14)I was trying to think of some way to tie in Easter with this week’s roundup of games, but I couldn’t really think of any way ninjas or talking gorillas could be incorporated. I guess Mario (and to a lesser extent Wario) have some affiliation with Yoshi, who produces eggs by defeating enemies. I’m not going to dive any further into this failed analogy…

But I will tell you that a semi-sweet deal at GameStop lead me to these games. Usually the Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal is a great time for me to go nuts, but this weekend it was altered to only include games $20 or under. Kind of lame, but thankfully there are plenty of games under twenty bucks that I’d want to buy. Four, apparently!
