TNT Racers Review

by Diego Escala - on Jan 9th 2012 - 1 Comment

TNT Racers
Developer: Keen Games
Price: $9.99
Platform: PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, & Wii

TNT Racers ‘tracks & tricks’ subtitle seems a bit misleading once you play the game. I came in expecting a kart game mixed in with some race tracks and tricks to pull off in these tracks. All I got were race tracks with the occasional ramp to do a small jump off of. I don’t mean to start off in such a negative light, but I just thought that was worth noting to anyone considering to 2 friends I brought over to play it thought it was going to be a Joe Danger-ish kart racer when they saw it. TNT Racers is actually a pretty solid (albeit simple and content lacking) kart racer that hits most things you’d expect in the genre in the right ways. (more…)

SparklingBlue Plays The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

It’s no doubt that The Legend of Zelda has been a series that has touched all of our hearts as gamers. I could bore you with all the memories I have had with Link as I have watched the series grow and evolve with each new generation (but that is another post for another day), but even if you don’t know who Link is, you have to admit that Zelda, like Mario, pioneered many ideas and items we now take for granted such as battery backups (the original game on the NES), top down views (the original game, again), a large, non-linear world (once again, the original game), and a targeting system (Ocarina of Time), to name a few examples.

by SparklingBlue - on Nov 18th 2011 - No Comments

Mario and Sonic have become quite the Olympians as they’ve traveled across the world to compete in the last few Olympics. They kicked off their athletic adventures in Beijing in 2008, then traveled to Vancouver for last year’s Winter Olympics. Now, the dynamic duo has arrived in London for their latest offering on the Wii and 3DS–do gaming-dom’s most iconic characters put on a jolly good show in their latest incarnation as Olympic athletes?

Just to warn you, there are spoilers in here, so if you want to be surprised, click away now. (more…)

Epic Mickey Review

Epic Mickey
Developer: Junction Point Studios
Price: $50.00
Platform: Wii

It seems like ages since we’ve seen Mickey on the cover of a game but who bothers remembering when each game he’s been in has been mediocre at best? This time Junction Point Studios deliver Epic Mickey, quite possibly the best Mickey/Disney game released in years and it’s dripping in delicious Disney nostalgia. (more…)
