Retro Game Friday is a column by Michael Blaker covering various games from the past. This week he covers Pokemon Battle Revolution.
Fresh Look columnist Michelle Sayatovich has a bit of a love-hate relationship with the titles of the Kingdom Hearts series, having played many of them on different gaming systems. Most gamers probably have similar feelings about their own favorite, or not-so-favorite, franchise or series. So read on to see if this sounds familiar.
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.
This week our Save State Columnist gets pulled into quite a trial, or actually a series of them with The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. He gets so into it that he needs to take a break by heading into space with the classic Nintendo DS Game Meteos. It’s been a strange time, but the games are great!
This week Vincent gets down with the funk in Elite Beat Agents and grooves to sound of bone crunching in Draglade
This week our brave Save State Columnist dances enemies into submission with the alluring Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, then turns around and goes on an epic old-school quest with Radiant Historia. We may never see him again!
Michael’s back with another Mario game for this week’s Retro Game Friday. It’s Mario Hoops! This one was almost entirely a purely gimmick game to take advantage of the DS touch controls. So before any sports gamers start thinking that they missed something grand, know that Mario Hoops really wasn’t.
This week we take a look at a brand new visual novel series focused on adventure and romance that is coming to both consoles and mobile platforms. The first story is called Code Realize: Rebirth of the Guardian, so let’s dive right in.
We are roughly a week out from the release of the eighth generation of Pokemon games, Sword and Shield. To honor this momentous event, we are going back through the entire 23 year series history. Today we celebrate an interesting point in the franchise: Generation 5: Black and White.
