    Sportsball is as much a party game as it is a sports one.  It’s described by the developers as “soccer, jousting, and flying birds”, and that’s a spot on synopsis.  Read on as I expound on the game’s specifics, and explain why I think it’s a must for multiplayer fans. With four teams, sixteen unique birds, ten stadiums, and many modes, content isn’t in short supply … when playing with friends anyway.  I’ll elaborate on that in a bit. Customization allows you to tailor the experience to your liking also, with over ten different options.  With both competitive and…

You and your Kefling friend will need to collect raw materials necessary to expand the population. You’ll need to manage how the Keflings interact with their environment by giving them jobs such as miner, lumberjacks, and transporter. The longer they are working, the more they level up (but only to a maximum of level five). The world in World of Keflings is charming. The Keflings who inhabit the world have their own little quarks,…

    “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.” These days, with the advent of the always connected console, Shigeru Miyamoto’s quote may not ring quite as true; but for my money, I certainly wish it still was. Just this last month I have been burned by numerous titles, that had they been released only a decade ago, would have been deemed broken and unplayable. Mind you, these aren’t just your run of the mill shovelware or children’s titles put out to make a quick buck. I’m talking big budget AAA games made by some of the biggest…

While many are bouncing with excitement, others are cringing at the thought of tackling this franchise misfit again. All this brings us to an enormously debated question: Where does Majora’s Mask sit in the Zelda hierarchy? Is it truly a brilliant masterpiece, misunderstood by some but revered by others, full of unique twists, innovative storylines and refreshing characters? Or is it an overrated misstep, a…

    Amiibo are pretty awesome little figures. The ability to turn figurines into Smash Bros. fighters that can learn from your own moves is just a plain cool idea, and the way they work across multiple games has the potential to be something pretty sweet. Three waves of Amiibo have been announced so far, each with increasingly niche characters, which of course means that more people get interactive figures of their favorites. Unfortunately, it’s becoming increasingly clear that some of these will be retailer exclusive. First was the announcement that Gamestop would be the only place that…

These games are great not only because of this, but because they take simple concepts and make them challenging while still employing modern techniques. Ping 1.5+ is one of those games that feels like a […] Related posts: Arrow Time U Review Tengami Review (Wii U eShop) Gravity Badgers Review (Wii U eShop)
