GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Austin's exhaustive StarFox Zero video review

Man, allergies are kililng me. I've noticed a lot of people are really having trouble with allergies lately. I feel your pain, friends! Let's all suffer through the pain and hopefully kick the ass of these meddlesome plants! See you in a few, short hours.

I've talked about StarFox Zero at great length. I've done so in our written review, and I've gone into even more detail on our podcast. You absolutely know how I feel and why I feel those ways. I happen to think the game was very unfairly crapped on by a large section of reviewers. That's all well and good, but what if someone infinitely more intelligent and eloquent took a look at the game? That's where our friend Austin steps in.

Austin takes a break from Eggbusters this week to give us an extremely detailed and well thought-out video review of StarFox Zero. No one out there creates content like Austin. That's true for Eggbusters and equally true here. Please, do yourself a favor and set aside a half hour for this feature.

Fire Emblem Fates - review

Here is portion from a EuroGamer review of Fire Emblem Fates:

How brilliant, then, that it's been so generous with Fates. There's no wrong way or right way to play this game. No matter what path you take, you're rewarded with a fine adventure, with strategy that plays out with an impeccable sense of craft and quite simply one of the 3DS' very best games. Across its different flavours, Fire Emblem Fates offers ample choice, rewarding each in turn with plentiful spoils. If you really want to see Fire Emblem at its finest, though, there's only one way to go. Reset? Bring it on.

The Deer God - review

Here is a portion of a Nintendolife review of The Deer God, out on the Wii U eShop...

The Deer God is beautiful. Sadly, that beauty is only skin deep. Poor design choices take away from fantastic visuals that really have to be seen. With the right level of polish, this could have been one of our favourite indie games on Wii U.

Instead, clumsy quest design, repetitive environments and poor performance ensure The Deer God will be remembered as little more than eye candy.

Famitsu - This week's review scores (5/17/16)

Only one Nintendo game was reviewed in this week's issue of Famitsu, and it is the following:

Densha Unten Shirei! Toukaidou-hen (3DS) – 7/7/7/7 [28/40]

Pocket Card Jockey - review

Here's what Gaming Nexus has to say about Pocket Card Jockey for the 3DS:

Pocket Card Jockey is somewhat addicting and is fun to play and can be done in short bursts.  Even if you don’t know anything about horse racing, most people are likely familiar with Solitaire in some form and the game does a nice job of teaching you about the mechanics of both.  As a low-cost title and with a demo on the eShop, Pocket Card Jockey is a fun way to pass the time.

Pocket Card Jockey - review

Here's a portion of a written review for Pocket Card Jockey from Nintendo Everything:

Have you ever wanted to play solitaire while strategically directing your horse in a derby? No? Me neigh-ther. At least, that would have been my answer before having played Pocket Card Jockey. It has opened my eyes to the merit of a hybrid solitaire-horse-racing and light-RPG-horse-management game by melding so many different elements into something equally deep as it is cute. At the surface level, it initially seems like such an incohesive idea. But through some excellent game systems planning, the developers managed to meld what would seem to be an indecipherable mishmash of ideas and genres into a gameplay structure with systems that work perfectly with one another while providing reasonable room for depth. Aside from a few minor technical issues, I can’t think of anything from a design standpoint that I would change. I didn’t really know what to think of Pocket Card Jockey going in, but it has absolutely become one of my favorite 3DS games.
