Stardew Valley Cancelled For Wii U

Stardew Valley Cancelled For Wii U Stardew Valley, a farming sim in the vain of Harvest Moon, was supposed to come out next month on the Wii U. Yesterday, the developer announced that they canceled the game for the system. They will be moving the game to the Nintendo Switch. We have the announcement and my thoughts on it below. Stardew Valley was...

Sub-5.0 Scores for Mario Tennis Unwarranted

Sub-5.0 Scores for Mario Tennis Unwarranted I’ve been playing Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for a good while now, and frankly, it is not the greatest game. However, I have been reading reviews of others, and while I agree with almost 100% of what they are saying, I’m shocked by the scores I’ve been seeing. Most notably for me was the 3.5 the game scored...

Axiom Verge Will Arrive On Wii U in September

Axiom Verge Will Arrive On Wii U in September When I first saw Axiom Verge, I just thought it was a Metroid clone. The game didn’t impress me at all. I wasn’t excited about the game coming to Wii U either. Why do we need Axiom Verge when we have Super Metroid? Recently though, I saw another trailer of the game and thought it looked good. Maybe I was wrong...

More Thoughts From Me #37: “What A Horrible Night To Have A Curse”

More Thoughts From Me #37: “What A Horrible Night To Have A Curse” Castlevania, the classic Konami franchise, has been around for awhile now. I hear its the game’s anniversary this year too. 30 years was it? I can’t remember. Thats not why I decided to talk about the series though! The reason I decided to talk about this series is because its October and that means Halloween...

Meet the Robinsons

Meet the Robinsons Videogames based on Disney movies are designed to launch right around the same time as the film, distract the kids for a week or two, and then get shelved. They might be pulled down again for another go when the movie comes out on DVD, but let’s face it — they’re made to be disposable. Still,...

TMNT

TMNT The side-scrolling beat-em-up is such an old formula that game designers hardly use it any more, but now I realize that we are totally missing out. The GBA version of TMNT is definitely the best version, beating out the high-resolution Xbox 360 game and utterly trouncing the pitiful releases on its handheld brothers...

Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider Say what you want about licensed games — it won’t be anything I haven’t said before — but the fact is, if it weren’t for them, aging systems like the GBA would probably already be out to pasture. Ghost Rider isn’t too picky in its multi-system road trip not to stop on the friendly-but-feeble...

Final Fantasy VI Advance

Final Fantasy VI Advance When those who aren’t familiar with video games ask me how the interactive medium can compete with the greatest works of the literary world or the sensory allure of the big screen, I am always left with a single argument. Video games, by their nature, entertain through immersion. You don’t read about...

Eragon

Eragon There are four different games based on the Eragon movie that’s coming out in the middle of December, all of which offer a different gaming experience. For fans of third-person action/adventure games, you’ve got the PS2/Xbox/360 version, or if you’re inclined toward handheld play, the DS version....

Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2

Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2 Super Robot Taisen is a series that, despite having been Japan-only for most of its life, has gained a very devout fan following internationally. I gave the first Original Generation a whirl to see what all the fuss was about, and while I had fun, I wasn’t really impressed. I liked the story and the characters...

Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis

Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis Note: When we initially ran this article, Gabe was operating under the mistaken impression that the game was based on the GameGear version of Sonic the Hedgehog. After a little research, we discovered this wasn’t the case, so the text of the review has been edited to reflect this. The score still stands,...

Scurge: Hive

Scurge: Hive Completely original games on portable systems are truly rare. Most of the time a company will either adapt an existing series or character to a less powerful, more portable format, or just forego the effort and snag a familiar license to slap on a poorly made action game. Developer Orbital Media is trying to buck...

Naruto: Ninja Council 2

Naruto: Ninja Council 2 Whenever an anime series becomes a long-running hit in Japan, you’ll see game companies eager to hop on the money train by putting out a plethora of licensed games. And with anime’s popularity at an all-time high in the US, we’re starting to see more and more of these games making the voyage...

Summon Night 2

Summon Night 2 Earlier this year, Atlus released Summon Night, showing GBA fans that there’s still some fight left in the handheld system. Though it was a solid title, it had some frustrating points that kept it from becoming a classic. It seemed that if these issues were resolved, Summon Night would have been a must-have...
