71 / 100 - Star Fox Guard
May 13, 2016

Expanding Star Fox Guard into something that could be played online seemed like such an easy and obvious addition…which is why I’m glad they did it.

81 / 100 - Star Fox Zero
May 3, 2016

Part of what makes Star Fox so engaging, at least for me, is the atmosphere it lays out with its environments, number of enemies on screen, and of course music.

On the whole Hyrule Warriors Legends is a solid game built upon the strong foundation of its predecessor.

And yet, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam manages to bring the Mario Bros two wildest modern departures together in way that can't help but leave you smiling.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash is a well-built game, but feels like one of the weakest in the 'Mario Sports' series in terms of content.

82 / 100 - Yo-Kai Watch
Nov 4, 2015

Aside from it taking me (and potentially many others) an embarrassingly long time to get a handle on the combat system, this game is a good, solid package that I recommend, as it will offer loads of fun for those that have the time

Nintendo has once again managed to take a series that we all know and love, tell us that they're going to do something unthinkable to its formula, and somehow have us walk away not hating it.

With everything taken into account, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is a well-put together title. The pros outweigh the cons by leagues and it has fun packed into all the right places.

As a whole Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is pretty good. It is a solid package that uses everything that the 3DS has to offer and it's has loads of entertainment value for those that like to create…

If you really sit down and take a good long look at the big picture, Super Mario Maker could go down as the greatest Mario game ever made. It bridges Mario across thirty years of platforming, and puts the power in the player's hands to play Mario how they want. I myself cannot wait to see what the rest of the world has waiting for me to play, and I in turn can't wait to share my creations with the rest of you.

78 / 100 - Splatoon
May 27, 2015

Splatoon is a game that isn't afraid to get messy, and in this case, messy is absolutely a good thing.

It certainly isn't awful, but what strengths it does have only really appeal to the Kirby faithful, or less serious gamers.

87 / 100 - Hyrule Warriors
Sep 29, 2014

Hyrule Warriors surprised me in the best way it possibly could as I expected a decent and enjoyable, but not overly spectacular game, but what I got was the most fun I've had in a game in quite some time.

87 / 100 - Pushmo World
Aug 4, 2014

My experience with Pushmo World was one of pleasant surprise. I've seen previous Pushmo games from afar, but never bothered to give them the time of day. If I had to find something to complain about, it would be that it felt too short. I blew through all of the premade puzzles in little time, but this did give me more time to work on my own creations, as well as play the Pushmos of others.

As I sit hear wondering how to wrap up this review, a definite thought crosses my mind.  If you want to have a lovely gaming experience where you get fluffy kitties for free, plug Animal Crossing back into your 3DS; however, If you want to yell, spit, grow chest hair and really EARN your fluffy kitties, buy Scram Kitty and His Rail Buddies, as the game is surprisingly addictive as it is rage inducing and fun all at the same time.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, is a great, even perspective changing game that showed me that games don’t need endless action to be fun.

Even with a few minor hiccups along the way, Mario Party Island Tour is destined to be a 3DS group favorite for years to come, no doubt.
