Tomodachi Life Review – Nintendo 3DS

tomodachilifecoverart

I’ll get right to the point with this Tomodachi Life review. This game is weird. Very weird. It takes some getting used to. But the weirdness soon morphs into uniqueness. After you play for a bit, everything clicks, you understand the game, you realize what Nintendo’s intentions were when developing the game. In fact, it’s very brave game design. The game’s essence asks, “Is it possible to care about digital friends?”The point of the game is to create Miis that all live together in the same apartment building located inside the game’s world. All your Miis are neighbors (some live […]

E3 2014: Hands-On with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

smashbroswiiu

Written by Michael Barryte – Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has a lot riding on it. I’m not simply talking about hype and delivering a stellar multiplayer experience, but the game has to also move Wii U units and maybe even impress the competitive Smash Bros. community, still clamoring for a proper follow-up to Super Smash Bros. Melee. (To find out more about the competitive Melee scene, check out the documentary The Smash Brothers.)Game director Masahiro Sakurai is fully aware of the hype and has met the fans with full force. Last year he delighted us all with the […]

E3 2014: Hands-On with Project Guard and Project Giant Robot

projectguard

Written by Michael Barryte – The house that Mario made owes a lot to the man who made Mario. Shigeru Miyamoto is known for his off-kilter way of thinking and designing games and truly shaping Nintendo. Sadly, though, the Wii U has still not found it’s footing, some of it stemming from developer confusion as to what to do with the GamePad and this is where Miyamoto has stepped in. Along with heading up the next Star Fox game, Miyamoto has focused his attention on two very different games, Project Guard and Project Giant Robot, that focus on the GamePad […]

E3 2014: Hands-On with Splatoon and SlashDash

splatoonlogo

Written by Michael Barryte – Splatoon is a wonderfully fresh approach to shooters. The game isn’t about taking out an opponent, but a battle between teams to soak the arena in as much of their paint as possible. Add on top of that the ability for players to transform into squids to refill their ink and swim around and even up walls, and Splatoon quickly becomes a game of strategy as well. Players are rewarded for covering areas to gain access to special items to further soak the field and obliterate opponents. In squid form, players can also perform a […]

E3 2014: Hands-On with Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

smashbros3ds

Written by Michael Barryte – For so long Super Smash Bros. has been a series that existed purely on consoles, but this October, we’ll be getting a fresh taste of Smash on our portable 3DS screens, making for a very different, but familiar experience. The game handles much like its Wii U counterpart. It feels faster than Brawl (but not quite the lightning of Melee) while characters and hits have more heft to them; but while characters handle the same, the means to handle them is quite different as this is the first true and complete departure from the GameCube […]
