A Half-Assed Epic Mickey Review…

A Half-Assed Epic Mickey Review…
2

…half-assed because I didn’t finish the game, and probably never will, which kind of shocks me.  As a fan of all things RPG and Disney, the combination of the two usually equals instant obsession and a loss of several months for me (Kingdom Hearts…. ahh, now that was a good summer). It’s not that I [...]

Dr. Noh’s Sin and Punishment: Star Successor Review

Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Earth (2000) for the Nintendo 64 is one of my favorite games of all time, so when Sin and Punishment: Star Successor was announced in 2008, to say I was excited is and understatement.

Sonic and the Secret Rings
4.5

I’ve just spent my first half hour with the new Sonic game, and I have quite a few impressions on the title.  First of all, I feel exactly how I felt after I played the first Sonic for the Genesis.  There’s a marvelous wow factor that permeates you with the gameplay and the sense of [...]

The sweet, delicious crack known as Mario Kart Wii.

What the hell happened to my Wii? Better yet, what the hell happened to Nintendo?! I’m beginning to believe that Nintendo is recovering from that severe head-up-the-ass injury that took place between 1996 and 2005. First they release Zelda, Twilight Princess… and the people rejoice at its beauty and depth. Then comes Super Paper Mario… [...]

Mario Kart Wii

                                   The showdown has begun. Mario Kart Wii vs. Grand Theft Auto 4. Personally, I’m thinking GTA4 will edge out the Kart, but with the sheer number of Wii systems that have been sold, Mario Kart has the potential to outdo the competition just from playing the potential numbers. My mom has already mentioned [...]
