This New Pokemon Sun & Moon is Really, Really Good!
Have you guys gotten the new Pokemon Sun & Moon yet? I actually bought two two-packs yesterday…pricey, yes, but that’s what happens when you have a Nintendo family with 4 people wanting to play right away! And it’s a bit of a surprise, even to myself, that I’m jumping in to Pokemon at all…...
Everyone On The Planet Is Playing Pokemon Go, So Why Are Reviews So Average?
Meet Kristin. Kristin is 32 years old and heard about a new game called Pokemon Go the day it was released for her iPhone. That night, she created her character, learned the basics of the game, and then caught her first Pokemon, a Squirtle, before she went to bed. The next morning, she caught some […]
Game Reviewers Have No Idea When It Comes to Chess
I was at Best Buy the other day checking out the PS4 game selection because I still only have the one physical game for my system, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Several games were discounted to $20, including Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which I had in my hands for several minutes. Ultimately, I went with […]

RETRO REVIEW: DDR Mario Mix for Gamecube
In 2005, a revolution was going on.  A Dance Dance Revolution!  Nintendo wanted in on a piece of the action and did so by partnering with the once-significant Konami to produce DDR Mario Mix for the Gamecube.  I never got the game back then, but I was part of that revolution.  You see, a few years after […]
My Thoughts on the Majora’s Mask 3DS Remake
For the last many years I’d always say to whoever would listen that Majora’s Mask was the only Zelda-series game that I’ve never beaten.  Yes, I’d played it in the early 2000’s but my only feint memories of it were a little confusion, a strange clock system, and a general disinterest.  While the iconic...
What is the Wii U?
The Wii U is Nintendo’s successor to the wildly popular Wii and a completely new console that was released on November 18th, 2012.  The console’s main feature is an iPad-like device, called a GamePad, that the player can use as a controller (and touchscreen) while it also provides a primary view of the game or a...
