PN Review: Sportsball

November 20, 2014 |

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 … Read More

PN Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

November 20, 2014 |

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is finally here and the excitement couldn’t be higher. I am fully aware that pretty much anything I say in this review will be moot. I could say the game is the greatest or … Read More

PN Review: Xavier

November 19, 2014 |

Xavier is a prehistoric platformer where you help a young caveman on his coming of age quest.  It’s a very straightforward affair, totally functional yet unimaginative.  On a system with no shortage of high quality platformers, generic games like this … Read More

PN Review: Tengami

November 13, 2014 | 1

 

Tengami may not be the most complicated title on the Wii U, but Nyamyam’s tale is absolutely one of the most unique.

Tengami is designed to be a serene, relaxing game, so it makes sense that the … Read More

PN Review: Skylanders: Trap Team (Wi U)

November 11, 2014 |

Skylanders has been a dirty little secret of mine that I have kept from the public. Generally, Skylanders games are designed for children but I couldn’t help enjoying the story, humor and collecting those cool little Skylanders figurines. For me, Skylanders: … Read More

PN Review: Falling Skies

November 8, 2014 |

Falling Skies for the Wii U is a difficult game for me to rate because it seems to have some good things going for it, while at the same time it has some pretty nasty faults. Falling Skies is a … Read More

PN Review: Cosmophony

October 29, 2014 |

If I needed to sum up Cosmophony in one phrase, it would be: “Simple, quick, and extremely demanding”.

Cosmophony’s story is simple enough, and completely laid out in the beginning.  The previous guardian had been charged with protecting the universe, but … Read More

PN Review: Chests O’ Booty

October 22, 2014 |

Bored o’ those landlover match-three games?  Then you’ve found the right game ye’ scurvy scalawag.

If any genre is in need of a shakeup, it’s match-three puzzlers.  So I commend Wildmane Studios for trying something different with the stale titles.  … Read More
