Retro racing at its most exciting
September 7, 2015 - After over 25 years, the follow-up to Nintendo's classic dirt bike racer is finally available in North America. It may just be more of the same with some added extras, but when it comes to Excitebike... is that really a bad thing?

In Soviet Russia, pixel slime you!
August 31, 2015 - It seems like the Wii U eShop is gathering a collection of bad games comparable to LJN's NES library. In comes Pixel Slime and his one-note high score chaser that'll keep you mildly entertained (and slightly irritated) for an hour tops.

Wario finally made a fish-themed Cho Aniki style shoot 'em up
August 27, 2015 - Shmups don't have to be serious and this game is proof of that. With an over the top premise and unexpected twists throughout, you'll keep swimming and shooting just to see what happens next. But enough of that, let's dive in!

Meet Canvas; the sneakiest reptile since Solid Snake
July 24, 2015 - It's definitely a promising sight whenever you see a 2D platformer that implements stealth mechanics. That being said, not all games handle stealth equally. Does Canvaleon have what it takes to stand out in the genre or is it too well camouflaged for its own good?

A tale of a boy and his radioactive frog
July 23, 2015 - Long before Metroidvania was a common term, Blaster Master helped define the genre. It remains one of gaming's dearest memories with its multiple gameplay perspectives, awesome soundtrack, and wicked boss fights, but does it still hold up more than 25 years later?
