By Spencer . November 7, 2007 . 2:10pm

I feel like posting up weekly release lists is pointless since plenty of other sites already do that However, this week it looks like two games are getting eclipsed by Call of Duty 4 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games.   From the world of the Wii, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is out […]

By Spencer . March 9, 2007 . 5:00pm

I haven’t had much time to spend with Fire Emblem: Goddess of Dawn, but so far it’s just the same Fire Emblem you know and love. The game uses classic controller style where you hold the remote like a Nintendo gamepad. Players use the D-pad to navigate around the battlefield. The “2” button confirms and […]
