G.G. Assault Buster - review

This is part of a G.G. Series Assault Buster review...

G.G Series ASSAULT BUSTER could be argued as being the finest entry in this arcade focused series yet. The nature of the gameplay lends itself well to score chasing and the dynamic combat, upbeat soundtrack and excellent spritework all mix well into a satisfying whole. If you're going to pick up only one of the dozens of G.G games out yet, we'd recommend that this is the one you buy.

AVGN Adventures - 3DS review

This is part of a AVGN Adventures 3DS review from NintendoLife...

Both versions of AVGN Adventures are solidly constructed titles that fans of the brand and challenging platformers will likely love, but those small, loving touches on the 3DS version feel all that more attuned with the spirit of retro and the brand of the Nerd, giving it an edge if those things matter to you. Perhaps there's some nostalgic bias at play here, and those who prize sharper graphics and bigger screens aren't in the wrong at all. If you want to be taken back to the past as much as possible, though, this one delivers more.

Shiftlings - review

This is from a Shiftlings review, published over on Nintendo World Report...

Shiftlings is a solid yet unspectacular first effort from a rookie developer, though I do hope it's not the last we see from Sierra. If you can put aside the obsession with finding everything in a level, there's a pretty fun game here – just be ready to fiddle with the sound options.

Earthbound Beginnings - review

This is part of a review for Earthbound Beginnings...

Earthbound Beginnings is a game I didn’t imagine I would be playing a few weeks ago. But now that I have, I enjoyed the experience. It shows its age, with an antiquated script and relentless grinding, but the wit and humor that other Earthbound/Mother games possess shines through. Even with the grinding, my fascination with the game never truly peaked. Judging it solely on it’s own merits, the original Earthbound is a charming, engaging game that lays a great foundation for its future sequels.

Comic Workshop 2 - review

Here's a portion from a NintendoLife review...

Without sugarcoating it, Comic Workshop 2 is nearly identical to the original Comic Workshop application that released just under a year ago. There are a few minor tweaks that optimize the overall package, including the notable ability to post your creations to Miiverse, but it hardly feels like a completely new release. All of the changes seen here are welcome improvements, but they feel like things that should have been patched as a free update to Comic Workshop rather than released as a numbered sequel. That being said, if you skipped the first Comic Workshop this is an excellent application that offers up a wide array of virtual equipment that makes both creating and sharing comics and manga a breeze.

Never Alone - review

A portion from a NintendoLife review..

Never Alone offers fascinating insights into Alaskan Native culture, particularly in the interviews, video footage, and artifacts curated by the developers in tandem with the Iñupiat themselves. Unfortunately, it falls short in its ambitions as a game, particularly when it comes to control and performance. An abundance of glitches, occasional framerate issues, and some truly dodgy collision detection make this puzzle platformer a difficult one to recommend. If you've got enough patience you'll probably be able to mine for the diamonds in the rough - but the easily frustrated should steer far clear.
