    • 5 Wii U Games That We Are Missing, And We Should Get

      Weirdly enough, the Wii U is the only console without a Tetris game which is kind of disappointing, and the closest thing to this famous puzzle game is Heptrix, an eShop entry by the developer Jose Varela. It’s not like this in Japan, where SEGA published Puyo Puyo Tetris. Developed by the popular Sonic Team, this crossover mixes two of the most famous puzzle games (like the ti ...

  • Review: Citizens of Earth

    … RPG player, the game’s inspirations are immediately clear – SNES RPGs like Earthbound and Chrono Trigger. What sets Citizens of Earth apart is its cast of kooky characters and its whimsical sense of humor. The game isn’t afraid to make fun of its own conventional mechanics. The dialogue, which is in large part very well voice-acted, is chock-full…

  • Citizens of Earth Review: Citizens United

    … Although the era of SNES adventure games largely passed me by, I've poured a ton of hours into Pokemon, along with a number of GameCube era adventure RPGs. So, the spirit of what Citizens of Earth tries to capture isn't completely lost on me. While the adventure is certainly creative and wacky, it meanders a bit too much to earn a second term…

  • These Drawings Were Made By the Bad Guys In Legend of Zelda

    … The other day I was playing SNES on an emulator and it suddenly struck me: The incredible amount of work that went into creating every single tiny box of light on that screen. It sounds like a simple point, but less so when you glimpse the math and complexity behind 1990s-era video games in action. The drawing you see below was made by a pen…
