REVIEW – Old Skool Super Controller for SNES Classic

Hope You Don’t Have To Go This Route I was lucky enough to snag myself a SNES Classic, one of the hardest gadgets to find over the last several months since its initial release. I was unlucky enough to have one of my official Nintendo SNES Classic controllers die on me for no reason; I …

REVIEW – Wulverblade Xbox One Review

Stopping the Invasion A love letter to ‘90s beat’em ups, Wulverblade is a brutally animated game that plays and feels like a new Final Fight or Streets of Rage. Developed by Fully Illustrated and published by Darkwind Media, this 2D side-scrolling brawler might be considered an indie game but plays and feels like a AAA …

REVIEW – Mutant League Football 2018 Xbox One

Giving New Meaning to a Shotgun Offense Originally released on the Sega Genesis in 1993 and published by EA, Mutant League Football became a fan favorite thanks to the ridiculous premise of skeletons and ghouls literally killing each other during a game of football. Now, revived thanks to a successful kickstarter campaign, Mutant League Football …

REVIEW – BRAWL Switch

Bomberman Act Zero 2? BRAWL takes the standard Bomberman formula and tries to freshen things up by adding a grotesque coat of paint with morbid characters that feature unique abilities. However, loose controls, a nonsensical plot, and overall poor design choices make BRAWL a bad Bomberman knockoff even considering the lower $10 price tag. The …

REVIEW – Party Planet Switch

Apparently The Planet Is Having A Party With many controller and display options, the Switch is built for local multiplayer experiences and Party Planet takes advantage of Nintendo’s latest hardware. It is no Mario Party but at least this mini game compilation gives Switch owners something to chew on before the inevitable Mario Party 11 …

REVIEW – River City: Rival Showdown 3DS Review

Stick With It Over the last few years, 3DS owners have been blessed with original River City games. I still think River City: Tokyo Rumble is one of the best games on the 3DS eShop and River City: Knights of Justice also should please any fan of the beat’em up genre. Rival Showdown separates itself …
