Stay Awhile and Listen

As a music loving, old school gaming lover of Japanese RPGs, it’s difficult to find something quite as unique and satisfying as The World is Square. Their folksy takes on this collection of JRPG tunes are at once relaxing and immensely nostalgic, lending themselves to plenty of gaming memories from my youth. On that point … Read More

Yoshi's New Island - Cover

The core mechanic of (painfully) producing and tossing eggs is as fun as ever, and I found myself having a great time carefully aiming my throws for maximum coin grabbing carnage. It’s as simple as finding an enemy, swallowing the poor fool whole, and pushing the egg out of poor Yoshi’s seemingly elastic butt.

I liken Into the Nexus to comfort food. We all anticipate and strive for those special 5 course meals, but there is something so satisfying about sitting down with an old favorite for a quick, guilty chow down

Of course, it had a host of its own issues as well, … Read More

New super Luigi U

Part of a noble effort to celebrate the anniversary of Mario’s oft forgotten green sibling, Nintendo launched a few games under the Year of Luigi banner and promoted several other existing titles that happened to feature the charming coward. Basically a DLC expansion pack for New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U re-purposed … Read More

Tomb-Raider

Unfortunately for me and my need to have my gaming opinions heard, I sometimes leave an article behind, either because of poor time management, absent-mindedness, or things getting in the way. This attempt at a Tomb Raider review is one such failed piece that I stumbled upon while digging through our article history. I’m embarrassed … Read More

OGF1

Expectations can skew any movie experience. Gazing around at the polarized reactions of my film reviewer peers to this film, I opted to go into Only God Forgives as if I knew nothing about it. I forgot that one of my favourite working actors, Ryan Gosling, took top billing. I completely ignored that Nicolas Winding … Read More
