Check out the review of the game here: Jade Empire Review

Fun fact: Bioware used to be known for making good games. These days, it seems they’re more known for crushing their fans’ expectations than for their games, but they were once the king of RPGs. Jade Empire isn’t exactly a huge departure from their tried-and-true formula, basically being a mix between KOTOR and a 3D beat-em-up, but the combination actually works most of the time. I actually consider this to be one of Bioware’s best, and it’s surprisingly good given how little you’ve probably heard of it. Read more →

Donkey Kong Country Review

The Super Nintendo is one of the greatest consoles ever created. You can find platformers, role-playing games, shooters of every kind, sports games—everything under the sun was attempted, with varying degrees of success. Even with all of that competition, this subtext-filled game about a pedophile monkey and his underage partner (or maybe they’re just platonic friends, it’s hard to tell with monkeys) looking for their stolen “banana stash” is a major standout, and for all the right reasons.

Venetica Review

Whenever a game is said to have a lot of “heart,” I think back to horrible memories of completely broken games that weren’t worth their price. The only game that’s ever actually succeeded at having that promised “heart” is Venetica. It’s flawed and has quirks that will turn some people off, but if you can get past those problems, you’ll quickly find a game that you’ll want to play over and over again. Read more →

Metal Gear Solid Review

Metal Gear Solid for the original Playstation is a bittersweet experience. On one hand, it’s an incredible game. On the other hand, Hideo Kojima destroyed the franchise so badly with his rampant fan service later on in the series that much of the story feels absolutely meaningless. Read more →

Lufia: The Legend Returns Review

Lufia: The Legend Returns is basically Lufia 3. It’s also a Game Boy Color game, despite the previous two being on the Super Nintendo, which means that it has about as much “Lufia” in it as fast food has actual food. You bite into this game expecting some delicious Lufia, and *boom,* you get hit with filler and artificial garbage. It’s too bad, because the series seriously deserved better. Read more →

Sonic 2 Review

Sonic 2 is one of those rare games that come around once in a generation and define it. Sometimes twice in a generation, if it’s in the mood. Point is, games like this are rare. Read more →
