• Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

developed by Intelligent Systems, published by Nintendo 1 player / Nintendo GameCube / 2004.10.11 Like the N64 before it, the GameCube didn’t get too many RPGs. Intelligent Systems once again picks up the slack with a sequel to Paper Mario, subtitled The Thousand Year Door. This time Mario receives a letter from Princess Peach that […]

• Paper Mario

A review of Paper Mario (Nintendo 64). Also available on the Wii and Wii U virtual consoles.

• For Frog The Bell Tolls

developed & published by Nintendo 1 player / Nintendo GameBoy / 1992.9.4 For Frog The Bell Tolls is one of those Nintendo games that annoyingly never saw publication outside of Japan.

Perhaps as a result Vandal Hearts makes no attempt to reinvent the wheel, […]

• The Legend of Zelda – Majora’s Mask 3D

developed by Nintendo & Grezzo, published by Nintendo 1 player / Nintendo 3DS / 2015.3.13 Masks are present in almost every human culture, and some are said to spiritually transform the wearer during sacred rites. Despite this, scant few videogames feature masks as a primary element in either story or game design. Nintendo cleverly introduced […]

• Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune

Naughty Dog’s Uncharted does a good job of imitating Hollywood action movies, but most of its best moments take place in unplayable cut-scenes.
