This week, Save State columnist Vincent Mahoney spent all of his time playing Pokémon Legends Arceus. And while a full review is in the works, he has some initial thoughts that he needs to share with the Pokemon community of fans.
CrossCode has a long history of awards that is especially impressive for an indie title. But that did not keep it from sitting on Vince’s backlist, until now. And he’s really glad he finally unwrapped this grand gift to gamers.
The first Save State of the new year is a bit of a dichotomy as Vincent takes advantage of the many end of year game sales. At first, things are dark and gloomy with Ender Lilies, and then they go white hot in Burnout Paradise.
This week our Save State columnist has some guests in for Christmas, so he entertains them with repeated bouts of the oddly fun Mario Party Superstars. And then to unwind from all that fun, he dives into the even weirder Eastward adventure game. It’s holiday hijinks all week!
This week our Save State columnist takes a look at two action-heavy games from the past, the Record of Lodoss War Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth RPG and the Darius Gaiden shump.
This week our intrepid Save State game slayer tries to save Tokyo from a demon invasion in the extremely unique RPG Shin Megami Tensei V from Atlus.
Vincent spends some time with an old favorite, Castlevania. With classic games from that series wrapped up in new collections like the Castlevania Advance Collection, he’s almost getting carpal tunnel from swinging that whip.
Vincent had a great time with Blaster Master Zero II last year, so it makes sense that he would dive into the new Blaster Master Zero 3 game from Inti Creates. Three takes everything up a notch for some master blasting fun.
With Metroid Dread finally hitting the ground, Vincent goes deep into the back catalog of games to see how the series has evolved over the years, and makes some predictions about what we will find when we dive into the amazing world of Dread.
With Metroid Dread right on the horizon, our jittery Save State columnist dives into another revered title in that series, Metroid II: Return of Samus. Lets see how he does with this really old-school shooter.
