Return to the planet of the Pikmin 9 years after the last installment into what I would consider to be Nintendo’s best franchise, with their hybrid of strategy, survival, puzzles and ladles filled with the adorable factor.
I’d never dipped my hand into the Monster Hunter universe before this game, but to my understanding, it’s a HD port of the Wii’s Monster Hunter Tri, with a refined structure and a large amount of new content. However, for a first time player, it was…well, it was actually pretty overwhelming.
For my first gaming review for this site, I had to review this game, I just had to. I’m in love with the Animal Crossing series and New Leaf has now beaten the original Animal Crossing for the top spot. And what can I say? If you don’t own a 3DS already, you need to. The 3DS has had a bit of a disappointing history, but there is a promising future for it and at the moment, there are actually some pretty decent games out now, and New Leaf is a must-buy for you if you do own a Nintendo 3DS.

Strategy series have been rampant in the world of video games over the years, but none of them have ever had as much heart and cunning as Fire Emblem’s installments have. Then this one came along and blew everything else in the past thirteen installments out the water with the deepest and most in-depth mechanics and systems that the franchise has ever offered previously.
Females in gaming are somewhat of an epic, and even after sitting and thinking, two females jump out to me more than almost every other one in existence – Lara Croft and Sarah Kerrigan. It may be because of the games I played when I was younger, but even putting that aside, Sarah is, by far, the strongest female that I can think of. Known by several names, such as the Queen of Blades and Queen Bitch of the Universe, the second instalment in Starcraft II focuses entirely on her.
Alrightie, let’s give this a go. As a writer, there’s nobody I admire more than Ryukishi07, and i’d like to claim to be a religious fan of most of his work. However, shortly after finishing up Umineko No Naku Koro Ni, he decided to take a break from his main franchise to practice his writing technique. This…is the result of it. An odd series about a different take on history, of prostitutes, the mafia and a young girl named Rose.
Trauma Team is the third instalment of the relatively famous franchise on the Nintendo Wii, and also the final. With this one, you’re living room becomes an entire hospital, and not just an operating theatre.
It’s a very strange place to start, reviewing a Pokemon game. Everyone knows Pokemon, and everyone knows and understands that it’s by far the most in-depth JRPG that will ever make the market. With hundreds of little and big creatures for you to catch and train, and thousands of moves for you to teach your friends, this doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what Pokemon really is. You can get incredibly in-depth with these little creatures, but this isn’t what i’m reviewing.
How’s this for something odd? Pokemon Colosseum debuted on the Nintendo Gamecube and received quite a large amount of hate when it was first released, with it’s sequel managing to get even more hate than ever before.
The Star Ocean franchise is something that’s actually become to be known as somewhat of a cult classic, and somewhat of an intergalactic space epic. Till The End of Time was the final game that I played, having played The Last Hope a very long time ago, and well…I was actually disappointing with this instalment into the franchise. Be it one thing or another, there was always something that was getting in the way of enjoyment and making me silently curse at the game, be it thinking “Won’t you SHUT UP?” or silently laughing myself to death inside.
