The Kid Icarus series didn’t see the light of day for twenty years till Kid Icarus Uprising came out in 2012. Now it’s 2016 and Nintendo hasn’t done anything since besides including Dark Pit and Palutena as new playable characters in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS which released in 2014. While Kid Icarus Uprising wasn’t perfect, I think it’s one of the best 3DS games. Pit would be great to include in the initial lineup of titles for the “NX” when it arrives for many reasons.

Some Thoughts On Xenoblade Chronicles X…

Published May 24, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

XenobladeChroniclesX

The last time I talked about Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U, I gave it a review and you can read it right here. It wasn’t as great as I was hoping for it to be, but maybe that is partly due to having high expectations since I really enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles. However, the game wasn’t terrible either. For me, XCX is in the odd middle ground of sorts overall. In this article, I’ll be talking more depth about what worked and didn’t.

There will be some spoilers here for both XCX and XC if you read more, you have been warned.

Review: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies

Published May 12, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies continues the story by introducing new characters and having more cases to solve. I think it still holds up to the previous games and improved in some areas. The character development is great, except for how the spotlight kept going back and forth between Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes; to have Athena come to the agency when Apollo is still relatively new wasn’t the best idea, but it all works in the end. Let’s get going with the review! Read the rest of this entry →

Hey guys!

Published May 9, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

I’m sorry I took  a couple months off of blogging… I’ve been very busy! Rest assured, I’ll start doing weekly posts from here on out with multiple articles currently being worked on at the moment.

I may have to cancel my review of Splatoon if it continues to not work online due to my bad internet connection; it doesn’t make sense to leave that part out when that is the main part of the game and only talk about the campaign and battle dojo modes. I’ll definitely try it again later on this week since we managed to get a new internet provider that’s slightly better than the last one recently.

I’ll still do my overdue review of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies as well as my “Thoughts On Xenoblade Chronicles X” that will go over what I felt was done right and wrong for the spiritual successor.

There will be more to come! 🙂

Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles X (XCX) is one of great potential for sure, but did it succeed in meeting up with the high expectations and hype flowing from Xenoblade Chronicles (XC)? Personally, I mostly enjoyed XC, though it had problems towards the end with the story getting too stretched out and odd. Anyways, I’ll try to cover as much as I can in the review without spoilers, and then later on I’ll be doing another article detailing more on what worked and what didn’t.

Review: Child of Light

Published January 15, 2016 by Amanda B. Greene

Child of Light was the game-of-the-year in 2014 for many it seems, and I’m late to the party. I beat it recently and I truly enjoyed almost everything about it. The story and characters are good, suiting the fairytale theme. The music was alright, the song in the end credits and the main battle theme stood out. Beauty is clearly the focus point of this game because the art is amazing. I recommend Child of Light, whether it’s at full price or at a discount on occasion. Read the rest of this entry →
