NS Review: Pandora’s Tower (Wii U eShop)

Back in the golden days of the Nintendo Wii, there was a trio of Japanese RPGs released to differing acclaim in the West. This boon came during the time that the Wii was seen as a, for the lack of a better term, “kiddie console”; so the fact that three unique JRPGs were brought to … Continue reading

The Light at the End of your 3DS Gaming Session

I’ll be honest from the start; I’ve never been a hardcore Nintendo fan.  Nintendo games have always been a bit twee for me.  I never really liked Mario, I was always a Sonic fan during their early rivalry.  I much preferred hitting people at supersonic speed than jumping on the head of a mushroom moving … Continue reading
