We Review: Teslagrad (Wii U)

Teslagrad is one of the latest in a wave of beautifully illustrated, beautifully programmed indie 2D games that we lucky gamers have a chance to experience. The game has seen some success on the PC, and now we have the Wii U version. I take the power into my own hands to see how electrifying the game can be.

[Update: Word from the developers (see comment below) is that Wii U Pro Controller support is coming in a patch, so that’s something to look out for!] Read more

Creepy October: Haunted House Girl

So, it being October, the month of Halloween and haunting and horror and other things that begin with “h”, we think it’d be good to get you into the mood by posting some creepy videos and stories from around the web. And by “web”, we probably mean “YouTube”. Nothing better than a nice, creepy video, right?

So without ado (or context), here’s your first vid, and we’re keeping it low for the initial scares. A creepy ghost girl. Possibly probably faked, but still effectively mildly creepy.

We Review: Super Smash Bros. (3DS)

Of all the highly anticipated titles this year, Super Smash Bros. has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. For the uninitiated, it’s a sprawling beat-em-up featuring a host of Nintendo’s greatest and toughest characters (and a few borrowed from …here and there, amongst other places). It’s a fabulous roster of fighting, and the 3DS version is upon us. I put on my fighting words and take the knocks to bring you this *knockout* review.

We Review: Bayonetta (Wii U Version)

The original Bayonetta first appeared on PS3 and Xbox360 about four years ago and it was received with differing amounts of criticism.

Film Review: Disney Planes 2: Fire and Rescue

Disney Planes was a spin-off film of Disney’s Cars, telling the story of Dusty Crophopper, a crop dusting airplane who aspires to the big world of airplane racing. The film wasn’t a huge success with critics (note: not the primary audience), but I understand that kids (note: the primary audience) enjoyed it. Now we have the sequel to the film, subtitled Fire and Rescue, which continues Dusty’s tale. Let’s go for a spin while I tell you about it.
