4.5 / 5.0 - Pokken Tournament
Mar 19, 2016

From the expertly crafted combat mechanics to the wildly different contenders to the stages and customization options to unlock, Pokkén Tournament proves itself to be another excellent addition to the Nintendo Wii U's library for fighting game fans, Pokémon fans, and everyone in between. Plus, you can be a luchador Pikachu. Just let that sink in.

5 / 5.0 - SteamWorld Heist
Dec 21, 2015

Imagine & Form proved themselves to be formidable developers with the release of SteamWorld Dig, but SteamWorld Heist just takes it to another level in so many ways. It's simple yet ambitious with a presentation as charming as its execution.

As an exercise in wit, Back to Bed excels wonderfully.

5 / 5.0 - Shovel Knight
Jul 7, 2014

With some of the tightest controls and game mechanics I have seen in years, Shovel Knight acquires an excellence that I seldom experience in games nowadays, making this game a class act well worth the $15 price tag whether you get it on Wii U, 3DS, or Steam. With a phenomenal soundtrack to accompany the thoroughly crafted lands and lovely 8-bit visuals, there's a lot to love and help you become enthralled in this retro-style world.

4 / 5.0 - Goat Simulator
Apr 1, 2014

It's broken, but it's not a mess for being a title that spits on the face of physics. It's small, but there's a lot to try to do and the Workshop feature will be sure to bring more content by the truckloads. It's stupid, but it's brilli– no, it really is stupid as hell. Still, you can tell a lot of love went into this project. Plus, you can be a goat.

The visuals and music are gorgeous, as usual, with an eclectic mix of genres to match the game's fast, frantic, and flashy fighting gameplay. Fans of the previous games in the series won't be disappointed, and may find a lot to love in how the game has been treated, only expanding on its previous elements.

4 / 5.0 - NES Remix
Jan 31, 2014

At a pricetag of $15, it's easy to see how it can seem a bit steep for the overall concept, but the hundreds of levels makes the price that much more justifiable. Even if you don't have huge marathon sessions, you can expect to be playing it constantly and frequently, even if just for little while.

3 / 5.0 - Teslagrad
Jan 20, 2014

Teslagrad is a suitable platforming outing, but I'm much more excited for what the developers have next in store with this experience under their belt.

5 / 5.0 - Edge
Dec 9, 2013

Since its debut on iOS, Edge has remained a solid, challenging, and toe-tapping platformer that is still well worth checking out, whether its on the Wii-U eShop, Steam, or for mobile devices. Plus, you get to be a sweet disco cube in space.

3 / 5.0 - Blackguards
Nov 25, 2013

While the game is still currently in development, there is more than enough time for the developers to tweak the mechanics and make this a wonderful title that I would gladly recommend to fantasy and strategy fans, but right now, this just doesn't cut it. Hopefully, Blackguards won't remain as a sea of untapped potential. It feels like trying to eat delicious soup with just a fork; it's going to take too long, and there are just no spoons anywhere.
