Maybe I Don’t Want an Open-World Sonic Game, After All?

A new trailer was recently released for Sonic Frontiers, that upcoming open-world Sonic game that seems to be receiving some pretty mixed reception.  And considering Sega’s past track record with the franchise, it stands to reason that fans are feeling a range of emotions, from hopeful optimism and excitement to a gnawing conviction that the…

Joe & Mac: A Prehistoric Blast from the Past

When I was a duckling, my parents were responsible for buying all the games for the SNES.  After all, my dad actually got it as some sort of gift from his workplace, and for some inexplicable reason, I was too “afraid” to play any of the games when I was especially young, meaning my parents…

When the Past Was Around: Demo Review

While I’m not normally the type to play casual games, I’ve been finding them to be increasingly relaxing as of late.  In particular, I’ve been trying out demos for various point-and-click puzzle games, one of which is called When the Past Was Around.  The game has a simple, but pleasant art style and tells the…

Kirby Works Extremely Well in Three Dimensions

Having long since grown bored of the tired old Kirby formula, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has brought a much needed change to a series that’s grown a bit stale.  Not so very long ago, I reviewed the game’s demo, and I’ve now returned to talk about my full experience with the pink puffball’s new…

I’m Still Not a Big Fan of Super Mario 64

I don’t really like Super Mario 64.  There, I said it.  I understand that the game was a big deal for its time, considering it was one of the first 3D platformers ever made.  While that is certainly something to be admired, I never really had the best opinion of this game.  In fact, I…

Top 6 Worst Stars in Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 may have been a classic of its time, but that didn’t prevent it from being a major pain as far as certain stars were concerned.  I was able to complete the game 100% years ago, and I attempted the feat once more during my recent recording of the game for YouTube.  As…

Hoa: A Beautiful and Relaxing Platformer

Hoa (pronounced “hwa”) is Vietnamese for “flower” and also the name of a lovely indie game and said game’s titular character, a tiny fairy-like creature the size of a bug.  This relaxing game features stunning hand-painted artwork, a beautiful soundtrack, and a peaceful atmosphere where the focus is solely on platforming and minor puzzling.  This…

Dr. Loboto, Swaine, and Freddy Join the Duck in Miitopia

I’m still working my way through Miitopia, a charming RPG where you can choose the faces of every character in the game.  Very soon, our Youtube playthrough shall be taking a break, which will be temporary or permanent depending on the views.  I’ve already written a review about the demo, and now I’d like to…
