The Nintendo 3DS is a great place to hang out if you like rhythm games. Rhythm Thief sneaked into the handheld in 2012, Final Fantasy Theatrhythm and its sequel crystallized the genre's staying power, and HarmoKnight hit all the right notes. The newest rhythmically-inclined title to land on the Nintendo 3DS via the eShop is Radiohammer. Radiohammer got its start as an iOS and Android game, but Arc System Works and the game's South Korea-based developer Vinyl Lab co-developed a 3DS port that is now available in the States thanks to Aksys Games. Eager to play a new rhythm game, I tuned my 3DS to this game's frequency and jammed to its music. While the game let me down in a few areas, I was generally impressed by its sense of style, memorable boss encounters, and replay value... (more)

With amiibo becoming a huge source of profit for Nintendo and a collecting craze for many fans of the company, it is no surprise to see Nintendo's games make use of the figures. While past games have used them to varying degrees- ranging from cosmetic unlockables, to alternate modes of play, to exclusive playable characters- Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival aims to take amiibo incorporation a step further, basing the entire game around the figures. On top of this, the title seeks to apply the world of Animal Crossing to the party game genre, a style of game that Nintendo has consistently pumped out solid releases for over the course of nearly 2 decades. Can Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival successfully translate what makes Animal Crossing enjoyable into an engaging party game while also integrating amiibo support, or will these demands prove to be too much?..

The first two Karate Kid movies were an integral part of my film entertainment when I was a kid, as they were for millions of other people during the 80s. They are considered cinematic classics to this day and are part of my own personal golden age of cinema. So, you can imagine how excited I was to find out that there was a videogame based one of my favorite movie franchises. I used to love this game when I was a kid. Back then, all I needed was four levels that vaguely resembled the movie to make me happy. I wasn't that discerning back then. I'd like to think that I have better taste now... (more)

Hatsune Miku and her fellow Vocaloids have sang their way to stardom, but I've largely overlooked the phenomenon up until now. It's a unique music sensation involving singing voice synthesizers known as "Vocaloids" that provide the vocals to a variety of catchy songs. This software is personified by Hatsune Miku and other characters that make up the cast of Sega's Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX. Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with these songs and fictional singers. I was, and still am to a certain degree. Just know that this is a quirky rhythm game with an upbeat personality and a wide variety of music that is fun to play along to. It's clearly a love letter to fans of Vocaloids, but those who have a taste for rhythm games will feel right at home with Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX... (more)

A little over a year ago I was at Best Buy and two guys were playing a demo of a game in which a ship is flying over some terrain and it would jump every once in a while to avoid obstacles. I know. Not much of a description. They didn't know the name of the game and I had to leave so I couldn't stick around to find out... (more)

Disney's The Little Mermaid movie came out in 1989 and it started a new era of modern Disney Princess/Prince movies. The movie was great and, of course, merchandise had to be made to go along with the movie. Disney already had a relationship with Capcom when it came to making games based on Disney properties (Adventures in the Magic Kingdom, Duck Tales, and Chip N' Dale's Rescue Rangers) so, naturally, they turned to Capcom to make the game based on this movie. The result is a solid, but very short game. Pretty good for its era but a bit lacking today... (more)

The world of fiction is a vast sea from which heroes are born, tested, and celebrated. Stories have been passed down from generation to generation, becoming recognizable worldwide for their iconic characters who perform inspiring and fantastical feats. Classic literature, a hallmark of classroom reading and bedtime stories, is one such source of fiction. The often extraordinary, explosive, and exciting world of comic books is another. Code Name S.T.E.A.M., a new turn-based strategy game from Nintendo and Intelligent Systems, dares to combine the time-tested pages torn from the novels of old with the heavily-stylized, action-packed pages ripped from comics. What we get is a world of fiction unlike any other, but even in Code Name S.T.E.A.M.'s brilliant fictional world, fun gameplay, strong level design, and high quality production values are strictly nonfiction...
