A slight twist on a mostly familiar adventure
December 30, 2015 - As a fan of the Tales series ever since Symphonia came out for GameCube, I jumped at the opportunity to play and review this latest installment. However, is this just another standard game in the series or is it different enough to stand up on its own?

Practical puzzler meets slave labour
December 30, 2015 - Games rarely provide players with unlimited freedom to solve puzzles however they wish. In comes Infinifactory which allows you to let your imagination run wild and build complex factories, but enough talk; let's get to work!

A sweet sequel to a fun franchise
December 28, 2015 - As a follow-up to a well-loved, competitive multiplayer franchise, Fat Princess Adventures' co-op action role playing makeover had some big shoes to fill. Having myself spent more than a couple of hours shoving cake down royal throats in the original Fat Princess, I had to admit a certain amount of hesitancy when I first booted up the game. Fortunately, Fat Princess Adventures delivers a sweet update to the series, maintaining the world's strangely dark sense of humor and cutesy aesthetic while providing some harmless hack 'n' slash fun.

Zizou's back and more stylish than ever
December 26, 2015 - I always get excited when an unexpected sequel to an underrated game comes out. The Legend of Dark Witch 2 expands on the original formula but does it offer enough of a new experience to be a worthy follow-up?

A new approach to a magical world
December 24, 2015 - Trine has won over audiences with its beautiful visuals and tight puzzle platforming gameplay. However, this step into the third dimension is a huge departure for the series. Does it still deliver the magic or were our heroes better off in a two dimensional world?

A strange tale of an odd fellow
December 23, 2015 - It always takes moxie to craft a unique gaming experience. Von Sottendorff's adventure combines sliding tile puzzles and 3D platforming gameplay in an interesting and trippy world but is it worth taking enough substances to enjoy the ride?

December 21, 2015 - Top-down racers are a forgotten genre but thankfully BlazeRush is here to bring it new life. Although it debuted last year, this polished iteration is better than ever so slip on your driving gloves and let's take it to the track.

A captivating yet flawed world
December 20, 2015 - Wii U finally has a system-selling RPG. After spending the past two weeks almost exclusively playing it, I've now completed Xenoblade Chronicles X. I'm a huge fan of all things Xeno but does this installment live up to its predecessors?

A less than stellar shooter
December 19, 2015 - I have a deep, abiding love for top-down, twin-stick shooters. I love the power-ups and the spray shots and the strafing and that sweet feeling of taking down a wall of enemies with just a sliver of health to spare. Unfortunately, Zotrix doesn't seem to understand on a very fundamental level what makes my heart go all pitter-patter for those games.

December 15, 2015 - PaRappa's been in the hip-hop game longer than most rappers. This sequel to his debut title is full of fresh rhymes that'll keep your head bobbin' and thumbs tappin' so pick up the microphone and start spittin' wit' ya dog.
