The Chase: Felix Meets Felicity Is One Part Love Story, One Part Platformer

By Spencer . November 10, 2008 . 6:39am

Way, way back at E3 I actually saw The Chase: Felix Meets Felicity. At the time the game didn’t have a name and it was strictly under embargo. At a first glance it’s easy to write off the game as either “kiddy” or “girly”, but, hey, I like to try new things so I gave […]

Jumping into N+

By Spencer . July 30, 2008 . 7:42pm

While playing the PSP version of N+ I watched my ninja plummet to his death over a hundred times. If you played N before you know dying is a natural part of the game. Everything kills you. Heights, lasers, mines, and robots that attack you without much of a reason are all deadly. You can […]

Ninjas stealthily restrain handheld N+ until July

By Spencer . April 17, 2008 . 10:59pm

Wondering where N+ is? We should have got it last month, but N+ won’t be coming out on the Nintendo DS or PSP until July. The extra time will allow the developers to refine the online components like map sharing.   With N on Xbox Live Arcade it looks like most people have forgotten about […]

By Spencer . April 17, 2008 . 1:22pm

Since Dragon Ball Z came to North America there have been so many Dragon Ball Z games. We get at least one a year and each new hardware cycle the games get closer to the look of the anime. In retrospect the only in Japan NES games don’t even feel close. Eye candy is one […]
