• The Legend of Zelda – The Wind Waker HD

developed & published by Nintendo 1 player / Nintendo Wii U / 2013.9.20 Having just completed The Legend of Zelda – Breath of the Wild, I wondered how well The Wind Waker would hold up. Originally released on the Game Cube in 2003, the HD remaster arrived on the Wii U a decade later. Not […]

• Vandal Hearts

developed & published by Konami 1 player / SONY PlayStation / 1997.3.27 Konami threw its hat into the turn-based strategy RPG arena with Vandal Hearts on the PlayStation, an unusual move for a publisher that had virtually no genre experience or reputation. 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.

[…]

• Demon’s Souls

developed by FromSoftware, published by Atlus, Bandai-Namco 1 player / PlayStation 3 / 2009.2.3 Sony clearly didn’t know what they had on their hands when they produced FromSoftware’s Demon’s Souls, opting not to publish it outside of Japan. It’s easy to see why: the game has an oppressive difficulty; it doesn’t explain itself very well; […]

• The Legend of Zelda – A Link Between Worlds

Nintendo returns to the well with A Link Between Worlds, a direct sequel to the classic Super Nintendo game, but brings with it some brand new tricks.

• Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

developed by Next Level Games, published by Nintendo 1 player with 1-4 player online mode / 2013.3.24 The Ghostbusters films have had several videogame adaptations over the years, but they’ve always been hit or miss. Nintendo finally showed how it should be done with the original Luigi’s Mansion, a launch title for its Gamecube system […]
