Every so often I am tasked with reviewing a game that I’m no good at. It doesn’t happen that often as I can often find my way through any type of game. Sports, platform, action, shooter, RPG, whatever the genre I can get it done. This is one of those games that isn’t really hard to play, I’m just no good at it.

Teyon’s Governor of Poker blends a good old fashioned Texas Hold’Em style poker with some RPG elements. Your goal in the game isn’t simply to play poker, which this game does well. You are also tasked with building your fortune and taking over the town. The game takes place in the desert town of San Saba where you begin your journey to building your reputation and riches up to take over the whole state of Texas.

REVIEW: UnEpic

UnepicTitle

If you’re a fan of Metroidvania titles, you know, games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for example, UnEpic is a wonderful exploration title you’ll probably enjoy very much! I’ve already gushed a little bit about the game before, but there is a lot more to be said about the game itself. Available both on Steam and on the Wii-U eShop, I took a look at the console release that is available thanks to EnjoyUp publishing the title on Nintendo’s latest system. The best part that I’ve already noted is how much UnEpic feels like you’re living a comedic RPG web comic. (more…)

Nintendo surprised everyone, me at the very least, when they released information that their Mii life simulation game will finally be released in North America. The game has been out for sometime in Japan and has been wildly successful out there, selling more than 5.5 million copies. I had long hopes that the game would finally see a release here, but honestly didn’t think it would actually happen. Here’s my article last year about the Japanese release.

The announcement was made in a special Nintendo Direct. Take a look at that below:

A new Nintendo Direct video today revealed a ton of new details about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. video games for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Series creator Masahiro Sakurai hosted the video and announced that the launches of the games will be in different launch windows.

The Nintendo 3DS version of the game is planned for a release this summer, while the Wii U version is planned for a winter 2014 release window. Both games will be available in stores and in the Nintendo eShop. Sakurai also detailed many of the stages and items in both versions, described the games’ online functionality, revealed a new mode exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version and announced Greninja, a Pokémon from the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games, as a new playable character.

“New Super Smash Bros. games are a major event for video game fans everywhere, and present an experience that only Nintendo can offer,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Fans have two launches to look forward to this year, and they will want to get in plenty of practice with the Nintendo 3DS version so that they can be prepared for the launch of the Wii U game later in the year.”

I don’t know what it is about trading card games that are so addictive. There’s something about building your collection of cards from nothing to something very powerful that appeals to me, even in digital form. But Spirit Stones isn’t just another collectible trading card game. It’s something much more than that.

What do you get if a trading card game, a role-playing game AND a puzzle game collided? You would get one of the most addicting games I’ve played in a really long time.

At its core, Spirit Stones is a puzzle game. Much like other games you’ve probably played, this part of the game will feel very familiar. You are presented with the lower half of the screen filled with different coloured orbs. Using your finger you must swipe together three or more orbs of the same colour to eliminate them. Once you do more will fall from the top of the screen. Simple stuff, and there are four different coloured orbs: blue, red, green and yellow. Now here is where genres start to collide.
