What Was That Video Game That Made You Say Im A Gamer For Life?

SchollA from Console ControllUs -where the console controls us writes:

Anyway I digress the point is when I came to this crossroad in life as Im sure many of you have; as we had to make one of the first critical, crucial, and biggest decisions we would ever make in our adult lives (lmboooooo) when asking ourselves Will I do this for life?

GamingExcellence: Pier Solar and the Great Architects Review

“From what I’ve seen in the games I’ve played, the greatest benefit to making a retro-styled game in the modern age is being able to not only avoid the worst game development choices of the past, but also being able to apply more modern gameplay sensibilities to whatever you do – you’ve got decades of knowledge tucked away regarding what does and doesn’t work. Pier Solar doesn’t. It’s a retro game that makes some of the worst choices of the old games of yore, like an interface that’s slow to navigate, battles that are slow and repetitive, a story …read more

Review: Cubemen 2 (Pure Nintendo)

Pure Nintendo: “Other than the lack of online games and my ability to adequately control the camera while defending my base, Cubemen 2 is a solid tower defense title. There is a lot of depth to the gameplay and it will require a lot of strategy from those who choose to tackle one of the many available levels. While Cubemen 2 isnt really my cup of tea, it is definitely worth every cent and players could potentially spend hours duking it out on the battlefield.” …read more

With nearly a year between releases, Im disappointed more wasnt done here to improve things even the same glitches from the 3DS version rear their head at times! I say wait for a discount before considering picking this game up. The $8.99 price seems high for whats here, though itll likely follow the 3DS versions with sales dropping the price under $5. While you wait, why not pick up …read more

Review: 99Seconds (Pure Nintendo)

Pure Nintendo: “Admittedly, a game of this style is a much better fit on a handheld. But that doesnt change the fact that this Wii U version is superior to its predecessor. With sharper visuals, better music, multiplayer support, and online leaderboards, 99Seconds on Wii U improves in many ways. If you have arcade sensibilities and like chasing high scores, 99Seconds is your kind of game. Its a fun and polished download, well worth just $2.49.” …read more
